    403 Forbidden error

    I have done this similarly in the past on my laptop. Instead of using the default /var/www/html directory, I redirect the webpages to a mounted file system on another drive. I do this by going into /etc/apache2/sites available and editing the 2 files there. On my laptop, I redirect it to a...

    file system group access borked?

    I have just mounted an NFS file system on my computer. On my laptop, if I set the directory permissions to root:carl 770, I can access just fine. However, I need to make sure other users can access as well. So I created a group called nfs-users and made myself a member. I then did chmod...

    Ubuntu Server and software RAID

    I previously posted that I wanted to setup a server with RAID. I did that but settled on a non-server desktop install. The hardware's a bit old and was having trouble getting things to cooperate. I have 1 TB disks that I partitioned into 2 slices, 1 for the OS (no Raid) and 1 on all 3 for...

    Linux Remote Desktop - How-to, the safe way

    I just saw another thread about this on the forum that was locked. The OP posted something that appeared to be not a good idea, but Remote Desktoping into your Linux box IS a good idea, especially if you run a headless node, or are just too lazy to get up and go over to the other computer. I...

    hardware crash

    I have Kubuntu installed on my desktop computer. Yesterday it crashed and rebooted. However, it couldn't get to the grub menu without rebooting again. This happened before and turned out to be a bad power supply. But this one is not even 2 years old, so I find it hard to believe that it's...

    Taking suggestions on new home server hardware

    I want to setup a Linux NAS server for my home. I have an old case with power supply, so that's taken care of. I of course want it to run Linux, thinking Fedora because I really like it and it can help me stay on my enterprise server game, since it's basically RHEL(ish). What I learn at work...

    Can't use Linux to make a USB visible in Windows

    Just a little background first. I have a dual boot computer but left very little room for the Windows partition. I only use Windows for firmware updates from Dell and to play Fallout 4. I just bought Fallout 76 and it needed 60 freaking gigs. OMG. I only had 10 available. So I used KDE...

    What's your favorite Desktop Environment?

    Vote and tell us why you like DE X (because I've never used anything else is acceptable). If you select other, please reply to the thread with which other you prefer. I saw some old threads on this, but no poll. I thought it would be cool to see some numbers. I wanted to add a couple other...

    How To's on setting up new Distro like the old, complete with apps

    A major headache when reinstalling your OS is losing all your settings and all your customizations of your desktop. This isn't a headache you have to endure though. If you have a persistent home partition, all your customizations will be retained. If you have an install script, all your...

    PPAs, can you trust them?

    Spinning off a new topic from Wiz's post https://www.linux.org/threads/snapcraft.23054/#post-68368. So Wiz, there have been some PPA's I've trusted because the site I found them on was a reputable site. But overall, how does one determine that a PPA can be trusted? If you go to...

    Figured I probably aught to do this

    I've been visiting Linux.org for a while now but never introduced myself. I figured I probably aught to do that. My name is Carl, 52. I live in Chicago now, but I've lived in MI, FL, OK and TX, US. Career-wise most of it was Windows Server support. I"m not doing Linux server deployment...
