Hi all.  I kinda drop in and out of this forum, mostly when I've got a puzzler that I can't figure out.  My journey from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion was a little slow.  I tried to make the transition from Snow Leopard to Lion and failed, but this time I made it and I thought I'd share a little scratchpad post I wrote to document what I did.  Mostly this is about adding back a few things that I really need.  Here's the list of stuff that I added back:


  • Firewall management (IceFloor)
  • MySQL
  • Webmail, email filtering rules and email aliases (RoundCube)
  • "Group" emails (short, multi-recipient email exploders)
  • Mailing lists (Mailman)


I also dramatically improved reliability by adding a lot of memory, and doing nightly-restarts of the machine.


Here's a link to the post

I'm happy to report that the new server has been running for a month or so and all seems fine.  Whew.  A long journey.  Thanks to all of you who posted things that helped me along the way.  Hopefully this will return the favor.
