Web Server for Sale

I just upgraded my web server and selling my old one. This computer was in perfect working order when I took it offline on 02-12-2003. Its 14 months old – homemade by me – and was serving 1.5 million hits a day (Running Linux) when it needed to be upgraded.

Like selling an old friend.

It’s a 2U box – Pentuim 4 processor at 2.4ghz. Has one gig of ram. ntel motherboard. Gig Ethernet. and a pair of Western Digital 7200 RPM 8mb buffer drives. CD and Floppy built in.

Its a good strong computer. It was running Radhat Fedora Linux with a custom 2.6.2 kernel. You can install anything you want.

I’m located in San Bruno and can deliver it anywhere in the bay area. If you need to I can – for a fee – set it up for you and install it in a server farm somewhere. This is what I do for a living so a home made server built by me is built right. 30 day warranty.

I’m in the San Francisco area and prefer to sell it locally.

You can’t sell the old server. It has sentimental value. My little site went from 30 visitors a month to 1500 a day on that old server.

How much?

Does it have Raid? How big are the hard drives? Does it need updating? Thank you

Are you still selling this server or have others?

Thank you
