comment Getting regular PHP updates in Ubuntu Lucid
@spankmaster79: I used www.dotdeb.org for a while, but then the last time I tried updating, ran into problems because it seemed Lucid wasn't supported anymore. Can't seem to find the documentation on that change right now, but I vaguely remember reading about it somewhere.

comment Getting regular PHP updates in Ubuntu Lucid
I want to stick with the LTS release so that I only have to worry about migrating customers to another server ever four years or so. However, letting production services like PHP, MySQL, Postgres, etc. lag behind that long just isn't acceptable in my opinion.

comment Anyone seen a helper program to create a changelog for a server?
For clarification, I am already tracking changes to files. I am only looking for info on a changelog "helper" program or script at this point.

comment Anyone seen a helper program to create a changelog for a server?
I already have the infrastructure to track changes to config files. I am looking for a program or script solely for the purpose of facilitating the changelog.

Thanks for the suggestion, however I would prefer for this script to use the user's default editor (just like hg/svn commit) and I wouldn't want the user to have to specify the file.

comment How to keep a pylons web-application server running on windows server 2003
Well, I have never had applications crash, that I am aware of. I have had exceptions, but I trap my exceptions at a high level so they don't make it through to IIS. However, I did have application pools designed to shut-down the application to conserve resources if the application hadn't been used in 20 minutes (this is the default behavior). IIS knows that if a request comes in and there is no application in the application pool, that it needs to start the application. I assume this would work the same if the application crashed.

Thanks for the comment, I think I had ruled out opsview for some reason, but based on your recommendation, I may end up trying it before I jump into nagios proper.

comment What are the pit-falls of using Windows 7 as a web server?
Maybe not exactly, but it points you in the right direction. If the technical limitation in IIS 5.1 (Windows XP) and IIS 7 (Vista) was connection limits, its likely that the IIS 7.5 has similar issues, and would be something specific for you to research.
