"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.

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?

having heaps of trouble with making a repo to begin with... cd /etc/nginx sudo git init sudo git add ./* sudo git init -a -m "initial commit" sudo git branch nginx -> error: fatal: Not a valid object name: 'master' ... sudo git branch -> blank..

comment Bash script to configure BIND9
I ended up using a modified version of this script in my solution; there were a few other steps involved so I'll link it here in the comments once I've published it! Thanks!

comment Can I proxy my no-ip domain using a .htaccess file on my hosted domain?
DNS is out because getting a Static IP on my ISP is magnitudes costlier than getting a cheap hosting package... Thanks for the response though I'll try it out.

That host doesn't allow ssh access, and I like to update via git.

Solved the problem by changing the reporting options to not complain when a file is in use...
