I have a Mac with OS X, version 10.5.6, using Safari 3.2.1.

Resolved Question:

I have a Mac with OS X, version 10.5.6, using Safari 3.2.1. I'm told I can get into my internet browsing cache via: system/library/coreservices/ccacheserver. Question 1) is this correct? Question 2) it seems both my system file and my coreservices file are locked. Any way to unlock them? Any reason not to?

Hai I am Ashik. I think i can hep you

Here is to unock the files

Select the file you are trying to move, then choose Get Info from the File menu. If the Locked box is checked, deselect it, then try moving the file again.

If the item you are trying to unlock is a folder,use these steps:

  1. Open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities).
  2. Type this, followed by a space: sudo chflags -R nouchg
  3. Drag the folder you would like to unlock into the Terminal window.
  4. Press Return.
  5. Enter your password XXXXX press Return.

If you have attempted to unlock a file in the Finder but it is still locked, follow these steps to remove the system immutable bit from affected files, which can cause this issue.

 

Mac OS X 10.4 or later

  1. Start in single-user mode; for instructions see Mac OS X: How to Start up in Single-User or Verbose Mode.
  2. Type this, followed by Return: mount -uw /
  3. Type this, followed by Return:
    cd /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration
  4. Type this, on a single line, followed by Return:
    defaults write /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/autodiskmount AutomountDisksWithoutUserLogin -bool true
  5. Type this, followed by Return: sh /etc/rc
  6. Wait for the on screen text to stop scrolling and then press Return
  7. Type this, followed by Return:
    find / -flags schg -exec chflags noschg {} \;
  8. Once this is finished, type this followed by Return:
    rm /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/autodiskmount.plist
  9. Type this followed by Return: reboot

I'm quite new at this and can't get past step 1--I don't know how to open the terminal in a way that shows a window that allows me to type anything in
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
Goto MachintoshHD(SystemDisk) of Mac
Then Goto Applications and goto utilities. If you cannot open it in this way Search it on Spotlight. Search Terminal on spotlight and you will get it.
After open terminal type this followed by a space
sudo chflags -R nouchg _______________________ (___means space to drag,dont write it on terminal)
then drag the folder you want to unlock and press return key. then a box will appear asking password, enter your password XXXXX press enter

Okay. It's telling me that if I do this, I could lose data, and I don't want to mess anything up. The first question I asked wasn't answered. Is my browsing log stored in CCacheServer? Am I correct that that's the file I need opened? And, in order to get to CCacheServer, I have to go through the System file, which shows up as an file folder icon with an X on it, then CoreServices, which also shows as a folder with an X. Neither of them, however, shows up as "locked" when I click on "get info."
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
System files are basically come with locked..
Do you just want to browse the cache of Safari.
I dont understand what you mean. Can u please explain to me.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes, I think all I want to do is browse the cache of Safari--assuming the cache is where the log of all sites visited is stored.
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
