Here’s what I use in /etc/ntp.conf. The restrict lines below originated from Ubuntu. The iburst and maxpoll 9 settings are necessary in FreeBSD to avoid ntpd switching between PLL and FLL modes every now and then.Read More → Restricting NTP access
Jeg tenkte at jeg skulle dele med dere et lite avkrysningsskjema som jeg lagde i formiddag. Det er en god del ting som skal gjøres for hver FreeBSD-maskin i forbindelse med oppgradering. I stedet for å fortsette å bruke Post-It-lapper, så brukte jeg pdfLaTeX og lagde koden for skjemaet som dere ser under. Dersom du […]Read More → Oppgraderingstabell for FreeBSD
Tell rkhunter to ignore /etc/passwd by inserting EXISTWHITELIST=”/etc/passwd” in your rkhunter configuration file. If you prefer not to make this change to your configuration file, make sure you run rkhunter –propupd with the same PATH as given in /etc/crontab. A command like env -i PATH=/etc:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin rkhunter –propupd should suffice. Thanks to Mr. Torfinn Ingolfsen for […]Read More → rkhunter complaining about /etc/passwd?
It’s meaningless to check the syntax of Apache’s configuration files more than once during the same invocation of the startup script for Apache 2.2.x on FreeBSD, when the specified action is, say restart or graceful. Here’s a small patch.Read More → No need the check the syntax of Apache’s configuration files more than once
The default startup script for PostgreSQL on FreeBSD doesn’t give much clue when starting and stopping the DBMS. Here’s a patch to remedy this annoyance.Read More → A verbose startup script for PostgreSQL on FreeBSD
Something was wrong with the combination of PHP 5.3.5, php-mysql 5.3.5, and MySQL 5.5.8 on FreeBSD 8 earlier this month. Any attempt to run the command php -v resulted in PHP hanging after outputting the “Zend line”. Either kill(1) the process or type C-c to put it out of its misery, but neither action is […]Read More → Minor difficulties with PHP 5.3.5, php-mysql 5.3.5, and MySQL 5.5.8 on FreeBSD 8, now solved
I upgraded one of my systems to FreeBSD 8.2-PRERELEASE the other day. Next, I upgraded rkhunter to 1.3.8 on the same system. The output of the sockstat command sometimes contains more information than rkhunter is prepared to handle, resulting in different outputs from netstat and sockstat. rkhunter treats this as an infection. Maybe it is. […]Read More → rkhunter 1.3.8 and sockstat on FreeBSD 8.2-PRERELEASE
