Apache Toolbox provides a means to easily compile Apache (IPv4/6) SSL, PHP(v3/v4), MySQL, Jakarta, a large number of modules (61 3rd party modules and 36 default Apache modules, static or as DSOs), and GD libraries with PNG+JPEG+Freetype2+zlib support. It is fully customizable and menu-driven. Everything is compiled from source, and wget is used to download any missing modules. It can also check for RPMs that might cause problems and create an RPM with your selections.
PHP Shell is a shell wrapped in a PHP script. It's a tool you can use to execute arbiritary shell-commands or browse the filesystem on your remote Web server. This replaces, to a degree, a normal telnet-connection. You can use it for administration and maintenance of your Web site using commands like ps, free, du, df, and more.
TrinityOS is a step-by-step, example-driven HOWTO on building a very functional Linux box with strong security in mind. TrinityOS is well known for its strong packet firewall ruleset, Chrooted and Split DNS (v9 and v8), secured Sendmail (8.x), Linux PPTP, Serial consoles and Reverse TELNET, DHCPd, SSHd, UPSes, system performance tuning, the automated TrinityOS-Security implementation scripts, and much more.
apt-cacher is a CGI script which can be used by apt-get to request downloads of Debian packages (and release files) from the Net. Each downloaded file is cached into a directory, so subsequent requests for the same filename are filled from the cache. This is useful when you have multiple Debian installations to update, particularly if you are on the end of a slow Internet connection. apt-cacher is easy to install; you only need to have a local Web server on which you can place the CGI script and create a directory for the cache.
NetInstaller lets you create setup wizards for Web applications written in PHP. Users only have to upload two files; everything else will be decompressed online on the server, created, and configured. This eliminates the need to perform tedious permission changes (with chmod) or to upload of hundred of files in order to install a PHP application onto a Web server.
Web Domain Manager is a script to automate setting up and deleting domains from a server. It uses a backend script that runs every minute from cron, checks a MySQL database for updates, and installs or deletes domains from the server as needed. There are three frontends for this script: administrator, reseller, and end user. They can be used to administer a server or server farm, or a user can make small changes to his own domain. This script is made to work with Apache, PHP, and qmail with vpopmail.
DharmaDoc automates most of the tedious work involved in setting up a local Web server that contains a Buddhist reference library. The program allows you to download and install documents, and generates a search engine index. Afterward, you can just type your Buddhist topic of interest into a Web browser and get a wealth of information.
mrepo (formerly known as Yam) builds a local APT/Yum RPM repository from local ISO files, downloaded updates, and extra packages from RHN (Red Hat Network) and 3rd party repositories. It takes care of setting up the ISO files, downloading the RPMs, configuring HTTP access, and providing PXE/TFTP resources for remote installations. It was primarily intended for doing remote network installations of various distributions from a laptop without the need for CD media or floppies, but is equally suitable for an organization's centralized update server.
