Setting the Clock on Linux

Post date: April 12, 2005, 17:04 Category: System Views: 2256 Comments
Tutorial quote: There are 3 protocols dealing with time: NTP (port 123), Time (port 37), and Daytime (port 13). If you're connecting to the Internet periodically, then synchronizing your clock when you dial up or from crontab is good enough. This applies also to most Linux machines at home or at work, even if they are connected all the time. Here is a short tutorial on how to set your clock using these 3 protocols.

Setting up a local web server in Debian Linux

Post date: January 21, 2006, 06:01 Category: Network Views: 2659 Comments
Tutorial quote: Any web developer, designer, or webmaster can benefit from having a local web server. Even if that developer has no interest in securing and maintaining the server his or her websites live on, a local server can act as a convenient mirror for testing updates, trying new designs, and other general sand-boxing activities.

Web developers whose hosts utilize the popular LAMP platform (Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP) are frequently hit with a dilemma. Since understanding Linux is not a prerequisite for website administrators, many of them lack the knowledge necessary for setting up a LAMP server from scratch (or at least they may think so). But thanks to the improved package management on Linux distributions like Debian, installing a functional web server is not nearly the chore it was just a couple years ago.

Tutorial quote: Gnome Shell consists of two big parts: the panel and overlay. The panel part is pretty much obvious - system tray, user name, and clock stuff and the activities button which activates the overlay -, and about the "overlay", well, take a look at this screenshot:


Basically, it allows the user to concentrate on switching to a new activity by opening new applications, documents, or both. It displays all the current user workspaces and open windows and facilitates organizing them.

So far, the Gnome Shell installation was quite time-consuming, so most people didn't try it until now. With time, however, this has changed, and you can install it by running a script. Here is how:
