  • SubGit :: Svn To Git Migration – What is SubGit SubGit is tool for a smooth, stress-free Svn to Git migration. Create writable Git mirror of a local or remote Subversion repository and use both Subversion and Git as long as you like. Version 2.0 of SubGit introduces support for a remote Subversion repositories, so that to build a Git mirror, no shell access to Subversion repository is required (see complete release notes for a new version). [...] You may use SubGit for evaluation purposes without a registration as long as you like. During that evaluation period SubGit will remind you on a necessity of registration with the help of post commit and post receive messages.
  • Apache Tips & Tricks: Deny access to some folders – MDLog:/sysadmin – Applies: apache 1.3.x / apache 2.0.x Required apache module: mod_access Scope: global server configuration, virtual host, directory, .htaccess Type: security Description: How to deny access to certain folders and the files inside them. Useful: to deny access to certain folders containing private information (log files, source code, password files, etc.). The example shown here will address the question posted by Saul Howard on how to deny access to all the subversion directories (.svn).
  • Polipo — a caching web proxy – Wikipedia: Polipo is a lightweight forwarding and caching web proxy server. Polipo is HTTP 1.1-compliant, supports IPv4, IPv6, traffic filtering and privacy-enhancement. To minimize latency, Polipo both pipelines multiple resource requests and multiplexes multiple transactions onto the same TCP/IP connection.[1] Polipo is free software[2] released under the MIT License.[3] It runs on GNU/Linux, OpenWrt, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and FreeBSD. Polipo can be configured to use on-disk cache and serve cached content when offline and perform various forms of content filtering[...] E può usare upstream proxy socks… per chi se ne intende ;)

  • Epoptes – Epoptes (Επόπτης  - a Greek word for overseer) is an open source computer lab management and monitoring tool. It allows for screen broadcasting and monitoring, remote command execution, message sending, imposing restrictions like screen locking or sound muting the clients and much more! It can be installed in Ubuntu, Debian and openSUSE based labs that may contain any combination of the following: LTSP servers, thin and fat clients, non LTSP servers, standalone workstations, NX or XDMCP clients etc. Patches for other distros are welcome.
  • bcache – Bcache is a Linux kernel block layer cache. It allows one or more fast disk drives such as flash-based solid state drives (SSDs) to act as a cache for one or more slower hard disk drives. Hard drives are cheap and big, SSDs are fast but small and expensive. Wouldn't it be nice if you could transparently get the advantages of both? With Bcache, you can have your cake and eat it too. Bcache patches for the Linux kernel allow one to use SSDs to cache other block devices. It's analogous to L2Arc for ZFS, but Bcache also does writeback caching (besides just write through caching), and it's filesystem agnostic. It's designed to be switched on with a minimum of effort, and to work well without configuration on any setup. By default it won't cache sequential IO, just the random reads and writes that SSDs excel at. It's meant to be suitable for desktops, servers, high end storage arrays, and perhaps even embedded.

  • Howto: Change the IP address of a Dell 4/P DRAC from the command line without rebooting the server – Normally you configure a Dell Remote Access Card (DRAC) when a server is initially commissioned. Once the card is set, administrators rarely if ever need to modify the settings. If you do need to change the settings, the server needs to be restarted so the DRAC BIOS can be modified, which obviously results in system downtime and requires a physical presence at the server console.
  • bash ini parser | /var/log/ajdiaz – In some situations i like to use INI files as configuration files, as python do. But bash do not provide a parser for these files, obviously you can use a awk code or a couple of sed calls, but if you are bash-priest and do not want to use nothing more, then you can try the following obscure code:
  • Jugg Monkey: VMWare HA Agent had an error – I recently had a problem with one hoste in a 3 node VMWare ESX 3. 5 cluster. For some reason, the HA Agent would not start after I applied outstanding software updates. I kept receiving "VMWare HA Agent had an error" in the alerts after the host came online. I had recently needed to change the IP address of the VMWare 3.5 ESX host, so I figured that was the root cause.

  • andihofmeister/squidGuard · GitHub – squidGuard cleanup/rewrite

    The version here is a rewrite of most of the code. While it provides (almost) all features found in SG 1.5, the configuration is not entirely compatible.
    This repostiroy does NOT contain an official version of squidGuard (see below)

  • eAccelerator – eAccelerator is a free open-source PHP accelerator & optimizer. It increases the performance of PHP scripts by caching them in their compiled state, so that the overhead of compiling is almost completely eliminated. It also optimizes scripts to speed up their execution. eAccelerator typically reduces server load and increases the speed of your PHP code by 1-10 times.
  • Server World – Build Network Server – This site explains how to build home server connected to internet with static IP address. You need to get at least one static IP address from your ISP. Please make sure the terms of use from your ISP, and Get one or some IP addresses if possibles. It's possible to build a network server, not with static IP address but with dynamic IP address by using Dynamic DNS, though. But I don't recommend it because there are some limits. It's the best to get at least one static IP address in order to build a network server, there is no limit. To get one static IP address is not so high costs. It's easy to build network server at your home.
    This site explains how to configure a server with commands basically, not with Graphical User Interfaces.
