I'm having trouble setting up a simple project that uses documents4j - which is a Java API that converts from Excel documents to PDF. It actually delegates the conversion to the local environment so that the locally installed copy of MS Office does file -> export to PDF. I'm trying to follow the example for "Local Converter", and am getting some exceptions. See http://documents4j.com/ (I'm referencing the local converter section) - I downloaded the documents4j, and built with maven - I wrote the sample code in documents4j site - I'm getting exception "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.slf4j.LoggerFactory" I think I may have some classpath issue, since I setup as an Eclipse project. If you can help, I will hire for other projects as well.

I need to have the core of a new Linux-based (for now) control panel implemented. It is to be run on RHEL/CentOS 6.5 and needs to have support for the following functionality: - Billing (hosting+VPS activation/deactivation depending on payment) - System tools/daemons support through plug-ins - Application installation (and possibly configuration) through plug-ins - Monitoring capabilities extendable via add-ons - Simple themability - Domain management scheme - Unified authentication management for all the services/daemons that support PAM (e.g. FTP, Squid, sendmail et al.) The front-end should be preferably written in PHP. Possibly the backend should be written in the same as well, but this is negotiable. Besides the core functionality at least the following plug-ins should be implemented as well: httpd (Apache), vsftpd, named (ISC BIND), pptpd, OpenVPN, Squid, sendmail, dovecot, MySQL (including phpMyAdmin), PHP, Python, quotas, file manager, sshd, iptables. The budget is negotiable...

I have a VPS running Centos/Varnish/Nginx/PHP-FPM and I am getting an error in my newly installed Wordpress sites in the dashboard when trying to install a new theme. Here is the error: "An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration." I need someone to check out the server configuration to see what is preventing the adding of a new theme from Wordpress.org.
