If you have ClientExec installed in a sub-directory say /clientexec and want to require HTTPS only for ClientExec the easiest way to accomplish this is by putting a .htaccess file inside of the sub directory itself. There are numerous solutions to this posted as CE Knowledge Base Articles and within the CE forums but many of them did not work for me so I wanted to post the solution that worked on setup using CentOS as the operating system and using Apache/PHP/MySQL on that platform.
Earlier when upgrading a WordPress site that is running on a CentOS Linux server I needed to quickly backup the entire site to then perform an upgrade of the core WordPress installation. There are multiple directories located beneath the primary site folder that I didn’t need to backup including some caching directories as well as a database backup directory since all of those directories are not required to restore the site in case of an issue during the WP upgrade. Use the information below to create a tar archive while excluding multiple sub directories.
The other day I was attempting to use the Linux ftp command line application to obtain all of the files, sub directories, and files within the sub directories from an FTP site. The first issue I ran into was the issue of being prompted to confirm each and every file that is downloaded. Below I describe how to accomplish turning off the prompt and just to note I ended up using “wget” to download all of the files, sub directories, and files within the sub directories via FTP on the remote server.
