Provisioning DNS Correctly

Jan 15, 2007

I was checking this tutorial and thank the lord I did this all correct before I saw this thanks to all of you here on WHT (you all rock!) but right at the end of the tutorial it talks about setting up PTR dns... what exactly are they for? And are they needed?


Also does anyone know how to check/configure the reverse DNS settings?

CPANEL Provisioning

Jul 6, 2007

I'm trying to find a solution to an issue. I run a server which has a custom apache configuration where each hosted site requires about 10 custom ENV variables. Currently I'm manually configuring them but I'm moving the product to market and need a solution which integrates with modern bill such as cPanel to handle the provisioning and set up of the new sites. They will need to be generated with the custom variables right out of the gate. I have been told by the people at our server location that this is not possible with cpanel - that it has a structure which it uses to config new sites and in reading the docs at cPanel's site I can't find any reference to this type of requirement so I am wondering if that is correct.

Is anyone aware if A) My server co-lo people are incorrect or B) If there is another app which intefaces with modern bill which allows a greater level of flexibilty when a new site is created? Ideally I would like to trigger a shell script which would also do some initial db settup - I'm thinking that this has got to be doable just unsure where to look.

How To Set The SPF Correctly Settings For My VPS

Jan 28, 2008

I am being rejected by Hotmail when sending mail from my VPS. I want to send mails from punbb and OSCommerce, with various website hosted on one VPS/Cpanel/LAMP solution. And with sendmail or SMTP, it'a always the same : passing almost every ISP except Hotmail/Gmail. I also always get this part in my email header regardless of which website i'm sending email from :

Received: from ([])
by with esmtpa (Exim 4.68)
So I think it's the part that makes me rejected. Because it's almost the only line in the email header that is different when I am using Outlook/Thunderbird to send mail. This ip (]) is mine and I never spammed or anything.

So i asked my host ro add rDNS. And I added this line to my DNS zone on my mail domain:

lockeradream TXT "v=spf1 mx a ptr ip4: ip4:"
I am really out of solutions! Can anyone tell me if the SPF record stated above is ok?

Suhosin Not Installing Correctly

Apr 26, 2008

I have just ran easyapache to update from 5.2.4 to 5.2.5 and selected suhosin.

I can see no evidence of it by viewing phpinfo scripts such as vbulletin's.

i should be able to see something like this yes?

and there is nothing new in php.ini other than:

Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
extension_dir = "/usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613"

Via SSH i get this

Server Not Rebooting Correctly

Apr 27, 2007

I've had this problem for a while. My HTTP will stop functioning, so I attempt to restart it via SSH. I restart it, yet it doesn't fix the problem. So I reboot the server via SSH. I wait 5-10 minutes and the server STILL isnt up. Can't login via SSH or anything.

So every time I have to tell my host to manually reboot the server. I've had apache recompiled multiple times, but I don't think that's the issue.

ODBC Connection Not Working Correctly

May 28, 2009

I had a small question about ODBC. I created a new connection to a MySQL database with the 'ODBC Data Source Administrator' on my Win 2008 / IIS 7 webserver.

In this administration panel the ODBC data source works just fine. When I fill in the required values I receive the list of available databases and pressing the "test" button results in a successful connection.

But when I want to use this connection in other software, a C++ application and a PHP application, they supply me with errors "Couldn't connect to database", etc.

So the ODBC connection is correct (so are the credentials in the software 100% sure of that), but software can't use the connection. Because the software worked perfectly on an older server I think I'm missing out on some sort of setting which enables applications to use the connection (or something like that).

PHP4 & PHP5 Not Working Correctly

Jun 7, 2008

I have suPHP installed in FastCGI mode. PHP5 is my default installation but I have it setup so that PHP4 can also run. At least that is my intention.

I have PHP5 working without a problem.

PHP4 is loading if I add the directinf x-httpd-php4 .php into my .htaccess file.

HOWEVER: PHP (via phpinfo) is trying to load the config file from /usr/local/etc/php5/cgi/php.ini when it should be from ....php4/cgi/php.ini

Where do I go to fix this? Or is there a second directive that I need to load in the .htaccess file?

Also... In either php5 or php4, if I put a php.ini file into a directory, it is suppose to load that one. However, it is not doing this either.

