The default text editor in Jessie is LibeOffice Writer.
I just died a little inside.

Yes that seems to be an overkill.
I just amused myself with setting up a server with ISPConfig control panel:
I pretty much followed:

(I didn't install the mail stuff though).

I think it is still safe to say that Debian make a good server. +1
Phpmyadmin works. Clients can hook up their domains on the server in ISPConfig.

In this case, I gave the steps to upgrade to 8.0 above and why...

Debian 8.0 with LEMP stack

Postby viking60 » 03 Jul 2015, 13:34

Puh I managed to set up a LEMP stack on Debian 8 (Jessie) LEMP is a server where Apache has been replaced with nginx (pronounced engine X).
Nginx is faster (for static content) and much lighter than Apache but the main reason for developing it was the 10K problem. 10000 concurrent clients will cause serious problems and demand heavy duty hardware investments. The point with Nginx was to handle this with the Software architecture.

Today you can save your money and use Nginx instead of upgrading your hardware.

So I followed this description
with some small changes. I did not want to have my server in /var/www/html so I altered that in
/etc/nginx/sites-available/default

Code: Select all

    server {
    listen 80;
    server_name localhost;
    root /home/berserk/public_html;
    index index.php index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;
    location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
 }
    error_page 404 /404.html;
    error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
    location = /50x.html {
    root /var/www/html;
    }
    location ~ \.php$ {
    try_files $uri =404;
    fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
    fastcgi_index index.php;
    fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
    include fastcgi_params;
    }
    }


The server runs fine php and mysql works but the main problem always occurs when you want to import that great big database - like this forum - into Mysql.

So I followed my own advice here I dropped (aka gave up on) phpmyadmin and decided to use Adminer.
The difference is that the php.ini file is in /etc/php5/fpm/ (used) and in /etc/php5/cli/ (not in use afaict) but I edited both.

But nginx still reported to big a file.
Solution:
I had to enter a line into /etc/nginx/nginx.conf in the http section:

Code: Select all

client_max_body_size 40M;

(This value has to be higher than the size of your database)

Rebooted and.... :drummer :drummer I could import this forum to the mysql database in Debian 8. :jackpot

Wow. Nice.

Was that 40M this forum? If so, I'm really surprised that the db is only 40M?

+1 Yup this forum is about 40 M Databases are mostly text so that is a lot of text....

Ah, true.
Unfortunately over the last years, I've forgotten a lot of this stuff.

Debian 8.0 update

Postby viking60 » 18 Aug 2016, 08:02

I have installed Pacapt on Debian 8 because I prefer to use the Arch Pacman to handle updates.
So I updated my Debian 8 today like this:

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -Syu

It updated a lot and everything just kept working. Debian is probably the most reliable server out there....

Re: Debian 8.0 Solid over time

Postby viking60 » 15 Sep 2016, 12:34

I have had Debian on my box for quite some time and updated it again today - like this:

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -Syu
:shock: :!: +1

I am "Archefied" so I like Pacman better than Apt and Debian is almost 100% compatible after the installation of Pacapt - so I can use my beloved pacman.

So what can I say about Debian? It still is the distro with the most shity "NO-nb" translation out there.
That is pretty much the only negative thing I can come up with.

I update - often or seldom - it doesn't matter; Debian works - Just works! That sounds like a huge compliment and it is meant to be +1 All the software I need for a Desktop is there, and certainly for a server.

If you are the type that don't like surprises then Debian might be for you! It stays on your box "forever" and works "forever".

I'm debating putting it on my HP laptop that still has the wireless issues with Mageia. Mageia may be user-friendly, but severely lacks hardware and package support. I remember Mandriva would be behind on quite a few things as well. I so much love Arch better than anything, but if I run into hardware issues with it like I have Mageia on installation, then I may run into trouble. Maybe Debian would have the hardware support I need.

I think it is worth a try.

Manjaro and Arch are more likely to get the drivers first though, Fedora is an option too.
