comment Can't get Office 2010 to run under Wine
You should not be posting suggestions which refer only to Ubuntu 10.10. 10.10 is EOL.

True, that is also acceptable.

comment How to set up apache user and group to current?
@Kirix Why not just have your folders you have the files in group owned by www-data such that it shows as user:www-data, thereby giving www-data read/write as is needed? It's not a good idea to have a web server running as non www-data for most deployments.

Note that minimum specs aren't necessarily recommended specs. Depending on what you are planning on running, you should have varying specs.

What Salem said. But, the full error message is useful you know. What's the exact error message you are getting?

@mikewhatever suggesting that someone use an EOL release isn't a constructive use of comments...

comment What's the latest, stable version of Ubuntu that doesn't use Unity?
11.04 is EOL, so is 10.10. Only 10.04.2 is the latest supported release without Unity by default.

comment Is it possible to install Gimp on Ubuntu Server and use it in command line from a php script?
GIMP has a dependency on using graphical libraries and runtimes, the last I checked. I'm not certain you can use GIMP for this.

comment Apt-get vs Wget
How did you "install" anything using wget? wget's a downloader, not a package installer...

Uhm... I assume you mean Ubuntu 12.04? Not 04.12?

did you happen to try sudo init 6? That should also force the restart.

Did you configure the database server? Or is it not your database server?

comment who is scping your ssh server
Why would you be scp-ing at all on your laptop? If you have SSH enabled, you should be securing it with SSH key auth, and firewalling all other ports anyways...

comment apache2 won't start
Try working with your configs again, the error suggests you have an invalid line that was valid in 10.04 but not 12.04

comment Get music on iPod Touch iOS 6.1.3
Note that with each iOS update, it sometimes stops working with the tools in Ubuntu which can work with it.

comment connecting to archive.ubuntu.com takes too long
The IPs in your included messages is IPv6. That suggests it's using IPv6, and if I"m not mistaken there aren't that many IPv6 servers for the archive.

comment connecting to archive.ubuntu.com takes too long
I wonder if it has to do with the fact you're using IPv6. Are you on an IPv6 network?

comment Using linux/ubuntu to combat windows flash drive malware?
Protip: Keep multiple backups. And scan those files before trying to use them ANYWHERE, since they could also be infected.

Your "Referral" link wouldn't happen to link to YOUR referrals, would it?