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: How To Partition SSD To HDD Correctly

Dec 6, 2014

I am running a CentOS 6.6 (Final) with Plesk 12.0.18 Update #27 on my dedicated server. I was advised to upgrade my server to one that has a SSD due to better performance. What they failed to tell me was that I would need to perform additional configurations so that Plesk stores the subscription files in the /HDD-var/ directory and NOT the /SDD-var/ directory. Current server

Here are my questions:

1. How difficult would it be (I am a quick learner and can follow exact steps or directions very well) to make Plesk store the files on the HDD rather than the SDD?
2. Is this something I should undertake or is this very difficult to do?
3. If I perform these changes, will they revert to the old way if I perform Plesk updates? Or will the changes I make become permanent?

SSH: df -h

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md1 4.0G 916M 3.1G 23% /
/dev/mapper/ssd-usr 3.9G 1.9G 1.8G 51% /usr
/dev/mapper/ssd-var 3.9G 3.7G 2.7M 100% /var (Plesk is storing data here)
/dev/mapper/ssd-home 3.9G 792M 2.9G 22% /home (Would also like this data to be on the HDD)

Howto Implement A Spam Appliance Correctly

May 14, 2009

We are planing to implement a spam appliance like the mailfoundry for our 60 cpanel servers.

What is the best and easiest way to replace the standard cpanel mx entry in the dns zonefiles with our two new MX entries?

Additionaly we need to enable the option "Always accept mail locally even if the primary mx does not point to this server." for all the dnszonefiles where we use the new MX entries.

The problem is, that some customers are using already own mx entries, therefore we can not change all of them, but only the entries which point to the cpanel server.

Does someone have a script for this, or how would you change this?

Non Standard And Excotic Letters Not Displayed Correctly

May 3, 2007

I just finished installing a new webserver :

debian 4 , 2.6.18-4-686 , PHP Version 4.4.4-8+etch2 , Apache 2.0

Everything is working fine, except that a lot of excotic letters and symbols on the site are not displayed correctly. Most of the special letters in Swedish, Russian or Polish are replaced by a '?' or a small square. It is a serverside problem, as the same texts are displayed correctly on another, older webserver.

I assume it has something to do with a character set or font that I need to install. But I don't know the exact name of this option, so searching on google doesnt give much relevant results.

Apache :: ReWrite Doesn't Work Correctly

Oct 2, 2013

Yesterday i was putting a website to manage in localhost but i had to abilitate the usage of mod_rewrite. when i'm in the index and i try to open links i have this message..The requested URL /c3click.php was not found on this server.Here are the steps that i followed:

1) Search for LoadModule ReWrite and decommenting
2) Search for Servername localhost

<Directory />
AllowOverride all
Require all granted

3) Search for C:/wamp/www

Options all

# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
AllowOverride all

# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
# Require all granted
# onlineoffline tag - don't remove
Order Deny,Allow
Allow from all
Allow from
Allow from ::1
Allow from localhost

4) Reboot the server

In the beginning of my .htaccess file there's written

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
Options -Multiviews

My configuration is Windows 7, Apache 2.4.4 on Wamp Server 64bit.

In the apache_error.log file i discovered this

[Wed Oct 02 10:33:47.582049 2013] [:error] [pid 2412:tid 1496] [client] script 'C:/wamp/www/c3click.php' not found or unable to stat, referer: http://localhost/Lavoro/C3click/01-10-2013_Sito/

HotLink Protection In CPanel.. Understanding The Wording Correctly

Jan 24, 2008

I am setting up the HotLinking access in cPanel for one of my accounts and don't understand the wording of this section.

It first has the list where you put in the domains that you want to allow hotlinking for.

Then below that it has an input that says, "Extensions to allow:". For this input, does that mean extensions to allow for EVERYONE, or just the domains listed in the section above?

You think they'd be clearer on that in the documentation, but they aren't. Help on this is greatly appreciated.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Firewall Not Generating Rules Correctly

Aug 17, 2014

I am using the plesk firewall and trying to set up SSH rule which only allows from my IP but deny from everywhere else. In previous versions this worked fine by adding an ip selecting Allow from selected sources, deny from others and the icon in the rules would be orange with the lines

allow incoming from
Deny incoming from all others

However this no longer works as the deny from all others is not appearing and is not being generated in the iptables by plesk.
