Remotely Unlock Fully Encrypted Debian Squeeze

Remotely Unlock Fully Encrypted Debian Squeeze

In the past I have written several howtos for remotely unlocking fully encrypted Debian installations. With the advent of Debian Squeeze, the developers have integrated a simple way to do so. Most stuff is provided directly by Debian itself - meaning you don't need 3rd party scripts anymore. However it still involves a few steps which I describe below. Also I provide you with a bash script that will do all the steps automatically.

Configuring DNSSEC On BIND9 (9.7.3) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10

Configuring DNSSEC On BIND9 (9.7.3) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10

This guide explains how you can configure DNSSEC on BIND9 (version 9.7.3 that comes with Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10) on Debian Squeeze and Ubuntu 11.10. It covers how to enable DNSSEC on authoritative nameservers (master and slave) and on resolving nameservers, creation of keys (KSKs and ZSKs), signing of zones, key rolling with rollerd, zone file checking with donuts, creation of trust anchors, using DLV (DNSSEC look-aside validation), and getting your DS records into the parent's zone.

Using iSCSI On Debian Squeeze (Initiator And Target)

Using iSCSI On Debian Squeeze (Initiator And Target)

This guide explains how you can set up an iSCSI target and an iSCSI initiator (client), both running Debian Squeeze. The iSCSI protocol is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows iSCSI initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) iSCSI target using normal ethernet cabling. To the iSCSI initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.

How To Set Up WebDAV With Lighttpd On Debian Squeeze

How To Set Up WebDAV With Lighttpd On Debian Squeeze

This guide explains how to set up WebDAV with lighttpd on a Debian Squeeze server. WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning and is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that allow users to directly edit files on the lighttpd server so that they do not need to be downloaded/uploaded via FTP. Of course, WebDAV can also be used to upload and download files.

The Perfect Server - Debian Squeeze (Debian 6.0) With BIND, Dovecot & Nginx [ISPConfig 3]

The Perfect Server - Debian Squeeze (Debian 6.0) With BIND, Dovecot & Nginx [ISPConfig 3]

This tutorial shows how to prepare a Debian Squeeze (Debian 6.0) 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: nginx or Apache web server, Postfix mail server, MySQL, BIND nameserver, PureFTPd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and many more. The idea is to use the fast and memory efficient nginx web server and Dovecot which is also said to be more memory efficient. You will need to use the Dotdeb repository for nginx.

Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Debian Squeeze (Initiator And Target)

Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Debian Squeeze (Initiator And Target)

This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running Debian Squeeze. AoE stands for "ATA over Ethernet" and is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows AoE initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) AoE target using normal ethernet cabling. "Remote" in this case means "inside the same LAN" because AoE is not routable outside a LAN (this is a major difference compared to iSCSI). To the AoE initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.

How To Set Up Apache2 With mod_fcgid And PHP5 On Debian Squeeze

How To Set Up Apache2 With mod_fcgid And PHP5 On Debian Squeeze

This tutorial describes how you can install Apache2 with mod_fcgid and PHP5 on Debian Squeeze. mod_fcgid is a compatible alternative to the older mod_fastcgi. It lets you execute PHP scripts with the permissions of their owners instead of the Apache user.

Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Debian Squeeze

Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Debian Squeeze

In this article I will describe how you can monitor your Debian Squeeze server with munin and monit. munin produces nifty little graphics about nearly every aspect of your server (load average, memory usage, CPU usage, MySQL throughput, eth0 traffic, etc.) without much configuration, whereas monit checks the availability of services like Apache, MySQL, Postfix and takes the appropriate action such as a restart if it finds a service is not behaving as expected. The combination of the two gives you full monitoring: graphics that lets you recognize current or upcoming problems, and a watchdog that ensures the availability of the monitored services.

Running Feng Office (Community Edition) On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10

Running Feng Office (Community Edition) On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10

This tutorial shows how you can install and run Feng Office (Community Edition) on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 11.10 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). Feng Office is a web-based software that integrates project management, client relationship management, billing, financing, among other features that help you efficiently run your professional services business. nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.
