Re: systemd journal vs rsyslog

I think the default in centos 8, is to use rsyslog to store logs under /var/log and use systemd's journal for temporary memory storage only. There is no /var/log/journal by default.

Eventually (maybe RHEL 9?) they will follow Fedora and use the journal for all logging.

Re: Ralink RT5370 USB Wifi: slow and dropping out

Sorry I can't remember what it was... its been a several years since then. It was a short period of time when I was redoing the wired network, so a few desktops needed wifi capability, thus the need for those dongles. Never used them again. Interestingly, I still have the Ralink dongle that had bad ...

Re: Ralink RT5370 USB Wifi: slow and dropping out

I've had a very bad experience with another Ralink adapter, their drivers are badly coded and of low quality. Eventually, I scrapped it for another USB dongle that used different chipset. I would suggest, you either move to Fedora (which comes with a very recent kernel) or if you want stay with Cent...

Re: The implications of some security settings

A separate /tmp partition mounted with noexec,nosuid,nodev is a very important security feature and it is highly recommended for production systems. This prevents all kinds of attacks after compromise, the /tmp is readable and writeable but pretty useless for anything else. A malware will usually do...

Re: WHM Server update from Centos 6 to 7 and then 8 HELP

I used WHM's backup feature, to backup each hosted account from the old server, and then I used a script to migrate the cPanel/WHM backup into a plain CentOS 8 server.

I'll send you details via PM.

Re: What do you think of the recent Red Hat announcement about CentOS Linux/Stream?

WOW Two recent flaws have been found in openssl, which are deemed important. Redhat rushed and patched their source code on March 24-25 and released openssl packages for RHEL8 on March 30. CentOS of course gets nothing for now. AlmaLinux had updated openssl packages by March 31st. Things are looking...

Re: CENTOS 8 Problems HTTPD does not start anymore

I think you should talk to the person who setup the server for you.

Your log file gives errors, like:

AH00526: Syntax error on line 18 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf

Re: Anyone can install Openssl 1.1.1j successfully?

You can't do that in CentOS, you can't just replace a system-dependent package with something custom. Openssl is a major package and tons of other packages have been compiled to depend on it and its particular version+patches, as created by Redhat for RHEL. In other words, you can't replace it, you ...

Re: Renaming multiple, similar named files at a time via command line...

Code: Select all

rename "minecraft_server" "vanilla-" minecraft_server.*.jar
the above will rename in the current directory files like:

minecraft_server1.jar

to:

vanilla-1.jar

is that what you want or did I misunderstood?

Re: Question on httpd conf and systemd services - are these permission issues?

It depends... in some cases that is not a drawback but a feature. There are cases when a site owner wants to be able to freely write anything within the hosting space. In addition, you may opt to have a tree structure under public_html with no write permissions, either restricted by SELinux contexts...
