My week has been challenging to say the least in the respect that I am trying to get stuff done, but things outside my control keep happening.
So today, I told myself I am going to get stuff done. Here are the things that I learned today.
- MySQL 5.7 has a bug in it that prevents you from setting the root password. You need to start with `skip-grant-tables` then login, run `flush privileges;` and then run `ALTER USER ‘root’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘MyNewPass’;`
- When Compiling for CentOS7, you need to have systemd-devel installed.
- Centos7 put /var/run as a tmpfs partition. To add a new folder past reboot, add a file in /etc/tmpfiles.d/
- Use shopt -s checkwinsize to fix a putty window that wont resize text lines after you resize the window.
