Manually Enabling SpamAssassin

Mar 2, 2008

I have a dedicated server. It is a Fedora Core 6. It came with "Plesk 30 domain license". However, this license of Plesk doesn't have SpamAssassin enabled. In order to get the license with SpamAssassin, it costs an extra $30 a month.

I believe SpamAssassin by default is in fact installed on the sever, but some of my users are reporting that they are getting Spam. How can I check is SpamAssassin is running? How do I configure SpamAssassin to filter spam on all the e-mail addresses that are created in Plesk?

I have SSH access to the server.

SpamAssassin - Deleting Files From /home/user/.spamassassin

Jun 25, 2009

I need to clean up the .spamassassin directory for all the accounts on the server. The Bayes files are getting too big and causing mail handling issues.

How would I do that?

I assume this won't work - and don't want to try it until I hear a little feedback:

rm -f /home/*/.spamassassin/*bayes*

Basically, I need a command that will do what the above command looks like it would do - I just don't think the wildcards will work in that manner, and don't want to try it for fear of deleting items outside of the .spamassassin directory.

I'm running CentOS 5.3.x with cPanel/WHM - if it matters...

And feel free to suggest other spam blocking software - but we've gotten rather good at tweaking SA to get the job done. Just this annoyance of the bayes files growing continuously is a pain sometimes...

Installing CentOS Manually

Jul 8, 2008

how to install CentOS by not using the installer. This guide should be great when installing over networks, don't have a graphical console available (for installing over serial), when you're not content with the installer's job, installing CentOS from another distro, or plainly want to learn more about how CentOS works.

* Have a host OS that has the "rpm" package manager available. Some distributions have it in their repositories (even if the package manager for the distro itself is not rpm), and knoppix (a linux live/rescue CD) has it aboard too. You can use the first CentOS ISO CD too (use linux rescue at boot), and it has all the necessairy packages aboard
* Access to the CentOS base repository. It's on the first CentOS ISO CD
* Use your BRAIN. This guide is ment to be interpreted, not copy/pasted

# First, setup your disks to your liking. You can use whatever you want here,
# RAID, LVM, etc... Remember your disk configuration because you'll need it
# to configure grub, menu.lst and fstab. Using RAID, LVM, or others will require
# more configuration than this guide covers. To keep it simple I'm using a
# single disk. An example:

$ fdisk /dev/sda
$ mount /dev/sda3 /target
$ mkdir /target/boot
$ mount /dev/sda1 /target/boot

# Depending on the host OS you're using, you may need to initialize the rpm db
# on the host OS
$ rpm --initdb

# Use the following command to install the packages. I'll be addressing this
# command as $rpm.

$ rpm --root /target -i

# Use your shell's tab completion to complete the package filenames. I
# deliberatly left out the versions so these instructions apply to a wide range
# of versions

# Let's install some basics
$rpm setup basesystem filesystem

# Install bash first, this is needed for post-install scripts
$rpm bash glibc glibc-common termcap libgcc tzdata mktemp libtermcap

# Install some dependencies (this is mainly to keep the next command smaller)
$rpm grep pcre libstdc++ info ncurses zlib gawk sed ethtool

# Install the bulk of the system
$rpm coreutils libselinux libacl libattr pam audit-libs cracklib-dicts
cracklib libsepol mcstrans libcap chkconfig python db4 openssl readline
bzip2-libs gdbm findutils krb5-libs initscripts util-linux popt udev MAKEDEV
centos-release shadow-utils keyutils-libs iproute sysfsutils SysVinit
net-tools module-init-tools e2fsprogs e2fsprogs-libs glib2 mingetty
device-mapper sysklogd psmisc centos-release-notes procps libsysfs iputils

# Install package manager
$rpm rpm beecrypt elfutils-libelf rpm-libs sqlite

# Install YUM
$rpm yum python-elementtree rpm-python yum-metadata-parser python-sqlite
expat libxml2 python-urlgrabber m2crypto python-iniparse

# You may also want to install your favorite editor
$rpm nano

# This provides /root with some defaults, like color highlighting on `ls`
$rpm rootfiles

# Right now you have system which you can chroot to, so we can start setting up
# the basics

# Mount directories for chroot operation
$ mount --bind /dev /target/dev
$ mount -t proc none /target/proc
$ mount -t sysfs none /target/sysfs
$ chroot /target

# This constructs /etc/shadow
$ pwconv

# Configure fstab
$ nano -w /etc/fstab

# Installing the kernel. Do this back outside the chroot in the host OS system
$ exit
$rpm kernel mkinitrd cpio device-mapper-multipath dmraid gzip kpartx lvm2 nash
tar less device-mapper-event

# Install the bootloader, grub.
$rpm grub diffutils redhat-logos

# Let's chroot again to configure our bootloader
$ chroot /target

# We start by configuring the bootloader. Open /boot/grub/menu.lst, and put the
# following there

timeout 5
default 0

# (0) CentOS
title CentOS
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.el5 root=/dev/sda3 ro
initrd /initrd-2.6.18-92.el5.img

# If this command gives an error, you can safely ignore this because it's not
# of importance. What is important is that grub-install copied the right files
# to /boot/grub that we need for booting.
$ /sbin/grub-install /dev/sda

# Manually install grub if the previous step failed. - means type it in the grub
# shell
$ grub
$- root (hd0,0)
$- setup (hd0)

# Optional packages
# You may want to install passwd so you can set passwords ;-)
$rpm passwd libuser openldap cyrus-sasl-lib

# These are used to set the keyboard language (loadkeys)
$rpm kbd usermode

# ** Right now you should have a bootable system! Here are some tips to help you
# through your 1st boot ***

# Most of the system configuration happens in /etc/sysconfig. See


for full documentation.

