How to Take Screenshots on the iPhone and Email The Image

Taking screenshots on the iPhone is simple but can be a very useful tool. I use this tool all of the time to describe how things work or describe cool iPhone features to people. The screen captures on the iPhone are saved as 320×480 pixel JPG’s which aren’t super high resolution but it will open in perfect clarity the same size as your iPhone screen.

Internet Explorer 8: Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?

A default installation of Internet Explorer 8 has some security settings that can be annoying at times though technically they are the correct way to have things configured. One that will pop up a lot if the default settings is left untouched the the display of “mixed content” or display a HTTPS URL that has HTTP content mixed into it. Technically when visiting a secure webpage being delivered over SSL there should not be any HTTP items on the page as it leaves the door open for a security breach. The problem is there are a ton of web sites out there that display mixed content.

**NOTE: This setting is the same for the Windows XP 32-Bit and Windows 7 64-Bit versions of Internet Explorer 8.

ISPConfig: Getting 403 Forbidden Errors with Attempting to Login to Admin Pages

I have had a server running ISPConfig 2.x for quite some time and have been wanting to make the transition to ISPConfig 3.x as soon as I had a chance. That chance presented itself earlier this weekend and I am glad to say there were no major issues thanks to the amazing how to from Falco at HowToForge. After the installation and bringing numerous sites back online I had some outside the normal installation steps to complete. These steps included things like installing/configuring SNMP, installing/configure Nagios, etc.

All appeared well when I went to sleep meaning the servers seemed to all check out when was finished and ready to catch some sleep. Anyways when I logged on the following day to check all of the sites all was still functional besides a small DNS configuration error I had made with one sub domain which was not a big deal.

Litespeed: SSL error: error:0906D06C:PEM routines:PEM_read_bio:no start line

Recently when installing a second SSL certificate for a secondary IP address on a Linux server running Litespeed as the web server I received the below error. The error at first made me think that maybe the key file still required a password even though I knew I had generated the key file not requiring a pass phrase. The error below will show up in your error.log file located in /var/lsws/logs/error.log.
