  • 6 OpenSSL command options that every sysadmin should know

    Transport layer security (TLS) is an important part of any security strategy, and applications beyond web servers increasingly take advantage of the protections offered by public-key cryptography. The OpenSSL toolkit is the fundamental utility that any systems administrator must know if they are responsible for maintaining TLS-protected applications. In this article, I demonstrate some of the most common commands that I use daily. While many articles focus on the generation of certificate signing requests (CSRs) or self-signed certificates, this article will spend some time reviewing OpenSSL commands and one-liners beyond the certificate generation process.

  • PHP Moves To GitHub Due To The Compromise Of The Official PHP Git [Ed: So they've decided to go to a perpetually (by NSA via Microsoft) compromised repo.]

    In the latest software supply chain attack, the official PHP Git repository was compromised and the code base tampered with. The changes are said to have been made yesterday on March 28.

    Two malicious commits were pushed to the php-src repo from the names of Rasmus Lerdorf and Nikita Popov. For your information, Rasmus Lerdorf is the creator of the PHP. Nikita Popov is Software developer at Jetbrains.

  • PHP's Git Server Compromised, Now Switching To GitHub [Ed: Jumping from the frying pan to the fire, choosing a surveillance trap as if it's any form of security rather than complete surrender.]

    The PHP programming language's self-hosted Git server was compromised on Sunday and two malicious commits introduced.

    The PHP core team is still investigating how the official PHP Git server was compromised but already they have decided to immediately abandon their self-hosted infrastructure and will instead use GitHub.

  • How to install go1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04 – NextGenTips

    In this tutorial, we are going to explore how to install go on Ubuntu 22.04 Golang is an open-source programming language that is easy to learn and use. It is built-in concurrency and has a robust standard library. It is reliable, builds fast, and efficient software that scales fast. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel-type systems enable flexible and modular program constructions. Go compiles quickly to machine code and has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. In this guide, we are going to learn how to install golang 1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04. Go 1.19beta1 is not yet released. There is so much work in progress with all the documentation.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
