ownCloud is a capable solution for storing your digital life on a private server. By default, data is saved on the same partition as the operating system, which may lead to a lack of free disk space.

As your storage needs grow, it may become necessary to move ownCloud's data directory. Whether you are adding more space or just looking to change the default storage location, this tutorial will guide you through relocating ownCloud’s data directory.

Due to the architecture of SSDs, or solid state drives, continuous use results in degraded performance if not accounted for and mitigated. The TRIM command is an operation that allows the operating system to propagate information down to the SSD about which blocks of data are no longer in use. This allows the SSD's internal systems to better manage wear leveling and prepare the device for future writes. TRIM can have a major impact on the device's performance over time and its overall longevity.

In the world of Microsoft Exchange, there are two types of domains that the administrator must understand and configure accordingly: accepted domains and remote domains. Accepted domains are SMTP namespaces for which Exchange is allowed to send or receive email. In the case of receiving email, accepted domains also include those SMTP namespaces for which Exchange will receive a message yet continue to send it onwards to other external email systems. Remote domains are simply those SMTP namespaces that are external to Exchange.
