howto: create your own speedtest site

surprise! you too can have your own speedtest site and you dont need much. its already out there. you can use it internally or externally. you can even connect it up to a database to remember past results. but the most important fact to me is that it is open source.

and it is available from here 

first of all, you need to install some dependencies

yum -y install httpd php perl perl-CGI perl-Time-HiRes


secondly, the INSTALL file says you need to edit the speedtest.cfg. change the following to point to your server's hostname or ip address

  •     base_url
  •     upload_url

and finally, edit the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file

<Directory "/var/www/html/speedtest">
    AllowOverride all
    Options +Indexes +ExecCGI
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
