[HOW-TO] Install mod_rpaf for Apache 2.2

By BXTra | Sun, 02/13/2011 - 23:59

When you do a reverse proxy in which Nginx will be the one who listen the traffic and forward anything needs to be process through PHP to Apache. With this, Apache will always receive an IP from Nginx server (or I should say localhost / / local IP), not the real IP that user uses. In order to let Apache knows what is real user IP, we need to install mod_rpaf.

Just copy and paste code below into SSH :

[HOW-TO] Use Nginx as a reverse proxy for DirectAdmin

By BXTra | Sun, 02/13/2011 - 21:45

I try to use Nginx as a reverse proxy to see if there is any improvement over Apache Worker MPM or not. I found an instruction from DirectAdmin webboard but it's quite old. So, I just tried to follow their steps and do some modification to match what I have read. Below is what I did

1. You need to compile Nginx. Nginx version 0.8.54 is the lastest stable release as of today. So, just copy and paste below code into your SSH

[HOW-TO] Use "mod_fastcgi_handler + PHP-FPM" instead of "mod_fastcgi + PHP-FPM" (Less code to work on)

By BXTra | Fri, 02/11/2011 - 19:41
I have read about mod_fastcgi_handler which I think it will help me to write less code to work on PHP-FPM. Checked their website, even they say it's beta quality and there are a couple bugs. I still think I should try it. So, below is what I did to replace mod_fastcgi with mod_fastcgi_handler. 1.

YUM - remove cache of mirror URL to be able to switch to a new one.

By BXTra | Wed, 02/02/2011 - 23:59

I just tried to install CentOS on local machine and found that when I ran 'yum install', it will always go to specific mirror url that is so slow. I know there is some cache to tell yum to use it but I don't know where on it. Try to search in google but many problem comes up that didn't relate to what I want to fix. Until I found a link below tell me where is yum cache file located. Just run command below :

[HOW-TO] Enable and setup PHP-FPM in DirectAdmin (PHP 5.3)

By BXTra | Tue, 02/01/2011 - 23:08

I've heard about PHP-FPM about a month ago from DirectAdmin webboard. Then, a few weeks ago, I had a couple websites that I need to make it run faster. After tried to do many things with it like ... to use mod_fcgid / XCache / Memcached, I feel like there was something in XCache since "Page execution time" is quite high. Then, I remember that I've read from many websites that XCache doesn't really work with mod_fcgid. From the technical point, all of them explained it clearly to understand.

By BXTra | Tue, 01/18/2011 - 18:37
Just edit node.tpl.php and insert code below to anywhere you want :

print l(t('Add Comment'), 'comment/reply/' . $node->nid, array('fragment' => 'comment-form'));

Make sure that , 'comment/reply/' part is relative to your path. If you access your website through www.myweb.com/web. Then, that part would be , 'web/comment/reply/'
