Earlier when attempting to login to a DD-WRT router at my house I was unable to so I figured when I upgraded the software last night that is must have disabled SSH Management for some reason. I went into the web interface to turn SSH Management on but it was greyed out. Luckily the fix is easy but wanted to note it in an article in case others couldn’t find the location to turn SSH on in DDWRT.
Most people will likely find this on their own but since I couldn’t find a specific restart button within the Nexpose Security Console web interface I figured it would be worth noting in a short article. The below details describe how to restart the Nexpose Security Console via the Nexpose Security Console web interface.
The other day while configuring a Asus RT-N16 wireless router we had installed DD-WRT software on I decided to turn off HTTP access to the web admin interface. After making this change I got pulled away to test something else and never tested it so I was surprised when I attempted to login today and I was unable to login to the DD-WRT web interface using HTTP or HTTPS. Turns out something was not allowing HTTPS to start and since I had disabled HTTP the wireless router was no longer listening on port 80 or port 443. Below is information on how to start Apache after logging into a wireless router running DD-WRT either via SSH or via telnet.
I started some work on a online store today that is using Zen Cart open source e-commerce software to power the store. I love Zen Cart, which initially was branched off of osCommerce, to power online stores and have used Zen Cart or osCommerce to power online stores for going on a decade. The first thing you should always do when beginning work on an already established site is get all of the information about the software(Zen Cart, osCommerce, WordPress, etc.) that runs the web site and the software used to power the site(MySQL, PostgreSQL, Apache, Litespeed, etc.). Zen Cart makes the initial task of obtaining information about the site and some of the server software fairly easy. Use the information below to obtain the Zen Cart version.
I set up Litespeed on a development box a long time ago and forgot what the Litespeed admin password was so I needed to reset it. Luckily there is a handy command line script that will allow you to reset the password with ease. Follow the directions below to reset the Litespeed Web Administration Console username and password.
