    Update order

    Thanks both for your reply. Lucky we have custombuild to assist us in those matters. I remember doing an update a few years back, and all mail arrived in queue, but wasn't delivered to the mailboxes any further. So I didn't wan't to break it a second time:-) Thanks for your support

    Update order

    Hi all, Just a small question : is there a particular order I need to considerate when it comes to .conf files ? Like, first the .conf files, and second the sevices ?

    It seems many servers suffer problems for exim2 attacks by multiple ip's from the same machine-name "ylmf-pc". Normally originating from DUL/Dynamic addressing ranges, this is a high impact attack, which simply connects to a mail server, issues a HELO/EHLO of ylmf-pc, and then exits the...

    Quota used to work

    Quota used to work fine, but for some reason now it doesn't and I can't get it fixed. [root@server /]# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda 20G 7.6G 12G 40% / tmpfs 2.0G 168K 2.0G 1% /dev/shm /dev/sdb 20G 447M 19G 3% /mnt/backup...

    Domain names on server (about spammers)

    This might be a stupid question but I can't find the answer anywhere : Are MySQL and PHP bound to eachother when it comes to version-upgrades ? For example in extremes (versions don't exist, just used as extreme example): Can a MySQL 9.0 run with a PHP 5.1 ? Or a PHP 7.0 with a MySQL 2.4 ? Or...

    Nginx rollback ?

    I asked this question in the custombuild forum, but since this is a more general question it's perhaps better to put it here: My system (a custombuild centos + nginx as proxy), all up-to-date to latest versions except nginx (version 1.6.1) probably needs to update to nginx 1.8.0 wich is...
