A web badge is a small image or text used on websites to promote web standards, products used in the creation of a web page or product, to indicate a specific content license that is applied to the content or design of a website, to comply with an application’s terms of service, to encourage your visitors to check your social network status, or even to display visitor’s informations. such as ip address, user agent, hostname etc.

Today’s story, we’ll make a badge for visitor’s ip address using php and javascript. This badge, for an example:

create a php script called ipaddr.php as follows

if ( isset($_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"]) )    {
	$ip=$_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"] . ' ';
} else if ( isset($_SERVER["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"]) )    {
} else if ( isset($_SERVER["HTTP_CLIENT_IP"]) )    {
	$ip=$_SERVER["HTTP_CLIENT_IP"] . ' ';
$IpAddr = $ip;

if (typeof(v_ip_BackColor)=="undefined")
  v_ip_BackColor = "white";
if (typeof(v_ip_ForeColor)=="undefined")
  v_ip_ForeColor= "black";
if (typeof(v_ip_FontPix)=="undefined")
  v_ip_FontPix = "16";
if (typeof(v_ip_DisplayFormat)=="undefined")
  v_ip_DisplayFormat = "You are visiting from:<br>IP Address: %%IP%%";
if (typeof(v_ip_DisplayOnPage)=="undefined" || v_ip_DisplayOnPage.toString().toLowerCase()!="no")
  v_ip_DisplayOnPage = "yes";

v_ip_HostIP = "<?php echo $IpAddr ?>";

if (v_ip_DisplayOnPage=="yes") {
  v_ip_DisplayFormat = v_ip_DisplayFormat.replace(/%%IP%%/g, v_ip_HostIP);
  document.write("<table border='0' cellspacing='0' cellpadding='5' style='background-color:" + v_ip_BackColor + "; color:" + v_ip_ForeColor + "; font-size:" + v_ip_FontPix + "px'><tr><td>" + v_ip_DisplayFormat + "</td></tr></table>");

When I was looking for ways to replicate the contents of memcached for high-availability performance, I found this memcached-repcached application. that has the ability to replicate the contents of one memcached to another.

Repcached key features

  • Multi master replication.
  • Asynchronous data repliacation.
  • Support all memcached command (set, add, delete, incr/decr, flush_all, cas)

People probably already know about memcached . It’s a robust, high performance key-value based memory object cache interface. but unfortunately, lack the ability to create redundancy and replication in memcached server clusters. although replication could be done at the application level. However, it all depends on each individual’s taste.

This is a quick and dirty experiment I have tried using memcached-repcached application on 2 servers.

Download memcached-repcached from repcached.lab.klab.org
Or you can download source rpm version from here

On the first server and second server extract memcached-1.2.8-repcached-2.2.tar.gz, compile with –enable-replication option when configure.

$ tar xvzf memcached-1.2.8-repcached-2.2.tar.gz
$ cd memcached-1.2.8-repcached-2.2
$ ./configure --enable-replication
$ make
