Linux is NOT Windows In the following article, I refer to the GNU/Linux OS and various Free & Open-Source Software (FOSS) projects under the catch-all name of "Linux". It scans better. If you've been pointed at this page, then the chances are you're a relatively new Linux user who's having some problems making the switch from Windows to Linux. This causes many problems for many people, hence this article was written. Many individual issues arise from this single problem, so the page is broken down into multiple problem areas. Problem #1: Linux isn't exactly the same as Windows. You'd be amazed how many people make this complaint. The specific reasons why people try Linux vary wildly, but the overall reason boils down to one thing: They hope Linux will be better than Windows. Therein lies the problem. It is logically impossible for any thing to be better than any other thing whilst remaining completely identical to it. No. Problem #2: Linux is too different from Windows Quite true. Problem #3: Culture shock d5w

10 Million hits a day with Wordpress using a $15 server | Ewan's Blog on IT and stuff like it [Update 2] – It seems W3 Total Cache support has been silently discontinued – it’s not been updated for over 12 months now, and has allegedly got some security issues. Because of this, I would recommend not installing W3 Total Cache as part of these instructions, everything else should run fine. [/Update] [Update] – I’ve tested this using the new Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Edition, and the settings all appear to work correctly without modification. [Update September 2013] – I’ve recently moved my own blog hosting to a $10 a month VPS from Digital Ocean (that link gets you a $10 discount via an affiliate link) and have been very happy with them, including the performance of the blog. 10 Million hits per day with WordPress on a $15 virtual server Install Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric) on a new virtual private server- it needs to be 11.10 for all the packages that I’m going to list to work out of the box, but it’s all possible to do with other distributions. Login to the server and become root mysql -u root -p

Ext2 IFS For Windows Dr.M.Vadivale's Homepage - Vads Corner Deploy Orchard CMS to Azure - LiteMedia It's no secret that I'm working on a replacement for this blog in Orchard CMS, and while doing so, learning to deploy applications to Azure. There is a guide provided by the Orchard Team, but it takes for granted that you're using Orchard as a plug'n'play CMS and not as a development platform. Here's a small recollection of my findings. The Orchard CMS is pointed at the Wordpress audience, comfortable with just installing a blog platform, choose theme, widgets and be up and running without any thought on code, deployment or testing. Project structure As a developer I want to have my project setup in Visual Studio. When it comes to compiling you will notice that there are a whole bunch of binaries in the bin-folder that "has to be there".
