Blocking Facebook Web Trackers At The Firewall For Extra Privacy

If you've spent any time examining the network traffic to and from your web browser, you will notice the prolific number of trackers embedded in the pages. There are some add-ons to the web browsers that aid in privacy, but it is simple enough to block the rogue sites at the firewall.

Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 (PHP-FPM) And MySQL Support On Ubuntu 12.10

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 an Ubuntu 12.10 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.

Help us to release "Wheezy": participate to our BSP marathon

The Debian Project is pleased to announce that in the next few weeks Bug Squashing Parties ("BSPs" [1]) will take place in several countries. The main focus of a Bug Squashing Party is to triage and fix bugs, but it is also an opportunity for users less familiar with the BTS to make other contributions to the Debian project, such as translating package descriptions or improving the wiki. Debian developers will be present to help contributors understand how the project works and to help get fixes into Debian.

Below is a list of upcoming Bug Squashing Parties; don't forget to regularly check our events page [2] to find more.

Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On Ubuntu 12.10

falko's picture

SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY") is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google's alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression. To use SPDY, you need a web server and a browser (like Google Chrome and upcoming versions of Firefox) that both support SPDY. mod_spdy is an open-source Apache module that adds support for the SPDY protocol to the Apache HTTPD server. This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on Ubuntu 12.10.
