Servers generally log a great deal of information about what they are doing, what applications are running and other system management activities. One set of logging in particular is performed by dmesg, or driver messages. If you’ve ever watched a Linux system boot up without a splash screen and wondered what all the text that scrolled up the screen too fast to see was, those were the messages that were logged to dmes

 

Previously, in our Hosting 101 series, we looked at using Nginx as a replacement web server for Apache in a LAMP stack for web hosting. At the end of our last article we had Nginx configured, but only able to serve static files such as HTML files and images. In this article, we are going to look at the changes needed to configure PHP and Nginx to work together in order to serve dynamic content to your users.

Informative Monday mornings with 100TB’s Technology News Roundup: Google skips three generations of Moore’s Law; Blockchain keeps data safe; EU adopts cybersecurity rules; Amazon open sources DSSTNE; Yubiko accused of security through obscurity.

IT departments used to call their colleagues in other functions ‘end users’. Now they more typically refer to them as ‘customers’ (or sometimes ‘internal customers’, to differentiate them from the organization’s real customers).

This week 100TB brings you the highlights from the world of quantum physics: scientists create a new form of light in two dimensions and an AI performs a flawless Bose Einstein condensate Nobel Prize recreation.

The business start up phenomenon is showing no signs of slowing down. Ideas are everywhere and the incredible ubiquity of technology is enabling people to take the leap with minimal risk, transforming these ideas into reality.

In this article we will be looking at getting PHP5 configured to work with Nginx on your web server.
