Heya!
Hey, I'm trying to make an automated bash program to detect a line in the /etc/hosts file and remove it. What would be the best way?
never mind :P

Got clippied?
There is no best way. You'd probably end up using something like sed or awk tho
 
3:20 AM
@CanadianLuke You do know, MS contributes drivers and patches to linux now too
And its still open source.
Chances are they'll semi-fork it to work better in windows, use it for config management (since MS' config management product will support linux soon), and hopefully contribute $$ to openssh development

Oh look, Office 365 allows inline editing for documents sent in through a mail

Q: "There is no subdomain here." error in creating (one/multi)-level sub-domains

MRS1367Objective: I want to create multilevel sub-domains. For example, I've a domain like "domain.com," and now I want to create some sub-domains for it.

@HackToHell Couldn't outlook do that in like 2007? Cept it was mostly turned off due to 'security' ? (and saving the file would tell you it was in c:\temp\tmp\somedir\letters.profile\blahrughserersaseaefilename.xls)
 
Bob
@JourneymanGeek I use pocket and I still don't want it to be integrated into the browser :S
that's just weird
 
@Bob: I've got my own wallabag install and I quite like it
 
8:44 AM
@djsmiley2k No idea
 
9:00 AM
@Bob: It is. and I'm running my own wallabag instance anyway and it does the same thing

Bob
10:35 AM
@JourneymanGeek I got a hi-tecpoint
it's got a cartridge inside (looks like)
but how do I open it
 
Sure its the refillable one? ;p
Looks like you unscrew the body
 
They're refillable?! :O
I love those pens, they so cheap I normally just buy a new one tho
Cartridge System
Oh, they aren't normally the cartridge ones.
 
Bob
@JourneymanGeek It's not :P
It's the grip version
I can pull the tip and feed out with pliers, though
then it refills like an eyedropper (vpen) :P
 
That's messy tho
heh, the vpen is basically the FP version of the techpoint ;p
 
Bob
@JourneymanGeek the colour of my hands attests to that
I accidentally poured out half the ink :P
 
10:42 AM
;p
This is why I do these things over a filled sink
 
Bob
@JourneymanGeek that's why I keep a bottle of isoprop nearby
my desk is back to its usual colour now
 
filled sink?
Oh, as to not stain the sink itself?
 
yup
and immediate dilute the mess
 
Bob
...I can get blue and green off ebay
no black :(
 
Tempted to see if Popular has em ;p
(bookstore chain famous for their selection of textbooks. And their stationary section isn't half bad)
 
Bob
10:52 AM
@JourneymanGeek if you manage to find some - how much would it cost to ship a couple over here? :P
 
No idea, but prolly not that much
Heh
I miss english weather ;p
(tho not winter. Might have been better if it snowed, but as someone born in the tropics, wildly changing sunrises and sunsets was a shock)
oops
wrong room
 
I love our weather.
 
Bob
11:06 AM
@JourneymanGeek lol
 
11:33 AM
I just saw >> /dev/null. That is a really interesting thing to think about
...unless I'm missing something here
 
Bob
?
 
Like, why would you append to /dev/null?
 
Bob
because reasons?
they don't want to accidentally overwrite null?
who knows?
 
12:31 PM
@Bob echo foo > /dev/null; echo bar >> /dev/null because you wouldn't want to overwrite your foo!

Q: how do I clean up the explorer window to remove category nonsense?

barlopHow do I get it back to a normal layout and get rid of this category nonsense

you're welcome to jump in
 
I have no idea what this category nonsense is, but i'd guess the view menu has what you need.
I can't check as I'm on OSX at work
 
1:34 PM
@slhck's answer sounds sensible
 
Hey @TomWijsman
 
If your question is that long, you need to find yourself another hosting with another panel.
 
Anyone got any amazing tips on managing to be alive iwth a 1yr old?
She's either teething or got a cold atm, so no sleep for me
 
slhk did it. wasn't the view menu.
 
@TomWijsman did you see my question?
 
1:45 PM
was 'group by'.
 
@MRS1367 No, I'm assuming it to be long. Of course I did.
 
@TomWijsman -> you said me ask a question about it
and I tried to offer all what I did
I got some clues
but they didn't help me
it's not for me
 
@MRS1367 now you asked, somebody may answer. and you can always ask elsewhere and ask others
 
it's for a company
 
No, I didn't.
May 31 at 15:16, by Tom Wijsman
Not sure if I will know the answer to it.
 
1:48 PM
and they don't want to change it
 
@djsmiley2k survive a year. Then worry about a rampaging toddler
 
she'll sleep more then haha
she normally sleeps really well, maybe that's why if affects me so much
 
@TomWijsman do u know about Virtual Pointers?
 
