The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 12.2 x86_64 (Apache2, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)

The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 12.2 x86_64 (Apache2, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)

This is a detailed description about how to set up an OpenSUSE 12.2 64bit (x86_64) server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable) with PHP, CGI and SSI support, Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH, TLS and virtual mail users, BIND DNS server, Pureftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Dovecot POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, Mailman, etc. Since version 3.0.4, ISPConfig comes with full support for the nginx web server in addition to Apache; this tutorial covers the setup of a server that uses Apache, not nginx.

Installing mod_geoip for Apache2 On Ubuntu 12.04

Installing mod_geoip for Apache2 On Ubuntu 12.04

This guide explains how to set up mod_geoip with Apache2 on an Ubuntu 12.04 system. mod_geoip looks up the IP address of the client end user. This allows you to redirect or block users based on their country. You can also use this technology for your OpenX (formerly known as OpenAds or phpAdsNew) ad server to allow geo targeting.

Creating Advanced MySQL-Based Virtual Hosts On Lighttpd (Ubuntu 12.04)

Creating Advanced MySQL-Based Virtual Hosts On Lighttpd (Ubuntu 12.04)

This guide explains how you can create advanced virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Ubuntu 12.04 that are stored in a MySQL database. The method described here does not use the lighttpd mod_mysql_vhost module, and unlike mod_mysql_vhost (which allows you to store only the hostname and document root of a vhost in a database), this method allows to store individual configuration directives for each vhost in the MySQL database.

Chrooting Apache2 With mod_chroot On Debian Squeeze

Chrooting Apache2 With mod_chroot On Debian Squeeze

This guide explains how to set up mod_chroot with Apache2 on a Debian Squeeze system. With mod_chroot, you can run Apache2 in a secure chroot environment and make your server less vulnerable to break-in attempts that try to exploit vulnerabilities in Apache2 or your installed web applications.

Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On Ubuntu 12.04

Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On Ubuntu 12.04

This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with nginx on Ubuntu 12.04. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there are several ways to work around this. I will outline three solutions: the first is to proxy requests for CGI scripts to Thttpd, a small web server that has CGI support, while the second and third solution are very similar - both use a CGI wrapper to serve CGI scripts.

Running New Shopware Version 4.0.x On Nginx (LEMP) On Ubuntu 12.04

Running New Shopware Version 4.0.x On Nginx (LEMP) On Ubuntu 12.04

This tutorial shows how you can install and run the new Shopware version 4.0.x on an Ubuntu 12.04 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). Shopware is a feature-rich ecommerce platform; I will use the Community Edition here which is free. nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.

Creating Simple Virtual Hosts With mod_mysql_vhost On Lighttpd (Ubuntu 12.04)

Creating Simple Virtual Hosts With mod_mysql_vhost On Lighttpd (Ubuntu 12.04)

This guide explains how you can use mod_mysql_vhost to create simple virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Ubuntu 12.04. With mod_mysql_vhost, lighttpd can read the vhost configuration from a MySQL database. Currently, you can store the domain and the document root in the MySQL database which results in very simple virtual hosts. If you need more directives for your vhosts, you'd have to configure them in the global section of lighttpd.conf, which means they'd be valid for all vhosts. Therefore, mod_mysql_vhost is ideal if your vhosts differ only in the domain and document root.

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On Fedora 17

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On Fedora 17

Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on a Fedora 17 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.
