Encrypt Your Data With EncFS (Debian Wheezy)

Encrypt Your Data With EncFS (Debian Wheezy)

EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in user-space. It runs without any special permissions and uses the FUSE library and Linux kernel module to provide the filesystem interface. It is a pass-through filesystem, not an encrypted block device, which means it is created on top of an existing filesystem. This tutorial shows how you can use EncFS on Debian Wheezy to encrypt your data.

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On Debian Wheezy

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On Debian Wheezy

Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on a Debian Wheezy 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.

Installing Debian Squeeze On Pogoplug v3/Oxnas Cleanly

Installing Debian Squeeze On Pogoplug v3/Oxnas Cleanly

ArchLinux ARM ("ALARM") has officially dropped support for the PogoPlug v3/Oxnas in June 2013. Actually, the Oxnas port was already broken before due to ArchLinux' cutting edge philosophy and causing users many troubles, although it was working fine somewhen in 2012. The main purpose of this tutorial is to provide instructions on how to build and install a Debian rootfs from scratch on the Pogoplug v3/Oxnas, using only official binaries from Debian and ALARM.

Removing Signatures From Various Packages

Removing Signatures From Various Packages

This tutorial shows you how to remove the Debian signature/version info from packages such as Apache, Postfix or SSH. There are various reasons to remove the signature (and therefore hide that you are using Debian/a specific version). The most important one is about security. When a hacker knows the distro you are using, he can search for well-known security issues and start an attack against them. If he doesn't know the distro in use, chances to not find any security holes are much larger.

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Debian Wheezy)

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Debian Wheezy)

This document describes how to install a Postfix mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier, so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota. Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database. In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and SquirrelMail.

How To Create A Fiber Channel SAN Using SCST With QLogic HBA On Linux Debian 6

I created this how-to as none of the other instructions on the internet work correctly. This is done specifically  for Ubuntu and Debian and is based on the 2.6.32 although with some common sense this should work with any distro and any kernel.

Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Debian Wheezy

Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Debian Wheezy

In this article I will describe how you can monitor your Debian Wheezy server with munin and monit. munin produces nifty little graphics about nearly every aspect of your server without much configuration, whereas monit checks the availability of services like Apache, MySQL, Postfix and takes the appropriate action such as a restart if it finds a service is not behaving as expected. The combination of the two gives you full monitoring: graphics that lets you recognize current or upcoming problems, and a watchdog that ensures the availability of the monitored services.
