Locked out of dedicated server because of chmod

So, I accidentally ran chmod -x / instead of what I meant to, and therefore broke a load of stuff on my server. Because of this, I can’t do things like log into the normal way, and am having to use other methods.

I tried this Fix permissions of server after accidental chmod but just got tons of permission issues that look a bit like “changing permission of ‘/proc/sys/net/etc..” and then it still does not work. I also get this for a lot of other directories.

If you could let me know how to fix this or any other information you need, that would be great.

I can’t install Ubuntu because of a problem related to partition alignment?

The hard disk of my computer failed, so I bought a new external hard disk, to install Ubuntu on it, and let me use my computer.

I have experience installing Ubuntu in a USB flash memory,

So I followed those steps and everything was going fine until in the window of partition menu I pressed the “Install Now” button.

Data: My new HDD is of one tera, “Adata” is the brand, it is connected by a USB cable.

It appeared the following warning:

The partition /dev/adb5 assigned to / starts at an offset of 2048 bytes from the minimum alignment for this disk, which may lead to very poor performance. Since you are formatting this partition, you should correct this problem now by realign the partition, as it will be difficult to change later, to do this go back to the main partition menu, delete the partition, and recreate it in the same position with the same settings. This will cause the partition to start at a point best suited for this disk.

There were also three buttons: “x”, “cancel” and “accept”. Whichever I click on it returns me to the partition menu.

I do as the message says: I erase all the partitions and created a new one using it as / but that doesn’t solves the problem, and the warning appears again, I do not know what I am doing wrong.

Using the program gparted is not helping nor working at all.

I would like to install it although it would have a low performance, but it doesn’t let me.

I’ve been also creating two or more partitions, for example I created one of the size of half of the disk and the second of the rest of the size, this changes the offset bytes number that appears in the warning, but that does not solve the problem.

Monitor process, because writing stuck sometimes for 1 second


Linux local 5.0.0-27-lowlatency #28-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT Tue Aug 20 20:33:37 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux 


Sometimes, when I am writing, cursor stuck for second and then it write many same chars, form example rrrrr, etc.

I believe this is caused by some process.


Is some good tool for monitoring and search which process do it? I tried top, but quite difficult to find “bad” process. Better no GUI app please.

I have suspicion for these processes (in evolution, when answer email as RE), or java process (dbeaver).

Question 2

Is possible to do something with that? For fluent running of system.


Site creation can’t continue because of a configuration issue with the parent site

I’m having problems to make my site creation work.

I followed the guide at this blog, everything is setup as what described. If I go to personal site, i.e. http://my_host.com:80/my/myinc_sp_test, I can see the new site link. When click it, it pops this error shown in screen shot. What I wanted to do is create the site collect at: http://my_host.com:80/my/testtest

However, if I go to this page’s site content, create a subsite, it works fine. One subsite url is shown in screen shot with yellow circle. The created subsite is at: http://my_host.com:80/my/myinc_sp_test/testtest

myinc is the domain name, it is the prefix for personal site.

anyone knows something about this error? or any clue how I can fix this?

BTW, if I go to http://my_host.com:80/_layouts/15/scsignup.aspx , I can see the create team site page, fill in info, click the create button. It shows error with no much other info.


enter image description here

*** BTW, I just know 1 thing: this site collection (my site host) was migrated from another server. Here is how it was done: create web app on this new server, then export content database from the old server, then attach to the new server. after this, everything else works fine. Could it because of this?

UPDATE: This is odd. I removed all permissions, add permissions, disable self-service, then enable self-service. Then try to create the site (it is site collection, not subsite under personal site). same error messages. The setting I use is in below screen shot: enter image description here

So, I played the settings, and I accidentally changed one setting: I removed the “my/[%userid%]” in the above screen (so it is blank). When I try to create site again, it shows this error:

enter image description here

I’m using a domain user account. So I think if I use a farm admin account, it should be ok? It turns out YES. It works for farm admin! So, it is because of permission! But what permission? So I removed all user permissions again, and add permissions again (just like i did before), weird thing happened: now, it works for domain user! but only for root domain http://my_host.com/ . I played more and found a more weird thing. See the 2nd screen shot, I choose the “Prompt users to create a site collection under any managed path” (red circle), when I click add new site, it works:

enter image description here

See the site collection url, http://my_host.com/my/my_test_site_collection ? I do not understand what the difference between this and the choice in the 1st screenshot (if I give it a name my_test_site_collection).

Anyone understand this? to me, I’m ok with it since I can use it (the last screen), but would like to know why it shows error in the first screen.

Opening document from Search results – This action couldn’t be performed because Office doesn’t recognize the command it was given

Hi I am trying to open an Office document by clicking on the search results document title, however an error box pops up saying:

This action couldn't be performed because Office doesn't recognize the command it was given.

From the same computer with the above error, it can open in Chrome OK.

If I copy the url of the document and paste it in to a new Window in IE, the document opens OK.

If I right click and open the document in a new tab in IE, again it opens OK.

It is only when left clicking and trying to open the document from the Search results window.

On another computer I get the same error as above in IE, and yet another third computer again it works in IE!

Screenshot of the issue is below:


How do you communicate to a user that their money will not be available because of a technical limitation?

We have a feature that allows a user to add a button where they can accept online payments. The payments are processed via Stripe.

It’s pretty straightforward – user creates a payment button, user connects to Stripe, user can then start accepting donations.

However, the issue here is that there are certain countries where Stripe isn’t available. Ideally, we hide this feature in countries where Stripe is unavailable, but there is a technical limitation at the moment where this cannot be addressed.

Here’s the scenario:

  1. User adds a payment button.
  2. A customer of theirs makes a payment.
  3. If we detect that this user has integrated with Stripe, then the payment appears in their account without a problem.

But, if a Stripe connection isn’t detected, the user gets an email saying, “You’ve received a donation. To claim your funds, please sign-up for a Stripe account.”

While this wouldn’t be an issue for many as they can just connect to Stripe as next steps, the problem is if/when Stripe isn’t available in their country – ie: “You have funds, but unfortunately, there is no way to claim them because Stripe isn’t available in your country.”

What would be the best way to go about it?

Gparted can’t create partition table because flash drive is read-only

Overall, I want to make a live usb drive that installs Windows 10. Originally I did that with unetbootin which seemed to work fine. Then I tried booting from that USB-stick but nothing showed up in the boot menu. So I checked again with gparted and it says that the entire stick has no partitions:

Unallocated partition

I get this when trying to add a new partition:

No partition table found

And this when trying to create a new partition table:

Error 1

When pressing “Retry” I get this:

Error 2

I’ve found a solution online where I delete the first megabyte with mkusb of the stick but that didn’t change anything.

Did I brick my USB-stick or can I still save it?

  3. Restart Search Host Control Service.
  4. Created New Search Service Application.
  5. Set Search performance level to Reduced and Increased Time Out value in Farm Search Administration.

Error is majority is on DispForm.aspx page. Solution suggested in following is also not working

Anything which we are mission on?

Issue 2

We have created DateTime type managed property “ReceivedDate” in search schema which is searchable, Queryable, Retrievable.

But when we try to search only using ReceivedDate>01/01/2015 we are not getting any results. But if we concatenate with another text type managed property we can see the filtered results.
