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
By request of satyap, I’ve extended the [url=http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=776]bw-xml script [/url]to include more data. [code]http://www.linode.com/members/bw/?user=[linodeUsername] http://www.linode.com/members/info/?user=[linodeUsername][/code] Since this is XML, the old /bw/ URL returns the identical data. 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]http://linode.com/images/logos/centoslogo-64.png[/img] “udev” is installed, but won’t run on startup. To enable (if you know what you’re doing), grep for “udev” in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit and uncomment the line. It’s likely that this package can just be removed completely. 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: http://www.linode.com/wiki/ 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.
