Fantastico not installing (Not Installed)

Sometimes, even after we install it will show as “Not Installed”. Or during the installation itself, it may show an error message like “Buggy version of wget”.

To fix this, we need to correct the version of wget.

For 32-bit:

rpm -qa wget
wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/5/i386/os/
rpm -e wget
rpm -ivh –force wget-1.10.2-3.2.1.i386.rpm
rpm -qa wget

For 64-bit:

rpm -qa wget
wget http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora//releases/7/
rpm -e wget
rpm -ivh –force wget-1.10.2-15.fc7.x86_64.rpm
rpm -qa wget

Thats it!!!

Thanks for this article Gopi!

How to disable TRACE in httpd.conf

If you need to disable TRACE in httpd.conf, you can do it using the following:

# disable TRACE
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule .* – [F]

What is TRACE (in )?

The HTTP TRACE method is described in the HTTP 1.1 standard (RFC 2616, section 9.8):

The TRACE method is used to invoke a remote, application-layer loop-
back of the request message. The final recipient of the request
SHOULD reflect the message received back to the client as the
entity-body of a 200 (OK) response.

If the request is valid, the response SHOULD contain the entire
request message in the entity-body, with a Content-Type of
“message/http”. Responses to this method MUST NOT be cached.
