Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On Debian Wheezy

falko's picture

Lighttpd is a secure, fast, standards-compliant web server designed for speed-critical environments. This tutorial shows how you can install Lighttpd on a Debian Wheezy server with PHP5 support (through PHP-FPM) and MySQL support. PHP-FPM (FastCGI Process Manager) is an alternative PHP FastCGI implementation with some additional features useful for sites of any size, especially busier sites. I use PHP-FPM in this tutorial instead of Lighttpd's spawn-fcgi.

Removing Signatures From Various Packages

falko's picture

This tutorial shows you how to remove the Debian signature/version info from packages such as Apache, Postfix or SSH. There are various reasons to remove the signature (and therefore hide that you are using Debian/a specific version). The most important one is about security. When a hacker knows the distro you are using, he can search for well-known security issues and start an attack against them. If he doesn't know the distro in use, chances to not find any security holes are much larger.

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Debian Wheezy)

falko's picture

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, 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. Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database. In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and SquirrelMail.

Virtualization With VirtualBox 4.2 and phpvirtualbox On A Headless Ubuntu 12.04 Server

falko's picture

phpvirtualbox is a web-based VirtualBox front-end written in PHP that allows you to access and control remote VirtualBox instances. It tries to resemble the VirtualBox GUI as much as possible to make work with it as easy as possible. It is a nice replacement for the VirtualBox GUI if you run VirtualBox in headless servers. This tutorial explains how to install phpvirtualbox on an Ubuntu 12.04 server to manage a locally installed, headless VirtualBox (version 4.2).
