Headless VirtualBox Installation With phpvirtualbox

Phpvirtualbox is a web-based VirtualBox front-end written in PHP that allows you to access and control remote VirtualBox instances.It is a nice replacement for the VirtualBox GUI if you run VirtualBox on headless servers.I do not issue any guarantee that this will work.

1 Preliminary Note

Headless VirtualBox is already installed on the local OpenSUSE 12.1 server
running all the steps in this notes are with root privileges so lo gin as root

2 Installing phpvirtualbox

Create system user as vbox  and add to vboxusers

useradd -m vbox -G vboxusers

password for the vbox user

passwd vbox

Create the file /etc/default/virtualbox and put the line VBOXWEB_USER=vbox in it (so that the VirtualBox SOAP API which is called vboxwebsrv runs as the user vbox)

Purpose of Always Use Nginx With Microcaching

How hard is to push out as much as possible from your webserver(s).In daily work as a hosting engineer that means I fairly often get the same question, “Wow, cool website, but can it cope with big-time traffic?

The “normal” situation

A “normal” website running under Apache with mod_php should be able to put out 20 requests per second with ease like 50 requests per second the solution is to drop Apache, because as it is right now Apache just isn’t cutting it anymore


Set up your website on Nginx and you run a quick loadtest you don’t get much more than Apache It’s real simple, it’s due to the fact that Nginx doesn’t have a php module built and  need a speciel fastcgi processor to process the php pages. we can use php-fpm as it is better than spawn-cgi for better performance Use microcaching

What is Microcaching?

Microcaching means  user requests the page it caches it so the next request for any other will come from cache, and with 100 users requesting within 5 seconds only 1 in 20 users will have to build up the full page

Install MyUnity On Linux Mint 13

you can install MyUnity, the extended Unity desktop configuration tool, on Linux Mint 13. MyUnity can usually only be used on Ubuntu operating systems, however you can get it to run under Mint as well with a little source-file customization

1 Preliminary Note

MyUnity was originally designed to work only with Ubuntu systems none have occured to me until now though.
you have already installed the Unity desktop. If not, install it by entering the following into a terminal

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

while installing will be asked which login-manager you would like to use. mdm is the one Mint 12 uses by default, lightdm is the one Ubuntu uses.

2 Downloading MyUnity Source Files

want to modify one of MyUnity’s source files already installed any version of MyUnity you need to uninstall it first.

sudo apt-get remove myunity

change to the Downloads directory

cd ~/Downloads

Log in


download the myunity sources and install the tools

tar -zxvf myunity-3.1.5.tar.gz
cd ./myunity-3.1.5/
apt-get install gambas2-dev gambas2-gb-gtk gambas2-gb-form gambas2-gb-gtk-ext build-essential vim-nox

3 Compiling

appropriate source file so that it recognizes our operating system as Ubuntu 12.04

Open Main.module and look for the line Uversion = Right$(Tmp_split[1], 5  replace it with following codes

vi Main.module
Uversion = "12.04" ’Uversion = Right$(Tmp_split[1], 5)
ready to compile
make install
To run MyUnity

Using Rex To Automate Your Datacentre

I actually “hate” to be honest  in my day to day work I come across a lot automate is the better thing to do a task more than once. To automate process I have confusion what tool going to use for that Puppet, Chef, CFEngine etc.


Things like Puppet, Chef etc. come along and when you look at their documentation, well, it’s huge and takes a lot of time to install and configure properly.thi automation thing is used to do that on 40-50 servers.


Rex is a lightweight framework and small I got excited and saw the possibilities of using it. The big advantage to Rex from your “master” server can use your ssh keys so you don’t have to install daemons on your target servers.

How Rex is structured

After creating rex project after installation check the install docs: rexify should be used a new folder will be created with very clean structure.

  • All your hosts and usernames and passwords will be there in file Rexfile
  • perl module (.pm file) will be there in the lib folder so you can test if your connection with your server group is working

Apache Server Setup with Mod_Fcgid, PHP5 on CentOS 6

This document explains how to setup Apache web server with mod_fcgid, which is high performance alternative to mod_cgi or mod_cgid, it starts a sufficient number instances of the CGI program to handle concurrent requests, and these programs remain running to handle further incoming requests.

1. Make sure SELinux is disabled before starting

open SELinux configuration on vim editor (/etc/sysconfig/selinux)

vi  /etc/sysconfig/selinux

# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
# enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
# permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
# disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded.
# SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values:
# targeted - Targeted processes are protected,
# mls - Multi Level Security protection.

Save the file and reboot the machine
2. Setup EPEL repository as mod_fcgid is not available in default CentOS repository
