Fourmilab Server Update

At 22:30 UTC on 2009-01-10 I put the updated server configuration into production at Fourmilab. The load balancer was directed to route all public requests to the machine which was previously the backup server, and has now been designated the production server. This machine is running CentOS 5.2 (GNU/Linux 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5PAE) and all publicly-accessible server programs and CGI applications have been rebuilt with current compilers and libraries.

I will be watching the error logs like a hawk for the next few days—it's amazing how many long-obsolete requests pop up when you supplant some file that's been knocking around the Web for decade or so in links and message boards.

This is the first message posted to Fourmilog from the new server with Movable Type 4.23 and the MySQL backing store.
