meh, this is going slowly.
First we had the delay of getting a server built. Then once it was built we had a massive segfault, that wasn’t recoverable (no, it wasn’t my fault :P ). Next we reloaded the OS from scratch and started over. Eh…….. waddaya know, another segfault/crash. New server time. I have stressed tested the cpu and ran a bad blocks test on the hard drive, checked the ram configuration, i think we are golden now.
Installed postfix and have a null client running to send mail only. So, we are closer today than yesterday, it ain’t much, but it’s a start………. finally.
All mysql databases have been created, users have been created (yes, independent of each other) and mysql was installed with /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation.
While you can’t really see anything yet………… it IS progressing. Oh, I take it back, apache IS running as is php, there is ONE domain active right now. http://crouse.us , don’t bother going there, you’ll be disappointed, it’s nothing to look at, just a test to make sure that everything is working :) Backup copies of all the configs have been made and a changelog for the server has been kept, so if things have to be rebuilt yet again, it won’t take very long to get back to where I am at this point in time. I must say, I love using Arch as a server, it does EXACTLEY what you tell it to. It’s comforting to know EXACTLEY what’s running and what’s not.
