Another PHP programmer responsible for things like the MicroMVC PHP framework.

You may notice that some of my questions run very deep into the heart of certain issues because I strive for the highest optimization that is possible in my apps.

comment How do you install “extra” versions of backport packages in debian?
Hmmm, that would explain it. I just assumed they existed because the install page lists squeeze as the current repo and sid is where the packages are.

comment Is Postfix the same thing as Sendmail?
I would love to setup Exim if it is noticeably smaller - but there just isn't that much out there on it unless you already know what your doing.

comment Is Postfix the same thing as Sendmail?
Ok, so I can use most things that talk about requiring "sendmail" even though I have postfix setup because postfix has a mock-sendmail frontend script that handles everything. So my apps will never know it's not sendmail they are talking with.

comment Nginx - Change root directory based on server_name?
hmmm... I guess that is the answer - but I have nginx 0.7.65 and that requires at least 0.8.25.

comment What are recommended SSH key settings?
What do you mean "Data encrypted ... with other key". Are you talking about creating two key pairs? One for login - and the other for data transfer? If so, how would you do that? I though that SSH just used one key. I don't think I need SSH 1.0 for anything so should I use 2048 DSA?

comment How to remove all Couchdb versions in Ubuntu 10.04 (server)? ( after multiple installs )
Is the number just reported incorrectly? I removed my 1.0.1 version but I can't seem to find (or stop) the 0.10.0 version.

comment Managing a shared SSH key?
I'm not quite understanding how that works. So would I have the private key on some server and then run that from each client OS I use to download the private key?

comment Managing a shared SSH key?
I don't use KDE or Gentoo. However, it seems that on OS X and linux I need to ssh-add before I start any SSH sessions and then on windows I need to start pageant so that putty uses the key that pageant has loaded.

comment Specify SSH Port for Git
fyi, if the server has a "bare" repo then the connection string would look more like ssh://git@github.com:22/asdf/asdf (without the .git)

comment Why should www.domain and mail.domain be used?
Thanks, can you explain more about multiple server spanning?

comment Postfix server configuration values explained?
Thank you very much! I'll look around for more postfix documentation files. So as long as the /etc/hostname is set to the domain name (i.e. example.com) then I can just leave mydomain and myhostname blank?

comment Why do some servers have so many processes running?
@Zoredache thanks, I didn't catch the cache/buffers thing the first time but 22MB is a lot better sounding than 90MB. And I am sure they are both 32bit Debian 5 installs.

comment Why do some servers have so many processes running?
@Zoredache the list does seem incomplete compared to the other one. I updated the links with the output of free. Both lists are output from users in sudo su.

comment Memory usage of php-cgi processes is growing steadily
Use Nginx as it is smaller than both servers and has no memory leaks from PHP. Wordpress and other large sites use it.

comment Recursively archive small files in document tree on linux?
Awesome, next thing I knew I had a 100MB backup of text files sitting there.

comment Recursively archive small files in document tree on linux?
@DerfK Apparently I am hitting the limit because the tgz file is stopping at about 9MB of files (about 3% of the sub 100kb files I was backing up). Perhaps what I need is a sh script that can add files one at a time to avoid the arg limit. Or I could save the output of find to a text file and read that to tar.

comment Recursively archive small files in document tree on linux?
Both work, (using lain's modifications) so which would be better/faster on large directories?

comment Nginx block access to PHP files
That was just what I needed. However, since I'm using Debian I had to install the backports nginx package to get nginx 7 which is required for "try_files". Also, I changed that last location to location ^~ /index.php and it worked.

comment Changing Debian Package Sources
backports.debian.org was just want I wanted. Added a single line to sources.list and installed what I needed.
