Which level of data protection should I expect for a Linode personal server without backup service?

How do you think, without the backup service, the probability of a […]

how to use Linode to host multiple web apps – RoR and PHP

I have a Ruby on Rails application and a couple of PHP projects nearly complete (all using MySQL) that I’d like to host on a Linode server and need some help with what I’d need to install and configure to do this. They would each have their own separate domain (probably with GoDaddy). I’m not looking for a step-by-step instructions – more of a guide of what I should look into and research to be […]

What and where is my bootloader on a linode instance?

Using a virtualized instance on linode.com, I don’t see where my bootloader is. In the usual place where I would find grub, i.e. in /boot/grub/menu.lst, I don’t see any files or directories below the /boot path. It’s completely empty. How do I find out where my bootloader is for my server instance on linode.com?

What is the worst distro on Linode? [closed]

We are going to move from Slicehost to Linode (the 1024MB ram) to host our website. Now we have to take a distribution. After discussing, the remaining candidates are: Arch Linux 2010.05 Debian 5.0 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS The needs are simple: once set-up, we would like to forget about it, except for the needed updates, and dedicate to the website maintenance. Could seem too simplistic, but the end result is running the website. We would […]

Why doesn’t Linode ever have to shut down for updates?

I’ve been using Linode for over a year now, and, unlike some lesser-known VPS hosts I’ve used, I’ve never been required to shut down my VPS by Linode. The only restarts have been ones I’ve initiated. How do they go for years on end without requiring restarts and with no downtime? Isn’t downtime inevitable when upgrading some parts of the host system? Do they simply perform as few updates as possible? This isn’t meant to […]
