Script To Limit File Size On Video Share Server

May 29, 2008

We have found that we need to limit the amount of cpu uage by users on our video share server. On this server we currently have 20 users on a sharred plan. Thought that the obvious BW usage would be the biggest challenge, as it turns out we havent gone over the 2 TB that we have.

We have come up with an encoding process that uses the 264 codec and gives us excellent results in terms of quality but is very cpu intensive to the point of really slowing down the server when 10 or more users simutaneously are encoding their videos.

Can someone suggest a script that would allows us to limit the file size in terms of MB/GB that each user could upload per month.

So for example a client pays 10.00 per month and we wanted to limit their uploads to a total of 900 MB per month vs the client that is paying 50.00 per month who would have the ability to upload say 8 GB per month.

Cento 5
Dual Quad Core 2.0 ghz
6Mb Ram
2 TB of BW

Server For A Video/file Sharing Website

Mar 10, 2008

I have no intention of trying to make some video/file sharing website.

Some people might recognize me as being somewhat cynical in my replies to the people who post these sorts of messages.

What I'm curious about is, after having occasionally told people "You'll make significantly more money throwing the money you intend to waste on this project into a traditional investment..." I still see new people every week asking for the same help.

Now, I understand very few people are going to give up their dream and just throw in the towel because some random guy says their dream is stupid, they are stupid, and may god have mercy on their soul...

But, I don't (always) necessarily try to dissuade people from starting this sort of project simply to be a prick.

What I'd like to find out is if there are any people out there who've created a successful video/file sharing website who'd like to help others out...

Like, what advice they would have for people who want to get into starting a similar site.

How much bandwidth does your site use?

What's the URL?

How are you making money from the site?

How long did it take for your site to make a profit?
etc etc...

Alternatively, if you've tried to start a video/file sharing website and given up on those plans...

Why did you end up giving up?

What problems did you run into?

DDOS Deflate On A Static Video File Server

Mar 6, 2008

I am using DDOS Deflate


I have a problem with NO_OF_CONNECTIONS.
The default is 150

For example, if a website has 200 thumbnails in one page, then the user will get banned.
But in my case, each time a user have only 1 connection(He only access 1 flv file each time).

So, is that safe for me to decrease the number to 20.

I can see a lot of IP having more than 80 connections, which I think they are ddos attack.

Plesk 12.x / Windows :: Invalid File Size Displayed In Backup Manager Server Repository

Nov 11, 2014

First of all I checked via command line if any software is not installed properly while plesk installation was done on destination server (windows server 2012 R2). All looks fine, please check attached file pleskinstallation.txt

Source plesk version 10.4.4 (windows server 2008)
Destination plesk version 12.0.18 MU#23 built.

We are in testing mode of migrating websites hosted with source plesk version 10.4.4 onto destination server plesk server 12.0.18 having (windows server 2012 R2).

What we did, we restored the backup of Source plesk version 10.4.4 (windows server 2008) to Destination plesk version 12.0.18 MU#23 built.

Now the problem is that backup which we restored on Destination plesk version 12.0.18 MU#23 was of 68 GB and now when we setup the backup on Destination plesk version 12.0.18 MU#23 and when backup completes successfully it show us wrong backup size up to 16 GB.

We have requested several times to plesk support has to check the entire new plesk version in terms of all feature (like taking backup, restoring, plesk installation etc) while releasing new version, If they have noticed bug than plesk support should not release new version or micro update until they are sure.

I would request them again to check backup size bug along with other bugs.

1. "Stats crashing and not updating stats"

2. installing "Spam assassin" on Plesk 12.0.18 on windows server 2012 r2 and we are getting error:

Error: Unable to set Plesk SpamAssassin 3.3.2 as the default Spam Filter: defpackagemng failed: Execute spammng.exe --check failed with error code 1: Unable generate the unique file name by template D:Program Files (x86)[*].bak: directory D:Program Files (x86)ParallelsPleskAdditionalPerlsiteetcmailspamassassin does not exist.

Setting Up A File Share In A VPS

Jan 9, 2009

I'm sure you all may have heard this question before, so I'm sorry if I'm beating a dead horse...just can't seem to find a good answer. I am interested in setting up a fileserver / fileshare on a VPS so that I can create a mapped drive on a windows PC which points to the fileshare on the VPS. I have a client who currently uses a physical server to perform this task, however this physical server is under-utilized and somewhat unnecessary. I mentioned the possibility of moving to a VPS and he seemed interested.
I decided to purchase an entry-level account from VPSLAND to use for testing purposes prior to moving forward with the project. I can't seem to get anything to work so I'm looking for ideas.

I purchased a VPSLAND Windows-based EZ-series VPS with Plesk and all the other bundled goodies.

Windows - Realtime File Share Replication

Sep 11, 2009

I'm trying to find a low cost solution for realtime file share replication in a windows environment.

It doesn't look like there are any open source windows cluster filesystems around, so the only viable option I found would be running OpenFiler in a replication cluster on Hyper-V nodes. Has anyone worked with this, does it work reliably?

The required IO throughput on these shares would really be minimal and my biggest concern is 100% availability.

Apache :: CIFS File Share To Store Images

Mar 28, 2014

I recently started building out a new network rack to provide a production web site. The new equipment stack includes a disk array providing a CIFS file share to store images to be served up by Apache.

