Web-based services unavailable

Apache was unable to start after a MySQL upgrade from 4.0 to 5.0 (due to invalid library references). Unfortunately, it took quite some time for Gentoo to recompile all the affected libraries required for everything to come back online.

I’m looking forward to the new vserver-setup, which I’m confident will make downtime due to issues such as this a thing of the past.

  1. Gentoo is nice, but it takes time to do panic fixes (if it requires compilation)… ;)

    That is why I use FreeBSD for my production boxes. I use their port utility to fetch the initial install, which is almost instant… then I compile it from source in the background.
