Display IP address in console login screen

Here is one liner that will add the current IP address in the console login screen (if you are not running X as is case for servers):

 (ip -o -4 a| awk '$2 !="lo" {print "\nIP Address ::"$4}' |tr '\n' ',';echo)>>/etc/issue

Just execute the above command as root. It will add the required code in “/etc/issue” to display the IP address. BTW, you can also use “\4” or “\6” instead of that command to get the IP but that will not work with some old versions of Linux.

Port php mysql scripts to php 7.0 from 5.x version

Recently I got a script or series of scripts that were written for PHP 5.6x and hence used mysql_connect which as you know by now does not work with PHP 7.0. Since there were number of scripts, I thought it would be waste of time to change them manually and wrote a script to fix them. If you have similar situation then probably this few lines could help you.

Since my scripts did not use all the functions so I did not put the sed commands for all of them but you get the idea 🙂
