So after about 3 days of work, the new server (Malbec, which continues my naming convention of alcohol) is now running almost all of the services for my domains. As mentioned before, the new box is very noticeably faster, which was the main goal. It’s most noticeable for the database backed web services which was in some cases too painful to use.
About the only issue so far is getting ISC dhcpd to compile under Leopard. Since I use static IP addresses extensively, it makes alternative solutions pretty painful to use. I’d really like to use bind/dhcp with ddns updates, but I may be a bit too optimistic.
On a side note, WTF is going on with SourceForge? I’ve been trying to download Cricket, but they’ve been having problems for two days now.
