Fix 403 Forbidden error in OTRS/Apache

This applies to (at least) OTRS 2.2 on Fedora Core 6 running Apache 2:

To fix this, change the following in the file /etc/httpd/conf.c/otrs.conf
Find the line that reads “Deny from All”, and comment it out by placing a # at the beginning of the line.

Save the file.

Restart Apache

# service httpd restart

Now try browsing your webserver otrs from other machines, success!

Set Windows clock to UTC time

Save the following lines as utc.reg, and then run it to import this registry tweak. It allows you to set the hardware clock in your PC’s BIOS to UTC time. This is handy for boot dual-booting Mac, or Linux, when those operating systems are set to read the BIOS clock as UTC time, instead of Windows’ preferred Local Time (ie. PST, PDT, MST, MDT, CST, CDT, EST, EDT, or the standard “GMT-” and “GMT+“)

Here is the code to save as utc.reg:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation]
“RealTimeIsUniversal”=dword:00000001

How to Update Firefox on Fedora Core Linux

Using the yum command line usility:

yum -y –enablerepo=development update firefox

(there are two dashes preceding “enablerepo”)

When I used this line I got some transaction check failures thet looked something like:

file /usr/share/pkgconfig/gnome-doc-utils.pc from install of gnome-doc-utils-stylesheets-0.12.0-1.fc8 conflicts with file from package gnome-doc-utils-0.8.0-2.fc6

To fix this, I did the following:

yum -y –enablerepo=development update gnome-doc-utils

This updated the necessary packages, then I re-ran:

yum -y –enablerepo=development update firefox

Success!

Set time at command line in Linux

This works for all Linux flavors as far as I know:

The date command is used to set the system clock using the switch -s and the format MMDDhhmmYYYY (where MM=month, DD=day, hh=24-hour hour, mm=minute, YYYY=year)

The following example sets the date to January 5th 2007, 1:15 PM:

# date -s 010513152007
