How to Troubleshoot Nginx Error 414: URI Too Large. While large AJAX requests could be considered a smell, sometimes it might be easier to simply configure nginx so that it handles larger requests than simply slicing the request to and sending a batch of smaller ones.

How to Troubleshoot Nginx Error 414: URI Too Large

Why Does This Error Occur? As I was developing on my local dev environment, everything seemed to work fine. But then when I deployed my code on an Amazon EC2 instance, Nginx started complaining sending 414 “URI Too Large” errors. The most probable explanation is that the local web server that I was using (Thin/Webrick/Unicorn) by default accepts larger AJAX requests. On the other hand, Nginx usually defaults to 4kb or 8kb max. Should I Change Nginx’s Configuration? Ideally, you would want to trim your requests, or split them into a batch and send them via AJAX concurrently, rather than sending one giant request. However, this might not be feasible sometimes. For those occasions, bumping up the request cap might be the only option.


CENTOS. Apache Tomcat 7 (7.0.72) - Security Manager HOW-TO. The Java SecurityManager is what allows a web browser to run an applet in its own sandbox to prevent untrusted code from accessing files on the local file system, connecting to a host other than the one the applet was loaded from, and so on.

Apache Tomcat 7 (7.0.72) - Security Manager HOW-TO

In the same way the SecurityManager protects you from an untrusted applet running in your browser, use of a SecurityManager while running Tomcat can protect your server from trojan servlets, JSPs, JSP beans, and tag libraries. Or even inadvertent mistakes. Imagine if someone who is authorized to publish JSPs on your site inadvertently included the following in their JSP: Every time this JSP was executed by Tomcat, Tomcat would exit. Using the Java SecurityManager is just one more line of defense a system administrator can use to keep the server secure and reliable.

How to Install and Configure phpMyAdmin on CentOS 6

In addition to offering the capability to perform administration tasks such as creating, editing, or deleting databases, and managing users and permissions, phpMyAdmin provides a graphical user interface to do all of these tasks and more.

Setting / removing environment variables permanently and globally

It has been discussed, but websearch (and forum search in particular) is a challenging art mastered only be the practitioners of dark magic. The /etc/*.conf files do list paths. Dynamic linker will search them. Changes to files are not dynamic though, so you should reset the linkers cache after edits in order to see the effect immediately. /etc/profile does source the /etc/profile.d/* (either the *.sh or *.csh, depending on which shell you use) for login shell.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is special, and in general its use is not recommended. LD_LIBRARY_PATH is erased during login as a security feature so that you cannot replace the libraries that ssh-agent depends on. CentOS 6 repositories do contain both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of openmpi. The openmpi environment do pose a name conflict, so both cannot be active in same shell.
