How To Create A Debian Wheezy (Testing) OpenVZ Template

This tutorial explains how to create an OpenVZ template for Debian Wheezy (Debian Testing) that you can use to create virtual Debian Wheezy machines under OpenVZ. I searched for a Debian Wheezy OpenVZ template, but couldn't find one, that's why I decided to create it myself. This guide can also be used for creating Debian Lenny templates and templates for recent Ubuntu versions.

How To Set Up SSL Vhosts Under Nginx + SNI Support (Ubuntu 11.04/Debian Squeeze)

How To Set Up SSL Vhosts Under Nginx + SNI Support (Ubuntu 11.04/Debian Squeeze)

This article explains how you can set up SSL vhosts under nginx on Ubuntu 11.04 and Debian Squeeze so that you can access the vhost over HTTPS (port 443). SSL is short for Secure Sockets Layer and is a cryptographic protocol that provides security for communications over networks by encrypting segments of network connections at the transport layer end-to-end. In addition to that I will show how to make use of SNI (Server Name Indication) to allow multiple SSL vhosts per IP address.

Restricting Users To SFTP Plus Setting Up Chrooted SSH/SFTP (Debian Squeeze)

Restricting Users To SFTP Plus Setting Up Chrooted SSH/SFTP (Debian Squeeze)

This tutorial describes how to give users chrooted SSH and/or chrooted SFTP access on Debian Squeeze. With this setup, you can give your users shell access without having to fear that they can see your whole system. Your users will be jailed in a specific directory which they will not be able to break out of. I will also show how to restrict users to SFTP so that they cannot use SSH (this part is independent from the chroot part of this tutorial).

Running WordPress On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04

Running WordPress On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04

This tutorial shows how you can install and run a WordPress blog on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 11.04 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). In addition to that I will also show you how you can use the WordPress plugins WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache with nginx. nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.

Installing PowerDNS (With MySQL Backend) And Poweradmin On Debian Squeeze

This article shows how you can install the PowerDNS nameserver (with MySQL backend) and the Poweradmin control panel for PowerDNS on a Debian Squeeze system. PowerDNS is a high-performance, authoritative-only nameserver - in the setup described here it will read the DNS records from a MySQL database (similar to MyDNS), although other backends such as PostgreSQL are supported as well. Poweradmin is a web-based control panel for PowerDNS.

Using scponly To Allow SCP/SFTP Logins And Disable SSH Logins On Debian Squeeze

Using scponly To Allow SCP/SFTP Logins And Disable SSH Logins On Debian Squeeze

scponly is an alternate shell that restricts users to SCP and SFTP logins, but disallows SSH logins. It is a wrapper to the OpenSSH suite of applications. With the help of scponly, you can allow your users to use clients such as WinSCP or FileZilla to upload/download files, but you refuse SSH logins (e.g. with PuTTY) so that your users cannot execute files/programs. This tutorial shows how to install and use scponly on Debian Squeeze.

Setting Up Network RAID1 With DRBD On Debian Squeeze

Setting Up Network RAID1 With DRBD On Debian Squeeze

This tutorial shows how to set up network RAID1 with the help of DRBD on two Debian Squeeze systems. DRBD stands for Distributed Replicated Block Device and allows you to mirror block devices over a network. This is useful for high-availability setups (like a HA NFS server) because if one node fails, all data is still available from the other node.
