Reset your Settings for any Program

Post date: November 11, 2007, 05:11 Category: Desktop Views: 3030 Comments
Tutorial quote: Ever messed with settings and majorly screwed something up? I have.

Yesterday I was trying to pull a stunt by trying to embed Konsole in my KDE desktop and when I restarted the X server I had no desktop icons and couldn’t even get back to my settings to change it back! I was thinking OMG, RRR (Repartition, Reformat, Reinstall) time.

But wait, what if I just clear out my settings? Kind of a crude way of doing it, but it worked.

How To Back Up MySQL Databases Without Interrupting MySQL

Post date: May 12, 2007, 23:05 Category: System Views: 3632 Comments
Tutorial quote: This article describes how you can back up MySQL databases without interrupting the MySQL service. Normally, when you want to create a MySQL backup, you either have to stop MySQL or issue a read lock on your MySQL tables in order to get a correct backup; if you do not do it this way, you can end up with an inconsistent backup. To get consistent backups without interrupting MySQL, I use a little trick: I replicate my MySQL database to a second MySQL server, and on the second MySQL server I use a cron job that creates regular backups of the replicated database.

How to scan your Linux-Distro for Root Kits

Post date: May 19, 2006, 18:05 Category: Security Views: 3242 Comments
Tutorial quote: Do you suspect that you have a compromised system ?
Check now for root kits that the intruder may have installed !!!

So... What in the hell is a root kit ???
A root kit is a collection of programs that intruders often install after they have compromised the root account of a system.
These programs will help the intruders clean up their tracks, as well as provide access back into the system.
Root kits will sometimes leave processes running so that the intruder can come back easily and without the system administrator's knowledge !

Solution....
Scripts like chkrootkit will do the job for you automatically.
