Postfix For FreeBSD After Make Install Notice

I need to blog this so that I can refer it later. For postfix.

cd /usr/ports/mail/postfix
make config
make install clean

- Select dovecot SASL and OpenLDAP and PCRE.


Would you like to activate Postfix in /etc/mail/mailer.conf [n]? y

To enable postfix startup script please add postfix_enable="YES" in
your rc.conf

If you not need sendmail anymore, please add in your rc.conf:


And you can disable some sendmail specific daily maintenance routines in your
/etc/periodic.conf file:


If you are using SASL, you need to make sure that postfix has access to read
the sasldb file. This is accomplished by adding postfix to group mail and
making the /usr/local/etc/sasldb* file(s) readable by group mail (this should
be the default for new installs).

If you are upgrading from postfix version prior to 2.0, please see the README
files for recommended changes to your configuration.

FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE (SMP) #0: Fri Jan 12 11:05:30 UTC 2007

Welcome to FreeBSD!

Before seeking technical support, please use the following resources:

o Security advisories and updated errata information for all releases are
at - always consult the ERRATA section
for your release first as it's updated frequently.

o The Handbook and FAQ documents are at and,
along with the mailing lists, can be searched by going to If the doc distribution has
been installed, they're also available formatted in /usr/share/doc.

If you still have a question or problem, please take the output of
`uname -a', along with any relevant error messages, and email it
as a question to the [email protected] mailing list. If you are
unfamiliar with FreeBSD's directory layout, please refer to the hier(7)
manual page. If you are not familiar with manual pages, type `man man'.

You may also use sysinstall(8) to re-enter the installation and
configuration utility. Edit /etc/motd to change this login announcement.

You can automatically download and install binary packages by doing

pkg_add -r

where you replace with the URL to the package. This will also
automatically install the packages the package you download is dependent on
(ie, the packages it needs in order to work.)


I just need to compile postfix and dovecot or maybe dbmail. :)

cd /usar/ports/mail/postfix
make config
make install clean

OSCC Participation In Malaysian Budget 2008 Web Server Preparation For Ministry Of Finance

OSCC Participation In Malaysian Budget 2008 Web Server Preparation For Ministry Of Finance

This document is designed to provide detailed report of all exercises done by OSCC during their participation in preparing a dedicated web server for the Budget 2008 presentation day conducted by the Ministry Of Finance (MOF).

Due to a massive visitor access spike projected during the budget day, OSCC team has been assigned to propose, set up and maintain a web server infrastructure solution based on Open Source technology that is reliable to handle the visitor surge, secure and cost saving. This solution is meant to replace the solution adopted by MOF for the past years that are too expensive and complex.

The solution provided by OSCC has successfully performs reliably and receives more than 130,000 page views without any problem. The solution also saves MOF a huge amount of money as it eliminates the need of expensive hardwares and it only uses free Open Source softwares.

All activities, findings and information will be presented in detail within this report which will be used as source of reference for similar implementation in the future.

Thanks to VitualBox now I can show participants in my Linux Networking course how to installed Linux in their Windows so they can try it at home or office, what they had learn for 3 days.

It's hard for them to find free hardware and they are not comfortable to try dual boot due to nature of their PC or notebook that may contain important documents. What ever are the reasons, I hope this VirtualBox will help them a lot.

Practice Make Perfect...

This Song For You - If You're Not The One - Daniel Bedingfield

Busy weeks, pressing tasks and I need to release the tension. I love to sing a loud in the middle of the night. Hehehe.

We're still kicking doing our things because for the one the we love and a lot of love (parents, kids, friends, eeepc :) ).

Hope I can blog about eeePC, eeebuntu, Flock, Postfix Aliases with OpenLDAP, my Linux Network Class. Need to sit down and blog it...........


If You're Not The One - Daniel Bedingfield

If you’re not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you’re not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all

I never know what the future brings
But I know you are here with me now
We’ll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with

I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

If I don’t need you then why am I crying on my bed?
If I don’t need you then why does your name resound in my head?
If you’re not for me then why does this distance maim my life?
If you’re not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?

I don’t know why you’re so far away
But I know that this much is true
We’ll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with
And I wish that you could be the one I die with
And I pray in you’re the one I build my home with
I hope I love you all my life

I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

‘Cause I miss you, body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today
‘Cause I love you, whether it’s wrong or right
And though I can’t be with you tonight
And know my heart is by your side

I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?
