Linode Library:
Deploy High Performance Drupal Sites with Mercury on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid)
June 29, 2010 @ 10:03:41

On the Linode Library there's a recent tutorial posted about deploying Drupal sites (high performance ones) out to production server with the help of Project Mercury StackScript Linode offers.

This high performance Drupal system is based on the work of Project Mercury. Project Mercury aims to increase the performance and ability of Drupal powered websites to respond to increased load. This document leverages the same collection of popular open source tools including the Varnish Accelerating Proxy, the APC bytecode cache for PHP, Memcached for accelerating database operations, and the Solr search engine.

The tutorial shows you how to get the software you'll need installed, and includes details on how to configure each of them for maximum performance - Drush, Apache, Varnish, Solr, Pressflow and, of course, Drupal. All software is installed via packages to make things much simpler and snippets of configuration files and commands are included to make the setup relatively painless.

Idrish Laxmidhar's Blog:
How to send mail from Localhost with XAMPP and mercury/32
February 01, 2010 @ 11:19:39

In a recent post to his blog Idrish Laxmidhar walks you through the process of getting Mercury set up for local mailing and used by an XAMPP installation for debugging.

Had tried to make php mail() work on localhost. But had failed. So gave up. This was around 8 months back. Now again some days back had to use the Php mail function on one project. [...] A lot of google searching and some simple steps, I could make it work. So here sharing my experience with you.

He starts with a list of requirements to follow along with his process - a web server, a mail server (in this case Mercury) and a mail client - and then starts into the steps. Each one is accompanied by screenshots showing you exactly what each of the screens should look like as you follow along. In the end you'll have a local mail server you can connect to and test with without ever having to send out a public email.
