Ubuntu Installation :: 8.04 Hardy To 9.10 Koala - Server Hosted
Mar 8, 2010
Made an account specially for this. I have a server hosted with iWeb and obviously cant just stick the CD in and fresh install. Im looking to upgrade the entire server to 9.10 all through SSH or within 8.04's GUI all the while not having to reboot until its ready to run and configured otherwise im left with an inactive server...
I reinstalled Ubuntu on my HP pc-40 computer. I used to run Hardy Heron and am now running Karmic Koala. The cd drive which had had issues for a while, broke after finishing the install, when I tried to get the cd out.I dont know if this has anything to do with it, or if my computer is too old for Karmic Koala, or if possibly the harddrive didn't appreciate being overwritten a second time - but the graphics are not working well (small squares of previous windows linger in my present browser window*)everythin is much slower, and many applications come up without a border, or their windows cant be moved with the mouse.
To top it off, while I tried to fix a bug with the terminal (no border) and uninstalled it, I couldnt install it back. So no terminal, which really makes even a newbie like me sad.If I cant solve it in a few days I will probably try to install a smaller distro via USB - I think Slax can be installed straight to USB without a live cd?
I bought a magazine "Ubuntu User" that comes with the 9.10 DVD (32- & 64-bit) to avoid heavy download.
1. What is the biggest benefit of the DVD versus the CD ? Having more software on the disc right ? But how can I install additional SW without downloading ? 2. I want to install a Home Server from the DVD but I don't know how to select the server edition to install ? Do I still need to download the CD image for the server edition ? I want to be able to select one or more of the automatic server installation scripts e.g. LAMP.
I've had issues with the later versions of Ubuntu, so in an effort to road-test Firefox 3.5 on Hardy I'd like to change my Karmic/Hardy dual boot to a Hardy/Hardy dual boot, and follow the instructions in [URL] to put the Mozilla build of 3.5 on the new installation.
I can't see any reason why a Hardy/Hardy dual-boot shouldn't work, but does anyone know of any issues with this I might not be aware of?
i compiled and install postfix, and i using relayhost that point to my ISP. but my "DNS server" is on the same server where is installed postfix. and there is running apache with vhosts so i have domain that hosted on same server and in zonefiles of my domain my MX records points to Google Apps, to google's MX servers. But when i try send E-mail via sendmail to email@example.com it not deliver mail to Google Apps totally, if i try to send to another E-mail everything fine it deliver it. so finally i done research this problem in Internet. And find that need to disable deliver mail to localhost(localdelivery)as i think postfix understand that the domain point to the same server where postfix have itself. and try to deliver mail local. but zonefile MX record even the domain on same server can point to another server outside. So i disabled localdelivery in postfix. and problem not fixed
When i starts it for the first time,my sites getting loaded fast when requested through browser,but slows down gradually. what could be the reason, my cpu load seems ok. Because i have another site hosted through apache in the same server and its getting loaded fast. so what could be the issue.
So, I have a website that is hosted at Godaddy and I've set up a database with the ability to access it remotely. I was wondering if there is an easy way to set up an automated back-up of said database at Godaddy, to my local server.
I have just joined this respective forum and I have a issue with website hosted on Virtual Redhat Server. Scenario is like this I have three virtual redhat server(R1,R2,R3) 5.0 on VMware workstation 7.0 installed on window 7(physical machine), on R1 I have DNS server , On R2 I have Apache web server and I have hosted a website called "geekgadget.com" just for testing purpose, R3 is just a normal server nothing installed on it yet..
Problem : I can access my website [URL] from all of my three virtual redhat server but when I try to access it from some of my physical XP,window 7 machines as well as from virtual XP machine present on my local LAN, website cannot be accessed so I am not getting the point why it happens because I checked that my port 80 is listening.
I am having a web server (apache) and 3 sites are hosted in it, named as www.web1.com,www.web2.com and www.web3.com. I need to restrict www.web2.com to Internet users and allow only to local network. At same time I need to allow www.web1.com and www.web3.com to both Internet and LAN users.
I have a site hosted on a cheap hosting company and I need to allow write access to certain users in certain directories, sometimes on a file basis.
Q: how do I do that in a .htaccess file?
