Filed under
Ubuntu

omgubuntu.co.uk: The following idea, proposed on Ubuntu Brainstorm, puts forward the sugeestion that users should be allowed to configure the application set before installation. Sort of like the Windows Browser ballot but for, well, pretty much everything.

Follow-up post to Canonical Microsoft

Filed under
Ubuntu

theopensourcerer.com: It seems as though I completely failed to make the point I was trying to make.

How To Set Up MySQL Database Replication With SSL Encryption On Ubuntu 9.10

Filed under
Ubuntu
HowTos

This tutorial describes how to set up database replication in MySQL using an SSL connection for encryption (to make it impossible for hackers to sniff out passwords and data transferred between the master and slave). MySQL replication allows you to have an exact copy of a database from a master server on another server (slave), and all updates to the database on the master server are immediately replicated to the database on the slave server so that both databases are in sync. This is not a backup policy because an accidentally issued DELETE command will also be carried out on the slave; but replication can help protect against hardware failures.
