Securing Your ISPConfig 3 Installation With A Free Class1 SSL Certificate From StartSSL
This tutorial shows how you can use a free Class1 SSL Certificate from StartSSL to secure your ISPConfig 3 installation and get rid of self-signed certificate warnings. The guide covers using the SSL certificate for the ISPConfig web interface (both Apache2 and nginx), Postfix (for TLS connections), Courier and Dovecot (for POP3s and IMAPs), and PureFTPd (for TLS/FTPES connections). If you've installed monit and use HTTPS for its web interface, I will show you how to use the StartSSL certificate for it as well. This guide assumes you use Debian or Ubuntu; the principle is the same for other distributions supported by ISPConfig 3, but paths might differ.
Use Minitube To Watch YouTube Videos On Your Desktop (Linux Mint 11)
This article is about how to watch YouTube videos on your desktop with a tool called Minitube. Minitube is a piece of software with a nice GUI that lets you enter keywords into a searchbar just like on youtube.com to display a list where you can choose your desired video from.

Ubuntu 11.10 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend
This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Ubuntu 11.10 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.
Running TYPO3 4.6 On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10
This tutorial shows how you can install and run a TYPO3 (version 4.6) web site on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 11.10 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). The guide also covers the use of the nc_staticfilecache extension which allows TYPO3 to cache pages as complete .html files for faster delivery (increases response times for static pages by a factor of 230; it's similar to Drupal's Boost module). nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.
Introduction To The Enlightenment 17 Window Manager For X (Ubuntu 11.10)
This tutorial is supposed to show some features of the Enlightenment window manager as an alternative to the often used Gnome and KDE managers. I will install Enlightenment on a desktop computer with Ubuntu 11.10 installed. Apart from the login screen however, all of the controls shown on the screenshots should be the same for every installation of enlightenment, whatever distribution you install it on. Enlightenment is already included in the Ubuntu repositories, therefore Ubuntu users and those of any Ubuntu derivatives won't have any problems installing it. It is also available for download for most other distributions though.
Configuring CAS On Ubuntu For Two-Factor Authentication With WiKID
Single sign-on is a great technology. Requiring users to login to multiple applications is huge hassle, encourages password reuse and simple passwords. Security needs to focus on usability. If you can make a user's life better while increasing security, everybody wins. In this how-to we will set up the open-source CAS SSO product with the WiKID Strong Authentication Server for two-factor authentication for sessions and mutual https authentication for host authentication. Obviously using two-factor authentication for the login increases security because the user must have the factors to get access, in this case, knowledge of the PIN and possession of the private key embedded in the token. The CAS server is running on Ubuntu 11.04 Server and is using Radius to talk to the WiKID Strong Authentication Server Enterprise Edition.
Setting Up Unison File Synchronization Between Two Servers On Ubuntu 11.10
This tutorial shows how to set up file synchronization between two Ubuntu 11.10 servers with Unison. Unison is a file-synchronization tool similar to rsync, but the big difference is that it tracks/synchronizes changes in both directions, i.e., files changed on server1 will be replicated to server2 and vice versa.
Finding Out Package Dependencies With apt-rdepends On Debian/Ubuntu
Sometimes you need to find out all the dependencies of a package. This tutorial explains how to use apt-rdepends to recursively list all dependencies of a Debian/Ubuntu package.
Enabling Compiz On Linux Mint 12 (GNOME Classic)
This tutorial shows how you can enable Compiz on a Linux Mint 12 Lisa desktop (the system must have a 3D-capable graphics card - I'm using an NVIDIA GeForce 8200 here). With Compiz you can use beautiful 3D effects like wobbly windows or a desktop cube on your desktop. Compiz is not supported on GNOME 3 yet, that's why this how-to is applicable only for the classic GNOME desktop.
Running Joomla 1.7 On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10
This tutorial shows how you can install and run a Joomla 1.7 web site on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 11.10 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.
