Vijedi is a disaster

Posted by Tejus Parikh on June 12, 2007

It might not look it on the surface, but vijedi.net is a disaster. It’s come a long way from the days it was hosted on a abandoned Dell with 48 MB of RAM and a PII-233 processor. I’ve got a blog, a photo gallery, virtual hosts, source repositories, and until 2 days ago, email services all running on this box. Which is fine. Unless you have 18GB of storage. Right no, Vijedi.net needs 70GB, most of this resides on an external USB drive sitting on top of the server box. Adding to the infrastructure WTF, is that I wanted to do more with the box, and Patrick Vokerding, doesn’t publish Slackware releases often enough. Therefore, I have a bunch of core web-libraries compiled from source. Which makes them very hard to upgrade. Also, since I ran out of disk space, there all in very strange locations, which makes it hard, well to do anything at all really.

Most of the reason I haven’t fixed any of this in the last year is that vijedi.net is our primary mail box. However, since we’ve migrated all of that off onto a Zimbra install, I’ve finally got the time to take the whole thing down for a while and get it sorted out. Which is what I’m going to do. This is the last vijedi.net blog post for a while (not that I post that often anyway). I’m not sure how long it will take, there’s a ton of stuff to backup, restore and reconfigured. But itll be sane this time. Which of course, will make me very happy.

Later all, and see you in a few weeks!
