Server stable.

Holding at 60 degrees, despite the heat. Fan at 1800 RPM. All good so far.

Server relocation

After the (brief) server downtime today, I’ve realised it’s the mesh wifi that is part of the problem. So the server has gone to the node now. It’s truly a headless box.

I was a bit worried about the temperature but the fan seems to hold it at 57-60 degrees which is ok I guess.

UPS

Added in another UPS into the system to hopefully protect the server and maintain its uptime.

Will see how that goes.

Mail Server

This is for documenting the server woes I’ve had. In fact, it started as woes not related to my server, but to the email server that net registry was running for painscience. That just failed on friday.

After two days, being told by tech support that they couldn’t fix the problem with cPanel, I decided to build my own email server.

And it works!

Along the way, its been a voyage of discovery, with SSL certificates (to secure the webmail), and even a lot of pain with getting wordpress generally to work with SSL. But that seems to work now after a lot of experimentation.

So, for better or worse, I have a mail server now running in its own VM… At least the cost per user is pretty low (like, zero other than my time).

I’ll probably need a bigger SSD at some stage, but for now mostly its about backups.

Linux Server

Just wondering if I should migrate to a Linux server altogether..

The Linux VM’s work so well, just have to see if there is an alternative to time machine.

SERVER UPGRADE

This one took time. A new SSD for the Mac mini. But its in, and upgraded. So far, so good. The mini is working like a treat.

Interestingly, I never saw the second HDD, but did manage to get the old flash drive out.

Migrating Servers

Just a couple of sites left to migrate now. Server seems to be working better with joondalup.org in its own VM.

Homekit Woes

Yep.  Homekit just lost my entire house setup.

No obvious reason for it.  Just suddenly, there are no devices in my now empty house (homekit wise empty that is).

This is a complete pain. Not impressed.
