How to compare and merge text files on Linux (part 2)
This post is a response to the overwhelming comments about Meld (and other tools) on my previous article on text files comparison and merging tools. While my intention wasn’t to focus on code text only but to also present something useful to word editors and writers as well, but the coders community objected for the “shallowness” of the previous post so here we go with part 2.

How to extend GIMP with GMIC
GIMP is the n1 open source image editor and raster graphics manipulator that offers an array of special effects and filters out of the box. Although the software’s default capabilities will be more than enough for most people out there, there isn’t any reason why you couldn’t expand them if you wished for it. While there are many ways to do exactly that, I will focus on how to enrich your GIMP filters and effects sets with the use of G’MIC.

How to install Ioncube Loader on CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu
The Ioncube loader is a PHP module to load files that were protected with the Ioncube Encoder software.

In this tutorial, I will explain the installation of the Ioncube loader module in detail for CentOS, Debian, and Ubuntu.

Learn how to detect network equipment with Scientific Linux 7.1 and Python
Sometimes you might have network or firewall issues in an internal that require a network scan to find which IP addresses are in use. For that purpose, we can use ready-made tools such as nmap, zmap or angryIP. But if we have no internet access to download these tools we can do the scan by only using manual commands. However, the manual scanning can be quite tedious, with the understanding that should be done for each IP address given on our network.

Server monitoring with Munin and Monit on CentOS 7

Server monitoring with Munin and Monit on CentOS 7
In this article, I will describe how you can monitor your CentOS 7 server with Munin and Monit. Munin produces nifty little graphics about
nearly every aspect of your server (load average, memory usage, CPU usage, MySQL throughput, eth0 traffic, etc.) without much
configuration, whereas Monit checks the availability of services like Apache, MySQL, Postfix and takes the appropriate action such as a
restart if it finds a service is not behaving as expected. The combination of the two gives you full monitoring: graphics that lets you recognize current or upcoming problems (like “We need a bigger server soon, our load average is increasing rapidly.”), and a watchdog that ensures the availability of the monitored services.
