Cleaning Server IP From Yahoo Blacklist

Two days ago I filling form on Yahoo abuse department website to ask Them to whitelist RevTI’s server IP from Yahoo blacklist. Because the IP is blacklisted by Yahoo all email from RevTI server to Yahoo mail are delivered to Bulk Folder which have a big chance not being readed by the recepient.

I get a reply email with a quisionare that I must sent back to Yahoo, I fill it and sent it back to Yahoo. Today I got a notification email from Yahoo that They will do check on all email from RevTI’s server to Yahoo mail.

I tried to send an email to My own Yahoo mail, it seems that RevTI’s server IP is not blacklisted anymore, but Yahoo’s checking still in progress I guess as I not yet receive Their confirmation that RevTI’s server pass the checking.

Crossing My Fingers :)

Installing APC

Today I installing APC – Alternative PHP Cache – it’s another caching software for PHP to speedup the interpreting time by caching it in binary form. APC are maintained by the creator of PHP, Rasmus Lerdorf.

Different with eAcceleator that I try to install before – see My post “Tweaking RevTI’s Server” – APC seems working with PHP that installed as CLI or CGI (said people from a forum I joined).

Let Me see the result..

Tweaking RevTI’s Server

This afternoon – Netherland time – RevTI server got a big hit from users. The server’s load goes up to 45! its very very busy. Alot of HTTP request comes to Apache so it takes alot of CPU time and memory.

Tonight I was planned to tweak Apache, MySQL and PHP. I guess My last tweak on MySQL causes it takes alot of memory so I change it back to old configuration. Re-configure again the Apache and then install eAccelerator a PHP cache software.

eAccelerator function is to cache the PHP binary code each a PHP script executed and interpreted, so the PHP interpreter didn’t need to interpreted the same PHP script again. Its save time, CPU and memory resources.

I download and install eAccelerator. The installation was succeed, PHP running great, all website that use PHP running, seems no problem occured. Then I check the eAccelerator temporary directory where cached PHP script supposed to be, but the folder is empty while I already access PHP based website on the server, so I guess it should be more than one file there.

Then I know the reason.. unfortunetly I install PHP as CGI which is not supported by eAccelerator. eAccelerator only support PHP that installed as Apache module. Sad :( but true..

At Last Founder and Co-Founder of RevTI.com Has Met

This post also continuing My post Amsterdam Tourist.

One of My purpose going to Amsterdam is meeting with Jose, Co-Founder of RevTI.com. We already working together for more than 3 years and never met eyes-to-eyes before! :) thanks to the internet.

He show Me several tourism places in Amsterdam, I took alot of pictures there. Amsterdam is a nice city, with alot of beautiful buildings and landscapes.

We then go to Jose’s place. I stay at His place for one night.

On sunday We go to the church, but We are too late.. may be because We got tired after walking around Amsterdam – just as an excuse of Our laziness :D

Then on the afternoon We play football with other Indonesian youth that study in Netherland. Well, I don’t like football so I can’t play it, just play for 10 minutes and then I switch My role to a good spectator :p

Below is a picture of Me and Jose in Amsterdam:
