Randomly at work, we started getting emails from one of our routers that the "Data Disk" was almost full. This is the first time anyone on the team has experienced this issue. After fumbling through the settings and options on the network appliance I realized we would most likely need to connect via SSH to troubleshoot it. One of my co-workers wasn't familiar with this or generating SSH Keys. So, I decided to write a quick post about it and the overall resolution.
It's been awhile since I have been able to update this mainly due to taking part in an intensive coding bootcamp focused on full stack web development. As always I am constantly trying to improve myself and I thought this course would be the next step in the Randy saga! While doing this I couldn't partake in any fun personal projects but I did note a few tricky problems I ran into at work and the following is one of them!
Company websites and emails are very important in this era. A high quality website and domain based email gives a company a more professional look. In order to get more legitimate side work I manufactured a side company and created a web presence for it! As this side work company wouldn't generate lots of income, I created the quickest and most budget friendly web presence. The following is my little guide to setting this all up! Continue Reading
Similar to a recent post, one of the servers I manage was getting the "Error connecting to database" message at the website it hosted. When I logged in it was slow to respond. After some initial troubleshooting I determined it's hard drive was full. The following is my experience learning to troubleshoot a Debian server out of disk space. Continue Reading
As my knowledge in deploying Linux servers grew so did my confidence. This confidence saw me offering to setup webservers for others. In this particular case I had built out a server for my fiance, who wanted to run a blog and store for her crafts. A few months into it being setup and running well she ran into problems where her website would be extremely slow Continue Reading
A while back, I was in charge of setting up a new Allworx 6x at our small Netherlands office. Our department ordered the 6x and I did as much configuration as possible. I configured the outside lines, auto attendants and dial plans. Once it was ready we shipped it overseas and waited for them to receive it. This is my struggle of learning about Netherlands phone numbers and NANPA. Continue Reading
In my last post I covered the basic installation and deployment of LAMP. Once that has been done the server will be ready to configure virtual hosts. This will allow the Linux server in question to run several websites simultaneously. There are numerous ways to achieve this but I prefer name based virtual hosts. Here is my experience, troubles and outline for configuring virtual hosts on a Debian server. Continue Reading
Learning Linux webserver deployment has been a great experience. I should have started my blog with this post because building a webserver using LAMP made my website possible! I originally took this project on to quench my thirst for learning new things. After building and rebuilding hosted virtual webservers for myself and others, Continue Reading
A few months ago I was looking at doing a new project that would again give me more soldering experience. After milling around with different options I found making a DIY Amp and Speaker the most satisfying option for my lifestyle Continue Reading
As most tech's know, Time is important to be synced across all servers and workstations on a network. After working many years in the field, you find incorrect server time can cause major issues. Queue my problem! My company recently added a new office in Brazil that needed servers here. So, we blew up a VM Continue Reading
