Miscellaneous Server HOWTOs

Important Notes


The following information is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Misconfigurations of services might lead to severe security problems. USE ON YOUR OWN RISK!


The HOWTOs originally aimed at setting up a Subversion (SVN) server with Kerberos authentication and LDAP authorization for a small LAN. If you want to only do that, you can follow the links below one after the other up to the Apache2 page. By and by, notes on further services have been added.

The HOWTOs mainly describe what to do to setup the services for the special purpose, not why. Please read the documentation of the packages to learn more about the way they work.

Note: The HOWTOs are written for Debian 5.0 “Lenny” and certain configuration options might be obsolete or unsupported in the current stable release. I would like to update the HOWTOs, but this can take some time.