@MRS1367 Those are two words made up by the panel developers which could mean anything.
 
1:50 PM
she's slept through from 6 weeks
tho from week 3 to week 4 we were in hospital and that seems to be why
 
adding sub-domains just by DNS Records in my situation, didn't work
 
@MRS1367 You need to tell your company that it is impossible with the panel; or spent the work doing more figuring out, but you're unlikely to find your answer with a long question and neither do I know.
 
@TomWijsman can I say something?
@TomWijsman Thank you for your advice :)
it's weird
 
@MRS1367 It's supposed to work, there is the problem. In my world I would call this panel broken by design.
Similarly...
yesterday, by allquixotic
if it were me, I'd stop using PHP; and if my job required it, I'd find a new job
:D
 
Because when I try to create a one-level sub-domain by DNS records, it doesn't work too
I've said about it to them
and they said it should has a way to do that
I only can create sub-domains just by creating a Pointer!!!
and I don't know what's this!!!
@TomWijsman When I ping my created miltilevel sub-domains by DNS Records
I'll get the correct result
 
1:59 PM
Then it sounds like IIS is the problem.
 
I found this in the Hosting Provider web pages:
> Since creating sub-domain via WSP Control Panel (CP) in the P6 and above host plans causes wasting of your plan resources, each sub-domain is considered as a Hosted Domain. Therefore, you can use Virtual Sub-domains (that is supported by URL Rewrite feature in IIS 7 and later) in your plan for prevent this and also take advantage of the sub-domains.
each sub-domain is considered as a Hosted Domain
you can use Virtual Sub-domains (that is supported by URL Rewrite feature in IIS 7 and later)
 
Yeah, but not necessarily subsubdomains.
It depends again on what "virtual subdomains in your plan" means.
These words are just words, not fully defined specifications.
 
@TomWijsman so, when I can ping my created multilevel sub-domains that haven't created by that Pointers
and I receive just “There is no subdomain here.” error message when I want to access them
can I redirect them to another address?
and then rewrite the URL after redirecting for displaying the multilevel address?
 
I feel liek I've missed something.
/me translates virtual pointers as CNAME
lets rename stuff for lols
Best way is to create one, then query the dns and see what it ACTUALLY is.
 
@djsmiley2k you mean I create a CNAME for my multilevel sub-domain that I've created by DNS Records?
@djsmiley2k First, thank you to try help me mate
 
2:08 PM
@MRS1367 I'm saying I guess virtual pointers are actually just CNAME's with a stupid name.
 
Thank you and @TomWijsman
 
Can we start near the begining?
Maybe you've already got a question up?
 
@djsmiley2k So, I try it now
@djsmiley2k Yes

dang
 
I've described all things that I've done
with full details
 
2:16 PM
yeah, that's good
maybe a link to the english instructions websitepanel.net/documentation/users-guide/domains
You could use a sub-domain to create a new web site, but you cannot create another sub-domain based on it.
Boom, can't be done
documentation says so
 
@djsmiley2k Why?!!!!!
 
Ask the websitepanel makers :<
 
I see this in my Host Provider web pages:

17 mins ago, by MRS1367
you can use Virtual Sub-domains (that is supported by URL Rewrite feature in IIS 7 and later)
@djsmiley2k So, one question...
 
sure?
Does it let you publish a subsubdomain via the DNS?
 
Since I can ping the created sub-domain manually (via DNS Zone Records)
16 mins ago, by MRS1367
and I receive just “There is no subdomain here.” error message when I want to access them
16 mins ago, by MRS1367
can I redirect them to another address?
15 mins ago, by MRS1367
and then rewrite the URL after redirecting for displaying the multilevel address?
@djsmiley2k -> yes
 
2:20 PM
k then
 
z.y.x.com CNAME zy.x.com
yeah i read all of that already.
 
@djsmiley2k aha
Sorry
 
no problem
 
@djsmiley2k wait
 
2:22 PM
have you tried what I just suggested wit hthe CNAME to a normal subdomain?
I.... think so.
the CNAME gets followed before the server is reached
 
I check it now
 
So the IIS shouldn't give you the 'unknown' issue.
 
@djsmiley2k Adding CNAME to the DNS Zone Records
will get time to register in DNS Server?
I added a CNAME record for redirecting to the related location
but for now, I get the same message
 
and that location is just 1 subdomain deep?
 
