9 August 2022, 20:53 UTCEmail - magic of the elders?
Quite a few 2fa systems using email out there these days.
Too bad the ticket system requires a successful login to create a ticket
in order to let them know their 2fa email delivery is not working.
It is a sad state of affairs when running an MTA confounds a company.
At least there is comfort in knowing the status page can deliver the "we know it is frustrating but we are working on it" message.

When you feel the need to simulate a shared dialup connection,
there is always Xfinity to the rescue.
13 April 2022, 19:54 UTCDNS CNAME record conflicts with other types
If you have a CNAME for a subdomain, this will block the other records for that same subdomain.
E.G. subdomain.domain.tld TXT blaaaaaaablaaaaaaaaaaa subdomain.domain.dlt CNAME some.domain.other
A query for the TXT record will only return the CNAME as it short circuits the lookup - just like at the case for a bare domain CNAME record.
Reference: https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc1034 If a CNAME RR is present at a node, no other data should be present; this ensures that the data for a canonical name and its aliases cannot be different. This rule also insures that a cached CNAME can be used without checking with an authoritative server for other RR types.
But as always, in the case of "should" in an RFC, you might find odd behavior based on your implementation, but it would probably
be better if the semantics of handing off the queries to the alias domain remain intact.

30 March 2021, 22:44 UTCMigration of Concrete5 stuff (and Laravel) to newer servers
Migrating an older C5 site to Mysql 8.0 and hitting this error?
mysqli error: [1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'Groups where gID = '1'' at line 1] in EXECUTE("select * from Groups where gID = '1'")
Check that you applied the mysql updates as well.
If you don't see the error, check your debugging setting:
UPDATE Config SET cfValue = 1 WHERE cfKey = 'SITE_DEBUG_LEVEL';
If you can't connect to the database and it is MySQL 8.0
The codebase might not be using the default new plugin caching_sha2_password
but rather the mysql_native_password
Check for them with: SELECT User, Plugin from mysql.user; - gather up the usernames and passwords the code uses. This might work: ALTER USER 'c5dbuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'c5password'; flush privileges; If that does not work re-create the user: - First record the users privs to which db's! DROP USER 'c5dbuser'@'localhost'; CREATE USER 'c5dbuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY 'c5password'; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON c5database.* TO 'c5dbuser'@'localhost'; flush privileges;
You might want to ensure the plugin is available via the my.cnf with
- if you have this in before the users are created, it should just work... default_authentication_plugin = mysql_native_password
Hitting mysql errors in your Laravel logs like this:
(after setting : APP_DEBUG=true in your .env): SQLSTATE: Syntax error or access violation: 1231 Variable 'sql_mode' can't be set to the value of 'NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER'
It seems later Mysql 8 removed the option, so remove it from your database.php config file
