Apache redirection

I want to redirect all of my users who go to to I have learned that from my googling, there are 2 popular ways to do it in apache web server. First, by using mod_rewrite and second, I can use redirect. The latter is the simplest. So I chose it. :)
Put this in vhost container.

Redirect 301 /

In Mageia 4, the file is located in /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts.d and the file name is 00_default_vhosts.conf

That's it. Restart or reload apache for the changes to take effect.

Have fun!

Mageia 4 and HP Laserjet P1102 can't print

Hi all,

Since upgrading my Mageia 3 to 4, I never test my printer. It worked in Mageia 3. I never knew that it was going to give me a headache LoL. It didn't work!. I tried reinstalling the CUPS, the driver, and even changing the USB cable. It was after 2 weeks of busy schedule, I thought I wanted to try to find a solution.

After googling a bit, I found out from a post which I didnt remember to bookmark it, the culprit was the usblp module. Remove it by rmmod usblp and the printer could print again. I could say the problem is the module conflicts with the HP printer driver. Your mileage may vary.

Have fun!
