It sounds intuitive that you may just move the /var/lib/docker dir to another location and symlink it back but it won't work and you'll get an error.
How to move Docker Storage the Correct Way
This assumes that you want to use /mnt/raid as the new location.
1.) Stop Docker
systemctl stop docker
2.) Move /var/lib/docker
mv /var/lib/docker /mnt/raid/
3.) Edit the Docker daemon file
Specify the path you wan........
In this scenario, let's say you want to clone your OS at the filesystem level and the source system (the system you want to clone from) is in use.
Doing a blind rsync / is a big problem because it uses twice as much space for no reason.
The reason for this is that with ecryptfs you have a /home/.ecryptfs directory which has the actual encrypted versions of your files and folders. However your home directory (eg. /home/someuser) is mounted.
Doing the blind rsync will ca........
If you are using mint, delete the preference that stops snap from installing (as it is required for lxc)

Debian at this time does not have lxd so you'll need to use snap:

This can be used on almost anything, since Gluster is a userspace tool, based on FUSE. This means that all Gluster appears as to any application is just a directory.
Applications don't need specific support for Gluster, so long as you can tell the application to use a certain directory for storage.
One application can be for redundant and scaled storage, including for within Docker and Kubernetes, LXC, Proxmox, OpenStack, etc or just your image/web/video files or even da........
This guide assumes that you are trying to connect to a corporate network.
First of all you need to define what IPrange the OpenVPN server will be running on.

There are a few options, such as the OpenVPN sitting exclusively on the internal network, with the port and protocol that the server is used on being forwarded to this via the router and/or firewall.
Network Option 2.)

In this case I am executing using "python3" but what you find in cases like this can be surprising.
The most common issues are that someone has a module for python 2 "pip" and doesn't realize they need "pip3" to install it for python3, but this is not one of those cases.
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'bs4'
OKmaybe we didn't install it for python3?
Symbolic link not allowed or link target not accessible: /path/httpdocs/news.html
There are a few reasons that can cause this message and this is for people who have ruled out the basics, eg. your symlinks are enabled and the right permissions are applied (but read on to learn about ownership requirements above the directory in question).
So there are a few key things here that cause Apache not to follow symlinks:........
If you just do a normal chown user.user somedir it won't work. You will see the ownership is still the previous owner.
How To Change Ownership Of Symlink:
The simplest part is just adding the -h which means no dereference so it applies the ownership on the symlink and does not try (and fail) to change ownership of the dereferenced symlink destination.
chown -h user.user somedir........

systemd is like the service manager for your Centos and other modern Linux distributions (including Debian/Mint/Ubuntu) allows you to enable services, stop them, restart them, check their status and even reboot your system.
The key commands or arguments you will use with systemctl are the following:

This is not so much of a vi error as it is a physical filesystem error in the sense that the file you are trying to write to is a symlink and the destination doesn't exist or for some other reason is inacessible.
So vi is tellng you "you're writing to a symlinked file and the file the symlink points to cannot be written to". This is especially highlighted byt he fact that if you are using wq! to write and you still get the error.........

Done on Centos 7.3 very important as clearly based on older guides it was a lot easier and more simpler! Hint do not use grub2-install!

At first I thought it's just not possible but there is actually an option that can be enabled to make symlinks work with Samba.
Then I put this under the [global] section
Note: It's "wide links" and not "wide symlinks" (some other sites have incorrect info which was a frustrating waste of time :))
Add this to your smb.conf
follow symlinks = yes
wide links = yes
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
No module named yum
Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.
It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:

cp -a /your/source/. /your/dest/
-a preserves all file atributes and symlinks
the "." at the end of /source/ includes all hidden files such as .htacess, .bash_history, .ssh etc..
The / in /dest/ makes sure the contents go into it instead of replacing /dest itself (eg. if you did not have the / at the end).........
There are a few ways of doing this and all basically involve using the reverse proxy or "ProxyPass" feature of Apache to accomplish it.
1.) Create a normal vhost and simply symlink the root directory of the site you want to mirror.
Eg. originalsite.com and newsite.com
You would symlink like this:
ln -s /vhosts/originalsite.com/httpdocs vhosts/originalsite.com/........
It is a permissions issue that is hard to fix.
All but one USB device is greyed out.
I am already a member of "vboxusers"
I have already enabled and disabled USB support for the guest.
I have already reinstalled the latest VBOx guest editions
If running as root it all works fine
This can be very tricky, say you are doing development on a file that is symlinked. Doing a "cp dev.file dev.file-bk" won't do what you expect, it just links back to the same file so you haven't copied or backed anything up.
You need the "-H" switch to copy the actual file that is referenced by the symlink:
cp -Hdev.file dev.file-bk........
cp -L index.php index.php-2013-08-21
The -L switch is what you need because it's a huge issue if you think you've copied a file for backup purposes but it really just creates a symlink to the original file.........
The error itself "mkdir(): Too Many Links" is not very useful, but I'll translate it into plain English.
It means you've reached the filesystem's limit of how many directories can be created in a single directory.
In this case for ext3 the limit is 32000 and it was exceeded.
What's the solution?
The simple solution is to move those directories into more subdirectories possibly sorting them by date, alphabet or numerically.........
This is a great way to use your ftp server space, for example on your web hosting account (althoughI believe many hosts don't allow storage like this), but if you have a VPS/Dedicated Server etc.., this would be perfect. Imagine how easy it is to work with an ftp account that you can just mount as a normal partition or directory in Linux, it would be great for backups etc..
curlftpfs - mount a ftp host as a local directory
Not sure what rsync switches/options to use?
The short version would be:
I think these are really common sense options to use and probaby should be the default.
Explanation of rsync switches
P = display the progress
D = hybrid of --specials and --devices so all special and device files will be copied as well.

Everyone says there is a "manual" way of doing it and then they tell you to use iTunes, but if you're like me, you're travelling on business in a foreign country and your laptop does not have iTunes and you don't have a way of getting it and/or don't want it.

I was getting very frustrated one day wondering why it appeared my .htaccess file was being ignored and not processed by Apache. No matter what I did it was obvious that Apache didn't care about my .htaccess file. Then I realized that the default settings must be in effect, which is that my vhost didn't explicitly allow me to override the default settings.
This usually comes down to your vhost settings. Make sure you have an entry like this in your Apache vhost settings in........
When trying to even cd or ls the mounted OCFS2 partition it crashes. Ithink this is a combination of VMWare Server's problem and the way I mounted and symlinked to it.
