I enjoy reading lists of the tech that other organizations use, like the posts from Brian Bailey and 37signals which have provided insight and ideas as we build our own environment. So here is the first of a series of posts on the technology we use at St. Mark’s. I’ll begin with our external web environment.
Registrars: Dotster for most of our domains, hopefully all of them soon.
ISP: Cox – We have a 3mb pipe on a fiber SONET ring.
Firewall: Cisco PIX
Hardware: Sony Vaio PCV-RS420 P4 2.8, 1 GB RAM, 2 120 GB RAID 1
Operating System: CentOS-4
Web Server: Apache
Content Management System: Joomla!, evaluating Drupal for future use.
Photo Albums: Gallery
Web Stats: AWStats
Text/Code Editor: SciTE
Graphics Editor: GIMP
WYSIWYG HTML Editor: NVU
File Transfer: WinSCP
SSH Client: PuTTY
We are considering collocating our web server instead of running it in house so that we won’t be restrained by our 3mb pipe on bandwidth.
I would love to hear what you are using or your opinion on what we use, please feel free to comment.
