How to reset root password in Ubuntu?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 12, 2007
I just got done with installing Ubuntu in VMWare. Installer asked me for a username and password which I can now use to log in and out. Installer never asked me for root password. So, what is the root password, and how can I change it?
How to Reset Ubuntu Network Without Reboot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 20, 2008
Once in a while my home wireless network burbs, and I need to reconnect. . Kubuntu's network manager tries to reconnect to my network and hangs.
I have tried /etc/init.d/networking restart, and this does not cause a reconnect.
All I want to do is bring the network down and restart it without rebooting. Doing things like this is what makes Linux great; I'm just trying to research the steps.
How to reset Xfce to "factory" settings in Etch ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 18, 2007
My 2 Etch boxes are doing perfect, thanks to the help of some posters here. On one of the boxes, I experiment problem in Xfce : I am missing the "window frame" (the bar on top of the window, with the "minimize", "maximize" and "close" buttons).
I think it is because the first time I used Xfce, its default resolution was 1280x1024, on a 17" CRT monitor that is better under 1024x768 res'... So I booted under Gnome, edited xorg.conf, and all was fine... Except that Xfce behaves funny.
I have to mention that it is only the case under my own user account. When I boot Xfce under my wife's account, it is absolutely fine.
So here's my question :
-Is there a way to reset Xfce to its "factory" settings , or its default configuration ?
Thanks in advance for your advices,
How to restart / reset network in 10.10 without reboot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 9, 2011
until recently I was facing a problem with my connection: while the system was booting, everything was ok, except the network connection-> it refused to connect, and no command was possible to enable networking without rebooting the system [the command /etc/init.d/networking restart did NOT work].
As a result:
and change, as root, the contents of the file
sudo vim interfaces
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
if you have dynamic address.
If you cannot connect, the commands:
sudo ifdown eth0
sudo ifup eth0

Quick question: how can I reset my laptop's IP address in Ubuntu 9.04? My printer isn't working, and I think that will solve the problem (error 5012) based on other threads I've read. Thanks in advance!
How to reset/restart a tty from another tty?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 20, 2008
I tried using the TMOUT shell variable to achieve an automatic logout after a certain time of inactivity. This is working well in pseudo terminals (/dev/pts/...): when the time expires the shell window closes.
In ttys, however, the shell performs the logout as expected, but then does not show the login prompt and remains somehow frozen; if logged as ordinary user I can not write anything, while if logged as root I can write but anything I write (escape char included) produces any effects at all except appearing on the screen.
I suppose the terminal does not automatically restart after the automatic logout.
Is this a normal behaviour (I'm running Fedora9)?
How can I fix it?
And, by the way, how can I restart or reset a tty from another one?
Thanks for any help

[SOLVED] How do I reset MySQL altogether?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 20, 2007
This is another, I messed up my root account so please help me, thread. I have tried the solution, starting mysql_safe with --skip-grants-tables which didn't work for me.
Now since I was able to log in as my normal user and get all my data out, is there a way to just erase everything and start again with a fresh root account?
How to entirely reset apache vs salvaging current instance
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 20, 2013
I was trying to set up SSL with apache on Ubuntu server 12.04.2. I admittedly am not entirely confident in configuring apache and I've never set up SSL before. I'm afraid that now that I've tinkered with it so much and I'm still getting no where that improper configs in who knows what directory could be playing a key factor. So, question... How do I entirely from ground up reset apache so it's like it was with a fresh install? Or... Is that crazy talk... And maybe I'm closer than I think and possibly over complicating it? Just curious on what the experts think... Thanks!
