Re: How to fix corrupt primary GPT table?

Do I really need to take out the disk of my B3 and put it in a system with more advanced disk/partitioning tools to address this issue?
I'm afraid in my experience the answer is "yes"...

EDIT:
Minor spelling mistake.

Re: B3 extremely slow, even after reinstall - hardware failu

Hi rxmd, This is a complete wild stab in the dark and might (and probably is unrelated to your problem), but here goes: I have on several occasions noticed a severe performance on the most simplest commands on various Linux machines. On those occasions it turned out to be related to name resolution;...

Re: Release notes for Excito Bubba 2&3 software version 2.6.

Quick question: Am I the only one finding myself without a /home/web/ directory after this upgrade? Or was it the work of marauders? If it was the intentional work of the patch (which I could understand), would it not have been nice to warn people before removing the contents? If you release a patch...

Re: error updating B2: tor-geoipdb

Hi guys, I see the same on my B2. It is because there is a newer version of this package in the powerpc repositories: root@b2:/etc# apt-cache policy tor-geoipdb tor-geoipdb: Installed: 0.2.2.35-1~squeeze+1+nmu1 Candidate: 0.2.3.25-1~bpo60+1 Version table: 0.2.3.25-1~bpo60+1 0 999 http://b3.update.ex...

Re: I have been attacked and don't know why.

Hi samards, When they brought the B2 code-line somewhat in-line with the B3 one, they had to do it in a manual install release (2.4.1). So, in order to get your B2 up-to-date, you have to re-install it using an USB stick. There is no web install. See: http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=375...

Re: I have been attacked and don't know why.

By "patch" did you mean the 2.6 update? Check in the web interface, it should say: 2.6.0.1 http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4654 Yes, someone is looking for a poorly configured wordpress installation.

Re: I have been attacked and don't know why.

There is actually a noticeable change of the number of ssh attacks when I get a new dynamic IP address fro my ISP. Some times the new address brings with it a flood of attacks, sometimes they simply seem to stop with the new address. These attacks don't seem to vary in the same way, making me think ...

I've also noticed a lot more of these. And yesterday there where two defunct instances of php5.orig started by www-data... (I created a cron job to watch for processes owned by this user). I used to send abuse reports too, mainly for ssh attacks (rarely got replies either), until after one such repo...

Re: SSL FTP and VPN help pleeeeease!

Hi Hammer, Regarding the VPN part of your question: Do you really want a permanent connection through OpenVPN for all your traffic through the B3? I used my old B2 for such a setup for a while. The toll on the CPU because of encryption/decryption made it useless (100/100 Mbps reduced to something li...

Re: Migrate from a Bubba (B1) to a B3

Hi Jocke, I've done this twice (from Bubba Server to B2, then from B2 to B3). I think I have just used rsync every time to sync /home to the new machine. I set up a cron job to resync all the user directories (except admin!) every night whilst I re-implemented all the changes I had made to the previ...

Re: B3 heating even if not ON.

@cheeseboy: having a device use tellstick to turn itself on is of course paradoxical. This will require a second computer that needs to be on to trigger the switch. Essentially this is no different from Wake-on-LAN, which also requires a different computer to send the wake signal. I very much agree...
