Mediawiki Fix Internal Server Host Names / Redirection In shared Hosting or Proxy Setup

last updated in Categories , , , ,

Our customer support wiki runs on an internal host (ip:192.168.1.100:300, hostname a-node100.:300) and it is behind the nginx reverse proxy server. However, our Apache server end up displaying internal server name http://a-node100.:300/, which results into an unexpected redirection and timeouts as http://a-node100.:300/ is not accessible over the Internet. How do I force nginx or apache to use the base URL of our server (http://support.example.com/wiki/)?

Linux Disable / Remove All NFS Services

last updated in Categories , , , , , ,

NFS was not designed with security in mind, and has a number of weaknesses, both in terms of the protocol itself and because any NFS installation must expose several daemons, running on both servers and clients, to network attack. I use my CentOS based server only to server web pages and nothing else. How do I disable NFS services under RHEL / CentOS / Fedora Linux?
