If you can see two pictures that state their server number, my site is online!
Statement 2010/03/07: I was going to have the server up and running by 2010/03/06, but other circumstances came up. The current server needed to be cleaned out, which that was done. However, the fan is still loud, so it may need to be oiled. :/ And I will remove Windows XP Home yet again for a Linux server install... again. I am rusty on it right now, so that will have to wait.
Statement 2010/03/11: Was trying different versions of Ubuntu Linux for Samba support, but it doesn't cooperate with me on a real machine, yet it worked perfectly on a VM. Nice. Getting openSUSE 11.2 for the main server. However, I will still use Ubuntu on an old Dell desktop in the basement. It will probably hold the MySQL database.
Statement 2010/03/12: Site's online, although PHP and MySQL is not yet enabled. Will think of trying to stabilize the connection as well.
Statement 2010/03/13: Site was offline until today. Is now running Windows 2000 SP3 unpatched. Woo, scary.
Statement 2014/08/12: Four years later. Thing now runs Ubuntu Server. Entire updates are experimental.
Recap: Tried to stabilize the connection under openSUSE Linux, but no dice. Also tried to recompile PHP4 to get FastCGI enabled, but, eh. After a few tries, I just quit. I had Apache running as stated earlier, but it was the connection. On the morning of March 13, 2010, I was like, &******** it, I'm installing Windows 2000!" And installed Windows 2000 Server for the lulz. Let's just say my computer didn't like it as much. It didn't install the video drivers (probably because it was an earlier service pack and it didn't really matter anyway), and it was a bit unstable running the Server Setup program. Eh. After that, I installed Windows 2000 Professional Service Pack 3. It was very smooth.
End: Funny that back in 2007 I ran my site entirely of Linux, and it was stable. It stopped in February to March of 2009 because the hard drive started getting bad blocks, or in layman's terms, it was failing.