Some quick post-install tips:
* Configure your keyboard in
using the KEYTABLE variable

* Configure networking
Take a look at /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. See ifcfg-lo for an example.

# This recreates the RPM database. If the host OS you used has a different
# version of db, rpm will complain with
# rpmdb: unable to lock mutex: Invalid argument
$ rpmdb --rebuilddb

Manually Force DNS Change

Jul 24, 2007

we're using a subdomain to point to one of our server's IP. (gaming purposes).

And people use this subdomain to connect to the game server.
However, We are going to move to a new server soon with a different IP.

I know, only thing I have to do is change the IP of the subdomain to point to the new server, however I know this will take like 1 to 48 hours to fully work.

Is there a way to force people who's still connecting to the OLD Ip to go to the new IP?

CPanel's EasyApache 3 - Are You Using It? (Or Still Doing Things Manually?)

Feb 17, 2008

How many of you cpanel folks are using the new cpanel 11 "EasyApache 3" to manage apache/php on your servers? (Instead of doing things manually?)

We have always managed our apache and php configs manually, because cpanel was "under-powered" for the task.

However, with this new EasyApache 3 that is included with cpanel 11, it seems cpanel might finally have figured things out.

How many of you have switched over from doing things yourself manually to using EasyApache to manage your PHP config?

Can Cookie's Be Set Manually To Bypass Security

Aug 24, 2007

I have put an Access database inside an access_db folder on Godaddy and written some .asp pages that query it. I am trying to make sure that I take necessary precautions against hackers reading or even writing to the database. Maybe someone can give some remarks about whether any of these concerns are realistic, and if so, why and what I could do about it?

1) Could someone somehow navigate directly to the database and read or write to it (the access_db folder seems to have no read/write permissions as set by default by Godaddy, but how secure is that?)

2) I permit entry through use of a a userid and password that are looked up in an mdb in the same folder (not listed in the html itself). If there’s a match, I store the userid as a session cookie. Then, to visit any other pages, each page first checks to see if the cookie is empty before proceeding. Is it possible for someone to set the cookie themselves and thus break through (can a cookie be set manually?) If so, would it help if I mandated that the cookie be set to something specific (right now it just has to be non-blank) or can they find out what the cookie should be set to as well?

Call Script That Deletes Logs After Stats Run Manually

Jan 15, 2008

I'm trying to create a script to archive logs for 7 days but still delete them from the domlogs daily. Has someone already done this? The ideal solution would be to modify the CPanel script that deletes them after stats run but I'm not sure if thats protected code by CPanel. The other option would be to disable the delete logs after stats run option and to create a script to copy the logs somewhere else via cron and call the script that CPanel uses to delete the logs without restarting apache. This script would also move the files through directories and eventually delete them, therfore preserving the logs for 7 days. Any ideas?

I have created an untested script which should do this but I just need to know how CPanel deletes the logs without restarting apache.


mkdir /domlogbackup/
mkdir /domlogbackup/1/
mkdir /domlogbackup/2/
mkdir /domlogbackup/3/
mkdir /domlogbackup/4/
mkdir /domlogbackup/5/
mkdir /domlogbackup/6/
mkdir /domlogbackup/7/
mkdir /domlogbackup/8/
sleep 1

rm -rf /domlogbackup/8/*

Plesk 11.x / Windows :: Large Number Of Domains - Change Vhost Manually

Jul 9, 2014

I have somewhere at 2000 domains.

I need to change path to vhost from W:host to D:vhost

I copied all files from W to D drive and created symbollinks. Now all files stored in D:vhost and symbollincs pointing to W:vhost.

If I will use reconfigurator, will it recopy existing files or just will skip them? Because I have millions files in my vhost dir

Also i thought about change drive letter in windows OS. It wil be enough to just stop IIS service and plesk services for switching disk letter?

Can i just some how say plesk that he should search all vhost files in D:vhost? With out process of copying files,becouse thay already exist there are.

Enabling SMS On A Website

Jun 13, 2008

My client wants to send SMS from his new website that we are making. How can I enable this feature ...? What's the easiest way?

(The reason I'm posting this question in this forum is that I'm just guessing that this has something to do with web hosting. But, admin, if I'm wrong about this, please move this to a different forum.)

I read that Clickatell is a good service to use to provide this service on our website. Did anyone here use this service before? If so, what did you think about it? Is it easy to set up?

I would really like to install/enable WebDAV so that I can mount some of the server storage as a drive on my computer for easy file manipulation from desktop, laptop, gf's house, etc. without having to carry the files around with me all the time.

How would I go about configuring WebDAV?
