I'm a developer from Halifax, and I've spent most of my time with web development and system administration. I love the fast paced nature of web development, how there are so many new and interesting developments.

I use Ruby, Node.js, PHP, JavaScript, SASS, LESS, CSS, HTML and whatever other tools do the job.

comment Sendmail stopped working, millions of entries in mailq
Dropping in some information about what the issue was. This was the result of a compromised Invision Power Board installation. I figured it was that so I disabled the two domains running IPB and the mail queue stopped growing. I had already turned off Postfix so it wouldn't send emails out. Then I proceeded to track down the exploit, fix it, and remove the compromised files. I've fixed the root cause of the exploit as well.

Are you able to try from a different computer? Maybe your local ISP or firewall is blocking the traffic.

Try setting sendfile to off and see if that fixes it. I've had similar problems with sendfile.

comment How to create a VM image?
@AndrewB The whole reason I'm looking into it is because one of our "sysadmins" has been working on this as a top priority for months and hasn't gotten anywhere. I know the requirements and am confident I can do it inside of a week. VMWare Studio looks like its what I want.

I'm not sure exactly, I suspect VMWare ESXi. I am using VMWare Workstation on my personal machine in which I plan to make the VM image.

How can I even start tracking this down? I use plesk and only have a few sites on my server, only two users (both owned by me) with SSH access
