Virtualization With KVM On An OpenSUSE 12.2 Server

Virtualization With KVM On An OpenSUSE 12.2 Server

This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on an OpenSUSE 12.2 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.

Setting Up An NFS Server And Client On OpenSUSE 12.2

Setting Up An NFS Server And Client On OpenSUSE 12.2

This guide explains how to set up an NFS server and an NFS client on OpenSUSE 12.2. NFS stands for Network File System; through NFS, a client can access (read, write) a remote share on an NFS server as if it was on the local hard disk.

How To Set Up WebDAV With Apache2 On OpenSUSE 12.2

How To Set Up WebDAV With Apache2 On OpenSUSE 12.2

This guide explains how to set up WebDAV with Apache2 on an OpenSUSE 12.2 server. WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning and is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that allow users to directly edit files on the Apache server so that they do not need to be downloaded/uploaded via FTP. Of course, WebDAV can also be used to upload and download files.

The Perfect Desktop - OpenSUSE 12.2 (GNOME Desktop)

The Perfect Desktop - OpenSUSE 12.2 (GNOME Desktop)

This tutorial shows how you can set up an OpenSUSE 12.2 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.

Chrooting Apache2 With mod_chroot On OpenSUSE 12.2

Chrooting Apache2 With mod_chroot On OpenSUSE 12.2

This guide explains how to set up mod_chroot with Apache2 on an OpenSUSE 12.2 system. With mod_chroot, you can run Apache2 in a secure chroot environment and make your server less vulnerable to break-in attempts that try to exploit vulnerabilities in Apache2 or your installed web applications.

Managing A Headless VirtualBox Installation With phpvirtualbox (OpenSUSE 12.2)

Managing A Headless VirtualBox Installation With phpvirtualbox (OpenSUSE 12.2)

phpvirtualbox is a web-based VirtualBox front-end written in PHP that allows you to access and control remote VirtualBox instances. It tries to resemble the VirtualBox GUI as much as possible to make work with it as easy as possible. It is a nice replacement for the VirtualBox GUI if you run VirtualBox on headless servers. This tutorial explains how to install phpvirtualbox on an OpenSUSE 12.2 server to manage a locally installed, headless VirtualBox.

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On OpenSUSE 12.2

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On OpenSUSE 12.2

Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on an OpenSUSE 12.2 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support. PHP-FPM (FastCGI Process Manager) is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites. I use PHP-FPM in this tutorial instead of Lighttpd's spawn-fcgi.

OpenSUSE 12.2 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

OpenSUSE 12.2 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on OpenSUSE 12.2 and how to configure it to share files over the SMB protocol as well as how to add users. Samba is configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In the resulting setup, every user has his own home directory accessible via the SMB protocol and all users have a shared directory with read-/write access.

Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On OpenSUSE 12.2 (x86_64)

Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On OpenSUSE 12.2 (x86_64)

SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY") is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google's alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression. To use SPDY, you need a web server and a browser (like Google Chrome and upcoming versions of Firefox) that both support SPDY. mod_spdy is an open-source Apache module that adds support for the SPDY protocol to the Apache HTTPD server. This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on OpenSUSE 12.2.

VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.2 On A Headless OpenSUSE 12.2 Server

VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.2 On A Headless OpenSUSE 12.2 Server

This guide explains how you can run virtual machines with VirtualBox 4.2 on a headless OpenSUSE 12.2 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.
