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

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.

Server Monitoring With Icinga On Debian Squeeze

Server Monitoring With Icinga On Debian Squeeze

Icinga is an enterprise grade open source monitoring system which keeps watch over networks and any conceivable network resource, notifies the user of errors and recoveries and generates performance data for reporting. It is a fork of Nagios. This tutorial explains how to install Icinga on a Debian Squeeze server to monitor this server and another Debian Squeeze server.

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.

How To Speed Up Drupal 7.7 With Boost And nginx (Debian Squeeze)

How To Speed Up Drupal 7.7 With Boost And nginx (Debian Squeeze)

This tutorial shows how you can speed up your Drupal 7.7 installation on a LAMP stack (Debian Squeeze) with the help of Boost and nginx. Boost provides static page caching for Drupal enabling a very significant performance and scalability boost for sites that receive mostly anonymous traffic. Boost makes sure that your logged-in users always get fresh content by not caching pages for logged-in users. In a first step I will show how to make your site faster by enabling Boost on a normal LAMP stack (Apache2, PHP, MySQL), and in a second step I explain how to make your site even faster by using nginx as a reverse proxy sitting in front of Apache and delivering the static HTML pages cached by Boost. nginx delivers static files a lot of faster than Apache and uses less memory/CPU.

Setting Up ProFTPd + TLS On Debian Squeeze

Setting Up ProFTPd + 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 ProFTPd with TLS on a Debian Squeeze server.
