I have a rented VPS with 2TB of disk space and a plesk license in order to host the sites that i develop and my sites, and found myself with around 1.8TB of free space, plesk samba management and plesk vpn management but with few missing pieces for my idea. My idea was to setup vpn tunneling between my laptop and desktop to plesk server and access samba share from the server like they were in my LAN.In the firewall I have opened only the classic mail and web ports (obviously plesk access too).
We've got a Linux box running ProFTPd reaches a Windows box over SAMBA. This works very well but when the client has a great number of files, the FTP Windows-based FTP clients they use don't always give accurate directory listings (if any at all). I know there's some bug in the way SAMBA works with Windows File Sharing but I don't know what the magic file number is that, when reached, prevents a proper directory listing. Does anyone know what this magic number is or if there's an available, tested fix for this?
The scenario is like this I have Plesk + IIS + windows server and I want to store Plesk backups to a partition in linux server. So I have created a samba share and mounted it under the windows server. the issue showing is it is not possible to write to samba shared partition.
Samba accesses can be restricted to certain IP / ranges through the access tab in the Plesk Samba extension screen.This builds the /etc/samba/ smb. conf.include file with entered information.All well and good so far.
This file contains the standard 'do not modify...' text, so making manual changes directly here is undesirable. In Plesk are some Linux commands such as /usr/local/psa/bin/php_handler through which permitted changes can be made from the command line.
Is there a similar command included which would allow a shell script to make changes in a supported manner like the /usr/local/psa/bin/php_handler file does? any changes the script makes can be seen in the Plesk Panel and unless admin changes them through the panel will be persistent.
I have Windows Server storage server. However I need to run some Linux scripts. Is it possible to run possibly VMWARE to have Linux so I can install the scripts use the Windows which has content to be used.
Kinda tricky I know but worth a shot.
Windows - Has all the content , but can't run scripts such as file hosting , streaming server (WMV wont do) , HTML/PHP server scripts.
What is the best way to get backup from linux server to windows same as rsync
i need to take offside backup from my linux server to windows server,before i used rsync to take backup,now i need to make backup in windows server with help of any software which work same as rsync or any software which must have good feature.
I'm trying to replace my Linux OS with Windows Server 2003, which I already have a license.
I'm talking about OVH Kimsufi XL.
Following support's instructions, I booted my dedicated with netboot, specific with vkvm option.
Then I specified an ftp location, (where there is my "totally working" .iso), and I started the virtual session.
After some mins, a java windows appears, and starts the vnc session.
After usual linux loading, it stops on this :
Code: VFS: Cannot open root device "801" or unknown-block(8,1) Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions: 0300 244198584 hda driver: ide-gd 0301 5245191 hda1 0302 238428687 hda2 0303 522112 hda3
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,1)
i have a high end linux server, low load. i'm looking for ideas as to how i can get a windows 2003 machine hosted up onto it (i have a license already) on one of the machine's dedicated IPs, and set it up to host ASP based websites with MS access (have the license already too). Any tutorials or suggestions how this can be set up?
How do I run a virtual instance of Windows server 2008 on my Linux dedi? Do I need to partition the server and create a VPS for this or can I run it on something like VMware? (Please look at my other thread here [url]t=857377 to learn more about my server, its resources and current config.)
Why would I want to do this? Because my primary desktop OS is still Vista Ultimate 64 and I've invested a lot in Windows-based software and hardware--too much to make a total switch to Linux. But, I don't want to invest more than I have to in order to run a Windows server that allows my business partner to access documents remotely or for us to share various files securely and privately and still serve my mostly Windows-based clients and colleagues. I'm one of, well, two people I know who even use Linux (at least at the OS level and know it).
Since my research shows I **can** do this on Centos 5, the responses that would be most useful to me would be those that focus on how I can do this successfully (even if it seems complicate; I can figure it out with help and/or direction) and what to consider or avoid when creating this virtual guest OS on my Linux dedi.
