• Installing Mailpile on CentOS 6

    I've been meaning to play around with Mailpile since the beta was released back in September. Thanks to a bout of insomnia I finally found time, though it turns out that getting it up and running on CentOS 6 is initially something of a pain.

    This documentation details the steps required to install and run Mailpile on CentOS 6

    DISCLAIMER: For reasons I'll discuss in a separate post, at time of writing I'd only recommend following these steps if you want to test/play with Mailpile - Personally I don't feel at all comfortable with the idea of using Mailpile in production in it's current state.

  • OpenVPN on CentOS 6

    Setting up OpenVPN is seldom complicated nowadays, but on CentOS it's far more straightforward than I've experienced on most other distro's.

    This documentation details how to install and configure OpenVPN on CentOS 6

  • OpenVPN on Windows 2003

    We all know that Microsoft probably couldn't organise an orgy in a brothel, so I'm not sure why I was so surprised that their "Routing and Remote Access" service was interfering with other applications that may wish to add a route (in this case OpenVPN).

    This tutorial will show you how to install and configure OpenVPN on Microsoft Windows 2003 (including Small Business Server).

  • PHPCredLocker: Post Installation Steps

    There are a few steps you should take following installation of PHPCredLocker, though only one that you have to take. All are, however, strongly recommended;

    • Create Credential Types
    • Backup Encryption Keys
    • Set up User Groups
    • Create a non-privileged user
    • Set up a Cron Job

  • Saab 9-3: Installing a Dashcam Hardwire Kit

    I drive a lot of miles, so statistically it's likely that at some point I'll be involved in a collision. In all my earlier cars, I've fitted a dashcam so that I can show whether or not (hopefully the latter) I was at fault when that day arrives.

    Having recently changed car, I once again need to install the dashcam. The cam itself is a Nextbase 412G and simply clips to it's mount (stuck to the windscreen, with one of these adhesive mounts).

    This documentation details how to install the Nextbase Dashcam Hardwire kit into a 2010 Saab 9-3 Saloon. It should also apply to most other years and variants of the 9-3 (and, to some extent, things like the Vauxhall Vectra).

  • Saab 9-3: Installing a rear facing dashcam

    I've had a front facing dashcam (in various cars) for quite some time. For a good proportion of that time I've thought about also having a rear facing cam, but in previous cars finding a switched live at the back of the car wasn't particularly straight forward.

    The 9-3, though, has an rear electrical centre which includes a rear fusebox, conveniently located in one of the boot side panels.

    This documentation details the simple procedure involved in installing a rear facing dashcam into the Saab 9-3 Saloon.
