Greg's Wiki

This is Greg's (also known as GreyCat's) wiki. It has some pages which may be of interest for people doing Unix shell scripting or system administration. Its official front page URL is . The 'official' channel FAQ for freenode's #bash IRC channel is BashFAQ. For common mistakes made by Bash programmers, see BashPitfalls. For learning Bash, try the BashGuide. For a quick reference, use BashSheet. For general Unix issues, try some of the pages in CategoryUnix. qmail users, see CategoryQmail. ssh users, try CategorySsh. The Debian wiki has some more resources that may be useful. Miscellaneous pages: NetEtiquette, XyProblem. There are also some rants. This wiki uses text captchas on page edits. Trusted editors will not see them.

This is a MoinMoin wiki. Language packages have been installed for English, French, German and Spanish, but virtually all the content is in English.

As of April 2014, this wiki runs on a Debian virtual private server with nginx and uWSGI. In December 2012, this wiki was moved to the same Debian virtual private server with Apache2 and mod_wsgi. Prior to that, it ran on an OpenBSD box with a very slow Internet connection, using CherryPy with Apache rewriting magic to help out. Prior to that, it ran on the same box using the "twisted" package (instructions for that no longer exist!), with a simpler Apache reverse proxy pointing to it.
