HowTo Wiki

Notes, mostly technical on how to configure, install, troubleshoot computer systems.

I've chosen topics mostly because I went through the process of selecting, installing and configuring something, usually a software application, tool or and utilities. They are here primarily so that I can consult them when needed and refer others to them.

Ubuntu Linux

My home server, running Win2K, failed to reboot after it's last update. The problem turned out to be a bad disk. I decided to abandon Windows and go with Linux. Most of my experience has been with Red Hat, but a friend had praised Ubuntu, so I decided to give it a try. I wanted:

  1. A file server with enough capacity to handle our household -- two people who do a medium amount of photo work, a lot of office work, no music and an occasional video.
  2. Accessibility from outside
  3. A web server running Apache, php and mySQL
  4. Immunity from power failure -- orderly shutdown and restart
