CentOS 5.2 - 64 bits - error while loading shared libraries : libresolv.so.2 : cannot open shared object file

By BXTra |

My server was running great for about a month without reboot. Yesterday, I just thought about what many people said that if a server is running fine, don't try to restart it. If you do, there is a chance that a server won't start back up normally. No one explain why but then, I thought about it and for some reason, I wanted to try to restart it that night. I didn't think I will run into any problem but I was wrong.

Mail.com and Eudora, Have you every heard of it?

By BXTra |

I’m using Mail.com for many years. (At least 10 years.) I have used it since it's free service until they started to charge for money. That’s fine, I'm willing to pay for it just because I like an e-mail that I already have with them.  I also like to have my mail at home. So, I pay them for POP/SMTP service.

Yum install perl-DBD-mysql, perl-DBI to use "mysqlreport" under CentOS 5.2 + DirectAdmin

By BXTra |

mysqlreport makes a friendly report of important MySQL status values. mysqlreport transforms the values from SHOW STATUS into an easy-to-read report that provides an in-depth understanding of how well MySQL is running. mysqlreport is a better alternative (and practically the only alternative) to manually interpreting SHOW STATUS.

When I was trying to use mysqlreport under CentOS 5.2 64 bit + DirectAdmin Custom Build 1.1. I got error when run "./mysqlreport"

Steps how to install Cacti on CentOS 5.2 + DirectAdmin

By BXTra |

First of all, I'm not an Linux/DirectAdmin expert. I just played around with them and found the way to do it. I tried to install Cacti on my server but I couldn't find a complete instruction to do it. So, I just gathered all information I found into one place so that it is easier for many others. I hope it can help someone that needs the same thing that I did.

The software I use:

- CentOS 5.2 - 64-bit
- DirectAdmin 1.323 - Custombuild 1.1.13
     - PHP 5 - CGI
     - Apache 2.2
     - MySQL 5
- Cacti 0.8.7b

DD-WRT v24 SP1 Released

By BXTra |

Two months after the release of the milestone v24 we are happy to give a refined release to the public, v24 SP1. Besides the official support of new hardware platforms and the addition of some new features we did enhance the usability and stability of many functions inside DD-WRT. We did also incorporate the patches for the recently published dns exploit issue. We'd like to make clear that the DD-WRT default configuration in v23 / v24 is not vulnerable, so there was and is no risk for dd-wrt users.
