      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

  5. Webdav issues: Owncloud

    I don't know owncloud, but my first guess is apache Directory directive example: <Directory "/home/owncloud/data/"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride All Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory> it's the allow from all that's the important bit. apache needs to own the directory AND be told that requests can be made to that directory.
  6. to get easyurpmi code

    sorry, this code is not owned by us, you will need to directly contact the easyurpmi team.
  7. Web site/page development

    strictly a vi guy me I have used an "app" for web development in .. sheesh .. since about 1999 maybe ? as ian mentions, you can get the code directly from joomla, if you wrap it with a package manager, crazy stuff can happen come update time.

  9. Mailx, nail, Command line client

    I install nullmailer, and user localhost as smtp (that way I can also use it to send system emails like logwatch, back up notifications etc) then configure nullmailer to use whatever smtp service cat /etc/nullmailer/remotes mail.domain.nz smtp --user=smtp@domain.nz --pass=mysecretpassword

    are you talking PCIe ? if so yes .. easy if you're talking PCI, good luck finding one. the only dependency is your motherboard. If your motherboard has AGP and PCIe then your can swap find.
  12. Updating RAID set

    don't suppose you're using lvm on top of that raid set are you? lvmextend would do the trick

I have an svn server for files (important stuff) Have an iPad mainly for watching videos in bed nowadays :) I bought "air share" for iOS and have an air share server running on my media box which is under my TV (which runs ubuntu and xbmc) Have an android phone for my daily social network whoring :) and email etc
