Automated MX Records For New DNS Entries In WHM

May 18, 2009

I run my own Mail Server.

Everytime I create a new website account in WHM I am required to go in and manually edit the DNS record to include the MX record of my mail server.

I would like to streamline the process and need a way to make WHM automatically include my MX records every time I create a new account. Is this possible?

Automated Backups

May 20, 2009

I have a dedicated server that only has around 3-4gb of data on it. I would like to do automated nightly backups for as cheap as possible. I don't want to pay to have my server managed just to be able to have automated backups, so what other solutions do I have? I know I can get really cheap storage from Amazon or Mosso, but is there a way to automate this?

Mysql Automated Backups

May 18, 2009

some software that can be ran on a desktop that will allow me to download and backup my databases from my Cpanel server.

I have a remote backup server that once the databases are backed up can be uploaded to this location. Im not too sure if im going around things in a long winded fashion, but ideally i need a solution that can take management of my database backups.

The cpanel dedi im using at the moment is currently utilising the Backup feature, so this is a secondary backup. At the same time i would like to select which databases are backed up too.

Realistically im looking for your expert advice here, im a novice when it comes to server admin etc so your expert help to guide me would be fantastic. Im not to sure whether i would need a desktop tool to back these databases up, or whether it can be done at a server level? Dare i say it im just used to using GUI's and not so familiar with command lines etc.

Automated Backups And Disaster Recovery

Jun 8, 2009

I'm used to operating dedicated servers. This year I want to venture into getting a reseller account and / or media temple account.

With my dedicated servers, I do automated mysql dumps and I do nightly rsyncs of all my /home /etc and other important data so disaster recovery is possible.

My question is, how do you do the same thing? Sleep well at night? with these regular web hosting accounts?

I see most newbie people who pay for web hosting do not bother to backup their data. Ignorance is bliss until disaster strikes.

How do you automatically backup your data (mysql and directories) in your multiple web hosting accounts like reseller or grid service media temple?

Automated CPanel Home Dir Backup - How To

Apr 23, 2007

Is there a way to automate the generation and FTP of home directory backups in Cpanel?

CPanel lets you create a full account backup and ftp's the result to another server but can only be done manually from what i understand. Is there a way to initiate the process automatically? maybe schedule it for once a week.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Automated Secondary DNS

Feb 25, 2015

Are there any providers out there can be integrated with Plesk so that DNS zones for all vhosts are automatically propagated on the secondary DNS service?

I've asked DNS Made Easy but they advised that the domain has to be set up manually with them first.

Is It Possible To Build An Automated Server That Could Record Radio From The Net

Nov 13, 2008

I run an online music archive site . Djs can upload their mixes to share and we also archive radio shows for people to listen back to.

Basically I was wondering if it would be possible to build a secondary server that could do this for me.

The secondary server could have multiple cast rippers running and could record internet radio shows, then once finished recording transfer it could send them over to my primary server to add to the website for people to download.

CPanel Automated Backup Is NOT Backuping One Big Database

May 2, 2008

i recently find out that I don;t have an database backup for one of my biggest websites.

The database I'm talking about has 228 tables (198.6 MB)

In the backup file I only get this :

-- MySQL dump 10.11
-- Host: localhost Database: lxxxxxxa_sXXXl
-- ------------------------------------------------------
-- Server version5.0.45-community-log

/*!40101 SET NAMES utf8 */;
/*!40103 SET TIME_ZONE='+00:00' */;

The other databases I have tried are all ok, but none is this big. Is there any size limit ?

I have uploaded an printscreen with the setings of my WHM.

CentOS & Automated File System Check

Mar 14, 2008

I have a centos server & whenever I reboot it, it goes into File System check and takes about 1 hr to turn online.

The irony is, I reboot the server only when the load goes high (esp when traffic is high).. And the server is down for long times when traffic is high.

The server config is pretty good, but it shows these problems once in 15-20 days.

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Automated Emails For Server

Nov 17, 2014

I am using a Linux server together with Parallels v10.31 ... Unfortunately I get little or no real support from my host so and if I do it's cryptic.

I have been getting a large amount of emails from my server [hundreds daily].
I have attached a screen grab indicating type of email being sent.
I have created only one cron job and that was to reset the RAM on a regular base.

Also is it safe to update to the latest version without a major disaster happening....

Any Colocation Providers Offer Automated Cpanel Licenses

Jul 1, 2008

Just wondering, since it appears to be hard to come by, but are there any providers that offer the option to use an automated system in order to provision new licenses for cPanel (or others?)

For example, you're setting up a VPS in the middle of the night, customer wants cPanel. You can't use the trial licenses via since they limit you to 3-4.