@djsmiley2k -> yes
 
2:28 PM
what does a nslookup on the subsub domain return?
 
lemme check
 
should return the single subdomain
 
I get this for one-level sub-domain that I've created by DNS Zone Records not by Add Pointer
Server:  recursive2.dci.ir
Address:  217.218.155.155

*** recursive2.dci.ir can't find test.domain.com: Server failed
 
then it's not actually adding them :/
 
and I get this one for two-level sub-domain
Server:  recursive2.dci.ir
Address:  217.218.155.155

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    test1.test.domain.com
Address:  185.10.72.200
 
2:32 PM
hmmm
that's not a CNAME tho,
 
and I get this one for a one-level sub-domain created with Add Pointer
Server:  recursive2.dci.ir
Address:  217.218.155.155

*** recursive2.dci.ir can't find example.domain.com: Server failed
 
how did you add the 2 level domain one?
As that seem to be the only way that's actually working.
 
you mean how I've added the test in the test1.test?
 
how you got that registered, yes
 
@djsmiley2k I've added the first one (test) by DNS Zone Records
test    A    SelectedDomainIP
@djsmiley2k have you find any clue?
 
2:43 PM
how did you get test1.test working then? ;/
 
@djsmiley2k -> I don't know!!! :|
 
test1      CNAME          test.SelectedDomain.blah
?
it just works by default?
 
@djsmiley2k I've added this for that:
 
iright I've gotta go home
I'll take another look later.
 
test1.test    CNAME    domain.com/test/test1
@djsmiley2k Thank you a lot mate
 
3:16 PM
@djsmiley2k Yeah, renaming things to universal concepts could help.
 
Woah, that's probably the longest question I've ever seen
 
@MRS1367 Please note that the chat is indexed by search engines. Since I see you blurring things out there but not here.
 
@TomWijsman Thank you for your advice
@OliverSalzburg :)
@TomWijsman I think find a clue to finalize the question ad reach the answer
can I ask a question if you have time now?
 
All of this for creating a simple subdomain?
 
@OliverSalzburg yep
 
3:20 PM
From what I understood, subsubdomains.
@MRS1367 I never have time; so, ask anyway. Others here know server stuff too anyway...
 
When the URL Redirect and Rewrite will execute?
For example if I type something like this:
test.domain.com
 
it'll ask DNS where server is, DNS will answer with IP of server, your browser will request page from the server over HTTP protocol, IIS will process the request
 
When the URL Rewrite and Redirect Rules declared in IIS will execute?
@TomWijsman -> so, I can't do that with ant method :(
because I found this:
 
In part of that request process, IIS will evaluate the requested hostname and URL and use the URL Redirect and Rewrite filter.
That filter then can determine which folder IIS needs to access to get the page to answer to the request.
 
I can't add CNAME and A records with the same name in my DNS Zone Records page
 
3:26 PM
@MRS1367 Of course not :D
 
@OliverSalzburg -> so, I can't do that anyway
and I only can add one-level sub-domain
 
Right. And why would you?
 
only with Add Pointer
@OliverSalzburg to register a new sub-domain manually (for registering multilevel sub-domains)
and then redirect them to the related location
because the WebsitePanel doesn't allow add multilevel dub-domains
and only allow adding one-level sub-domains just only with Add Pointer web page in its CP
I need to create (two/three)-level sub-domains
 
How many webservers do you have?
 
and I can't do that :(
@OliverSalzburg two
 
3:31 PM
That sounds like a trivial DNS setup to me
 
I can't understand the Virtual Pointer
what it does exactly?
 
No idea what that's supposed to mean
 
why WebsitePanel developers prevent from adding multilevel sub-domains?!!!
 
But, unless, in your multi-level domain setup, you need to vary a lot between your two servers, you've overcomplicating your setup

@OliverSalzburg -> nope
I want to create multilevel for one webserver
 
3:33 PM
When you set up an A record for test.domain.com, all requests to test.domain.com and a.test.domain.com and b.test.domain.com are sent to the same server
There is no need to set up any deeper levels
 
I know that
but it doesn't work
because:
> You could use a sub-domain to create a new web site, but you cannot create another sub-domain based on it. Sub-domain cannot be added as a pointer to some web site.
I found this in my Host Provider web pages too:

Er, wait, scratch the previous statement, I was confused ;D
 
Virtual Sub-domains I can't understand this statements!!!!
Virtual Pointer and Virtual Sub-domains!!!
 
