Steps to configure SSL for Apache HTTPD server on Windows: In Apache2.2/conf/httpd.conf , load mod_ssl and include httpd-ssl.conf : LoadModule ssl_module modules/mod_ssl.so ... In Apache2.2/conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf , make sure the paths for the cert files point to the cert and key you want to use: # Server Certificate: # Point SSLCertificat... Start up Apache. If it fails, use the command line to see what the error is. There won't be any log in error.log if there are errors in the conf files: C:\Program Files (x86)\Apache Software Foundation\... I corrected the previous error by using the alternative line for SSLSessionCache : # Inter-Process Session Cache: # Configure ...

More like assign a second ip address to the same nic, instead of a virtual nic. Multiple IP addresses can be assigned to the same NIC, but all IP addresses must be on the same subnet - otherwise some IP addresses will not be accessible. From command line, assign IP address 192.168.0.2 to alias eth0:0 : sudo ifconfig eth0:0 192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.2... But IP addresses added this way are not persistent. They are lost whent he OS is restarted. To make the additions persistent: For Fedora: $ su - # cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ ... The contents of ifcfg-eth0:0 should look like this: DEVICE=eth0:0 IPADDR=192.168.0.2 NETMASK=255... Restart network: # service network restart For Ubuntu: $ sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces Append this to the file: auto eth0:0 iface eth0:0 inet static name Et......

When you run automated Android tests with Eclipse or from the command line, you get text output, which isn't good for reporting purposes. If you run a large set of test cases with automated build, the text report isn't very helpful. Fortunately, Android CTS generates test reports in XML with accompanying XSL to make it look nice in a browser. To run your own tests with Android CTS: Download Android CTS Make a new directory MyRepository under android-cts , alongside the existing repository directory. Copy host_config.xml from repository to MyRepository Create directory plans under MyRepository , add a test plan ( MyTests.xml ): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <TestPla... Create directory testcases under MyRepository . Copy TestDeviceSetup.apk from repository/testcases to MyRepository/testcases Under MyRepository/testcases , create a test...

By Android documentation , odex files are "Optimized DEX" files, which can be created in at least three different ways: The VM does it "just in time". The output goes into a special dalvik-cache directory. This works on the desktop and engineering-only device builds where the permissions on the dalvik-cache directory are not restricted. On production devices, this is not allowed. The system installer does it when an application is first added. It has the privileges required to write to dalvik-cache . The build system does it ahead of time. The relevant jar / apk files are present, but the classes.dex is stripped out. The optimized DEX is stored next to the original zip archive, not in dalvik-cache , and is part of the system...

grep is a versatile command with many variations (grep, egrep, fgrep, then various implementations). It uses a regula expression (regex) pattern to filter input. But then there are basic and extended flavors of regex - leading to even more confusion. And, beware that there are lots of bad examples of regex in the wild... There are two critical questions to ask when you use grep: which grep implementation are you using? what is the flavor of the regex? Here are some examples for gnu grep v2.7: # Find all numbers (no decimal point), basic regex... Use the -o flag to show only the matching part instead of the whole matching line: grep -o -E '\b[0-9]{2}\b' The good thing about the gnu grep is that it...

You can use the ntfsresize utility on Linux to shrink or expand an NTFS partition (boot, for example, with the DRBL live cd). To shrink an NTFS partition: shrink NTFS (the file system) with ntfsresize. re-create a smaller partition to hold the shrinked file system with FDisk. To expand an NTFS partition: Recreate a partition that's bigger than the previous one. expand NTFS to the full size of the new partition. The following are from excerpts from ntfsresize FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) : ntfsresize help: [tinker:root]:(~)# ntfsresize -h ntfsresize v1.... ntfsresize example session: [tinker:root]:(~)# ntfsresize -s11000M /dev/hd... Fdisk example session: [tinker:root]:(~)# fdisk /dev/hdc ...

The output from cat /proc/meminfo looks like this (enter the shell with abd shell ): # cat /proc/meminfo MemTotal: 94096 kB... To quote hackbod from stackoverflow : Finally there is the command "adb shell cat /proc/meminfo" that gives a summary of the overall memory usage of the system. There is a lot of data here, only the first few numbers worth discussing (and the remaining ones understood by few people, and my questions of those few people about them often resulting in conflicting explanations). These are the meanings of the first five rows: Term Meaning MemTotal The total amount of memory available to the kernel and user space (often less than the actual physical RAM of the device, since some of that RAM is needed...

cURL is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax. The main purpose and use for cURL is to automate unattended file transfers or sequences of operations. It's really easy to see HTTP headers with curl: C:\>curl --head http://www.google.com HTTP/1.0 ... or, headers and page together (dump headers to stdout): $ curl --dump-header - http://www.google.com HTTP/... Download openssl from openssl.org: curl http://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-0.9.6m.... C:\>curl --help Usage: curl [options...] <url> ...

The caret ^ is DOS command line escape character. Example 1: echo < and > as is, not interpreting them as input/output redirect. @rem sign an XML file. Requires Java class utils.x... Example 2: treat & literally, not as the special character to combine two commands. @rem search "dos command line" in Google. curl ... Add switch -A "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.1) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/2.0.0.1" to make curl look like Firefox.

You are editing part of a file and you did a text search which carried you to a different location. But now you want to go back to your original location: use the `` command. The following came from the Vim manual: When you make a jump to a position with the "G" command, Vim remembers the position from before this jump. This position is called a mark. To go back where you came from, use this command: `` This ` is a backtick or open single-quote character. If you use the same command a second time you will jump back again. That's because the ` command is a jump itself, and the position from before this jump is remembered.
