El Capitan Server Upgrading
Category : Technology/ElCapitanUpgradingAftermath.txt
I’ve finished moving my live server to El Capitan. It took too long. This is the first time I’ve done an upgrade instead of a clean install. I upgraded from Mavericks, actually, rather than Yosemite, and I’m already seeing quite a few problems.
For example, the Apache files on my upgraded Mac Mini look to be different from the Apache files on my development machines, which I’ve always kept clean by doing clean installs (mostly). So my web server couldn’t start up and it took a while to debug it. Mail and the DNS server both started up fine.
But I’m having problems with the Keychain. My apps can’t seem to be able to save passwords onto the upgraded Mac Mini’s keychain.
So, quite a few puzzles to sort out. It wasn’t as smooth as I hoped it would be.
Upgrading to El Capitan
Category : Technology/UpgradingToElCapitan.txt
I’m upgrading my live server to El Capitan. As in, right now. If you see the server disappear, it’ll hopefully be only for a while.
I’ve only got this Mac Mini that I’m using as a server because I’ve been saving my money for the next incarnation of the Mac Mini from Apple and that’s taking too long to appear. So if I want to move my one and only server right now to El Capitan, I’ve got to move it in-situ.
Once I finish typing and uploading this post, I’m going to start the upgrade process.
And then start up all my Internet services using my own “enabler” apps. Time to eat my own dog food...
