Welcome to the site, my name is Jeff and I have been working in the IT field since the early 90's. Most of what I post here is related to work that I do for the various companies that I have worked for over the years. Please feel free to look around ask questions or post comments (if available).

PHP, Pear and Windows
When running PHP I receive the following message:
IIS, PHP, MySQL and Web PI
I’ve posted a couple of things last week regarding how I use Virtual PC, and since recently I’ve been downloading web apps that need php and mysql I figured I would document what I did to make them go. One of the things I figured out very early on is my job is to find things to make us go, yes I stole that from a Star Trek episode but it’s so true!
Building a server, using the method I outlined in my previous post, becomes cake.
Windows/Linux Server Base Image
I do a lot of software evaluations and as such I have come to rely quite heavily on virtualzation so I don’t have to worry about setting up hardware. As the software that we evaluate can be either Windows or Linux based I have created two base images, and from there build out my test servers for software deployment. The steps for each OS are very similar and I won’t go into any great detail on specific setup steps. I tend to just do a basic Windows Server installation taking all the defaults, and likewise for my Ubuntu LTS installation with only exception being selecting the OpenSSH at the end.
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and Request Tracker
Looking at some different possibilities regarding desktop support, so I’m outlining the steps I took to get a working copy of RT up and running on an Ubuntu 8.0 LTS server.
