How To Block Spammers/Hackers With Apache2's mod_spamhaus (Debian Etch)

How To Block Spammers/Hackers With Apache2's mod_spamhaus (Debian Etch)

mod_spamhaus is an Apache module that uses DNSBL in order to block spam relay via web forms, preventing URL injection, block http DDoS attacks from bots and generally protecting your web service denying access to a known bad IP address.

Installing memcached And The PHP5 memcache Module On Debian Etch (Apache2)

Installing memcached And The PHP5 memcache Module On Debian Etch (Apache2)

This guide explains how to install memcached and the PHP5 memcache module on a Debian Etch system with Apache2. memcached is a daemon that can store objects in the system's memory (e.g. results of database queries) which can speed up your web site tremendously. You can use memcached over a network (i.e., install your web application on one server and memcached on another server), but usually you install both on one server to avoid the networking overhead.

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 And MySQL Support On Fedora 9

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 And MySQL Support On Fedora 9

Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on a Fedora 9 server with PHP5 support (through FastCGI) and MySQL support.

Integrating eAccelerator Into PHP5 And Lighttpd (Debian Etch)

Integrating eAccelerator Into PHP5 And Lighttpd (Debian Etch)

This guide explains how to integrate eAccelerator into PHP5 and lighttpd on a Debian Etch system. From the eAccelerator project page: "eAccelerator is a free open-source PHP accelerator, optimizer, and dynamic content cache. It increases the performance of PHP scripts by caching them in their compiled state, so that the overhead of compiling is almost completely eliminated. It also optimizes scripts to speed up their execution. eAccelerator typically reduces server load and increases the speed of your PHP code by 1-10 times."

How To Set Up WebDAV With Lighttpd On Mandriva 2008.1

How To Set Up WebDAV With Lighttpd On Mandriva 2008.1

This guide explains how to set up WebDAV with lighttpd on a Mandriva 2008.1 server. WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning and is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that allow users to directly edit files on the lighttpd server so that they do not need to be downloaded/uploaded via FTP. Of course, WebDAV can also be used to upload and download files.

How To Set Up Apache, Tomcat (mod_jk), SSO (CAS, mod_auth_cas)

How To Set Up Apache, Tomcat (mod_jk), SSO (CAS, mod_auth_cas)

This article describes how you can set up Apache and Tomcat, linked with mod_jk. It also explains how you set up the SSO (single sign on) solution JA-SIG CAS to protect servlets (provided by tomcat) and static content (provided by Apache). I worked with OpenSuse 10.2 and 11, Apache2, Tomcat 5.5 and 6. It should work on other distributions as well.

Running Vhosts Under Separate UIDs/GIDs With Apache2 mpm-peruser On Debian Etch

Running Vhosts Under Separate UIDs/GIDs With Apache2 mpm-peruser On Debian Etch

This article explains how you can install and configure apache2-mpm-peruser on a Debian Etch server. apache2-mpm-peruser is an MPM (Multi-Processing Module) for the Apache 2 web server, very similar to apache2-mpm-itk, but faster (almost as fast as apache2-mpm-prefork). mpm-peruser allows you to run each of your vhosts 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. It is based on metuxmpm, a working implementation of the perchild MPM. The result is a sane and secure web server environment for your users, without kludges like PHP's safe_mode.

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

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

This guide explains how you can create advanced virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Debian Etch 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.

Running Vhosts Under Separate UIDs/GIDs With Apache2 mpm-itk On Debian Etch

Running Vhosts Under Separate UIDs/GIDs With Apache2 mpm-itk On Debian Etch

This article explains how you can install and configure apache2-mpm-itk on a Debian Etch 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.
