This guide explains how to set up WebDAV with MySQL authentication (using mod_auth_mysql) on Apache2 on an Ubuntu 9.10 server. WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning and is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that allow users to directly edit files on the Apache server so that they do not need to be downloaded/uploaded via FTP. Of course, WebDAV can also be used to upload and download files. read more...

Using mod_spdy with Apache2 on CentOS 6.3

Up
vote
Down

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 CentOS 6.3. read more...

This article explains how you can set up an SSL vhost under Apache2 on Ubuntu 9.10 and Debian Lenny so that you can access the vhost over HTTPS (port 443). SSL is short for Secure Sockets Layer and is a cryptographic protocol that provides security for communications over networks by encrypting segments of network connections at the transport layer end-to-end. We use the mod_ssl Apache module here to provide strong cryptography for Apache2 via SSL by the help of the Open Source SSL toolkit OpenSSL. read more...

Setting Users and Groups per Virtual Host in Apache

Up
vote
Down

Take full advantage of multiple domains on a single system using Apache.
One of the biggest problems with administering a major server housing multiple sites is restricting access to the sites to only those people responsible for maintaining a specific site. The reason for this is that all of the Apache child processes run with the same user and group Id. Therefore, all of the files need to be readable, writable, and executable by the user and group that the server is running as. This becomes a much bigger issue when you add CGI and PHP scripts to the site. If those scripts must access private information, then that information must be stored with relatively insecure user and group Ids.

Tutorial: Nginx Apache front-end (CentOS 5)

Up
vote
Down

Nginx (pronounced "engine X") is a lightweight, high-performance Web server/reverse proxy and e-mail (IMAP/POP3) proxy, licensed under a BSD-like license. It runs on UNIX, GNU/Linux, BSD variants, Mac OS X, Solaris, and Microsoft Windows. Apache's performance is generally very good as well. However, in a resource-constrained environment , Apache does not necessarily provide optimal performance or resource utilization. One of the "best practice" approaches to reducing the strain on Apache is to let a leaner lighter web server take over the serving of the site's static files (images, javascript, css, etc.), leaving the heavy lifting of serving the dynamic content to Apache. This tutorial shows how you can set up Nginx as front end to Apache for ISPConfig 2 On CentOS 5.x. read more...

Tutorial: Set up a two-node Apache cluster on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

Up
vote
Down

This tutorial shows how to set up a two-node Apache web server cluster that provides high-availability. In front of the Apache cluster we create a load balancer that splits up incoming requests between the two Apache nodes. Because we do not want the load balancer to become another "Single Point Of Failure", we must provide high-availability for the load balancer, too. Therefore our load balancer will in fact consist out of two load balancer nodes that monitor each other using heartbeat, and if one load balancer fails, the other takes over silently. read more...

Apache Derby Tutorial

Down

Perhaps the right database to use for a Java application...
Apache Derby - which is the name we'll stick with throughout the rest of this article - used to belong to Informix, who had bought a company called Cloudscape who had developed a SQL-compliant Java relational database. Informix was in turn swallowed up by IBM, who eventually open sourced Cloudscape by contributing the code to Apache Software Foundation. Cloudscape became Apache Derby, though when Sun Microsystems decided to add it to the Java 6.0 SDK, they christened it the Java DB.

Run Vhosts under user accounts with Apache2 mpm-peruser

Up
vote
Down

This article explains how you can install and configure apache2-mpm-peruser on a Debian Etch server. apache2-mpm-peruser is an MPM (Multi-Processing Module) for the Apache 2 web server, very similar to apache2-mpm-itk, but faster (almost as fast as apache2-mpm-prefork). mpm-peruser allows you to run each of your vhosts under a separate UID and GID - in short, the scripts and configuration files for one vhost no longer have to be readable for all the other vhosts. It is based on metuxmpm, a working implementation of the perchild MPM. The result is a sane and secure web server environment for your users, without kludges like PHP's safe_mode. read more...
