Prevent SSL redirect loop using WordPress and HAProxy

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , , — admin @ 11:21 am

I do have a haproxy that is serving the ssl frontend and the apache is on 80 port.  But the wordpress see the 80 port and is not forcing to use the ssl as links for css/js

So to force wordpress to generate ssl internal links you need to add this into wp-config.php

define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);
define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true);
if ($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO'] == 'https')

Offcourse on the haproxy you need to have

reqadd X-Forwarded-Proto:\ https

[3765] 30 Jan 11:31:10 # Can’t save in background: fork: Cannot allocate memory

To fix this redis error you need to

echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/overcommit_memory sysctl vm.overcommit_memory=1

delete large directory containing thousands of files

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , , , , — admin @ 11:22 am

Well if you try to remove a directory with multiple files rm will take a long time also some load on that server .

One solution is to rsync a empty directory .

mkdir empty_dir
rsync -a –delete empty_dir/ yourdirectory/

Also a perl can be made but the rsync is easy for me to remeber .

Some more information about this you can find here

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’;

change root password for mysql 5.7 fresh installed

Filed under: Linux — Tags: , , — admin @ 11:35 am

In order to find out actual password you need to grep log file

grep password /var/log/mysqld.log

This will provide you with root password .

After login on your mysql server with

mysql -u root -p

Then you must change root password with

ALTER USER ‘root’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘newpassword’;
