  1. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    I'll give it a try. One thing I am not sure about is how people ask questions about the wiki. For example if some of the folks here were having trouble with something I wrote (like they have) where...
  2. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    By the way to everyone who has questions. If for some reason this forum does disappear and you still need questions answered, feel free to send me a pm. You can even send me one if you post a...
  3. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Hey Philliesfan251,

    So it looks like you got it working, right?
  4. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Thanks!



    What happens if you type the following on a command line?


    which mail
  5. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    My pleasure. I can get really wordy sometimes but I'm glad that that style works for you.

    As I mentioned above, if you want to hang on to this tutorial you should consider copying it to your...
  6. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Showed this to my wife. She agrees :)

    Thank you!
  7. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Thank you! I'm glad I could help. I get so much help from other people posting their guides on the internet it makes me glad I can give back a little.

    That said, you should probably copy the...
  8. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

    I *think* that what is happening is that you have mdadm running already as a daemon (i.e. it is running automatically when you start your server) and so...
  9. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    My pleasure.

    I think the security measures I indicated here would have to be expanded so that your different services (Apache, MySQL and PHP) can get through the firewall.

    I am not...
  10. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    I'm not sure if there are any similar guides out there for 12.04. But that said, I suspect nearly everything here would still apply to 12.04. The only part that may be easier on the new system is...
  11. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Hey everybody, sorry for disappearing like that again. Looks like this thread is in danger of disappearing sometime soon. I guess the whole tips and tricks forum is going away. Makes me sad, but...
  12. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    No worries on the script stuff being foreign. Eventually it will make sense if you keep hammering on it. That said, there really isn't a need to learn it either.

    Try the following code. Save it...
  13. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Happy new year!

    Glad things are starting to settle down.

    The permission errors you are getting are, I think, because you are running mdadm directly (and not using the sudo command to run it as...
  14. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Thanks!
  15. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Hey there, sorry for dropping off like that.

    As far as I can tell, the original error you had is a new bug that was introduced in Ubuntu 12.04. Since I am still on the older version, I can't...
  16. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Whoops. Total reading comprehension fail on my part.


    Try running the following command (I had an extra parenthesis at the end):


    /usr/sbin/hddtemp /dev/sda | sed 's/\(.*\)://g' | awk -F...
  17. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    re: Line 2
    Cool trick


    Did you try running the command by itself?


    /usr/sbin/hddtemp /dev/sda | sed 's/\(.*\)://g' | awk -F '�' '{ print $1}')

    That will spit back exactly what line 10...
  18. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Ok, well at least line 11 is short enough that we can see it all.

    Do you see where your script differs from mine in the line above? Line 10? The awk statement has a different mix of characters...
  19. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Try modifying your command to add the following flag:

    --no-sharing


    So the command becomes:
    sudo mdadm --monitor --scan --no-sharing
  20. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    One other question, how many disks do you have in your array? What are they named? For example, in my case I have 4 (actually, five if you include the one that holds the OS). The four that are...
  21. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    CharlesA might have the answer there, though I don't know how that would happen.

    Could you post your script here?

    How are you creating it (for example, are you using a gui text editing app to...
  22. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    glad that worked for you. I'll have to go back and check to see why the original version didn't work for you. I suspect that your scripts were owned by you, but on my rig I must have had the...
  23. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Hey incindre,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I really only have time on the weekends now to look into this stuff (work and volunteering is getting out of hand).

    I'm glad you...
  24. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    I'll look into squid. I never heard of it before now so it might take some time to figure it out (and time is one of those things I am perpetually short on).

    My primary goal with this setup was...
  25. Re: Step by step guide to setting up Ubuntu 11.10 server for Newbies!

    Thanks! I got one of the good ones myself. Couldn't be happier.
