It’s been a while since I’ve done more than just update the Unified Trees post for new versions, and I stumbled across an issue that Linux administrators that make use of iptables should be aware of. The case is actually true for any “client initiated connection” when it comes to iptables – not just MySQL slaves. That’s just where I stumbled across the issue.
Ran into a little issue at work and decided to write up some things to keep in mind when you have multiple masters with slaves behind each individual master.
The blog software this site uses included an RSS feed, and I added RSS feeds for the SCUBA and Gallery sites. I go over RSS feeds and their use, and my experiences involved in developing my own. Portions of the article (particularly near the end) will touch on some of the more technical parts to website development.
