i7-4960x -- Server

Start Date: 2014-02-01

    • The web pages are finally working. All three computers access the php address page. The other two computers are kubuntu and could also access the php portfolio page. This one is ubuntu and it couldn't. Details on on the web page fiasco are on the Master and setup pages but the portfolio error message on this computer was
      • Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user 'jim'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in /home/jim/Common/www/lynchjim.com/html/PhpScripts/Prtf/index.php on line 24
    • The difference in the address and portfolio files, address first
      • $link = mysql_connect( "localhost", "www-data", "" )
      • $link = mysql_connect( "localhost", "", "" )
    • I made it www-data in both files. Problem solved. But why a problem only on this computer and not the other two.
  • 2014-12-04
    • That date is approximate. Upgrades to kubuntu 14.04 went so well on two computers that I upgrades the server. That is when I found out the web page doesn't work on any of them. I've been fighting it every since.

    • Somehow, unplugging and plugging in MASTER, this computer froze up. I had to hard reboot. Possibly disabling the KVM, dangling KVM cables, maybe moving cables at the network switch. I don't know, now it's fine.

    • When you log in the system notifies you that "4 packages can be updated. 3" ... " are security updates." *** System restart required *** When you apt-get update and upgrade, there is nothing there.

    • Isolating MASTER lockup
      • Swaped ram between MASTER and i7-4960x (Server).
      • Found both had two tall sticks and two short sticks.
      • Put all the tall in MASTER. All the short in i7-4960x (Server).
  • 2014-02-02
    • mysql runs address.sql real slow.
      • show variables;
        • storage_engine = InnoDB
      • mysql> set global storage_engine=MyISAM;
      • mysql> set storage_engine=MyISAM;
    • Problem: InnoDB is ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability) compliant and hence fully transactional with ROLLBACK, COMMIT and support for Foreign Keys. MyISAM is not.
    • Problem: setting the storage engine is not persistent. It must be reset every time mysql starts up (every reboot).
