-====== BYO Scripts ====== 
  
-We talked about many different scripts and scripting languages. 
- 
-Our verdict\\ 
-C - Not a scripting language but Bob uses it for everything and loves it.\\ 
-Ruby - Great language\\ 
-Python - Closely follows\\ 
-Perl - Minimal lines of code, messy looking language\\ 
-Bash - Can be restricting and hard to read\\ 
- 
-Here are some of the scripts we covered:\\ 
- 
-===== Michael Pope's Backup Scripts ===== 
- 
-{{:​workshops:​backup.tar.gz|Michael Pope's Backup scripts}}\\ 
-To run my scripts make sure you have ruby installed. If you are on a debian/​Ubuntu based computer type: 
-  $ sudo apt-get install ruby 
- 
-Also make sure you modify the top of my scripts to backup the directories and devices relating to your computer.\\ 
- 
-backup-ltsp - Performs a 7 day rolling system and separate data backup using fsarchiver and tar with multi-core compression options. ​ Full logging is enabled. ​ This script is to be used in cron. 
- 
-backup-chroot-ltsp - If you use LTSP((Linux Terminal Server Project)) then this maybe handy as it  backs up your client image section. 
- 
-===== Rob Moonen'​s Photo to HTML Scripts ===== 
- 
-{{:​workshops:​photo2html.tar.gz|Rob Moonen'​s Photo'​s to HTML scripts}}\\ 
- 
-First master a CD with your images, using the directory structure you want to use on the webpage, mine starts with /​camera_type/​Img0001 etc... 
-You will have to change the relative path in photo2html_table.sh to reflect this. 
- 
-Next change to your working html directory and prepare your thumbnails in there. 
-Make your working directory path the same as the relative path on your CD except 
-on your www/​photo_album root. Next copy the files from the CD subdirectory in there. 
-My CD directory structure is ${Camera_name}/​IMG0001 etc... 
-The document root is /​var/​lib/​apache/​htdocs/​www/​photos this directory contains the photos in a structure Nikon/​Img0001 etc... With about 80 photos per directory, actually the same as on CD. ;-) 
- 
-To prepare your images we use part of the imagemagick suite with this command: 
-  $ mogrify -size 120x120 *.jpg -resize 120x120 +profile "​*"​ 
- 
-Now run the photo2html script thus: 
-../​../​photo2html/​photo2html.sh assuming the script is also under document root of your photo album, if not substitute the installed path to it. 
- 
-Document root of your photo album is Document root/photos 
- 
-The path for $base in photo2html.sh will have to be changed according to the distribution used. 
- 
-Finally, make sure you have a symbolic link to your /cdrom in the document root directory, mine is Nikon/​cdrom. 
- 
- 
-Oh, and here is a nice little five liner to do off-site backups of parts of your system, run 
-it as a cronjob in /​etc/​cron.daily but root will need to be using public key authentication so that there won't be a password requirement. 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-#! /bin/bash 
-enum=`date +%F` 
-tar -czf /​tmp/​backup$enum.tgz /home/mint /​etc/​X11/​xorg.conf /​etc/​crontab /​etc/​cron.daily /root/.ssh /​var/​cache/​apt/​archives --totals 
-scp -B /​tmp/​backup$enum.tgz robert@ares:/​var/​www/​ares/​mint 
-rm -rf /​tmp/​backup$enum.tgz 
-exit 0 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-And here is the script to delete old backups: 
- 
-<​code>​ 
-#!/bin/bash 
-COUNT=0 
-for file in `ls -c /​var/​www/​ares/​mint` 
-do 
-  COUNT=`expr $COUNT + 1` 
-  # If we have 8 backups, delete the last, so we only keep a weeks worth, deleting the oldest 
-  if [ 0$COUNT -eq 8 ] 
-  then 
-    rm /​var/​www/​ares/​mint/​$file 
-    COUNT=`expr $COUNT - 1` 
-  fi 
-done 
-exit 0 
-</​code>​ 
- 
-Run this script on your webserver. 
-Of course I could have just used find and the -exec option utilising rm, but I wanted to use bash. ;-)
