How To Force your site visitors to use shared SSL connection

Shared SSL Connection

From time to time, our technical support department is asked how to direct website visitors to view a website over HTTPS. Here is an example:

How to centralize server logs with Rsyslog?

Centralizing Server logs with Rsyslog

1. Overview

Centralizing logs from multiple servers on one server can be of great interest to the security level within a system of information. Indeed, it is easier for log analysis tools to compare, read and scan files being on a single server rather than doing it remotely or through remote agents.

On most of the modern Linux systems then log management tool is by default Rsyslog and it is one that we will use in this tutorial. Here, we will work on two machines running Debian 7, one acting as a server, the other as a “client” that will send its logs to the server. In both cases, the configuration file to edit is always /etc/rsyslog.conf. One can nevertheless put in /etc/rsylog.d/ and make a “include” in the main configuration file to import.
