Hello,

I didn’t post for a while. But now i have some new stuff. I had some trouble installing ubuntu on a Rootserver ( 1&1 ) where i only had a rescue system available. The only dependency is that the recovery console is a debian based system.

The system was already partitioned and some software raid’s were already available.

Create new swap space:
mkswap /dev/sda2

Reformat md1 with ext3:
mkfs.ext3 /dev/md1

mkdir /ubuntu
mount /dev/md1 /ubuntu

wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/d/debootstrap/debootstrap_1.0.23_all.deb
dpkg –install debootstrap_1.0.23_all.deb

debootstrap –arch amd64 lucid /ubuntu http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu

echo “127.0.0.1 localhost” > /ubuntu/etc/hosts
echo “ilaegir01” > /ubuntu/etc/hostname

vi /etc/network/interfaces

# Used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8). See the interfaces(5) manpage or
# /usr/share/doc/ifupdown/examples for more information.

# The loopback network interface
auto lo

auto eth0

vi /ubuntu/etc/fstab

apt-get update

apt-get install linux-image-server openssh-server grub

cp /proc/mounts /etc/mtab
aptitude install mdadm
mkdir /boot/grub
grub-install /dev/sda
update-grub

aptitude install nano

nano /boot/grub/menu.lst

change following lines:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-21-server root=/dev/md1 ro quiet splash
AND
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-21-server root=/dev/md1 ro single

TO:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-21-server root=/dev/md1 ro quiet splash console=tty0 console=ttyS0,57600
AND
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-21-server root=/dev/md1 ro single console=tty0 console=ttyS0,57600

Be warned to execute update-grub on every kernel security update, then choose the package maintainers version
of menu.lst and add the console again to the kernel parameter!

nano /etc/init/ttyS0.confab

# ttyS0 – getty
#
# This service maintains a getty on ttyS0 from the point the system is
# started until it is shut down again.

start on stopped rc RUNLEVEL=[2345]
stop on runlevel [!2345]

respawn
exec /sbin/getty -L 57600 ttyS0 vt100

passwd

exit

After reboot you should edit the /etc/apt/sources.list and replace it with the wolling content

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

aptitude update
aptitude safe-upgrade

If there is any new kernel added, then execute update-grub after the installation.
Then add the entries fot the console to the menu.lst again.

Sorry, this is just a quick post with only a minimum of explanations, but i hope i am able to help somebody out there.

Today i tried to install ZendServer on my Macbook. The installation of the server is a bit buggy. I had to adjust some settings to get the server work.
It was not possible to open the configuration page on localhost 10081 or 10083 (https). There was some trouble with a missing certificate for lighttpd
I made these changes:

Edit the /etc/profile and added these two lines at the end of the file.
PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/zend/binLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/zend/lib
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/zend/lib

Then i changed the directory to /usr/local/zend/etc/tls/certs and creadted the missing certificate with openssl.
sudo openssl req -new -x509 -keyout server.pem -out lighttpd.pem -days 365 -nodes

To execute apache on port 80 and on localhost only i had to edit apachectl and httpd.conf
nano /usr/local/zend/apache2/conf/httpd.conf
I changed the line
Listen 10088
to
Listen 127.0.0.1:80

nano /usr/local/zend/apache2/bin/apachectl
I changed the line
to
I was now able to start the server with
/usr/local/zend/bin/zendctl.sh start
And to stop i just execute
/usr/local/zend/bin/zendctl.sh stop

Welcome to my new blog.

A few hours ago, i thought about starting a new blog about some technical stuff i am currently working on and interesting informations i found in the web.

I hope you enjoy my future posts and wish you a nice stay on this blog.

I will not post in my native language (german). My personal reason for this is, cause i had many problems in the past to read blogs from bloggers which posted interesting informations about technical stuff, but i was not able to read them, cause they were posting in their native languages like spanish, french etc.

Sorry guys, i am not able to understand any language. But thank you very much for your great informations you are posting.

I wish you all a great weekend and i will be happy if you check my blog for new stuff regularly.

 

Best regards,

Ar0und
