How To Remotely Install Debian Over A RH Based Distro
Ocassionally, servers need to be retasked for various reasons. It has always been a challenge when the server has a distribution other than what I need. I do not want to drive to the data center to swap CDs around, so I decided to see if there was a way to remotely install the machine. I found some notes by Erik Jacobsen and used them to come up with an up-to-date how-to.
How To Install Django On Fedora 9 (Apache2/mod_python)
This tutorial explains how to install Django on a Fedora 9 server. Django is a web framework that allows to develop Python web applications quickly with as much automation as possible. I will use it with Apache2 and mod_python in this guide.
BIND 9 Vulnerability And Solution - Patch BIND To Avoid Cache Poisoning (Fedora/CentOS)
I am pretty sure most of you guys have hard about the Vulnerability in BIND. Dan Kaminsky earlier this month announced a massive, multi-vendor issue with DNS that could allow attackers to compromise any name server - clients, too. I thought I would share with you all one of the quickest solutions systems administrators running BIND 9 can use to help solve this vulnerability in case their systems are vulnerable.
Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On Fedora 9
This document describes how to install a PureFTPd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota and upload/download bandwidth limits with this setup. Passwords will be stored encrypted as MD5 strings in the database.
Embedding Python In Apache2 With mod_python (Debian/Ubuntu, Fedora/CentOS, Mandriva, OpenSUSE)
This tutorial shows how to install and use mod_python on various distributions (Debian/Ubuntu, Fedora/CentOS, Mandriva, OpenSUSE) with Apache2. mod_python is an Apache module that embeds the Python interpreter within the server. It allows you to write web-based applications in Python that will run many times faster than traditional CGI and will have access to advanced features such as ability to retain database connections and other data between hits and access to Apache internals.
Installing And Using OpenVZ On Fedora 9
In this HowTo I will describe how to prepare a Fedora 9 server for OpenVZ. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual Private Servers (VPS) on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the Linux Vserver project. OpenVZ is the open-source branch of Virtuozzo, a commercial virtualization solution used by many providers that offer virtual servers. The OpenVZ kernel patch is licensed under the GPL license, and the user-level tools are under the QPL license.

Installing mod_geoip for Lighttpd On Fedora 9
This guide explains how to set up mod_geoip with lighttpd on a Fedora 9 system. mod_geoip looks up the IP address of the client end user. This allows you to redirect or block users based on their country. You can also use this technology for your OpenX (formerly known as OpenAds or phpAdsNew) ad server to allow geo targeting.

How To Install VMware Server (Version 1.0.6) On A Fedora 9 Desktop
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Server (version 1.0.6) on a Fedora 9 desktop system. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems ("virtual machines") such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system. This has the benefit that you can run multiple operating systems on the same hardware which saves a lot of money, and you can move virtual machines from one VMware Server to the next one (or to a system that has the VMware Player which is also free).
