Building the Perfect Ubuntu 10.04 LAMP Server
This post will detail the series of steps that are required to set-up and configure a LAMP server using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. The server will have all of the normal features that everyone has come to expect.
Specifically, it will have the following features:
- Locales will be set properly.
- MySQL will be secured.
- MySQL Query Caching will be configured.
- Iptables will be configured (optional).
- Alternative PHP Cache (APC) will be installed and configured.
- Web directory permissions will be set.
- Virtual hosts will be created.
Resetting the MySQL Root Password
This post will describe the series of steps that are needed to reset the MySQL root password when either the root password is known or it is not known. In theory, the later should never happen. However…
“In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.”
Configure TLS and SSL in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Configuring TLS/SSL in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) is a breeze. This post will outline the series of steps that are required to SSL up and running. Additionally, it appears as though the long-standing limitation of requiring different IP’s or different ports when configuring SSL using Name-Based Virtual Hosts is no longer a limitation. This is certainly great news indeed.
