.Gitignoring the hardway

To untrack a single file that has already been added/initialized to your repository, i.e., stop tracking the file but not delete it from your system use: git rm –cached filename

To untrack every file that is now in your .gitignore:

First commit any outstanding code changes, and then, run this command:

git rm -r --cached .

This removes any changed files from the index(staging area), then just run:

git add .

Commit it:

git commit -m ".gitignore is now working"

To undo

git rm --cached filename

, use git add filename.


Solve MySQL(MariaDB) Bad Socket

To find all socket files on your system run:

sudo find / -type s

My Mysql server system had the socket open at /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

Once you find where the socket is being opened, add or edit the line to your /etc/my.cnf file with the path to the socket file:


Sometimes the system startup script that launched the command line executable specifies a flag –socket=path. This flag could override the my.cnf location, and that would result in a socket not being found where the my.cnf file indicates it should be. Then when you try to run the mysql command line client, it will read my.cnf to find the socket, but it will not find it since it deviates from where the server created one. So, Unless you care where the socket resides, just changing the my.cnf to match should work. I

If you’re super user in the linux system, based on the above just do this:

kill -9 4969

or sometimes you can do this:

pkill -9 mysqld

After you do this you might want to look for a pid file in /var/run/mysqld/ and delete it

Make sure the permissions on your socket is such that whatever user mysqld is running as can read/write to it. An easy test is to open it up to full read/write and see if it still works:

chmod 777 '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

If that fixes the issue, you can tailor the permissions and ownership of the socket as needed based on your security settings.

Also, the directory the socket resides in has to be reachable by the user running the mysqld process.

Install Pure-FTP , –Purge VSFTP

#Install Pure-FTPd

aptitude -y install pure-ftpd

#run as a daemon

echo "yes" > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/Daemonize

#prohibit Anonymous

echo "yes" > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/NoAnonymous

#enable chroot

echo "yes" > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/ChrootEveryone

#only IPV4

echo "yes" > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/IPV4Only

service pure-ftpd restart

#Restarting ftp server: Running: 
/usr/sbin/pure-ftpd -l pam -E -A -8 UTF-8 -B -O clf:/var/log/pure-ftpd/transfer.log -u 1000 -4 -B

Remove (PURGE!!!) VSFTPD

#remove first:

#Stop: Unknown instance
#and when I used:

ps -a | grep ftp

#I can still see vsftpd was running, That meant the vsftpd was not stopped.
#So I used: 

kill -9 25676

#the stop
service vsftp stop
sudo aptitude remove --purge vsftpd
sudo aptitude install vsftpd

#delete via rm -rf or FTP

Instalar Good Nginx

#Cambiamos a /ETC
cd /etc

#Eliminamos la carpeta default de NGINX
rm -rf nginx

#Clona el Repositorio de nginx-dreams.git de bitbucket
#repositorio + nombre de carpeta
git clone https://[email protected]/dreamsengineering/nginx-dreams.git nginx

#Verificamos que este todo bien
cd /etc/nginx
#Lista de Directorios sobre nginx

#Editar dominio en /etc/nginx/sites-available, Duplicamos
cd sites-available

#Editamos nuestro nuevo archivo a conveniencia de nuestro dominio de elección.

#Hacemos un symbolic link
ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/ /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/

#Creamos Las Carpetas de dominio

mkdir /sites

cd /sites



mkdir public api cdn logs backup

#inicia todos los servicios

Primer Paso es hacer un folder en tu

#Repositorio Nuevo
#Crea tu repositorio en Bitbucket con Create
#Llena los datos

##1 Inicia Git de un repositorio nuevo (recuerda sudo si no tienes privilegios root)
git init

##2 Suma tu Git a la repo de tu Bitbucket
git remote add origin https://[email protected]/dreamsengineering/$TU_USER.git 

##3 Tu Repositorio ya debe de tener algo en el Folder (por lo menos un file), para entonces añadir a la cola de commits (-A es acro de --ALL)
git add -A 

##4 Listo para hacer Commit
git commit "initial commit"

##5 Subimos git al Repositorio Master Remoto
git push -u origin master

#Repositorio en Branch
#El siguiente paso es después del Paso numero #4

##Crea un Branch
git branch NEW_BRANCH

##Cambia al Branch 
git checkout NEW_BRANCH

##Hacer Push para sincronizar tu branch
git push -u origin NEW_BRANCH

– escribe


para desconectar

Hagamos que este Fake se vea real:
#abre to Vagrantfile y quita el comentario: "privatenetwork", ip: ""

vagrant reload

#añade la ip de tu dominio fake desde Preferencias del Sistema o

sudo open /etc/hosts -a "Sublime Text"

para abrir directamente tu /etc/hosts en Sublime Text
#añade las lineas de tu ip a tu sitio
