    Whoops....
    I think i fried my Xserve G5, it's not working now. The lid shows some fried or black marks, could high humidity cause a short? It's been about 98% here for the pass 2 weeks...

    Anyone?


    Good thing there's insurance...

    High heat can kill a computer even if it is not being used. We used to have a PC in our unairconditioned 3rd floor and one summer the ram and mobo fried in the heat

    Now this is what i call Good Service!!!

    Today is Sunday! Yes Sunday! That right folks SUNDAY! and for the Apple Centre in Hong Kong it's Business as usual... as today they give me a replacement Xserve G5! Despite having the machine for over a month they gave me a completely new replacement.. they asked a few questions.. but nothing major. And today, they give me a brand new one, straight of the shelfs.

    Hey... I'm not gonna ask any questions... I just walked out with a huge grin!


    Thanks Apple!

    Just one question... How do I re-define the web root?

    Go into your httpd.conf file and change the web root in there which is /etc/httpd/

    Have fun with that thing!
