Centos – php json fail

April 30, 2010 Leave a comment

* Installed centos 5.4, and default php, but programs useing json_encode/decode is not working as expected
* Problem is php does not shifted with json, so it need to be installed.

1. yum install pecl

2. json extension need to add

[root@www html]# pecl install json


Build process completed successfully
Installing '/var/tmp/pear-build-root/install-json-1.2.1//usr/lib64/php/modules/'
install ok: channel://

3. cd /etc/php.d/

[root@www php.d]# echo "" >> json.ini
[root@www php.d]# ls
dbase.ini  imap.ini  json.ini  mbstring.ini  mcrypt.ini  mysqli.ini  mysql.ini  pdo.ini  pdo_mysql.ini  pdo_sqlite.ini
[root@www php.d]# cat json.ini
[root@www php.d]#

4. Restart apache

[root@www php.d]# service httpd restart
Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
Starting httpd:                                            [  OK  ]

Done, now json is available.

CentOS – postfix postfixadmin dovecot anti spam

April 24, 2010 Leave a comment

* According to this setup we can extend, the spam threat

1. By default we have working example for internetwork, but we need to receive public emails (google, yahoo, and cutomers domain) How?

vi /etc/postfix/

inet_interfaces = all #instead of localhost

2. Because its now on public, we need spam guard, how?

# we allow ourself
permit_mynetwork= $mynetworks
# incoming email/smtp need hello hand shake
smtpd_helo_required = yes

# without this we wouldn't made it so far, with spammers
smtpd_recipient_restrictions =

# unix another style, linux hash to use file.db, we compile it using "postmap filename" then it becomes filename.db
# /etc/postfix/clients:
#      OK
smtpd_sender_restrictions = check_client_access hash:/etc/postfix/clients

3.  Still we are not 100%, but yet done
