Generic sysadmin. Hack coder. Jack of all trades, master of some.


Please Note:

I expect you to read any reference material I link to in my answers. If the answer to your question is contained in said reference material and the reference source is not likely to disappear I will probably not cut and paste it onto SF unless it's really cool/interesting/obscure.
In return I promise not to link anyone to goatse or tubgirl

I expect you to think for yourself and do a little thinking (and mayhaps even some work) to solve your problems. If you aren't capable of this, please exit the profession via the door on your left.
In return I promise to do my best to aim you in the right direction, and to clarify any points you have trouble with

comment Sharing HTTP session data in Passenger/Rack - What's the Best Current Practice?
@MichaelHampton That's generally my feeling. The underlying session stores are transparent to the developers (modulo my insisting that they "Make the session store a configuration option so I can change it without patching the code!") - If the software is properly engineered I can change session stores all day long with no code changes from the development team.

comment Sharing HTTP session data in Passenger/Rack - What's the Best Current Practice?
This could just as easily fit over on Stack Overflow, but at least in my organization "How you store the session data" is a sysadmin problem. (What goes in the bucket we provide is the developer's responsibility.)

@Ranveer You have learned an important lesson about backups then. ("If it's important, back it up." - logs you intend to run analysis on are in fact important...) - sadly there is very little chance your logs are recoverable at this point.

@AdityaPatawari If you want a solution for a specific version of MacOS it behooves you to specify the version you're interested in when asking your question...
