@sucurisecurity killed my wordpress site (twice)

w00t w00t! mod_fcgid: stderr: PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class SucuriScanSiteCheck

Yesterday Sucuri for WordPress was updated to 1.7.18, my website immediatly went offline. I got notified about it by Jetpack.
Problem: I cannot deactivate the Sucuri plugin via the WordPress dash since the site is down and I can’t login 🙂
Solution: Logon via FTP and rename the Sucuri plugin directory to .old. My site went back up immediatly.

I tried to revert to my latest backup, which worked, and Sucuri got automaticly updated to version 1.7.19. My website went down again .. and I could start all over again, disabling the plugin over FTP

For now I leave the plugin as is. Hopefully Sucuri comes with a solution soon. I’ll wait ..

Update: after posting this to Twitter Sucuri immediately contacted me and offered to provide a solution. As we speak we are working together to get this solved. Thumbs up for a company like that.

Update2: it’s working again, but the source of the troubles is yet to be determined.

EDIT: Prune backups made with Relax and Recover #rear #linux

People keep asking me how I make incremental backups with rear, so I edited my posting about pruning backups with rear and inserted my config.

Prune backups …

If you don’t want to look that up you find my /etc/rear/local.conf below.

BACKUP=NETFS
OUTPUT=ISO
CDROM_SIZE=20
BACKUP_URL=nfs://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/volume2/LinuxDR/rear
ISO_DIR=/mnt/ISO
ISO_PREFIX=”rear-$HOSTNAME”
BACKUP_PROG_EXCLUDE=( ‘/tmp/*’ ‘/dev/shm/*’ ‘/mnt/*’ ‘/media/*’ $VAR_DIR/output/\* )
BACKUP_SELINUX_DISABLE=1
BACKUP_TYPE=incremental
FULLBACKUPDAY=Fri

I also rsync my backups to an external (Raspberry Pi 1B) server, will post about that later on.

Have fun backing up!

Let me tell you bout the birds and the bees …

and the flowers and the treeeeees!
Skip the birds, and the flowers 🙂

Leaves us with bees and trees.

My icy Trachycarpus Fortunei :-)

After being ill for over a week I was out of the house last afternoon to inspect my Trachycarpus Fortunei palm tree, which had to endure snow, ice, and freezing rain lately.

The result of all that harsh weather is somewhat awkward ..

Pretty cool, and it will survive 🙂

Half of #debian died.

Hey Ian,

You shouldn’t have done this. Barriers are never too high.
But since this happened, there is no way back. I will never know your reasons.
The only thing left for me to do is to keep using Debian, and think about you every time I login.

Thanks for everything you brought to the world. Debian, open source, and you, in my memories for ever.

Your name will always be there, in deb-ian.

RIP.
You ruled man, we will miss you very bad.
