Net Neutrality – What is it about?

There’s been more talk lately about net neutrality. In large part due to the neutrality day thing… Many people are (rightfully) confused. There’s good arguments on both sides. I’m very much for net neutrality and having sensible regulation to make all players play fair. I’ll go into why, what the past looked like, what’s going […]

Our TTLs are lowered, databases backed up…

Files-a-copying, zones-a-serialized! YARRR we’re on the move! </pirate> Ahem…*cough* ūüôā Now that that’s out of my system. I made a decision at the beginning of this month to move all of my hosting to an Amazon EC2 instance. While nowhere near ideal for web hosting and not really much cheaper than my current hosting arrangements, […]

TLS-SNI, bless you, need a tissue?

OK so if you try to pronounce it incorrectly people might think you have a cold. ¬†The good news is though that Server Name Identification AKA TLS-SNI will likely be making it into Debian Lenny. ¬†It’s already in Apache 2.2.x upstream but there’s no release with it quite yet. ¬† Now we can do SSL […]

suPHP you!

An interesting default change, coupled with a goof on our part caused suPHP to stop working on one of our customer’s servers. ¬†They removed the hardcoded handler – x-httpd-php, in favor of a suPHP_AddHandler directive. ¬†Compound failure on our part though, we removed the suphp.conf file. ¬†So if you’re upgrading from Debian 3.X to 4.0 […]
