iDisk, hold the .mac
I don't need .mac. I have my own hosting elsewhere, I'm a friggin sysadmin anyway, and I don't control the .mac servers. I do want something that lets me backup our macs without hassle. These are my additional notes on how to make the hacks at Running Apple's Backup Without a .Mac Account. For my version, I used a mandrake 10 machine.
Fetch this stuff:
To do list
untar/gzip apache source to /usr/local/apache/apache_blah
untar/gzip mod_dav wherever.
patch apache with this patch
This will make osx play nice with webdav under apache. Otherwise you get weird behaviour and lots of error messages.
give apache ssl support
untar/gzip mod_ssl and openssl to /usr/local/apache
Now make apache
add this stuff to /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf
now add some passwords to /usr/local/apache/conf/passwd
htdigest -c /usr/local/apache/conf/passwd username
add your user and admin user.
set up the scripts to spit out the auth stuff for idisk/backup to work
finally, add entrys to /etc/hosts to the macs and go add the user and password to the .mac control panel.
$last_modified = filemtime("index.php");
print("Last Modified ");
print(date("m/j/y h:i", $last_modified));
