What was I doing when it occurred:
I have configured *.info to be treated as an INI file. I have a file named filename.info open for editing.
I don't know when the exception error message first appeared, but as soon as I noticed it I sent this debug information. As a result, I'm not sure what I was doing when the exception happened.

Kill the processes and back-up accounts before removing
View gist:6118414

Remove Linux user accounts

I killed the processes and backed-up old accounts on the Peregrine UAT server 10.3.28.44. You can find tarballs for the home folders of all removed accounts on Peregrine UAT at:

10.3.28.44:/root/bak/deleted/users

To remove accounts safely I did the following:

  1. Lock the account.

Windows processes listening on a port

These examples assume you are using Windows 7 and have Cygwin installed with the awk package.

This single command will identify the process listening on port "2222" by feeding netstat output into tasklist using gawk.

netstat -aon | gawk ' $2~/:2222/ { system("tasklist /svc /FI \"PID eq " $5 "\"") } '

Resize a Hard Disk for a Virtual Machine

Our Virtual Machines are provisioned using Vagrant from a Linux base box to run using VirutalBox. If the Hard Disk space runs out and you cannot remove files to free-up space, you can resize the Hard Disk using some VirtualBox and Linux commands.

Some assumptions

The following steps assume you've got a set-up like mine, where:

How to persist file system permissions for web applications.
View persist-file-perms.md

Persist Filesystem Permissions

The writable files and folders for web applications often require specific user, group and permission masks to persist, even when new files and sub-folders are added by users or the application itself.

For example, permissions might need to be:

File mode

u:rw,g:rw
You can’t perform that action at this time.
