Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and software development
After thirteen years of hosting this blog at Kattare.com, I've moved it over to DigitalOcean. Kattare was great, but nowadays I prefer managing my own server and DigitalOcean makes that very easy -- and costs less ($10/month vs. $26/month at Kattare).
The move was easy, or as easy as setting up OpenJDK 8, Tomcat 7 and MySQL 5.5 can be. I only hit one little snag. Once I added the Roller WAR to Tomcat, Tomcat would hang on startup. I used jstack to look at the Java VM threads and found some clues that led me to a post on ServerFault.com: Tomcat 7 hangs on deploying apps. As recommended in that post, I added
-Djava.security.egd=file:/dev/./urandom to my CATALINA_OPTS and was back in action.
