Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 11.10
This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Ubuntu 11.10. 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.
Server Monitoring With Icinga On Ubuntu 11.10
Icinga is an enterprise grade open source monitoring system which keeps watch over networks and any conceivable network resource, notifies the user of errors and recoveries and generates performance data for reporting. It is a fork of Nagios. This tutorial explains how to install Icinga on an Ubuntu 11.10 server to monitor this server and another Ubuntu 11.10 server.

Running Feng Office (Community Edition) On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10
This tutorial shows how you can install and run Feng Office (Community Edition) on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 11.10 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). Feng Office is a web-based software that integrates project management, client relationship management, billing, financing, among other features that help you efficiently run your professional services business. nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.
Setting Up A Linux File Server Using Samba
I struggled for ages getting Samba to work reliably and made quite a few wrong turns on the way. I was just trying to set up a simple Linux file server to store music, photos etc. but eventually found a foolproof (probably) way to do it. The following works and has been tested several times on fresh installations. This is not meant to be a high security setup, all folders are accessible to everybody for read, write and delete. If you have stroppy teenagers who want exclusive access to their own area on the server, then you can use this as a starting point. A few simple changes would achieve that level of security but it is beyond the scope of this tutorial.
Running Roundcube 0.7.1 On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.10
This tutorial shows how you can install and run Roundcube webmail (version 0.7.1) 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). Roundcube webmail is a browser-based multilingual IMAP client with an application-like user interface. nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.
Setting Up ProFTPd + TLS On Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot)
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 set up ProFTPd with TLS on an Ubuntu 11.10 server.
Creating A Portable MySQL On CentOS 6 And Ubuntu 11.10 Linux From Sources
This tutorial shows how to create a portable MySQL installation on GNU/Linux. At the end of this guide you will obtain a portable MySQL installation on a target directory with its own databases, binaries, logs, pid files, etc. Consider always the use of a permission preserving packaging (like TAR) for moving the installation between systems or removable storages.
