     Check it out, explore, let me know of anything you think would make it better.

     Try it out on your Smart Phone, it’s all responsive and mobile friendly. Some of the webmail options work on some SmartPhones. If the default webmail doesn’t work well for you, try the RoundCube or RainLoop alternatives.  If neither of those work well, there is a ownCloud mail client that works very well on mobile devices.

Web and FTP Changes

     We upgraded our WordPress to 5.01 today.  Hopefully this will not cause problems.

‘     Our virtual domain system for ftp is changing and it will no longer automatically change to your directory when someone logs in anonymously.  They will need to cd to /home/user to get to your directory.  This is in preparation for changing the ftp server from wu-ftpd which has some compatibility issues with some version of filezilla which is the most widely used ftp client on Windows systems and often Mac and Linux as well, to a newer server.  Unfortunately, wu-ftpd was/is the only ftp daemon that had the capacity to automatically change directories based upon domain or IP address.

     I am also changing the IP address of some of our servers.  Because name service changes take some time to propagate, I will be having the servers listen to both addresses for a period of time until the changes have propagated.  These changes are requiring frequent restarting of the web server so there will be brief (1-5 second) interruptions.  They should not be longer unless I mistype something in the configuration files.
