I've done some manual change of document root in httpd.conf for a user. I know that now, I don't need to to manual change since user can set there own folder!
Now, If I rebuild Apache, he will re-do all the configuration to the original one. Where can I find the settings for domain document root so I can change it and EasyApache will rebuild the httpd.conf correctly?
I don't want to remove the domain since I'll lost all email account!
Just have some questions regarding server settings and security
1) What will happen if Open_basedir in php.ini is changed to Open_basedir = /home:/tmp ?
2) What will happen if all hosted users in passwd file are set to /sbin/nologin ??? Dose it effect running the web site?
What are the effects if Sync if set to /sbin/nologin default is /bin/sync shutdown if set to /sbin/nologin default is /sbin/shutdown halt if set to /sbin/nologin default is /sbin/halt news if set to /sbin/nologin default is empty netdump if set to /sbin/nologin default is /bin/bash Mysql if set to /sbin/nologin default is /bin/bash mailman if set to /sbin/nologin default is /bin/bash cpanel if set to /sbin/nologin default is /bin/bash
3) How to make /bin/bash in passwd file is the default path for each new user added (automatically) in cpanel/whm server
4) What is the effect if base64_encode and base64_decode if been added in disable functions?
5) How to secure host.conf and nsswitch.conf to prevent DNS lookup poisoning and also provide protection against spoofs?
6) How to secure the system configuration file sysctl.conf to prevent the TCP/IP stack from syn-flood attacks?
how to set up dns correctly as I have been trying for over a day now and not succeeded!
The situation is that I am using whm/cpanel. I have a domain hosted with godaddy that I want to point at my vps space. I have entered the nameservers into godaddy, and it now shows the placeholder page when I go to my domain.
I have set-up a user with ftp access to my main domain in whm, and uploaded an index page to test.
If I type in my domain name it goes to the godaddy placeholder page, if I type in the IP address it goes to an apache 'great success' page, and if I go to the same IP but with the users name added, it goes to the index file I uploaded.
I have played around with dns zones and A records but cannot get the index page to show when I enter my main domain name.
Our business is in the middle of changing to a Exchange based Email Platform which will be take effect in a few months, NOT NOW but planning ahead I'm trying to help with the DNS issues behind the scene. The current Host and Registerar is flarehosting. However I have just transferred the Domain Name to my NAMECHEAP account and need to take over the DNS Controls. I want to make SURE this is done without ANY downtime for the company (website, current email system). After contacting the current host for correct settings I have 3 things I need help with.
newerafinance.com 18.104.22.168 (Used for Domain) mail.newerafinance.com 22.214.171.124 (Used for WebBased Email AND pop/smtp) MX is mail2.uploadmysite.com
I was told with the above info I need to setup ARecords, CNAME, and URL Redirect and MX records. Before I try this myself I’d like some help with how this should be setup.
Exchange server will up at a future date so we need the current Email system to remain the same. Half of our users use pop/smtp and other half web based email.
I am being rejected by Hotmail when sending mail from my VPS. I want to send mails from punbb and OSCommerce, with various website hosted on one VPS/Cpanel/LAMP solution. And with sendmail or SMTP, it'a always the same : passing almost every ISP except Hotmail/Gmail. I also always get this part in my email header regardless of which website i'm sending email from :
Code: Received: from host.locker4adream.com ([126.96.36.199]) by host.locker4adream.com with esmtpa (Exim 4.68) So I think it's the host.locker4adream.com part that makes me rejected. Because it's almost the only line in the email header that is different when I am using Outlook/Thunderbird to send mail. This ip (188.8.131.52]) is mine and I never spammed or anything.
So i asked my host ro add rDNS. And I added this line to my DNS zone on my mail domain: Code:
lockeradream TXT "v=spf1 mx a ptr ip4:184.108.40.206/32 ip4:220.127.116.11/32?all" I am really out of solutions! Can anyone tell me if the SPF record stated above is ok?
