            DVWA setup - PHP function allow_url_include: Disabled
            Asked 2022-Jan-13 at 14:53

            I am setting up a DVWA on a Linux VM in Google Cloud.

            When I click Create/Reset Database, one line that appears to have issues is PHP function allow_url_include: Disabled.

            I've tried enabling it in the php.ini file inside the cloned dvwa repo, as well as /etc/php/7.3/fpm/ and /etc/php/7.3/cli/ directories but alas, even after running sudo service nginx restart and hitting the Create/Reset Database button doesn't resolve the issue. I've also tried both, On and "1" as values for allow_url_include but none of them seemed to make any difference.

            Is there another hidden php.ini file I need to edit or what am I missing? Thanks!



            Answered 2022-Jan-13 at 14:53

            Found two ways to solve it.

            1. Restarting the VM itself.
            2. Running sudo /etc/init.d/php7.3-fpm restart

            Thanks, @behroozrazzaghi, for the links.

            Specific argument causes argparse to parse arguments incorrectly
            Asked 2021-Dec-27 at 21:25

            I am using python argparse in a script that has so far worked perfectly. However, passing a specific filepath as an argument causes the parser to fail.

            Here is my argparse setup:

            About ten seconds after posting this I realised the error thanks to Stack Overflow syntax highlighting - the backslash in the path was escaping the quotation mark. Escaping this causes argparse to behave correctly:

            Why does calling submit on a form and click on a submit button produce different GET parameters?

            Answered 2020-Nov-28 at 17:31

            A form can have multiple submit buttons, with different names and/or values.

            When you click a submit button and the default submit action takes place, the name and value of the button you clicked are included in the form parameters when the form is submitted.

            When you call the submit() method there's no associated button click, so no button name and value will be included in the parameters. If the form has multiple submit buttons, which button would you expect it to send?

            Asked 2020-Jul-03 at 19:50

            As part of an online course I've wrote a programme that can guess passwords for an online login page. However im trying to write is so it also guesses the username. I'm very happy with what I've done so far but it can be better. I don't expect anybody to re-write it for me, but if you could have a look over it and point me in the right direction. essentially what i would like is for it to continue using a words list and to check 1 user name to all passwords. for example;

            WORDLIST abc abb acc

            first use abc and check abc, abb, acc secondly use abb and check abc, abb, acc lastly use acc and check abc, abb, acc

            Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am very new to programming. here is my code;

            You can just nest loops. For example:

            You forgot to set p=0 before passwords loop. Therefore, it gives an IndexError in the iteration of second user and first password.

            You need to make GET request for that URL first, and parse the correct "CSRF" value from the response (in this case user_token). From response HTML, you can find hidden value:
