comment Logrotate for node.js app deployed using monit and upstart
Thanks, but reload myapp will actually shut down the app without restarting. My .conf (init) script do not have a reload section.

comment dovecot-lmtp does not exist
I've done that and I've updated the post. That's why postfix is looking for lmtp at port 2424, but it's not opened regardless of the lmtp section dovecot config.

The file is actually identical to library.linode.com/assets/1240-dovecot_10-master.conf.txt with the exception that I opened 110 port. I now have tried switching it to inet listener, but it still failed to work.

The other services are all up, including imap, authentication via mysql, pop, smtp. The folder is owned by postfix. The time of other sockets are exactly the service restart time. Only this lmtp transport is broken. And regarding the log, the errors are produced when postfix is restarted, dovecot restart produces no errors.

I do have this protocol. Actually I've copied the config file from the guide. I'll review the log file again to see why this socket is not created.

I've appended the log at the end of this post.

@NickW I do have the lmtp section. When dovecot is restarted, it produces thousands of the 'no such file or directory' error in the log. I guess this is because mails are actually received but not delivered. Besides these errors, I'm not seeing anything particular. My problem though, is that I really don't have this executable file.

comment Upgrade server software without blackout period
@SQLChicken, many thanks for the tips. I was hoping there's something between blackout and cluster. But I can see that cluster is my best option.

Thanks for the recommendations, I'll checkout the documents of the programs you mentioned. But one thing I'm not sure, is sharing the same IP among two servers. If that's possible, then I won't have any problems. The hosting provider I contacted says it's not possible to have two servers using the same IP. Even if you could configure a static IP on both, their router/switch simply do not use the second server.

Thanks! I'll keep this failover dns service as a backup plan.

Hmm... actually they won't get 404 500 errors. Because the entire server is offline, so all they've got is connection timeout. As if the service disappeared.
