Free Software Servers

NOTE: You have possibly been redirected here due to old URL's on the internet that no longer point to the correct page. I have migrated my site away from Wordpress to Atlassian Confluence Enterprise Wiki software. I use Jira to keep track of my ongoing projects and WordPress wasn't suiting my needs for what I wanted. Moving to Confluence just seemed like a natural progression. All the content should still be here, and due to the this sites great layout, I doubt you will have a hard time finding it!

Just another Linux/Server blog.. with some other stuff thrown in there! - 100% NOT FOR PROFIT

About This Site:

This site is just a place for me to share the technology related hurtles I have overcome. Once you get into using the CLI, you realize how important it is to document things! With that being said, nothing on here is guaranteed to work, or even be correct! Take it as you will. Most of what I write is taken from other guides and mix-n-matched for what works for me. Also, almost all my guides will be extremely short and to the point, not a lot of explaining the code. I LOVE short guides, so that's what I make :) If I helped, please leave a comment, I enjoy hearing success stories and if you find a problem, please comment as well!


My main OS at the time is Ubuntu 14 x64 LTS Server Edition, but I also use CentOS 7 for anything VoIP or High Availability related. There will be some content in here related to Windows, but 99% of the content will be either Linux Server or Hypervisor related content.


I also run my own VMWare ESXI server and I am a die-hard fan of virtualizing everything and VMWare ESXI. My first server I built everything right on the hardware and if I ever messed up, or wanted to start fresh, I had to rebuild my entire eco-system. This was a huge hindrance as every time I get something to work, I like to do it again to make sure I understand it and my notes are correct. Virtualization has vastly improved my ability to test things and decrease my downtime.



About Me:

I fell in love with Linux and servers while studying for Computer Networking Associates in the CENT program at Honolulu Community College. I spend way to much time learning about Linux,servers and finding technological things to learn, but it has started to pay off! I currently work as the only dedicated Network Operations guy at my work. 

Outside of servers and Linux, I enjoy walking my dog, travelling, hiking, riding motorcycle and watching anything that starts with "star", but mostly Stargate!
