Tutorial quote: Yum is an automatic updater and package management tool for rpm based systems. Yum automatically computes dependencies and figures out what steps need to occur in order to install packages. It makes it much easier to maintain groups of machines without having to manually update each one using rpm.

How To Save Traffic With mod_deflate On Lighttpd 1.4 (Debian Etch)

Post date: August 15, 2007, 22:08 Category: Installing Views: 2776 Comments
Tutorial quote: In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure mod_deflate on a lighttpd 1.4 web server on Debian Etch. mod_deflate is included by default in lighttpd 1.5, but not in 1.4 where mod_compress is used instead. The advantage of mod_deflate over mod_compress is that it can compress static and dynamic files (such as PHP files), whereas mod_compress can compress static files only. The lighttpd version coming with Debian Etch is 1.4.13, so we have to patch it to support mod_deflate. mod_deflate allows lighttpd to compress files and deliver them to clients (e.g. browsers) that can handle compressed content which most modern browsers do. With mod_deflate, you can compress HTML, text or XML files to approx. 20 - 30% of their original sizes, thus saving you server traffic and making your modem users happier.

Removing Unwanted Startup Debian Files or Services

Post date: January 5, 2007, 07:01 Category: System Views: 3454 Comments
Tutorial quote: Under Debian Linux ( and most other distros) startup files are stored in /etc/init.d/ directory and symbolic linked between /etc/rcX.d/ directory exists. Debian Linux (Red Hat/ Fedora) uses System V initialization scripts to start services at boot time from /etc/rcX.d/ directory. Debian Linux comes with different utilities to remove unwanted startup files.

An apt-get primer

Post date: April 12, 2005, 17:04 Category: System Views: 2683 Comments
Tutorial quote: If any single program defines the Debian Linux project, that program is apt-get. apt-get is Debian's main tool for installing and removing software. Working with the .deb package format, apt-get offers sophisticated package management that few Red Hat Package Manager RPM-based distributions can match.

Besides the convenience, an advantage of apt-get is that it reduces the chances of falling into dependency hell, that limbo where software installation fails for lack of another piece of software, whose installation fails for lack of another piece of software, and so on. If you know how Debian's archive system works, and how to choose the sources that apt-get uses, and use a few precautions in your upgrades, then the chances are that dependency problems will never bedevil you. Should you descend into dependency hell anyway, apt-get offers useful tools for climbing out of it.

Make Browsers Cache Static Files With mod_expires On Apache2 (Debian Squeeze)

Post date: March 10, 2011, 11:03 Category: Installing Views: 2678 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial explains how you can configure Apache2 to set the Expires HTTP header and the max-age directive of the Cache-Control HTTP header of static files (such as images, CSS and Javascript files) to a date in the future so that these files will be cached by your visitors' browsers. This saves bandwidth and makes your web site appear faster (if a user visits your site for a second time, static files will be fetched from the browser cache). This tutorial was written for Debian Squeeze.

Running Drupal 7.7 On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 11.04

Post date: September 8, 2011, 08:09 Category: Installing Views: 3812 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial shows how you can install and run a Drupal 7.7 web site on Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 11.04 with nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). In addition to that I will also show you how you can use the Drupal Boost plugin with nginx. nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files.

The Perfect Setup - SUSE 9.2 (server)

Post date: April 12, 2005, 16:04 Category: Installing Views: 4171 Comments

In addition to that I will show how to use Debian's package manager apt on an rpm-based system because it takes care of package dependencies automagically which can save a lot of trouble.
