|I've got this old box which had 64MB of RAM and happily ran Damn Small Linux. The other day I chucked in another 64MB that I rescued from an even older box, so it ain't bad.|
It's quite a powerful server now, even if it's only a Pentium II (or III?) in there. This is just a home server for experimenting on, running PHP 4 (though PHP becomes discontinued at the end of this month!) and Apache 2. Not modern, by any means, but most websites are still with Apache 184.108.40.206 - maybe for the cool factor.
I'm quite pleased with it and I hope to learn a lot from it. I've never really had the chance to go right to the root and edit php.ini, httpd.conf and see all the logs, etc. First thing I did was turn register_globals off
I tried to setup webmin for remote access. I can view the pages on my home network, but I can't edit them from there yet. I needed to install perl...
Well, a headache and two hours later...
"Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have reached an impossible situation" it tells me!
Oh package dependency hell! I haven't had to deal with that since Ubuntu 6.06!
Maybe I'll just get up and WALK to the machine to update it then! lol

|Yippie! I got basic SSH working, so I'm remotely editing it with vi. Hardly ideal, but not too bad.|
Does anyone know how I'd set up FTP without installing one of those control panels?
|edit| Nevermind - I found a way! FileZilla can do FTP through SSH, which is very neat indeed! |edit|

|yep!, its madness silly! |
I guess you will have to get off your butt
and walk over to update your machine and server stuff.
I guess putting in an extra 64 megabytes took to
much not of your machine but you, yourself.
You need an upgrade too.
So, walk! inorder to upgrade.
