Enable another host connect to our MySQL Server

In some condition we need to separate between database server from server which the application running on it. In MySQL version 5.1.33-community the default configuration only allow incoming connection from localhost or the machine itself.  In that condition any mysql client applications in another host can't access to the MySQL server. We need to modify configuration in the MySQL server in order to enable another allowed to create connection. The following instruction  is what I did to solve this problem:

If phpmyAdmin was installed  and running well

1. Open any web browser, and then access the phpmyAdmin Application, for example

2. Select Privileges from tabs menu

3. Select the user who want to allow connect from anaother host

4. Modify host value from "localhost" to "any host"


if you are advanced user who familiar with SQL language or command line,  you can do this with DML (Data Manipulation Language) command to user table in mysql database.

Adding "Look Up in Dictionary" menu on Firefox

Some Mac OS X user maybe was familiar with "Look Up in Dictionary" menu. For me this Dictionary is really useful to find meaning of new vocabulary. To use it, you just need to select the word and then right click to show "Look Up in Dictionary Menu". The following image show the "Look Up in Dictionary" menu in Mail.

If your favorite web browser is Safari, you can use this feature without need any new configuration. But for user who has Mozilla Firefox as their favorite browser this feature not available in default configuration. If you are Firefox user, you must install Add-on in order to enable "Look Up in Dictionary" menu usable in Firefox. The Add-on which I means is "Mac OS X Dictionary"

If this Add-on was installed on your Mozilla Firefox browser you can enjoying the "Look Up Dictionary" menu in all web pages was opened using it.

Happy trying...

Subversion (svn) under proxy in Linux

Accessing internet in network which using proxy sometimes make me to modify any configuration of application. Tonight I'm connected to the network which using proxy and I'm trying to "checkout" using subversion and I always get ERROR message, arrrrrrgggghhhh....After searching about that problem, finally I found the solution for using subversion under network proxy. You only need to modify subversion configuration file, the file configuration is located under your home directory in hidden directory.
tnto@tnto-laptop$vim ~/.subversion/servers

And then modify the file above with the suitable values of proxy address and proxy port used in your network

ADB server in Linux for Android device debugging mode

Sometimes in android application development we must use Android device for debugging mode, if you using eclipse in windows operating system you  need the usb driver for Android device and then install it, eclipse IDE will automatically detect the android device if available. But in Linux OS you don't need any usb deriver for the device, you only need to run ADB server as root and everything will running properly.
$adb kill-server
$sudo adb devices

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 (64bit) aka Lucid Link with Eclipse Galileo

Say goodbye to compiz

This is my second day work in Linux without compiz animation and feel better without it. I'm still remember that in one year ago compiz is my weapon  to recruit or invite my friends in order to use linux as main operating system in his/her PC or laptop. The reason why I disable compiz in my computer is "I want to allocate my computer resources for better experience computer programming". Compiz animation just an option, it will be very  important for some persons and will be something useless for the others one.

Installing ADT (Android Development Tools) on Eclipse IDE

Before we talk about ADT (Android Development Tools), we will talk about "What is Android?" first? When you serach definition about Android in wikipedia, you will get the great simple definition of Android like this (LOL):
Android is Google's operating system for mobile devices. It is a competitor to Apple's iOS for the iPhone.

Wow, there a statement "competitor to Apple's iOS for the iPhone". When we define that something is competitor from the other, in our mind should have a knowing about similarity between them. Yeah...there are similarity about UI (User Interface) used by them. Maybe this only my perspective :P.

Okay, let start to install ADT for your favorite IDE

  1. The first step you must download the latest version of Eclipse IDE from it's webpage, in this case

  2. Download ADT from here

After eclipse IDE installed successfully, please following these steps:

1. In your Eclipse IDE menu bar click Help => Install New Software...

Create auto post plurk message status

What is plurk?
A really snazzy site that allows you to showcase the events that make up your life, and follow the events of the people that matter to you, in deliciously digestible short messages called plurks.


To create auto post script you just need two tools:

  1. Cron job

  2. Wget orl curl

These tools is come with most any linux distribution as default  tools.

In this tutorials I will try to explain and focus in wget only.

1. Create very simple script

- Generate and save plurk cookies in file
tnto@ubuntu-linux:~$ wget --save-cookies cookies-plurk.txt --post-data 'nick_name=tnto&password=my_plurk_password_is_weak'

- Create single file ( to load cookies file and send your plurk status message
waktu="Sekarang "$(date)
waktu2=${waktu// /%20}
wget --load-cookies cookies-plurk.txt --post-data "content= "$waktu2" (auto post)〈=en&location=&no_comments=0&qualifier=&uid=5758685"

2. Create scheduling to run your script above

I will create a simple scheduling to running the above simple script every 15 minutes.

tnto@ubuntu-linux#crontab -e

# m h  dom mon dow   command
*/15 * * * * * /home/tnto/

Waiting for new ubuntu release

Todays GNU/Linux has become familiar operating system for everyone. It's can run in various machine. Linux comes with hundreds of good and useful free software. In open source software not only free to use the computer software, but you can get the source code too. You can modify or customize it. Ubuntu is one of hundreds (may be thousand) of linux distributions.
Ubuntu is a complete Linux-based operating system containing the very best free and open source software applications you need to work and play. With Ubuntu you can surf the web, read email, create documents, presentations and spreadsheets, edit images and more.

