Error running npm command

12 September 2017, in

If you already faced this error:

/usr/bin/env: ‘node’: No such file or directory

Then you are probably installed npm on Ubuntu using package manager.

The issue is simple, it just a naming issue nodejs instead of node, all you need to do is adding a symlink:

ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/node

Cheers :)

How to test RSYNC before already syncing

21 October 2016, in

Wrong execution of rsync command can result a mess that you may cost you some precious time to fix later, so you can test the rsync command before already executing it using the (-n) parameter or (--dry-run):

rsync -anv path/to/file/with/trailing/slash/  path/to/file/without/trailing/slash

Then you can execute it by removing the dry run parameter:

rsync -av path/to/file/with/trailing/slash/  path/to/file/without/trailing/slash

PHP - Ubuntu: supported locales

26 November 2013, in

1. First of all list supported locales:

cat /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED

2. Copy the locales for your region. I will copy the following lines:

sv_SE.UTF-8 UTF-8

sv_SE ISO-8859-1

3. Edit the list of 'supported locales' and paste your locales that you've copied. (See step above)

gedit /var/lib/locales/supported.d/local

First, you'll want to add the extra repositories to Ubuntu's sources.list file.

From a command shell, you will run the following commands:

Adding extra Repositories on Ubuntu

20 June 2012, in

Repositories on Ubuntu are the locations that you can download software from. As a general rule, the default repositories don't contain the right locations for most software packages that you'll want to install. You will want to open up the /etc/apt/sources.list file, find and uncomment the following lines

deb dapper universe main restricted universe

deb dapper-security universe

To create a new database, use the mysqladmin command:
