    ssh-agent in group nobody

    I am trying to learn about my new VPS. I see in Apache Cookbook, section 6-22, the recommendation to run: find / -user nobody find / -group nobody to protect the server from malicious scripts When I ran those on my VPS, the only thing weird I found is that ssh-agent is in group nobody. Why...

    What's so bad about Virtuozzo's firewall?

    Thanks for the link ... a lot of features, most of them I don't understand what they are about. As you say, as a single VPS owner, I probably don't need any of this. So, I'll stick with Virtuozzo's firewall. Thanks for the info, Louis

    What's so bad about Virtuozzo's firewall?

    Yes, the Virtuozzo firewall can open or close ports just fine. Is there anything else that another firewall can do and that is really useful? Louis

    Enabling PHP

    All right, this is it. Renaming it did the trick. Thanks a lot! I thought Apache didn't care: .html, .php or anything. Is there a configuration somewhere for that? Louis

    Enabling PHP

    Hi Paul, Nothing between the php tags gets displayed. The HTML before the PHP tags is displayed. The same code runs fine on my local server: <?php echo "php is here"; phpinfo(); ?> error_log doesn't show anything when I access that page error_log shows "PHP/5.2.5 configured" each time I...

    Enabling PHP

    Could be a newbie question, but I have not found the solution anywhere. I have a brand new VPS, everything seems to be set up correctly but when I try to use php (either phpinfo() or any echo statement), nothing happens. I have done a fair amount of reading, I have played with the options in...
