    Installing MySQL And phpMyAdmin On FreeNAS This howto was written when I needed to run some php based web applications and the only system around was FreeNAS.

  • Entering A Safe Mirror When Logging In With Unionfs And Chroot

    Author: stefbonTags: , , Comments: 1

    Entering A Safe Mirror When Logging In With Unionfs And Chroot When reading a 'hint' on the website of LinuxFromScratch I discovered the special capabilities of unionfs, specially in combination with chroot. Later I read a HowTo on a wikiwebsite of Gentoo, about entering a chrooted homedirectory when using a special script as shell. Combining these two brings me to using a chrooted environment, which you enter when logging in as a special user. This environment is a exact copy (mirror) of the system you're working on. Because you're in safe copy of the real system, you can do whatever you like, it will never change the system, everything stays inside the cache (the readwrite branch).

    NTFS Disk Recovery Mary, the daughter of a friend is in college: her Windows XP laptop constantly reboots and, we suspect, has a bad hard drive. The system will boot a live CD (Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala Desktop), and data on the hard drive can be read. During boot, the live CD identifies disk errors and tries unsuccessfully to repair them.

    Author: dfedTags: , , , Comments: 4

    How To Build A Standalone File Server With Nexenta 3.0 Beta2 Nexenta is a project developing a debian user-land for the OpenSolaris kernel. This provides all of the advantages of apt as a package respoitory (based on the Ubuntu LTS apt repository, currently using 8.04) as well as the advantages of the ZFS filesystem. In the resulting setup every user can have his/her own home directory accessible via the SMB protocol or NFS with read-/write access.

  • [Debian-Sarge] Tunneling NFS over SSH

    Author: harmTags: , , Comments: 10

    [Debian-Sarge] Tunneling NFS over SSHThe goal of this howto is building a NFS server that works on a SSH tunnel. This way all traffic between your hosts and the file server is encrypted and thus more secure. Normally you should enter a password every time you try to establish a SSH connection but since we could be mounting at bootup we will use ssh-keygen to create a keypair so we can login without entering a password. We will, however, limit that login session to executing just one command.

  • Setting Up A Highly Available NFS Server

    Author: Falko TimmeTags: , , , Comments: 1

    Setting Up A Highly Available NFS Server In this tutorial I will describe how to set up a highly available NFS server that can be used as storage solution for other high-availability services like, for example, a cluster of web servers that are being loadbalanced. If you have a web server cluster with two or more nodes that serve the same web site(s), than these nodes must access the same pool of data so that every node serves the same data, no matter if the loadbalancer directs the user to node 1 or node n. This can be achieved with an NFS share on an NFS server that all web server nodes (the NFS clients) can access.
