New Server

OpenBSDI've finally finished moving to a new server. It's slightly faster. The biggest benefit, though, is that I'm now hosting in my house. I now have business-class FiOS service through Verizon. With that, I get static IP addresses and they don't block any ports.

Access to email and my web site should feel a little faster because I've got a 15/2 Mbps pipe all for Previously I was sharing a T1 (1.5/1.5 Mbps) with other customers of the ISP.

Enjoy the new bandwidth!

Server Specs:

  • An old Dell Dimension Pentium III 866 with 512 MB RAM

  • Two 30 GB hard drives with /home RAIDed using RAIDFRAME

  • OpenBSD 3.8

  • The website is running the stock Apache with OpenBSD 3.8 and Wordpress 2.0.2.

  • My Picture Gallery is running Gallery 2.0.4.

  • My mail server is running the stock sendmail that comes with OpenBSD 3.8 (with the SASL option compiled in) and Courier IMAP/POP3 with SSL from ports.

  • Webmail is provided by Squirrelmail 1.4.6.
