Building PHP 5.4 From Source On Debian Squeeze
This tutorial describes how you can build PHP 5.4 from source on Debian Squeeze. Later on, we will install more modules through PECL and add it as an additional PHP version to ISPConfig's dropdown. At the end you will have a fully function PHP 5.4 installation which is selectable within the ISPConfig interface and a .deb package than can be used on other server as well.
Virtualization With KVM On A Scientific Linux 6.3 Server
This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on a Scientific Linux 6.3 server. I will show how to create image-based virtual machines and also virtual machines that use a logical volume (LVM). KVM is short for Kernel-based Virtual Machine and makes use of hardware virtualization, i.e., you need a CPU that supports hardware virtualization, e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V.
How To Do Mass Enrolling Of Yubikey With LinOTP
When it comes to two factor authentication Yubikeys are very in vogue. They are small, they have a very small footprint on your keychain and are easy to handle as they need no driver and authentication is as easy as touching a button. This howto shows, how you can use the open source LinOTP to enroll many Yubikeys to the LinOTP server.
Installing Nginx With PHP5 (And PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On Scientific Linux 6.3
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 a Scientific Linux 6.3 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support.
Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On Scientific Linux 6.3
SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY") is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google's alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression. To use SPDY, you need a web server and a browser (like Google Chrome and upcoming versions of Firefox) that both support SPDY. mod_spdy is an open-source Apache module that adds support for the SPDY protocol to the Apache HTTPD server. This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on Scientific Linux 6.3.
Installing Apache2 With PHP5 And MySQL Support On Scientific Linux 6.3 (LAMP)
LAMP is short for Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. This tutorial shows how you can install an Apache2 webserver on a Scientific Linux 6.3 server with PHP5 support (mod_php) and MySQL support.
How To Skip Certain Errors In MySQL Replication
MySQL replication is nice, however it can happen that it stops because of an error, and restoring a working replication can be hard - you need to set locks on the master to get a consistent MySQL dump, and during that time websites are not accessible. However there's a way to make the MySQL slave ignore certain errors using the slave-skip-errors directive.
The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 12.10 (nginx, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)
This tutorial shows how to prepare an Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) 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).
Version 1.4 Of The ISPConfig 3 Manual (Date: 02/22/2013) Available
