zitstif.no-ip.org is back up!

by on Jun.06, 2010, under Code, Posts

After having some down time, which started on May 29th, I scrambled around to find a quick solution to the problem.

The problem came to light after noticing a few nights prior to May 29th, that my web server was not responding correctly and I could not log into it what so ever.

So, ergo I had to actually get on my server (physically) and noticed a bunch of read errors, and the first thought that came to mind was “Bad hard drive!”.

With that in mind, I backed up my server contents as needed and booted my server off of a usb drive which contained a live Linux distro and used:

python -m SimpleHTTPServer 80

to host a simple page displaying what had happened.

At a later time I then realized that I had a spare 10 GB hard drive in my basement and that is what the server is currently running on. Hopefully it lasts for quite some time…

My goal with my server is to: top out the specs for it (max out the memory, and hard drive capacity) and have some virtual hosts on it.

For those of you who are fans (I sincerely doubt there are any, but I can hope!), zitstif.no-ip.org is back up!
