Each site has a different username (login/password) for administration. Additionally I have changed the ssh port to a different number (instead […]

I spend way too much time and effort tweaking my SpamAssassin settings on my server just so I can get my email and spam situation manageable.

Since the release of FC5, the dependancies and outdated linking from the FC3 RPM packages may be difficult […]

Currently shared hosting services are highly competitive. If you shop around you can find great deals to host a simple website most with a comprehensive feature set. However these are all […]
