New Web Server

Posted on Wednesday 21 November 2007

After years and years running my sites, and those of a few friends, on WebStar I’m moving over to Apache running on Mac OS X Server. Why? Pretty simple: Kerio, the company who bought WebStar, has let it languish. While they’ve said for a couple of years that they’re committed to the platform they haven’t upgraded it or patched it. Meanwhile, the newest version of Leopard Server is terrific.

I’ll miss the simplicity of WebStar’s admin interface, without a doubt. And I’ve got a bit of a learning curve to climb with Apache, and with Leopard server. But from what I’ve seen so far I’m impressed by the speed. Hopefully I haven’t screwed up the realms for those who need them. 🙂

If you’re reading this it means the move was successful. Now all that’s left is to upgrade to the latest and greatest WordPress version, then make sure my offline editor works.

Now, if you’re reading this it means the upgrade to WP worked, too. At least, we think so.

And finally, if you’re reading this, I’ve verified that the offline editor, MarsEdit, is working with it too. Now on to the next one…
