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.
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 @OLD_CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT=@@CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT */; /*!40101 SET @OLD_CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS=@@CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS */; /*!40101 SET @OLD_COLLATION_CONNECTION=@@COLLATION_CONNECTION */; /*!40101 SET NAMES utf8 */; /*!40103 SET @OLD_TIME_ZONE=@@TIME_ZONE */; /*!40103 SET TIME_ZONE='+00:00' */; /*!40014 SET @OLD_UNIQUE_CHECKS=@@UNIQUE_CHECKS, UNIQUE_CHECKS=0 */; /*!40014 SET @OLD_FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=@@FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS, FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0 */; /*!40101 SET @OLD_SQL_MODE=@@SQL_MODE, SQL_MODE='NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO' */; /*!40111 SET @OLD_SQL_NOTES=@@SQL_NOTES, SQL_NOTES=0 */;
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.
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?
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.
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.
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....
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.
1.) Personalized hosting with custom made packages Support via IMs, PMs & Emails. "Feel at home"
2.) Automated hosting & pre-made packages. Support via inefficient "live help" operators who have the same answer - "Your support request has been forwarded to a higher authority" . No interaction with the owner & the "professional feel"
I like no. 1 & thus I provide hosting on the same principles.
So which one do you prefer, & if you are a host, which one do you incorporate?
I have a problem with the email accounts .. All of it doesnt work when i try to check them on microsoft outlook .. i'm using a whm/cpanel on a VPS from godaddy. When ever, i try to "Send & Receive" emails, i'll be prompted for the user and pass. Even when i've entered the correct one, i'll still be prompted again. I believe its one of the settings in my whm/cpanel as i have no problems with the other email accounts that i'm using from a different shared host.
I've been concerned that my cPanel email address on my dedicated server hasn't been receiving emails. This was confirmed when an email sent by request from a friend did not arrive. The address is fosterd(***at***)pcfastlane.com if anyone would like to send me a test email.
What are the steps I can take to see if my cPanel email software is running correctly? I have already looked into my mail statistics, and it seems as though there are messages not being delivered, a fair amount which seem to be spam, but others that may not be.
My provider is using mailfoundry for spam filtering.. but I used IMAP (stored on server) for email.. my problem is that I'm also using a catch-all address and I make up random email names for sites I go to, to check for spam on the incoming side..
I setup filters in Cpanel to remove the selected spam or emails I don't wish to recieve.. but they don't seem to remove themselves.. it could just be a setup problem or it could be the mailfoundry.. not sure..
Here's the settings I have in cpanel (I just altered the name) is this the right setting.. or does it go elsewhere?
