"Professionally" I do PHP, but in my spare time I tinker in C++/Java etc. Playing with Node a little lately.

comment How can I automatically detect and resolve an IP conflict in Ubuntu?
the arping seems to check whether the IP is conflicted well enough, but killall dhclient says 'dhclient is not running' (dhclient3 is though). And dhclient <interface> says error: file already exists. Also did you mean put put <interface> in the ifconfig arg? I've also tried sudo dhclient -r and that's not solving the ip conflict any more either :(

Can't do that :(. We're building a unit which could be deployed on networks we have no control over. The machine itself has to do what it can to remain online.

comment How should I Backup / Restore my Ubuntu server onto a different host?
I see there's something of a holy war on between "puppet vs chef". Can you recommend which would be quickest to learn/implement for a single server?

Thank you. I will look into Puppet, Chef, and rsnapshot. I'll let you know how I go.

comment how can I git-revise configs in my /etc/ dir? (sudo has different keys..)
I could symlink them into my dropbox instead... Is that a dumb idea?
