    See past commands issued

    This is a hypothetical question So let's say my friend promises I can trust him to SSH into my Debian-based Linux VPS hosted on a VPS provider Is there a way to view every command he's entered in the logs without the possibility that he deleted malicious log entries? Or some program that can...

    Forum with more specialized Email knowledge?

    I'm looking to hire a programmer with real deep knowledge of how TLS packets are handled by email servers. Anyone know a forum similar to this, but hyper-focused on email?

    Forward TLS packets for encrypted email

    My question is more related to IMAP email than Linux. But I’d be using Linux to do it, so I thought to ask here. So email is encrypted by TLS until it gets to the server. Is it possible given the existing IMAP email technology, to setup a customized VPS server that just forwards 100% of the...

    SOLVED: mv command with no destination?!?! omg it's gone?

    I realized the issue was once you add the dot to the find command, it only does that directory and not the sub directories! Once I narrowed it down, the file showed up with the commands you suggested. Is there a way to get the subs too? *marked this as solved now

    download a file from VPS

    I'm back with another noob question that has become a struggle. I appreciate all the help guys, I'm sorry in advance so I'm looking to download a .txt file from my VPS to the local PC. (both local PC & VPS are Debian) I can't use wget or curl because those are for external websites right? So...

    SOLVED: mv command with no destination?!?! omg it's gone?

    I did a search by .bak using the command osprey gave and it's still not showing up! Also wouldn't a search by the name have it show up, even if it has a .key in the end? In other words, if I do: find . goat it would return a file named "goat.key.bak" right?

    SOLVED: mv command with no destination?!?! omg it's gone?

    So I was following a guide and the guy did a move command without a destination. I thought it made like a copy or something. But it had brackets at the end like this: mv folders/file.key{,.bak} now I can't find the file. even if I search by file extension like: find . *.key is the file...

    No Files in the VPS? (noob question)

    ok I figured it out. the issue was that I was SSH into a root user folder. so have to "cd .." to get to the REAL home folder so if you do SSH [email protected] then this takes you to a folder as though root was a user

    No Files in the VPS? (noob question)

    Hi I am new, please forgive me. So I have a VPS with Debian. If I do an "ls" command, there are no files/folders. Like where is my "etc" folder?

    Block Root Access? New OS on VPS!

    Hey thanks so much for the information. I am impressed by the knowledge on this forum. I have been searching for a guide now online on how to install a linux .iso without using the VPS vendor's tools/GUI at all. But each guide keeps going back to that. Is it possible to do this entirely from...

    Block Root Access? New OS on VPS!

    Okay thanks for the advice. So you're saying that changing the OS doesn't matter at all?

    Block Root Access? New OS on VPS!

    I'm interested in engaging in controversial free speech. I am well aware that a VPS provider can literally pull the plug and shut my VPS down. And there's nothing I can do about that. However, what is more concerning is my VPS provider said they can change the root password. Which would mean...
