Hi, I had the same problem with MySQL. It happened to be a problem with the port 3306.
In my case it was being used by another application ( a vpn tunnel to another mysql).
The problem was solved after after I cleared the 3306 and let the local mysql use it.
We are setting up a file server with Intel S5500BC Mother Board & will have Raid 5 for storage.
Can anyone tell us if this Board will support this things for Ubuntu 9.04 server?
What are the things we should consider before setting up this server?
I’m a novice & need some one’s help in this this.
After setting up the email server, I can check my email in squirrel mail as well as Outlook. But the problem is I have to login as [email protected]
Is there a way by which I can login as just myname?
I ask this because we will be migrating to this new server shortly and since the old server required just myname for logging in we will now have to go round to all the PCs to make the changes.
Any help would be appreciated.
