Today’s round of downtime

By Jacques Chester

It seems I managed to enjoy the benefits of an obscure bug in our web serving software. I’ve applied the workaround, which should — excuse me while I grimace — prevent it from happening again.

Update: I’m also installed monit, a tool which watches the server to ensure everything is still running and OK. I’ve looked at it a few times and always worried that it would take a bunch of configuring to get going.

It turns out to be pretty simple actually — the only gotcha is to ensure you doublecheck the location of programs in the file system, as it tends to vary from distro to distro. I reckon I’ll probably install it on the Club Troppo server too.
