PhpMyAdmin error message when the script has not been run during install...

I see this fairly often when I have done fast installs of ubuntu:
"Connection for controluser as defined in your configuration failed."

What happens is I ignore the install script that needs to run for PhpMyAdmin to establish its database etc.
Happily the fix is fairly easy - just run the script again now:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin

Upgraded jaxbeachtech.com to Drupal 7

I finally bit the bullet and upgraded the site to Drupal V7 - it was pretty straight forward, a few glitches here and there, but overall, pretty smooth. It was worth waiting a few years for the code to be nicely cleaned up :)

A BIG Thank You to all those clever people that contributed to the Drupal 7 experience - there is no doubt about it - it is a fantastic product.

Settings (in Vista and Windows 7) to access Samba Shares...

Microsoft Vista’s default security policy is to only use NTLMv2 authentication. I am not sure what the setting is by default in Windows 7 - so this may apply there too.

Note that NTLMv2 authentication is supported in Samba 3.0+

Seems like we ought to be heading towards Kerberos for all our authentication needs in the longer term.
