Fedora 33 > 34 Update Complete

The computer updates have started. The new goal is going to move the current physical instance of my Linux server into a VirtualBox VM that will host everything until I can bring up RHEL on the new server hard drives and have it pick up things like web hosting and email.

More hard drives

So as alluded to in a previous post, I had a drive crash and it left me feeling a bit shaky about the other three drives that are in the array, one more goes and the system is gone. Not thrilled with the thought of that so I blew $320 and got 4 SATA Seagate… Continue reading More hard drives

Crashing drives

Nothing to do with cars but I’ve got a failure on one of the drives that this site is on. It’s got 4 x 3TB SAS Western Digital drives hooked up to a Dell H310 PERC PCI controller in a Dell T30 server. So the T30 doesn’t come with a H310, not sure you can… Continue reading Crashing drives

More Linux Love

So building on the email/imap server success. I’ve finally learned how to host multiple domains on Apache!!! Yes I know I haven’t reinvented the wheel and I’m pretty sure that I would have figured it out had I needed it earlier but still it’s bad ass to be able to do so. That in and… Continue reading More Linux Love

Love me some Linux

So everyone knows that Linux is the ultimate toy for computer geeks, it can do anything, do it well and do it free. It was a little over two years ago I broke down and bought a Dell PowerEdge T30. I know, it’s about as entry level as you can get. 8Gb of RAM and… Continue reading Love me some Linux
