  • WP-Cli Tutorial – How to Use WP-Cli with Your WordPress Site – WP-Cli is a command line interface which allows the users to manage their WordPress web sites from the command prompt. Upgrades can be performed, backups can be generated, new posts can be published and most of the regular admin actions can be performed with a set of commands. In this tutorial we will explain how to use the WP command line interface in order to complete regular administrative tasks like upgrades, database backup creation, plugins and themes installations and removals, publishing and deleting posts, changing site's URL settings and getting help on chosen commands. Note that WP-Cli requires an SSH access.
  • WordShell – WordPress from the command-line | WordPress from the CLIWordShell – WordPress from the command-line – WordPress from the command-line (Linux, Mac, Windows, BSD, Solaris, etc.) Don't log in to the dashboard on 20 sites one after the other; just type one command. Automate everything and use many bonus tools (e.g. automated backups, maintaining custom patches and version control). This is the time-and-money saver that WP admins have been waiting for.

  • S3QL – nikratio – S3QL is a file system that stores all its data online using storage services like Google Storage, Amazon S3, or OpenStack. S3QL effectively provides a hard disk of dynamic, infinite capacity that can be accessed from any computer with internet access running Linux, FreeBSD or OS-X. S3QL is a standard conforming, full featured UNIX file system that is conceptually indistinguishable from any local file system. Furthermore, S3QL has additional features like compression, encryption, data de-duplication, immutable trees and snapshotting which make it especially suitable for online backup and archival. S3QL is designed to favor simplicity and elegance over performance and feature-creep. Care has been taken to make the source code as readable and serviceable as possible. Solid error detection and error handling have been included from the very first line, and S3QL comes with extensive automated test cases for all its components.
  • Using Foreman, an Opensource Frontend for Puppet - – The recent vulnerability in bash, got me running to update bash. It’s easy when you have maybe one or two Linux servers, but what do you do if you have 100’s or even thousands or servers? You need to use a server configuration and management tool like puppet. However, instead of using the command line, I wanted a GUI tool where I could select the servers or server group and select an action. That is where I found Foreman, A opensource tool which not only handles configuration of your servers but also does provisioning. Foreman is easy to install, opensource, has community based support and a good deal of documentation.
  • Power Up Your Authentication with Open LDAP and Puppet | DataCentred – When you’re busy automating your infrastructure, a recurring theme that causes questions and problems is this: how do you reliably integrate your data (which changes all the time) into your configuration? As a hosting company, we find ourselves needing to tend to an ever-increasing number of devices: servers, switches, routers, hypervisors, you name it. A staple mechanism for centralised authentication is the use of an LDAP server to manage a directory of users and groups and to perform authentication of credentials and privileges on behalf of other devices on the network.
  • Enterprise/Authentication/KerberosServices – Ubuntu Wiki – This article explains a little bit about the Kerberos protocol and how it can be used in Ubuntu. It's not a thorough manual, use more authoritative sources to get more accurate information and update if you see obvious mistakes.

  • microHOWTO: Configure Apache to use Kerberos authentication – To configure Apache to use Kerberos authentication Kerberos is an authentication protocol that supports the concept of Single Sign-On (SSO). Having authenticated once at the start of a session, users can access network services throughout a Kerberos realm without authenticating again. For this to work it is necessary to use network protocols that are Kerberos-aware. In the case of HTTP, support for Kerberos is usually provided using the SPNEGO authentication mechanism (Simple and Protected GSS-API Negotiation). This is also known as ‘integrated authentication’ or ‘negotiate authentication’. Apache does not itself support SPNEGO, but support can be added by means of the mod_auth_kerb authentication module.
  • How to create a bootable USB stick on OS X | Ubuntu – [...] Note: this procedure requires that you create an .img file from the .iso file you download. It will also change the filesystem that is on the USB stick to make it bootable, so backup all data before continuing [...]
  • thomastk/kunjumon – Kunjumon is a framework that can be used to create plugins for Nagios monitoring system, without writing any new code. The plugins thus created are robust, and, can monitor complex scenarios by querying data from multiple databases. While efforts to build such plugins would require considerable scripting work, using Kunjumon framework, a a plugin that pulls input data from databases can be implemented by defining it in XML format, and, there is no need to write any code to support it. The Kunjumon framework has been tested on all the Linux platforms, and against MySQL, Postgres, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server. However, in general, it would work with any ODBC interface configured on the Nagios host to access a data repository.
