Yer well, hehehe, my rsync setup was a broken one.
SO.. Testing rsync again.
DoD server is now up at: au.seekbrain.com:27015
Check it out. 🙂
I also upgraded Australian Seekbrain.com from Fedora Core 1 to Fedora Core 2. Also used a few tricks on the Plesk forums on how to get Plesk running with FC2 (RPM issues).
Ok, you may (or may not ;)) notice that when you goto Seekbrain.com you’re automatically forwarded to either us.seekbrain.com or au.seekbrain.com. This is based on your geographical location and effectively means U.S. people view off the fast U.S. server and Australian people view off the Australian server. Pretty l33t huh? 😉
I’ve also setup the DNS to load balance automatically for the first hit to either the Aus or U.S. server. Finally, the U.S. server is a slave to the Australian in all aspects. This includes DNS, Mail and Web content (there’s an rsync done every hour from the U.S. to the Aus box).
This has ONE disadvantage. I’ll post updates on the Au server and it’ll be up to hour until they’re posted to the U.S. one. I’m going to implement a 404 forwarding system so that it forwards to the AU server on a 404. That should mean that when MT pings the various weblog locations that U.S. people will still be able to view it straight away (albeit off the AU server).
Ok, Atomic Rocket Turtle’s (www.atomicrocketturtle.com) Gamera project has been rebuilt for 3ES and released here.
Yeah well, due to EV1’s SCO agreement I’m moving out of EV1 servers. SO, I grabbed a 1&1 server AND an Australian server. Will have the Australian one rsync to the U.S. one once it’s up and running.
I’m also firewalling OFF EV1 due to the aforementioned agreement.
