I have a pressing need to dedicate a couple of IP addresses on a server to be outside nginx control. But I cannot get nginx to stop grabbing all the IP addresses in a wildcard.
I tracked the setting responsible to ~root/.barracuda.cnf and changed, then downloaded BOA and applied upgrades to both barracuda and octopus .. even after several restarts of nginx, I still have the same situation. It is claiming all IP addresses on the server.
This is creating a major issue for me right now ..
Hope someone can point me to how I can resolve it quickly.
Thanks in advance ...
PS: On another note, I believe one of the xdrago scripts takes care of aggressively monitoring nginx and restarting it immediately it see its down (probably second.sh) .. If I wanted to do some maintenance and keep nginx down for some time, what's the quickest way to ensure nginx is not restarted immediately?
