How To Build mod_fastcgi For Apache2 On OpenSUSE 12.2

How To Build mod_fastcgi For Apache2 On OpenSUSE 12.2

mod_fastcgi is needed for Apache prior to 2.4 to work with PHP-FPM. There is an apache2-mod_fastcgi package for OpenSUSE, but unfortunately it is buggy: it does not allow you to use the FastCgiExternalServer directive inside a vhost, although the official mod_fastcgi documentation says that this is allowed. This guide explains how to build a new mod_fastcgi from the sources for Apache2 on an OpenSUSE 12.2 system to fix this problem.

Encrypt Your Data With EncFS (OpenSUSE 12.2)

Encrypt Your Data With EncFS (OpenSUSE 12.2)

EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in user-space. It runs without any special permissions and uses the FUSE library and Linux kernel module to provide the filesystem interface. It is a pass-through filesystem, not an encrypted block device, which means it is created on top of an existing filesystem. This tutorial shows how you can use EncFS on OpenSUSE 12.2 to encrypt your data.

How To Set Up Apache2 With mod_fcgid And PHP5 On OpenSUSE 12.2

This tutorial describes how you can install Apache2 with mod_fcgid and PHP5 on OpenSUSE 12.2. 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.

Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On OpenSUSE 12.2

Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On OpenSUSE 12.2

This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with nginx on OpenSUSE 12.2. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there are several ways to work around this. I will outline two solutions: the first is to proxy requests for CGI scripts to Thttpd, a small web server that has CGI support, while the second solution uses a CGI wrapper to serve CGI scripts.

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

Nginx (pronounced "engine x") is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server. Nginx is known for its stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption. This tutorial shows how you can install Nginx on an OpenSUSE 12.2 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support.

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

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.
