This tutorial shows how to prepare a Debian 8 (Jessie) server (with nginx, BIND, Dovecot) for the installation of ISPConfig, and how to install ISPConfig 3.1. ISPConfig 3 is a web hosting control panel that allows you to configure the following services through a web browser: Apache or nginx web server, Postfix mail server, Courier or Dovecot IMAP/POP3 server, MySQL, BIND or MyDNS nameserver, PureFTPd, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and many more. This setup covers nginx (instead of Apache), BIND as DNS server, and Dovecot (instead of Courier).

The MariaDB Server original goals were to be a drop-in replacement. In fact this is how its described (“It is an enhanced, drop-in replacement for MySQL”). We all know that its becoming increasingly hard for that line to be used these days.
Anyhow in March 2016, Debian’s release team has made the decision that going forward, MariaDB Server is what people using …[Read more]
Some of the users might have already noticed following warning on Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus):
Signature by key 430BDF5C56E7C94E848EE60C1C4CBDCDCD2EFD2A uses
weak digest algorithm (SHA1)
.deb packages are signed with a key that
uses an algorithm now considered weak. Starting with
the next release, Debian and Ubuntu
packages are signed with a new key that uses the much
stronger SHA-512 algorithm. All future package release will also
contain the new algorithm.
You’ll need to do one of the …[Read more]
This tutorial describes the installation of a clustered web, email, database and DNS server to be used for redundancy, high availability and load balancing on Debian 8 with the ISPConfig 3 control panel. MySQL Master/Master replication will be used to replicate the MySQL client databases between the servers, Unison will be used to Sync the /var/www (websites) and the Mails will be synced with Dovecot.

In this blog post, we’ll discuss some of the basics regarding Docker MySQL replication. Docker has gained widespread popularity in recent years as a lightweight alternative to virtualization. It is ideal for building virtual development and testing environments. The solution is flexible and seamlessly integrates with popular CI tools.
This post walks through the setup of MySQL replication with Docker using Percona Server 5.6 images. To keep things simple we’ll configure a pair of instances and override only the most important variables for replication. You can add whatever other variables you want to override in the configuration files for each instance.
Note: the configuration described here is suitable for development or testing. We’ve also used the …[Read more]
In this article we will show you how to install GLPI with Apache, PHP and MySQL on a Debian 7 VPS. GLPI is an IT software management package developed in PHP. It offers many functionalities one of which is to build up a database with an inventory for your company (computer, monitors, software, printers…). GLPI has enhanced functions to make the daily life for the administrators easier, like a job-tracking-system with mail-notification and methods to build a database with basic information about your network-topology. Below are the functions of this application: Inventory of computers, peripherals, network printers and associated components […]
Hello dear readers and attendees,
This is the post that I will be/ will have been referencing during my presentation to the Seattle Central Community College’s Byte club on Thursday, December 10th at 1500-1630.
I will begin with a bit of an autobio and find out what kind of students we have in attendance. Please feel free to comment if you’d like to keep in touch before or after the presentation. I will discuss some of the bits and pieces of some industry standard platforms which I’ve developed, deployed, maintained, managed, co-operated, administered and replaced. We can discuss some of the patterns that work well in the industry, and some that are a bit harder to tame.
Once we have touched most of the areas of specialization represented at the meeting, I will dive in to an AngularJS demo I am developing in github here:
I personally have always enjoyed the Ubuntu Developer Summits (UDS), but nowadays they have been converted to the Ubuntu Online Summits (UOS). Attending them is not always convenient (timezone issues, might be travelling, etc.) so I watched the recorded video of a session I was interested in: MySQL & Variants in 16.04.
My key takeaways
- Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus is an LTS release.
- The term “cross-grade” is used a lot (it is not about downgrading/upgrading, but being able to use MySQL or MariaDB or Percona Server interchangeably)
- It would be nice to see MySQL 5.7 in this release (for Xenial as well as Debian Stretch). From Oracle there is a new packager taking over the task (Lars)
- MySQL 5.5 is still the default in Debian, and there needs to be upgrades tested between 5.5 to 5.7 (it …
This tutorial describes a replicated MySQL setup (Mater/Master replication) with 2 nodes where data can be read and written to both nodes at the same time. MySQL takes care to replicate the data to the other node and ensures that primary auto increment keys don't collide.
