falko's picture

Sometimes you need to move a web site from one server to another.

This howto will show you the way to set up OpenVPN to authenticate users against the LinOTP authentication backend.

falko's picture

This tutorial shows how to prepare an Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) server (with Apache2, BIND, Dovecot) for the installation of ISPConfig 3, and how to install ISPConfig 3. ISPConfig 3 is a webhosting control panel that allows you to configure the following services through a web browser: Apache or nginx web server, Postfix mail server, Courier or Dovecot IMAP/POP3 server, MySQL, BIND or MyDNS nameserver, PureFTPd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and many more. This setup covers Apache (instead of nginx), BIND (instead of MyDNS), and Dovecot (instead of Courier).

When aptitude removes the kernel and you accidentally reboot

it's not necessary to panic.

Installing any small distro on a USB or CD will solve the problem, providing it is of comparable age to your current system.

Once you boot in the rescue distribution, mount --bind all the volatile and living data like /dev /proc and /sys (perhaps even some subdirs
from var, although i got away without this) to corresponding directories of the non-functioning system, then chroot /mnt/kernelessdistropath
and install the kernel, or any other fundamental building block of a Unix system which made it inaccessible.
