So You Start netplan Configuration for Additional IP’s

This took way too long to figure out and it’s my own fault as I do have a good understanding of networking.

When you order additional IP’s from So You Start, you’re usually giving IP’s in a different range the main IP address of your server. This might confuse some because of how traditional networking states you have to be in the same subnet as your gateway.

This causes problems for deploying virtual machines when using Xen and Ubuntu 18 as it has moved over to netplan. The problem lies in the fact you shouldn’t be able to reach your gateway out of your subnet.

So you have to do the following so that netplan is able to understand how to add the gateway properly.

lighttpd won’t start and doesn’t output or log any error message

I was working on a server and for some reason lighttpd wouldn't start for some odd reason. Running it via Debian/Ubuntu "invoke-rc.d lighttpd start" or "/etc/init.d/lighttpd start" wouldn't reveal an error message or anything in the log.

I hop'd on irc.freenode.net and put some information about my problem in the channel #lighttpd channel.

Linksys WRT54G and WRT54GL Being Phased Out?

I went to pick up a Wireless Router from a local computer shop http://www.a-power.com in hopes of grabbing a WRT54GL or at least a WRT54GS. The main reason being that I could flash the hardware to run DD-WRT http://www.dd-wrt.com which is a third part open source router firmware.
