Action Plan For A Huge Traffic Increase

Sep 30, 2007

Let's suppose you have a site on a shared hosting plan, and all of the sudden it gets a huge surge in traffic as a result of being featured in the news or something like that. What would be a good plan of action to deal with the surge quickly?

(ex. maybe your hosts takes the site offline from bandwidth overuse)

I Have A Site That Gets Huge Traffic Spikes. What Setup Should I Have

Sep 16, 2007

I am currently moving from my current dedicated servers because they simply cannot handle the load. I have a site which frequently makes it onto radio, digg and other similar sites.

I need a dedicated server that can take a beating from Digg and offline Media. For most of the month the server load is really low, the site hardly uses up anything. However, when it hits those sites, it suffers.

I am OK with using Shell, just basic tars/logs/sqldumping/httpd.conf editing/rebooting etc.. anything beyond that like installing and configuring software I cant really do.

I guess I am looking at a dedicated option (linux based) with a host that'll setup software/modules modules for me when I ask, but doesn't really need to hold my hand all the time.

How are's servers? Do they manage the servers?

I like to create some service plans using the cli-tools, /usr/local/psa/bin/service_plan.I am able to create a service plan, but I'm unable to create a service plan inside a reseller plan. For example I cannot "tell" the service_plan script to add the created serviceplan to a reseller plan. Is it possible to create a serviceplan inside a reseller plan, using the cli?

Legal Action Against Host

May 24, 2008

i would like to present to you a scenario im sure everybody has thought of and has come up against.

1. If you are hosting with a web host and your files and website has been compromised due to the lack of security on the server what actions can you take against the host for this loss?

2. The host has a backup dating back to a week, but of course the data you have accumulated for the week that was lost is very valuable but you cant get it back now because of a flaw with the hosts server, is there anything you can do in a situation like this?

3. What if you are a reseller and have setup several sites for customers. One customer uses a CMS which means he/she will be updaitng their website every now and then and not always you are able to make backups of all the websites hosted by you as the reseller.

Now a weeks or a few days of data have been lost. The client complains and wants to take legal action against the reseller (you) and of course the reseller knows its the problem with the main host you are hosting with. What does the reseller do now with the client and the host whos made the mistake?

4. Clients livelihood depends on his/her Ecommerce website, they make an average turnover. Whether you are hosting on a dedicated or VPS nevertheless data loss has occured because the box was compromised. The blame is put on the host. In a scenario like this what can the customer do? He/She has lost some client details/orders information and products as a whole...? Remember this is a business... and money has been lost. A recovery backup a week old will never be sufficient enough for the loss.

Think about it... what will you do if any of the above four scenarios were to happen to you?

Yes i am aware of the terms. Some hosts will say they are not responsible forData loss in their small prints,
Some will say it is soley up to the customer to make backups,
When it comes to court they will point this out, and you'll be kicking yourself for being so foolish to go with a host in the first place which dosent gurantee the safety of your data.

Customers dont always read the small fine prints. Now realistically speaking what can the customer/client do in a situation like this? Im guessing nothing if the host outlines the terms ive pointed out above?

Is there really a host out there which takes whole responsibility for the loss and damage they create to your websites and businesses online?

The worst hosting you can get is followed by and then All these have major complaints online. Hostdepartment servers are down about 50/50. 50% of the time the server will have problems and downtime throughout the day. Maybe not down for hours, but the servers will drop from time to time maybe 10 minutes here and there. Also surprisingly has downtime. The server is actually currently down as this is being written. For those who wish to gather a class action lawsuit against hostdepartment, webhostasp or vortechhosting, you may contact me at cashzzz at hotmail. Alertra is a good tool for monitoring your site.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: How To Add Action To Fail2ban

Aug 10, 2014

Well with activated apache-badbots jails I have in a short time a hugh amount of banned IPs. Usualy action for this is to use iptables-ipset-proto and save all this baned IPs in the ipset insteed as normal in the iptables list - thats also a suggestion which was discussed in the fail2ban forum for better performance. And yes I had this running (ipset package installed) with my manual installation of fail2ban before I switched over to the plesk integrated.

action = iptables-ipset-proto6[name=BadBots, port="http,https,7080,7081"] insteed of action = iptables-multiport[name=BadBots, port="http,https,7080,7081"]

So how can I add iptables-ipset-proto4.conf, iptables-ipset-proto6-allports.conf, iptables-ipset-proto6.conf to the plesk version of fail2ban??

How To Find How And Who Uploaded Files- Spam - Action I Can Take

Mar 27, 2009

I have a dedicated server, the server itself is secure (as far as I know) and I run lots of my sites from it. I offered a friend hosting for his flash based chat application he built.

Today I was contacted by someone; "Are you the owner of" so I informed that yes, it was my server and they then showed me an email they'd received from my server. I did a search and apparently someone uploaded mail.php and a couple of files it was using to send out spam based upon a variety of conditions that the other files met. The files contained forenames and surnames, it'd use a forename and a surname then send it to popular free mail services. The email contained ramblings about new world order and promoted a website.

How can I find out how they got the files uploaded to the account and what action can I take? I checked the whois for the domain and have their contact information, however it's a large site so I'm doubtful that the owner did it. I don't want my servers IPs being blacklisted for spam :|

HostNine Won't Let Me Cancel My Account And Is Threatening Legal Action!

