Hello all. I have a remote dedicated server running ubuntu 64bit server edition. I have installed lamp, ionCube, ftp and freenx and configured apache2 so i can add a couple of sites should i want to. I also have a teamspeak3 and shoutcast servers running.
But i'm having problems connecting to port 22 with putty and nx. It was fine untill i tried to install a few things that i didn't like/need and then uninstalled them. In short theres loads of orphan crap files on there and somethings messing with that port as far as i know. My site workes fine but its no good if i cant access the server to install other things i want like game servers etc.
My provider suggested backing up my files and re installing ubuntu which i can do through my control panel with the provider. This installs what ever operating system i want and ssh by default. I then get an email with my putty root details and a blank canvass to play with. :lol:
As far as IPB goes i need to know what to do to re instate my server once lamp/ioncube is re installed. I have saved my ipb mysql database and all the IPB files to my local pc. Will it be enough to just put them back and reload the database after i have apache configured again?
To be honest its a new site and we was ironing out a few things before we started promoting it and we only have a few members at present but i'd like to keep the current layout/skins/posts and members etc once the server is cleaned up.
Any advice on what i need to do would be appreciated. Thanks =ChAoS=
I managed to get a putty connection and ran => apt-get autoremove This removed a hell of a lot of unused/orphaned files and i then disconnected putty and reconected instantly. Hopefully this as cured my issues bit only time will tell. I would still appreciate an asnwer to my above question just incase it doesn't and for future reference.
Just reupload the files and the database. Then checkt hat the global config file is correct. You might need to recache some things, but everything should be fine.
