Linux: NGINX Webserver growing in the market

NGINX takes 2nd place in Web Servers from Microsoft IIS | ZDNet.

I came across this one a short while ago. I have not used NGINX myself yet though one of my hosted servers uses it though I have no control over it (cpanel access only) . I have been playing with the idea of configuring some “unusual” systems at home and I think I am going to take a look at how NGINX might integrate with some IBM/Lotus products. I have seen it used as a proxy server (or several servers) in front of IBM web servers but I have not yet seen it used as the actual web server for Connections or Sametime or any other Websphere server.

Anyone out there that has experience in this? I searched online and could not find anything and now I am intrigued – I guess I will have to add this to my long list of things I want to try out.

Domino on Linux: Upgrading to Domino 8.5.2 trouble -> FP are the cluprits

I had been putzing around with my golf swing linux based Domino servers over the weekend. I did run into some issue with upgrading servers but because working my 3/4 pitch swing to the green looked so much more important to me (the weather was GORGEOUS!!) I put it off until later.

Fast forward to today and this is a new technote I just found in the IBM support stream:

IBM – Upgrading from a Notes 8.5.1 fixpack to Notes 8.5.2 for Linux rpm

To summarize quickly: If you have an existing 8.5.1 Domino server on Linux that has ANY FP installed – you will not be able to upgrade to 8.5.2 right away but will have to uninstall the FP to get back to a vintage 8.5.1 install. Once you are back to square eleven you will be able to run your upgrade just as you are used to it. Mind you, you DO NOT have to uninstall 8.5.1, you just have to get rid of your fixpack.

Once the weather goes bad and I don’t feel like working on that golf swing (or my scores on the course nosedive) I will go through the log files on my server I was working on and see if the error messages outlined in this technote match. I want to make sure it was not admin induced error or some other, unrelated issue.

Funny thing is: I have not heard from anybody in my network about this issue yet – has anybody run into it yet?Technorati Tags: , , ,