If your provider has an automatic API to bill and provision your license, you're good to go. If you don't...

Options? I'm mainly looking in Montreal (I know of Netelligent and Iweb, but both are manual povisioning).

It's not a make-or-break thing, but something nice to have.

Plesk Automation :: Automated Secondary / Backup MX Server

May 8, 2014

It has been bought to my attention during our upgrade planning, that PPA & Plesk Panel do not offer the functionality for setting up a backup MX servers. In our current configuration we use Sendmail as both secondary and tertiary MX servers. These are manually configured and prone to configuration mistakes.

Multiple scenarios need to be taken into consideration.

Scenario 1: Hosters Plesk hosted primary mail server + secondary & tertiary mail servers.
Scenario 2: Client hosted primary mail server + hosters secondary & tertiary mail servers.

I am looking for alternate ways for backup / secondary MX servers for our planned PPA / Plesk deployment. An automated solution would be ideal, but we are falling short trying to find a solution to streamline the process and remove margin for error.

Multiple DNS Entries

Mar 16, 2008

I have been searching through threads on WHT, but have not found anything really conclusive regarding this.

If I were to list two A records for the same domain name on my nameserver, such as: -> ->

How would most browsers handle this?

Would it only try the first entry, or would it try the first entry, and if the specified IP is unavailable it would try the second entry?

APF Entries And CIDR

Sep 25, 2007

I have been trying to figure out how to allow a range of IPs with APF. I finally came across the CIDR page on wikipedia and read it though, and now I get it. I just want to confirm one thing before I implement this.

I run a gameserver where I want to allow everyone in the world to connect on a certain port, so can I use this entry?

From what I understand, using the /0 CIDR suffix basically means "all IPs". So technically I could use ANY IP address for the source with the /0 suffix and it will work right?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Redirect On Automated Login And HTTP Referrer

Oct 21, 2014

I'm trying to redirect users to database/mail management pages with automatic login link, while logging in part works ok, I have issues with redirections.

Plesk is installed on different server than my site, and if I try to use "success_redirect_url" param in link url, it will show this error "Original link and target URL should be on the same domain."

It works ok if I prevent browser from sending http referrer to plesk, but I'm not sure if it will work for all user as this depends on their browser.

Is this a bug? Is there a workaround that would not depend on used browser?

Apache 2.x Config Entries

Apr 13, 2009

I used to have a dedicated server running Apache 1.x (1.3 I think) and in my httpd.conf there were entries about keepalives, maxservers, minservers etc.

I've now got a VPS from FutureHosting, which is brilliant. In my httpd.conf file though, there are none of the above entries. It is running the latest version of Apache (2.2.11).

Are all the keepalive / minservers settings handled automatically in 2.2 or do I just have a default setting and maybe need to add them manually?

I don't have any load issues so haven't touched the config so far.

Lossing Entries On My /etc/localdomains

May 23, 2008

I discovered this forum googling and i think is a very good community, so i registered and well... as any noob, started to ask questions U.U im new in this stuff of web hosting... though i know some things... i dont have experience, its my first job in a small web hosting company, and we have a strange problem, we loss entries on /etc/localdomains when we migrate domains from one server to another and nobody knows why... we can fix it trough deleting the dns entry and creating it again on the target server. I know its kinda messy (for me at least) i hope u can give me at least an insight of where the problem might be.

We do the migration trough the migration tool of WHM

Here is some data about the target migration server, if u need something else... please tell me.

CENTOS Enterprise 5 i686 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0

uname -r


vmstat 5 5 ......

DNS (MX) Entries - Gmail For Your Domain

Feb 7, 2007

I'm running a dedicated server with Plesk 8.1

For all newly created domains, they will automatically adopt a DNS template which I've set up in Plesk. But for my own domains (not clients) I've changed my MX entries in my DNS Settings section to point to the server of that of Gmail (Google). The primary server with the highest priority is ""

To get to the point...
I receive emails on the Gmail interface, which is stored on the Gmail server, though I have a slight problem when it comes to local emails. In other words...when my server sends out an email to myself (either from a contact form, daily log files, etc...) I don't receive the emails through the Gmail interface, but rather through my POP server, which is logical, since my server is most probably configured to use "" and not "".

Question :
How can I have both incoming emails (from other domains/servers) and local emails (from my own server) go through the Gmail server? I'm guessing that I'll have to edit Sendmail or PHP or something, though I'm not sure, that's why I'm posting this.

Sorry if the post is a bit confusing. I tried my best to explain the situation, though if you have any questions, please respond with them.
