  • Using Ruby On Rails With Apache2 On Debian Etch

    Author: falkoTags: , Comments: 7

    Using Ruby On Rails With Apache2 On Debian Etch This article shows how you can install Ruby on Rails (RoR) and integrate it in Apache2 on a Debian Etch system (including a short section at the end showing how to use RoR in a web site created with ISPConfig). Ruby on Rails is a web application framework which is rapidly gaining popularity among web programmers. It aims to increase the speed and ease with which database-driven web sites can be created and offers skeleton code frameworks (scaffolding) from the outset. Applications using the RoR framework are developed using the Model-View-Controller design pattern.

  • Retrieving Emails From Remote Servers With fetchmail (Debian Etch)

    Author: falkoTags: , Comments: 9

    Retrieving Emails From Remote Servers With fetchmail (Debian Etch) Fetchmail is a program for retrieving emails from remote servers. Imagine you have five email accounts on five different servers. Of course, you don't want to connect to each of them to get your emails. This is where fetchmail comes into play. If you have a user account on a Linux server, you can make fetchmail download emails from remote servers and put them into just one mailbox (the one of your Linux user), from where you can retrieve them with your email client (e.g. Thunderbird or Outlook).

  • Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Debian Etch

    debian Author: falkoTags: , Comments: 5

    Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Debian Etch In this article I will describe how you can monitor your Debian Etch server with munin and monit. munin produces nifty little graphics about nearly every aspect of your server (load average, memory usage, CPU usage, MySQL throughput, eth0 traffic, etc.) 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 let you recognize current or upcoming problems (like "We need a bigger server soon, our load average is increasing rapidly."), and a watchdog that ensures the availability of the monitored services.

    Setting up Subversion and websvn on Debian This howto will illustrate a way to install and configure Subversion and websvn on a Debian server. I will not specifically configure inetd with svnserve in this howto. Rest assured that Subversion will be totally functional without it. You can copy/paste most of the howto to get it working.

  • Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On Debian Etch

    Author: falkoTags: , Comments: 2

    Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On Debian Etch This document describes how to install a PureFTPd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota and upload/download bandwidth limits with this setup. Passwords will be stored encrypted as MD5 strings in the database.

  • Preventing Brute Force Attacks With Fail2ban On Debian Etch

    Author: falkoTags: , Comments: 17

    Preventing Brute Force Attacks With Fail2ban On Debian Etch In this article I will show how to install and configure fail2ban on a Debian Etch system. Fail2ban is a tool that observes login attempts to various services, e.g. SSH, FTP, SMTP, Apache, etc., and if it finds failed login attempts again and again from the same IP address or host, fail2ban stops further login attempts from that IP address/host by blocking it with an iptables firewall rule.

  • The Perfect Desktop - Debian Etch (Debian 4.0)

    apache Author: falkoTags: , Comments: 11

    The Perfect Desktop - Debian Etch (Debian 4.0) With the release of Microsoft's new Windows operating system (Vista), more and more people are looking for alternatives to Windows for various reasons. In this tutorial I will show people who are willing to switch to Linux how they can set up a Linux desktop (Debian Etch in this article) that fully replaces their Windows desktop, i.e. that has all software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that runs also on older hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.

  • ColdFusion 7.x Installation on Debian Sarge (3.1r1) Linux

    Author: demirkapiTags: Comments: 12

    I will try to explain here a clean Debian Sarge 3.1r1 and ColdFusion MX 7.0.1 installation. Why This Tutorial? Because there is no documentation about ColdFusion installation on Debian on the internet. As you know Debian Linux is not supported officially by Adobe. But Debian is one of the mosts used and well known Linux distributions especially for server usage and I think there would be some other people who want to use Debian and ColdFusion together.

  • Bluetooth PAND (Personal Area Network) Howto For Debian Etch

    Author: zdenekboureshTags: , Comments: 10

    Bluetooth PAND (Personal Area Network) Howto For Debian Etch I wanted to access the internet over bluetooth instead of GPRS/3G network from my mobile phone (SE K800i). After a lot of searching I couldn't find a clear explanation as how to accomplish this. I did manage to set it up with Windows XP, using the "Personal Area Network" in the bluetooth utility and doing internet connection sharing. After another fruitless search, I managed to figure out how to make a bluetooth internet profile instead of GPRS or 3G on the phone. Since I work in Linux most of the time, I decided to have a go and do it with Debian, my workstation's main OS. After spending a few hours, I had it working using the steps below.
