Process for cleaning word content

  1. Convert entities to characters excluding tags
  2. Strip trailing spaces.
  3. Find/Replace "\.\ +" with ". " to remove stupid period and double spaces.
  4. Find/Replace "\n{3,}" with "\n\n" to remove places with multiple linebreaks, eg more than one.
  5. Find/Replace "^&#?[A-Za-z0-9]+;\s" with "- " to make bullets from entities.

Sensible File Permissions

For Folders:

find ./ -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;

For Files:

find ./ -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

Both at Once:

find ./ -type d -exec chmod -v 755 {} \; && find ./ -type f -exec chmod -v 644 {} \;

##� Process for Purchasing and Setting up an SSL on Site5

  1. Generate the CSR (ref)
    1. SSH into server and generate an RSA private key
      openssl genrsa -out domainname.key 2048
    2. Create CSR with following command
      req -new -key domainname.key -out domainname.csr

      openssl req -noout -text -in domainname.csr
    5. Save a copy of your CSR. The CSR will be needed during the online order process.
  2. Purchase the SSL using the CSR
    You will need to coordinate the ability to send an email to an address at the domain that you are setting the ssl up for. To approve the SSL setup
  3. Login to site5 backstage
