Build Your Own Video Community With Lighttpd And FlowPlayer (Debian Etch)
This article shows how you can build your own video community using lighttpd with its mod_flv_streaming module (for streaming .flv videos, the format used by most major video communities such as YouTube) and its mod_secdownload module (for preventing hotlinking of the videos). I will use FlowPlayer as the video player, a free Flash video player with support for lighttpd's mod_flv_streaming module. I will also show how you can encode videos (.mp4 .mov .mpg .3gp .mpeg .wmv .avi) to the FLV format supported by Adobe Flash.

Virtual Machine Replication & Failover with VMWare Server & Debian Etch (4.0)
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions about how to create a highly available VMware Server environment on a Debian Etch system. With this tutorial, you will be able to create Virtual Machines that will be available on multiple systems with failover/failback capabilities.
How To Save Traffic With mod_deflate On Lighttpd 1.4 (Debian Etch)
In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure mod_deflate on a lighttpd 1.4 web server on Debian Etch. mod_deflate is included by default in lighttpd 1.5, but not in 1.4 where mod_compress is used instead. The advantage of mod_deflate over mod_compress is that it can compress static and dynamic files (such as PHP files), whereas mod_compress can compress static files only. The lighttpd version coming with Debian Etch is 1.4.13, so we have to patch it to support mod_deflate. mod_deflate allows lighttpd to compress files and deliver them to clients (e.g. browsers) that can handle compressed content which most modern browsers do. With mod_deflate, you can compress HTML, text or XML files to approx. 20 - 30% of their original sizes, thus saving you server traffic and making your modem users happier.
DSPAM With Embedded ClamAV Integrated Into Postfix With Virtual Users And Domains

Installing Webmin On Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (7.04)
This document describes how to setup Webmin on an Ubuntu Feisty Fawn (7.04) server. Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. As of July 15th 2006 webmin.com has had a testing deb for the full webmin package. In order to use this, the root account needs to be enabled, which breaks one of the major security guides for Ubuntu. Using the following method of installing Webmin removes the need to enable the root account.
Virtual Hosting With Proftpd And MySQL (Incl. Quota) On Fedora 7
This document describes how to install a Proftpd 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 with this setup.
How To Harden PHP5 With Suhosin On OpenSuSE 10.2
This tutorial shows how to harden PHP5 with Suhosin on an OpenSuSE 10.2 server. From the Suhosin project page: "Suhosin is an advanced protection system for PHP installations that was designed to protect servers and users from known and unknown flaws in PHP applications and the PHP core. Suhosin comes in two independent parts, that can be used separately or in combination. The first part is a small patch against the PHP core, that implements a few low-level protections against buffer overflows or format string vulnerabilities and the second part is a powerful PHP extension that implements all the other protections."
