Step By Step Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus) LAMP Server Setup
Tuesday, May 17, 2016 @ 10:22:51 UTC by lbadmin (6494 reads)
Ubuntu Linuxgg234 writes
In around 15 minutes, the time it takes to install Ubuntu Server Edition, you can have a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) server up and ready to go. This feature, exclusive to Ubuntu Server Edition, is available at the time of installation.The LAMP option means you don?t have to install and integrate each of the four separate LAMP components, a process which can take hours and requires someone who is skilled in the installation and configuration of the individual applications. Instead, you get increased security, reduced time-to-install, and reduced risk of misconfiguration, all of which results in a lower cost of ownership.Currently this installation provide PostgreSQL database, Mail Server, Open SSH Server,Samba File Server, Print Server, Tomcat Java Server,Virtual Machine Host,Manual Package selection,LAMP and DNS options for pre-configured installations, easing the deployment of common server configurations.

How to configure NFS Server and Client Configuration on Ubuntu 15.04
Wednesday, January 27, 2016 @ 10:23:33 UTC by lbadmin (10654 reads)
Ubuntu Linuxgg234 writes
NFS was developed at a time when we weren't able to share our drives like we are able to today -- in the Windows environment. It offers the ability to share the hard disk space of a big server with many smaller clients. Again, this is a client/server environment. While this seems like a standard service to offer, it was not always like this. In the past, clients and servers were unable to share their disk space.Thin clients have no hard drives and thus need a "virtual" hard-disk. The NFS mount their hard disk from the server and, while the user thinks they are saving their documents to their local (thin client) disk, they are in fact saving them to the server. In a thin client environment, the root, user and home partitions are all offered to the client from the server via NFS. Full Story

How to Get Available Filesystem Space on Linux: a C Function with a C++ Example
Monday, August 31, 2015 @ 10:35:38 UTC by lbadmin (15348 reads)
Softwareericzma writes
How to Get Available Filesystem Space on Linux: a C Function with a C++ Example: It is common for programs to write to files in filesystems on disks. However, what if the disk was almost full when your program writes to the filesystem on a disk? For systems software and mission critical programs, it is a better or must-to-do practice to check the available filesystem space before actually writing to files. On POSIX OSes, we have the statvfs POSIX API to get filesystem statistics (On Linux, you may use the Linux specific statfs, but POSIX APIs are better for portability). In this post, we will introduce a C function and a C++ example to use the statvfs API to get the available filesystem space.

Controlling Filesystem Mounting on Linux by Playing with /etc/fstab
Thursday, March 26, 2015 @ 08:39:37 UTC by lbadmin (18145 reads)
Linuxericzma writes
Controlling Filesystem Mounting on Linux by Playing with /etc/fstab: Controlling the mounting of filesystems is a useful technique for managing Linux systems. The mounting configurations are mostly in the /etc/fstab file. In this post, we will discuss 2 common and useful techniques for controlling the filesystem mounting by playing with the /etc/fstab file: allowing non-root users to mount/unmount filesystems and avoiding mounting failures blocking the booting of Linux. Continue reading: Controlling Filesystem Mounting on Linux by Playing with /etc/fstab at SysTutorials.

What Is the Name of the Linux-based OS: A Survey ? Fclose.com: You may already well know ?Linux? and may also use the ?operating system based on the Linux kernel? directly or indirectly (you are indirectly using it now as Fclose.com is hosted on Linux). But how should we name the OS based on Linux? You may know there is GNU/Linux naming controversy. Different people have different opinions about this. Today, let?s see how do these widely used distributions call themselves by looking at their ?about? web pages. Continue reading: What Is the Name of the Linux-based OS: A Survey ?

A PHP Function for Fetching RSS Feed and Outputing Feed Items as HTML ? Fclose.com: I aggregated all my new posts from several sites into a single RSS feed. Last time I updated my homepage, I came across an idea why not showing these feed items directly on the homepage as HTML content. After some study, I got one single PHP function in my hand that fetches an RSS feed and outputs HTML content in the page.
