Things I’ve learned

My last two days have been for lack of a better word, educational.

I know that I’ve been raving about how Hula is so awesome, and it truly is. A few days ago however, I found a new mail server called Zimbra. Zimbra is Seriously Awesome. It’s got a ton of AJAX built in. I can’t say how awesome it “looked”. Okay, enough on how great it is.

Zimbra looked good enough that I decided to install it on my personal server, which this blog runs on as well. When I actually installed it I went through the normal installation procedure, and started up the server. I saw how sweet the admin interface was, and then decided to post here how awesome it is.

I typed in my blogs address into firefox and to my dismay, it failed to load, with an apache tomcat error!! For those of you who know about Linux webservers, apache tomcat, is not a standard webserver for html files, it’s a server for Java Servlet Packages.

The installation of this package completely took control of my server, disabling mysql, and my webserver which runs apache2.

It took me a while to figure out what was wrong and fix it. That’s just one of those things that you just say to yourself, “I’ll never do that again”.

I also learned that it’s always a good idea to be prepared time wise when you’re 1. in an area that you’re not familiar with. 2. it’s dark 3. it’s raining. To put it into a short explanation, i had a fun time getting to class tonight.

Anyways, I need back to my classwork.
