How To Enable Multiple HTTPS Sites For One IP On Debian Etch Using TLS Extensions

Howto Forge - Fri, 16/11/2007 - 3:24pm

How To Enable Multiple HTTPS Sites For One IP On Debian Etch Using TLS Extensions

This how-to is Debian specific but could be ported to other distributions since the concept is the same. In order to use TLS Extensions we have to patch and recompile apache2 and recompile OpenSSL with the enable-tlsext directive. Since TLS Extensions are relatively new, some internet browsers will not work so the apache2 server will deliver just the default site as http 1.0 does on an http 1.1 server.

How To Install courier-imap, courier-authlib, And maildrop On Fedora, RedHat, CentOS

Howto Forge - Wed, 14/11/2007 - 11:04am

How To Install courier-imap, courier-authlib, And maildrop On Fedora, RedHat, CentOS

For some reason there are no Courier packages (courier-imap, courier-authlib, maildrop) available on RedHat-based distributions (RedHat, Fedora, CentOS), and the only third-party repository that had such packages seems to have closed (enlartenment.com). Therefore this tutorial explains how you can create and install your own Courier rpm packages from the sources, and I provide download links for my Courier rpm packages that I compiled on Fedora 8 (i386) so that you can save some time.
