17.09.06 Configuring Apache for Maximum Performance
Vishnu Ram
Apache is an open-source HTTP server implementation. It is the most popular web server on the Internet. The December 2005 Web Server Survey conducted by Netcraft [1] shows that about 70% of the web sites on Internet are using Apache. 1. Apache server performance Apache server performance can be improved by adding additional hardware resources such as RAM, faster CPU etc..

21.02.06 Authenticating to a LDAP server
Marcel Alburg
Reasons for authenticating to an LDAP server. We assume that you would like to create a web server where a client can log in and then retrieve their e-mails via internet and/or send e-mails etc. (example: www.gmx.de, www.web.de or http://linuxali.dyndns.org:4141 ). Therefore the client has to become a user on the web server. That means they have to run the web server as root ( not recommended ) to be able to use the commands useradd and groupadd...more
4.08.05 Windows vs. Linux
Umer Mansoor
This article will not attempt to advocate the use of Linux over Windows or vice versa. I will try to present the differences and similarities between Linux and Windows in a fair manner. Both Linux and Windows (2000, NT, XP, Vista) are operating systems. Linux was inspired from Unix, while Windows was inspired from VMS. While no single company "owns" Linux, Windows is owned by Microsoft. Various distributions (often referred to as "distros") of L...more

13.04.05 Lycoris Linux
Sascha Kloss
Not only do the newest bugfixes from Microsoft there, but a Linux distribution also comes from Redmond. The differences to other distributions will be detailed here. Hopefully you will find this overview of Lycoris Linux helpful. Linux is for everyone is the Redmonders motto. This is reflected by a strongly simplified KDE 2.2.2 and a perfectly easy installation. Lycoris has packed all up to date applications for daily use onto just one CD which...more
13.04.05 Dialin Server (ISDN) under SuSE Linux 8.0
Roger Mayer
Setting up a dialin-server running SuSe 8.0 is not documentated anywhere yet. This documentation is intended for users that already have some knowledge of linux and don t think ISP, ppp, devices and authentication are some kind of disease. I think it s rather hard to bring this topic near to somebody without any prior knowledge of the above. 1. Before we start 2. dialin-access in addition to a internet-access using one ISDN-interface 2.1 Creati...more

11.04.05 Temperature control with Linux
Thomas Ratz
On hot days it is always good to know the temperature in the server room. Using the solution described in this article you can simply visit an Apache webserver and query the current temperature values. Of course the range of applications are much wider than only server rooms. A hobby-meteorologist can design an automated temperature control or a gardener can check his greenhouse. There are temperature control instruments which have integrated a ...more
