Silly but This Is a WordPress Blog Running on Kubernetes

You probably think it’s an overkill to use Kubernetes for a WordPress blog with less than a thousand monthly visitors. While this may be true, it’s totally worth using Kubernetes for the bragging rights. This is a WordPress blog running on Kubernetes!

Minecraft Server Memory Issues on Linux

Are you having memory leak issues with your Minecraft Server on Linux? The solution might be in this post. I’ve been running a MC server on my VPS (HeartInternet) for the last 4 months. It was all good until we started exploring the map. The MC server was randomly being killed and this message was coming up in our screen:

Internal Exception: java.io.IOException: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

Why Linux is Better as a Server Compared to Windows

As a web developer having experience on Windows and Linux, I prefer to work on Linux servers. Here are the reasons why (for CentOS – might not be same for all distributions):

  1. Viewing error and access logs
  2. No need to waste RAM
  3. Many free tools
  4. Easier to access remotely
  5. No need to reboot Continue reading Why Linux is Better as a Server Compared to Windows
