comment Database server: Small quick RAM or large slow RAM?
IMO, 100% more RAM capacity beats an added 20% in RAM speed.

comment Need help creating server out of Personal PC for small project
You can use github (git) or bitbucket (mercurial) for the source control. They're free to low cost, and will allow you each to keep a local repo, and merge your changes as needed. Otherwise, yeah, you can set it up on your pc, but you'll need to give the other student access to your pc via your network. For a central database, you can find free to low cost mysql hosting and use that, or if you really need SQL Server, have everybody run their own local instance of SQL Express that they can work against.

comment Is it safe to replicate from Solaris ZFS to FreeBSD ZFS?
Do you have a reference I can read for more info? I'm not understanding how comaptibility gets broken. IMO, the upgrade should still see the v22 data as v22 compatible, and send it back to a v22 system as v22 data. To not do this seems like a "bad thing". Thanks.

comment Is it safe to replicate from Solaris ZFS to FreeBSD ZFS?
In the above scenario, why would upgrading the FreeBSD ZFS filesystem break compatibility? Wouldn't upgrading, to say v34, still recognize the data as having come from v22, and preserve the fact?

comment Why does the “boot>” prompt in OpenBSD disappear at startup?
Normal behavior is that it should pause for a few seconds to allow you to manually enter boot options, then continue booting. boot> shouldn't backspace away.

What's the function of the OS-X server in this network? It doesn't seem like a good fit.

comment Keeping freebsd up to date with only binary packages
You might want to throw a pkgdb -F in there before running portupgrade, just as a precaution.

comment Keeping freebsd up to date with only binary packages
This happens because the updated ports collection is looking for packages from either STABLE or CURRENT (I think it's STABLE), but portupgrade is using the PACKAGESITE for 8.1-release, so it finds the older packages. If he changes the PACKAGESITE url to ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-8-stable/All/ and runs the commands, it will upgrade the packages to match the updated ports collection, but he'll no longer be following RELEASE, instead STABLE. In a nutshell, to get the latest binary packaes, you need to change the repo from RELEASE to STABLE or CURRENT.

comment Is one Xeon core enough to run a general website on my VPS?
Just an fyi... VirtualBox or VMWare Player are excellent ways to build a basic test environment without the overhead of a VPS. It's a good way to learn without messing with a production server.

comment Server for Virtualization-what important things to consider
VirtualBox isn't on the primitive side for its' intended usage, which is desktop/workstation virtualization. It could be used for server virtualization, provided that the user's needs are within its' limits.
