10ft experience for Web Browsing : Distro suggestions
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 9, 2011
I've got a tiny fanless PC with a HDMI out that I would like to configure as a media PC and I'm looking for suggestions on the best lightweight distro to support web browsing for the 10ft experience (i.e. watching on my flat screen in the lounge). Being in the UK the BBC iPlayer and 4OnDemand (through Youtube) are great free services, likewise the online LoveFilm service (kinda like Netflix) is something else I would like to tap into. Media playback I'm not overly concerned with, but this would be a nice extra.
I have come across 'Element' that seemed to be perfect but that Distro is no longer available.
I'm not looking to create a media center as such, i.e. with a capture card and MythTV; just for web browsing (primarily) and maybe playing some games (thinking of the Humble Bundle stuff) but that isn't imperative.
Is there a distro knocking around that can do this or am I best starting from scratch (in which case what is the best starting place)?
Thanks in advance
Bad guys flooding my web server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 21, 2005
I have a little photoblog that I am running from my web server at home. Its using pixelpost software, which is coded in php. There is a page photoblogindex.php?x=xref that shows the top refferals to my site.
There are scripts or worms or something that is continously connecting to my site to move the sites they are advertising up to the top of the list.
I first tried getting rid of the xref page and thought that this would help but when they try to connect to it it just brings up a template page and not a 404 or anything and the bots keep connecting thinking that they are working. This is bogging down my oldtimer of a computer and my internet connection.
I am looking for some advise because I can not figure out what to do. Should I do something with tcp wrappers? Special access rules? Something in apache config? The sites that they are promoting change names all fo the time so blocking certain reffering sites is a constant battle.
addaptrepository always fails with ssl error 12.04

I have what was a clean desktop install of ubuntu 12.04. No matter what repository I try to add add-apt-repository always fails with ssl error - example:
Traceback (most recent call last):

I have tried to reinstall/reconfiger ca-certificates but that does not seem to be the issue so I am lost

Yesterday my site's Rapid SSL certificate expire for that reason I bought new one - Thawte 123 certificate. I installed new SSL with this lines in vhost configuration for my site:
In client's browsers everything is fine, but in apache error log I see many lines like this:

[SOLVED] Apache + SSL returns \x16\x03\x01 error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 25, 2008
I'm trying to extend my 8.04 web server so that it can also use HTTPS; I have a default LAMP install and followed the guide for SSL located at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/fo...c03278cb115738, generating a certificate via the 7.10 method shown.
I then copied my available-sites/default config to available-sites/ssl, modified it so the port was 443 not 80, enabled it and reloaded, but for some reason, Apache restarts just fine, but any attempts to access my webserver with https results in a "ssl_error_rx_record_too_long" error in my browser, and in the Apache error log I get the error "[error] [client 192.168.1.100] Invalid method in request \x16\x03\x01". Accessing the server by ordinary http still works absolutely fine and Apache returns no restart errors or warnings.
I don't know if it's relevant but below is my sites-available/ssl file:
[SOLVED] Ubuntu Apache web server not restarting /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

We have a peculiar problem with our production web server, where I am unable to restart Apache.
Usually, I would just do a /etc/init.d/apache2 restart, and everything would be okay. However, now the restart command is not doing anything whatsoever. Something has got messed up...
It appears that I have multiple versions of start/stop scripts:

Setting up an Apache web server
location: linux.com - date: July 30, 2009
Hello all, I'm new to the community and have a few questions to ask.
Well first off I'll let you know what I'm trying to accomplish. I would like to set up an Apache web server to run run multiple sites off it. I currently have a domain that is being hosted by godaddy.com but I would like to set up a server so I can start learning how to do all the work myself.
I'm wouldn't say I'm a complete beginner with Linux because I've played around with it here and there so I know most of the basics.
I'm wondering what Distro I should go with. If there are any good beginners guides you could recommend. Is it possible to just drop the domain that I'm using now with godaddy and use my current IP? or should I just continue using the current domain I have now?
Another thing in the future I plan on using this same computer to run as a server, is it possible to have it running as a server as well as a web server and if I do that should I set up the server side first, then the web server?
I'll be set
