The Icon Bar: News and features: New server up and running
 

New server up and running

Posted by Richard Goodwin on 18:44, 11/10/2001 | ,
 
You're now looking at the new and improved Icon Bar server (Nave).

There are a few problems booting up which I've got to figure out, but all websites should now be available so long as there isn't a power cut for longer than the UPS holds out! :)

Web, mail, FTP and SSH all appear to be working properly now, and I've been going through a number of websites checking that the various features work. There was a library missing for the counters CGI, but that's been fixed. POP3 mail fetching has now been set up, but then I'm the only one not using Neo purely as a mail forwarder. Looks like switching PHP3 to PHP4 has been painless.

Unregistered user Does it still run Mandrake, and is it still at an awful colocation? ;-)

Unregistered user I'm not sure that people dialling in with standard modems will notice much difference, but my PC on the office network is loading even CGI generated pages pretty much instantly.

Unregistered user Okay, I've just noticed the rojo and code vault sites didn't copy across. Oops...

Unregistered user You get what you pay for - and in my case that's free bandwidth :)

Looks like I didn't mess up rojo/code vault, there was nothing there to transfer in the first place.

Unregistered user (BTW, it's not a "cack colocation", it's "hidden away in the office I work at". ArgoNet have some good colocation facilities, but not for free ;)

Unregistered user you know those cute little envelopes that show what you've read? well they're all open now, even when I haven't read the stuff. (Running IE 5.5 on Win 95 cos the A5000 died and the Omega's not here yet)

Unregistered user Fine here; just go back to the forum using the forum link above and it'll reset if you're having problems. There haven't been that many messages today anyway for obvious reasons ;)

Unregistered user Pepperfish is quite pricey if you want all the professional features. Does it come with real-time Contol Panel to adjust email, MySQL, subdomains etc or is that all requested by email?

Unregistered user Michael: We tend to hope that our customers have clue, so we only normally supply ssh accounts and let people tweak their config files themselves. However, there is a web front end for completely configuring your POP boxes and mail forwarders for any domains, and fairly good webmail. We don't actually plan on suppling MySQL unless people actually ask for it, as we prefer PostgreSQL for most things. A complete web-interface to configure everything is planned for people who can't grasp running a website well, or for lazy people ;-) Keep an eye out; it's on the way.

Also, we're open to bartering if you want all the 'professional' features - they do actually cost a bob or two to implement - also note that we pay a fortune for a good connection to the internet, off-site backup etc.
