PSQL

Magic words:

psql -U postgres

Some interesting flags (to see all, use -h):

  • -E: will describe the underlaying queries of the \ commands (cool for learning!)
  • -l: psql will list all databases and then exit (useful if the user you connect with doesn't has a default database, like at AWS RDS)

How to setup Let's Encrypt for Nginx on Ubuntu 16.04 (including IPv6, HTTP/2 and A+ SLL rating)

There are two main modes to run the Let's Encrypt client (called Certbot):

  • Standalone: replaces the webserver to respond to ACME challenges
  • Webroot: needs your webserver to serve challenges from a known folder.

Webroot is better because it doesn't need to replace Nginx (to bind to port 80).

In the following, we're setting up mydomain.com. HTML is served from /var/www/mydomain, and challenges are served from /var/www/letsencrypt.

How to make a script to run in your terminal

  • Locate the path to the interpreter for the language you are writing in with the which command.

      which node
      which python
      which bash

It also will be available as a gist on Github for everyone to edit and add to.
