home server

InformatiQ - Sat, 22/12/2007 - 8:24pm
I finally got my home box up, so far it used for testing out drupal, download files
well i want to make it a some sort of online desktop
not as in a web os way, but more like a google space for me, it will have
  • all my files (photos, music, documents, etc...) -> google docs/photos OR webDAV
  • bookmarks -> same as docs so far
More advanced features might be included in phase 2
  • shell access (in case i die and go to hell) -- mainly for ssh access to other places -> PHPShell

quick smtp server

InformatiQ - Sat, 22/12/2007 - 7:43pm
I needed a quick smtp server t osend out emails from my drupal installation, so here is the "quick & dirty" way to do it
I decided to use postfix, the choices were sendmail, postfix, qmail and exim but sinse i have no experience whatsoever with exim i took it out, qmail is too much for such a small task (although i recommend it for high load servers) sendmail is too comples to configure, so that leaves me with postfix
all u need to do is
