Re: Postfix Configuration

Thanks, Jeff.  OpenVZ is not an acceptable way to serve up a Virtual
Machine I figured that out within hours without knowing that much. I tried
to install apache on a Link 1 and immediately got a memory error.  VPSLink
sets up twice your physical memory as swap, so that's workable.

Thanks for the Link to the review!

My boss has just approved Link 3.  We are a very small company, and money
is really tight, so this will be unmanaged...  No CPANEL, so everything is
set up manually.  I tried the host-in-a-box, but didn't really care for
it.  Besides, I learn a lot more this way.  Getting my butt kicked up
between my shoulders once in a while is a good thing.

This configuration works out well for PHP and MySQL with Apache.  (LAMP). 
I'm seriously looking at ROR (Ruby on Rails).  It's really not a standard
yet, but I'm getting a little bored with PHP, so am wanting to try it out!
 What do you think?  Have you messed with it?  When I started in PHP and
MySQL about 10 years ago, it saved an unbelievable amount of time in
managing pages.  I've never set up an ROR application yet, but I'm excited
about checking it out.

Take care!  Have a Merry Christmas!

Thanks so much for the Input!!!  I've learned more than I could imagine
from this experiment, but now it's turning into a reality.
