UPDATE: Install Latest rTorrent and libTorrent on Centos 6

Since I made a post about installing rtorrent on centos 5.6, I thought that I'd do that for Centos 6 as well. Anyway, Centos 6 comes with many updated packages which makes it possible for us to install the latest libTorrent and rTorrent packages (0.12.9 and 0.8.9 at the time of writing) without having to mess with compilation tools and libraries on the system.

Integrate a PHP Web App With NginX and PHP-FPM Easily

Yesterday I made a post about how to install NginX, PHP with PHP-FPM and MYSQL on a Centos server. Today I decided to show you how to integrate your favorite PHP web application on that setup. Sure, this will work on any OS but you must have NginX, PHP with PHP-FPM and MYSQL installed! For this tutorial, I will be using Wordpress as my PHP web application.

Install PHP 5.3.6 with PHP-FPM, MySQL and NginX 1.04 on Centos 5.6

If you want to host a web application like Wordpress or any kind of PHP app with database requirements without spending an outrageous amount of money on a server, a LEMP server (Linux, Engine X, MySQL, PHP) is the way to go. You can use this setup on servers with memory as low as 100MB.

How To Install libTorrent and rTorrent on Centos 5.6

rTorrent is my favorite Bittorrent client when I'm on a linux machine. It's lightweight, fast and easy to use (while some people will disagree about that). For this setup, I'll be using a Xen VPS (100mb RAM and 10gb disk) with Centos 5.6 x86 installed. Although I am using Centos, this setup will work flawlessly on Fedora, Amazon (tested) and other Red Hat systems. So, as long as you have an rpm based distro, you can follow this guide.
