Zend, symfony, and CakePHP cron automation
A short few years ago, a common criticism about PHP was that it did not support MVC-style architectures. Today, developers can chose from many PHP frameworks. This article shows you how to integrate external tasks with PHP frameworks and create a simple task that can be called using a scheduler such as cron. You'll build the application in each framework, getting a sense for how Zend, symfony, and CakePHP handle automated tasks differently.

Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Mandriva
In this article I will describe how you can monitor your Mandriva 2008.0 server with munin and monit. munin produces nifty little graphics about nearly every aspect of your server (load average, memory usage, CPU usage, MySQL throughput, eth0 traffic, etc.) without much configuration, whereas monit checks the availability of services like Apache, MySQL, Postfix and takes the appropriate action such as a restart if it finds a service is not behaving as expected. The combination of the two gives you full monitoring: graphics that lets you recognize current or upcoming problems, and a watchdog that ensures the availability of the monitored services.

Keep an eye on your system with Log File Basics
A typical UNIX or Linux machine creates many log files during the course of its operation. Some of these contain useful information; others can be used to help you with capacity and resource planning. This article looks at the fundamental information recorded within the different log files, their location, and how that information can be used to your benefit to work out what is going on within your system.

Support AIX functionality with LDAP servers
Some platforms may lose their operating system-specific functionality due to the lack of schema support from the LDAP server. This article presents a solution for some non-IBM LDAP servers to support full AIX user management functionality by providing the AIX schema for these server types and the steps to update these LDAP server types with the schema.

Eclipse Higgins
The Eclipse Foundation released Eclipse Higgins 1.0, a freely downloadable identity framework designed to integrate identity, profile and social relationship information across multiple sites, applications and devices using an extensible set of components.

Multiple identity protocols have been developed to address different needs, including WS-Trust, OpenID, SAML, XDI and LDAP. This requires software developers to support multiple protocols, resulting in unnecessary complexity in managing identities. Additionally, individuals are particular about which entities they share what personal information. For example, one might not prefer to share credit card information on a social networking site as readily as with a leading on-line retailer.

Role-based access control in SELinux
Role-based access control (RBAC) is a general security model that simplifies administration by assigning roles to users and then assigning permissions to those roles. RBAC in Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) acts as a layer of abstraction between the user and the underlying type-enforcement (TE) model, which provides highly granular access control but is not geared for ease of management. Learn how the three pieces of an SELinux context (policy, kernel, and userspace) work together to enforce the RBAC and tie Linux® users into the TE policy. Read here

Master-Master Replication With MySQL 5 On Fedora 8
This document describes how to set up master-master replication with MySQL 5 on Fedora 8. Since version 5, MySQL comes with built-in support for master-master replication, solving the problem that can happen with self-generated keys. In former MySQL versions, the problem with master-master replication was that conflicts arose immediately if node A and node B both inserted an auto-incrementing key on the same table. The advantages of master-master replication over the traditional master-slave replication are that you do not have to modify your applications to make write accesses only to the master, and that it is easier to provide high-availability because if the master fails, you still have the other master.
