I was able to score a 20 gig hard drive last night thanks to Cory. I have pretty much everything transferred over. There are still a few things that I have to fix since LInux is case sensitive as compared to Windows. I am hoping for some input to find out if this is any faster on Mstar or not. I’m hoping it is since I was up until about 4:30 last night working on this thing. For those wondering it is now running on Ubuntu Server Linux 4.04 with Apache. All open source free software now instead of Windows 2003 Server with IIS like my last setup. Everything was installed with command line. There is no GUI installed on the system. If anyone still does find a hard drive for me I am still looking. I’ll set up a new poll about the server speed to get some feedback. Also the forums were purged. No one was really using them, but I found out there was a lot of spam in them. Guests can no longer post only registered users. Hopefully that will keep it down.Â
I am thinking of switching the server to Linux and using my mstar fiber connection for the hosting. It would be a lot faster than the cable connection it is connected to right now. I have a computer and thought it was all set up, but when I got home I got the infamous click of death from the hard drive. If anyone has a spare hard drive that they could sell me for a decent price it would be appreciated. My ideal would be something in the 40GB range.
Microsoft Yesterday released Service Pack 2 for Server 2003. I just finished installing it so there was some downtime, but not long. If anyone notices any glitches please let me know. It looks like it was a success though.
The website was hacked a few hours ago. After some searching I found out what the problem was and everything is now back to normal. I’m working on putting some new patches on the phpnuke system to hopefully avoid it from happening again. Luckily I didn’t lose any data. It has been almost a year since the new server was put in place and I was thinking how smooth everything had been. That’s what I get for thinking.
This week is finally Spring Break woohoo! Wednesday night Sarah and I are heading down to St. George and get out of this Snow. It should be fun. While we are down there I am going to do a backup of the databases on the server, so there might be an hour where it is down, but it will probably be late at night and no one will notice.
