This article walks you through the process of installing PostgreSQL, creating a user, backing up a database and restoring a database. In this tutorial, we’re using Ubuntu, but the commands are the same for everything except the installation. Install PostgreSQL on Ubuntu: apt install postgresql postgresql-contrib systemctl start postgresql ufwRead more
This article holds my notes from when I recently tested the Redhat Ansible Automation Platform. I’ve included answers to the questions I had at the start and during my effort to install the system. You need to install this on a Redhat Enterprise Linux v8.4 server, or newer. You don’tRead more
Long-time Linux system administrators typically use the “ifconfig” command. Perhaps out of habbit, or because it works on other OS’s (similar to ipconfig on Windows). But we should be using the “ip” command in-place of “ifconfig”. The “net-tools” package needs to be installed if you want the “ifconfig” command, andRead more
I’ve resized plenty of EC2 disks in my time, but the most recent one was a little different. Most of the disks I resize are on Ubuntu or CentOS, but the most recent one was a Redhat disk. Call me crazy but it’s strangely different. The disks layout looks likeRead more

But if you’re using Windows, the installation process will differ. yum install nodejs npm install mysqlRead more
Sometimes we don’t want the public knowing the versions of Apache and PHP running on our servers. This article shows how to hide that information. We’re using CentOS 7 for this example but the only difference really is the location of the configuration file for the Vhosts. Hide the ApacheRead more
The modules that we use are specific to our needs. But these are the most commonly used from my recent history. This list is super generic and mostly to supplement my poor memory. These methods/modules rely on a previously completed db_nmap scan. So our targets are readily available from theRead more
If you want to create a customised password list for a specific target (client, I hope), this article is for you. It’s basically just a re-write of “https://karimlalji.wordpress.com/2018/04/26/password-guessing-mangle-a-custom-wordlist-with-cewl-and-hashcat/” which I’ll probably forget later so I’m documenting here. We don’t just want a list of passwords, we want a list ofRead more

On CentOS: yum install davfs2 On Ubuntu: apt install davfs2 Mount it: mount -t davfs https://live.sysinternals.com/tools /mnt/sysinternals Now you can access it at: # ls /mnt/sysinternals/ accesschk64.exe diskext.exe pipelist.exe RegDelNull.exe accesschk.exe Diskmon.exe PORTMON.CNTRead more
