Managing A Headless VirtualBox Installation With phpvirtualbox (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS)
phpvirtualbox is a web-based VirtualBox front-end written in PHP that allows you to access and control remote VirtualBox instances. It tries to resemble the VirtualBox GUI as much as possible to make work with it as easy as possible. It is a nice replacement for the VirtualBox GUI if you run VirtualBox in headless servers (like in the tutorial VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.3 On A Headless Ubuntu 14.04 Server). This tutorial explains how to install phpvirtualbox on an Ubuntu 14.04 server to manage a locally installed, headless VirtualBox.
Installing Apache2 With PHP5 And MySQL Support On OpenSUSE 13.1 (LAMP)
LAMP is short for Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. This tutorial shows how you can install an Apache2 webserver on an OpenSUSE 13.1 server with PHP5 support (mod_php) and MySQL support.

VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.3 On A Headless Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Server
This guide explains how you can run virtual machines with VirtualBox 4.3 on a headless Ubuntu 14.04 server. Normally you use the VirtualBox GUI to manage your virtual machines, but a server does not have a desktop environment. Fortunately, VirtualBox comes with a tool called VBoxHeadless that allows you to connect to the virtual machines over a remote desktop connection, so there's no need for the VirtualBox GUI.
The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 13.1 x86_64 (Apache2, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)
This is a detailed description about how to set up an OpenSUSE 13.1 64bit (x86_64) server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable) with PHP, CGI and SSI support, Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH, TLS and virtual mail users, BIND DNS server, Pureftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Dovecot POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, Mailman, etc. Since version 3.0.4, ISPConfig comes with full support for the nginx web server in addition to Apache; this tutorial covers the setup of a server that uses Apache, not nginx.
Installing Nginx With PHP5 (And PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support (LEMP) On Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Nginx (pronounced "engine x") is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server. Nginx is known for its stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption. This tutorial shows how you can install Nginx on an Ubuntu 14.04 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP) .
Implementing SSL Perfect Forward Secrecy in NGINX Web-Server
This HOW-TO describes the process of implementing Perfect Forward Secrecy with the NGINX web-server on Debian and Ubuntu systems. The process can readily be adapted to other GNU/Linux systems.
The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 14.04 (nginx, BIND, MySQL, PHP, Postfix, Dovecot and ISPConfig 3)
This tutorial shows how to prepare an Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) server (with nginx, BIND, Dovecot) for the installation of ISPConfig 3, and how to install ISPConfig 3. ISPConfig 3 is a webhosting control panel that allows you to configure the following services through a web browser: Apache or nginx web server, Postfix mail server, Courier or Dovecot IMAP/POP3 server, MySQL, BIND or MyDNS nameserver, PureFTPd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and many more. This setup covers nginx (instead of Apache), BIND (instead of MyDNS), and Dovecot (instead of Courier).
Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 14.04LTS)This document describes how to install a Postfix mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses.
Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On Fedora 20
This document describes how to install a PureFTPd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota and upload/download bandwidth limits with this setup. Passwords will be stored encrypted as MD5 strings in the database.
