After many many months, I’ve finally moved everything over to a VPS. It has taken forever to get everything up and running exactly the way I wanted it. Ran into a few bumps that delayed the progress but I finally finished. I’ll be making a few articles on configuring services for a VPS or any situation where speed, security and memory usage is important (which should be any place). I’ve upgraded WordPress too and reconfigured everything from scratch since the database upgrade didn’t work for me.
I think the amount of spam that I’ve came across already is insane. Since the 7th of September, I’ve already blocked 106,686 attempts to send mail which got blocked by a DNS block list or was a non existent address. I’ve also blocked 306 relay attempts.
