  1. [SOLVED] Re: SFTP connection from Windows (Filezilla) to Ubuntu.

    No way would anyone but you know to check the port. If the sftp-server process wasn't seeing any connection attempt, that would be a hint.

    Plain FTP is very different from sftp. Mixing those...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: What will be an easy way to format 4TB hard drive

    Always, always, partition a disk. ALWAYS!

    Every "cook" has a slightly different recipe.

    It depends on which hypervisor you plan to use where VMs might be stored. It also depends on you storage management choices at installation time...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: SFTP connection from Windows (Filezilla) to Ubuntu.

    I wouldn't assume that filezilla uses the same key or key format that putty uses.

    ssh-keys are per userid, per system, based on the client. The public key from 1 userid+1 system can be pushed...

  6. [ubuntu] Re: Linux/Unix commands for seraching database

    updatedb is for locate. Nothing else. Locate only looks at filenames. Nothing else and it only lets the user see filenames that userid is allowed to see.

  7. [SOLVED] Re: SFTP connection from Windows (Filezilla) to Ubuntu.

    You do not need vsftpd. Plain FTP has absolutely ZERO, nothing, nada, to do with sftp.

    If ssh works from the client to the server, then sftp should work too. If it doesn't, it is definitely a...

    Re: I don't understant this alert

    My mistake. /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ is the directory. I use tab-completion for stuff like this so I don't have to remember exact details, just enough to discover the correct answer while typing.
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Linux/Unix commands for seraching database

    You can load a search tool, like recoll, point the index engine at the directories you want indexed then use the GUI search to ... er ... search.

    For filenames, I use locate -i.

  16. [ubuntu] Re: How to change the "HOME" dir to another disk

    I think the "HOME" move already happened, but old packages and a swapfile are eating into the / partition. /boot/ is nearly full, so older kernels need to be removed too:

    sudo apt autoremove...

    If you plug in the ethernet, then you can use boot-repair to post the information we need to actually provide valid advice. Up to this point, it has been educated guessing.

  22. [ubuntu] Re: How to change the "HOME" dir to another disk

    So, it seems we have a failure to communicate, perhaps. A HOME directory is a specific thing for each username/login. It is not system-wide.
