Getting the Big “Oops” from a Server

I had some minor problems with xCache recently that ended up causing segfaults in my apache install. I had left my SSH putty session open last night and didn’t check my laptop before I trecked into the office this morning (yes, some of us bloggers still have 9-5′s). When I got to work, I noticed my server was down. I had to hard reboot it through the IPMI switch at my data center. I removed xCache from my php.ini and things have been solid since.

I came home from work and looked at my putty session and got a good laugh. “Oops” it tells me. haha. I had a good chuckle about it.

  1. After further review, it turns out I had a bad ram stick in the server. I had the datacenter replace the ram and things have been running smooth for a couple days now. Hopefully that’s the end of that, and maybe i’ll try putting xcache back on.
