Cool Stuff to Run In Your Webspace?
May 7, 2007 10:41 AM Subscribe
What free, open-source projects can I run in a privately accessible portion of my webspace that would be useful to me in terms of making things more practical in my own life (think Lifehacker-43 Folders kind of stuff)? I'd prefer Mefites' personal experiences with their own installs over linkage that you've seen but never tried — although I'll take either one.

I'm on a Mac at home, so it preferably does not require
a Windows end-user. Also, I would be the only person using this, although that of course doesn't have to rule out multiuser apps.
I do not have shell access, but do have access to a rather robust set of tools called "cPanel
" (includes cron, permissions, etc.), and I believe the host's admins would be willing to run a few commands for me if called upon to do so.
I had set up a MediaWiki wiki (since I was used to monobook and Mediawiki's particular wikiformatting style), which proved to be a positive experience, and I'd like to check out other things — but would like some guidance as to what people found useful in their own lives.
