    Debian - Time

    Time Zone

    Time zone is stored in /etc/timezone file. Running /usr/bin/tzselect will help you find your time zone but doesn't update your system.

    Setting Time Zone on system wide

    run tzconfig


    Once you've set your timezone you might wish to change the UTC setting, upon Debian machines you can find that in the /etc/default/rcS file. Although changing this will require a reboot. I think, hwclock --systohc --utc command (in case UTC=yes) could be used instead of reboot.


    Debian - BASH Prompt Customization

    Customization of the the Bash terminal line

    Add the following codes in ~/.bashrc. Every time you open a Bash terminal, the first line will show HH:MM:SS@hostname:workingDirectory # .

    Debian - Network Configuration

    Manually configure network in Debian

    If you are manually setting a static IP address in Debian, you have to edit /etc/network/interfaces. For example, if you want to change your eth0 interface to use a static IP address instead of dynamic IP address , change the following settings accordingly.

    #iface eth0 inet dhcp #Comment this line out with the pound(#) key. It was your dhcp setting(dynamic IP address).
    # Add the following lines below in /etc/network/interfaces.

    CakePHP - User Model::saveAll() to save hasMany association

    In view

      echo $form->create('Phone', array('action'=>'save'));
      for($i=0; $i<3; $i++)
        echo $form->input('Phone.'.$i.'.number');                                                                                      
      echo $form->submit('Save');
      echo $form->end();

    Here is how the Controller see the phone data after users filled the fileds and clicked on the Save button :

    [PhoneNumber] => Array
        [0] => Array
              [id] => 1
              [phone_number] => (123)456-7569
        [1] => Array

    CakePHP - Pagination

    I can't change the output of PaginatorHelper::next and PaginatorHelper::prev to return as <span>. So, I wrote code to replace <div> with <span>. https://trac.cakephp.org/ticket/3991

      if($paginator->hasPage(null, 2))// Don't display pagination if there is no second page.
        $sPrev = $paginator->prev('«'.__('Previous', true), null, null, array('class'=>'disabled'));
        $sPrev = str_replace('<div class="disabled">', '<span class="disabled">',$sPrev);
        $sPrev = str_replace('</div>', '</span>',$sPrev);
