New linux community website
Posted December 8, 2006on:
I feel that I want to give something back to the linux community, I have now been using Linux (properly) for about a year, I have tried differant distro’s (or ‘flavours’) of linux, I first starting playing around with Suse (9.2) about 3 years ago, I did like it and found it a great alternative to the Windows OS. However as most of my friends and key applications that I use run on Windows I always seemed to stick with Windows. In the last year I have started running several web servers both currently run on Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper Drake) I love it, its awesome!
I love the power and heritage that linux carries, I therefore plan to rebuild my ‘uk.homeunix.org’ server with the LAMP install and then start hosting a CMS system, possibly a web blog that contains ton’s of Linux howto’s and tips.
Not quite sure yet, but this is something that I would like to do and get a hugh user base and forums on there. I plan to then install maybe ‘IPB’ – Invision power board as I have the package and a proper license for the board, so thats all good. The only problems that I am currently having is with SMTP services running from the server this is cruical for sending emails from the board for subscribed forums etc.
I currently have the server live running Ubuntu on home broadband (2MB) however its not really doing much and its a shame to see such a powerful server go to waste (2.6GHz AMD Operton, 1.5GB RAM) etc.
