How to set up master slave replication in MySQL

MySQL replication is a process that enables data from one MySQL database server (the master) to be copied automatically to one or more MySQL database servers (the slaves). Replication is asynchronous by default. Slaves do not need to be connected permanently to receive updates from the master. Depending on the configuration, you can replicate all databases, selected databases, or even selected tables within a database.

How to disable Let’s Encrypt for the hostname

If you want to replace the certificate for your hostname with a custom certificate but you had enabled Let’s Encrypt, you will need to disable Let’s Encrypt for the hostname first. The following command let’s DirectAdmin know that it does not need to renew the Let’s Encrypt certificate. This is required as DirectAdmin will renew the certificate +/- 60 days after the last renewal, even when the Let’s Encrypt certificate is not installed.

rm -rf /usr/local/directadmin/data/users/user_name/domains/domain_name.lt.san_config
rm -rf /usr/local/directadmin/data/users/user_name/domains/domain_name.lt.cert.creation_time

Proxmox: Shrinking disk of an LVM backed container

Utilizing the device mapper Linux kernel framework, the current iteration, LVM2, can be used to gather existing storage devices into groups and allocate logical units from the combined space as needed.

Proxmox VE 5.4 fix updates / upgrades

Proxmox VE 5.4 has been released, this version is based on Debian 9. (Linux Kernel 4.15) It includes allot of new features, but sadly updates are still pointing to the enterprise repository for updates. This results in ugly error message when trying

apt-get update

such as:

root@server2:~# apt-get update

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

To fix this, its similar to V3.X and V4.X. We need to add one repository:

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

add:

deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian stretch pve-no-subscription

Then disable or remove

rm -f /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list

(for disable add a # in front of the first line starting with deb)

Now you can run those updates take note only

apt-get update

and

apt-get dist-upgrade

are supported by Proxmox!
