Use Ubuntu as a Mac File Server or Time Machine Volume

Recently, I came across this amazing article that shows you how to turn your Ubuntu desktop/server into a Mac File Server or Time Machine volume. Not only does it allow you to share files between the two computers, but it will also automatically mount your Time Machine volume and begin the backup process. I have followed this article and am currently using this setup on my home network. If you have any questions about this article or need help, please post it in the comments.

Resolved: Apache “Could Not Reliably Determine the Server’s Fully Qualified Domain Name”

While installing Apache 2 on my Linux server, which runs Ubuntu 10.10, I came across this error:

chris@chrism-laptop:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
* Restarting web server apache2
apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name,
using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName

To solve this problem simply issue this command:

sudo gedit /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

The file will be blank by default so don’t worry! Type this into the blank document and save:

ServerName localhost

Now, issue the restart command for apache.

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Hope this helps!
