This may sound peculiar, but take your drive out and put it in the freezer overnight and then quick as all can be put it in and boot up and get off what you can. I've used this technique multiple time to great success. -Original Message- From: Jonathon McKitrick [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]

Personally, unless one has great need not to, I highly recommend upgrading to samba3 to start with. The perfomance gains alone I found well worth it. Plus if you plan to integrate into a network with 2k/XP/2K3, it will greatly improve compatibility. -Original Message- From: W. D.

You installed the CGI port.. You need to install the apache module. CGI doesn't allow embedded php in the page. The port you are looking for specifically is /usr/ports/www/mod_php4 Might be worth your while to look at /usr/ports/lang/php4 though. It allows compilation of php in various forms.

The fact you only have to maintain one OS is one great advantage. One ports tree, one system to patch for security updates. The learning curve to use FreeBSD's pf is negligible imo. As long as kernel support is compiled in for it, and you have the users in your /etc/passwd it just works. Least for

Seems you could just mount all the filesystems but /var and /tmp as readonly, set secure level to max, dump all logs to a new log daily, start a new log and do checks on the old logs. That would be my route. Or run a diskless server, or even a live cd of the setup install. -Original
