her name is Angela and she helps to track your blog so you can get stats.

you can hide her and still let her report by simply adding this to your style.css maybe at the bottom.

iFolder install on ubuntu

How to install iFolder on Ubuntu server

ifolder_icon_bigFor a long time, I always searched for a synchronizing solution that just works. Sure, there is Unison, but its interface is a little rough. And it is not developed anymore. You can try rsync, but it is one way only (if you want two ways, you’ll have to do it yourself). Recently, things like DropBox and Ubuntu One are a great step forward. But their free version are quite limited in space. Plus, I like to have my data on my server, not just ’somewhere in the cloud’. Fortunately, recently Novell released a new version of iFolder. Seemed like the perfect solution, so I thought I’d give it a shot.

Of course, the first requirement for this tutorial is that you have your own server. Either a dedicated, a shared one, a some computer in your garage, but you must have root access to it.

vikholt has adapted the steps to work with debian lenny. You can read his tutorial here:

https://trac-git.assembla.com/unifolder/wiki/InstallingIFolderServerOnDebianLenny

Requirements

* First, you must have a up-to-date Ubuntu server. I installed iFolder on ubuntu server 9.04, I think it should also work with server 8.10 and desktop 9.04. However in the case of 8.10, the dependencies may be a little bit different.
* Also, you must have apache installed and configured to work with ssl to have the windows client to work. You can quickly enable it with:
sudo a2enmod ssl
sudo a2ensite default-ssl
* That’s all

Steps
Start in an empty folder, for example ~/ifolderinstall

1. Download the different packages:
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ifolder3/ifolder3-enterprise-3.7.2.9089.1-0.2.i586.rpm
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ifolder3/ifolder-enterprise-plugins-3.7.2.9089.1-2.i586.rpm
wget http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/10.3/repo/oss/suse/noarch/log4net-1.2.9-104.noarch.rpm
2. Install alien and convert the packages:
sudo apt-get install alien
sudo alien –scripts *.rpm
3. Install the packages:
sudo dpkg -i ifolder3-enterprise_3.7.2.9089.1-1.2_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i ifolder-enterprise-plugins_3.7.2.9089.1-3_i386.deb
4. Install the dependencies:
sudo apt-get install mono-1.0-runtime mono-2.0-runtime mono-apache-server mono-apache-server2 libapache2-mod-mono libmono-system-web1.0-cil
5. You must install a special version of log4net:
sudo apt-get remove liblog4net1.2-cil
sudo dpkg -i log4net_1.2.9-105_all.deb
6. Restart apache and verify everything is still working (it should):
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
7. Run the Simias server setup:
sudo /usr/bin/simias-server-setup
enter these for answers (most are default, take care of apache user and group):

12. Correct again mod_mono path:
sudo sed -i ‘s/apache2\/mod_mono.conf/apache2\/mods-enabled\/mod_mono.conf/g’ /etc/apache2/conf.d/ifolder_admin.conf
sudo sed -i ‘s/apache2\/mod_mono.conf/apache2\/mods-enabled\/mod_mono.conf/g’ /etc/apache2/conf.d/ifolder_web.conf
13. Enable rewrite:
sudo a2enmod rewrite
14. Restart apache:
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
15. Go to https://yourserver.com/admin , create a user, and enjoy !

Here are some screenshots of the admin and web client:

ifolder-admin1

ifolder-admin2

ifolder-admin3

ifolder-web-client

The windows client

You can the install client to start creating ifolders of your own. You can download it on the official iFolder page. Once installed, the configuration steps are quite straight forward. Here are some screenshots:

ifolder-client1

ifolder-client2

ifolder-client3

From my initial use, everything is running sweet. One minor thing though: if you configure admin to not transfer big files (say more than 2 Gibis), the ifolder windows client will not stop from complaining that a policy prevents him from upload files. Also, it would be sweet if some folder could be easily removed from the sync process. However, this is still miles away from other setups. Everything works as it should. Plus, the web access is really a bonus.

The Ubuntu client

Thanks to the awesome work of Marcelo Boveto Shima, there is a ppa for installing ifolder client on Ubuntu. I tested it, and if there were some problems with the first version, I managed to get the latest one to work with my setup. Yeah ! Some screenshots:

iFolder Ubuntu client

So now, you can have a all in one sync solution that works… This rocks !

… well not really. :( But no worries, my Googleganger has it covered. Meet my newest Facebook friend Daniel Lench. We may be related on fact! Let me tell you, it’s strange to email yourself, and stranger to receive one. So after conversing with him for a bit, I’m here to say that Daniel Lench is unequivocally one cool guy! In fact I recommend everyone pay as much attention to him as possible and give him lots of money and acting roles. :) THANKS!!!

And to everyone else with the last lame Lench, Daniel is already taken. In fact It’s getting crowded in here!!!
