Need a quick way to generate a PHP backdoor for a compromised server you want to come back to later, then weevely is your application. I was pleasantly surprised when I started playing around with weevely in more detail as it provides a ton of built in functionality and does a lot more than I initially though that weevely did. The weevely application is built using Python and its current version on Backtrack 5 R3 is weevely v0.7. The weevley.py Python script is located in the /pentest/backdoors/web/weevely directory and some of its uses are described in more detail below.
When setting up a BIG-IP instance as a VM or virtual machine there were various settings that I wanted to become more familiar with and make sure I understood. F5 typically has really great documentation but some of it can be hard to locate and filtering through pages and pages of information to find a small amount of information can be a pain. I will be writing numerous articles related to specific F5 BIG-IP settings even though that same information may easily be available from the F5 support site so people searching Google can hopefully find it much quicker. Below I describe the four Resource Provisioning Settings available for the F5 BIG-IP modules.
Invalid command ‘FastCGIExternalServer’, perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
I got the error below when attempting to configure a Django project to be served by FastCGI via Apache for the first time. I have configured FastCGI but it had been awhile and the server I was working with had ISPConfig installed on it and what I thought to be mod_fastcgi. Below I explain the error, my mix up, and how to resolve on a Linux server.
After modify some Perl modules with CPAN I started getting the below errors in the Apache error_log.

As you add services, contacts, contact groups, commands, and devices to Nagios the bulk editing begins to become very tedious. Monarch is a great tool to manage Nagios configuration(.cfg) files. To install Monarch follow the instructions provided in the README.txt that comes with the product. Below I provide instructions to assist in that installation along with some tips and tricks that I learned along the way.
**UPDATE** I realized when reading back through this article that I had not included a download link for Monarch so click here to download Monarch to manage your Nagios configuration files.
