    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.

  • How To Set Up A Loadbalanced High-Availability Apache Cluster

    Author: Falko TimmeTags: , , Comments: 22

    How To Set Up A Loadbalanced High-Availability Apache Cluster 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.

  • Apache: Creating A Session-Aware Loadbalancer Using mod_proxy_balancer (Debian Etch)

    Author: Falko TimmeTags: , , Comments: 3

    Apache: Creating A Session-Aware Loadbalancer Using mod_proxy_balancer (Debian Etch) Since Apache 2.1, a new module called mod_proxy_balancer is available which lets you turn a system that has Apache installed into a loadbalancer. This loadbalancer retrieves requested pages from two or more backend webservers and delivers them to the user's computer. Users get the impression that they deal with just one server (the loadbalancer) when in fact there are multiple systems behind the loadbalancer that process the users' requests. By using a loadbalancer, you can lower the load average on your webservers. One important feature of mod_proxy_balancer is that it can keep track of sessions which means that a single user always deals with the same backend webserver. Most websites are database-driven nowadays with user logins etc., and you'd get weird results if a user logs in on one backend webserver, and then his next request goes to another backend webserver, meaning he'd get logged out again. You can avoid this by using mod_proxy_balancer's session-awareness.
