How to whitelist your IP at CPHulk

My IP got banned by CPHulk few times and it is really not a pleasant thing knowing that you need to access your server but you just can’t because CPHulk blacklisted your IP. Great way around it is to white list your IP address in front so you don’t end up in that situation. It’s quite easy, all you need to do is to login at SSH and execute this lines:

cd /scripts
./cphulkdwhitelist xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Just don’t forge to replace xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx with your IP address 🙂

Mysqldump: Got error: 1016: Can’t open file (errno: 24) when using LOCK TABLES

Ok so today I had to dump 700mb mysql database. I have tried using standard syntax:

mysqldump -uUSER -pPASS db_name > dump.sql

But I have got the following error:
Mysqldump: Got error: 1016: Can’t open file: ‘./db_name/xxx.frm’ (errno: 24) when using LOCK TABLES

I’ve searched a bit and I have found that solution was to add parameter –lock-tables=false so the final working mysqldump command was like this

mysqldump -uUSER -pPASS db_name --lock-tables=false > dump.sql
