    Need some opinions on security

    I've been spending the past few days trying to come up with a way to improve a general security schema on many different kinds of software, I'm a web designer first, and a programmer second, so my knowledge of actual security is very limited, but hopefully google and wikipedia have give me...

    load daemon at startup

    /home/user/chat/data/.daemon Maybe? I don't recall the exact format, but I do remember you need a dot to execute the file. Maybe it's ./home/usr/char/data/daemon

    Anybody Running OSCommerce?

    VZPP Backups

    Under VZPP there's a maintenance tab, I created a backup through that since I plan on performing a few upgrades / maintenance on my account, and seeing how I haven't performed any real server administration for well over two years, I thought I would back it up. The backup size lists only as...

    I must say, I'm quite impressed with Known Host so far. I heard a lot of great things from WHT and decided to try it out (the incredible discount paid no small role either). I'm quite impressed that on a Saturday I was able to get such prompt sales responces, and such a quick setup (little bit...
