Moving MySQL Binary Logs to a New LVM Logical Volume

I had a RHEL6 machine with lots of large MySQL binary log files in /var/log/mysql and was in need of more space on that volume. I am running MySQL 5.5 from IUS.

Step one: unmount the logical volume

Not strictly necessary for a rename but a nice precaution.

How to Change an SVN Commit Message Retroactively

$conf['page_compression'] = FALSE

2. Logging into the site using Firefox (not Safari) and going to and hitting the Clear All Caches button.


Solved: The updates you are trying to apply are not Dell-authorized updates

When I booted into System Services using F10 on a Dell PowerEdge T710 to run the Platform Update on the LifeCycle Controller (translation: the firmware connects to Dell's FTP site and downloads and installs firmware updates for you) I saw "The updates you are trying to apply are not Dell-authorized updates."

After the initial wry smile about Dell firmware connecting to a Dell site to download Dell drivers and then failing and calling them "not Dell-authorized," I proceeded to do the following:
