Working on Another Server

Posted 11-24-2017 at 07:42 PM by des_a

I'm working on another server again. I'm working on vmandrakelinux. It is an application (App) server. I'm having a little bit of trouble, but that's for the forums. There are going to be 5 virtual servers on main2. There is one working one right now. It is vmandrivalinux. It's working okay, except of course for a little bit of technical problems I'll address in another "pass".

These 5 servers are going to be:
  • vmandrivalinux
  • vmandrakelinux
  • vsuselinux
  • vfedoralinux
  • vredhatlinux
