How did that get changed??

I might have done a bios reset and ide might be default. Kinda nuts, the board is old but not that old (Supermicro X8).

Would IDE mode be considered Fail Safe Defaults for compatibility of storage devices ?

If the board is old enough

I just had no idea that IDE on a SATA controller was even possible.

You can’t use su or su - to escalate as root? You need to know the root accounts password, but…

I usually configure passwordless root, so I only have sudo.

Fair enough. You are a brave one.

Not a production box so no harm done.

Does anyone here use postman or other software to interact with API’s, or does everyone just use curl?

Does anyone know basic webpage hacking (I do not)?

I might be able to help, but I’m out at the moment. I’ll have a look when I get back.

Postman is great for testing when you’re developing. If you’re interacting with a completed API, use a programming language like Python or Go.

I’m not that into this, but I came across this video the other day. Narraror goes through login, parsing process, and running page operations from objects. Might be applicable…

Thanks. I just got it working, but if I ever have to hack into web UIs again, I’ll take a look.
