A step by step tutorial on how to automatically start ssh server on boot on the Windows Subsystem for Linux

How to automatically start ssh server on boot on Windows Subsystem for Linux

Microsoft partnered with Canonical to create Bash on Ubuntu on Windows, running through a technology called the Windows Subsystem for Linux. Below are instructions on how to set up the ssh server to run automatically at boot.

  1. Edit the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file by running the command sudo vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config and do the following
    1. Change Port to 2222 (or any other port above 1000)
    2. Change PasswordAuthentication to yes. This can be changed back to no if ssh keys are setup.
  2. Restart the ssh server:
    • sudo service ssh --full-restart
  3. With this setup, the ssh server must be turned on every time you run Bash on Ubuntu on Windows, as by default it is off. Use this command to turn it on:

Pimping Up Your PowerShell & Cmder with Posh-Git, Oh-My-Posh, & Powerline Fonts

Backstory (TLDR)

I work as a full-stack developer at work. We are a Windows & Azure shop, so we are using Windows as our development platform, hence this customization.

For my console needs, I am using Cmder which is based on ConEmu with PowerShell as my shell of choice.

Yes, yes, I know nowadays you can use the Linux subsystem on Windows 10 which allow you to run Ubuntu on Windows. If you are looking for customization of the Ubuntu bash shell, check out this article by Scott Hanselman.

Extended ExpressionEngine .htaccess/apache conf

ExpressionEngine .htaccess/Apache conf

Please use these at your own risk. I cannot be responsible for having no idea what I am doing and breaking your server.

This is a collection of Apache configuration settings that I use in my ExpressionEngine projects. Since I have always been a big fan of the HTML5 Boilerplate I took inspiration from their .htaccess file and tweaked my configuration with other settings I have used over the years.

This gist contains:

  • _EXTENDED.htaccess This is a general .htaccess file I rename and edit as needed for each site. Note: When I host a site on my prad/stage/dev servers I move most or all of these rules into the vhost.conf file
  • _SAMPLE.httpd.conf I use Ubuntu on my development, staging, and production servers so this is specific to Apache 2 on my setup. Essentially this file extends the apache2.conf (in my setup).
