comment Wordpress Installation on Two Servers - Loadbalancing
I would advise against using a plugin that hasn't been updated since 2009 - it's unmaintained and you may regret it in the future (S3 changes, security, etc).

GlusterFS is a fascinating suggestion - thank you for that. I'm exploring that as a solution to my Wordpress scaling of static stuff.

Btw, a much better option for this is described here: codex.wordpress.org/Administration_Over_SSL. Just enable define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true); in the config.

An equally good idea would be to just secure the same dir with an htpassword.

Same here - never even realized my wp-admin is not https.

Warren, that's an entirely different question.

comment A monitoring tool that captures processes' memory usage/cpu usage, etc over time
Ah, I forgot to mention the little part where I'd prefer it to be free, and open source, if possible. Over $100 per server is not really what I'm looking to spend (and I only have 1 server, not 5). serverdensity.com/pricing

comment A monitoring tool that captures processes' memory usage/cpu usage, etc over time
I already clarified it in the post but to clarify again: I want to know the state of the system when it goes down due to swap death. I want to know who the worst offenders are. And btw, it doesn't have to be a memory leak - just an influx of traffic, or whatever causes high memory usage. So, again, no advance knowledge of binary names should be configured.

Clarification: Process names are not and should not be known in advance - the idea is to just let it monitor and then have a look at the top offenders.

I'd like a ready solution for reporting the things I mentioned, most importantly processes consuming the most memory. I'm also not sure what VZ is.

atop doesn't seem to have a report that would provide me with what I wanted. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Does it do it with a plugin. If so, which one? I haven't been able to find one that doesn't require a pre-configured list of processes to monitor.

comment How to use my aliases in my crontab?
Keith, I had the same issue but doing eval 'foo' in crontab did the trick.

Here's an example of a bash function: x () { xmllint -format $* ;}

As I mentioned, foo can be a custom alias or a bash function, not just a simple call to a binary.

romandas - yes, I'm mounting remote samba mounts using a dynamic ssh tunnel (established via putty, SecureCRT, or whatever you want).
