Managing A Headless VirtualBox Installation With phpvirtualbox On nginx (Ubuntu 12.04)

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 with nginx on an Ubuntu 12.04 server to manage a locally installed, headless VirtualBox.

Creating Advanced MySQL-Based Virtual Hosts On Lighttpd (Debian Squeeze)

This guide explains how you can create advanced virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Debian Squeeze that are stored in a MySQL database. The method described here does not use the lighttpd mod_mysql_vhost module, and unlike mod_mysql_vhost (which allows you to store only the hostname and document root of a vhost in a database), this method allows to store individual configuration directives for each vhost in the MySQL database.

Creating Simple Virtual Hosts With mod_mysql_vhost On Lighttpd (Debian Squeeze)

This guide explains how you can use mod_mysql_vhost to create simple virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Debian Squeeze. With mod_mysql_vhost, lighttpd can read the vhost configuration from a MySQL database. Currently, you can store the domain and the document root in the MySQL database which results in very simple virtual hosts. If you need more directives for your vhosts, you'd have to configure them in the global section of lighttpd.conf, which means they'd be valid for all vhosts. Therefore, mod_mysql_vhost is ideal if your vhosts differ only in the domain and document root.

The Debian community is pleased to celebrate its 19th birthday since Ian Murdock's original founding announcement [1]. Quoting from the official project history [2]: "The Debian Project was officially founded by Ian Murdock on August 16th, 1993. At that time, the whole concept of a 'distribution' of Linux was new. Ian intended Debian to be a distribution which would be made openly, in the spirit of Linux and GNU."

A lot has happened to the project and its community in the past nineteen years. There have been eleven releases - most recently Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" [3] in February 2011 - and a huge amount of free software packaged. The current "unstable" branch consists of more than 37,000 binary packages for the amd64 architecture alone - over 46 GB of Free/Libre Software! Since last year's birthday new steps to portability have been made; 11 official ports [4] are now available, amongst which Debian/kFreeBSD deserves a special mention for successfully integrating a non-Linux kernel within the project.
