Setting up a LAMP stack on Debian

in Linux, PHP, Debian, MySQL, Apache

I just setup a development enviroment using Debian as my distro. I noted however that when using tasksel (the wizard during installation) to install an SQL server, I got PostgreSQL. Nothing personal with it, I just haven't used it much, and thus hate all the non-MySQL behaviour quirks it has. It just had to go.

Galleria per content type

in PHP, drupal, Module, Galleria

Galleria is a popular image gallery module for Drupal 6, which leverages the jQuery Galleria module. It also integrates nicely with Lightbox, Imagecache, and jCarousel. Unfortunately, the publicly available version allows for only global settings, not allowing you to have, for example, a vertical jCarousel for one content type and an horizontal one for another. Hence, this hacked version.

Twitter module while stuck with PHP 5.1.6

in Linux, PHP, twitter, drupal

Building a new site today assumes that everything social should come with the box -- not even in it. Within the first question a client asks is how this whole twitter-thing works, and how he can use it. Of course Drupal provides modules to integrate with these, but what if you're stuck on a host  "playing it safe" and sticking with PHP 5.1.6 ( that is, all RedHat, CentOS providers that won't use custom compiled packages )?

Creating your first Facebook app

in PHP, facebook

Facebook has changed their API on the 11th of March, 2011. The main feature is allowing you to create application using iFrames instead of FBML -- which is great! The problem is that I spent half a day for something that should only take 10mins; that is, figuring out what you need to do in order to integrate your custom PHP code with Facebook.

Getting rid of FastBrowserSearch in Firefox

I know it sounds like a no-brainer. You simply click on the little search engine logo next to your search box, and you're back to enjoying you favorite search engine. What happens when that logo is set to e.g. Google, and searching from your main URL bar takes you to some other engine (usually FastBrowserSearch)? How can you (finally!) get rid of that?

Installing Redmine on RHEL5

in RedHat, Redmine, Plesk

In the last post, I discussed why you need to bother with a project management tool like RedMine. And I'm quite certain I mentioned that it's kind of a pain to install in RedHat... so here's a step by step howto for future reference.

On project management, Redmine, and RHEL5

in RedHat, Redmine, Project Management

If you have ever been involved in any sort of project, you will know that one of the biggest pains involved in the process is communicating with whoever had the idea for the project. They always "thought it a bit different", or even better "didn't expect it would look like this", even when their project is 100% up to their specs. This post is about the what, next up is the how.

Remove PDF passwords in Ubuntu

in Ubuntu, PDF

Have you ever bought a book in PDF format, only to receive it with the annoying password protection popup? You know, the ones that come with digital downloads and/or "free" copies that escort payed hard copies, where you need to type your e-mail every single time you open them. Hey, I'm all for protecting your content and such, but this just feels like I'd get more value if I downloaded a pirated copy!

Cisco Correct Time

in Cisco

Short post before I forget -- don't know the extent of its uses beyond log / debug messages, but I would really like my router to know what time of the day it is... and properly update / compensate for summer time.

Cisco DHCP Configuration

in Cisco, DHCP

Next on the list is settings up a simple DHCP server, to be able to assign IP addresses to devices joining the network. That should make it really easy to add new hardware to your network without fiddling around with configurations for each and every one of them, plus your house guests are spared of your network's internals!

Cisco IOS update, enable ethernet

in Cisco, Ubuntu

Having actually managed to connect to the router via console, I thought I'd be capable of doing some simple configuration tests with the router. Well, that turned out to only be half true, since there still were some kinks with the way Cisco has decided to plumb its products. I set the following tasks to do for today:

  • Update IOS to the latest version I happened to have ( 12.4-15.T8 )
  • Make the router available via Ethernet telnet

Ubuntu, Minicom & Cisco router console connection

in Cisco, Ubuntu

Got a nice Cisco 857w to play around with yesterday :) Before you get into any misconceptions let me tell you that I've never before made my own configuration in a Cisco router, but I really (really!) want to learn about it ( hey, stop snickering! ).

So... first things first - wipe out the router config, I thought, and start from scratch. I managed to do THAT part pretty easily, however, as any knowing person will tell you, that leaves all ethernet ports down... so here comes the console cable to the rescue! If you can actually make it to work :P

Make SSH faster

in Ubuntu, Linux

Well, at least the login part. For some (very) weird reason, some distros think that everyone is part of some huge, corporate environment -- thus making Kerberos and GSSAPI logins the default methods.
Is there a problem with that ? Well, not directly - you only need to wait until SSH can understand that login just ain't gonna happen that way, and fallback to the good' old username/password asking. The real problem is that it can...take...AGES!
