This is very useful when working with VPSes where you can’t paste into the VNC connection (maybe I’m doing something wrong and you can?). Below is a quick piece of code I use. This should be ran as the user and not root. This sleeps for 5 seconds so you can navigate to where you need. sleep 5s; xdotool type CODE_TO_TYPE_HERE This is very easy and simple, but since I just switched to Debian full time from Windows it was a nice/easy way.
I recnetly decided to switch to Debian full time for my personal laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga Gen 3), after using it for a week or so I noticed that when I closed the lid it would die after less than a day. After some googleing I found the answer and they are below. I also noticed that the machine never seemed to wake up like it did on Windows (just open it and it should come alive), after switching over to deep_sleep it fixed that issue.
Here’s a couple tips and tricks while using dd on Linux You can view the status of an on-going dd command (I always forget to run with progress or the version you’re using doesn’t have it) You will need another terminal window. Not a problem for me as I always use tmux, some people say screen it better. Find PID of dd process -> ps aux | grep -v grep | grep dd
I always add a file into /etc/sudoers.d/, just remeber the last entry is trump, so it can overturn the first entries. Because of this I always like to name the files like below. /etc/sudoers.d/999_nick /etc/sudoers.d/001_rick /etc/sudoers.d/111_slick-rick /etc/sudoers.d/222_slick-nick This means if there’s an entry in 999_nick that conficts with any of the others it will trump the other configs. This is how to run without password and only specific program, this is useful, for example my telegraf config when it has to run an exec, but the telegraf user doesn’t have perms.
Make sure Backblaze is working with Cloudflare. This can be found HERE Uncomment out the below. I made my Backblaze URL s3.DOMAIN.COM nano /etc/pleroma/config.exs # Configure S3 support if desired. # The public S3 endpoint (base_url) is different depending on region and provider, # consult your S3 provider's documentation for details on what to use. # config :pleroma, Pleroma.Upload, uploader: Pleroma.Uploaders.S3, base_url: "https://s3.DOMAIN.COM/file" # config :pleroma, Pleroma.

Unfortunately it doesn’t appear cPanel allows you to easily change the username. Most documentation I’ve read says to use the “Rearrange an Account” option, but if you only have one disk that doesn’t seem to get you an option. The downside to this is that is doesn’t fully do a normal restore it will restore the new account to the new directory, but it will symlink the old username to the new directory.
First you have to install acme.sh. I like using acme.sh because it’s all bash based. As with all posts I take no responsibility for anything and this is more of a quick help instead of a full guide. I have a script that I use to deploy my WordPress sites. The only thing I recommend is if you use it make sure to add the xml-rpc.php block. I haven’t added that to it yet.

Use this to see free space parted /dev/sdX print free Then this to expand parted /dev/sdX (parted) resizepart Partition number? ENTER NUMBER FROM ABOVE THAT HAS THE LVM End? [1075MB]? 100% (parted) q Then now since this was on a server that uses LVM you have to resize the PV

I just learned that you can remote control terminal sessions. They call it shadowing. I’ve only done it on Windows Server 2012 r2, but was super easy. You just need to open server manager, go to remote desktop services, then collections, then QuickSessionsCollections. Then you’ll see the connections in the upper right hand corner. Once you find the one you want you right click on the session and hit Shadow. By default this will ask the user to allow, if you want to override that and allows allow you can do the following group policy change.
This is probably useful to figure out how to reverse proxy Apache behind NGINX, but I was finally able to get NextCloud working on NGINX with no problem I like to use NGINX as my web server because that’s what I’ve always worked with. I’ve tried a couple times to get NGINX to work with NextCloud, but it would also end up not letting me log in. I did some Googleing and I guess it has something to do with how the cache is handled in NGINX.
