Today I got a call to be notified that a Joomla-powered website went down. The error message is the core file could not be opened due to permission. I checked the file system and found all PHP files had been changed permission as 200 (User Write only). I don’t know why caused it, but I believe it did something with the mal-ware alerted by Google Webmaster tool yesterday.
I installed ubuntu 9.10 on one of my laptops with GNOME desktop environment, but unfortunately it worked very slow due to the limited memory of 256 MB. So I decided to switch to xfce desktop environment. After I installed xfce on top of GNOME then remove all package of gnome, I started to have some different issues as I had in the Ubuntu GNOME environment. Today I just wanted to talk about the flash player plug-in installation on Firefox issue here.
It is very easy for me to forget this command option, and it always take me some time to get it right when I try to copy a directory from one of my website to another website.
And I found out it is always easier when I come into the destination directory and run the cp command.
So to be summarized, I put this command with option here to make me to REMEMBER: how to easily copy a directory from one folder to another folder in Apache/Linux server.
cp -R ~/source-directory-name .
Here ~/source-directory-name is whatever you want to copy from, and please do not forget the period . at the end which is your current directory (A.K.A, your copy-to destination directory).
