  1. Name: apcupsd Version: 3.10.18-3mdk Architecture: i586 Size: 9274 KB Summary: Power management software for APC UPS hardware sounds like an old UPS and you have 2 PC's on it ?
  2. taking an ms access db and importing it into MySql server does not get any easier than this http://www.mysql.com/products/tools/migration-toolkit/ it's free
  3. i agree with ianw1974 i use squid also and think it's great configuring squid through the control console is the easiest way to configure squid another option is to use "webmin" you'll find more granular control via webmin and i'd recommend using SARG also to generate reports of squid access by IP that can be viewed online
  4. hindsight is always easy and priceless
  5. cut out the middle-man and use a mysql connector type thing to plain old access the db over the net verifing that works and worry about the php later mysql has one or two that you can pop right in withan rpm and i know there are many others to use , the names aren't coming to me right now
  6. upgrading is a bad path for established servers an upgrade re-wrtites your config files for servers My latest effort
  7. network connectivity to mysql is disabled by default change the param in my.cnf # Don't listen on a TCP/IP port at all. This can be a security enhancement, # if all processes that need to connect to mysqld run on the same host. # All interaction with mysqld must be made via Unix sockets or named pipes. # Note that using this option without enabling named pipes on Windows # (via the "enable-named-pipe" option) will render mysqld useless! # #skip-networking
  8. i would suggest not using 254 for a pc on the lan but rather for the router 0-255 is the range...can't use 0 or 255 1st ip and last IP is usually used for a lan device check the logs in /var/logs/messages to see if hints are there
  9. pay some attention to your logs . check them all out including: /webmin/system/systemlogs/messages or /var/log/messages add httpd error_log to webmin and/or httpd access if not there logs help troubleshooting aside from seeing ip traffic
  10. redhat 6.0 it was not love at first sight but i stll have the cd
  11. marketing they could try it and see how it works out .
  12. I 'll be going to linux world boston next week .anyone else going ? i know who won't be there ....MANDRIVA go figure... third year in a row for me and I haven't seen MD there once.
  13. i'll look this weekend for 9 and or 9.1 i might have it somewhere
  14. dns sends the traffic to your router the router sends the traffic to the box you told the router to send the traffic to (port25) for email (port 80) for http the mail server you choose on the linux box needs to know what domain names to accept email for and send email from . defaults will use the current linux box name . so you need to edit the mail server config file . install "webmin" on the linux box to simplify managing and configuring these servers
  15. you configure the records for the dot com to use ns2.zoneedit.com (for example ) as the DNS servers . you can use a client at your house to notify the dns servers if and when your IP changes . it's free and yes mail works too . you add a record for the mail server even if it;'s the same linux box i...e.. mynew.com mail.mynew.com or mx.mynew.com if your IP rarely changes you are done if you are dynamic and it changes you need to configure an updating client to keep track of the ip changes zoneedit recommends some clients i use ddclient on my linux box what you are doing at this point is driving traffic to your router . you set your router to handle the requests and send the traffic to whatever local IP you have assigned for the mail or http or whatever .. do not use dhcp locally, set static numbers . i.e.. http port 80 or mail port 25 you set this is the routers config make sure your PC is static locally .
