Raspis server is down due to power maintenance on site. Sorry for inconvenience. Will update when power comes back up.

Comments have been fixed

Thanks to one fellow user (whose name I will not mention) for informing me that the comment function was broken. This was due to a problem in server configuration which has now been fixed.

I’ve also added an extra captcha field (in form of a simple math expression) to help reduce comment spam because it seems that spambots can easily beat reCaptcha checks.

Farewell to the old server. Long live KVM !

The old virtual server, which ran ddscentral.org (and a number of other sites and services) will be shut down today. Although, it’s just an OpenVZ container running on someone else’s Linux box, it’s still a bit sad for me to shut down a server that I have maintained for nearly 10 years. It was the first ever VPS that I’ve ever maintained.
However, times have changed since and continuing to rent that server at the same price no longer makes economical sense when I can get a KVM with more memory, disk space and (best of all) freedom for less.

KVM offers much more freedom compared to OpenVZ. For example, I have bought a secondary IP for the KVM server and… assigned it to another KVM server which runs on a different machine. How did I do it ? I’ll tell you in the next post.

New server up !

If you can read this, ddscentral.org is now live on a new server !
The old server will be decommissioned on September 1st.

UPDATE: IP changed once again, from test server to main one.

Raspis is offline – possible hardware failure

Raspis is offline, most likely due to a hardware failure. I will need to get to the server physically to fix it, so the server will remain down until tomorrow evening at the very least.
Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

UPDATE: Oct 8th, 20:30 EEST: Back online.
