Installing And Using OpenVZ On Ubuntu 13.04 (AMD64)

falko's picture

In this HowTo I will describe how to prepare an Ubuntu 13.04 server for OpenVZ. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual Private Servers (VPS) on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the Linux Vserver project. OpenVZ is the open-source branch of Virtuozzo, a commercial virtualization solution used by many providers that offer virtual servers. The OpenVZ kernel patch is licensed under the GPL license, and the user-level tools are under the QPL license.

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

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.
