Unixdaemon.net Site Upheavals

You may have noticed the abscense of my sites and received bounced emails yesterday, this is due to the machine that this site was being hosted on getting cracked via a vulnerability in a PHP application.

That machine was a shared box that had a number of people looking after it, but with no central responsibility or formal plans in place. I’m now running on a Bytemark box, which I bought for this purpose about six months ago, and just never got around to finishing, which is going to be my new home. I had a known good set of backups to restore from and after some final Apache, Postfix and DNS fiddeling (I had this machine as my qa site in the past) things should be setteling down nicely.
