A few days ago, someone started a thread in our own Elgg forum, announcing the release of their new plugin: Izap Disk Quota and other plugins as well. However, we strongly recommend staying away from those plugins. In this article, I will strongly recommend you to not to use those plugins in our servers.
After I saw that post, I was curious and went to the Elgg community to see the plugin Izap Disk Quota. For my surprise it was an odd plugin. First, the plugin needs a framework, called Izap Bridge. That’s pretty normal, however such framework is not available on the Elgg community and to get it you must register on another site.
After I finally got the framework, I installed it like you normally install a plugin in Elgg. However, when I tried to use it I couldn’t because I had to register my domain name in their site. In other words, I had to give the address of my Elgg network if I wanted to use the plugin Izap Disk Quota. That’s just plain wrong, because there’s no reason why a free plugin will need my domain name. I find it suspicious, and I believe it sends server information to the developer, which is wrong.Learn More

I am writing this article, because recently a friend of mine brought me his Windows laptop to backup some of his files and reinstall the O.S. I was having trouble because he had a Blue Screen of Death that wouldn’t let me boot into Windows, so to backup the files, I decided to use an Ubuntu Live CD and look for them in there. In Ubuntu I found out that the hard drive wasn’t being mounted, and figured out it was because the computer was turned off the hard way (power button pressed for a few seconds, or AC power cord disconnected).
To mount it I found out that running a very simple command in the terminal would force Ubuntu to mount it, or if you have access to the Windows O.S., simply restart your computer the correct way, and it you won’t need to force mount it.

One of the developer tools for Elgg Sites admins is the ability to log all errors, warnings and notices. This is useful if you are testing on your machine, but it can be harmful if you are using it in our servers because if you don’t know how to use it, you could fill the servers with warnings and errors and make a bad use of disk space. .