I have never used .htaccess although from what I read it looks straightforward but when I try it, I get a "500 server error" even with the example .htaccess file the hosting company suggested I use. (I have informed the host as they require and am awaiting their answer)
The site is automatically set up with a couple of dot file in the root directory when I got it, they are:
I would like to use an extra physical hard drive in my linux server to provide my wife a place to backup her Windows XP desktop.I am willing to format this drive as NTFS (or anything else) and have it dedicated to this purpose. I am wondering what is the easiest way to proceed?
Normally, on my website, files are either handled by WordPress or by me doing FTP. I'd like to copy my entire site to a new folder. I don't want to copy it down to my local drive (with wget) and then just upload it. How close is this to the line I'd need (except near midnight)
mv -r fromfolder \%todaysdate%
I've played with Unix and Linux for a few days over the years, but I'm a Windows (and DOS-prompt) guy. So, I don't know how to get to the server's command prompt on my 1and1-hosted site.
I have an ubuntu server with a printer plugged to it through USB. I used to set the server ip on the Printing panel to print remotelly to it, but it doesn't work anymore since I upgraded to karmic. I can see the printer in the printer panel, and I can even print a test page through the panel, but I can't print from any other application. When I come to the printing screen, the printer has the message retrieving information from printer and I can't print. I guess the cups server is working well as I can print the test page, and I used to print with hardy, looks like if the changes made in the printing panel don't have any effect on the system.
I am using a dell mini with Hardy and do not seem to be able to upgrade at all. I have tried following the instructions in the ubuntu documentation but the upgrade manager finds no new releases to upgrade to. Does anyone have any suggestions on what my be preventing me from upgrading? My goal is to get to 10.04.
I want to upgrade from Ubuntu 7.10 - the Gutsy Gibbon to 8.04 hardy heron. Will I have any problems after installation using the update manager. Will I lose any programs or files (mp3's movies) on my computer after installation? Are there any serious bugs that will my machine useless afterward?
I recently installed Karmic Koala server edition, and then did the 'apt-get ..install' for the desktop gnome, but now I'm not sure what to do to get my gui to show. I am stuck at the termanal type command line, it's asking for a sudo comman. I know a few 'sudo' commands, but I really need the gui.
I'm using Hardy Heron. I'd like to keep using it. I mean forever.
I have several old PCs, and in the past few years I've installed 8.04 several times. Every time I install, it downloads about 184 updates... a slow process.
I would like to put all the .deb files on a CD (or flash drive) so that future installs won't need to download these updates.
Question 1: How do I get a newly installed version of Hardy Heron to recognize that there are files on the CD, and so use them rather than downloading the files. I think that maybe just copying the files to /var/cache/apt/archive might work.
Question 2: I once loved version 7 of Ubuntu like I love 8.04 now. But when I try to install it, it won't update anything anymore and it seems unable to find any additional software for version 7. Now I've abandoned version 7, but is there a way to download hundreds of deb files for Hardy Heron, save them to a CD, to ensure that I can continue to use Hardy Heron in say, the year 2012, and have access to all of its non-standard packages, and still be able to install other packages which are located on CD?

I've been trying for the past week to install an icecast server on my centos 5 VPS hosted through phurix.
I've tried compiling it, installing it from RPM. but im getting nowhere. Has anybody had any luck installing it, who wouldn't mind explaining how they went about it?
I've searched google for hours on end and all I can come up with is generic cent os 4 guides that just wont work. Im not the best when in comes to linux. I do a great job of copying and pasting to a shell prompt and can use ftp etc.
if this is any use.. heres the last output from my last attempt and compiling it...
[root@vps613 icecast-2.3.2]# ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/icecast checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p checking for gawk... gawk checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
I really want Python 2.6, which is not part of the standard Hardy packages. I just tried installing the Python 2.6 Linux distro direct from python.org. While I didn't see any error messages during the installation, I'm still defaulting to Python 2.5, and 2.6 installed to a different folder than 2.5.
A secondary wish: I would also like GROMACS 4.0 instead of 3.3. Again, Karmic has it as standard, Hardy doesn't.
I'm running dual hard drives in a software RAID1 configuration. My system is Linux only, so I have no Windoze compatibility issues to worry about.
Still, I've gathered that upgrading in the presence of RAID is different, and more problematic, than a standard upgrade.
