Apparently we had a power failure today that my UPS wasn’t quick enough to take over for.
Everything is back up and running.
One database was corrupted but we were able restore it from this morning’s backup.
Backups will be more frequent during storm season.
Ok, here is another one that was specifically geared to my setup, but I thought it may help someone else out in a pinch. I lost the motherboard for my web/email server due to that “capacitor problem”. What follows is how I got everything back up and functional. The server consisted of Apache and qmail, plus various other odds and ends. Another item to note is that this is a FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE system, linux admins change settings accordingly.
First, I get the basics on there so I have network connectivity and the tools I use to make everything go smoothly, not to mention there are some security issues involved.
