shutdown order

Isn't the shutdown order just set by the symbolic links at /etc/rc0.d/ ? And the reboot ones at /etc/rc6.d/ for reboot ?? The only thing is... I don't see a symbolic link to shut down mysql so likely it is happening external to this before everything else? !? Or possibly the error has to do with net...

converting to innoDB in phpmyadmin

By the instruction to "Switch the Events, Frames and Stats tables engine..." from phpmyadmin, I assume that it is necessary to do a Query: ALTER TABLE `Events` ENGINE=InnoDB; ALTER TABLE `Frames` ENGINE=InnoDB; ALTER TABLE `Stats` ENGINE=InnoDB; Is that so?... because I looked forever for a way to d...

Fresh database

One additional question: What if I wanted to create a new database for ZM from scratch? What would be the process to do something like that and hopefully create it as a InnoDB from the get-go? There is nothing precious in the existing DB so I thought that it might be useful for others to know, as we...

Thanks

Thanks for that. I will likely switch over to InnoDB but I am not sure that is the problem that I'm having. First off I have a UPS so except for my initial testing, I haven't had the server shut down abruptly. The UPS software does an orderly shutdown per the installed software (apcupsd). Second, wh...

Server crashes regularly

I have a fairly powerfully equipped ZM 1.24.2 box set up running on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server with a UPS and 4GB of ram. The server seems to come to a complete stop about once per week and I find evidence of mysql errors in the logs although thorough database checks find nothing wrong. After looking a...

Thanks for that. I actually thought about doing that: set the system clock to my local time and skip having it corrected. I am connected to the internet and don't care too much about time drift so that might be a good way for me to go. Still, it seems like an option in ZM might be worth investigatin...

time zone is hard coded? Really??

So is it that EVERYONE using ZM is storing UTC time and timestamping with it? Somehow that seems hard to believe but I suppose that is possible. I'll take a look at that code and see what you mean. Hopefully it is easy to figure out and not nebulous with regard to timestamp related functionality. Pe...

How to have ZM use local time for timestamps, etc.

I would like to have timestamps and events tagged using my LOCAL TIME ZONE's time instead of GMT/UTC time. How is that accomplished? I am using ZM 1.24.2 on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server and everything is working, for the most part, but when I just checked the local and UTC system time on the command line...
