atlassian database configuration file

Where is the Database configuration file? I "often" have to change the database location from "localhost" to another one in the Atlassian products I use and I spend some amount of time figuring out where is the configuration stored.

Here I am.

Bamboo database configuration is in "bamboo-home/bamboo.cfg.xml"
Bitbucket database configuration is in "application-data/shared/"
Confluence database configuration is in "confluence/application-data/confluence.cfg.xml"
Jira database configuration is in "jira/application-data/dbconfig.xml"

How toStop PostgreSQL
systemctl stop postgresql
Move  "/var/lib/pgsql" and retain ownership & permissions
rsync -av /var/lib/pgsql /data/
Note: don't remove "/var/lib/pgsql" yet!

Configure "/data/pgsql/data/postgresql.conf" with the new location:

Jira server Firefox mobile

Make Jira server to deliver the mobile version when using Firefox Mobile. My use case I mostly receive Jira notifications by Email, read on my telephone.
When I want to comment the notification from my telephone, I usually choose Firefox Mobile.
Problem Unfortunately (dunno if it has to do with fortune), Firefox Mobile is not a supported web browser, so that Atlassian has made the choice to deliver the desktop version if the client is the client browses with an unsupported browser.
Solution I have an Apache reverse proxy in front of my Jira instance: I can force a Redirection to the mobile URL if I match the Firefox Mobile User-Agent.

... RewriteCond "%{HTTP_USER_AGENT}" "^Mozilla\/[1-9]\.0 \(Android [1-9]\.0\.0; Mobile; rv:[1-9][1-9]\.0\) Gecko\/[1-9][1-9]\.0 Firefox\/[1-9][1-9]\.0$" RewriteRule "^/browse/(.+)$" "$1" [R,L,NE] RewriteRule "^/browse/(.+)#add-comment$…

Vsftpd LXC ERR500

VSFTPD in container list error 500 When running VSFTPD in a container (LXC here, did not try on Docker), default configuration makes directory listing unavailable.
Listing directory content generate an Error 500: $ lftp cd ok, cwd=/os lftp> ls ls: Fatal error: 500 OOPS: This is due to the fact VSFTPD use "seccomp" (well, dont ask what it is: I dont know) In order to work arround, I just had to add this line to the VSFTPD configuration: seccomp_sandbox=NO There are many references to this, no need for me to be anotehre reference, I just wrote this article as a reminder for myself:

I have a file (music playlist, user list,...)I want to disorder it, just like I woul beat the cardsI asked this a long time ago on Usenet (fr.comp.os.unix), and I got this anwser from St├ęphane CHAZELAS.

If the file is not too big:
awk < fichier '{a[n++]=$0} END{for(srand();n--;a[i]=b) {b=a[n];a[n]=a[i=int(rand()*NR)]}; while(++n<NR)print a[n]}'

awk < fichier 'BEGIN{srand()}{print rand(),$0}'  | sort -k1,1 | cut -d -f2-
