Let’s explore SELinux modes, and learn a few commands that will help in understanding SELinux policies better.
Understanding the OpenVZ way of virtualisation and getting started with it.
In the Part 4 of “Building a Server from Scratch” series, we learn how to set up a Web and database server.
Introducing Awk, a language that has built-in features to recognise patterns and manipulate them with ease.
In the Part 3 of “Building a Server from Scratch” series, we learn to set up VirtualBox on the main server and deploy each service on a separate virtual machine.
Last month we discussed how to set up a highly available cluster of Web servers that are load balanced using nginx. One shortcoming in that set-up was the reverse-proxy server itself, which on crashing, will cause the entire Web server cluster to go down. Therefore, we would need to build high-availability in the reverse-proxy server itself.
Last month, we built a server using off-the-shelf hardware. This time, let’s set up some essential server services.
KVM, the Kernel Virtual Machine monitor, was announced in late 2006, and was merged in Linus’ tree in December the same year. It has very quickly gained wide acceptance and adoption for being the most promising and capable virtualisation strategy on Linux. Though a very young project, new features are being added at a very brisk pace thanks to the interest taken by several companies and developers across the globe.
Getting started with nginx, a powerful HTTP Web server/reverse proxy and IMAP/POP3 reverse proxy.
It’s always fun to try out different hacks under the GNU/Linux freedom platform. The pride of becoming a command-line wizard makes everyone stay close to the CLI. Moreover, the CLI vests you with the ultimate power to control your machine.
