Lighttpd Versus Nginx!

Today(or yesterday now), I spent like 10 hours trying to figure out why my web server kept going down.

Well, I did upgrade to Lighttpd couple months back, which is much better web server than Apache. (YouTube runs on Lighttpd btw.)

When I am away from from home and I want to access my linux box, I can access it (SSH into it) using DDNS (dynamic DNS).  This is great since I have my own backup server plus I can test out my web servers on my linux box before going live.

Here’s a write-up I did over at my new Palm Pre Hacks blog on how to SSH into a Palm Pre.  Check it out if you got a Palm Pre and ahead of the curve. 🙂

The second day I got the Palm Pre, I was able to SSH into my own Palm Pre and also make it into a WiFi Router.  Of course, this is usual business for me as I manage about 30+ web servers on a daily basis.  If I see a linux machine, the first thing I want to do is SSH into it.

Linux Web Server Hack – How to Write Automated Load Balancing Script!

Well, I have been manually managing the dedicated server for this site for last 2 years or so but I found a better way to automate the server so it doesn’t ever go down due to overload.
