HOWTO: Unlock A LUKS Encrypted Root Partition Via SSH On Ubuntu

HOWTO: Unlock A LUKS Encrypted Root Partition Via SSH On Ubuntu

Fully encrypted systems prevent others from getting your data from physical access. The rationale behind the encryption of a complete system is that you don't have worry about what you encrypt and what not, because everything (except for the /boot) partition will be encrypted. However the problem I have encountered so far is, how could I reboot my computer from afar? I would be required to be in front of the computer and enter the password. I have wondered this far how I could reboot the computer remotely.

How To Set Up A Loadbalanced High-Availability Apache Cluster Based On Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

How To Set Up A Loadbalanced High-Availability Apache Cluster Based On Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

This tutorial shows how to set up a two-node Apache web server cluster that provides high-availability. In front of the Apache cluster we create a load balancer that splits up incoming requests between the two Apache nodes. Because we do not want the load balancer to become another "Single Point Of Failure", we must provide high-availability for the load balancer, too. Therefore our load balancer will in fact consist out of two load balancer nodes that monitor each other using heartbeat, and if one load balancer fails, the other takes over silently.
