How To Configure PureFTPd To Accept TLS Sessions On Fedora 14

How To Configure PureFTPd To Accept TLS Sessions On Fedora 14

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 configure PureFTPd to accept TLS sessions on a Fedora 14 server.

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Fedora 13

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Fedora 13

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Fedora 13. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS here. The client system will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On Fedora 14

Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On Fedora 14

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.

How To Set Up Apache2 With mod_fcgid And PHP5 On Fedora 14

How To Set Up Apache2 With mod_fcgid And PHP5 On Fedora 14

This tutorial describes how you can install Apache2 with mod_fcgid and PHP5 on Fedora 14. mod_fcgid is a compatible alternative to the older mod_fastcgi. It lets you execute PHP scripts with the permissions of their owners instead of the Apache user.

Setting Up An Android App Build Environment With Eclipse, Android SDK, PhoneGap (Fedora 14)

Setting Up An Android App Build Environment With Eclipse, Android SDK, PhoneGap (Fedora 14)

This tutorial describes how you can set up a development environment for building Android apps on a Fedora 14 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).

VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.0 On A Headless Fedora 14 Server

VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.0 On A Headless Fedora 14 Server

This guide explains how you can run virtual machines with VirtualBox 4.0 on a headless Fedora 14 server. Normally you use the VirtualBox GUI to manage your virtual machines, but a server does not have a desktop environment. Fortunately, VirtualBox comes with a tool called VBoxHeadless that allows you to connect to the virtual machines over a remote desktop connection, so there's no need for the VirtualBox GUI.

Installing Cherokee With PHP5 And MySQL Support On Fedora 14

Installing Cherokee With PHP5 And MySQL Support On Fedora 14

Cherokee is a very fast, flexible and easy to configure Web Server. It supports the widespread technologies nowadays: FastCGI, SCGI, PHP, CGI, TLS and SSL encrypted connections, virtual hosts, authentication, on the fly encoding, load balancing, Apache compatible log files, and much more. This tutorial shows how you can install Cherokee on a Fedora 14 server with PHP5 support (through FastCGI) and MySQL support.

Reading Files From The Linux Kernel Space (Module/Driver) (Fedora 14)

Reading Files From The Linux Kernel Space (Module/Driver) (Fedora 14)

It seems like operations that communicate with userspace are really discouraged. And I am not arguing with that. Although it doesn't mean that they cannot be accomplished. A driver loads configuration that could be stored only on HDD. When MS Windows XP boots up it remembers that I have turned Bluetooth off so it is not powered on, unlike even the latest Linux (Fedora 14 at the moment of writing) – such functionality in many drivers was not implemented. When developer uses procfs or character devices there should be another software or script in boot sequence that is actually sending information from a file to particular device. After some time looking over the internet I have managed to write such module that reads a file.

How To Install VMware Server 2 On A Fedora 14 Desktop (Kernel 2.6.35)

How To Install VMware Server 2 On A Fedora 14 Desktop (Kernel 2.6.35)

This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Server 2 on a Fedora 14 desktop system (with kernel 2.6.35). 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).

Virtualization With KVM On A Fedora 14 Server

Virtualization With KVM On A Fedora 14 Server

This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on a Fedora 14 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.
