Chelsea Fieler September 19, 2021 by under VPS Hosting 0 Comments

SSL/TLS certificates are an essential security detail of any trusted website and a crucial business requirement for eCommerce websites that expect to generate revenue via a trusted website platform.

The basic function of an SSL certificate is to provide secured communications between the web server and the website user. The SSL certificate gives you the padlock at the top of the browser. It guarantees that the data being served is the data intended by the provider.

However, if you look closer, you will see that there is more to SSL certificates than their surface-level function.

How to: Managing System Logs with Journalctl

Chelsea Fieler July 7, 2015 by under VPS Hosting 0 Comments

Introduction

In some of the newer Linux distributions, “init.d” or “rsyslogd” has been replaced by a program called JournalCTL.  Previously, logs were typically found in a particular location for each separate log file, rather than being easy to locate, manage, and manipulate.  Systemd made these log files easier to access by centralizing them, logging all kernel and user processes in one “journal.”  Journalctl is the newest version of this, which makes it even easier to manage these files.

In this guide, we will explain the basics of journalctl as well as a brief overview of suggested uses for the program.

Prerequisites

Must have a Linux distribution with journalctl as the system log management program, for example, CentOS 7.  If you do not have a server, consider a super fast SSD virtual private server from Atlantic.Net.
