Squid Proxy Server On Ubuntu 9.04 Server With DansGuardian, ClamAV, And WPAD (Proxy Auto-Detection)

This tutorial will demonstrate how to set up a Squid Proxy server on Ubuntu 9.04 with DansGuardian (for content filtering) and ClamAV (for Virus scanning); in addition, we will set up Web Proxy AutoDetection (WPAD) through DHCP (in this case, either dhcp3 OR the Windows Server 2003 DHCP server) or DNS so that the only configuration necessary on the client side is to check "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network" in Firefox or Internet Explorer. At the end of the tutorial, users will have a fully functional and secure proxy for HTTP access. In addition, the final section will show users how to connect to this proxy server via SSH in order to have a protected browsing session while away from the home/office.

Running Vhosts Under Separate UIDs/GIDs With Apache2 mpm-itk On Ubuntu 9.04

Running Vhosts Under Separate UIDs/GIDs With Apache2 mpm-itk On Ubuntu 9.04

This article explains how you can install and configure apache2-mpm-itk on an Ubuntu 9.04 server. apache2-mpm-itk is an MPM (Multi-Processing Module) for the Apache 2 web server. mpm-itk allows you to run each of your vhost under a separate UID and GID - in short, the scripts and configuration files for one vhost no longer have to be readable for all the other vhosts. mpm-itk works with mod_php because mpm-itk is based on the traditional prefork MPM, which means it's non-threaded. This means you don't need to use suExec or suPHP anymore to run a website's PHP scripts as a separate user.

The Perfect Desktop - Linux Mint 7 (Gloria)

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Linux Mint 7 (Gloria) 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. Linux Mint 7 is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu 9.04 that has lots of packages in its repositories (like multimedia codecs, Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, Skype, Google Earth, etc.) that are relatively hard to install on other distributions; it therefore provides a user-friendly desktop experience even for Linux newbies.
