A New Year with FreeNAS Up-to-date

Unlike my update at the end of last year, I go into the New Year with FreeNAS up-to-date.  I’m running the latest version (11.2-U1), my jails are all on the latest version of FreeBSD (11.2) and they are mostly running the latest packages.  I’ve even updated the versions of PHP some of them are running.  2019 should be a quiet year!

Some PHP updates

I’ve recently updated my Nextcloud jail to 15.0 and noticed one of the Apps wanted a newer version of PHP.  It was running PHP 7.1.17 (which isn’t really that out of date) but I thought it might be time for some PHP updates across a number of jails…

Happy New Year

Blogging in bed is hardly the best way to celebrate the New Year and 2019, but I’ve got a chest infection and coughing feels like I’ve swallowed a set of knives!

 

2018 had its ups and downs, but here’s hoping that 2019 will be the best (and last) ‘teen that we see for some time…

Christmas Whisky

Merry Christmas and a whisky New Year!  A pretty good haul this year if I do say so myself, and that doesn’t include the Dalwhinnie Winter’s Gold I’d picked up myself in the supermarket with the Christmas shopping. read more…

Advent Calendar

Although I’m not sure anyone (other than me) is following this blog, if you were you might be wondering what had happened to my Lego Advert Calender this year?

Norlan Glasses

I’ve been thinking about buying one of these Norlan glasses for some time, but always struggled with the price – £42 for two whisky glasses is a bit steep!  But I was buying some other glasses this week, the supplier has these on offer, and buying both together saved on a delivery charge so I treated myself to an early Christmas present!

WordPress 5.0

So many major updates as the year comes to an end.  Last weekend, FreeNAS 11.2.  Today, WordPress 5.0 (well, actually 5.0.1 as I’ve held off for a little while!)

FreeNAS 11.2

It’s been a while coming, but FreeNAS 11.2-RELEASE is finally here and whilst I was somewhat apprehensive about updating to the first release, it’s been relatively painless and everything is still working!

MediaWiki

It’s been over a month since my last blog – the longest gap since I started blogging 2 years ago.  Yes, it’s been 2 years since I started on this journey of talking to myself 🙂  There are just too many things fighting for my time at present, with my new contract, daughter and dog taking up most of it.

I’ve been looking into potential replacements for the current internet/intranet solutions at work, so decided to have a play with MediaWiki as they are using this for a few things, but could be using it more.
