I’ve updated to phpMyAdmin4.6.6. After that, the new version gave me “OpenSSL error: error:0607A082:digital envelope routines:EVP_CIPHER_CTX_set_key_length:invalid key length” at HOME when I logged in.
This is maybe because of this 👉 $cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘ssl_verify’].
The page says “Disabling the certificate verification defeats purpose of using SSL. This will make the connection vulnerable to man in the middle attacks.”, but my SQL server and phpMyAdmin don’t accept accesses from outside of NAT router and the user is only me. So, as my temporal workaround, I added the next line to my config.inc.php.
Actually, I failed once. My Web Browser status bar told ‘done’, but the progressing page showed only two lines. Besides, the update marker didn’t have gone. So I tried again and had ‘Another update is currently in progress’.
From ActivePerl-184.108.40.2061 to ActivePerl-220.127.116.110.
Last time I installed ActivePerl-18.104.22.1681-MSWin32-x86-64int-299574.msi. But now they doesn’t provide an msi file. Then I tried to install ActivePerl-22.214.171.1240-MSWin32-x86-64int-300558.exe, but it gave me an error like the below.
Error 1723. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action CheckInstallDir, entry: CheckInstallDirNoBox, library: C:\Users\UserID\AppData\Local\Temp\MSIXXXX.tmp
Being too busy with writing HTTP/2, I’ll also write about it, which is I moved to MariaDB 10.1.8. Not to update it. Besides, I found PHP5.6.15, phpMyAdmin4.5.1 and ActivePerl-126.96.36.1992 yesterday, so I took care of them all. Continue reading “Memorandum #13.”
They released phpMyAdmin 188.8.131.52 on September 23, 184.108.40.206 on September 24 and 220.127.116.11 on September 25. What new releases in sequence! Ha-ha!! Here is the ChangeLogs. The 18.104.22.168 has a tons of improvements by RFE(Request for enhancement) or so. The 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 are bugfix versions. Continue reading “phpMyAdmin 4.5.0 is released.”
They released phpMyAdmin 4.3.0 on December 5 and 4.3.1 on December 8. So I updated to 4.3.1 from 188.8.131.52 yesterday. Here is the ChangeLogs. The 4.3.0 has a tons of improvements by RFE(Request for enhancement). The 4.3.1 is a bugfix version.
By the way, when I compared the new config.sample.inc.php with my old one(=Ver.4.2.x), I found a line was lost and a line was added.
At /* Storage database and tables */ area
The lost line.
// $cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘designer_coords’] = ‘pma__designer_coords’;
The added line.
// $cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘central_columns’] = ‘pma__central_columns’;
So, when I logged on the new phphmyadmin as root at the first time, I got “The phpMyAdmin configuration storage is not completely configured, some extended features have been deactivated. Find out why. Or alternately go to ‘Operations’ tab of any database to set up it there”.
By clicking ‘Find out why’, I got the alerts like the right image.
I had instructions, too.
Quick steps to setup advanced features:
Create the needed tables with the ./examples/create_tables.sql.
Create a pma user and give access to these tables.
Enable advanced features in configuration file (config.inc.php), for example by starting
Re-login to phpMyAdmin to load the updated configuration file.
I did the followings.
Log on the new version with the old config.inc.php as root.
Add the ALTER privilege to the controluser(Default : pma) on the database phpmyadmin.
Import the new create_tables.sql. If you change the database name(Default : phpmyadmin) and the controluser name(Default : pma), you need to customize the sql file before import. See “Configuration storage“.
Edit the old config.inc.php.
Delete the line.
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘designer_coords’] = ‘pma__designer_coords’;
Add the line.
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘central_columns’] = ‘pma__central_columns’;
Yesterday, they announced Hayabusa 2 Launch rescheduled again. The new schedule for it is at 13:22:04 on December 3(JST). I hope good weather which makes third time lucky aha.
I’ll create a LAMP server on CentOS7 with SELinux enforcing in VPS.
But before this, I did the three things.
$ sudo vi /etc/pam.d/su
Then, uncomment the next line. #auth required pam_wheel.so use_uid –>> auth required pam_wheel.so use_uid
Now the OS permits for only the users in Wheel Group can become root by ‘su’ command.
$ sudo vi /etc/aliases
Then, uncomment the last line of the file and change the user name. #root: marc –>> root: centos
$ sudo newaliases
By this, the user centos can get root’s mail.
Check up on the time zone.
$ sudo timedatectl status
Everything is OK.
$ sudo systemctl status chronyd.service
I had “System clock wrong by 1.088336 seconds, adjustment started” in the result, so I edited /etc/chrony.conf.
$ sudo vi /etc/chrony.conf
In the file I found “# Use public servers from the pool.ntp.org project.”, and I went to pool.ntp.org. I added the lines with ‘+’ at their head and deleted ‘-’s by the instructions.
+server 0.pool.ntp.org iburst
+server 1.pool.ntp.org iburst
+server 2.pool.ntp.org iburst
+server 3.pool.ntp.org iburst
–server 0.centos.pool.ntp.org iburst
–server 1.centos.pool.ntp.org iburst
–server 2.centos.pool.ntp.org iburst
–server 3.centos.pool.ntp.org iburst
Then, restart the service and check again.
$ sudo systemctl restart chronyd.service
$ sudo systemctl status chronyd.service
Now everything is OK.
Note) The location of exstra.conf files: /etc/httpd/conf.d
The extra conf files by default: autoindex.conf, userdir.conf, welcome.conf
Note2) The location of module.conf files: /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/
Note3) I do not rotate log files but the Apache Httpd seems to be able to make it automatically (See /var/log/httpd/ after more than one-day server running). From when can it do this?? Or is this CentOS7’s own feature?
Usually ~userid has the permission 700, but it needs 701 for httpd accessibility. This information on the userdir.conf.
$ chmod 701 centos
I set the DocumentRoot to an user’s home directory, so I need to tell it to SELinux and to allow httpd to access User Home Directory. This information is on httpd_selinux(8). However, when I tried to read it, CentOS7 said it’s empty, oops!!
See online httpd_selinux(8).
$ sudo setsebool -P httpd_enable_homedirs on
$ sudo systemctl start httpd.service
I had the error message “Job for httpd.service failed. See ‘systemctl status httpd.service’ and ‘journalctl -xn’ for details.” when I first started httpd.service. Because I forgot to create ‘www’ and ‘html’ directories. So I made them as the user centos.
[centos@localhost ~]$ mkdir www
[centos@localhost ~]$ cd www
[centos@localhost www]$ mkdir html
Check the directories context.
$ ls -Z
drwxrwxr-x. test test unconfined_u:object_r:httpd_user_content_t:s0 www
$ ls -Z
drwxrwxr-x. test test unconfined_u:object_r:httpd_user_content_t:s0 html
$ sudo systemctl start httpd.service again.
$ sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=http
$ sudo firewall-cmd --reload
$ sudo systemctl enable httpd.service
Note4) Each Well-Known-Port seems to be set by default. So you don’t need firewall-cmd command for port 80.
Access http://VPS_DomainName/. You can see a page like the right image.
