Linux - Recovering grub and root password


If you have, a password protected grub boot loader and you forgot both root and grub password, then you can recover grub-boot loader password.


The best way to recovering (or reset) a password (and to solve many other problem) is to use Knoppix Live CD. First downloaded knoppix and then burn it on CD. Put CD into CD/DVD rom and boot system. You need to boot system into single user mode, at boot: prompt type linux single:

boot: linux single


You need to mount a partition where you grub configuration file is stored. Depend upon Linux distribution the location of Grub configuration file changes. Following list summaries Grub configuration file location:


Debian Linux Grub configuration file location: /boot/grub/menu.lst

Suse Linux Grub configuration file location: /etc/grub.conf

Red Hat/Fedora Linux Grub configuration file location: /boot/grub/grub.conf


 


If you forgot partition name use fdisk -l command to obtained partition list.

# fdisk -l


Mount your partition:

# mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt


a) If you are using Debian Linux you need to modify /boot/grub/menu.lst file:

# cd /mnt/boot/grub

# vi menu.lst



b) If you are using Suse Linux you need to modify /etc/grub.conf file

# cd /mnt/etc

# vi grub.conf


c) If you are using Red Hat / Fedora Linux you need to modify /boot/grub/grub.conf file

# cd /mnt/boot/grub

# vi grub.conf


Once file opened using text editor, locate password line and remove it:

password --md5 $1$9sdflksdf/sdf44k


Save file and reboot the system.

# sync; sync

# cd /

# umount /mnt

# reboot


 


How to: Recovering root password


If you cannot remember your root password, you need to boot your system as linux single.


If you are using GRUB, once you have loaded the GRUB boot screen, type e for edit. You are presented with a list of items in the configuration file for the boot label you have selected.


Choose the line that starts with kernel and type e to edit this boot entry.


At the end of the kernel line, add:


single


Press to exit edit mode.


Once the GRUB screen has returned, type b to boot into single user mode.


If you are using LILO, press [Ctrl]+[x] to exit the graphical LILO screen and gain access to the LILO boot: prompt.


Next, enter linux single at the LILO boot: prompt.


Once you have booted into single user mode using either GRUB or LILO and have access to the # prompt, you must type passwd root, which allows you to enter a new password for root. At this point you can type shutdown -r now to reboot the system with the new root password.


If you cannot remember your user account password, you must become root. To become root, type su - and enter your root password when prompted. Then, type passwd <username>. This allows you to enter a new password for the specified user account.


 

Using a non interactive Bash Script to Create Users And Change Passwords in LINUX

Using a non interactive Bash Script to Create Users And Change Passwords in LINUX


These two scripts are very important for the system admin who regularly works with mail servers and somehow forgets to backup his system username and password! Let’s say somehow we lost the usernames and passwords of the mail server. In this case the admin has to manually create all the users and then change the passwords for all the users. Tedious job. Let’s make our life easier.


First create a file which contains all the user name. Something like this:


user1


user2


user3


user4


user5


Save the file as userlist.txt. Now create the following bash file:


#!/bin/sh

for i in `more userlist.txt `

do

echo $i

adduser $i

done


Save the file and exit.


chmod 755 userlist.txt


Now run the file:


./userlist.txt


This will add all the users to the system. Now we have to change the passwords. Let's say we want username123 as password. So for user nayeem the password will be nayeem123, rubi123 for user rubi and so on.


Create another bash file as follows:


#!/bin/sh

for i in `more userlist.txt `

do

echo $i

echo $i"123" passwd –-stdin "$i"

echo; echo "User $username’s password changed!"

done


Run the file. All the passwords are changed.

JavaScript - Browser & Version Redirect

If you maintain separate pages for Netscape and Internet Explorer browsers and want to additionally divide each browser's page into version pages, this script is for you. The script will create a link (or can be changed to automatically redirect) to browser[version number].html. (For example, a visitor with Netscape 4.5 would see a link to netscape4.html) Here there would be a link for msie4.html







<!-- ONE STEP TO INSTALL BROWSER & VERSION REDIRECT:

1. Add the last code into the BODY of your HTML document -->


<!-- STEP ONE: Copy this code into the BODY of your HTML document -->


<BODY>


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">


<!-- Begin


var name = navigator.appName;

var vers = navigator.appVersion;

vers = vers.substring(0,1); // or 0,4 could return 4.5 instead of just 4


if (name == "Microsoft Internet Explorer")

url="msie";

else

url="netscape";

url += vers + ".html";

document.write('<center>');

document.write('<A HREF="' + url + '">Enter</A>');

document.write('</center>');


// You may make the redirection automatic by using this

// window.location=url;

// instead of the three document.write lines above


// End -->

This Script for Tell a Friend featuring
· Page tracking for landing page
· PHP Validation
· Ability to send to muliple friends at once
· User Email/Message optional or required
This PHP script consists of 2 files
1. config.php
2. tell.php
Where config.php can be used for Site Options and configuration. Open config.php and edit it to your specification, use notepad/wordpad/frontpage/dreamweaver etc. to edit it.
Setup Options:
Require Email -> Require user to enter their email to send a TAF (Tell-a-Friend) message, 1= yes, 2=no
Require Message -> Require user to enter a message to send a TAF (Tell-a-Friend) message, 1= yes, 2=no
Multiple Emails -> Allow users to send multiple emails (separated by Comma) to friends.
