Random Tips

  • Panic in the ranks! This is not the first thing you want your users to see in the morning as they attempt to log into to complete a grant application:

    After some poking around it turns out we were out of allocated disk space on the Linode.  df -m showed 100%. I think this was related to a backup and restore that I had done a day earlier; which preserved the old image as it copied a new version  to the same allocated disk space. The actual error was returned by LimeSurvey, which was reacting to a system 8 error generated by mySQL.

  • Trying to see the analytics for a bit.ly link?  Just append a plus sign ‘+’ to the link. This will show the statistics for the link instead of what the link points to.
