The Blog is now running on a new Debian 5 ( Lenny ) server located in Germany


Hetzner hat am 1. Juni seine neue Rootserver Serie vorgestellt und setzt
wieder einmal neue Masstäbe für Qualität und Leistung im Rootserver Bereich.
Die Reihe basiert auf Intel Quad Cores mit Hyper Threading Technologie
und schon der kleinste Server für 49 Euro pro Monat kommt mit 8 (!) GB Ram
und 2 Festplatten von 750 GB im Raid Verbund.
Mehr Infos auf Hetzner’s Webseite: is now an official mirror of the well known free Windows Hosting Control Panel.
Zpanel has become famous over the last years, Windows maybe not the first choice as a hosting platform, however for those who don’t like to become familiar with any .nix system, they can find a great and free control system with Zpanel. More info and download references at the publisher website.


Ubuntu 9.04

The new Ubuntu release is scheduled to come on out on April 23th 2009.

To upgrade from Ubuntu 8.10 on a desktop system, press Alt+F2 and type in “update-manager -d” (without the quotes) into the command box. Update Manager should open up and tell you: New distribution release ‘9.04’ is available. Click Upgrade and follow the on-screen instructions.


To upgrade from Ubuntu 8.10 on a server system: install the update-manager-core package if it is not already installed; edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and set Prompt=normal; launch the upgrade tool with the command sudo do-release-upgrade; and follow the on-screen instructions.


The SysCP Team has released version 1.4.1 of their
well known Server Control Panel software.
Some features have been added ( Autoresponders – Customer can view bandwidth – Mailbox Quota Limit )
but it seems that some new features are still bugging ( Automatic Package Setup ).
However the team does a good job and SysCP remains free of charge !
