Upgrades and Fixes

Spent the weekend upgrading my home systems and fixing some of the hosting issues I have. This includes

  • Upgrading a temp OpenSolaris installation to the latest Solaris Express build.
  • Upgrading the VirtualBox instances to the latest build
  • Upgrading the Ubuntu instances to the latest build
  • Upgrading PHP on a particular box to 5.2.10
  • Reviewing the MySQL databases used at the hosting provider and cleaning up staging and test instances that are no longer used.
  • Played a bit with hardware for compatibility and drivers – Onboard NICs vs. PCI NIC cards, setting SATA controllers to ahci mode, …

Still have a laundry list with me, but that is a good progress.
