chroot PHP for use with nginx

Posted 10-31-2010 at 10:40 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I never had to deal with chrooted environment before, and there isn't lots of info out there on the net. Best result I've found so far is http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/howto-...oted-jail.html
Actually, it covers almost entire topic, but I'm going to explain how to bind it with nginx in gentoo linux environment.
Say, you have a site example.org with some app you don't really trust in /app dir. Your own-written site scripts are executed in non-chrooted PHP environment...

PHP - misleading thoughts

Posted 03-07-2010 at 10:29 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I've recently used to hear from many guys that PHP is bad and useless language. Well, generally the source of that point of thinking is a bad code written by newbies(or mature noobs).
Yes, I admit PHP has some basic functions missing, some features need to be improved, etc. It's far from ideal language. But it is very easy to learn.

S*it for opensource

Posted 11-29-2009 at 11:44 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])
Updated 11-29-2009 at 12:20 PM by Web31337 (fix mistake)

True story from IRC about how to make sh*t from opensource. It is just my way of thinking.
Opensource should be a god's light. You may judge me for saying or doing this in a rough way... but i stand my ground for opensource. and this is just my way of doing things. i will never use a help of dark lords of proprietary software.

Real nicks(and a project name/version too) are replaced with "some_other_developer" and "Project_Lead_Developer". I don't really...

How it's meant to be done with PHP

Tags cms, opensource, php

I have been working on SEO topic for last two months. Now i got some free time and decided to get back to web31337 CMS coding.
As usual, when I get back to my code after month or two i begin to see some stupid code or mistakes =))) I find it quite hard, because, honestly, if i continue it that way i will never be at the end. I'm searching for an ideal code but i can write none of it myself by now It's a thing needs time and skill. I guess anyway i will finish it sooner or later so make...
