Getting postfix relay to work with godaddy.com

Alhamdullillah after days (and I mean literally days because each day I can spend only a few minutes on this problem) I have finally got it working. To set up postfix to use relay with authentication, just ask the oracle. But to get it working with godaddy? I finally gave up and sent them an email. And in their reply was my answer:
Username: Your full email address (i.e. person@domain.com)
Outgoing Mail Server: smtpout.secureserver.net
Outgoing Mail Server Port: 25, 80, or 3535.

And so first I tested the ports. After telneting the host and ports I finally decided that most probably would work best because the server response has the word 'auth' in it (I have no idea whether it's even relevant or not). Anyhow changed it my /etc/postfix/main.cf to use the 3535 port:
relayhost = smtpout.secureserver.net:3535

And the most important part is the username. It is person@domain.com. It is the person@domain.com you registered your free mailbox with. Not your login name to godaddy. Use the email address. And then run postmap, restart postfix, and viola, it is sending mail and those mails don't just get dumped into trash. Fuh...

Dell Inspiron Mini 9

Yesterday went to Low Yat to buy my cousin a sub RM 1500 notebook. Of course with that kind of price tag it would have to be a netbook jelah. Anyhow, I was short on time so I didn't get to browse thoroughly. Just went for one quick round around level 2 and picked the one that I thought would fulfil his need. The thing is, as soon as I stepped out of the lift there was a shop that sold the new Dell Inspiron Mini 9 for only RM 1199. I was suprised. Just 1199. I couldn't believe my eyes. With original Windows XP and all. RM 1199. I thought there must be something wrong. Better survey first. So went around level 2. There was nothing that could match that price. Most of the other netbook from acer, asus and lenovo even was around RM 1600. So I decided I'll just go with the Dell lah. But to tell you the truth if I had money to buy for my own use, I'd go with the Lenovo Ideapad S10. Fuh.. she's one sweet mama... Smooth rounded curves, slim white profile. Pergh.. But anywa…

Installing Centos 7 on HP G7 Server

When I first initially tried it, the installer cannot detect any local hard disk to install to. After much googling found out that it was because a certain driver for the Smart Array Controller is no longer available on Centos 7. To allow for use of the new driver on old hardware, you need to enable the option. Once the DVD has booted and on the first menu screen, highlight the first option and then press tab which would bring you to a command line where you can add additional parameters to boot. Add the following parameters: hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 hpsa.hpsa_simple_mode=1 And then press enter to boot. You should now be able to install as you wish. After installation, on the first boot, make sure at the menu, press 'e' to edit the parameters and add them again. Then once booted, go to /boot/grub2/grub.cfg to permanently add the parameters to the menu. Refer to http://serverfault.com/questions/611182/centos-7-x64-and-hp-proliant-dl360-g5-scsi-controller-compatibility and it&#…

haproxy on Centos 7 with SELinux

Setting up haproxy and varnish with reference to the configuration from these sites: http://sharadchhetri.com/2014/12/20/how-to-install-varnish-4-version-on-centos-7-rhel-7/ https://www.upcloud.com/support/haproxy-load-balancer-centos/ And finally can access plone on the server. But when I check the haproxy status, only client1 can be accessed. All other clients were down with general socket error, permission denied. Googling a bit I finally found out it was due to SELinux. Refer to this page: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/26420729/haproxy-health-check-permission-denied With the solution from that page, I installed policycoreutils-python and tried to run the command given: semanage port --add --type http_port_t --proto tcp 8081 But that command failed with the error that the port was already defined. When I looked it up using: semanage port -l | grep 8081 It belonged to some other type (transproxy_port_t). When I tried to delete the type using: semanage port -d -t transpro…
