Fix: browser downloads PHP file instead of running it (Debian Squeeze)

Posted 01-31-2012 at 02:39 AM by catkin

This problem took nearly a day to solve so here's the solution.

The problem symptom was with nagios3. After browsing http://<server>/nagios3 and logging on, Firefox opened a download dialog with said "You have chosen to open <blank line> which is a: application/x-httpd-php".

Looking for nagios-specific solutions was not fruitful. It was only when I searched for solutions to the browser downloading PHP files instead of running them I found solutions...

VBS for cwrsync - RSYNC_PASSWORD gotcha

Posted 12-23-2011 at 12:19 AM by catkin
Updated 12-23-2011 at 12:20 AM by catkin (Added comment moderation and email notification)

When running cwrsync as SYSTEM it difficult to satisfy rsync's requirement that the password file must be owned by root and readable only by root.

One solution is to set the RSYNC_PASSWORD environment variable.

When using Visual Basic Script to automate the cwrsync run, there's a "gotcha" -- RSYNC_PASSWORD must be a SYSTEM environment variable, not a USER environment variable.

Sample code:
Code:
objWshShell.Environment("SYSTEM").Item("RSYNC_PASSWORD")
