Theming Monit with Apache ProxyPass

And suddenly, I felt like Monit Web interface was using too many pastel colors… Looking at the manpage, the HTML source and the source code, it was clear that it couldn’t be themed without a source modification and compilation ; and that’s not fun. But what’s fun is to rewrite the CSS on the fly so that stock-Monit just looks much better, to my eyes.

My Monit runs on localhost and is published by an Apache ProxyPass directive ; which supports live substitution. This is what I needed to replace the CSS.

Let’s Encrypt Apache using OpenBSD

The other day, I discovered that my StartSSL certificate was not trustable anymore. That caused one of my vhost to display the Your connection is not secure alert page. Here’s how I switched to Let’s Encrypt using Apache 2.4 and OpenBSD 6.1.

OAMP – Apache using FastCGI Process Manager on OpenBSD

Once upon a time, there was a way to run PHP with Apache on OpenBSD using the php-*-ap2 package. At that time, OpenBSD shipped with home-patched Apache 1.3 and provided Apache 2.x as a package. Since then, Apache 1.x was dropped from base, replaced with httpd(8) and ports gave the opportunity to run either Apache 1.x or Apache 2.x. This is when PHP packages and Apache 2.x became quite a pain in the ass to use. Thanks to the ports, one could deal with it. But binary PHP packages are not built this way. One way to get PHP and Apache is to use FastCGI. Here’s how to run the OAMP 6.0.

Proxify SOGo access with OpenBSD

I used to run all of my services on the same OpenBSD server. Now that I switched to a virtualized environment, I’m on the way to dispatch the services on various virtual machines. As I have issues with the family’s iPhones and the SOGo 1.3.8.1 instance running on my OpenBSD gateway, I think it’s time to switch to an up-to-date version running elsewhere.

Here are the directions to publish a remote SOGo instance, here 1.3.13, with an OpenBSD Apache.
