John’s PHP Extension library

Note to self: my PHP extension is here: jj5@tact:/home/jj5/repo/git/git.php.net/php-src/ext/pext

The .so file (shared object) is in modules/pext.so

I linked it in like this:

-------------------
Sun May 23 13:44:22
root@tact:/usr/lib/php/20170718
# ln -s /home/jj5/repo/git/git.php.net/php-src/ext/pext/modules/pext.so .
-------------------

Configured it like this:

-------------------
Sun May 23 13:44:47
root@tact:/usr/lib/php/20170718
# cat /etc/php/7.2/cli/conf.d/pext.ini

extension=pext.so

-------------------

And I can build it like this:

-------------------
Sun May 23 13:51:37
jj5@tact:/home/jj5/repo/git/git.php.net/php-src/ext/pext
$ make clean && make

Replace a disk in a ZFS pool

So smartd is suddenly emailing me about problems with one of the disks in my ZFS zpool. I have ordered a replacement disk and am waiting for it to arrive. While the smartd email says there is a problem `zpool status` says everything is fine. So I’m running a `zpool scrub` to see if ZFS can pick up on the disk errors.

Preparing for the disk replacement I searched the web and found Replace a disk in a ZFS pool.

I found the serial number of the faulty disk with `lsblk -I 8 -d -o NAME,SIZE,SERIAL`. The process is then:

  1. Shutdown the server
  2. Replace the faulty disk
  3. Boot the server
  4. Run zpool replace: sudo zpool replace data sdc
  5. Check zpool status: sudo zpool status data

I hope it turns out to be that easy! Now I just wait for my scrub to complete and my disk to arrive.
