    Something going on with the forum?

    Is something going on with the forum? My unread thread indication is way off. The logged in indicator says 'Log in' instead of my name but when clicked pops up and says 'Oops, we ran into a problem!'. I've tried in Chrome and Firefox and both have the same thing. I figured I'd give it a day but...

    Apache error after updating to WHM 11.40

    If you run into the following error after updating WHM to version 11.40 then you simply need to run EasyApache to fix it. Essentially it looks like they are adding support for IPV6 and due to the old httpd.conf not supporting it you get this error when trying to run the apache_conf_compiler...

    Integrating Google Apps with cPanel domains

    First off thanks to BAlGaInTl for the original write up on how to integrate with DirectAdmin. Much of how to do this is the same as BAlGaInT's post and you can accomplish the goal using his write-up as well but since it is a different control panel I thought I would make a post as well...

    CentOS upgrade?

    Hey all, As a general rule of thumb I prefer to keep operating systems up to date and current. The notable exception to this being WinME and Vista but that's another story.
