      Haha, indeed. Btw, strange routing to Cloudflare:
      traceroute to http://www.cloudflare.com (198.41.214.163), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
      1 solusvm7.v.fozzy.com (78.140.191.28) 0.100 ms 0.028 ms 0.026 ms
      2 ae1.10.r2.ams.tc2.nl.iptransit.com (199.59.206.153) 0.686 ms 0.705 ms 0.690 ms
      3 cloudflare.plix.pl (195.182.218.134) 25.225 ms 25.332 ms 25.310 ms
      4 198.41.214.163 (198.41.214.163) 25.212 ms 25.204 ms 25.251 ms

      It goes to Poland, though CF has node in Amsterdam.

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
