So, now that Hardy Heron is out, I’ve gone ahead and upgraded my server. It took a little while, but overall it went quite smoothly. Having the ability to go back and forth between the old server image and the new server image made it a much easier experience. Big thanks to Linode and virtualization.
One large change I made to my configuration is using Dovecot’s sasl authentication for Postfix rather than Cyrus. Dovecot really seems to be making headway in the mail server market. I strongly reccomend it to anyone looking for a decent IMAP server.
I’ve also upgraded to WordPress 2.5 and a later version of Roundcube for webmail. Unfortunately, Ubuntu seems to be holding Roundcube back a bit in their package repository. I’m not sure what the holdup is, but they’re at least one version behind at the time I’m writing this. For that matter, WordPress is a couple of releases behind as well. I guess that happens with an LTS release.
I’m still having a bit of trouble getting WordPress’ permalinks working correctly, so you’ll probably notice that some of the links aren’t working properly on the blog. I remember having this problem in the past, but, for the life of me, I can’t remember what I did to solve it.
Update: Got the permalink issue taken care of. Apache must be told, with the “AllowOverride” parameter, to allow .htaccess files. If this isn’t done, they will be ignored.
