Filesystem Helpers

Apr 22, 2005 | by Christopher Aker

New feature in the LPM: Filesystem Helpers [b]What is it?[/b] Currently, the only helper that’s been implemented is “Disable updatedb”, which disables any cron jobs that run the updatedb command.

HTTP-Retrievable Linode Stats (in XML)

Mar 16, 2005 | by Christopher Aker

The http request must come from one of the IPs of [linodeUsername]. There is no access control other than this. If that’s an issue, let me know. Example […]


CentOS 4.0 now available

Mar 14, 2005 | by Christopher Aker

CentOS 4.0 now available through the Distro Wizard. [img][/img] “udev” is installed, but won’t run on startup.

I also disabled bdb in /etc/my.cnf, which is needed since it […]

Linode Wiki

Jan 3, 2005 | by Christopher Aker

Hello, I’ve had a few requests about a user-managed Wiki for Linode, so here it is: The Linode Wiki is still in its infancy right now, but I’m hoping with your contributions it will become a good resource for Linode users and possibly take the place of the dated FAQ off the Support page. […]
