The other day, I had to use RDP to connect to a customer's Windows Server 2012.
I use a Linux Workstation, so normally, I use "rdesktop" to get things done.
But, this time, when I did rdesktop 95.x.x.x I got the following error.
[email protected] ~ # rdesktop 95.xx.xx.xx
Autoselected keyboard map en-us
Failed to connect, CredSSP required by server.
I tried a quick google search and the results suggested me to uncheck "Allow

of a sudden ( it was after a reboot ), Roundcube stopped working. No matter what
you do, this is the error you get
> Connection to storage server failed
Not very helpful, I know. This is a generic error, there could be a 100 reason
why it happens. But, if this happened all of a sudden, then it must be easy to

I've been using Linux Mint 17.3 for some time, and then Ubuntu 16.04 was
released. I have this problem, you know,
like, if there is any distro release, I have to install it and use it. Be it
Linux Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora, or whatever.
So I installed Ubuntu 16.04. It was nice, for a while, then came quite a lot of
bugs ( It's an LTS release for God's sake ).
So I ditched Ubuntu and decided to go back to Fedora 23 KDE. And I did.
Fedora is awesome. I mean, so many people underestimate FedSome times it happens. You were trying to install something and Yum gets stuck.
No error messages,
it's just stuck. After you do several Ctrl+C, you're back in the shell. But, yum
is still not working
as it should. There could be several reasons why it happens, and the fixes are

Part 1 : Setting up Nginx + PHP-FPM + WordPress
Alright. So now we have our WordPress site up and running. But things aren't
running as smooth as you'd wished. If you did a load test right now, you will
probably get similar results as if you had Apache serving the pages. The reason
is that each time a page is requested, the php-fpm process has to uNginx is fast. How fast? It's crazy fast, if you configure it properly. In this
post, I will help you guys to set up a WordPress site powered by Nginx that can
server 1000s of users at the same time ( Oh, I'm not even close to exaggerating,
You'll see! )
What if I tell you that you can serve 3000 users per second ( or 250,000,000 -
250 Million clients per day ) a WordPress site, without crashing the server,
what would you say? Sure, you can, if you have a huge server powering your site.
Hold thIf you're a beginner in Linux, chances are you've come across this question
yourself. What exactly is a hard link? And how the heck does it differ from a
soft link ( symbolic link or symlink ). Sometimes even experienced Linux Admins
have this question.
Most of us know what a symlink is but gets really confused when we hear about
"hard link". It's not that hard though, let me explain it for you.
Before we get into knowing the difference between soft link and hard link, we
have a few basic thinThe other day I was just [ seriously, for no apparent reason 😀 ] going through
the exim logs in my server and this error caught my eye.

Apparently, IPv6 wasn't configured properly in the server and this was causing
issues when trying to communicate with google's IPv6 addresses. There are two
ways you can fix this issue. The easy way and the correct way. The correct way
would be to configure IPv6 properly ( obviously ). As Last week, I bought an Acer Laptop which had Linpus Linux installed in it. The
reason why I went for acer instead of HP was that I intend to use Linux Mint as
my primary operating systems and HP systems are notorious when it comes to Linux
and wifi drivers.
But, in my new laptop, I have installed Linux Mint 17.3 and I was shocked to see
that the WiFi is not working. I was really frustrated. But, fortunately, later
that day I found out that the WiFi card used in the Laptop is a fairly new one
anIf you wanted to create a web site or blog and you are not in a position to
spend any penny on it, well, there are a couple of web hosts out there who
provides web hosting for free. But let me tell you one thing, if you are serious
about your web site, don't even think about a free hosting as there are
shortcomings, a lot of them. Even then, if you just want to do some experimental
websites or you want to learn the web hosting and stuff, you're better off with
some free hosts.

the transport mechanism is "HTTP". WordPress provides an XMLRPC interface to
your WordPress installation so that you can do all kind of stuff like, "Create a
post", "edit a post" etc, remotely. Basically, you can do pretty much everything
through the XML-RPC interface. Okay, that sounds cool. What is the problem?
