Power outage and a half-new server with Ubuntu 10.04 | Lawrence Poon

Power outage and a half-new server with Ubuntu 10.04

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Last week my house had a short power outage, my server which is hosting this website did not work from then on. My first thought was something wrong with the power supply of my humble five year old server, which has an AMD64 with 2G Ram. After replacing the power supply, the system still did not work. I thought the motherboard or CPU may be dead. I purchased a Dual Core2 CPU (E7500, SLGTE, yes it supports Intel VT), 4G RAM and an Intel DG41TY Motherboard (http://www.intel.com/products/desktop/motherboards/dg41ty/dg41ty-overvie...), and found an old Antech case with 350 Watt power supply, which was collecting dust in my basement. I connected the old server hard drive to the half-new system, to my surprise, the sytsem booted up with all my websites live in minutes, The X Windows was not working as the video card is different, I did not brother to fix.

I thought it may be a good time to upgrade my server to Ubuntu 10.04 as well, I dis-assembled my USB 250GB external hard drive. (I have an one Terabyte for backup purpose, I do not need this one). The installation process was very smooth. After coping some files and mysql dumping some databases, now my website is serving by Ubuntu 10.04. I can see the half-new server is running a lot faster.

I pull out the 2GB RAM from my old server and re-built another old Pentium 4. I installed Window XP Pro and gave the machine to my neighbour young boy. He was very happy.
