How to configure Squid for two-factor authentication from WiKID

How to configure Squid for two-factor authentication from WiKID

In this guide we will show how Squid can be configured to support two-factor authentication from a WiKID server, allowing users to be centrally authenticated, but their requests still distributed for efficiency.

How To Enable Multiple HTTPS Sites For One IP On Debian Etch Using TLS Extensions

How To Enable Multiple HTTPS Sites For One IP On Debian Etch Using TLS Extensions

This how-to is Debian specific but could be ported to other distributions since the concept is the same. In order to use TLS Extensions we have to patch and recompile apache2 and recompile OpenSSL with the enable-tlsext directive. Since TLS Extensions are relatively new, some internet browsers will not work so the apache2 server will deliver just the default site as http 1.0 does on an http 1.1 server.

Monitoring Tomcat 5.0 on Ubuntu

Monitoring Tomcat 5.0 on Ubuntu

This document describes how to set up and enable Hyperic HQ for monitoring on Ubuntu and Tomcat. The resulting system provides a comprehensive, web-based Systems Management Software. It's the next stage of classical monitoring and able to manage all kinds of operating systems, web servers, application servers and database servers. The install comes prepared to monitor almost 70 different technologies natively and provides many detailed features. For brevity sake, I won't list all of them here. Hyperic HQ is available as an open source distribution licensed under the GPL v2.

Merging Multiple Apache Access Logs Into One Overall Access Log

Merging Multiple Apache Access Logs Into One Overall Access Log

Let's assume you have a web application that runs of a cluster of Apache nodes. Each node generates its own Apache access log from which you can generate page view statistics with tools such as Webalizer or AWStats. Obviously you do not want to have page view statistics for each Apache node, but overall page view statistics. To achieve this, we must merge the access logs from each node into one overall access log that we can then feed into Webalizer or AWstats. There is a Perl script called logresolvemerge.pl (part of the AWStats package) that can do this for us.

Have Your Own (Chrooted) Debian LAMP Server While Running The Perfect Ubuntu Desktop

Have Your Own (Chrooted) Debian LAMP Server While Running The Perfect Ubuntu Desktop

This is a brief description about the steps to be taken to setup a Debian based Webserver (Debian Sarge alias Debian 3.1) that will run chrooted under Ubuntu 7.04.

PHP Access To An MSSQL Database From Debian Etch With ODBC And FreeTDS

PHP Access To An MSSQL Database From Debian Etch With ODBC And FreeTDS

This assumes you already have Apache2 and PHP5 set up properly on your system. My efforts to get this connection working were compiled from information found at www.unixodbc.org and www.freetds.org. These steps worked for me with an Apache2 web server with php5 running on Debian Etch stable in October of 2007. The SQL server is running Microsoft SQL 2005 on a Windows 2003 Server OS.

Defining Macros With mod_macro In Apache

Defining Macros With mod_macro In Apache

This guide is about mod_macro, which makes the job of managing an Apache webserver much easier, or just for the home developer with several test pages or projects. I will explain how to get it running and give some examples of how I use the module, to help you get started with using it.

How To Tell Apache To Not Log Certain Requests In Its Access Log

How To Tell Apache To Not Log Certain Requests In Its Access Log

Normally Apache logs all requests in its access log. In certain cases this can distort your page view statistics (if you use a tool like Webalizer or AWStats that creates statistics based on Apache's access log), for example if you get lots of visits from search engine spiders or from a certain IP address (e.g. your own), or if each of your pages includes another page (e.g. in an iframe) from your web site (that would instantly double your page views which is obviously not correct). This short guide shows how you use Apache's SetEnvIf directive to prevent Apache from logging such requests.
