Disable and re-enable your Host Only Adapter and reset your DHCP server(if you are using it in the Host Manger part of Vbox). Then try to log in again into your VM. Hopefully this will help you fix this.

Why did this happen?

There are rumors that from a recent Windows 10 update that Windows is not setting a proper default settings for VBox ( no idea which setting it is. Apparently, this has been a thing since v5 of VBox). By disabling/re-enabling the Host Only Adapter, it fixes that default setting (whatever it is :).

Happy Coding!

PROBLEM

I was trying to upload a simple file from my windows computer using SCP to my remote Linux server. There wasn’t any errors, but the file didn’t send.

SOLUTION

When SCP tries to SSH into your server, if you don’t have a part of your .bashrc file that allows non-interactive connections, it will attempt to echo out any commands you have load at the initial connection of your SSH session. This commands that echo their output unfortunately break SCP.

Add this line to your .bashrc file at the top

[ -z "$PS1" ] && return

This will allow non-interactive programs that SSH in ( in this case SCP) to connect without crapping the bed from an echo.

Happy Coding.

THE INTRO

Since I am on a Windows machine for work, I like to use the Windows Terminal App from the Windows Store. It makes having a bunch of my different Terminal windows a breeze to manage on Windows and I don’t have to pay for it, which is the best! (Sorry Moba XTerm)

THE PROBLEM

I was unable to get to my Window Store to load because my administrators blocked the store from loading

First off, this bug is bullshit. My site was working just fine in development, and now suddenly it’s completely broken. Needless to say, I am very pissed off right now while writing this. Let’s fix this thing.
