Running Out Of Bandwidth

Jan 19, 2008

I have a question that's been bugging me for a few months now (which has gotten worse as traffic increases). I run a site that gets some decent traffic (about 9-10M pageviews per month), and is mostly made up of HTML pages with a lot of images (some pages have about 200k of images, others have maybe 1.5-2MB of them). I have a dedicated server that has 2TB of bandwidth per month, and I'm quickly approaching the 2TB point... what should I do?

Normally, I'd buy more bandwidth... but the host I have charges $400/month for 10mbps unmetered bandwidth -- more than the cost of the server each month! What other options do I have?

Bandwidth Monitoring :: Create Bandwidth Charts Of Network Objects

Apr 3, 2009

I have a Sonicwall NSA 3500. Does anyone know if you can use it to create bandwidth charts of Network Objects (e.g. IPs or Groups of IPs)?

I am thinking something like Cacti, but I don't know the code to pull that info or if it's even technically possible.

Running Out Of My 512 MB Of RAM With VPS

Apr 14, 2008

I recently signed up for a VPS server with 512 MB of RAM. I will be hosting two sites on this VPS server. One is not online yet and I just have a Coming soon page up. The other is a Wordpress blog that is running. I don't have any users yet. But my VPS server is currently using ~410 or my 512 MB. This is with essentially nothing running yet. Does anyone else run their websites with only 512 MB or do I need to upgrade to at least 1 GB? I also checked out which processes are taking up the most
(% wise):

5.6 1 /usr/bin/spamd
5.4 2 spamd
3.8 1 /usr/bin/python
3.4 1 /usr/sbin/mysqld
1.7 1 /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd
1.7 1 cpsrvd
1.7 1 cpdavd
1.6 1 /usr/sbin/restorecond

I know I can't disable apache but what about the others? Spam Assasin is disabled in the WHM but the process restarts even after I kill it. Is Python necessary? I am using php apps..

Can't Get PHP 5 Running With IIS

Jul 20, 2007

let alone with mysql. Have tried to install those both and have tried endless variations of php settings adn moving php.ini around and checked PATH in IIS adn teh extension .php is enabled.

Should php.ini be copied to Windows or Windows/system32 directory?

I have a test.php file in my virtual directory. I did have it working at one time but then I installed the extensions so I could have teh mysql extension and it hasn't worked since.

I am just a newbie trying to create a testing environment so I can teach myself PHP. I have endless books, have tried the Yanks method but I am not sure it applies to PHP5.

I have PHP at c:/program files/php/ is this a problem? Shoud it just be directly in the c directory? Does that matter?

note my linux vps already has kde with vnc running so i have a graphical interface to my linux vps at home.

Running Sshfs On A VPS

Apr 15, 2009

I'm trying to run sshfs on my VPS but it seems to require the fuse module compiled on kernel. I already asked my host but they said that they won't change the kernel.

Running A DNS Server

Jan 17, 2008

I currently have one dedicated server and four VPSs all using Plesk and all having their own name servers controlled by Plesk. What I'd like to do is consolidate everything so all my sites use one set of name servers.

I'm a PHP developer (and will be developing my own front end), and only have limited knowledge of administrating a server, so first of all if anyone has done this before and made mistakes in the process, please could you share them with me so I can avoid making them?

Secondly, I would like to use a MySQL database for storing the DNS info - I've found a tutorial at [url]which I'd like to use - could someone who knows what they're talking about have a skim through this and reassure me that everything there is correct and up to date (the article was written in early 2006 - just checking nothing in the world of DNS has changed since)?

I'm using Fedora.

Couriertcpd Is Not Running

Jun 20, 2008

We have an OpenVZ VPS, And we have a problem with courier there.

The issue is that when we reboot the VPS, then we see the following error when trying to restart IMAP:

imap has failed, please contact the sysadmin (result was "couriertcpd is not running").

But if we use the following cPanel script, that get resolved until we reboot it (the vps) again:


* We have converted to maildir in the past, but should use that script and choose "3" option to get the issue resolved temporarily.

* I try to start courier with /scripts/courierup --force but that doesnt fix the issue.

* There is some other issues on that VPS which may be related to this one:

- We cannot modify the date on that VPS, I dont know why, It doesnt change ever.

- The results of mkpasswd root command is the same everytime we use it.

Operating System: CentOS 4.6

Control Panel: cPanel 11.23.2

Node Platform: OpenVZ

Running Web Server

Aug 13, 2008

I want to start up my web server again. I have Windows XP hosting my web server right now. and, it's slow.
Should i stick with Windows, run IIS and use httpZip from Port80?
I really like microsoft, and don't want to change and adapt to something else.
give me advice

Or, should I run Linux
I would run Linux on it, but I don't know how.
And they have different version of Linux. Example Redhat, Ubuntu etc.
Which one should I go for?

Also, what do I do if I have a netgear ethernet card? Is that Linux? Is it compaitable with Redhat?

And last question, what do I use for security?
I'm a hacker, yeah.. I know what all people can do to websites. How do I stop them?
DoSing, Cross Scripting, XML Attacks, MySql Injection.. Etc.

If a linux fan can respond, that would be nice.

Running Zend On IIS 6.0

Aug 20, 2008

I'm not sure if this is the best board for this question but I'll try anyway. We recently had an app built and the developer built it using the Zend framework.

Our server is running IIS. Does anyone have a link to information or know any tricks in getting Zend build apps to work on IIS?

We need to stick to IIS because other apps we have were built in asp so switching to apache is not an option.

Running A Vpn Service

Dec 10, 2008

I am thinking of running a vpn service for a limited number of my clients, so that they can surf the web securely and anonymously through our VPS (routing all traffics through a vps). However I have no idea what features should I looking for, I mean how much BW or ram does it need.

Lets say I have 10~20 clients at all, Is a VPS with 300G monthly BW and 256(or 512)M of ram enough to have it work smoothly?

Only 1 Mysql And 1 Running In Top

Aug 10, 2007

I just got a new server and updated the OS etc. Since I am use to seeing the old top information I have questions about the new top data. Some of the differances

1. Many less processes (or task as it is now called) then before.

2. Mysql is only shown once with a long time value. Before I had serveral mysql task and time was short

3. In most cases I have only 1 process running but in the onld system it jumped around from 4 to 10

4. The HTTP task below shows a long time and I see very few. Before had at least 10 shown and the time was very short.

Any ideas if maybe I have a setting wrong that is allows less theads or processes to be created?

VPS Running Out Of Memory

May 29, 2007

My hosting company is telling me my VPS is running out of memory. Lets look at the stats of the site and the server.

384 megs of ramm
1 gig burst ramm
20 gig hard drive
My total traffic for last month was about 7 gigs.

Vbulletin 3.6.5 with a few mods
database is about 16 megs
99 members
The most ever online was 20

Yesterday my site started showing a database error page, instead of the website index page. The stats at the bottom of the page showed only 7 people on the site at the time. When I contacted my hosting provider, they told me I was maxing out my memory and burst ram.

So how can a website this small max out the given ram? This is really starting to TICK me off. I have left two hosting companies because of poor performance, why cant things just work right? How is my community supposed to grow if my users keep getting a database error instead of the web page?
