Installing Drupal Part I

The Drupal setup portion was pretty easy, I just had to create a database and provide the database login credentials to the Drupal install page. This page is the default page of where you put the install. After this, I was able to post and do all sorts of things. I did hit a hitch though, when I started playing around with the Drupal "Administer/Site configuration Clean URLs/Clean URL's". At first it wasn't enabled, and of course for Search Engine Optimization I wanted them to work. I knew this could only be done by a .htaccess file, but where was it? Well, after further searching on Google I find this little article: Where it tells you what needs to be in the missing .htaccess file, however the information they provided was: RewriteEngine on RewriteBase / RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA] Which then gave me an Internal 500 server error, and I kinda new what was going on. But I was being kinda lazy about it. I checked the apache2 log: [Thu Jun 14 13:17:58 2007] [alert] [client] /home/geektank/public_html/.htaccess: <Directory not allowed here, referer: You will need to remove the "<Directory" portions to make it work as .htaccess files can't have this information, otherwise they will get this error. Duh, I mean it even said on the the Drupal page about the information they provided: If you don't use the .htaccess that comes with Drupal you'll need to add some rewrite rules into your apache directory directive. Consult the .htaccess file in Drupal for examples of rules. I was still getting a 500 Internal Server Error, and I saw this in the apache2 error log: [Thu Jun 14 13:18:22 2007] [alert] [client] /home/geektank/public_html/.htaccess: Invalid command 'RewriteEngine', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration, referer: LOL, I didn't enable mod_rewrite in apache2. Mind you this is a new install of Debian Etch, so I just did a2enmod rewrite and viola, nice clean links! Now I just need to get the formatting down for Drupal. I'm use to MediaWiki, which powns.

Detect insider threats with Linux auditing

Detect insider threats with Linux auditing -

Organizations of all sizes need to mitigate the risk of insider threats. Misconduct by authorized users represents a grave threat to an organization. According to the 2005 Computer Security Institute and Federal Bureau of Investigation Computer Crime and Security Survey, organizations reported that computer intrusions from inside sources accounted for nearly half of all incidents. You can secure your network perimeter with intrusion detection systems, firewalls, and virus scanners, but don't neglect to monitor authorized users. The Linux Audit daemon can help you detect violations of your security policies.

Featured Windows Download: Manage Multiple Remote Desktop Connections with mRemote

LifeHacker has a review up on their site about a little application called 'mRemote'. This is quite a piece of software and you can tell that the developers have spent some time on it. I have always been an advocate of being more organized and efficient. With mRemote everything that you need is in one screen, and everything that was left out with Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client is in mRemote. Tabbed windows, supports RDP, VNC, SSH2 and telnet protocols. There is also a connection manager, so you can setup all your connections and then point and click to connect.
