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.

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Ubuntu 12.10 and how to configure it to share files over the SMB protocol as well as how to add users. Samba is configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In the resulting setup, every user has his own home directory accessible via the SMB protocol and all users have a shared directory with read-/write access.

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 12.10)

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 and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses.

Running Question2Answer On Nginx (LEMP) On Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 12.10

falko's picture

This tutorial shows how you can install and run a Question2Answer web site on a Debian Squeeze or Ubuntu 12.10 system that has nginx installed instead of Apache (LEMP = Linux + nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). nginx is a HTTP server that uses much less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot of faster, especially static files. Question2Answer is a free and open source platform for Q&A sites.
