Linux Administration

This is my first real website. In high school, I set up an old PC to run Windows 2000, and used it mostly as a proxy to access all the neat game sites in my daily computer classes. Of course I had a terrible personal page too, which I’m sure nobody saw.

I’ve got a domain name now. I set up a minimally-sized VPS (Virtual Private Server) through Linode. All these tools are brand-new to me, and luckily they have great configuration guides spanning anything you might want to run on your server. WordPress is pretty neat, and I think I’m well on the way to Taking Back My Name.

The Apache access log is a bit scary; some random computer tried to get access to any admin pages I may have left open. Security is tough, I followed the configuration guides. It seems like nothing bad has happened yet, and since that script was deferred, I’m relatively convinced others will meet the same fate.

    actually sir, some people did see that personal page. personally I find it tragic that the welcome image of that page isn’t up here.

      Hey Nate! I’m really surprised you found this! Not through Google, I imagine, because my ranking isn’t really being helped so much by an inactive blog… but it’s effort to post!!
