date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

Set following value in php.ini file


date.timezone = 'Asia/Kolkata'

It depends on your timezone. Set your timezone in php.ini
You may face this error if this line is commented.

Restart Apache and try again.

ejabberd Error : large number of users are crashing ejabberd

CRASH REPORT Process  with 0 neighbours exited with reason: {process_limit,{max_queue,}} in p1_fsm:terminate/8 line

CRASH REPORT Process <0.645.0> with 0 neighbours exited with reason: {process_limit,{max_queue,2706}} in p1_fsm:terminate/8 line 755

Solution : 1
May be, you have added all your users under one shared roster group. If you remove the group, you will not get the error again.

But if you remove the shared roster group, your users will not be able to see the other users in client like pidgin.
 
If you create multiple shared roster groups, Users of one group will not be able to see users of other group so they can not chat with each other. Bad Idea.

Solution : 2
In your shared roster group, you might have used @all@ parameter to add all users in one group. ejabberd is trying to list all users at once and it is crashing in this process.

You can change @all@ to @online@. Now ejabberd lists all online users only and this is definitely less than total number of users. In this condition ejabberd has less load and chances of crashing is less too.

But you have really a big database and you have 2000-3000 users are online simultaneously, then you should try solution 3.


Solution : 3
Add attribute
max_fsm_queue: 10000
under section port 5222: in the ejabberd.yml config file in following way
listen:
-
    port: 5222
    module: ejabberd_c2s4
    certfile: "/home/ubuntu/ejabberd-16.06/conf/server.pem"
    starttls: true
    resume_timeout: 0
    protocol_options:
      - "no_sslv3"
    max_stanza_size: 65536
    shaper: c2s_shaper
    access: c2s
    max_fsm_queue: 10000
  Restart ejabberd.

You should not get this error again.

ERROR: S3 error: 400 (InvalidRequest): The authorization mechanism you have provided is not supported. Please use AWS4-HMAC-SHA256.

Solution :
Your s3cmd has older version, you need to upgrade it. Download latest one and use the file everywhere.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/s3tools/files/s3cmd/1.6.1/
I faced this problem on 1.1 version of s3cmd, I downloaded latest and got 1.6. After that I did not get the error.


How to use the downloaded folder.
1) Extract the folder and open it.
2) Now run your s3cmd command using this downloaded folder.
 /home/ubuntu/s3cmd-1.6.1/s3cmd ls s3://

/home/ubuntu/s3cmd-1.6.1/s3cmd -c /home/ubuntu/.s3cfg put /tmp/file.sql s3://bucketname


Server reached MaxRequestWorkers setting, consider raising the MaxRequestWorkers setting

There are three modules related to this settings. 
prefork, worker and event

First find which module is activated using

a2query -M

Now change its conf file in mods-available. 

In following case, prefork is enabled, so make changes in mpm_prefork.conf

Open file mpm_prefork.conf and increase the MaxRequestWorkers settings according to your RAM.

MaxRequestWorkers
A simple calculation for MaxRequestWorkers would be: 

(Total Memory – Critical Services Memory) / Size Per Apache process

In this case the server has 3400Mb of memory allocated, 

250Mb used by mySQL and each Apache thread averages about 30Mb. 
MaxRequestWorkers = (3400– 250) / 30
therefore MaxRequestWorkers = 105

Restart Apache. Check here too.

Cannot allocate memory: fork: Unable to fork new process in ubuntu

There are three modules related to this settings. 
prefork, worker and event

First find which module is activated using

a2query -M

Now change its conf file in mods-available. 

In following case, prefork is enabled, so make changes in mpm_prefork.conf

MaxConnectionsPerChild
If MaxConnectionsPerChild is 0, then the process will never expire.
Setting MaxConnectionsPerChild to a non-zero value limits the amount of memory that process can consume by (accidental) memory leakage.

MaxRequestWorkers
A simple calculation for MaxRequestWorkers would be: 

(Total Memory – Critical Services Memory) / Size Per Apache process

In this case the server has 3400Mb of memory allocated, 

250Mb used by mySQL and each Apache thread averages about 30Mb. 
MaxRequestWorkers = (3400– 250) / 30
therefore MaxRequestWorkers = 105

/etc/apache2/mods-available/mpm_prefork.conf
 <ifmodule mpm_prefork_module>   
    StartServers          5
    MinSpareServers          5
    MaxSpareServers         10
    MaxRequestWorkers       100
    MaxConnectionsPerChild  1000
</ifmodule>
Restart Apache.

Not able to change permission or execute files in ubuntu

When your file is in NTFS partition, you are not allowed to change permission or execute file.

You need to add permissions for the partition.

Find UUID of all partitions using
sudo blkid

Open file /etc/fstab
and add following line for each partition which should be auto-mounted with executable file permissions.
UUID=12102C02102CEB83 /media/root ntfs-3g auto,users,exec,permissions 0 0

UUID of the partition can be found using above mentioned command and /media/root is the directory where you want the partition should be mounted

Now partition files have changeable and executable permissions.

XAMPP - wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

If you have added an extension in your php.ini and you are getting this error while restarting XAMPP or running command  /opt/lampp/bin/php -v as well as as extension is not working, it means you are using 64 bit .so file(extension) in 32 bit XAMPP.

You can get this error while installing ioncube loader .so file, mongo.so file or in similar extension.

Download 32 bit version of .so file and put it in right place in xampp directory.
Mention it in php.ini file and Restart xampp .

Your extension should not be failed this time.

Browse files of Android mobile on ubuntu by bluetooth

To browse files of Android phone (memory card), you should have obex installed on your Ubuntu.
sudo apt-get install obexfs obexftp

Now you should have a server on your android phone. Install app "Bluetooth File Transfer" on your Android phone. When you open the app, it starts FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and OPP (object push profile) services on two different ports.

Start Bluetooh of android device and ubuntu and make both discoverable. Now mount your Android device on Ubuntu.
sudo obexfs -b android:device:id /mount/directory
Make sure mounted directory is empty.

To find your android device id, run command 
hcitool scan
Make sure your phone is discoverable and bluetooth is turned on.

Suppose your device id is 00:19:99:4c:68:12 and mounted directory on Ubuntu is /mnt/user.
Run command on ubuntu
sudo obexfs -b 00:19:99:4c:68:12 /mnt/user
Make sure you have started Bluetooth File Transfer app in your phone.

Now you can see all your memory card files in the directory /mnt/user.

I got maximum transfer speed 30 kbps from phone to system or vice versa. The only advantage I found, I need not carry USB cable and my Laptop usb port is not used in this process. Otherwise it is not useful for bigger transfer, sometimes it loses the connection and sometimes it is really annoying.
