Using Centos 6, I modified the hosts and network file, restarted and everything has been down. Here are the steps.
/etc/hosts to update the ip from what my dedicated server seller originally had
173.234.60.xxx 173.234.60.xxx.rdn.srv1350.ubiquitymotion (something similar to this) to 173.234.60.xxx domain.com (my current domain)
Secondly I added to my
GATEWAY=192.168.1.254 as the
HOST properties were already set
Lastly I ran
/etc/init.d/network restart it turned off eth0 OK and that's the last I heard. Afterwards I haven't been able to connect on any ports, it seems to have cleared the whole harddrive. not sure if anyone has experienced this but I'm baffled...
