Please go to http://test.linuxcounter.net and review the new page. Logins and registrations are already working. OpenID and Google Login is not working, but Facebook-Login is working.

Review the page, use it, look around, test it, think about it and give us your feedback!
Also see the github project page here: https://github.com/alexloehner/linuxcounter

Without your feedback we can not know if we are on the right way with this new page and it wouldn't make much sense to continue developing this brand new page, if nobody wants to use or test it.
We really would appreciate your help here!

I'm currently heavily developing the nw page for the New Linux Counter Project. I'm writing this completly from the scratch again like the original page too, but now with using special frameworks and many other stuff like bootstrap for the responsible and mobile design.

All updates on the code are immediatly reflected to the LIVE development Test Page. If there are any changes on the code, this page will then change immediatly.
You can see (and use!) this LIVE development version of the new page here: http://test.linuxcounter.net. The logins are already working, also the registration. There is a nice social networking feature on the startpage (only for logged in people! Click on the linuxcounter logo, to reach the startpage). Everybody is welcome to use this new feature!

This new page is developed on github. If you are a Webdeveloper (PHP+OOP, MySQL, Bootstrap, JQuery) or a Webdesigner (HTML(5), CSS(3)), then you are invited to help me with developing this new Linux Counter page.
Simply write me an e-mail and tell me what you want to do and what your knowledge is about.

Best regards

I've decided to build a completly new page for the LinuxCounter.
This actual page was developed only by myself and completly from scratch without any frameworks and such. The new page will get a new design and it will make use of the famous Silex Microframework and including libraries like doctrine for the database connections and such.

You can see the code of the new page here: https://github.com/alexloehner/linuxcounter.
You also can see the live development version of this new page here: http://test.linuxcounter.net.
If there are any updates on the codebase on github, then it will be immediatly reflected on this live development version.

Attention:
If you are a profi with PHP, HTML(5), CSS(3) and of course Silex Microframework, then you may want to help me?
Just write me an email and I'll give you access to the code.]]>

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 16:43:53 +0000 https://linuxcounter.net/news.html#55 The following security problem in OpenSSL is fixed on the linuxcounter.net:

The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs).

The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users.

  • The server environment has changed! We are now using nginx together with the varnish cache, php-fastcgi and the standalone server of trac. Actually the varnish cache is deactivated, because of some configuration issues I still have to figure out. But the access and the responses are much faster than before with Apache.
    This was initiated due to very high load on the server because of an article about our project on slashdot.org.
  • We now have a completly newly rewritten update script! This script now uses native bash and doesn't rely anymore on a mailserver. It now also detects the distribution and its version. And it also contains an update notifier if the version you have is too old.
  • Login process and session management completly rewritten. There was an error in the session management that has caused a new session on every click.
  • Added the display of online users record on bottom of the page.
  • Machine summary statistics finished.
  • Implemented much nicer bars for percentage display
  • Many, many other smaller changes and fixes in the background...
