  • Check for Running Process
  • I have a process that keeps disappearing for a yet unknown reason. So, I finally added a script that will check for the process, and if it's not there, will restart it. Here it is:
    SERVICE='myprocess'
    
    if ps ax | grep -v grep | grep $SERVICE > /dev/null
    then
        echo "$SERVICE service running, everything is fine"
    else
        echo "$SERVICE is not running"
        /restart_myprocess.com
    fi

  • New OS Options
  • I'm pleased to announce that additional OS templates are available for your VPS installs. No longer are you forced to have Centos 4 installed as your VPS operating system. During signup there is now a selection of OSes that you can choose from. If your favorite one isn't listed, let us know and we'll see about adding it.

    If you'd like to play around with different OSes on your VPS, shoot us an email. We can easily reconfigure your VPS OS template, and then you can "recreate" your VPS over and over while you learn the OS or practice setting it up.

    Good times!
