On daily basis I deploy, maintain and support one of the largest CDNs in the world. I enjoy working on projects involving automation, monitoring, analysing and tweaking *nix system performance, troubleshooting networks, tinkering with virtualisation, etc.

comment Two NICs with Ubuntu server 12.04
Hi James, I'm pretty sure I've just replied to your another question on the same issue (askubuntu.com/questions/289149/two-nics-ubuntu-server-12-04) - is there a reason for reposting it on the same site?

comment Iptables on Ubuntu Server does not open ports
It just doesn't look like there's any application actually listening on this port. Maybe you could let us know what you're trying to achieve, instead of how you're trying to do it. Why do you need to open that port on the firewall in the first place?

revised Debian Stable vs Ubuntu LTS for Server?
"Their", "they're", "there" have 3 completely different meanings and are NOT typos and you should be embarrassed.

comment manually do a `make install`
Unfortunately it's not always so - many times you're just left with a bunch of files generated in seemingly random subdirectories of the build directory. In such cases aside from man pages, configuration files and binaries which are usually easy, you'll need to experiment a bit to figure out for instance where does your binary expect to find the required library. ldd /path/to/binary can often help, unless the binary is statically built but it's a bit of manual work.

I think I understand. Usually when you run configure --help it shows you the default prefix (the root of the filesystem hierarchy your package will be configured with - for distribution packages it's usually '/', for user built packages, it's often '/usr/local/'). You usually move the files produced during the make step somewhere beneath the prefix into <prefix>/lib, <prefix>/etc/, <prefix>/usr/share/man, etc. Some packages when you build them (make) leave the output in the relative directories, i.e. ./usr/bin/<app> ./usr/share/man, etc.

I'd probably find the 'install' target of that Makefile or if you can't/don't want to do it, but wanted to do it cleanly, I'd recommend packaging it into a deb.

comment How to list all configuration files for an already installed package?
Not necessarily - it might be that there are indeed configuration files used by the package but the packager did not designate any files as part of the packaged application's configuration files.
