Anyone here have any experience with coldfusion? Im substituting in for our IT guy who is on holidays and Im having some problems with our coldfusion server.. the dam thing is "hanging".
Its on a win2k3 box, this box also runs our fileserver/domain controller and a few other things..
The box itself dosnt have any problems, Domain controller/fileserver never hangs... just the coldfusion pages.. All im doing is stoping and starting the service to get it going agian... but i need to find a real solution...
I have a dedicated server right now running PLESK for Windows and MS SQL 2000 w/CF MX 6.1
We're in the process of migrating to a NEW server that will be Windows 2003 R2 64bit.
Do we need to buy CF 8.0? Or can we use CF MX 6.1 still with the new 64bit OS? We also planned to load up MS SQL 2005, any issues with CF MX 6.1 and SQL 2005?
Thank you for any feedback, trying to avoid the ~$650 upgrade to 8.0 as we are fine with the current functionality of 6.1. If we are forced to u/g for interoperability I guess we won't have a choice...
A customer of ours is looking to use ColdFusion and MS SQL 2000.
Our VPS provider does not provide for ColdFusion or MS SQL so we referred them to another host. This host is unable to properly configure for their needs, and we are standing by the client to assist until everything is working properly.
Can anyone recommend a good host who provides cold fusion / ms sql plans using VPS?
Is this too much to ask and should they be looking at a dedicated server?
Well when it comes to anything that isn't windows hosting, I'm pretty knowledgeable about but when it comes to windows hosting I'm clueless about it as I pretty much never have any need for it. One of my business partner is looking to place there site on a more affordable hosting since there current rate is pretty high.
They have a simple site, which they are really not looking to get much traffic or use anymore then 2gigs of space. Probably needs at least one MS SQL Database and that's it. No more then 5gigs of bandwidth. All they want is something for show thats it, other then that they don't utilize the site for anything.
Can anyone recommend a good host for this with 24/7 live support?
my dad hired someone to build a web site for one of his clients and the guy used codfusion for the forms. I should have just built the site myself, but time is money and I have little time. So, is it possible to install coldfusion on a linux server RHEL3 with cpanel? I've got 3 other dedicated servers as well without cpanel that are running centos.
We had a Coldfusion site running MySQL without issues. We are in the process of doing some upgrades and as part of that we recently switched over to MSSQL 5. Ever since that happened, we will have random page hangs. This usually happens on pages with more complex queries, but it is very random. There is no timeout error on the server, no page cannot be displayed errors, no errors of any kind, the page will just hang. We have been monitoring our server resource monitor and we can see when the page 'gives up', we will go from 100% CPU down to almost 0, and then the page simply never recovers. Does anyone have any idea what might be going on? When there is no error message of sorts it makes it very problematic to troubleshoot.
We currently have a dedicated development server with our company's host (not hostgator) in which we are charged a decent amount to have on a yearly basis. I was looking to cut down costs and wanted to see if it would be feasible to have a windows box we have in the office setup as our development server. We would install windows 2003 on it along with anything else we need. The current development server is hosted under a IIS 6 / Windows 2003 / CF 7 Environment. If it is doable, what kind of problems would we run into vs having it on a real server? It would only have at the most 3-4 connections possibly once or twice a week so speed is not a huge deal.
Also, how tedious is installing, setting up and migrating everything over for the MSSQL database going to be?
Some of our customers needs Coldfusion MX 7 on a RedHat Enterprise 4 Linux Server that comes with cPanel. At [url]I can see there is support for RHES 4, but will it cause any conflict to install this app in the same server that cPanel is installed?
I recently updated servers and noticed that Coldfusion 11 is not longer supported by plesk, dissapointing, but I can understand that its not used enough for plesk's attention. OK.
If plesk is going to no longer support it, how can I get it to leave Coldfusion alone and to stop applying permissions to the X:Coldfusion11 folder? If I have to connect Coldfusion to each IIS site, thats no big deal, but just want to make sure that I am safe from plesk breaking things.
I was wondering if I could get some information from those who frequent this site. I'm looking for some good hosting companies that specifically deal in some niche areas. If anyone could point me in the direction of some hosts with an affiliate program and deal in either ColdFusion, Adult, Fantastico, or Co-Location hosting, That would be awesome. The hosting company needs to be an overall good company as well, so if you've worked with a great company, or heard good things about a company that deals in the above categories, please respond to this post.
I am planning to host my personal website which will be a bunch of static pages for the time being with the possibility of moving to PHP/Pearl CMS later.
For this, I think that a basic hosting plan of about .5-1GB space and 5-10GB bandwidth would be well enough.
Can you please suggest me a host which would cost around 2-3$/month and has a moderately good service? I came across companies like Umbrahosting and HostPC which are cheap. Do you have anything to say about them?
Moreover, some hosts give combo offers of webspace+domain registration. Is it wise to register the domain through the host or to register it separately through godaddy etc?
Im in the process of setting up my ecommerce store selling baby/childrens clothing items etc. But I cant decide what webhosting site to use. Ive heard a lot about hostmonster and 1and1...which one of these are better?
I've just received my second suspension from them, for having 5 visitors on my website, which was abuse of their resources.
I had issues with them last month, they claimed I was using too much resources and had to upgrade to Business class. I've paid for two years there as it is.
Every time I would get these notices, I'd work with them and it was found that one comment bot was hitting my site repeatedly (one post several times in a row which really shouldn't cause any problems anyway) and would cause things to raise. In their email, their support said:
Your account is unsuspended now. Please check and prevent future overloads. Also we can block ip addresses of your referrals, when all connections is from one ip instead of suspending your account. Should we block 220.127.116.11 and similar?
When I said yes, I was sent this reply:
IP 18.104.22.168 blocked in our firewall. We'll act similar way, when your account will be leeched from one IP. Now this ticket is being closed.
So tonight, I redo a post, since their hotlink protection isn't stopping hits on the photo being linked to, which involved uploading an image and deleting the old, and shortly thereafter I get this:
We have suspended your account due to resource abuse. Please find the related information below:
All of them supposedly me. But at any rate, only 5 users at namecheap can apparently bring about a suspension. I have never in my life had such treatment by a host. Most of the site is a static site, where most people land. And this is for less than 50 people on a daily basis.
They may have a good reputation as a domain reseller (yes, they're now ICANN registrars, but they haven't switched over yet, they're still reselling for Enom) but they had better rethink their webhosting.
People I know who have WordPress pages at places like Dreamhost, Lunarpages, all the rest have way more traffic than I do and yet they don't have these problems. I'm just sick at they way I've been treated there.
Whatever you do, don't host with namecheap. I'm truly sorry I did. And if anyone wants to verify that I host with them, it's hauntedlights.com, obviously a really exploitable site. It's about haunted lighthouses.
I have been with web hosting talk for just this month and in the past 8 days I have had down time at least 1 everyday for around 2-3 hours. I just contacted the VPS support to see why I am not even able to start the server using Virtuozzo Control Panel and this is what they said:
'We are facing a network issue at the moment. Our engineers are aware of this problem. Efforts are on to restore service at the earliest. We apologise for the inconvenience.' And then I ask them the simple question, Why was I not informed about all this downtime and errors on the system - This is what he said to me:
'We have already posted this on our forum. You can have a look at http://www.webhosting.uk.com/forums/network-status/4724-network-issue.html' So I say to him:
'So I get expected to look at your forums every time I have downtime or any problems with the network'
'I think this will be the last month of me paying for this server.' Then he says: 'No every time but if there is any major issues, we always keep posted on our forums.'
