Today I needed to have the latest version of HTTrack installed to make a (static) mirror of a website that I managed
After a few attempts, this is how you compile & install HTTrack from source on Ubuntu :
mv cserv.php3\?File\=httrack.tar.gz httrack.tar.gz
tar xzvf httrack.tar.gz
### the following is the key to a successful install
apt-get install zlib1g-dev libssl-dev build-essential
./configure && make && make install
A few days ago I got reports that a server is running its cron jobs at strange times. Logged in, and indeed it was. A huge backup was running during peak hours. Saying that it disrupt people’s work is an understatement.
To my surprise, the explanation for this issue can not be found straightaway. Took some googling to find the cause. And even more time to find the correct solution.
So to cut the chase – /etc/localtime was a link to /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/NewYork
Changed it to /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Jakarta – and voila, now the cronjobs are running at the correct times.
