I am just wondering whether my idea will work for the google search engine.
Basically, I have my official VPS root (home/admin/public_html/) and this is where my main website will be hosted. However, since my VPS will be used for additional website, I will direct additional domains to it.
My second site hosted on this VPS may have a document root of (home/admin/public_html/advertising/). And my domain will then be setup to have that as its document root.
However, when google searches for my second site (e.g. advertising.com) will it go 'below' the domain root? For example, will it also creep the files under /public_html/ for this domain, even though the domains root is /public_html/advertising/?
edit: Or do people host multiple sites differently? Is this an appropriate method?
I have a server that I have a few domains on, and I have a question about the root domain. I initially picked any old domain, so now all of my name servers are pointing to this one random domain. I have since purchased a few more premium domains, and am wondering if I should change the nameservers to be the more premium domains? Does this matter? Should I have my "main site" be the root domain? Just trying to understand what the implications could be for me.
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!
I would like to do do following using basic authentication:
1. non authenticated users have access to the index page: [URL] ..... 2. there are other pages, e.g: [URL] .... but these would require basic auth 3. if users are not authenticated they would be redirected to [URL] .... otherwise authenticated users would have access to [URL] .... or anything else under that domain
Googlebot has been absolutely ripping through my bandwidth. This has been on going for many months now, but each month the damage has gotten worse and worse. I have posted about this problem here but with no luck:
I want to add a subdomain foo.bar.com to a master domain bar.com in the subscription bar.com. Normally this works but if I set the hosting type of the master domain to forward, I cannot add subdomains anymore. If I have already added a subdomain, I cannot change the hosting type of the master domain. Also it is not possible to add a second domain to the subscription anymore.
Yes, it’s quite true. DreamHost representatives are asking their clients to block GoogleBot trough the .htaccess file, because their websites were “hammered by GoogleBot”.
Dreamhost representatives are also guiding their clients to make all their websites “unsearchable and uncrawlable by search engine robots”, because they cause “high memory usage and load on the server”.
PS: This is NOT a rumor. Multiple people are already complaining about Dreamhost asking clients to block search engine spiders. A post in QuickOnlineTips confirms this too.
If your server is blocking googlebot from finding your robots.txt file, how do you configure your firewall to unblock it?
I've searched through Google and I've seen may people just say your firewall is blocking it, but none mention how to really stop it from doing that. Like does Google have an IP it uses, and if so, what is the IP you should whitelist for your server?
As I keep getting that message: Network unreachable: robots.txt unreachable and I'm sure it's due to a firewall issue, just have no idea how to fix that.
One of my customers uses Webmasters Tools from google , looking at what pages he have indexed by Googlebot, found that 180 pages are giving a "DNS lookup timeout" error, tried searching for help on google and the only thing that i found is " We received a timeout on DNS lookup."
DNS are ok, same as the zone file, everything is responding OK, I dont know what can be the issue.. ? any ideas ?
We have more than 10 domains on the same webspace, sharing the same document root. When we try to add a new domain on the same web space (sharing the same document root) Plesk takes a long time to create it (about 10 minutes). While domain creation, all the other domains sharing the same document root and web space get an authentication error. When Plesk finishes, all domains work again.
I just got a dedicated server and i'm gonna tell you know - i'm not an expert! Sort have came to a problem with a zone file missing. Im running centos with cpanel/whm I get the following error.
The zone for the root domain ******.com is missing, or could not be read. The ip address will be read from the webserver configuration and a new zone will be created for this subdomain. Bind reconfiguring on server1 using rndc Created DNS entry for *******
what is difference working as root and su root in SSH.?
Many recommend disabling logging as root, but lot many commands ( service, adduser, ifconfig and ...) are not working on the commandline under when logged as su. i feel like my hands are tied working as su root and many commands are not available.
why is it like that? is there any way i can feel comfortable logging as su similar like root login.
I just recently had someone from this forum install CentOS for me with ISPconfig and required modules to successfully run PHPmotion. However, the only FTP I can access are the ones I create FTP for in ISPconfig, such as web1_admin, web1_testuser, etc.
When installing a CentOS server with ISPconfig, isn't there a root to log into the FTP?
With the FTP accounts that I have, I cannot access public and home directory such as /var/www directories.
Is there suppose to be an account for FTP so I can succcessfully overlook the whole server?
I want to take a look at all the websites I have such as /var/www/www.test1.com, /var/www/www.test2.com, etc. all through FTP. However, I cannot do this. It's almost like I have no Admin power over my server.
He did not provide me with a root FTP account or any super admin FTP account. I am not sure if something suspicious is going on or not. Please help. I do not want to get hacked in and stolen files.
I have a problem that after i su to root, i can't use some commands:
Last login: Fri Jul 13 10:38:55 2007 from 10.10.0.1 [admin@server ~]$ su Password: [root@server admin]# runlevel bash: runlevel: command not found [root@server admin]# service httpd restart bash: service: command not found [root@server admin]# service apf restart bash: service: command not found
But when i come to that machine and log in, i can use those commands just fine. That machine is about 20 fts away from my desk.
I got into my root and i created a CS server BUT after closing my root from my home the cs server goes down. can u tell me how to fix this ? i cant keep my root open for a life time, how much bandwitch does a ful 20 man Pub use in a month average?
I have a VPS and have a problem regarding the SSL certificate cPanel uses for secure connections (webmail, WHM etc..) my original hostname was set to server.simschr.co.uk but then I changed it to another name. However on the SSL certificate it states the old hostname, which I have been told is a bit of a pain. I wondered if there was anyway to change the common name, maybe by editing the certificate on the server?
