General Linux Stuff

This is some documentation based on Linux things which have driven me crazy. This document is more for my reference than anything else, so don't complain about accuracy, but it's nice to share!


Make_sock errors and SSL errors when restarting Apache

When restarting Apache if you are getting the following errors:

Syntax error on line 127 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf:
SSLCertificateFile: file '/etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt' does not exist

and / or

(13)Permission denied: make_sock: could not bind to address

check to see if your server knows it's hostname. I had issues after a powercut, and basically my server had forgotten it's hostname locally. Strange that I could ping "LINUX" from my network, but pinging "LINUX" from the actual server didn't work at all. Quick fix - add "LINUX" to the host file pointing to it's physical address.

ie in /etc/hosts LINUX

Getting VNC to launce KDE automatically

The paths listed here may vary on your server, these happen to be mine.

> cd ~/.vnc/

> vi xstartup

in the xstartup file add the line in bold:

xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
twm &
/etc/X11/xdm/Xsession kde &
