Chrooting scripts for Temboz and Stunnel

Filed under: Computing

I stumbled upon the Temboz RSS aggregator a few days ago and immediately knew this would replace my previous aggregator of choice, Feed On Feeds. To secure the built-in web server that ships with Temboz for remote use, I wrote a chrooting script for it and also ended up chrooting Stunnel to force Temboz to speak https (as in encrypted login information). Both scripts are for Debian (tested on Sarge). In a plainspeak nutshell: the computing section has received a long awaited update with the introduction of a Linux Server Notes department. :-)