You could create a * A record to send requests to any subdomain to your webserver
 
@OliverSalzburg but it doesn't work too
 
3:37 PM
I guess they're referring to exactly that, you create a * record to send all requests to your IIS, then you set up virtual domains in IIS.
 
if I add any sub-domain via DNS Records manually
it doesn't work
and it will work via Add Pointer web page
and only for one-level sub-domains
 
Hello
 
@OliverSalzburg can u explain more
 
@MRS1367 Create a new record, Type: A, Name: *, IP: your server
 
@OliverSalzburg I have it in my DNS Records
 
3:40 PM
This should make it so that any subdomain, no matter how deeply nested, should be directed to your server
 
@OliverSalzburg so, you mean I can add test1.test too?
 
@MRS1367 You won't need to do that if you have a * entry
 
@OliverSalzburg but I've read that if I want to refer to multilevel sub-domains
we must related * wildcard in the DNS Zone Records
for example for two-level sub-domains:
*.*
 
@MRS1367 That is not required
 
and can't add nested sub-domains by * wildcard
@OliverSalzburg - so, I can do that via IIS?
I mean this method:
 
3:43 PM
@MRS1367 Yes
That is what you need to do in IIS
 
please check the "Wildcard DNS -> Creating a sub-domain by programming:" section in my question
 
You don't need programming. You only tell IIS which virtual website to direct the request to, based on the HTTP HOST header that is sent by the client
That header will contain the full domain the client used to contact the server
 
@OliverSalzburg lemme check
lemme say that
it's not on the company web servers
it has been hosted on a host provider company servers
and I worked with it via Remote IIS
 
@MRS1367 The process should still be the same
 
@OliverSalzburg so, wait, lemem check
@OliverSalzburg -> I'm following the instructions in that web page you mentioned above
 
3:51 PM
That is a more recent screenshot of the new IIS manager
 
But the "Properties" option isn't exist for Remote IIS websites
 
@MRS1367 On the left side you have the Connections panel and it shows the name of the server you're connected to, which has an item named "Sites" in the tree, right?
 
@OliverSalzburg wait
@OliverSalzburg I don't have any Sites folder in there
 
Okay, the globe symbol mean it's a site
 
@OliverSalzburg aha
 
3:59 PM
When you right-click the server, the icon above the site, do you get a Add Web Site... option?
 
I think you mean the Sites folder in the local websites
sorry
@OliverSalzburg yep
I know the other things
 
@MRS1367 That should allow you to set up a new site, based on the host name, which I explained earlier
 
I think that I must do it on the website that I connected to it via Remote IIS
@OliverSalzburg So, can I ask another question?
 
when I deploy another website for example for test1.test.example.com
How the end-users will access to it
Sorry
Since I'm newbie to some of the concepts
 
4:04 PM
What do you mean exactly?
 
I mean the end-users have access to the website on the Host Provider not my local web server
 
Yeah...
They type the URL into their browser address bar and that's how they get to it
 
so, how they can get access to what I created on my local web server?
lemme explain it
I've created it via what you said
test1.test.example.com
on my local webserver
 
Well, it won't do you any good on your local webserver
You need to do it on the hosted server by your provider
 
@OliverSalzburg aha
on that server
I got it finally
It can be done on dedicated servers not shared servers and I got it
@OliverSalzburg Just add the answer and I'll accept it
 
4:09 PM
Okay :)
 
And thank you a lot
 
You're welcome
 
@Ramhound You around?
 
4:25 PM
Anyone have trouble with transparent PNG images before? I am working on a registry edit which requires one and the registry edit seems to be picky.

@OliverSalzburg -> I only have doubt about it and only want to ensure about it
Can't upload or modify the files via Remote IIS, right?
And must create a local website for that website and do that things with this local website
Remote IIS is just for managing IIS on the remote server, right?
 
@ton.yeung possibly, but since the answer is a "yes or no", it's probably not a good question
 
@MRS1367 Correct. But at some point you need to transfer the files of the website to the remote IIS as well

@Michael Frank, I have one with a registry edit for help files in windows help and support on windows 8.1 on above. I need a simple logo help file example that applies to the TechNet article and have tried a few things but a woman keeps wanting to bicker with me on the post and I am still a little new to this. superuser.com/questions/923541/…
@MichaelFrank Its simple the registry picture has a path to a logo picture which is 145*80 like the article says. In additions, it needs to be transparent? I am thinking about making a post about this on Microsoft's MSDN wiki and posting a blog article on it if I get it working. I think I will even make a tutorial on code project about how to automate this process and explain how to make a simple help file.

I am trying but I think its a problem with the value I am entering into the RGB TileColour value. I have not gotten it to work. I even posted a sample picture and have another simple red one not working whatsoever. I tried the RGB code for black on the sample picture that was posted and it did not work.
It seems simple but the process is very picky in windows from what I can see.
 
uhmm.... I did not edit the answer [yet] and it was accepted
