    Restarting Exim also restart spamd?

    I added some rule files to spamassassin and went to restart it but it seems there is no service file for it because all I get is "unrecognized service" when I issue /sbin/service spamd restart (or spamassassin restart). going to the binary does not seem to have that ability either. So either I...

    Plesk makes me appreciate DA

    I have a client that needed another server and the guy managing the site going on the server was used to Plesk so they requested I install it. It is pretty from a user standpoint though missing some features you would think would be there (like sub-ftp accounts). But from a management...

    Off site email server and domain aliases

    I have a site that uses their own email server so I configured the account to use an off site email server. My question is how does DA handle domain aliases in this case?

    Upgrading perl on CentOS 4.3

    So perl is in the recommended yum exclude list for centOS and custom apache does not update it. So what is the recommended process for updating perl on a DA server running CentOS 4.3? Does DA modify the defaults so you can not use yum anymore or something?

    Who is using the RC1?

    I am running beta 8 at the moment and have not noticed any issues. There is quite a list of fixes between beta 9 and RC1 from beta 8 so I am thinking it might be a good idea to update. Has anyone running the RC1 noticed any issues after updating?

    Anyine use 1&1 for domains

    Registerfly is driving me nuts and I do not like the Godaddy interface. In general I don't really like 1&1, but in all honesty I have never used anything from them. They just bug me for some reason :) Their domain prices are cheap so I thought I would see if anyone here uses them for domain...

    Full system backup question

    When configuring a full system backup under admin user it is a little unclear to me if the directories you can select at the bottom are part of the default of the full system backup at the top. In other words if in the area where you select the path for the backup you select everything in that...
