Installing VirtualBox 2.0 On An Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop

This tutorial shows how you can install Sun xVM VirtualBox on an Ubuntu 8.10 desktop. With VirtualBox you can create and run guest operating systems ("virtual machines") such as Linux and Windows under a host operating system. There are two ways of installing VirtualBox: from precompiled binaries that are available for some distributions and come under the PUEL license, and from the sources that are released under the GPL. This article will show how to set up VirtualBox 2.0 from the precompiled binaries.

How To Configure Apache To Use Radius For Two-Factor Authentication On Ubuntu

This document describes how to add WiKID two-factor authentication to Apache 2.x using mod_auth_radius on Ubuntu 8.1. A previous article described how to add two factor authentication to apache on Fedora. Interestingly, a patch has been created to update mod_auth_radius to work with Apache 2.2+, however, it has only been updated for Debian and Ubuntu. For Fedora and other RedHat flavors of Linux, it is recommended that you use mod_auth_xradius.

How To Install And Configure Cherokee Web Server With PHP 5 And MySQL 5 Support On Ubuntu 8.10 Server (Intrepid Ibex)

How To Install And Configure Cherokee Web Server With PHP 5 And MySQL 5 Support On Ubuntu 8.10 Server (Intrepid Ibex)

This tutorial shows how to install Cherokee from source with PHP and MySQL support on a Ubuntu 8.10 server machine. The reason for compiling from source instead of using apt to install binary packages is that there are older versions in the repositories than the ones available on Cherokee's homepage. The main goal is to install the webserver so I didn't bother compiling everything else. That way you won't spend to much time on doing things I didn't want to describe.

With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems ("virtual machines") such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system. This has the benefit that you can run multiple operating systems on the same hardware which saves a lot of money, and you can move virtual machines from one VMware Server to the next one (or to a system that has the VMware Player which is also free).

Setting Up ProFTPd + TLS On Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex)

Setting Up ProFTPd + TLS On Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex)

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 8.10)

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 8.10)

This document describes how to install a mail server based on Postfix that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota (quota is not built into Postfix by default, I'll show how to patch your Postfix appropriately). Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database (most documents I found were dealing with plain text passwords which is a security risk). In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses. I will also show how to install SquirrelMail as a webmail interface so that users can read and send emails and change their passwords.

How To Back Up An Ubuntu 8.10 System With SystemImager

How To Back Up An Ubuntu 8.10 System With SystemImager

SystemImager lets you create images of your Linux installations. To do so, you need an image server (should have enough disk space to store your images) and a so-called golden client (i.e., the system of which you want to make an image). This means that you have to install some software on your image server and on your golden client in order to run SystemImager. This tutorial shows how to install a SystemImager server and a SystemImager client, both using Ubuntu 8.10, and how to create/update/restore/delete images.
