Yesterday I was surprised when discovered that,... ehm, well... I'm such a newbie in this... that most routers using MIPS not ARM CPU as I thought before
Since that, I've also tried to look at MIPS in QEMU. There is even less information about this, though debian to help I was surprised I've missed it last time when doing experiments with qemu-system-arm, but now it's very helpful with qemu-system-mips.

chroot PHP for use with nginx

nginx 'autoindex' module bug: patch committed

Posted 02-07-2010 at 06:17 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])
Tags bug, nginx, patch

Two or three days ago I was cleaning up my webserver hosts, and adding some stuff.
Occasionally, I've created a file with name containing '?'(question sign) in it. This directory had autoindex enabled, served by nginx.
I've tried to view the directory listing in my browser(just to see how it is shown) and found a bug: autoindex module wasn't URL-encoding the question sign. So it resulted in request to /somedir/filename instead of /somedir/filename%3f as it should have been.
