Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On CentOS 6.3

Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On CentOS 6.3

This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with nginx on CentOS 6.3. 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.

Virtualization With KVM On A CentOS 6.3 Server

Virtualization With KVM On A CentOS 6.3 Server

This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on a CentOS 6.3 server. I will show how to create image-based virtual machines and also virtual machines that use a logical volume (LVM).

Virtualization With Xen On CentOS 6.3 (x86_64) (Paravirtualization & Hardware Virtualization)

Virtualization With Xen On CentOS 6.3 (x86_64) (Paravirtualization & Hardware Virtualization)

This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen (version 4.1.x) on a CentOS 6.3 (x86_64) system. Xen lets you create guest operating systems (*nix operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD), so called "virtual machines" or domUs, under a host operating system (dom0). Using Xen you can separate your applications into different virtual machines that are totally independent from each other.

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On CentOS 6.3

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On CentOS 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 Centos 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.

Using Rex To Automate Your Datacentre

In my day to day work I come across a lot of tasks that I actually "hate" to be honest. Most of these tasks consist of things that are repetitive and take up a lot of time.
