The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 12.10 (nginx, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)

The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 12.10 (nginx, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)

This tutorial shows how to prepare an Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) server (with nginx, BIND, Dovecot) for the installation of ISPConfig 3, and how to install ISPConfig 3. ISPConfig 3 is a webhosting control panel that allows you to configure the following services through a web browser: Apache or nginx web server, Postfix mail server, Courier or Dovecot IMAP/POP3 server, MySQL, BIND or MyDNS nameserver, PureFTPd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and many more. This setup covers nginx (instead of Apache), BIND (instead of MyDNS), and Dovecot (instead of Courier).

Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10

Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.10) to one large storage server (distributed storage) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 12.10 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Distributed Replicated Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10

Distributed Replicated Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.10) to a distributed replicated storage with GlusterFS. Nodes 1 and 2 (replication1) as well as 3 and 4 (replication2) will mirror each other, and replication1 and replication2 will be combined to one larger storage server (distribution). Basically, this is RAID10 over network. If you lose one server from replication1 and one from replication2, the distributed volume continues to work. The client system (Ubuntu 12.10 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Running Contao 3.x On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Wheezy/Ubuntu 12.10

Running Contao 3.x On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Wheezy/Ubuntu 12.10

This tutorial shows how you can install and run a Contao 3.x web site on a Debian Wheezy or Ubuntu 12.10 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.

Striping Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10

Striping Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10

This tutorial shows how to do data striping (segmentation of logically sequential data, such as a single file, so that segments can be assigned to multiple physical devices in a round-robin fashion and thus written concurrently) across four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.10) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 12.10 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Automatic File Replication (Mirror) Across Two Storage Servers With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10 - Automatic File Replication (Mirror) Across Two Storage Servers

This tutorial shows how to set up a high-availability storage with two storage servers (Ubuntu 12.10) that use GlusterFS. Each storage server will be a mirror of the other storage server, and files will be replicated automatically across both storage servers. The client system (Ubuntu 12.10 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

How To Back Up MySQL Databases With mylvmbackup On Ubuntu 12.10

How To Back Up MySQL Databases With mylvmbackup On Ubuntu 12.10

mylvmbackup is a Perl script for quickly creating MySQL backups. It uses LVM's snapshot feature to do so. To perform a backup, mylvmbackup obtains a read lock on all tables and flushes all server caches to disk, creates a snapshot of the volume containing the MySQL data directory, and unlocks the tables again. This article shows how to use it on an Ubuntu 12.10 server.

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.10

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Ubuntu 12.10. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS here. The client system will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

How To Install Percona Server 5.5 On Ubuntu 12.10

How To Install Percona Server 5.5 On Ubuntu 12.10

Percona Server is a drop-in replacement for MySQL. It offers more performance and scalability than the default MySQL server coming with your Linux distribution, while it uses the same init scripts and command line tools which makes it easy to use. This tutorial explains how to install Percona Server 5.5 on Ubuntu 12.10.

Using The btrfs Filesystem (With RAID1) With Ubuntu 12.10 On A Hetzner Server

Using The btrfs Filesystem (With RAID1) With Ubuntu 12.10 On A Hetzner Server

This tutorial shows how to install Ubuntu 12.10 on the btrfs filesystem (with RAID1) on a Hetzner server with two hard drives. While Hetzner's installimage tool doesn't list btrfs as a supported filesystem and only supports software RAID with /dev/md devices, it is still possible to achieve this setup and use the built-in RAID support in btrfs instead of using /dev/md devices.
