How to solve error SQL Import Google Cloud

error: exit status 1 stdout(capped at 100k bytes): stderr: ERROR 3546 (HY000) at line 26: @@GLOBAL.GTID_PURGED cannot be changed: the added gtid set must not overlap with @@GLOBAL.GTID_EXECUTED

To solve the problem, open the SQL file with text editor and search the error “@@GLOBAL.GTID_EXECUTED”

It should now work

Renew automatically HTTPS SSL certificates with cron and Certbot

Use the command crontab -e to edit the crontab (recurring tasks), and insert the following line:

0 0 1 * * /usr/bin/certbot renew --pre-hook “service nginx stop” --post-hook “service nginx start” --quiet > /etc/letsencrypt/renewals.log

It will renew all the certificates, the 1st of each month (0 0 1 * *), and will stop nginx before the renewal and start nginx after the renewal so it can works.
It will work on all the linux servers.

Import / Export MySQL Workbench tables in Google Cloud SQL database

If you have a database on Google Cloud and you want to import and export some tables to another database, you will need a database explorer to export your .SQL backup.

Export the tables you want in database

Google Cloud interface only allow to export all a database or a specific database, but not tables

As you can see you don’t have the option to select tables.
To do so, you will have to connect the database with a SQL explorer.
In MySQL Workbench you should go in Server > Data Export

Then you should be able to select the tables you want

select Export to Self-Contained File to have a .SQL file

Import the SQL file to Google Cloud

You will need to upload the SQL file to Google Cloud in order to import it. In order to do it, go to Google Cloud > Cloud Storage, create the bucket if it doesn’t exist yet :

create the bucket dedicated for SQL, with random numbers, to have a unique name
Upload the SQL file generated by MySQL Workbench

Then, you can go on Google Cloud > SQL > Import

Select the SQL file from the bucked and select the database you want the tables to be imported

And then you should have imported successfully the tables on the selected database. You should check it in Operations


In case of errors, check the error in Operations, and modify the .SQL file with a text editor, search the error in the SQL file and remove the lines, and repeat the process (upload it again to Google Cloud Storage and import the SQL file again)

Public Images for your React / Angular app on Google Cloud

We often need images in our React or Angular app, but putting them in the project is not clean.
So we can use Google Cloud with Cloud Storage for the images on your app.

There are many advantages of using Cloud Storage to expose public images :
– Real time maintenance (upload, delete, change, …)
– You don’t need any commit on your git (if you commit images on your Github / Gitlab for example)
– Clean project, only code files
– Light project repository to commit, images are heavy quickly

Create a Bucket

First, you need to create a Bucket (it’s like a big folder) if you don’t already have one.

Switch to Uniform access control

Then, to make your Bucket public, go to the Permissions tab, and change the access control to Uniform :

You should click Switch to Uniform, so you don’t have to make public each file one by one
You can see, if you upload your first image, that it’s not public yet

Add public access using by adding a Reader role for allUsers

You can then add the access of Object Reader to allUsers
Then you can see it’s Public to Internet and you are able to copy URL

You can now use you image anywhere, it’s on internet and anyone can see it with the URL, so you can use it to store images for your React / Angular app, all images will work.

Use Crontab for automating recurring tasks on Fedora/CentOS

You can use a tool that is called “Crontab” for recurring tasks automation. It is available for all the Linux systems and still the most used solution.

Edit the crontab configuration file

crontab -e

This will open vi, the default linux editor, that will allow you to edit the recurring tasks for a specific date and time.

# Example of job definition:
# .---------------- minute (0 - 59)
# |  .------------- hour (0 - 23)
# |  |  .---------- day of month (1 - 31)
# |  |  |  .------- month (1 - 12) OR jan,feb,mar,apr ...
# |  |  |  |  .---- day of week (0 - 6) (Sunday=0 or 7) OR sun,mon,tue,wed,thu,fri,sat
# |  |  |  |  |
# *  *  *  *  *  user command to be executed

In vi the main commands used are:
– The escape key (:x! to save OR :q! to quit)
– a to append text
– i to insert text
– dd to remove the line
– x to delete the current selected character

Verify the date and time zone

You can verify the date and the time zone (most of the cloud machines are using the UTC time zone). you can use the following command “date”:

# date
Wed Aug  4 01:10:10 UTC 2021

Sort your result by distance – Node.JS

Supposed that you return in your Node.JS backend a list of items, and you want to sort the results by distance.

For exemple, you do a GET /usersLocation and you have it:

[
   {
      name: "Paul",
      gender: "man",
      distance: 4.1
   },
   {
      name: "Philip",
      gender: "man",
      distance: 4.9
   },
   {
      name: "Elina",
      gender: "woman",
      distance: 2.5
   }
]

In your app you have the result to be listed by distance for exemple, so the user can know who is nearest first, and don’t have to scroll down to see that Elina is nearest. To do so, we can add this portion of code before returning the list of items:

    // items : variable containing all the items

    // SORT
    for(let a=items.length;a>0;a--)
    {
       for(let b=0;b<a-1;b++)
       {
          if(items[b].distance>items[b+1].distance) // we order by distance
          {
             // we swap the items
             tmp = items[b];
             items[b]=items[b+1];
             items[b+1]=tmp;
          }
       }
    }

    // returning the response for AWS Lambda
    const response = {
        statusCode: 200,
        body: JSON.stringify(items),
    };
    return response;
};

New response:

[
   {
      name: "Elina",
      gender: "woman",
      distance: 2.5
   },
   {
      name: "Paul",
      gender: "man",
      distance: 4.1
   },
   {
      name: "Philip",
      gender: "man",
      distance: 4.9
   }
]

Google Cloud Function VS AWS Lamdba (how to import)

There are some differences between Google Cloud and AWS when you want to deploy your function for your API.

My point of view is that Google Cloud function may be a bit more simple to deploy but AWS is in a way the most reliable and complete cloud environnement nowadays.

On both cloud environnement you can upload the code with a ZIP, you can so use the same way to adjust your code for AWS:

We will upgrade the code with a repository that will be in a ZIP

Differences between Google Cloud functions and AWS Lambda (Node.JS)

THE DEPENDENCIES
– In Google Cloud, the dependencies are automatically installed from the package.json file
– In AWS, you need to install the dependencies with npm or yarn, that will build the node_modules folder
If you don’t have the node_modules folder, your Lamdba function will not work with the following error:

{
  "errorType": "Runtime.ImportModuleError",
  "errorMessage": "Error: Cannot find module 'MODULE'\nRequire stack:\n- /var/task/index.js\n- /var/runtime/UserFunction.js\n- /var/runtime/index.js",
  "trace": [
    "Runtime.ImportModuleError: Error: Cannot find module 'MODULE'",
...

THE MAIN FUNCTION

With Google Cloud, the example function looks like this:

exports.helloWorld = (req, res) => {

  res.status(200).send(message);
};
  • You use the res object with the send() method to send the response

With AWS, the example function looks like this:

exports.handler = async (event) => {

    const response = {
        statusCode: 200,
        body: JSON.stringify(jsonObj),
    };
    return response;
};
  • You return a JSON object response that should contains the body and the statusCode

So the same code will looks like this:

Using parameters

Let’s say now we want to use a parameter for our route, that will be number and the value will be 10, so we will call the route helloWorld?number=10

On GOOGLE CLOUD, to get the “number” parameter, we will use the req object :

exports.helloWorld = (req, res) => {
    let number = req.query.number;

On AWS, to get the “number” parameter, we will use the event object :

exports.handler = async (event) => {
    let number = event["params"]["number"];
