How to Install the Memcached Module on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Installing the Memcached module for PHP on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is as simple as can be. First let’s make sure we have Memcached installed: sudo apt-get install memcached On Ubuntu, the process to install the PHP module is similar to how we installed Memcached itself: sudo apt-get install php5-memcache php5-memcached […]

How to Setup a LEMP Stack on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with a good ol’ LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) but in my experience, Apache doesn’t necessarily scale all that well with PHP. It’s really not Apache’s fault, the fact is that most of the time servers are configured to use the […]

How to Setup a LAMP Stack on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

It seemed fitting that the first post on PHP Avenue should be about setting up a new server with PHP. This particular post will focus on a traditional LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I also intend on writing additional posts covering the setup of a […]

My Search for the Perfect Desktop Environment Part 3: Xmonad, Gnome Shell and back again

In case you missed it, here’s part 1 and part 2 of this series. Shortly after becoming disenchanted with OSX again, Dean Jones introduced me to Xmonad as he recently has switched over to it. Around that same time, I was attempting to become a vim user (Vimmer? Vimusketeer? Vimaniac?) […]

My Search for the Perfect Desktop Environment Part 2: How I spent 2 weeks attempting to be an Apple Fanboy

In case you missed it, here’s part 1 of this series. So earlier this year I got my hands on an 11” Macbook Air that we had laying around the office. This was around the same time my 14” Dell “Black Friday” laptop starting giving me shit (cheap system, over […]

My Search for the Perfect Desktop Environment Part 1: Switching from Unity to Gnome Shell

I’m unsure of how many parts this series will consist of, but this is the first. Prior to Ubuntu’s Unity, I was a long time user of Gnome 2 with the occasional deviation to KDE (typically days at a time, just was never my thing). Prior to the release of […]

Script to Install Adobe Air on Ubuntu 64-bit

So after giving Gwibber an honest try for a few months, I’ve decided it’s time to move back to DestroyTwitter for my tweeting needs. Unfortunately, earlier in the year when I completely denounced Adobe products (specifically Flash) I went ahead and completely removed Air from my system. But alas, I […]

New year, new problems

Well my car didn’t start this morning. I think it’s because of the cold (I thought 30 degree weather in Florida was illegal) but we’ll see tomorrow. Now this all happened after I had a tech support issue from my wife, her laptop would boot up past the white Ubuntu […]

/home is where the heart is… on the NAS

In an attempt to unify my desktop data on my newly acquired laptop I decided to try out sharing my /home directory from my desktop as a NFS and then mounting it as /home on my laptop. Originally this idea was flawed because the laptop was not connecting to the […]

Wireless Connection at Boot (pre-GUI)

A while back I got my wife a new laptop from Dell, got it set up with Ubuntu 8.10 and then proceeded to fight with YoVille! for a week or so prior. Since then, I still had a few action items on my list, specifically getting wireless working on boot […]

Intel Graphics Regressions in Jaunty, say wha?

A piece of me died after I upgraded from Ubuntu 8.10 to 9.04. Apparently, and serves me right for not reading up on it before the upgrade, the Intel Graphics drivers are completely crippled by a bug in the code. Wow, and this made it to the final release? I’m […]

Upgrading from Ubuntu 8.04 LTS to Ubuntu 8.10

Well after a few days of not being able to run any upgrades on my installed copy of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, last night things started moving. The upgrade process from Ubuntu 8.04 LTS to Ubuntu 8.10 took all of last night (I started it around 9PM) and on through this […]

Issue with SQLyog Job Agent on Ubuntu

No error message, it just says that the sync had started. What sucks about this issue, is that I ran into it with a previous version of SQLyog Job Agent (sja) but was able to troubleshoot it faster because the program would dump an error message. I have been messing […]