Jan 7, 2009

Does anyone know the proper avenue for cancelling an account with HostNine? They are giving me the run around and ignoring my requests for a cancellation. I originally tried to cancel my account a couple of months ago by e-mail. They informed me that I had to submit a cancellation request through their website. I have submitted a cancellation request through their website SEVERAL TIMES since then. They never sent me any kind of response or confirmation, so I assumed (wrongly, I guess) that the account was cancelled, but they keep charging my credit card over and over.

I have requested again that the account be cancelled and told them that I would simply perform a chargeback since they are basically billing me for a service that I have continually requested be cancelled via their own online cancellation form using their own process for cancelling accounts. Nick Hudson @ HostNine's response to this was to threaten that they would send attorneys and collection agencies after me. All while claiming that it is "NOT hard" to cancel an account. I agree with them; cancelling your account when the company will actually deal with you should not be hard.

Plesk 11.x / Windows :: Server Response Was Requested Action Not Taken / Mailbox Unavailable

Apr 14, 2014

I've just recently installed Plesk Panel 11.5. Previously I was using a basic IIS Mail Server with the current server allowed to relay messages for my Web Sites.After installing Plesk, I went to Tools & Settings -> Server-Wide Mail Settings. In there, I have relaying set to Authorization is required (SMTP) and for the relay access I have the following 3 entries:
<My Servers IP>/32

Whenever one of my sites tries to use this server now to send out mail, I keep getting the following error:Mailbox unavailable. The server response was: Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable or not local...I've been struggling with this issue for weeks now and have read all the documentation and forum posts I could think of, I've restarted the server, I've run C:Program FilesSWsoftPleskadminin>mchk --all --fix=all

The e-mail accounts that I'm using to send mail from has nothing to do with this server and it's domains, I'm just trying to set the mail server to start sending mails like my IIS server used to.I've found the setting to Open Relay on the server and have activated it, yet whenever one of the websites attempts to send a mail, the same response is received.Mailbox unavailable. The server response was: Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable or not local.

Huge File To Transfer

Jul 8, 2009

Just moved to a new server, and of course, 10GB doesn't seem that large for a server but for some reason wget is not able to handle the transfer of that backup for me... it transfers about 1MB then tells me "successful transfer..."

The old server is using cPanel, and the new server is just a plain old server that I haven't loaded up yet.

how I can get this full backup over to the new server?

Huge Apache Logs

Feb 3, 2008

I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I'm looking for a nice and simply way of breaking up log files into smaller chunks.

I've been running apache2 on a VPS for the past few months and one of the access.log files is now 700mb big... bit of a waste of space. I'm currently just doing:

CustomLog /var/www/logs/ combined
ErrorLog /var/www/logs/

In my apache config.

Is there any easy way of telling apache to just keep the last week or months worth of logs?

Huge INBOX File

Jun 23, 2008

I had several user accounts that were pushing their quota. I was digging around in SSH and found that the INBOX file in /home/username/mail was huge even though the user does not keep messages on the server. I deleted this file to free up space and all seems file. A couple seconds later I did check and the file was recreated with new incoming mail.

My question is how do I keep this file from growing out of control? One of the users I had for almost 2 years had an INBOX file of almost 2GB!

VPS running WHM 11.23.2 cPanel 11.23.3-R25623

Logwatch Huge Report

Oct 29, 2007

I have been receivig a huge logwatch report, seems that logwatch is not parsing the /var/log/secure file, but sending the log entries instead of any resume of it. I got thousands of lines like

Cp-Wrap: Pushing "47 GETDISKUSED pvargas" to '/usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximadmin' for UID: 47 : 25 Time(s)
Cp-Wrap: Pushing "47 GETDISKUSED r.perez" to '/usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximadmin' for UID: 47 : 69 Time(s)
Cp-Wrap: Pushing "47 GETDISKUSED r.rodriguez" to '/usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximadmin' for UID: 47 : 114 Time(s)

I have upgraded to the most recent version of Logwatch with default configuration. Any ideas on what could be wrong?

MySQL With Huge Database

Nov 26, 2007

ways to improve the database performance in the situation when I have to modify a large table (several million rows), by e.g. adding a column. Currently this would take several hours which is too slow. The bottleneck is disk I/O. I am considering either partitioning the table over several innodb files on several disks, or going to a RAID-5 or RAID-10, it this will give me better write performance.

The database is 130GB large, and the problem table (which I make period changes to) is the largest table on the server. I cannot have downtime of 3 hours each time I make a change and adding blank fields (to be used later, when a new field is needed) is not an option.

Each time I add a column, the cpu goes into high (80%) io wait state for about 3 hours.

I have a hack which would allow me to split the large table into multiple smaller tables based on some criteria (for example, forumID or such). Here are a couple of things but would like to know which is best, and am open to new ideas. The ideas so far:

1. Split the table into 3 or 5 smaller tables each on it's own disk. The disk IO would then not be so bad, and it might only take 1 hour to perform the table change. But this might not work because the changes to the database (as in adding a column) might be serial, meaning only 1 disk is being written to at a time. (Then again, maybe it will work if I launch 3 different scripts, one to update each table at once).

2. Do RAID 5 or 10, and have 3 or 5 disks. This again might not help at all because of the above issue with MySQL writing serially.

I am using latest MySQL 5.0.45 with InnoDB engine on Debian etch Linux
