Actually, no. When I get it up I plan on running sendmail, so
root's mail will be sent to another box, and httpd and mysql.
Currently, fstat | wc -l reports 136 open files...not even close
Those are the big ones. Others will be standard, sshd, syslog,
I did recompile the kernel, but didn't mess with the default
process management settings.
Any recommendations? This box is being designed as a webserver. I'm
trying to install Geeklog, an OpenSource blog / content management /
web portal thingy that uses mySQL and PHP. The site will be low
traffic, mainly a "lab" for me to learn new things.
