Design for new website

Today I worked on a design for the upcomming site. The domain name isn’t enabled yet but on linux your don’t need DNS to access the site. Put something like the following in your /etc/hosts file like this:

…and access it anyway. I don’t know if there is a similar way on Windows?!

I think it lookss pretty good so far.

phpwiki problems with VirtualHost

I tried installing the package phpwiki and the installation went (like almost always with Debian) smooth. But I use severel VirtualHost’s and when i tried to access phpwiki I was met with an error 404 :(

After googling around I found that RewriteRules isn’t inheritet from the default apache settings into a VirtualHost neither is the RewriteEngine setting.

Put this in each VirtualHost which should have phpwiki enabled:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteOptions inherit

Note if you have more global RewriteRules than phpwiki these will also be enabled.

Still struggling with my Postfix server

Still can’t get Postfix to save my mail in Maildir format :-( It seems that Postfix don’t have permission to save the emails where I directed it to, even though it should. And of top of it all Courier-IMAP won’t authendicate via MySQL.

But this sucker ain’t going to get me down… I will fight to the end. Eventualy I will get reinforcements :)

Thor, Per, Steffen… HELP! bought

Last night I bought the domain I’m hoping to put a site togeter which only focus on graphics for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution. Like wallpapers, splashscreens, icons etc.

I will have to setup a homepage for this and apart from a gallery/download page I was thinking of adding a wiki page where we can write documentation/tutorials for specific styles of icons, wallpapers etc.

Let’s se how it goes :)
