LAMP Virtual Appliance DNS Update

I posted the DNS resolution issue I encountered [1] with the LAMP Server appliance from VirtualAppliances.net [2] on their support forums [3]. They’ve responded that they have yet to reproduce the issue but are working on it. I’m looking forward to getting this working, and I’ve also requested a quote from them to see what a custom appliance would cost that includes LDAP support, which I would need if I want to use HelpSpot’s Live Lookup feature [4] to connect to Active Directory and pull account information into HelpSpot [5]. We’re small enough that this would be useful but not a must, so a lot of it is based on the custom appliance price.

Of course keeping it all on one server has it’s own advantages.

That is an excellent idea Ian, thanks! I may look into that once if we purchase HelpSpot.
