APC Cache Considerations for Virtual Hosting Environments

APC cache does not work well in a virtual hosting environment unless PHP is running as FCGID, and every individual virtual host has a unique PHP.ini and a unique fcgiwrapper. This is not the case with many virtual hosting environments because the memory and CPU requirements are too great. I suggest using Virtualmin for a shared hosting environment with APC cache, because it does allow to set php.ini and fcgiwrapper for every individual virtual h… 1, 0, 1, 0 and 90.99

Fail2Ban Regex for RedHat, Fedora, CentOS and Amazon Linux 2013

Fail2Ban is a very efficient daemon that scans log files for malicious activity, and offers several options to ban offending IPs and hostnames. Although it is highly configurable, it requires a depth of knowledge beyond that required for GUI-accessible firewalls such as ConfigServer Security & Firewall. Harden the Kernel Before do anything further, it is necessary to harden the server at the kernel level. Doing so will prevent the majority o… 1, 0, 0, 0 and 52

Punk Rock Music Community

Punktastic.com is a community powered site that covers punk music in Britain, but is poised to go worldwide. They cover punk and hardcore shows and festivals, and provide album reviews, video interviews and more.

While this is a relatively low-end box, it has plenty of horse… 1, 0, 0, 0 and 52

SSL and CloudFront CDN Support for WebFonts via .htaccess

I recently upgraded my WordPress theme to WooThemes Canvas 5.x, and I found that some of the icons were not rendering, but were showing a letter or integer instead. I dug into the code and found that these icons are now delivered via @font-face webfonts. Meanwhile, I’m working on a client’s e-commerce site with Google WebFonts and a custom webfont to display the Rupee symbol (Indian currency). Though the fonts were uploading properly… 1, 0, 0, 0 and 52
