Fix proftpd-utils on Amazon Linux

Nov
16

Amazon just fix your shit please!!

Anyway if you are trying to install proftpd-utils on Amazon linux probably you’ve ran into this beauty:

Error: Package: perl-Crypt-Cracklib-1.7-1.el6.x86_64 (epel)
Requires: perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_5.10.1)

How to fix it:

yum group install “development tools”

yum install perl-CPAN cracklib-devel perl-Mail-Sendmail

perl -MCPAN -e shell

enter….enter all the way to the prompt cpan[1]>

install Crypt::Cracklib

At the time of this writing Amazon Linux uses proftpd-1.3.3g-10.el6.x86_64 so you will need to find proftpd-utils-1.3.3g-10.el6.x86_64.rpm

here is a mirror: ftp://mirror.switch.ch/pool/4/mirror/epel/6/x86_64/Packages/p/proftpd-utils-1.3.3g-10.el6.x86_64.rpm

rpm -ihv –nodeps ftp://mirror.switch.ch/pool/4/mirror/epel/6/x86_64/Packages/p/proftpd-utils-1.3.3g-10.el6.x86_64.rpm

 

That’s it.

 

 

 

 

 

AWS cross region ipsec VPN using Vyos and Amazon VPN

Oct
10

This has been a very challenging task but I was able to get it working after a lot of trials.

Task

You need to connect a AWS VPC running in Europe with a AWS VPC running in US.

Since i wanted to learn more about AWS I decided that i will be using the amazon VPN and connect it to a Vyatta/Vyos router running on the other end.

I will try to keep this simple.Once you have everything up and running go back and expand/secure everything.

This is not a in depth guide and i assumed you know how to setup a VPC, setup static routes ,assign IP’s etc…

VPC 1 ) Name US-VPC

IP Range : 10.100.0.0/18

Network ACL => default allow all both directions

1 public subnet 10.100.0.0/24

1 private subnet 10.100.1.0/20

1 public Route 0.0.0.0/0 => IGW

1 private route no 0.0.0/0 => nat instance

VPC 2) EU-Name EU-VPC

IP Range : 10.100.64.0/18

Network ACL => default allow all both directions

1 public subnet 10.100.64.0/24

1 private subnet 10.100.65.0/24

1 public Route 0.0.0.0/0 => IGW

1 private route no 0.0.0/0 => nat instance

Compile php 5.3 on Centos 7 from RPM

Nov
05

I recently had to build php 5.3.29 on a brand new Centos 7 Digital Ocean droplet.

Pretty simple process but i thought it would be a good ideea to share my steps…

This will be a general simple to follow howto on a brand new centos 7.1 machine.

1. install the Epel Repo
sudo rpm -ihv https://centosup.ispsystem.info/repo/SRPMS/php-5.3.29-2.el6.src.rpm

2. install the Centos Development tools.
sudo yum -y install “Development Tools”

3. Download the centos 6 rpm we will use this spec to rebuild.
I personally like to work in the /root directory for rebuilds.
su –
cd /root
rpm -ihv http://rpms.southbridge.ru/rhel6/php-5.3/x86_64/php-5.3.23-1.el6.remi.src.rpm

The rpm will create a rpmbuild directory inside the root folder

4. switch to the RPM SOURCE folder
cd /root/rpmbuild/SOURCES/

5. download the last php release (5.3.29)
wget http://at2.php.net/get/php-5.3.29.tar.bz2/from/this/mirror -O php-5.3.29.tar.bz2

6. Next step we will need to modify the php.spec file and use the latest version to build.
cd /root/rpmbuild/SPECS

With your favorite editor open the files php53.spec

replace/change the following fields.

Version: 5.3.23 with Version: 5.3.29

 

7. Install all the build required packages
yum install bzip2-devel curl-devel db4-devel gmp-devel httpd-devel pam-devel openssl-devel sqlite-devel zlib-devel pcre-devel libedit-devel libtool-ltdl-devel krb5-devel libc-client-devel cyrus-sasl-devel openldap-devel mariadb-devel postgresql-devel unixODBC-devel libxml2-devel net-snmp-devel libxslt-devel libxml2-devel libXpm-devel libjpeg-devel libpng-devel freetype-devel libtidy-devel aspell-devel recode-devel libicu-devel enchant-devel

8. the spec will look for apxs in /usr/sbin/apx and it moved to /usr/bin/apx
just symlink it
ln -s /usr/bin/apxs /usr/sbin/apxs

9. Re-compile php.
rpmbuild -ba /root/rpmbuild/SPECS/php53.spec

When the process is done you will have your Centos 7 php 5.3.29 rpm’s.

All you have to do now is install them via yum.

Optional Instal php pear

rpm -ihv rpms.southbridge.ru/rhel6/php-5.3/x86_64/php-pear-1.9.4-12.el6.remi.noarch.rpm
