  • Security Tips for Apache Web Server – Debian-based Systems – Apache is one of the most widely spread Open Source web server for web hosting in Internet due to its stability, robustness and rich variety of modules and features. Due to its popularity, Apache comes with pre-build binary packages for almost all major Linux distributions and can also be installed on other Operating Systems such as Unix, Windows, Mac OSX, BSD etc. However, a basic installation of Apache on Linux systems, by default, doesn’t offer a full protection against attackers, so a few security measures must be taken in order to protect your machines, web servers and web documents against such types of malicious attacks. This article will provide you a few tips on how you can secure and protect Apache Web Server installed on Debian-based Linux distributions.

So check first and then proceed accordingly.

  • sebsauvage/rss-bridge – The RSS feed for websites missing it
  • debsecan – The debsecan program evaluates the security status of a host running the Debian operation system. It reports missing security updates and known vulnerabilities in the programs which are installed on the host. debsecan accesses the dpkg database and obtains a list of installed packages and their versions. This list is then evaluated against a feed of vulnerability information which ultimately comes from a database maintained by Debian's Testing Security Team . Various output formats are supported, including incremental reporting via email. Beginning with version 0.2, debsecan includes a script called debsecan-create-cron, which allows you to create a cron job which periodically sends you mail (once per day) when the security status of the system changes.
  • Barriers, Caches, Filesystems | monolight – With the recent proliferation of ext4 as the new “default” Linux filesystem there’s been much talk of write barrier support. The flurry of post-2.6.18 barrier related development in most storage subsystems has left some novice users and administrators perplexed. I hope I can clear it up a bit with this primer/refresher.
  • SMTP, testing via Telnet – FreeBSDwiki – When troubleshooting problems with SMTP service – your own, or others – it is frequently very helpful to be able to "speak" to the SMTP server directly, rather than going through a mail client which won't necessarily tell you exactly what the SMTP server is saying. You can easily do this with the telnet client. Note that many ISPs do not allow outbound connections on port 25 to any SMTP server but their own – if you get timeouts when trying to connect to port 25, you should try port 587, which is the standard ESMTP port. (Port 587 connections normally require SMTP AUTH, which is covered below.)

  • Jugnu Life :-): How to install Tomcat in Linux (Ubuntu) – To install Tomcat we need Java to be installed in the system. If you want to know how to install Java on Linux you can refer this earlier post on the same. We can install Java either using packages (apt , yum) or manually. This post explains how to do it manually. The main advantage of doing it manually is that all the tomcat files are in one location. The automated installation will spread the setup files across various locations. It places the Tomcat configuration files at various non standard places.
