  • Setting Up A High-Availability Load Balancer (With Failover and Session Support) With HAProxy/Heartbeat On Debian Etch

    Author: Falko TimmeTags: , Comments: 9

    Setting Up A High-Availability Load Balancer (With Failover and Session Support) With HAProxy/Heartbeat On Debian Etch This article explains how to set up a two-node load balancer in an active/passive configuration with HAProxy and heartbeat on Debian Etch. The load balancer sits between the user and two (or more) backend Apache web servers that hold the same content. Not only does the load balancer distribute the requests to the two backend Apache servers, it also checks the health of the backend servers. If one of them is down, all requests will automatically be redirected to the remaining backend server. In addition to that, the two load balancer nodes monitor each other using heartbeat, and if the master fails, the slave becomes the master, which means the users will not notice any disruption of the service. HAProxy is session-aware, which means you can use it with any web application that makes use of sessions (such as forums, shopping carts, etc.).

    Build A HylaFax Server With AvantFax Frontend Using Debian Etch Install Debian. I used the basic barebones install option. I did some things that were done because of preference, and not necessary. I have marked them approriately. I encourage contributions from anyone who would like to add or correct something in this HowTo to contact me so I can fix it. I have installed this setup twice following these instructions and used Avantfax 2.3.0. Thanks to all the resources who helped me figure this out. Especially Razametal, who submitted a fantastic Spanish language walkthrough on ecualug.org.

  • Creating Encrypted FTP Backups With duplicity And ftplicity On Debian Etch

    Author: Falko TimmeTags: , Comments: 2

    Creating Encrypted FTP Backups With duplicity And ftplicity On Debian Etch When you rent a dedicated server nowadays, almost all providers give you FTP backup space for your server on one of the provider's backup systems. This tutorial shows how you can use duplicity and ftplicity to create encrypted (so that nobody with access to the backup server can read sensitive data in your backups) backups on the provider's remote backup server over FTP. ftplicity is a duplicity wrapper script (provided by the German computer magazine c't) that allows us to use duplicity without interaction (i.e., you do not have to type in any passwords).

  • Setting Up A Debian Packages Proxy With apt-cacher

    Author: olivierolejniczakTags: Comments: 2

    Setting Up A Debian Packages Proxy With apt-cacher There are many ways to install a Debian Linux but the most common is certainly to use the net-install 160MB CDROM. You can download it from http://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/. Booting up your PC from this CD, you will be capable of setting-up a basic Linux system; downloading updates, extra softwares and language support directly from the Internet. But using this method of installation on more than one PC in your LAN results in a massive waste of your precious bandwidth. Therefore, maybe you should consider using a cloning utility like “Sysimager”. But, as it is most likely that every computer will be slightly different one from another one, you should consider setting up a Debian Package Proxy as a long term solution.
