CentOS-based Server

Oct 24, 2007

I have setup a CentOS 4.5 on a server with no fancy options enabled.

The only thing I have is the ssh service running on port 22.

The server comes up fine but is inaccessible until I login into the console and pings an external IP or domain.

Once I have done this, I am able to remotely login into the server via ssh.
And then few minutes after, the server becomes unavailable again until I do the same routine...ping an external IP or domain.

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: CentOS 6.6 Based System - Activate Mod Rewrite With Proftpd

Nov 13, 2014

My company and I are currently discovering Plesk on a CentOS 6.6 based system. We are migrating from an old system on which FTP usernames could hold uppercase letters, which apparently is not the case in Plesk 11 (or is it because of CentOS?).

Anyway, as we can't change these FTP account names, I was thinking about creating a rule with mod_rewrite in the proftpd.conf file.

So the question is: how can I reinstall/reconfigure proftpd with this module activated? I don't even know where to find the corresponding package (which repo, correct version, etc...)

Zeus Based Server - Any Disadvantage

Apr 7, 2008

Few things I found that :

- they do not support mod_rewrite so that url cannot be rewritten or something like it

- they do not support unlimited subdomains, I do not mean actually unlimited, but 100 or 200 (eg. you allot usera.yoursite.com to some 200 or 500 members of your site) should not be a taboo, but Zeus administrator seems to think that can be a resource issue

- addition of space, currently apache hosts seem to be very liberal, and zeusbased ones not so, does zeus server typically still run on hard drives with lesser space

Anyone has any recommendation for Zeus, and if so, any recent experience with such host, who has been in business for last 8-10 years and also runs a support forum on their site where users freely communicate?

UK Based Dedicated Server Providers

Dec 5, 2008

The reason for this post is some slight unhappiness with my current US-based server provider. In the last sixth months, they've upped their prices over 30%, turned my server off for 6 and 24 hours by accident on two separate respective occasions (then tried to cover it up), before finally giving me some less than brilliant customer service.

That, combined with the fact that the pound is rapidly weakening against the US dollar has led to me paying for an overly expensive server, and also leaves to me wanting to move to a different and UK-based provider.

Now, I don't need (nor can afford) a massively powerful server - the one I'm currently on is fairly basic (single core Athlon, 512mb RAM, 10mbit and a fair whack of bandwidth) - but I do need the control it provides. A VPS providing a similar amount of processing power could be considered, but obviously on the guarantee that the provider isn't overselling etc. I'd like the server to come with DirectAdmin, to simplify migration a bit.

It's also important that the UK-based provider actually has their servers in the UK, rather than just being registered in the UK - the former would still leave me rather vulnerable to exchange rate fluctuation.

Does anyone have any suggestions: either to swing me one way in the dedi/vps decision, or for some decent providers?

Urgent Need Relaible UK Based Windows Dedicated Server

May 18, 2008

I usually host just PHP but a new client needs to use ASP and SQL Server. So I urgently need to find a UK based reliable Windows Managed Dedicated Server for around £100 to £150 per month.

The site only gets 1000 visits per week and runs a multi community from a 500MB SQL Server database.

I'm scared to go with a cheap host like 1&1 or Fasthosts but also think Rackspace may be way too expensive.

Is a dedicated server overkill for such a site?

Anyone know of a solid relaible host that can offer this with great 24/7 skilled support and daily backups.

I need to have a solution for client by Tuesday or they may go elsewhere.

Why CentOS/cPanel Server Went Down

I ran "last reboot -n 10" and "last" and grepped for shutdown calls, but nothing. /var/log/messages.1 reveals nothing as well.

Installing CentOS 5.2 On New Server

Jul 4, 2008

I decided to go with Cent OS after reading about it in the forums here, but I've had nothing but problems trying to install it. I first tried to do a net install but the installation took nearly an entire day because it would keep popping up messages about corrupt files when downloading the package files. Eventually it just gave up or rebooted because I came in in the morning to find it at a message saying "No OS installed". I then burned all 7 installation disks and tried that way, still got a few of the corrupt file messages (but far fewer than the previous time) and made it through the installation only to still have it say "no os installed" again after the reboot. I thought maybe it had something to do with the fact that I was not installing a boot loader (there is no other OS installed anyways) but when I tried to reinstall a third time, this time with the boot loader, it now says that the CD drive (USB) is already mounted on tty2 and I can't even start the installation? WTH!

The server is a Dell PowerEdge R300 with two Intel Core 2 Duo 64-bit processors. I'm using the x86_64 ISOs from the Centos.org mirrors.

Ubuntu Server Edition Compared To CentOS

Aug 23, 2008

I asked this question before in the past and I still have to ask it: has anyone used both Ubuntu Server Edition and CentOS? I would like to compare both operating system, in terms of speed, performance, security, and stability.

I have decided to build my new server and use Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit operating system after using CentOS 64-bit operating system for a bit over a year now.

The reason why I have chosen to use Ubuntu Server Edition is because of the operating system's fabulous reputation among desktop PC users, and its large and helpful support community.

Support is what I need most, and Ubuntu seems to have it. I also am not the best with Linux yet, so it will definitely be needed. Ubuntu also seems to update its software faster than other operating systems.

I hope my decision to switch from CentOS 64-bit to Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit will not be in vain.

Can anyone compare these two 64-bit operating systems and possibly link me to some reviews, comparisons, and/or benchmark results?

VPS With CentOS, LXAdmin, And FTP Server Root Access

Feb 26, 2009

I've just signed up for my first VPS with CMBHosting and the person in charge, Chetan Bakhru, seems like a genuinely nice, friendly and helpful person. In other words this new service look promising at the moment.

However ...

When I signed up I selected his CentOS/LXAdmin plan because I figured that with a pre-installed control panel like LXAdmin I could avoid as much ssh as possible and simply get "up and running" more quickly. Plus I have some experience managing my own CentOS development machine, and I know that a special software package I plan to install runs on CentOS "out of the box" -- so I was expecting good things from this new VPS.

But when my account was created LXAdmin did NOT create an FTP admin account for me with root access to my VPS!

Instead it created an account that drops me into web server's document root folder, and this is far too limiting for me. I really need FTP root server access -- and I'm surprised that LXAdmin did not provide this access by default.

Not only that, but it appears that I cannot create a new FTP account that has any deeper access than the existing admin account!

Does anyone with LXAdmin experience know if this is the way LXAdmin normally works by default? Or is this perhaps a special configuration created by my new VPS host?

Install Htop On CPanel CentOS Server

and got following output:

..................Reading repository metadata in from local files
Excluding Packages in global exclude list
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: htop
Nothing to do

Not sure if htop is available for CentOS cpanel servers? If so how can I install it?
