Installing And Using OpenVZ On Debian Wheezy (AMD64)

Installing And Using OpenVZ On Debian Wheezy (AMD64)

In this HowTo I will describe how to prepare a Debian Wheezy server for OpenVZ. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual Private Servers (VPS) on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the Linux Vserver project. OpenVZ is the open-source branch of Virtuozzo, a commercial virtualization solution used by many providers that offer virtual servers. The OpenVZ kernel patch is licensed under the GPL license, and the user-level tools are under the QPL license.

Do you need a single point to add users within your organization for authenticating to multiple backends like your Linux servers? You've probably looked at OpenLDAP and found the same problem a lot of other users have: bad documentation and ridiculously hard to configure.

nginx: How To Set A Connection Limit For Search Engine Bots Gone Wild (Especially Bingbot)

nginx: How To Set A Connection Limit For Search Engine Bots Gone Wild (Especially Bingbot)

As a server administrator you might know this problem: you have done everything to optimize your server and it's working really well, and along comes a stupid search engine bot (like Bingbot) and hits all your vhosts at the same time with hundreds of connections, making your server load go up. Of course, you don't want to completely block the bot (unless you don't care about that particular search engine), so you can use robots.txt and/or nginx to control connections of a search engine bot to your server.

In this tutorial I'll explain how to setup a subversion repository for PHP Javascript development. The SVN repository will be used by multiple users using an SSH key to logon to the server. All users will use the svn system user but we'll use the SSH key to identify the user. A pre-commit hook will be used to validate the PHP and Javascript to comply with coding rules.
