Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On CentOS 6.4
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 CentOS 6.4.
Installing Nginx With PHP5 (And PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On CentOS 6.4
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 CentOS 6.4 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support.
Installing Apache2 With PHP5 And MySQL Support On CentOS 6.4 (LAMP)
LAMP is short for Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. This tutorial shows how you can install an Apache2 webserver on a CentOS 6.4 server with PHP5 support (mod_php) and MySQL support.
How To Use Multiple PHP Versions (PHP-FPM & FastCGI) With ISPConfig 3 (Debian Wheezy)
Since ISPConfig 3.0.5, it is possible to use multiple PHP versions on one server and select the optimal PHP version for a website. This feature works with PHP-FPM (starting with PHP 5.3) and FastCGI (all PHP 5.x versions). This tutorial shows how to build PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.4 as a PHP-FPM and a FastCGI version on a Debian Wheezy server. These PHP versions can be used together with the default PHP (installed through apt) in ISPConfig.
CentOS 6.4 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend
This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on CentOS 6.4 and how to configure it to share files over the SMB protocol as well as how to add users. Samba is configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In the resulting setup, every user has his own home directory accessible via the SMB protocol and all users have a shared directory with read-/write access.
The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.4 x86_64 (Apache2, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)
This tutorial shows how to prepare a CentOS 6.4 x86_64 server 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 web server, Postfix mail server, MySQL, BIND nameserver, PureFTPd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, Mailman, and many more. 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 Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On Scientific Linux 6.3
Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on a Scientific Linux 6.3 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support. PHP-FPM (FastCGI Process Manager) is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites. I use PHP-FPM in this tutorial instead of Lighttpd's spawn-fcgi.

This tutorial shows how to build PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.4 as a PHP-FPM and a FastCGI version on a CentOS 6.3 server. These PHP versions can be used together with the default PHP (installed through yum) in ISPConfig.
Set Up Squid Siblings On CentOS 6.3 With WCCP
This tutorial will walk you through setting up a couple of outbound Squid proxy sibling servers running on CentOS 6.3 and have them connected to your gateway using WCCP. This will not cover the tuning of Squid in terms of cache performance.
Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On Fedora 18
This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with nginx on Fedora 18. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there are several ways to work around this. I will outline two solutions: the first is to proxy requests for CGI scripts to Thttpd, a small web server that has CGI support, while the second solution uses a CGI wrapper to serve CGI scripts.
