Resetting Lost Root Password in Ubuntu when “single” fails.

Background Story (skip)

Quite a few times a year I head out to my best friend Eric’s place back in Ontario. We’ve known each other for the better part of our lives as we met in high school.  One of the passions we share is the Linux operating system, although different ends of the spectrum.  Eric is more into Ubuntu, and he runs it for his work and personal servers, as well as his desktop.  I on the other hand prefer Red Hat based systems, working on servers running Red Hat or CentOS, and have extensively used Fedora as a workstation for my work (although my home PC is still Windows based), and most recently I did switch to Zorin Pro (Ubuntu derivative) and currently use Arch Linux for my workstation for professional use.…

TLDR:

Centos 8:

Oracle Linux 8:

NOTE: if you absolutely need to have “epel-release” installed due to dependancies on Oracle Linux – then use the rpm way:

With the news late last year, that Redhat was killing off CentOS, there was a shockwave throughout the industry.  To those outside of the linux server environment, I am not sure you could comprehend the vast affect this will have. …

VestaCP offsite backup script

Matthew 0 Comments

I have always been an advocate for using a control panel when dealing with multi site hosting.  In my case I use VestaCP, which is a great, simple, free alternative to the big boys like Plesk and cPanel.  The only issue though, is space for backups.  On the server I normally have 3 to 5 days backed up, which is great, however if you find out your site had been hacked 7 days ago, all your backups on the server are tainted.  This happened to me a few years back, and one of my sites was hacked for almost a month before I found out.…

Creating a Local LAN with Zerotier

Matthew 0 Comments

I have been meaning to create a video about this for some time.  I am a tech fanatic, and when a better solution than Hamachi crossed my path, I was instantly indulging myself with its vast capabilities.  Zerotier is an amazing application.  It can be used to create a Local LAN so that gamers can play legacy titles like Warcraft III and the like, but it can also be “privatized” giving you full control over who has access to your network.  I have tested it on Windows and Linux, and use several personally created networks to play games with my friends back in Ontario, as well as administer my web servers, and lock down SSH to use only the internal network.…
