Howto: Adding share in samba server under Linux or UNIX

Q. How do I add share called incoming? This share definitions should be linked up to directory called /home/incoming.
A. You can define a share using samba configuration file itself. Open /etc/samba/smb.conf file and add code snippet as follows:
# vi /etc/samba/smb.conf
Add following code:
   comment = Icomming data
   writable = yes
   path = /home/incoming
Save close the file. Restart Samba :
# /etc/init.d/samba restart
If you are using Redhat/CentOS/Fedora core type:
# service smb restart

Image IP Logger

We will need : 
- image.php
- image.jpg
- .htaccess


$date = date("d-m-y / H:i:s");
$refer = $_SERVER["HTTP_REFERER"];
$BR = "<br>"; $HR = "<hr>";
$IPS = @fopen("log.html",'a');
$s = "<b>ip: </b> ".$ip. $BR . "<b>Date: </b>".$date. $BR ."<b>Refer: </b>". $refer. $BR ."<b>Agent: </b>". $agent. $BR . $HR;
fwrite($IPS, $s, strlen($s));
header('Content-Type: image/jpeg');
// Get image from file
$img = imagecreatefromjpeg($imgpath);
// Output the image
We could use an gif image then use imagecreatefromgif instead of imagecreatefromjpeg


RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^coolimage.jpg image.php

Lighttpd PHP fastcgi configuration

FastCGI is a language independent, scalable, open extension to CGI that provides high performance without the limitations of server specific APIs. FastCGI provides better scalability and performance. Instead of creating a new process (the CGI program) for every request, FastCGI uses a single persistent process which handles many requests over its lifetime. (See wikipedia article for more information)
