(This question is related to but different from Would you install phpmyadmin on a production web server?)
I want to use PhpMyAdmin to access my production database. I'd rather not have it installed on the production server. Would it be reasonable/safe to run it on a different server, but have it access my production database over the Internet?
I am trying to do safe process killing for salvaging memory. Is it safe to kill all background processes in a an activity by calling either ActivityManager.killBackgroundProcesses or IActivityManager.killAllBackgroundProcesses? I know it is painful in case one of the killed processes needs to be restarted, but is it safe?
Anyone know why ...I have a weird phone as it is...none of the button combos are correct but I have figured out how to work around this. Can't boot phone unless I push the menu, camera, and volume down button.
I know that the PCI standard does not allow you to use real credit card numbers on test systems. Visa, Mastercard and Amex supply a list of "test" cards to use. Makes perfect sense, and we have been doing that.
Now, once everything is setup in production, we often need to test the system before allow clients to use it. We have a pre-paid Visa card that we do for the final testing.
We're using Ubuntu 12.10 as our development OS for a Java web app and plan to use the same OS in production. We're interested in knowing the bare essentials to prepare the OS for production use; in other words, what are the minimum things we should do before going live in production to ensure that we don't subject the server to any security or other malicious exploits?
My Nexus 7 has taken it upon itself to boot into Safe Mode which is not what I want nor asked it to do. I can find how to do a System reset but is there a way please, of simply turning Safe Mode off without wiping my data and uninstalling my Apps?
