hmm..web server down again!

some strange goings on of late..my web site monitoring has been email/smsing me far too much recently and I couldn’t figure out why.I thought lnux and apache ould give me a far more stable system than my previous web server.

So this monring I stated a ping test from the XP box to the linux box and I got a no response reply. I then jumped to the linux box, which must have gone into hibernation mode and hit return to wake it up. I then jumped back to the XP box and saw the ping responses come in..

yikes…loads to sort out.. I

yikes…loads to sort out..

I need to figure out what domain I intend to use and then how I’m gonna host it. I then need to sort out the files structure of MT.

And the the virtual hosting name paths to host both the new blog and the other web sites..

Do i host the domain totaly or use somebody else to host it and just redirect?

still so much to do and so much to learn!

one step closer to multiple

one step closer to multiple web hosting..

C:Documents and SettingsRob>arp -a

Interface: 10.0.0.2 — 0x2
Internet Address Physical Address Type
10.0.0.1 00-80-ad-ba-dc-41 dynamic
10.0.0.4 00-04-ac-6e-9e-50 dynamic
10.0.0.5 00-04-ac-6e-9e-50 dynamic

same MAC address different IP address!

I’ve jsut configured an eth0:01 logical interface on the same physical ethernet card.

More linux achievements.. apache is

More linux achievements..

apache is running ok still..and now so id vsftp which allows me to ftp from the XP box to the linux box once I’ve edited the web pages in dreamweaver…cool.

I’ve also started on the PERL programing, so I’ve written my first PERL program..horah!

I’ve used perl in previous lives for web site searches etc, which was always hacking variables within somebody else code to suit your needs.

Gaim, not too much luck here, loaded the correct MSN service and entered the correct user name and password, but it failed on incorrect port? anybody any ideas?…I jumped over to the XP box to see if there was any clues in the app but none. Doh…I forgot to use netstat upon starting MSN to see what it said…I’ll give that another try later.

linux the story so far..

linux the story so far..

linux is on and up and running…apache is going to ..took a while to figure out you had to turn on the service but it works fine now..

I’ve got about 2gb of space to host various web sites so that should be fine.

so finally my various web sites are hosted by apache and running nicely.

I bought a KVM switch is cool, two presses of scroll lock and I can jump between XP and Linux..cool..
