26 Nov 2011 Matteo Mattei linux mysql php apc tricks
If you are running PhpMyAdmin and APC, it can happens that you get some errors like these:
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function PMA_log_user() in /usr/share/webapps/phpMyAdmin/libraries/common.inc.php on line 914
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function PMA_select_language() in /usr/share/webapps/phpMyAdmin/libraries/auth/cookie.auth.lib.php on line 220
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function pma_generate_common_url() in /usr/share/webapps/phpMyAdmin/libraries/header_meta_style.inc.php on line 48
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function PMA_DBI_connect() in /srv/http/librolandia.it/test/phpmyadmin/libraries/common.inc.php on line 916
PHP Fatal error: Class 'PMA_Error_Handler' not found in /path/to/phpMyAdmin/libraries/common.inc.php on line 58
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function PMA_getenv() in /path/to/phpMyAdmin/libraries/common.inc.php on line 143
If this is the case, you need to make some little changes to disable apc in your phpmyadmin virtual host:
Alias /phpmyadmin "/usr/share/webapps/phpMyAdmin"
Allow from all
php_admin_value open_basedir "/srv/:/tmp/:/usr/share/webapps/:/etc/webapps:/usr/share/pear/"
php_admin_value apc.enabled 0
And also modify your apc filter in php.ini under the APC section:
Now restart Apache and you phpMyAdmin should work regularly.
28 Aug 2011 Matteo Mattei python pyside qt thread
In these days I started studying PySide. After some days spent in reading lot of stuff, I thought that a real example could be useful for who intends to start learning PySide as well. In this example I can show you how you can implement a custom signal (MySignal) together with the usage of threads with QThread.
The following code creates a window with two buttons: the first starts and stop a thread (MyThread) that runs a batch that prints a point in the stdout every seconds continuously. The second button lets you only start another thread (MyLongThread) that prints an asterisk in the stdout every second for 10 seconds.
This example uses the api version 2 (introduced with PyQt 4.5) to connect signals to slots.
For more information you can look at:
27 Jul 2011 Matteo Mattei c/c++ linux python
If you have root access but you need to run some applications/scripts with some other user credentials you can do it with
su - username -c "command to execute"
But if you need to do it within a C/C++ program you need to write something like this:
This is how to compile and execute the above code:
[root@barracuda ~]# gcc mysu.c -o mysu
[root@barracuda ~]# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) gruppi=0(root),1(bin),2(daemon),3(sys),4(adm),6(disk),10(wheel),19(log)
[root@barracuda ~]# ./mysu matteo /bin/bash
[matteo@barracuda /root]$ id
uid=1000(matteo) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),3(sys),10(wheel),14(uucp),91(video),92(audio),93(optical),95(storage),96(scanner),97(camera),98(power),108(vboxusers)
The same result could be obtained also in Python with a very little effort:
20 Jun 2011 Matteo Mattei relax hard disk jokes security
Since a REALLY secure Hard Disk erase procedure does not exist, the only way to clean every private data from a storage device is to use a powerful tool. Today we experimented the secure data cleaning on a 2.5” HD with an hammer. Yes, you have understood, an HAMMER!!! What’s more powerful than an hammer?!
This is the result of our experiment:
Any further feedback is really appreciated!
