How to secure your ISPConfig 3 server against the poodle SSL attack

In the following guide I will describe the steps to secure your server against the recent poodle SSL attack. I will use a ISPConfig 3 perfect server on Debian 7 for my examples, but the same steps will work on any other Linux Distribution as well. A default ISPConfig hosting server runs the following services: Webserver (Nginx or apache), Mailserver (Postfix and Dovecot / Courier), FTP-Server (pure-ftpd) that offer SSL / TLS connections and are potential targets for a poodle attack.

How To Run Your Own Git Server With GitlabHQ On Debian 7 (Wheezy)

This document describes how to install and configure Git and GitHub. These are great tools to manage and administer a whole host of Git repositories and the associated permissions. So, these remain true blessings for users writing open source software, however, when writing a closed source software may not be comfortable in trusting the code to a third party server. To gain the much-needed flexibility and control on stuff like Github/BitBucket without hosting the git repositories on servers that lie external to the control of users, GitLab remains a Godsend!
