    What happened to the crissic website?

    I had crissic on a list of hosts I was comparing and noticed this morning the website just goes to their billing system. They don't have any information about the company or products there. I had to use the archive version of the site...

    How to get my webserver to start automatically if my VPS is rebooted?

    My website went down when my vps provider had maintenance and my vps restarted. It was short maintenance but my site was down for much longer because I did not realize my server was back online quickly... but the webserver not started back up. How can I make sure my webserver will come back on...

    Is it worth it to host your own dns?

    I let cloudflare host my dns because it's easy to setup and only requires on IP on the VPS but have been looking at guides to host it myself for learning purposes. Is it even worth it to host your dns or is it better to let a service designed to do it do it? What do you think?

    CentOS, Ubuntu or Debian for a newbie learning to manage a server?

    He does not want to use a control panel, wants to learn without one. At first just hosting a wordpress blog so will be following guides on setting up a LAMP stack and stuff. I guess I can tell him to sign up here and ask his own questions :P

    CentOS, Ubuntu or Debian for a newbie learning to manage a server?

    What control panel would you recommend for an absolute Linux newbie who hasn't managed a server without a control panel before? (This is not for me, by the way. I already use Debian and know the basics) I do not really know why some one would want one OS over another and it seems like a personal...

    Why is there so many different SSL types?

    I was looking at different SSL Certificate options last night and notice there are many different types available at many different price ranges. Why are some $10/YR, and others $500/YR? I know their protection level differs, but what is preventing a $10/YR certificate from having the same...

    Definition of "Cloud"

    To me cloud just means that the equipment and hardware and network powering my VPS can withstand failures without impacting my uptime. So if someone unplugs a power cable, if a hard drive crashes or a server gets thrown into a swimming pool... my data will remain online.

    Nginx downloads php file instead of displaying it

    Well, I sort of figured it out though it's not what I read that was recommended. Changed in: /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf listen = /var/run/php5-fpm.sock TO listen = 127.0.0.1:9000 Changed in: /etc/nginx/sites-available/default fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock; TO fastcgi_pass...

    Nginx downloads php file instead of displaying it

    Also my /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf file shows that it is listening for /var/run/php5-fpm.sock and so does the nginx configuration file too so I don't think it's that.

    Nginx downloads php file instead of displaying it

    I commented it out and restarted nginx with no go. Now it's just giving a 502 error, not trying to download the file anymore.
