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

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

The SquirrelMail package from the Debian/Ubuntu repositories comes with a configuration file for Apache, but not for nginx. This tutorial shows how you can use the Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04 SquirrelMail package in an nginx vhost. Nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.

Using GeoIP With Nginx On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04

Using GeoIP With Nginx On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04

This tutorial explains how to use the GeoIP module with nginx on Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04 to find out where your visitors come from. The GeoIP module sets multiple variables like $geoip_country_name, $geoip_country_code, $geoip_city, etc. that you can use in your PHP scripts or directly in your nginx configuration, for example to serve content in different languages based on the user's country.

Editing Images With Pinta

Editing Images With Pinta

This article is about how to use the Pinta graphical editor to edit pictures and covers some of its most important features. Pinta is a lightweight image editor for Linux and is far more easier to handle than Gimp but still has a large variety of tools and features to use. It can be used for quick editing like resizing images or adjusting the colours of photographs, but also for more professional tasks which depend on layered images and more. It is a good mixture between MS Paint and professional image editing tools and is recommendable for most purposes of image-editing-everyday-use.

Multiserver Setup With Dedicated Web, Email, DNS & MySQL Database Servers On Debian Squeeze With ISPConfig 3

Multiserver Setup With Dedicated Web, Email, DNS & MySQL Database Servers On Debian Squeeze With ISPConfig 3

This tutorial describes the installation of an ISPConfig 3 multiserver setup with dedicated web, email, database and two DNS servers all managed trough a single ISPConfig 3 control panel. The setup described below uses five servers and can be extended easily to to a higher number of servers by just adding more servers. E.g. if you want to have two mailservers, do the setup steps from chapter 2 on both of these servers. If you want to set up more web servers, then install ISPConfig on all other web servers in expert mode except of the first one.

Nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.

Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04

Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04

This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with nginx on Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there are several ways to work around this. I will outline three solutions: the first is to proxy requests for CGI scripts to Thttpd, a small web server that has CGI support, while the second and third solution are very similar - both use a CGI wrapper to serve CGI scripts.

PHP-FPM/Nginx Security In Shared Hosting Environments (Debian/Ubuntu)

PHP-FPM/Nginx Security In Shared Hosting Environments (Debian/Ubuntu)

If you want to use nginx and PHP-FPM for shared hosting environments, you should make up your mind about security. In Apache/PHP environments, you can use suExec and/or suPHP to make PHP execute under individual user accounts instead of a system user like www-data. There's no such thing for PHP-FPM, but fortunately PHP-FPM allows us to set up a "pool" for each web site that makes PHP scripts execute as the user/group defined in that pool. This gives you all the benefits of suPHP, and in addition to that you don't have any FTP or SCP transfer problems because PHP scripts don't need to be owned by a specific user/group to be executed as the user/group defined in the pool.

Mounting Remote Directories With SSHFS On Debian Squeeze

Mounting Remote Directories With SSHFS On Debian Squeeze

This tutorial explains how you can mount a directory from a remote server on the local server securely using SSHFS. SSHFS (Secure SHell FileSystem) is a filesystem that serves files/directories securely over SSH, and local users can use them just as if the were local files/directories. On the local computer, the remote share is mounted via FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace). I will use Debian Squeeze for both the local and the remote server.

Running Magento 1.6.0.0 On Nginx (LEMP) on Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04

Running Magento 1.6.0.0 On Nginx (LEMP) on Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04

This tutorial shows how you can install and run Magento 1.6.0.0 on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 11.04 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). Magento is an open-source, feature-rich ecommerce platform; I will use the Magento Community Edition here which is licensed under an open source certified license (OSL v3.0). nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.
