Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Updated Tomcat+Apache and Apache+SSL HOWTO

I spent the last couple of days struggling with setting up Apache 2.0.42 and Tomcat 4.0.5 on both Windows and Linux. I've updated an article I found on this matter and published it (with permission from the original author) at:

I also setup SSL on Apache with the above configuration and learned a lot in that process too. Once again, I found an article, updated it and have published it (with permission from the original author) at:

I hope by updating these articles I've made it easier for anyone else to do the same. My Configuration? Windows XP (SP1) / Red Hat Linux 7.3 with J2SE 1.4.1, Apache 2.0.42 and Tomcat 4.0.5.

I attempted to set these up on Mac OS X, but found no binary version of on Jakarta's site. I also tried to build it from source, but no dice there either. Enjoy!

Red Hat 8.0 Coming Monday

From LinuxPlanet:

Red Hat 8.0 is scheduled to be formally released on Sept. 30 and many in the Linux user community are watching the development of the new "Bluecurve" desktop design very closely.

In the retail edition of Red Hat that's coming out this Monday, the Linux vendor is replacing the traditional GNOME interface with Bluecurve, a Red Hat-created GUI theme combining elements of both GNOME and KDE, the major rival to GNOME. [ Full Article, Screenshot 1 and Screenshot 2 ].

Look cool - and since I love to upgrade, I'll probably be installing this next week. That is, if I can download the binaries. I have a 1MB wireless connection, but that doesn't do any good if the servers are clogged. I just hope I can upgrade from 7.3 rather than install from scratch. I'll keep you posted
