Cyrus sasld testsaslauthd connect() : No such file or directory 0

Submitted by Druss on Wed, 2012-07-11 01:22

While trying to debug a postfix authentication issue in Debian 6, I had to use testsaslauthd to test things out:
testsaslauthd -s smtp -u foo@example.com -p test

only to get the following error:
connect() : No such file or directory 0

This is apparently because a lot of people (and authors) follow the same guide for configuring postfix and saslauthd. One of the steps missing is to symlink and saslauthd directory to a location within postfix. To fix:

Nagios: error: Could not stat() command file /var/lib/nagios3/rw/nagios.cmd

Submitted by Druss on Mon, 2012-07-09 19:39

I've been trying to .. empower .. the Nagios 3 web interface in Ubuntu/Debian to allow me to turn off service checking at will. I do this when I am checking logs etc. to debug some issue and all the spam from Nagios' polling is getting in the way. Nagios comes with an option to "disable active checks of this service" which when click should, well, disable active checks of the service. Clicking it, however, resulted in the following message:

Nagios is currently not checking for external commands.

Drupal: PHP Fatal error: Undefined class constant 'MYSQL_ATTR_USE_BUFFERED_QUERY'

Submitted by Druss on Sat, 2012-07-07 23:38

While setting up Drupal on a friend's Ubuntu server, I ran into the following error message:

PHP Fatal error: Undefined class constant 'MYSQL_ATTR_USE_BUFFERED_QUERY' in /var/www/mysite/includes/database/mysql/database.inc on line 42

This basically simply means that the PHP PDO extension has not been installed. It can be installed via something along the lines of:
sudo aptitude install php5-mysql

While you are at it, make sure that all the other PHP extensions that Drupal requires are also installed.

Postfix/Sendmail: Frequent emails from smmsp to root

Submitted by Druss on Fri, 2012-07-06 03:31

I just finished setting up postfix on a Debian 6 machine. All is peachy. However, when I checked my mail logs to see how things were going I noticed a number of entries for messages being sent from smmsp@example.com to root. Checking root's mail led to messages with the following content:
/usr/share/sendmail/sendmail: line 880: /usr/sbin/sendmail-msp: No such file or directory

Drupal Twitter & Oauth modules: exception 'TwitterException' with message 'Read-only application cannot POST'

Submitted by Druss on Wed, 2012-05-16 21:35

Today, I was trying to get Drupal to automatically announce new posts on Twitter. To do this, I had to install the Twitter and OAuth modules. Following instructions, I created an application on Twitter and linked my Drupal account to it configuring it to announce new posts upon publishing them. However, this did not work as I ran into the following long-winded error message in the logs:

My upgrade from Lucid to Precise did not go well and I've been battling errors ever since. I ran into the following error when trying to reinstall the php5-gd extension for PHP:

After my upgrade from Lucid to Precise (and thereby, from MySQL 5.1 to 5.5), I found that my MySQL instance was not running. When I tried to start the service all I got back was that it had failed to start.
