I have small linux server under my desk at home that has been chugging away for the past 3 years with nary a peep. Two weeks ago when I entered my office I was presented with the distinct smell of something burning. The smell was emanating from from ole’ trusty. I never realized how much I depended on this little machine until it stopped. No more OpenDNS updates to keep the kiddies safe on the internet, no more dynamic IP updates, no more backups, no more proxy server (for those ‘special’ occasions), no more playing Gearhead at work! I felt like I had lost a close friend, or at least a favorite pet.
Now, three weeks later, a new power supply, RAM, and a mess of case fans, RobbinsWeb lives again. *sigh…welcome back buddy
If you are running Ubuntu 10.01 and you get the error message “can’t bind to port: :: 80 Address already in use” when you try to start up, check your config file and comment out the line that has ‘ include_shell “/usr/share/lighttpd/use-ipv6.pl” ‘
Just some advice from my wanderings.
