Dont you just love it when all goes as planned when updating? This time around it was from 2.0.4 to 2.1.2. All modifications & plugins++ seem to be behaving like they did prior to the upgrade.
In other news, main server has made its move from VMware to OpenVZ, we’ll see in a few months time(perhaps even shorter) if OpenVZ will be kept or if Im gonna bring in the “big guns” and migrate the box further to Xen. For now I have the free download of HyperVM monitoring the box. (2 vps in free license)
Still debating if I want a panel or if Im going “barebone” on this server. There is no real need for it, but the ease of maintainence in particular to the other users might be worth the 10$ for a 5 VPS license per month. To be able to control all my servers via one panel is another thing that speaks loudly for keeping HyperVM.
They are working on implementing Solaris Containers & MS Virtual Server, the latter is of no interrest to me, but having one panel controlling my solaris, xen & openvz installs do have a nice ring to it. Any thoughts on the matter? =)
The rest of the VPS’s I have on it Im manually trigging for now;
www1 – gentoo (lighty, php5 & all www services)
smtp1 – gentoo (exim, SA, clamd, fuzzyocr)
dns1 – ubuntu (bind9)
im1 – ubuntu (jabberd2, unrealircd)
im & dns are set into production so far, will spend time during easter to sync up & set the rest in production.
The file-servers Im hoping to merge over time, phase out the older drives in them and get some 500G+ drives in.
For shit & giggles I have setup weather icons so you foreigners can keep track of the situation where I live at the time of the posting. Using a modified cricket-moods plugin for that task.
