Configuring, Tuning and Debugging Apache
Apache is a wonderful, robust and easily configurable HTTP server. However, it is also a complex piece of software that requires some experience in order to tune correctly. When mod_perl is added to the mix, the complexity increases even more. Luckily, it is possible to install Apache such that installing and upgrading modules can be easy and painless.
Moreover, a number of modules and tools (such as mod_status and Apache::Status) make it possible to view the internals of Apache as it is executing. By taking advantage of these tools, we can find and fix problems with our servers, spending our time on more interesting issues than trying to figure out why a server does not run.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
