Couldn't sleep, so now the gitlab instance works too. The redis.conf broke from the upgrading (redis refused to load with the old config file) and apparently the unixsocket had to be re-enabled...

Now everything should work again. Let's do the brave upgrades tomorrow! Debian testing, here I come!

Interesting evening.

Started the preparations for upgrading a linode server. I really need to upgrade the distro, but first, let's get to stable grounds.

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade

Kept some of my changed configs, rebooted to ensure a clean restart and...

... no network. Nothing. Fixed it.

After that, no php. Had to tweak the fastcgi_params file to get nginx and php to play nice again. Now, all that is broken is gitlab, but I need to sleep before I tackle it.

Challenging to run when someone has driven a harvester along the path. Still got to appreciate the approach to take out some trees and not cut it clean.

I counter the cold and snow (in the air, but not on the ground) with pics of my fresh potato plants (in the greenhouse) and onions (outdoors). Take that!
