Zabbix update-rc.d LSB tags and led_blink loop - on B3

One of my businesses is website hosting for small businesses such as freelancers , and I want to monitor both my own servers and my clients. Enter my trusty B3. I thought I'd give Zabbix a try as it is fully free and open source and supports Debian. Following the zabbix wiki instructions for install...

Re: FTP not working anymore

would MasqueradeAddress help? http://www.proftpd.org/docs/howto/NAT.html Thanks Ubi for the suggestion. For me the /etc/hosts fix is adequate as my IP only changes if I reboot the modem which is very rare. My interest is in trying to identify the cause, as my b3 is very standard (hardly anything ad...

Re: FTP not working anymore

Re: FTP not working anymore

Just bouncing some ideas around; Maybe this is a regression (or similar but unrelated bug) to this one - http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2288&hilit=+%2Fetc%2Fhosts Might be worth the people with this problem to give us the output of /etc/hosts Looks like a 'no'.

Re: FTP not working anymore

Hi Cheeseboy,

I have the same errors and worked around it by hard-coding my (dynamically obtained) IP in /etc/hosts

My b3 is connected to a cable internet modem and is server-firewall-router. Latest software. 2T+2T storage RAID array.

Re: FTP not working anymore

So your FTP server is not running, therefore filezilla wont connect nor will any other activities that rely on this service function. Problem seems to be that proftpd cannot figure out what your ip address is because the default machine name does not have a proper reverse DNS lookup (as is expected...

Re: New version of BubbaMon, the firefox extension

Should this work with b3 - it says it can't find compatible server at http://b3 but that's where I find it.

Re: Copying between B2 & B3

Ok, sorted. Perhaps this is one for the Wiki? Transferring files from Bubba|2 to B3. Here is my experience. Configured B2 network to a fixed IP (192.168.10.49). Connected cable between B3 LAN and B2 LAN. Windows laptop connected to B3's WiFi. Windows laptop has PuTTY installed for SSH. From laptop I...

Re: Copying between B2 & B3

Howdy, In short (and probably simplified): I changed the configuration on my Bubba2 from being a router etc, to just a server, removed the internet from it's WAN port and plugged it into the B3 instead, which I then configured to be the router. Then I plugged both machines' LAN port into the same s...

Re: Copying between B2 & B3

How did you guys connect the two and execute the operations? Did you just connect the LAN ports together SSH to b3 over WiFi? Is there any need to configure B2 to stop IP address clashes, fighting over DHCP provision or other hackery? Do you just address the machines as bubba and b3 in your rsync co...

Anyone tried this, or had a look to see how feasible it is on an excito box? Looks like it might be tricky. Shame.

Re: apt-get install errors (for php5-sqlite) - b3 v2.2 bug?

Thanks Ubi. Its reassuring to hear that the server name issue is probably ok. I thought that might be so. I think the line: Reloading web server config: apache2apache2: apr_sockaddr_info_get() failed for b3 may indicate a failure in the installation (perhaps as a result of the preceding one about in...

apt-get install errors (for php5-sqlite) - b3 v2.2 bug?

I have some errors during an apt-get and wonder if they are b3 v2.2 bugs. I had earlier re-imaged b3 to v2.2 and tried "apt-get install php5-sqlite" without success which I decided was probably because I was going ahead before the b3 repositories were in place. So, just now (having seen the v2.2 rel...

Re: Question about php-sqlite and ARM Debian packages in gen

Thanks Tor, I was warned not to run the upgrade after re-imaging and have not done this. I shall take it that I should also not try installing any packages, and that this is probably why I can't install php5-sqlite. I was advised to try v2.2 because of a separate issue (failure of B3's RAID recovery...

Re: Question about php-sqlite and ARM Debian packages in gen

Thanks Daniel for persevering (and I'm not being ungrateful here I assure you!) but your answers weren't full or clear to me. As I said earlier, I have already tried the command that you say works for you. I've redone it again to make sure and I get the same result (as included in my initial post). ...
