  1. [ubuntu] Re: resized LVM smaller and not VM wont boot

    I don't think I can add to anything that has already been said to try and revive the system.

    But I can reassure you that expanding a file system is MUCH safer than ever contracting it. With that...
  2. Re: Hetzner packet loss / Ubuntu network configuration

    If you have something that requires "no packet fragmentation" and the path between source and destination have different MTU sizes, that could cause significant slowdown in bandwidth.

  3. [server] Re: Compare copied files between server and NAS

    I'm with TheFu on this one. rsync can do the copy for you AND give you a verification report once the job is done so you can have peace of mind that it "actually" finished the entire task. Another...

    Re: Boot Ubuntu with monitor or headless

    Maybe you should clarify exactly what you mean by "ubuntu" because that is NOT how Ubuntu server works.

    I have not installed Ubuntu Desktop (ubuntu-18.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso) but one time on a...

    [server] Re: Scheduling Weekly Reboots

    For the OS, you need to reboot at least monthly for the kernel updates. Some applications require rebooting to clear memory leaks...sometimes daily (e.g. Minecraft server). Or maybe the application...
  6. Re: Apache - Allow Certbot Renewal on IP Limited Subdomain?

    Everything I mentioned could be automated.

    However, the DNS method would probably require hosting your own DNS server.

    [server] Re: Scheduling Weekly Reboots

    Yes that looks correct for the time you want to issue the command.

    However, I would be careful about issuing that command. Some services will shutdown gracefully with the shutdown of the...

    Re: Postfix compromised

    Well, I was confused about your question. I assumed you were talking about trying to salvage the compromised files from the old server. What were you talking about when you asked "pass data from...
  9. Re: Trying to feed a decryption passphrase to a Ubuntu 18.04 VM during bootup

    If you are requiring a passphrase during bootup, then it sounds like you want to ensure the data is safe at rest (e.g. someone steals the hardware).

    So if you have a USB stick plugged in it while...

    Re: Postfix compromised

    He showed you the basic solution which is a bash script. You just adapt the command how you would do them for each sites folder.

    Since there are repetitive tasks, I would put the tasks into a...
  11. Re: Apache - Allow Certbot Renewal on IP Limited Subdomain?

    There are several ways to skin that cat.

    You could find out the IPs used by Certbot and add them to the exception list.
    You could instead use DNS validation instead of HTTP.
    You could setup...

    Re: Postfix compromised

    When you do re-install, don't setup the server the exact same way you did before...or it will happen again.

    If done right, not even wordpress can update itself. I use two accounts for wordpress. ...

    [SOLVED] Re: HTTPS on Ubuntu Apache2

    I've documented on particular method of using Let's Encrypt if your web server is accessible from the Internet and how to schedule renewals. This is for Ubuntu Server 18.04 and uses the systemd...

  15. [SOLVED] Re: I've been advised to "upgrade" from Ubuntu 18.10 to 18.04.3 LTS

    I don't know how other admins upgrade their systems but for me, I NEVER do an in-place upgrade. The in-place upgrades are for upgrading the OS and ensuring the OS will have minimal upgrade...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: I've been advised to "upgrade" from Ubuntu 18.10 to 18.04.3 LTS

    Not much to add other than I also agree that production servers should be using the LTS versions only.

    If I were you, I would start migrating the sites to an 18.04 LTS server. That obviously...
  17. Re: Samba or ?? (Switching from Windows to Ubuntu, incl. Active Directory)

    Well, I'm not going to speculate how most mom-n-pop shops have them installed.

    Even if you have one server, a hypervisor might be able to be installed and thus multiple, separate virtual machines...
  18. Re: Samba or ?? (Switching from Windows to Ubuntu, incl. Active Directory)

    I think those systems are all-in-one in terms of a single ISO image containing all the bits. When deploying, I think you deploy the base OS and install the package you want...so you could setup a...
  19. Re: Backup Server With Versioning or Snapshots help

    I'll tell you what I did for my Minecraft server when I was running one (was a hub of 12 servers acting as one actually)

    My backup integrated with the game via console commands. I would push...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: What to look/check for when moving PHP 5.3/4 from Ubuntu 10.04 to Ubuntu 16.04?

    I get what you are saying soscopyrights, I just don't think you will find anything that will apply. It sounds like you have a custom app which means nobody out there is going to have a list of steps...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: What to look/check for when moving PHP 5.3/4 from Ubuntu 10.04 to Ubuntu 16.04?

    What I said are some basic concepts. You are going to be hard-pressed to find any documentation out there on taking a PHP application from Ubuntu 10.04 (skipping 12.04, 14.04) and going straight to...

    [server] Re: Ubuntu filesystem goes read-only

    Oh! So Windows wants to do a reboot to apply patches but does not shutdown the VMs before doing so...thus pulling the carpet out from under their feet and not letting them shutdown properly.

  23. [SOLVED] Re: What to look/check for when moving PHP 5.3/4 from Ubuntu 10.04 to Ubuntu 16.04?

    That is exactly what I would do (but copy...not move).

    I would get a working copy of Ubuntu Server 16.04 running in a virtual machine (I use VirtualBox on my Windows PC) and then install Apache...
  24. Re: LDAP: No version information available

    Crontab does not have a path environment so if any command issued uses a relative path, it will likely not work.

    To test if this is the issue, add this command to the top of your script and see if...

    Re: No wget, really?

    I agree with TheFu, sounds like a PATH issue.


    echo $PATH
    /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games

    The above is the default path for Ubuntu...
