You probably knew already how to do it but this is for a friend requested to have this posted, to all novice users and also to prove that everything went fine after the upgrade. My Zimbra and Openfire also didn't have any issues after the upgrade.

The instructions here are straightforward. Therefore, I assume that you know a little more than the basics of VMWare. Anyway, you can shoot your comments below if you happen to bump on something. Here we go!

1. Open your RedHat 6.0 VM. Under the CD/DVD device, browse through the iso image if your RedHat 6.4 update installer.

3. Set the device to Connect at power on. Now start your VM and Press F2 during start up to enter setup.

4. Make sure that your VM boots up to your CD/DVD drive first. Save and exit

 5. You should now be able to see the startup screen of your RedHat 6.4 update. Select Install or upgrade and then just follow the proceeding images.

Lastly, you will be prompted to update the boot loader. Do it and proceed with the upgrade.

Technically, my Zimbra and Openfire didn't actualy have issues internally with the VM itself. I am also able to log in to my Zimbra's web mail and admin console but unable to send email. Also noticed my Openfire that while I can access its web admin console, I am unable to log in from my jabber client.

I investigated further and analyzed the logs. I found out that the problem was with my hosts file. My Zimbra and Openfire was having a hard time trying to resolve the domain names. During upgrade, RedHat erases all modifications you did to the hosts file and reset it back to default. I have added back those host names and aliases and boom, everything is now back to normal with the upgraded RedHat 6.4 in place.


I've just upgraded my VMWare Workstation to 10.0.1 and saw some options missing regarding folder sharing between Windows and Linux machines. I currently have the latest Windows 8.1 as host machine and RedHat 6.4 as my virtual machine. This is the workaround that I found and should work on Windows 7.

How to share folders between them?
Under your host Windows 8.1 machine:
1. Right click on the folder to share >> Properties >>Advance Sharing and then add the user to have access to the resources.

2. Click the Share button and then add the user to whom to share it with.

Under you VM RedHat 6.4
1. Open Computer >> Connect to Server

2. Under Service type, select Windows Share

3. Fill in the necessary details to access the shared folder

4. If proper permission is set under Windows section, the shared folder should display without errors.

You can actually share contents between machines if the user added have write permission. Enjoy.


This is actually my first time to make a review on iOS update. I'll be brief and direct to the point. But since my device is iPad mini, my findings might not apply to other apple devices.

Ok here we go. On a good internet access, download only took less than 30min and a  little faster during installation. Immediately after installation, I was expecting an eye candy UI. But no, a simple but cool to the eyes interface got my attention.

The first glance was epic since for the first in history, Apple listen to what the consumers are asking - a brand new UI. But the first swipe turned out to be a shocker. I noticed some lags on the response time even on trasition. I thought it was just temporary but things gets worst as I go on. Lag is everywhere.

I tried to reboot my device but to no avail. I wanted to go over all the new features that they brag about but I've had enough already.

So sum it up...
Pros: new UI is nice and cool
Cons: boot up time took longer this time. Lagging on transition. It's lag... lag... lag.

Overall: It felt like android lol. Makes you want to have the old version back! Do not upgrade you iOS!


Like YouTube videos, Facebook posts can now be embedded. If you're still not getting what I'm talking about, see the sample below.

This was taken from one of my recent FB posts feed. I took the link and voila!

Just look for the class="fb-post" section and then edit the link to your FB post feed.

<div id="fb-root"></div> <script>(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src = "//"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>
<div class="fb-post" data-href=""><div class="fb-xfbml-parse-ignore"><a href="fb-post" data-href="">Post</a> by <a href="">Simply Mikaela</a>.</div></div>
