Linux, MySQL and MoreRSS

These are the interesting tidbits we have encountered that need to be shared with the world. Interesting tips, tricks and general information about Linux, MySQL, PHP and other tech areas.

Move MySQL binlog to another disk or folder
          

This one tripped me up so I hope this helps you. Moving the binlog, relaylog or even the data itself to another drive or folder is really easy as long as you know the secret.

Automatically boot when a RAID is degraded
          

By default, Ubuntu and some other versions of Linux will stop the boot process and prompt you to take action if a degraded RAID is found. On an interactive system, this is fine but on a system that is often unattended this is a problem because it will prevent booting.

How do I renew or release an IP address in Linux?
          

There are a couple ways to renew an IP address using the Linux command line.

Changing the computer name / hostname in Ubuntu, Debian and variants
          

Normally, you only need to set the hostname when you first install Linux. But perhaps a poor name was chosen or an error was made during the install and you need to change it. Well a couple simple file edits will do the trick.
