So today, I was helping someone with a multi-site WordPress issue, and I linked to my blog. But guess what? It wasn’t coming up! All my external tests seemed to work, including Down for Everyone or Just Me, and even Cloudflare! I could still SSH into my server (as I was watching log files scroll by anyways!), so I knew it was up and accessible. So, what’s next?
Setting up Exim 4 is relatively easy on Debian, especially if you’re only sending mail to yourself (i.e. Server messages, Forget Password requests, etc). Because I have home-level Internet service from my Canadian ISP, I can’t host mail directly on this box - but I also don’t want to rely on Shaw’s mail servers if I ever change service later on in life.
Welcome back to Talk About IT! We had a bit of a mishap, so all the previous content is gone. Backup, backup backup! Luckily, all the customer data has been recovered, with no loss. The server has been reconfigured, with a proper RAID setup, and off-site backups. It is going to make things a lot easier to recover, hopefully! Once the extra computers I’ve ordered have arrived, I’ll work on setting up haproxy and getting some clustering going.
