This is my attempt at guiding new webmasters (like myself) through the setup process of setting up a simple web server for friends and family (and possibly, with a little bit of creativity on your side, a full-blown web host like those you usually pay for). I will provide commands to execute in the Linux terminal, the programs needed, and some programs that I would highly suggest….

Thank You.

So, I just setup my laptop to run my own little HTTP server (called the Hildreth Server) so that friends and family can have access to ALL of my pictures in their full resolution glory. If you didn’t catch it before, it’s hosted on a laptop, so downtime will surely be there. It’s live whenever my laptop is on and connected to the internet. The address is http://sendderek.dyndns.org and I have included that link in the blogroll (on the right hand side of this page) for easy access. The only unfortunate side of this server is that it’s only going to be here until April, so you’d better take advantage of it now.

On the Hildreth Server, you’ll find it’s quite simple. There are a few links to various places included my pictures folder as well as my music folder. Also, there are a few links to some of my other places online. Here’s a screenshot for proof:

Now, there are some restrictions to the website. I didn’t want all of my pictures/music up for the whole world to see, so they have been password protected. If you are family or a friend, then you should have gotten the e-mail with the username and password for both places. If you’ve lost it, contact me with an email or instant message and I’ll get it to you again.

Thanks for checking it out!

For those geeks of you wondering, it’s powered by Apache and Fedora 8 Linux. I may write up a tutorial on how to setup your own webserver later. If you have any requests, just let me know.

Here’s the problem: you’ve used F-spot before to keep track of all your photos and for some reason (distro upgrade or re-importing) you needed to import those photos again into F-Spot. It should be easy, but unfortunately, you were met with a nasty “object reference not set to an instance of an object” message. This happened to me in F-Spot version 4.0. So, to investigate, I followed these bugs: ….

This is a tutorial on how to get VirtualBox up and running on Fedora 8. If you havn’t yet, add yourself as a “sudoer” by visiting the tutorial this page. Also, this tutorial is for the 32-Bit version of VirtualBox, so you’ll have to customize a little more to get the 64-bit version running (as pointed out in the comments). Everything in the “code” sections should be copy/pasted/typed into the terminal. Right, let’s get to it:

A gem of innovative and cutting-edge technology has been found emerging from the settling dust storm that was Ubuntu 7.10 called Fedora 8 “Werewolf”. It’s due to be released on November 8th and there is a plethora of very exciting things about it that may convince users (including myself) to make a switch. Here are only some of the highlights:

  • Enhanced Laptop Support
  • Enhanced Bluetooth
  • Enhanced Wireless Networking
  • Codec Buddy
  • Electronics Lab
  • IcedTea (OpenSource Java Alternative)
  • Pulse Audio
  • Tickless Kernel
  • Online Desktop

For more, visit http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/8/FeatureList or http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/8/ReleaseSummary.

Needless to say, I will be making a partition for this jewel to experience it for myself. If you would like to as well, keep your eye out on the download links that will appear on the front page of http://fedoraproject.org/ when November 8th rolls around the corner.
