Its been more than 3 years since I got my own domain name to host my website ie., www.stylesen.org Since I started my website it was hosted by one of my ex-colleague in his shared server (CentOS?). Today I moved www.stylesen.org to a new server (Debian Lenny) which has lots of space and unlimited bandwidth for me. Lets see how it goes! should closely watch the differences on this move.

Recently I moved stylesen.org to a different server and had the problem of logging in which resulted in a "access denied" error. After searching in drupal forums I came to know about this - http://drupal.org/node/93945

Today I opened my Firefox 3.5 browser and saw an option which allows me to restore sessions selectively in case if there is any problems which is great! Kudos to firefox developers.

Recently Yahoo changed the way in which we connect to the IM, which broke Pidgin clients in Debian Lenny and Ubuntu systems, specifically pidgin client version 2.5.7 and below. We can correct it by doing the following if you don't want to upgrade your clients to something latest, Go to your yahoo account settings in Pidgin. You'll see two tabs at the top. Go to the second tab(advance). There you'll find, "scs.msg.yahoo.com" and a few other web addresses change it to *cn.scs.msg.yahoo.com*. Thanks to Vipin M of AU-KBC who gave this piece of info via ILUGC mailing list.

On last Friday ie., 05-06-2009, http://dev.tce.edu/ went live with "Redmine". The previous "trac" based site was replaced with Redmine, considering the ease of administering projects with a web interface. The alpha run (April 25th, 2009) of Redmine site was served using FCGI over apache which was very slow and the performance was not up to the mark. But now we run the production site using mod_rails over apache2 which is faster! Also the subversion repository creation is automated