I have had zero luck in getting Apache to properly access the imagestore from the network share. I've read more Google pages on this subject today than I can count, but I am still not having any success getting this working right.

I'll do my best to explain the configuration.

I have an ESXi host running several virtual machines. Each machine needs to be able to access the shares. Each host has multiple network interfaces, each connected to a separate subnet. The virtual machines are running Windows Server 2012 Datacenter edition.

The disk array is file mode access, with NFS and CIFS shares. It has interfaces on both subnets that each VM can reach. I have established a stand alone CIFS server, with the shares configured. They are accessible from the VMs.

I have mapped the share to a drive letter on the VM client, and it works properly from the logged in account. I have full control over files on the file system (create, modify, delete).

The VM has Apache 2.4.9 installed.

Things I've tried with no success:

-created a symlink to the CIFS mounted drive into the webroot directory
-added an alias to the CIFS mounted drive
-added the aliased directory using the <Directory> directive
-added the alias and directory directives using UNC references

I am seeing errors like "path is invalid" mostly, but when I try to add the mapped drive (f or the UNC referenced directory, the Apache service won't start.

I added a separate user for the Apache service, and added it to the group that has privileges to talk to the share, still didn't work.

Share A Good Transnational Software For Large File Transfer

Jun 10, 2008

Knowing Qoodaa was quite by chance.

A few days ago, my friends studying in America recommended me a new popular transfer tool—Qoodaa. And he told me that it was a quite good software to download files and movies. At first,I was skeptical, but after using it, I found it’s a good choice to choose Qoodaa. And I have summarized the some features of Qoodaa:

1.Its speed is faster than any other softwares I used before to upload movies.

2.It can download files quickly through downloading links, in a word, it is time-saver and with high efficiency.

3.No limit of space.No matter where you are, it can download fast.

4. Qoodaa is a green software with high security and easy use.

It really can give you unexpected surprise.

I am a person who would like to share with others, and if you have sth good pls share with me

Htaccess File Size

Oct 25, 2009

I manage a high traffic website on one of my dedicated servers. It currently serves around 2 million uniques/mo.

In time, due to page changes, around 200 important URIs got a redirect [L,R=301] in the main .htaccess file that's sitting on the root directory.

Redirects are in the form of : person/J/James_Blake_2000/ --> /user/James_Blake/

Thus, the .htaccess file has reached well above 200 lines.

I would like to kindly ask for advice: should I limit the dimension of this htaccess file ?

How do you guys treat these permanent redirects?

File Size (content Length) Not Showing When Downloading Files

Jun 30, 2009

When I download a file from my server, only specific extensions are working. This is really annoying since I want to be able to see how much time left to finish a download.

For example I uploaded a video with .vob extension
file.vob --> does not show filesize when downloading

If I rename the same file to different extension:
file.avi --> works fine shows filesize when downloading
file.mp3 --> works fine shows filesize when downloading
file.rar --> works fine shows filesize when downloading
file.mp4 --> does not show filesize when downloading
file.wmv --> does not show filesize when downloading

These are direct download links, not using any download scripts or anything. Why are some extensions displaying the filesize and some not displaying them? I am using Apache 2.x server.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Log Rotation For Particular Domain - Restrict File Size?

Feb 12, 2015

For a particular domain I've got it set to:

Log rotation condition: By size (1024 KB)
Maximum number of log files: 5
Compress log files: Yes

...however the access_log.processed is at 20.4MB. Is this correct? I would have thought it could only get to 5MB in total?

How do I restrict the size of access_log.processed?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Can't Increase Phpmyadmin Max Upload / Import File Size

Jan 2, 2015

I'm running Plesk 12. I install it today, using the ISO which parallels provides, which includes centos 6.5 and preinstalled Plesk 12 in my vps. Then I logged in plesk, and I did everything it wants. Then I upgraded my php, to php 5.4.36 according to the manual that Paralells provides, and then I tried to increase the max upload file size for phpmyadmin. I have edited my /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/php.ini file and tried to restart using with 3 different ways using terminal:

1st: service sw-cp-server restart
2st: /etc/init.d/psa stop
/etc/init.d/psa start
3st: reboot (which rebooted all the vps)

My php.ini file is:

short_open_tag = On
y2k_compliance = Off
output_buffering = Off
max_execution_time = 600
max_input_time = 600
memory_limit = 256M
max_file_uploads = 99999
max_input_vars = 2000

[Code] ....

However, when I'm trying to import a 31mb sql file, I always get that error, and only some of my tables are being imported:

#1153 - Got a packet bigger than 'max_allowed_packet' bytes

For File And Video Sharing : Dedicated Or Joyent / Amazon S3

Apr 28, 2008

I'm building a kind of a file sharing site also with video conversions ( convert a full DVD to flash and stream) and if i can find more ideas, even more features. It won't be free (i'm not sure which way to go though, subscription-based or pay per bandwidth + storage) and it will support download managers. I'm not sure which way to go : Joyent or dedicated servers with RAIDs. If i distribute files over servers, and a users wants the files to be converted to flv etc., it will increase the server load, ( and if i put a lot of users in 1 server it will increase the load even more) so it won't be very good.

So i thought SAN for this, but couldn't find any hosts serving it ( especially for a reasonable price ). Joyent is close enough (Amazon S3 is very very expensive), but although bandwidth and storage prices seem good, server power is low ( and very expensive if higher ) Which way should i go?
