Setting up a Web Server (Nginx)

When I got a Funtoo container, the first thing I wanted to do with it, was host a website. I'm new at this, so I looked up numerous tutorials, but none of them were specific to Funtoo, so I thought I'd write my own, for future reference and for the benefit of other new Funtoo users. It's a pretty basic setup, but I welcome any suggestions as to how it can be expanded or improved. Here are all the steps that I have gone through in setting up my web server.   First, install nginx by typing:

The tail of VirtualBox and the rc

Well, I wanted to play with VirtualBox on Funtoo again. Setup metro to create a custom stage3, added my stuff I use. All went well, chrooted into the new install, did all the normal setup stuff.   Rebooted into the new install. all was fine in the world. Adjusted my VM's to use VirtualBox, and even finally got OS X to work right virtualised.   Then the bullshit. How the fuck do you autostart vm's on boot. Went down the google rabbit hole, all the info was based on other Distros or outdat

My day Job

Not sure how many people out there are like me, but here is a project I just about to complete for a client.   I'm not in the IT industry, I'm in construction, a master plumber by trade, but do a lot of building management system integrations, and a lot of really specialty projects, like custom fire pits with iPad controls, high end pools ( we're talking 100K gal completely automated, heat pump / solar water heater for potable water, large solar systems ( looking forward to trying out the Tesl

Mobile Detection on Tengine / Nginx

If you use a content management system for your site, it probably already deals with mobile systems. But, what if you have parts of your site that aren't in a CMS, or you do your site by hand?   Well, it would be nice to either redirect from www.example.com to m.example.com, or (my preference), to redirect to a subdirectory. I like the subdirectory approach because I can easily share content with the main site via symlinks (such as the content management system). Normally, this isn't a nice th

Adding SSL to Tengine / Nginx

OK, you've got your SSL certificate and you have tengine or nginx setup, but you need it secure. After all, you've heard of all the recent DH attacks, BEAST, CRIME, FREAK, Heartbleed and others, right? Is your system already secure? Test it! Check out The SSL Labs Test Site. I'm getting an A+ rating! The following assumes tengine, but nginx is exactly the same, just s/tengine/nginx/g;   Need a certificate? OK - I highly recommend StartSSL. It's FREE! These guys will step you through the proc

crazy garbage dreamed up while grilling at 5:30 am

id like a torrenty style cryptographically secure protocol that supports revision control, that users could host locally cached content they've viewed from recent websites botnet style with throttle control that is geo & route metric aware to make the internet much more efficient. users could provide disk quotas and quotas per site and the crypto part would be used to distribute database contents. wiki style permissions for admins to work on the site, then propagate back to the main server

Working towards my ideas

I'm a big fan of trying anything new, but the cardinal rule for me is this: Don't mess with the data. If you don't what to lose those irreplaceable pics of grandma, keep it on a separate drive.   This is my mantra. I love playing with my system, updating, tweaking, and exploring. But this can be dangerous to your data.   This is also the reason why I chosen to use zfs as my storage for all my data. I can get to it from just anywhere. If it's unix(-like), I can download the kernel modules

First day

Gentoo was my first linux try that made sense. The source code is there, the compiler is there. And everything makes sense. There are difficulties along the way, but because the system made sense, it is always a worthwhile goal to overcome these difficulties. Maybe, Gentoo is a more coherent system. And now, that Funtoo is here, i will definitely give it a try.

winter is coming

sorry drobbins, winters coming, and this -23 Celsius shit drives me crazy, i have alot of time to think about things.   my quest is to wake from recurring dreams, to the collective recurring dream people call reality.   ok personal philosophy... im a pantheist, meaning i see nature as god, and science as the quest to know god. i am a very small part of nature therefore i am small part of god. my parents are my creator, and they are of nature. im observing what's right in front of me.....
