Hi! I work at Rackspace. I love to help people deploy/use technology, especially that which supports scientific research and studies. Largely speaking, I want to help the world through open source and the freedom of information as well as the follow-on: knowledge.

comment MySQL shutting down without worning, out of memory?
@LeviXC The newer (within the last year) images on Rackspace don't have swap space allocated. You have to set it up if you want this sort of failure to have some temporary mitigation. In reality, it sounds like you need a beefier image.

comment Dropbox crashing CENTOS server
I feel bad for asking about that one there. Wanted to see what your development workflow was like and how you were using dropbox. It's hard for me not to ask "What's holding you back from hosting your clients on separate or bigger VMs?"

comment Dropbox crashing CENTOS server
Is Dropbox the only way you'd like to do backups? Have you tried version control (git) for your code and static assets?

You still have to run the swift cluster yourself too. If this is really small, providing a local cache sounds better.

comment Off-the-shelf solutions for migrating data from azure blobstorage to rackspace cloud files
Also, if you decide to do it via the SDKs I would recommend running it from a server on Azure or Rackspace's side (don't make a clientside tool be an intermediary).

comment how to backup a cloud site on rackspace cloud with code and database
Where do you want your code backed up to? Where is your code located on the server?

comment Use NGINX to present local HTTP server?
And... Just realized you have this alongside all your other configuration options. Are you able to bring your conf down to a small file to try see if something smaller will work before fleshing it out?
