  • 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.

  • A TCP Proxy in Perl – good coders code, great reuse – Several weeks ago my friend Madars was in an airport in the Netherlands and he wanted to login into his server via ssh. It turned out that their public internet had only ports 80 and 443 open so he couldn't do that. He asked me if I could proxy either port 80 or 443 to his server. Surely, I had a solution. I modified the tcp proxy server that I had written for my Turn any Linux computer into SOCKS5 proxy in one command article and did:<br />
    sudo ./tcp-proxy2.pl 443 madars-server.com:22<br />

  • IPv6 Crash Course For Linux | Linux.com – […] You might be used to working with IPv4 on Linux, but like it or not IPv6 is on its way in. Roll up your sleeves, spit on your palms, and get ready to go to work because this is your crash course in actually using IPv6. It hardly hurts at all. Linux has supported it since the 2.1 kernel, so you shouldn't have to install anything. Make sure you have the ping6, ip, and ifconfig commands. […]
  • Another IPv6 Crash Course For Linux: Real IPv6 Addresses … – […] In the first IPv6 for Linux crash course, we covered some of the bare basics of IPv6 on Linux. Today we're going to learn how to use routable IPv6 addresses, some iptables rules to keep our experimentation from leaking out into the world, and about implementing DNS in IPv6 […]
