Installing Drupal 6.4 On A Lighttpd Web Server (Debian Etch)

Post date: September 14, 2008, 15:09 Category: Installing Views: 3783 Comments
Tutorial quote: This guide explains how you can install Drupal 6.4 on a lighttpd web server on Debian Etch. Drupal comes with an .htaccess file with mod_rewrite rules (for Apache) that do not work on lighttpd. Without this .htaccess file it is not possible to have clean URLs in your Drupal installation. Fortunately there is a way to make lighttpd behave as if it could read the .htaccess file.

Using a jail as a virtual machine

Post date: April 12, 2005, 18:04 Category: System Views: 4495 Comments
Tutorial quote: This article shows you how I created a jail for the OSW website. It runs in a jail on the same system as this website. I originally did this install back in November 2003 and the notes from that session form the basis of this article. I have need to recreate the jail now as we recently had an HDD failure.

A jail is useful for many purposes. In my case, I wanted to give the OSW project a place to run their websites, mailing lists, etc, but at the same time keep them isolated from the rest of the machine. In short, it gives them a virtual machine, and it gives me peace of mind knowing that I have less to worry about with respect to the rest of the machine.

Virtual Users & Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL, SquirrelMail (Fedora 10)

Post date: February 1, 2009, 11:02 Category: Installing Views: 4732 Comments
Tutorial quote: This document describes how to install a Postfix mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota (quota is not built into Postfix by default, I'll show how to patch your Postfix appropriately). Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database (most documents I found were dealing with plain text passwords which is a security risk). In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses. I will also show how to install SquirrelMail as a webmail interface so that users can read and send emails and change their passwords.

Chrooted SFTP With MySecureShell On Debian Etch

Post date: September 19, 2007, 22:09 Category: Security Views: 5148 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial shows how to install MySecureShell on a Debian Etch system. MySecureShell is an SFTP server that is based on OpenSSH and can be configured in many ways, e.g. it has support for chrooting users into their homedirs or for limiting upload-/download bandwidths. MySecureShell makes SFTP available for users that do not have shell access so that these users do not have to use the insecure FTP protocol anymore.

Mounting Remote Directories With SSHFS On Debian Squeeze

Post date: September 22, 2011, 10:09 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 5602 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial explains how you can mount a directory from a remote server on the local server securely using SSHFS. SSHFS (Secure SHell FileSystem) is a filesystem that serves files/directories securely over SSH, and local users can use them just as if the were local files/directories. On the local computer, the remote share is mounted via FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace). I will use Debian Squeeze for both the local and the remote server.

Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Debian Etch

Post date: May 13, 2007, 21:05 Category: System Views: 4665 Comments
Tutorial quote: 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.
