Extending Perfect Server - Debian Squeeze [ISPConfig 3]

Extending Perfect Server - Debian Squeeze [ISPConfig 3]

The following tutorial will extend the "Perfect Server.... " for ISPConfig 3 with BIND & Courier installed in Debian Squeeze. It explains how to change default ports (ssh, ispconfig, webmin), how to install some useful applications (webmin, roundcube, atop, htop, multitail, tiger etc), how to update awstats periodically (more than once a day) or whenever you want, how to create clients' data backups (periodically) accessible under their folder and finally it explains how to tweak your system for performance (mysqltuner, tuning-primer) or security (custom firewall rules, (D)Dos Deflate, fail2ban modified).

How To Install Apache-Solr And Use It With Drupal And ISPConfig (OpenSUSE/Debian)

How To Install Apache-Solr And Use It With Drupal And ISPConfig (OpenSUSE/Debian)

Solr is the popular, blazing fast open source enterprise search platform from the Apache Lucene project. Its major features include powerful full-text search, hit highlighting, faceted search, dynamic clustering, database integration, and rich document (e.g., Word, PDF) handling. I use this on OpenSUSE and Debian (minor tweaks on Debian, just paths to correct but it's almost the same). Packages from 4 of March 2011.

Installing ASSP (Anti-Spam SMTP Proxy) On Ubuntu Server 10.04 / Debian 5.0

Installing ASSP (Anti-Spam SMTP Proxy) On Ubuntu Server 10.04 / Debian 5.0

This How-To document guides you through installing ASSP (Anti-Spam SMTP Proxy) on an Ubuntu 10.04 (LTS) Server or Debian 5.0 in the simplest way possible. It *may* work on later versions but I have no way of knowing how these instructions will work for you. Installing Ubuntu/Debian is beyond the scope of this document and it is assumed you already have the core Ubuntu/Debian OS with no predefined software collections installed.

Virtualization With KVM On A Debian Squeeze Server

Virtualization With KVM On A Debian Squeeze Server

This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on a Debian Squeeze server. I will show how to create image-based virtual machines and also virtual machines that use a logical volume (LVM). KVM is short for Kernel-based Virtual Machine and makes use of hardware virtualization, i.e., you need a CPU that supports hardware virtualization, e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V.

Make Browsers Cache Static Files With mod_expires On Apache2 (Debian Squeeze)

Make Browsers Cache Static Files With mod_expires On Apache2 (Debian Squeeze)

This tutorial explains how you can configure Apache2 to set the Expires HTTP header and the max-age directive of the Cache-Control HTTP header of static files (such as images, CSS and Javascript files) to a date in the future so that these files will be cached by your visitors' browsers. This saves bandwidth and makes your web site appear faster (if a user visits your site for a second time, static files will be fetched from the browser cache). This tutorial was written for Debian Squeeze.

How To Upgrade Debian Lenny (Debian 5.0) To Squeeze (Debian 6.0) On Xen VPS

How To Upgrade Debian Lenny (Debian 5.0) To Squeeze (Debian 6.0) On Xen VPS

This tutorial shows how to upgrade a Debian Lenny (Debian 5.0) installation on a Xen based Virtual Private Server (VPS) to Squeeze (Debian 6.0) including kernel update, dependency based boot sequencing and conversion to UUIDs. If you do it the usual Debian way just with apt-get dist-upgrade you will most likely end up with an unbootable system. This is mainly because the update of grub fails.

Installing Nagios On Debian Lenny And Monitoring A Debian Lenny Server

Installing Nagios On Debian Lenny And Monitoring A Debian Lenny Server

Nagios is a monitoring solution for complex IT infrastructures, Nagios is easy to implement and can be extended by custom-modules, called plugins. In this howto I explain howto install Nagios on a Debian Lenny host and make the configuration for it. Furthermore we are going to install a second Debian machine which we monitor with remote and local plugins.

Setting Up An Android App Build Environment With Eclipse, Android SDK, PhoneGap (Debian Squeeze)

Setting Up An Android App Build Environment With Eclipse, Android SDK, PhoneGap (Debian Squeeze)

This tutorial describes how you can set up an development environment for building Android apps on a Debian Squeeze desktop using Eclipse, the Android SDK, and PhoneGap. I will describe how to build Android apps from the command line with PhoneGap and from the GUI with Eclipse and PhoneGap and how to test them in an Android emulator and on a real Android device. PhoneGap allows you to develop your Android applications using web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (e.g. with JavaScript libraries such as jQuery/jQTouch), and it will turn these web apps into native Android apps (in fact, PhoneGap supports multiple platforms such as Android, iPhone, Palm, Windows Mobile, Symbian, so you can use the same sources to create apps for multiple platforms).

Easy RoundCube (Over SSL) And Webmin With fail2ban For ISPConfig 3 On Debian Squeeze

Easy RoundCube (Over SSL) And Webmin With fail2ban For ISPConfig 3 On Debian Squeeze

I prefer the RoundCube solution over the default in ISPConfig 3. I also find it useful to have the webmin installed in all my systems. In this post you can see a very fast way to have both of them installed, in companion with the great support of fail2ban. Finally I want to access all of them over SSL (even phpmyadmin -- see the tip in the end).

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Debian Squeeze)

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Debian Squeeze)

This document describes how to install a Postfix mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota. Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database. In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses. I will also show how to install SquirrelMail as a webmail interface so that users can read and send emails and change their passwords.
