Now that VMware has released their new vSphere 5 into the public, questions always come up on how to make a bootable vSphere 5 USB installation media. As of now there isn’t any official way of doing this if you are using a Microsoft, Apple or Linux GUI based OS. So I have made a small step-by-step guide on how to achieve this. So here we go…
2. Download the VMware vSphere 5 ISO file -> VMware Download Center.
4. Choose Type: USB Drive and choose the correct USB drive letter that you want the bootable installer to be installed to.
5. You are now done! Just make sure you edit the boot sequence in your BIOS (UEFI mode on some systems).
You can also visit the vSphere 5 documentation online.
on the ‘edit page’ page, you should have the options to stop comments, below the page editor, a box ‘discussion’ –
if that is not there, click the ‘screen options’ tab near the top right of that page, and tick the appropriate tick box.
at the moment you even have a text pointing to the comment box:
‘Any other general comments may be entered in the box below. Thank you for taking the time to help with this consultation. ‘
This plugin reconfigures the wp_mail() function to use SMTP instead of mail() and creates an options page that allows you to specify various options.
You can set the following options:
- Specify the from name and email address for outgoing email.
- Choose to send mail by SMTP or PHP’s mail() function.
- Specify an SMTP host (defaults to localhost).
- Specify an SMTP port (defaults to 25).
- Choose SSL / TLS encryption (not the same as STARTTLS).
- Choose to use SMTP authentication or not (defaults to not).
- Specify an SMTP username and password.
Configure SMTP mailing in WordPress, including support for sending e-mail via SSL/TLS (such as GMail).
This plugin is the renamed, rewritten, and updated version of the wpPHPMailer plugin.
Use this plugin to customize the SMTP mailing system used by default by WordPress to handle outgoing e-mails. It offers you the ability to specify:
- SMTP host name
- SMTP port number
- If SMTPAuth (authentication) should be used.
- SMTP username
- SMTP password
- If the SMTP connection needs to occur over ssl or tls
In addition, you can instead indicate that you wish to use GMail to handle outgoing e-mail, in which case the above settings are automatically configured to values appropriate for GMail, though you’ll need to specify your GMail e-mail (including the “@gmail.com”) and password.
Regardless of whether SMTP is enabled, the plugin provides you the ability to define the name and e-mail of the ‘From:’ field for all outgoing e-mails.
A simple test button is also available that allows you to send a test e-mail to yourself to check if sending e-mail has been properly configured for your blog.
