Put in on the desktop, then you can change it, then put it back in the folder where it was before (tested on mac mojave 10.14.6)

I overcame the issue by creating an application wrapper for the script using Platypus - https://sveinbjorn.org/platypus. I gave the resultant app Full Disk Access in the Privacy pref pane and this allowed it to run. (Any subsequent change to the core script means regenerating the app and removing and re-adding it in Privacy as the new file is not ...

It is always a security risk to run a binary as root. The better way of doing things would be to set the unix raw socket capability. sudo setcap cap_net_raw+ep /usr/bin/hping3 That way the you dont give the binary permissions that it doesnt need. (You can also look at set capabilites, e.g.: getcap /bin/ping)

I would recommend OmniDiskSweeper or DaisyDisk as native Mac tools that can sort the entire volume by size, showing you what's using the space (and even delete it from within the app).

The first thing I'd try is to keep your Finder window open to the time capsule folder where the backup is being written, in case some power-saving mechanism is disconnecting from the Time Capsule. Even better if you can occasionally remember to navigate around to really make ...

If this somehow got changed you can easily run chmod 0700 ~/{Documents,Pictures,Music,Library,Downloads,Movies} to fix it. And of course you can use the same command to change the access rights for other directories as needed. To also ...

Everything you post seems on the up and up. official apple daemon that would be expected to encrypt data and routinely generate keys and store them in the keychain lots of matches for the framework on disk signed app that is valid well documented SDK and API - https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/Networking/Conceptual/...

The commands you want to use to change the startup drive to write where at one time print out in the boot up messages. Deleting a file will only delete the directory information. There are tools around to recover data. This command will create the file zero with all zeroes in it. It will run until the disk is full. Thus, writing over the data. # to ...

To make the filesystem writable, you would use mount with the u and w options. /sbin/mount -uw /

Apache in macOS Server runs as the _www user. Try granting this user write access to the directory with an ACL entry. chmod +a "_www allow list,search,add_file,add_subdirectory,delete_child,write,append,file_inherit,directory_inherit" "/Users/<user>/Sites"
