Got the following error while trying to run gitosis-init on Ununtu 9.04. After a bit of searching found it was a known bug. Workaround is to edit /usr/bin/gitosis-init to use python 2.5 instead of python 2.6.

mick@builder:/srv/gitosis$ sudo -H -u gitosis /usr/bin/gitosis-init < /tmp/id_rsa.pub

By default a new virtual machine will only be accessible from the host machine. To make it available to the network you need to go into the Network sessings for the virtial machine and select Bridged (instead of NAT).

Apache installations often announce lots of information about what they are running such as what OS is being used, the version of Apache, and what Apache Modules are loaded.

To disable this, add the following to your httpd.conf
ServerSignature Off
