There is a long time now from my original post on running Django with python 2.6 on cPanel based servers, and as time passed there was some issues while deploying Django in such a way. So I decided to post another post with some updates regarding deployment of any python based scripts trough mod_wsgi and cPanel.

Short tutorials on some comon and not so common tasks in linux.
Here is the simple to follow step by step tutorial on howto run latest Django on cpanel powered servers with python 2.6, virtual env and mod_wsgi.
If you are running cPanel on your server it's most probably a rhel or centos distro, and those will have by default python2.4 installed. You can't just overwrite your python2.4 as many of the system utilities are depended on the python2.4 So what we will do is install an alternate python 2.6 and setup our server to run Django instances with python2.6
In one of my previous post I made a tutorial how to bypass corporate firewalls and gain access into your office computer. It work well if you are at your home and you need ssh access (or any other service) to your office computer. However if the situation is reversed, and you need to access some outside service which your firewall is blocking then you would use this little tutorial with explanations. Although all this is covered in the ssh man pages, one always learn best by real life examples, so here I'll try to cover few of them.
There are tons of reasons why would one want to create a rsync server. For example you wish to backup your data to a remote server but you don't want to backup everything every time.
rsync is an open source utility that provides fast incremental file transfer. rsync is freely available under the GNU General Public License and is currently being maintained by Wayne Davison.
Synergy is a nifty tool for cross platform clipboard, keyboard and mouse sharing. It's reasonably easy to configure synergy server for use with multiple synergy clients.
Doing so will spare you some time while working on multiple computers at your desk at once. I use it at office to connect my laptop's and office computer mouse, keyboard and clipboard and thus reducing or completely eliminating need to lean over my laptop every time I need to use it. Anyway, most of the people use it with quicksynergy wrapper allowing even easier setup, but what the synergy lack is a means of authentication and security in data transfers. I'll try to guide you how to make a secure synergy setup on untrusted networks.
