I finally had some time to hack my Pogoplug and turn it into a “Plugbox”. I’m currently not sure if its accessible outside of my local network, but I have it set up with a dynamic DNS [marcbudofsky.dyndns-web.com] for the time being. Following Lifehacker’s guide was pretty straight forward, except they don’t explain how to use the server [ie, where to put files, how to check the PHP settings, how to make sure MySQL is working, etc] after the initial setup is complete and you have Apache running. I’m still in the process of figuring out all of the final configuration settings, so if anyone has any experience with these, please post in the comments.
If you go to check the site out and it appears to be down, thats just because I’ve stopped it from running while moving it to/from Binghamton. Check out a screenshot below of the server starting/stopping:
