Setting Up A High-Availability Load Balancer (With Failover and Session Support) With HAProxy/Heartbeat On Debian Etch

Post date: November 7, 2007, 11:11 Category: Network Views: 4435 Comments
Tutorial quote: This article explains how to set up a two-node load balancer in an active/passive configuration with HAProxy and heartbeat on Debian Etch. The load balancer sits between the user and two (or more) backend Apache web servers that hold the same content. Not only does the load balancer distribute the requests to the two backend Apache servers, it also checks the health of the backend servers. If one of them is down, all requests will automatically be redirected to the remaining backend server. In addition to that, the two load balancer nodes monitor each other using heartbeat, and if the master fails, the slave becomes the master, which means the users will not notice any disruption of the service. HAProxy is session-aware, which means you can use it with any web application that makes use of sessions (such as forums, shopping carts, etc.).

How To Enable Multiple HTTPS Sites For One IP On Debian Etch Using TLS Extensions

Post date: November 19, 2007, 11:11 Category: Software Views: 3597 Comments
Tutorial quote: This guide is Debian specific but could be ported to other distributions since the concept is the same. In order to use TLS Extensions we have to patch and recompile Apache2 and recompile OpenSSL with the enable-tlsext directive. Since TLS extensions are relatively new, some Internet browsers will not work so the Apache2 server will deliver just the default site as http 1.0 does on an http 1.1 server.

How to set up an encrypted filesystem in several easy steps

Post date: December 10, 2006, 08:12 Category: Security Views: 3318 Comments
Tutorial quote: There's been a lot of talk lately about encrypted partitions, and Debian is proud to offer a feature to easily create them in the etch installer since beta3. But what about existing systems? This guide walks you through setting up an encrypted partition using cryptsetup and LUKS.

Stack Smashing Protection for Debian

Post date: June 23, 2006, 22:06 Category: Security Views: 2820 Comments
Tutorial quote: Since we last covered the use of Stack Smashing Protection (SSP) the default compiler for Debian Sid has been upgraded to include it, with no need for custom patching. Read on for a brief demonstration of how it can be used to prevent attacks.

The default C compiler for Sid, which will be used in Etch too, is GCC v4.1. This releasecontains the SSP patch which previously needed to be applied manually (we demonstrated applying this patch for GCC v3.4 a long time ago).

Since the SSP patch is included in the compiler by default it is suddenly a lot easier to start working with it.

Creating A Fully Encrypted Para-Virtualised Xen Guest System Using Debian Lenny

Post date: May 3, 2009, 10:05 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3360 Comments
Tutorial quote: This document explains how to set up a fully encrypted para-virtualized XEN instance. In this howto, the host system is running Debian Etch, while the guest system to be installed will be using Debian Lenny. If you are concerned about your privacy, you might want to consider using hard disk encryption to protect your valuable private data from spying eyes. Usually, the easiest way would be to use your distribution's installer to set up a fully encrypted system; I think most recent Linux distributions support this. However, when you are using XEN to provide virtualization, there are situations where you might not want to encrypt your whole computer with all guest instances, but instead only encrypt one OS instance. This howto will deal with exactly this situation. It assumes that the XEN host system is already up and running.

Triggering Commands On File/Directory Changes With Incron

Post date: September 2, 2008, 09:09 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3440 Comments
Tutorial quote: This guide shows how you can install and use incron on a Debian Etch system. Incron is similar to cron, but instead of running commands based on time, it can trigger commands when file or directory events occur (e.g. a file modification, changes of permissions, etc.).

Filesystems (ext3, reiser, xfs, jfs) comparison on Debian Etch

Post date: April 23, 2006, 08:04 Category: Benchmarks Views: 5750 Comments
Tutorial quote: There are a lot of Linux filesystems comparisons available but most of them are anecdotal, based on artificial tasks or completed under older kernels. This benchmark essay is based on 11 real-world tasks appropriate for a file server with older generation hardware (Pentium II/III, EIDE hard-drive).

Virtual Hosting With Proftpd And MySQL (Incl. Quota) On Debian Etch

Post date: April 27, 2007, 23:04 Category: Installing Views: 2780 Comments
Tutorial quote: This document describes how to install a Proftpd server that uses virtual users from a MySQL database instead of real system users. This is much more performant and allows to have thousands of ftp users on a single machine. In addition to that I will show the use of quota with this setup.

Configure Multiple Network Profiles on Linux

Post date: April 13, 2005, 02:04 Category: Network Views: 2565 Comments
Tutorial quote: Mobile Linux users face some interesting (OK, vexing) challenges when they want to plug into different networks. Any Linux system will easily support all manner of networking profiles--dialup, ISDN, Ethernet, wireless--the tricky bit is configuration. Manually re-configuring a PC for every connection is low on most users' lists of "fun things to do." You can be an ace scripting guru and fiddle up something yourself, or you can find a nice ready-made utility to do the work for you. Unfortunately, I have not found a universal utility to do this. However, there are a lot of utilities specific to various distributions, and an assortment of other utilities.

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

Post date: May 29, 2007, 22:05 Category: System Views: 3782 Comments
Tutorial quote: mod_proxy_balancer is an Apache module that lets you create a loadbalancer. This loadbalancer retrieves requested pages from two or more backend webservers and delivers them to the user's computer. An important feature of mod_proxy_balancer is that it keeps track of sessions so that a single user always deals with the same backend webserver.
