Journal: new ip addresses for shank

Journal by whimmel

The IP addresses for shank have changed. The new address is 108.10.142.57. The old address, 192.217.247.78, is going away very soon.

I've updated nameservice and apache to listen for the new address. Everything else should be listening on both addresses until .247.78 goes away. It might take 24-48 hours for the DNS change to propogate.

If you notice any problems with the switch, notify me immediately.

Journal: spam assassin and clamscan

Journal by whimmel

I've had spamassassin and clamscan installed for a while but never got around to why they weren't actually scanning the email :-) They're running now.

If you noticed, there was a period of several hours where some mail wasn't passing through due to a permissions problem between qmail scanner and clamd. That's been fixed and now shank is working on a huge queue of email (spam!)

Hopefully I'll be able to figure out dSPAM for our configuration eventually since that works a lot better than spamassassin.

Journal: new trouble ticket system

Journal by whimmel

I've set up a new system to help keep track of problems and feature requests from you. It's hosted on a separate server, so if shank goes down you'll hopefully still be able to reach buttons. The link is in the column on the right.

Your customer name is used as your userid and password. You may change that when you log in.

Status:
mysql is now running. Let me know if you have problems with that. Also I had the wrong version of "checkpassword" in the pop3 config. I put in "checkvpw" for virtual user mail and restarted the daemon.

Status:
Virtual-user mail appears to be working. I also turned on pop3. You should be able to relay mail through shank as before too, I fixed the smtp-auth and should work with a secure connection.

Merry Christmas!

Only thing I accomplished today was setting allow_url_fopen in php.ini and restarting the webserver. I'm off tomorrow so I should get more time to resolve the problems with virtual-user email.

perl cgi works now. If you are getting 500 Internal Server Error, the permissions are more strict now. Make sure your files are chmod 0755 with proper user:group settings.

For some reason mysql thinks it's already running when it's not. It won't bind to the UNIX socket. I'm running out of time today before work. If you have a hint, let me know :-)

With the reboot, single-drop email is working. Those of you (me included) that use virtual-user email, that still requires more work. So does mysql. Leave me a message if you notice something ELSE that doesn't work.

I took the server down for a reboot and it hasn't come back up. Waiting for the host. I'm headed off to work so unless they let me go early (not likely) I won't be able to do anything further until tonight. I'm expecing most of the services to operate normally when the machine comes back up.

I've set up the physical user accounts on shank. If you have a shell account, you should be able to ssh in now.

Action:
pop3 and imap are being installed now. When it finishes you'll be able to start checking your mail. While that's installing, I'm working on getting your websites back up and running.

Status:
qmail is now accepting mail and it is being queued up on the server for delivery. Once I have everyone's account configured, I will enable delivery and you'll be able to check your mail.

Action:
Right now I'm installing mysql, python, php, apache and qmail-scanner (and all their dependencies). This should be complete when I get home tonight so I can set everything else up.
