Lookatbowen now hosted on Linux.
Lookatbowen is now hosted on a linux box Distro UBUNTU 5.1 – I have also successfully installed XAMPP 1.5.0 and it is all working perfectly, as you can see. Ubuntu is pretty damm awesome! I never realized Linux was so good up until now. This particular package has everything and it took just under 20 minutes to install, which beats installing Windows XP by a mile.
However, it did take a few hours to configure Apache2.0 and PHP5.1.0 and to make everything secure. I’ve also managed to Embedded Gallery 2 into WordPress 1.5.2. and have migrated everything from Windows XP.
I still have to get my head around where everything is located, or installed, but the file system and command line is pretty cool. 🙂 – I can’t quite figure out how to create executables, if anyone can shed some light on this, it would be much appreciated. I am trying to install FFMPEG and IMAGEMAGICK.
The last thing I want to do is link Google Maps to my Gallery, which I’ve seen on some sites. But that will be another time.
So it’s all good. I can’t believe how easy it was. (Windows to Linux). Highly recommended…
