      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

  1. is vpsboard dead?

    We're busy buying xmas stuff :-)
  2. The revision 1.2 of the Raspberry Pi 2 has now a BCM2837 CPU with up to 900 MHz and includes 1 GB RAM. Looking at the Raspberry Pi 3 with it's 1.2 GHz, the main difference between them is the the WiFi and Bluetooth module. Some might think that this is a stupid idea, but their are some advantages: RP2 on the same 64bit plattform RP2 with the same amount of RAM RP3 as an upgrade if someone needs Wifi and/or Blueooth (and UART issues) For me the Raspberry Pi 3 had two major issues: Heat - looks like the > 1 Ghz need active cooling First on 64 bit - not that good for software support Both checked with the new revision of the Raspberry Pi 2.
  3. Resin.io is a fork of the Yocto-based OS and is now able to run Docker containers on Linux IoT devices. Resin known for their Linux/Javascript-based IoT framework forked their Linux OS behind the framework as an open source project over a year ago. The open source ResinOS is now publicly available on its own: https://github.com/resin-os ResinOS can run on mostly ARM-based embedded Linux platforms including the Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, and Odroid: https://resinos.io/ The open source Linux CoreOS (https://coreos.com/why/), supports only x86-64, although attempts have been made to port it to the Raspberry Pi. There are other Docker-friendly Linux distributions like Red Hat based Project Atomic, but still no ARM support. Snappy Ubuntu Core, which supports Docker on ARM and x86 embedded targets, but still on some major brands. So ResinOS looks like a great new Linux distribution.
  4. Key word is mainline kernel support. Don't buy anything from companies that do not push drivers to the linux kernel.
  5. SpaceWeb (EU) - 2 GB Webhosting Package

    Time for an update: 0 minutes of network downtime for the last 335 days. I/O is great.
  6. Secure Dragon OpenVZ 128 MB (New York)

    Time for an update: 0 minutes of network downtime since the last update. CPU and I/O are ok. Network is ok.
  7. RamNode OpenVZ SSD 128MB - WA

    Time for an update: 31 minutes of network downtime since the last update. 23 Minutes of downtime since the last update. Uptime of the vps itself is 3 days. But 673 days of uptime are not that bad. CPU and I/O are really good. Network is good.
  8. Secure Dragon OpenVZ 128 MB (Chicago)

    Time for an update: 19 minutes of network downtime since the last update. CPU and I/O are great. Network is good.
  9. RamNode OpenVZ SSD 128MB (NL)

    Time for an update: 41 minutes of network downtime since the last update. CPU and I/O are good. Network is good.

  12. How do you run your homepages?

    I would never grand a systemuser or anything running on a vps access on my git repros...
  13. Found a nice github project which does the same for MySQL or Sqlite databases: https://github.com/mevdschee/php-crud-api
  14. How do you run your homepages?

    I am using git for version control only. See my tutorial:
