Creating Simple Virtual Hosts With mod_mysql_vhost On Lighttpd (Debian Squeeze)

Creating Simple Virtual Hosts With mod_mysql_vhost On Lighttpd (Debian Squeeze)

This guide explains how you can use mod_mysql_vhost to create simple virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Debian Squeeze. With mod_mysql_vhost, lighttpd can read the vhost configuration from a MySQL database. Currently, you can store the domain and the document root in the MySQL database which results in very simple virtual hosts. If you need more directives for your vhosts, you'd have to configure them in the global section of lighttpd.conf, which means they'd be valid for all vhosts. Therefore, mod_mysql_vhost is ideal if your vhosts differ only in the domain and document root.

Configure An Email Gateway With Scrollout F1 Anti-Spam & DLP

Configure An Email Gateway With Scrollout F1 Anti-Spam & DLP

An email gateway (a.k.a. firewall) is a machine (physical or virtual) installed between Internet and the email server. Its primary role is to protect the email server by filtering incoming messages, via SMTP protocol, from Internet. Secondary, an email gateway may be used as an outgoing gateway in case you want to add some new email features which are not provided by older email servers. For instance, Exchange 2000 or 2003 has no DKIM signing and verification service – a quality improvement for message delivery. This tutorial shows how to configure an email gateway with the Scrollout F1 email gateway.

Basic configuration covered by video tutorial.

OpenVZ: Mounting Host Devices/Partitions/Directories In A Container With Bind Mounts (Debian/Ubuntu)

OpenVZ: Mounting Host Devices/Partitions/Directories In A Container With Bind Mounts (Debian/Ubuntu)

Sometimes you are in a situation where you need to mount a hard drive, partiiton or directory from the OpenVZ host inside an OpenVZ container - for example, you add a fast SSD to the host and want to put your container's MySQL databases on it to make MySQL faster. This tutorial explains how you can mount host devices/partitions/directories in an OpenVZ container with bind mounts.

Creating Encrypted FTP Backups With duplicity And duply On Debian Squeeze

Creating Encrypted FTP Backups With duplicity And duply On Debian Squeeze

When you rent a dedicated server nowadays, almost all providers give you FTP backup space for your server on one of the provider's backup systems. This tutorial shows how you can use duplicity and duply to create encrypted (so that nobody with access to the backup server can read sensitive data in your backups) backups on the provider's remote backup server over FTP. duply is a duplicity wrapper script that allows us to use duplicity without interaction (i.e., you do not have to type in any passwords).

Setting Up vsftpd + TLS On Debian Squeeze

Setting Up vsftpd + TLS On Debian Squeeze

FTP is a very insecure protocol because all passwords and all data are transferred in clear text. By using TLS, the whole communication can be encrypted, thus making FTP much more secure. This article explains how to set up vsftpd with TLS on a Debian Squeeze server.

Running Shopware Community Edition (Version 3.5.6) On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 12.04

Running Shopware Community Edition (Version 3.5.6) On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 12.04

This tutorial shows how you can install and run Shopware Community Edition (version 3.5.6) on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 12.04 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). Shopware is a feature-rich ecommerce platform; I will use the Community Edition here which is free. nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.0.x On Debian Squeeze - Automatic File Replication Across Two Storage Servers

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.0.x On Debian Squeeze - Automatic File Replication (Mirror) Across Two Storage Servers

This tutorial shows how to set up a high-availability storage with two storage servers (Debian Squeeze) that use GlusterFS. Each storage server will be a mirror of the other storage server, and files will be replicated automatically across both storage servers. The client system (Debian Squeeze as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On Debian Squeeze

Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On Debian Squeeze

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.

Virtual Multiserver Environment With Dedicated Web & MySQL, Email & DNS Servers On Debian Squeeze With ISPConfig 3

Virtual Multiserver Environment With Dedicated Web & MySQL, Email & DNS Servers On Debian Squeeze With ISPConfig 3

This tutorial describes how you can set up a single dedicated server as a virtual multiserver environment using OpenVZ with dedicated Web & MySQL, Email and DNS servers on Debian Squeeze. Also, you will learn how to maintain all these servers. As an addition, you will learn how to install some very useful packages on all of them, how to protect them and how to monitor them. At the end you will have a fully functional virtual multiserver environment, ready for shared hosting.
