Nginx Catch-All Host As Front End To Apache For ISPConfig 3 On Debian Lenny

Nginx Catch-All Host As Front End To Apache For ISPConfig 3 On Debian Lenny

Apache has always been the web server of choice for me. It is a real beast when it comes to resources usage specially in a resource limited environment such as a VPS. I started playing with Nginx a lightweight, high performance web server. My area of interest was running Nginx as a reverse proxy and making it work in a Apache/ISPConfig 3 environment.

The Perfect Subversion Server - Debian Lenny [ISPConfig3]

The Perfect Subversion Server - Debian Lenny [ISPConfig3]

Subversion is a free/open-source version control system. That is, Subversion manages files and directories, and the changes made to them, over time. This allows you to recover older versions of your data, or examine the history of how your data changed. In this regard, many people think of a version control system as a sort of "time machine". This guide will help you setup the subversion system, and integrate it with your existing ISPConfig3 installation allowing you control over disk usage, quota and other factors in a very familiar way. Perhaps one day, somebody can use this process to create a plug in for ISPConfig3 that does all of this automatically.

Drupal 6 Hosting With nginx And PHP-FastCGI On Ubuntu 9.10

Drupal 6 Hosting With nginx And PHP-FastCGI On Ubuntu 9.10

Drupal is a great CMS but is a bit hefty when you host it on bargain-basement shared hosting, and virtual private servers are great but memory-constrained at the low-end. Apache can be a big offender when it comes to resource usage, so a nice alternative is nginx, a fast, light-weight and efficient http server that supports PHP via PHP-FastCGI. So this is a pretty slick setup for hosting Drupal, and I've taken a few different howtos and forum posts to put together this guide, which should have all you need in one stop, including a working URL rewrite config.

Build Your Own Video Community With Lighttpd And FlowPlayer (Ubuntu 9.10)

This article shows how you can build your own video community using lighttpd with its mod_flv_streaming module (for streaming .flv videos, the format used by most major video communities such as YouTube) and its mod_secdownload module (for preventing hotlinking of the videos) on Ubuntu 9.10. I will use FlowPlayer as the video player, a free Flash video player with support for lighttpd's mod_flv_streaming module. I will also show how you can encode videos (.mp4 .mov .mpg .3gp .mpeg .wmv .avi) to the FLV format supported by Adobe Flash.
