Postfix Virtual Hosting With LDAP Backend & Dovecot (IMAP/POP3) On Ubuntu 8.04

Post date: August 3, 2008, 10:08 Category: Installing Views: 4178 Comments
Tutorial quote: I have been running with a MySQL backend for virtual hosting for some time, but when I discovered Phamm and the added FTP feature I decided to switch to LDAP as backend for Postfix with virtual hosting. In view of the fact that the installation and configuration guide of Phamm is lacking some basic information it took me quite some time to put it all together and get it working. Piecing it all together was not simple so I would like to share how I configured it and got it all working toghether.

How To Set Up A Loadbalanced High-Availability Apache Cluster On Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

Post date: June 12, 2008, 11:06 Category: Installing Views: 3900 Comments
Tutorial quote: This tutorial shows how to set up a two-node Apache web server cluster that provides high-availability. In front of the Apache cluster we create a load balancer that splits up incoming requests between the two Apache nodes. Because we do not want the load balancer to become another "Single Point Of Failure", we must provide high-availability for the load balancer, too. Therefore our load balancer will in fact consist out of two load balancer nodes that monitor each other using heartbeat, and if one load balancer fails, the other takes over silently.