The image bellow is chart of linux distribution schema:

Reinstalling Grub

Grub is a program which used to manage operating system if you install more than one operating system in single computer, for example you install Windows 7 and Ubuntu or another Linux Operating system.
GNU GRUB (short for GNU GRand Unified Bootloader) is a boot loader package from the GNU Project. GRUB (shortened form of GNU GRUB) is the reference implementation of the Multiboot Specification, which enables a user to have multiple operating systems on their computer, and choose which one to run when the computer starts. GRUB can be used to select from different kernel images available on a particular operating system's partitions, as well as pass boot-time parameters to such kernels. (

The conditions grub problem appear:

Install GNU/Linux operating system and then install Windows family operating system although  in different partition from existing GNU/Linux operating system.

The conditions grub problem doesn't appear:

Install any Windows family operating system and then install any GNU/Linux operating system. GNU/Linux operating system will automatically detect another existing operating system.

If the second condition happen for any reason or condition you must, the existing GNU/Linux operating system will disapper from your computer. You must reinstall the grub (if you want to use grub), these steps will lead you reinstalling your grub:

  1. You need bootable CD of GNU/Linux operating system

  2. Insert the CD into your computer optic

  3. If live CD of GNU/Linux operating system ready open terminal program

  4. Mount existing partition which installed GNU/Linux operating system
    root@linux#mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

  5. Install grub
    root@linux#grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda

  6. Reboot


The existing GNU/Linux operating system installed on /dev/sda1

Quicksort Algorithm

Quicksort is a well-known sorting algorithm developed by C. A. R. Hoare that, on average, makes Θ(nlogn) (big O notation) comparisons to sort n items. In the worst case, it makes Θ(n2) comparisons, though if implemented correctly this behavior is rare. Typically, quicksort is significantly faster in practice than other Θ(nlogn) algorithms, because its inner loop can be efficiently implemented on most architectures, and in most real-world data, it is possible to make design choices which minimize the probability of requiring quadratic time. Additionally, quicksort tends to make excellent usage of the memory hierarchy, taking perfect advantage of virtual memory and available caches. Coupled with the fact that quicksort is an in-place sort and uses no temporary memory, it is very well suited to modern computer architectures. (

Secure Shell tunneling from Linux


What is "secure shell"?
Secure Shell or SSH is a network protocol that allows data to be exchanged using a secure channel between two networked devices. Used primarily on GNU/Linux and Unix based systems to access shell accounts, SSH was designed as a replacement for Telnet and other insecure remote shells, which send information, notably passwords, in plaintext, rendering them susceptible to packet analysis. The encryption used by SSH provides confidentiality and integrity of data over an insecure network, such as the Internet.


What is "tunneling"?
Transmitting data structured in one protocol within the format of another.


Schema of SSH Tunnel


Open your linux terminal program, and execute this command:

tnto@ubuntu-linux@ssh -D 8080 tnto@


  • I have login account in host with username tnto

Now you must modify your browser preferences:

And now you can enjoy secure browsing :D

Setting HTTPS on Apache Web Server

Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is a combination of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol with the SSL/TLS protocol to provide encryption and secure (website security testing) identification of the server. HTTPS connections are often used for payment transactions on the World Wide Web and for sensitive transactions in corporate information systems. HTTPS should not be confused with Secure HTTP (S-HTTP) specified in RFC 2660. (

There are some steps to enable https protocol in apache web server.

  1. Create your certificate

  2. Reconfig your  apache web server

  3. Restart your  apache web server

1. Create your certificate

You need openssl to create crtificate
root@ubuntu-linux#openssl genrsa -des3 -out your-certificate-name.key 1024
Generating RSA private key, 1024 bit long modulus
e is 65537 (0x10001)
Enter pass phrase for your-certificate-name.key:
Verifying - Enter pass phrase for your-certificate-name.key:


Ensure a new file (your-certificate-name.key) was created from some commands above.
root@ubuntu-linux#openssl req -new -key your-certificate-name.key -x509 -days 1000 -out your-certificate-name.crt
Enter pass phrase for your-certificate-name.key:
You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:ID
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:West Java
Locality Name (eg, city) []:Bogor
Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:Bogor Agricultural University
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []:DKSI
Common Name (eg, YOUR name) []:Sutanto
Email Address []

2. Reconfig your apache web server

Modify your apache web server configuration file, add this to you configuration file
SSLCertificateFile /home/tnto/your-certificate-name.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /home/tnto/your-certificate-name.key

3. Restart your apache web server

root@ubuntu-linux#/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
