httpd with multiple ssl and password for every key automatically

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , , — admin @ 1:19 pm

Well to use this we must use the SSLPassPhraseDialog functionality of httpd Рapache .

Basically into ssl.conf we put this line or modify the existing one into

SSLPassPhraseDialog exec:/path/script

Where script is read/execute only by root.

And the script is


$server = $ARGV[0];
#print $server;
if ($server eq ‘’ || $server eq ‘’ ) {
print ‘password one’;
} elsif ($server eq ‘’) {
print ‘Password two’;

how to disable gzip for specific file

Filed under: Linux,Php — Tags: , , , , , , — admin @ 1:33 pm

The short answer is

RewriteRule ^dashboard/index - [E=no-gzip:1]
SetEnvIf REDIRECT_no-gzip 1 no-gzip

Some explination of that solution

The – means NOOP, E means set variable, 1 is the value. After redirects, the variables are renamed and prepended with REDIRECT_.

This work for php FPM

If you have a mod dso you can use also this

apache_setenv('no-gzip', '1');

How to enable Core Dumps in CentOS

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , — admin @ 12:17 pm

To enable core dumps for all daemon, please follow these steps:
Edit the /etc/profile. At line 26 of the file, replace this line:
ulimit -S -c 0 > /dev/null 2>&1

with this line:
ulimit -c unlimited >/dev/null 2>&1

Replace this line (around line 138 ) in /etc/init.d/functions
ulimit -S -c 0 >/dev/null 2>&1

with this:
ulimit -S -c ${DAEMON_COREFILE_LIMIT:-0} >/dev/null 2>&1

Enable core-dumping globally by editing the /etc/sysconfig/init file and adding the line:

Enable it for specific daemons by adding this line in the /etc/sysconfig/$daemon:

Optionally, enable core dump for SUID programs:
echo 2 > /proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable

mkdir /tmp/core
chmod 777 /tmp/core

Edit the /etc/sysctl.conf and add the following:

fs.suid_dumpable = 2
kernel.core_uses_pid = 1
kernel.core_pattern = /tmp/core
Then reload the settings in /etc/sysctl.conf:
sysctl -p

Unique visitors from apache log file

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , — admin @ 11:32 am

Well if you ever want to find out from apache log how many unique visitors you have here is one command

cat /usr/local/apache/domlogs/domain.log |awk '{print $1}' | sort | uniq | wc -l

If you want to find out for a date
cat /usr/local/apache/domlogs/domain.log | grep "\[05/Sep/2010" |awk '{print $1}' | sort | uniq | wc -l

Unique referrers
cat /usr/local/apache/domlogs/domain.log | awk '{print $11};' | awk -F / '{print $3}' | sort | uniq

Number of hits
cat /usr/local/apache/domlogs/domain.log | wc -l

apache child pid exit signal Segmentation fault

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , , , , , — admin @ 8:26 pm

Well today I face a strange problem. My apache start throw some segmentation fault into error log. So how to find out what is the problem ?

Well first of all we have to enable the coredump for apache, so in orde to do this we can add this line at the start of httpd.conf
CoreDumpDirectory /path
( Some put the path to /tmp directory but please be aware that for me core have 2.2G , so if you have a small /tmp partition you can put it in other place , but it have to be into a directory with same user/group as apache run ) .

We restart the apache and wait to see a segmentation fault again into error_log, and we will see that he say something about path also
For example:
[notice] child pid 4959 exit signal Segmentation fault (11), possible coredump in /var/www/html

If don’t say anything about path then something is not ok, most probably you have to check properties for path.

After this we find out where is located apache , so for this a
which httpd

Should be ok .
After this we have to run
gdb httpd_path core_path
gdb /usr/sbin/httpd /var/www/html/core

We will see something like this

Loaded symbols for /lib64/
Reading symbols from /usr/lib64/php/modules/ debugging symbols found)...done.
Loaded symbols for /usr/lib64/php/modules/
Reading symbols from /usr/lib64/gconv/ debugging symbols found)...done.
Loaded symbols for /usr/lib64/gconv/
Core was generated by `/usr/sbin/httpd'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
#0 0x00007f278f5a5c29 in zend_hash_index_find () from /etc/httpd/modules/
Missing separate debuginfos, use: debuginfo-install httpd-2.2.15-30.el6.centos.x86_64

Ok now we run
(gdb) where
And now is the magic to see what is causing the problem.

For me was

#24 0x00007f279adea900 in main ()

To quit from gdb we have to type quit .

For me the problem was the apc, I have increased the memory_limit, and the problem is fixed .
