Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On Fedora 17

Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On Fedora 17

This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with nginx on Fedora 17. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there are several ways to work around this. I will outline two solutions: the first is to proxy requests for CGI scripts to Thttpd, a small web server that has CGI support, while the second solution uses a CGI wrapper to serve CGI scripts.

Configuring Your LEMP System (Linux, nginx, MySQL, PHP-FPM) For Maximum Performance

Configuring Your LEMP System (Linux, nginx, MySQL, PHP-FPM) For Maximum Performance

If you are using nginx as your webserver, you are looking for a performance boost and better speed. nginx is fast by default, but you can optimize its performance and the performance of all parts (like PHP and MySQL) that work together with nginx. Here is a small, incomprehensive list of tips and tricks to configure your LEMP system (Linux, nginx, MySQL, PHP-FPM) for maximum performance. These tricks work for me, but your mileage may vary. Do not implement them all at once, but one by one and check what effect the modification has on your system's performance.

Using GeoIP With Nginx On Ubuntu 12.04

Using GeoIP With Nginx On Ubuntu 12.04

Managing Multiple MySQL Servers From One phpMyAdmin Installation (Using SSL Encryption)

Managing Multiple MySQL Servers From One phpMyAdmin Installation (Using SSL Encryption)

This tutorial explains how you can manage multiple MySQL servers from one phpMyAdmin installation. For security reasons, communication between phpMyAdmin and any remote MySQL server is using SSL encryption (this is not necessary for a local MySQL server since communication between phpMyAdmin and MySQL is not leaving the server). phpMyAdmin is a free software tool written in PHP, intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the World Wide Web. phpMyAdmin supports a wide range of operations with MySQL.

Sharing Terminal Sessions With Tmux And Screen

Sharing Terminal Sessions With Tmux And Screen

tmux and GNU Screen are well-known utilities which allow multiplexing of virtual consoles. Using either, it is possible to start a session, detach, move to a different machine and resume the session in uninterrupted progress. It's also possible to use these tools to share a single session between more than one user at the same time.
