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...)
Is it possible to disable the option to change the system user (FTP/SSH) for customers. I can disable this for the control panel user but not the system user (FTP/SSH). Is there any option to do this that I didn't see?
This kinda follows on from a prev thread about advice on finding another isp.
My (soon to be ex) isp had email outage for over 3 days, I lost emails which means losing business and I don't want to be in this situation ever again.
I know that stuff happens and machines do go down etc. but I need to know how if possible a decent isp would be able to work around this, should they have a standby server, could they intercept/redirect incoming emails even though the account was down.
I'm not very technical but these are the questions I need to ask any prospective isp's
We are curently implementing a bulk emailing service,a ConstantContact type of service,that will be offering to our hosting customers. We are debating whether to use our own servers, or outsource this to a company that deals specifically with bulk email delivery.
Client has a nice website with a "contact us" online form. The form itself is secure (no injection attacks etc) and simply collects some data from the site-user, and emails that data to the site owners email address.
This email is sent using php "FROM" the siteusers email address (eg: email@example.com etc), so that when it arrives with the site owner, they can simply hit reply etc.
However - the site owners email is protected by "FrontBridge" (aka Microsoft), and suddenly they stop receiving such form-mail.
Response from FrontBridge is "If the IP that is sending these emails does not have the domain names that it is sending on behalf of registered to it, it can not send to our domain as it will be picked up and flagged as spam. " They then indicate that too much of this so called "spam" will result in a blacklisting - which is what seems to have now happenned.
Pretty unfair I'd have thought, and probably how MOST web based form2email scripts are setup.
I have a technical issue which I need to address, which is email signatures. Larger companies have email signatures which are posted by the server, and not the client. I was wondering if it was possible to put a signature on all emails which leave a particular domain using this method?
How do we disable email on the domain entirely? The client is hosting email externally - the offered spam filtering is wholely inadequate and we're seeing a few of these happening - to the point I'm considering offering externally hosted email plans anyway - but back to the problem - I need to delete the mailboxes and then disable mail - and then remove the DNS records for webmail etc - but can't seem to find how to turn off locally hosted email for a domain.
One of the projects I will work on will require to process 50,000 emails a day. Most of these emails would include attachments and the challenge is to process them and put all the stuff into a database for the application to use.
My biggest concern is spam and we cannot afford to lose out on legitimate emails. One way of configuring the setup would entail checking emails for the specific types of attachments and piping it in.
However I was just wondering if someone here has dealt with this volume of emails and also what are the spam limiting options available (even commercial would do)
I have a task of converting a current Win Server based apache server from multiple IP based virtual hosts to a full name based virtual hosting.I'm famiilar with the steps but I was wondering if there are any gotchas in Windows that I should be aware of. It seems that now matter what I change in the new config it doesn't work or work as expected.
Basically what I want to do is to change the "From: "email address for system user "Plesk Administrator" when sending the automated notification with subject "Parallels Panel Scheduler notification". Where would I do this?
I have a new dedicated server (my first one) with CentOS and Cpanel, and after a restart I can't access any web or ftp service... wasn't it supposed to autostart whith the system boot?
Another dumb problem I'd like to ask about: I've changed the ssh port for security puroposes, and now I can't acces ssh neither though the old port or he new one... could this be a firewall issue? How can I solve it now without ssh? :-/
