Rate Limiting With nginx
This article explains how to use the nginx HttpLimitReqModule to limit the number of requests for a given session. This is useful, for example, if your site is hammered by a bot doing multiple requests per second and thus increasing your server load. With the HttpLimitReqModule you can define a rate limit, and if a visitor exceeds this rate, he will get a 503 error.
Installing Nginx With PHP5 (And PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support (LEMP) On Ubuntu 12.10
Nginx (pronounced "engine x") is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server. Nginx is known for its stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption. This tutorial shows how you can install Nginx on an Ubuntu 12.10 server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP).
Installing Apache2 With PHP5 And MySQL Support On Ubuntu 12.10 (LAMP)

The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 12.10 (Apache2, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)
This tutorial shows how to prepare an Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) server (with Apache2, BIND, Dovecot) for the installation of ISPConfig 3, and how to install ISPConfig 3.

This setup covers Apache (instead of nginx), BIND (instead of MyDNS), and Dovecot (instead of Courier).
How To Set Up WebDAV With Apache2 On OpenSUSE 12.2
This guide explains how to set up WebDAV with Apache2 on an OpenSUSE 12.2 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 Apache 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.
Chrooting Apache2 With mod_chroot On OpenSUSE 12.2
This guide explains how to set up mod_chroot with Apache2 on an OpenSUSE 12.2 system. With mod_chroot, you can run Apache2 in a secure chroot environment and make your server less vulnerable to break-in attempts that try to exploit vulnerabilities in Apache2 or your installed web applications.

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On OpenSUSE 12.2
Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on an OpenSUSE 12.2 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.
Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On OpenSUSE 12.2 (x86_64)
SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY") is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google's alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression. To use SPDY, you need a web server and a browser (like Google Chrome and upcoming versions of Firefox) that both support SPDY. mod_spdy is an open-source Apache module that adds support for the SPDY protocol to the Apache HTTPD server. This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on OpenSUSE 12.2.
