VPS 27 Internet Speed Test

NB NOTE below script has been deprecated – refer to VPS 9 Speedtest for updated command lines.

So tonight performed an Internet Speed Test on VPS 27.  Basically it consisted of installing the OOKLA Speedtest on my VPS – a very easy and effortless test to set up.  Looks pretty impressive.  Faster than 99% of Germany.

 Step 2:  CHMOD

Step 4:  CHOWN the script to user and group root
