    Check base system for obsolete or orphaned files

    After several freebsd-updates I ran today in an issue with /lib/libreadline conflicting with /usr/local/lib/libreadline. The former (/lib/libreadline) seems to be a left over from a previous FreeBSD version. After removing the old one in /lib and running ldconfig the bash shell started to work...

    Solved tail -n 50 error.log

    In a completely unrelated note to my recent ramblings, I'm finding I'm having an issue with tail. tail -n 50 /var/log/nginx/error.log => # usage: tail [-F | -f | -r] [-q] [-b # | -c # | -n #] [file ...] I just want to see the last 50 lines of said file. On my OSX box, works like a charm...

    Minimal Kernel & Base Config

    My goal is to create a base system with only the essential tools needed to operate a modern web server. For instance I use IPFW so I don't need PF, IPTABLED and IPFILTER. However this is my first time doing this so I would like advice / feedback on anything that looks incorrect or is a bad...

    Why am I unable to update my FreeBSD jails?

    Hello, I'm trying to update the base system of the jails on my host. I created the jails using EZJail. On the host or on the jails, I think the correct way to check if my base system is up to date is to call # freebsd-update fetch This way I get a list of available updates. If the list is...

    What happens in a jail when updating the main host system?

    Hi, despite reading and re-reading the manual, I have an extremely hard time understanding how to keep my FreeBSD host and my FreeBSD jails secure. I am going to try to express my current understanding of FreeBSD as maybe the problem is that I don't understand it. There seems to be on one...

    Using the base Subversion server

    As of FreeBSD 10.0, a "light" version of Subversion has been integrated into the base system. It includes most of the svn tools, though the filenames have been changed (e.g. "svnlite" instead of "svn", "svnliteserve" instead of "svnserve" etc.) Most people probably would use this for the...
