Be very careful about what filename you specify in dhcpd.conf if you get an error like this:
NBP filesize is 0 Bytes PXE-E23:Client received TFTP error from server.
If you specify "BOOTx64.efi" then the file had better not be called "BOOTx64.EFI" as it is case sensitive. It's really a case of th........
This is an ongoing issue even with the latest Thunderbird 102.x where attachments downloaded via IMAP just won't save or will be corrupt which is a huge interruption to workflow or if you come back later to find out the file you thought you saved is invalid/corrupt and you have perhaps deleted the e-mail.
How to solve the Thunderbird filesize attachment issue?
1. Click on "Settings". then go to "General".
2. Scroll to the bottom to find "Conf........
This is a common issue when e-mailing or uploading video files.
One note is that you should make the filesize you choose below about 20% smaller than you need. For example I took a 219MB video and told it to be 20M. The resulting file was still about 21.9M but it was OK when I said 18M and was barely below the 20M size.
ffmpeg is our friend here, just use this command:
Change the -fs 100Mto the size you want eg. 20M, 500M
This really gives me a bad impression of SolusVM.
I tried the "Central Backup" option and it does not warn that your server gets shutdown instantly in order to do the backup!
Further, there is no way to pause or cancel the backup. Thankfully this is a test/small disk usage VPS but what if someone was running something production with a large filesize?
Ihaven't used QuickBackup but hope that isn't the same thing.

Not sure what rsync switches/options to use?
The short version would be:
I think these are really common sense options to use and probaby should be the default.
Explanation of rsync switches
P = display the progress
D = hybrid of --specials and --devices so all special and device files will be copied as well.
r = recursive (otherwise rsync won't copy files deeper than........
Before we start I take no responsibility for this, you should have a backup and if you make a mistake during this process you could wipe out all of your data. So backup somewhere else before starting this as a precaution, or make sure it's data you could afford to lose.
The RAID 1 Setup (Hardware Wise)
I've already setup my 2 x 1TB (Seagate) drives with identical partitions, make sure your new hard drive (the empty one) is setup like your curr........
I have no idea why but mkfs.ext3 defaults to a patheticlly small blocksize of 1024 bytes/1KB (kilobyte). That means the maximum filesize is ONLY 16GB! With 2KB/2048 bytes you get a 256 GB maximum filesize, and with 4KB/4096 bytes you get 2TB!
I finally noticed/paid attention to this after realizing that with rsync and scp that no file larger than 17GB could be transferred. I then realized it must be a file size limit on the partition.
Here is what tune2fs tol........
The folder I was trying to archive is about 72GB, but much like rsync at about 17GB it chokes because of the filesize. What's with so many common and essential Linux tools having such limitations? I guess it is likely that the authors never wrote their code with the idea that files would be so large but it's still very annoying. It's important to stay on top of these limitations on production servers because I didn't realize what happened until I checked the file with "........
