How I automated my backups to Amazon S3 using s3sync

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxHow I automated my backups to Amazon S3 using s3sync from John Eberly's Geek Blog is a nice article on setting up backups to Amazon's S3 service (pay as you go): "The following steps describe how I backup my “public drive” to Amazon’s awesome S3 storage service. I decided to post this, because I haven’t found a fairly “simple” guide to actually automate backups to S3 that functions similar to rsync on Linux."

The Perfect Setup

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxThe Perfect Setup is a detailed description about how to set up a Mandriva 2007 Free Edition based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters (web server (SSL-capable), mail server (with SMTP-AUTH and TLS!), DNS server, FTP server, MySQL server, POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.). In the end you should have a system that works reliably and is ready for the free webhosting control panel ISPConfig (i.e., ISPConfig runs on it out of the box).

Going Live With Apodio And Dynebolic

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxFrom LJ: Going Live With Apodio And Dynebolic introduces two audio-optimized Linux distributions, Apodio and Dynebolic. Both systems can be run in "live" mode, i.e. you put the distribution disc in your CD drive, you reboot, and voila, you're booted into the system. Basically the live mode runs itself from a RAM disk and the distribution CD. The process is transparent, except for the occasional disc reads. The systems can be installed to a hard drive.

quick tip: using Super Grub Disk to boot your Linux installation

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxIf you can't boot your Linux installation for some reason (for example because the boot loader in your MBR doesn't understand extended and logical partitions, and you installed Linux into a logical partition), you should have a look at Super Grub Disk.
