Using ZFS Rollback and VirtualBox for Development
By drapeau on Aug 09, 2009
For me, this helps in creation of web sites. I am using Drupal to create a web site, but there's a lot of exploratory development I'm doing and if I mess up something, I want to go back to a known-to-work state. So, I create a VirtualBox image (OpenSolaris as my guest OS), then work with Drupal on that image. The thing is, sometimes I make changes that affect the state of the operating system so I want to cleanly go back to a working state. This blog entry shows me how to do exactly that.
