comment Can KVM suspend or shutdown guests automatically on host shutdown?
Hmmmm. Yeah, it's also suspiciously missing in the code. What the libvirt-guests script actually does is run virsh managedsave. (It looks like maybe only the UML driver supports system_powerdown.) Thanks for the catch! I'll update my answer, and file a bug against the documentation.

comment How do you upgrade PHP 5.1 to PHP 5.3 using yum on CentOS
There really isn't any CentOS version but the latest; if you initially installed CentOS 5.1 and kept up with patches, you have 5.6. (And if you haven't kept up with patches, please don't install PHP.)

This is not necessary, and also has some disturbing repercussions. For one, now you've not got an easy source for updates for php, and while php is better than it was for a while there, php is generally something you want to stay on top of security patches for.

Oh I see. Not telnet to the server system; use telnet to open a tcp connection to the server port.

comment Moving/Adding Additional Swap Location - Redhat 5
Are you sure that swap is filling up /, and not temporary files (or log files, or something else)?

comment Moving/Adding Additional Swap Location - Redhat 5
@rkalajian — look at man swapon for how to set the relative priority of your swap devices. (This can go in fstab, too.)

comment Moving/Adding Additional Swap Location - Redhat 5
You can also use files; you don't have to use partitions, and you don't have to use something like swapd to do so.
