Beanstalkd is a simple and fast workqueue service that Officeshots uses for communication between the main website and the background daemon that does most of the heavy lifting.


Beanstalkd is not available in Debian Lenny, but it is available in Debian Squeeze. I have chosen to install the Squeeze package on Lenny. Here is a simple solution on how you can install Squeeze packages on Lenny.


There is not much to configure about Beanstalkd. All you need to do is to edit /etc/defaults/beanstalkd to enable the daemon and to enable persistent storage.
