Multiple Server Accessing Files

Mar 28, 2009

I have one server right now and will be adding a second server in the next 4-5 months. In the meantime I've upgraded the coding in my community site to act as if there is already two servers. has all the php files, and a separate HD for mysql db only, [url] has all the user images and videos.

This problem I'm having right now is the permission to delete files from [url]via [url]

What I've Tried:

vsFTPd - it has a small footprint but its not reliable, needed to be restarted a few times while testing on the beta site.

usermod - this is messy, changing chmods, owners, grps... etc I tried all of that but still had problems getting the Mainsite to be part of the group without having to change all the chmods and grps.

NFS mount - haven't tried yet...

Does anyone run a multiple server site? My sites pretty big been around for 4yrs, and i've upgraded servers 3 times since then.

If i can't get this to work right my final option would be to continue to upgrade to a new server each year, everytime a bigger and faster server setup becomes available.

Current server Dual Xeon 5310 4gb, 3 x 146gb scsi/sas. The server is doing fine with this setup. But with the new site uprade and features it's going to top things out. I can keep throwing ram on the server and move mysql off site.

The site has little over 1mil users with about 60-70% of them being active daily...

Redoing A Website- Accessing Files

Sep 29, 2009

I am redoing a website that is currently being hosted by some shady company that is completely unreachable. I have the ftp server info and password, and I am trying to get on using FileZilla, however there must be something incorrect because it is not letting me access the site.

Is there anyway I can host this website using the same current domain, even though it is already being hosted by this other horrible company? The person I am doing the site for has been trying to contact the company for months to cancel hosting, but they are not responding.

For example, if the company was, and I have created a new site for them which I have on my own webserver, how do I access so that the website I made will now be at that domain?

Accessing Files Through Port #2082

Apr 25, 2009

Where should I put the files that I don't want them to use server's frontend (public) php.ini configuration instead of the backend copy located at /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/etc/php.ini?

In other words, I want to access the files through [url]

Apache :: Forbidden 403s When Accessing Files / Pages On Mounted Device

Nov 18, 2014

So I have a script running on my apache that catalogs pictures and clips. All the actual video files are located on a separate drive which is mounted in to a folder in my site. I've set apache as the owner and have the correct permissions on the mounted folder but I'm getting Forbidden errors accessing files even when on html file in the mounted folder.

I know it's a permissions issue at the disk or mounting level. The way I mount is by using this command:

mount -t ext4 /dev/sdc /var/www/html/media

How Do You Untar Multiple .tar.gz Files?

Feb 19, 2008

I am getting really frustrated in my attempts to automatically uncompress a bunch of .tar.gz files within a directory.

I was told to try tar -xvzf $i;from within the directory containing the tarred files, but all that returned was errors.

Even a google search hasn't turned up info that a newbie like me can understand.

Apache :: Multiple Readme Files?

Mar 7, 2014

I very much like the "readme.txt" that Apache appends to the directory listings. That is, when a browser GETs a directory, the text in that file is put underneath the list of files therein.

Auto-upload Updates/files To Multiple Accounts

Oct 29, 2009

We're managing a CMS script which we offer as a hosted solution / leased script. This means we have several accounts on our server, one pr. client/script user. They all run the same script software and occasionally we have to upgrade the script on these sites. Until now this is being done manually.

Connect with FTP -> upload new files -> Done.

This is very easy work but takes annoyingly much time due to FTP needing to set up connections, switching accounts, etc.. and if you have 100s or 1000s of accounts this know..

The question is now, how can this be done easier? I was hoping that it would be possible to do this automated somehow (we have root access to our server).

Accessing Our Server From Some Locations

Apr 20, 2009

Few months back we migrated to a new server (Layered tech Savvis to Databank)

All has been running smoothly, better than before the move.

Over the last week we have had reports from a few clients in various locations across australia and a few in the uk that they can not access the server.

The DNS is resolving correctly for them and traceroutes have not proven anything.

Layered tech have not been real helpful, eventually they put me onto their network department who ran a global test which came back as the server being accessible from everywhere.

The problem appears to be intermittent

Accessing MySQL Remotely

Jun 12, 2008

I'm wanting to access one of my MySQL db's on my VPS (WHM/cPanel).

Specifically, I want to connect to the db from Excel and pull down certain data live.

I've set up my IP address for remote access in cPanel.

I've done this before on my old shared hosting account, where the hostname for the db was [url]

But under WHM/cPanel, the only hostname used for MySQL is 'localhost', which doesn't work when trying to connect remotely.

Accessing A Red Hat Box Without The Root Login

Jan 23, 2008

We have an internal server running Red Hat 8 or 9 that was taken offline at least 18 months ago. The guy who set up the box is long gone. Unfortunately with him went the root password. It wasn't a big deal until we realized there is some code we do want to get off of that box now that may be useful in a future project. In particular the database structure for one project. Is there any way to get access to this data or is it just lost?

Accessing Shared Folders

Jul 1, 2008

I have server which all files and folders are stored on. Now there are a couple of folders which are only accessible by one machine at present and all the other machines when they access the folder it is displayed as empty. I have checked all permisions and all machines viewing of files settings are the same and folders accessible by all machines have the same settings as the couple which are only accessible from this one machine.

If I copy and paste the folder all machines then have access to the folder from although this would be a lengthy exercise for the full hard drive.

Accessing MySQL From Other Hosts

Jan 1, 2007

I have a mySQL db on Host A and I want to be able to access its data from Host A/B/C/D/E.


1. If I have your typical reseller account with WHM and CPanel, would I just use localhost for each site on Host A or would I only use localhost for the domain it is on? (Assume and is on the same reseller account, and the db phpmyadmin is at

2. For Host B/C/D/E, how would I let them have access to the mySQL db on Host A? Do I just add them to the Access Hosts section of the Database Manager section of CPanel? Would that involve putting each IP address in there or its nameserver or what? Would a wildcard be useful here?
