Managing A Headless VirtualBox Installation With phpvirtualbox On nginx (Ubuntu 12.04)

Managing A Headless VirtualBox Installation With phpvirtualbox On nginx (Ubuntu 12.04)

phpvirtualbox is a web-based VirtualBox front-end written in PHP that allows you to access and control remote VirtualBox instances. It tries to resemble the VirtualBox GUI as much as possible to make work with it as easy as possible. It is a nice replacement for the VirtualBox GUI if you run VirtualBox in headless servers. This tutorial explains how to install phpvirtualbox with nginx on an Ubuntu 12.04 server to manage a locally installed, headless VirtualBox.

Creating Advanced MySQL-Based Virtual Hosts On Lighttpd (Debian Squeeze)

Creating Advanced MySQL-Based Virtual Hosts On Lighttpd (Debian Squeeze)

This guide explains how you can create advanced virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Debian Squeeze that are stored in a MySQL database. The method described here does not use the lighttpd mod_mysql_vhost module, and unlike mod_mysql_vhost (which allows you to store only the hostname and document root of a vhost in a database), this method allows to store individual configuration directives for each vhost in the MySQL database.

Creating Simple Virtual Hosts With mod_mysql_vhost On Lighttpd (Debian Squeeze)

Creating Simple Virtual Hosts With mod_mysql_vhost On Lighttpd (Debian Squeeze)

This guide explains how you can use mod_mysql_vhost to create simple virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Debian Squeeze. With mod_mysql_vhost, lighttpd can read the vhost configuration from a MySQL database. Currently, you can store the domain and the document root in the MySQL database which results in very simple virtual hosts. If you need more directives for your vhosts, you'd have to configure them in the global section of lighttpd.conf, which means they'd be valid for all vhosts. Therefore, mod_mysql_vhost is ideal if your vhosts differ only in the domain and document root.

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On CentOS 6.3

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On CentOS 6.3

Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on a Centos 6.3 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support. PHP-FPM (FastCGI Process Manager) is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites. I use PHP-FPM in this tutorial instead of Lighttpd's spawn-fcgi.
