I was using a HP dc7900 Core 2 Duo w/ 8GB RAM, a 2 port Intel NIC, a HP P410 RAID Card & 2 500GB HDDs to run a small ESXi host to run my UniFi controller, my Plex Media Server & my home automation server. It died on me last night so now I have to move everything elsewhere. My UniFi controller is going back onto a Raspberry Pi 2, the home automation server onto a Raspberry Pi 3 with Hassbian and then Plex Media Server back onto our desktop. Not to happy about this, but hopefully at some point in the server I can come up with the money to get a Core i5 system so I can run everything on one box. Just frustrating because I had just set it up
My web server sending people to the wrong domain seems to only occur at home. I have no clue what is causing it but it is rather frustrating
I couldn’t get VestaCP to work properly with Nextcloud so I am back to Virtualmin. Problem is, some domains don’t end up going to the correct site although they not do this in all browsers.
I have decided to switch from Virtualmin back to VestaCP for managing my site. There was nothing wrong with Virtualmin from a technical standpoint, just a couple of issues I hated working around (adding a smccloud.com subdomain was the main one). Although I do lose IPv6 support until March, I doubt many people will even notice that.
Well, I was reading a news article today about how Charter/Spectrum is telling the FTC that Title II is making it so they don’t invest in their network but they are telling investors that it isn’t causing any issues. Also had a link in the article saying that every user on their 60Mbps tier will be upgraded to 100Mbps, the problem I have with this is they are not increasing the upload speed. Still a crappy 5Mbps, its taking me forever to complete my first backup with CrashPlan Small Business due to this.
I have been playing around with creating Docker containers. I’ve created two so far. One to mine Monero (XMR) with a CPU where everything is automatically set and the other is to run a full Monero Node. It can be difficult to create the container, but it is actually fun too. Maybe I will create more in the future.
I really hate web pages that have a Java web app on them. Especially since the days of being able to run them are going to be going away shortly. Currently, Firefox ESR 52 32-bit allows you to run them, but once they move the ESR to the next version the ability to run them goes away. HTML5 pages are much better, to bad legacy network gear (I’m looking at you old HP ProCurve at work) will never be updated……
Well, port forwarding in RouterOS is way different then any other router I’ve used so far. Tonight I’m hoping I have enough time to figure out what I did wrong so I can get the ports I need to forward forwarded out.
