I did get something good out of this whole fiasco. When I think of it, this blog being down for a day or so is a small price to pay for the amount of knowledge that I gained relating to setting up apache, mysql, and php… Over and Over Again.

Let me know if there are problems that you see.

I’m pretty sure that mail is all screwed up because I have no mail server, or at least I hope that I don’t (I uninstalled it).

However, that’s something that I’m going to work on next. I’m going to try to find a new mail solution, at least until a stable release of Hula comes out.

I’m a pretty picky customer when it comes to mail servers. I want a mail server that’s got a lot of easy to use documentation, so it might be a while until the jonhoweonline.com mx record is active again…

Some other things that I’ll be working on:

  • Running my own DNS
  • Setting up mod-rewrite for apache / drupal. This will make it so that instead of this site saying www.jonhoweonline.com/me/?q=node/1 it will say www.jonhoweonline.com/me/node/1
  • I am going to be starting an open source Content Management System (CMS) project with (primarily) a couple of my friends, so I’m going to get a cvs server up and running.
  • I hope to have some turorials out for all of those at some point or another,so stay posted!

    Later, and thanks for sticking with me,
    Jon Howe
