I know I annoyed you a lot lately. But you have my word: it’s over.
What cause’d the trouble? Well let me explain.
The server for IAF.org changed a few weeks ago. Now it’s running on some shiny new SSDs with an awesome performance. But… I also had to reinstall the OS. Normally I get the new server, Install and configure everything and set my home-DNS Server so it points to the new server. This allows me to test everything before I do the big move to the new server.
Everything seemd to be fine and everything was working as a charm, and it was damn fast too.
Then I installed the first system updated and shit hit the fan. The webserver didn’t came up and some other services were not responding anymore. Bughunting revealed that the server was too fast.
- Boot up
- start network interfaces
- start webserver
- // webserver crash: network not ready
- network ready
I think you see the problem.
It took me hours of research, reading errorlogs and try things, reboot the server, reinstall the whole server, and so on.
Today I got it. Everything returned to normal.
At least now I understand systemd and how to handle its units…
