  • TIP: Debug squid ACL matches – The FreeBSD Forums – For tricky squid ACL troubleshooting situations, it is helpful to be able to see which access control entries a request matches and does not match. This information can be discovered easily using squid's debugging facility.

  • Plan your Exchange 2007 Backups based on Server Roles – When Microsoft created Exchange Server 2007, one of the biggest changes that they made was the creation of server roles. The concept of roles existed in Exchange server 2003, it was very limited. In Exchange server 2007, there are five different roles which serve five very specific purposes.

    Because these roles are so different from one another, the tasks that an Exchange Server performs, and the code that is installed is entirely dictated by the role that the server is configured to perform. That being the case, it is necessary to completely reevaluate your backup strategy.

  • Oracle LSNRCTL – Listener Shutdown and Startup Procedures – Starting up and shutting down the oracle listener is a routine task for a database administrator. However a Linux system administrator or programmer may end-up doing some basic DBA operations on development database. It is critical for non-DBAs to understand the basic database admin activities.

    In this article, let us review how to start, stop, check status of an oracle listener using Oracle listener control utility LSNRCTL.

  • Optimizing WordPress with Nginx, Varnish, APC, W3 Total Cache, and Amazon S3 (With Benchmarks) | danielmiessler.com – So I’ve spent the last couple of weeks tweaking my web server stack. I like my site to pop, and I’ve finally achieved a configuration that I’m somewhat happy with.

    In sum, I’m running Varnish as a front-end to Nginx which is running WordPress loaded with the W3-Total-Cache plugin. The W3-Total-Cache plugin is configured to use both memcached as well as Amazon S3 as its CDN. All of this sits on Ubuntu Linux with Linode as my host.

  • A Varnish Primer | danielmiessler.com – Despite the title, this article has nothing to do with painting. Here I'm going to talk a bit about the Varnish Cache — a web application accelerator designed to dramatically improve how quickly your website loads. Varnish works by caching and serving as much content as possible as "static", including dynamic results, e.g. blog posts from a CMS like WordPress.
  • Varnish best practices « Kristian Lyngstol’s Blog – A while ago I wrote about common Varnish issues, and I think it’s time for an updated version. This time, I’ve decided to include a few somewhat uncommon issues that, if set, can be difficult to spot or track down. A sort of pitfall-avoidance, if you will. I’ll add a little summary with parameters and such at the end.
  • Cain Manor | Setup logging for Varnish – So far, we’ve got Var­nish installed and have a cor­rect default.vcl. Now let’s make sure AWStats/JAW­Stats can read them.
