If you use eAccelerator and have updated your php5 version  you need to recompile the plugin.

First step is to go in to the source listing of your eAccelerator and follow the instructions:

In my case the source is located in /usr/src/.

cd /usr/src/eaccelerator/
make clean
make install

Don’t forget to restart your apache:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

How to put in it in the first place? See article Install and Integrate eAccelerator into PHP5 on Debian Squeeze

The Apache Software Foundation officially released the Apache 2.4 today as the first major update to this leading open-source web-server in more than a half-decade. Apache 2.4 is slated to deliver superior performance to its 2.2 predecessor and better compete with the growingly-popular NGINX web-server.

Besides much faster performance, among the many enhancements to the Apache 2.4 HTTP Server is better a-synchronous support in its core, run-time loadable MPMs, reduced memory usage compared to Apache 2.2.x, several new modules, enhancements to existing modules, and much more.

Apache HTTP Server 2.4 provides a number of improvements and enhancements over the 2.2 version.

Sometimes, while trying to run a query that contains large data size in MySQL, you will receive the following error: “Got packet bigger than ‘max_allowed_packet’ bytes”. This error is very common when dumping, restoring or inserting content that contains blob or large strings of data.

In order to resolve this error, all you need to do is to locate the used my.cnf and increase the max_allowed_packet variable. It is generally recommended to set it to 32M.

On Debian distributions, the cnf file is generally located at /etc/mysql/my.cnf.

To delete the Postfix mail queue use the following command:

root@deb:~# postsuper -d ALL
postsuper: Deleted: 5 messages

You can also use man postsuper command for more options.
