Search Engines And Pinging

Apr 15, 2008

I have a hardware firewall on my server that does not allow pinging or trace routes from anyone outside the vpn.

So, pinging my server or a website on it will return a "request time out" for each try even though the websites come up fine and connectivity is fine.

I'm told this is for enhanced security but it's also my understanding that search engines and some programs will ping a site before attempting to crawl it or index a page on it. I guess this saves time and bandwidth for the search engine bot.

Is this true? and is there a security risk for opening my firewall to allow pinging?

Shared Hosting And Search Engines

Apr 29, 2008

I have heard that using shared hosting accounts is risky for search engine rankings because if one site on the server breaks the rules then the whole server can be penalized. Is there a cheap type of hosting package that provides the same functionality and does not share the same IP with hundreds of other sites?

Search Engines Continue To Pickup Domain Used For Forwarding

Jan 10, 2008

We have a bunch of domains we use to forward into various locations on our site, so for instance: [url] would forward to [url].

I am currently running a Windows 2k3 Server with IIS6. The way I achieve these forwards is to set up another site, put the forwarding domain in the host header, then have it forward out to my desired directory. However, now Google has been picking up my forwarding domains with their robots, and getting addresses like [url],
which does not exist, just [url]does, so people are getting returned a lot of 404 errors.

How can I stop this? Am I setting up the domain forwarding wrong?

Change Host, Change Domain And Getting Search Engines Up To Speed

Feb 5, 2008

Has anyone helped clients transition from one domain to another? Maybe dissolving a partnership or renaming their company... so a new domain name has been registered and a new website created.

2 Issues:

#1 Using .htaccess 301 redirect
We used the following command line in their old website's htaccess file

Redirect 301 / [url]

The goal was to get people try to visit any page of their old website (i.e. redirected to their new website (i.e. Isn't that supposed to change the address bar's URL, too? For some reason, I visit their old site and I seem to be redirected to their new website but the address bar still has their old domain name? Something is going on???

#2 Having their new company name for 2 years now. People can enter her new company name in Google, MSN or Yahoo. Her new company name appears in the search results but has the old domain name associated with it. We are trying to get rid of any reference to that old domain name? What's the easiest way to do this? So what people see in search engines is:

New Company
Short Meta Description

What steps did I miss in this transition?

What steps do I have to take on their old website/old web server to control it's appearance on search engines and make sure people get to the new website?

Search Mail

Jun 7, 2009

We have a mail account that has over 12,000 emails in it, when we try to search it will either bring back no results or time out. My question is how can i search for an email in the account or is there anything i can install on my Linux - CENTOS 5.3 i686- cPanel 11.24.4-S36281 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9 server?

I will need to search the subject or body of the emails and need it to return results back to me when it has anything matching what i want it to search for. We have tried using the email clients that cPanel provides but like i said they either bring no results or show an error. What can we use or install to do what we need? I have full shell access if theres a way of doing it through that.

New Host Search

Oct 22, 2007

I'm sure you hear this often, but I'm on the search for a new hosting company. Earlier this year my products site switched to a db driven website with a forum. When I made the site change I had to change my hosting company I had for 3 years. Under suggestion for the webmaster I switched to midphase. When I did things started out good. Than came the down time. Each time they said I had to may users on the db. I started out at $10 a month. After several plan upgrades I'm at a $80 a month vps. I would be ok with the $80, but more times than not the site is sluggish even when the resources are not 1/3 of their capacities. After reading some of the threads on this site it seems a vps is not that good? The idea behind the vps sounded good to me. But I'm wondering if I should go back to a shared host. On a good day there may be about 30 people on the forum and about 30 people surfing the products.

How To Search If An IP Is Blacklisted In My Server

Apr 10, 2009

I'm having a problem with a client (X) which doesn't receive emails from one of his clients(Y). After few days of talking with Y hosting company I wasn't able to solve the broblem, but told from them to check if their IP is blocked in my server (which I'm sure it isn't).

My first question is where to check for blacklisted IP which blocks email, and not HTTP request ...

Is there a different place than /etc/apf/deny_hosts.rules .. is there a file in exim configuration ?

I have a linux server with WHM 11.24.2.


The error that Y client receives when sending mail to X is:

Server Response: '550 5.0.0 <>... User unknown', Port:
25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79

I'm very sure that if Y's IP was blocked he shouldn't receive that error.

What I belive is that there are some DNS problems, because X client was hosted on the same company as Y, now few years ago, and I belive that when moving X to my server, the other hosting company didn't deleted all DNS records .. and that's why Y clients get the error user unknown. Is it correct what I'm suppose ?

Is There A Way To Search Through MySQL Databases

Mar 9, 2007

I am running a dedicated server with Debian, and I installed a community sofware that has a lot of mySQL entries, many of which need to be changed to fit my needs

However, it is very hard to know exactly where each value I need to change is stored. Is there a way to search all database tables for a specific value?

For example, one thing that is stored in the database is the site's title displayed in the browser's title bar. The sofware does not give me the option to change it, so I have to find where it is located in the database and change it myself, but it would be extremely time comsuming to check all tables one by one for any occurences of the current title.

How Many Resources For A Search Engine

Jan 8, 2007

I am thinking about creating my own search engine and I was wondering what some basic server hardware would be required to do this (e.g., RAM, hard drives, memory, storage space). Would I have to run a minimum of 1TB on storage and 4 to 6GB of ram to do it right?

Server Search - Mission Impossible

Oct 11, 2007

so about 2 months ago we started a search for a new hosting company who could provide us with our dedicated server needs after our last company let us down badly..

We looked at alot of options as cost per month was not our main concern.

Our criteria were as follows:

1) 24/7 technical support by PHONE (or at LEAST within UK business hours.)
2) Cpanel usage provided (Rather than some generic "bespoke" software)
3) Dedicated, fully managed, Linux Server availability
4) UK based

That was it.

It sounded simple on the face of it, but after tearing alot of hair out we came up slightly short of those four simple requirements. It almost seemed impossible to get everything we wanted.

In the end we chose UK2. They could provide everything except the support, which would be via a ticket system. BUT we were told by a few people who have used them in the past it was quick and very good, so we decided to take the gamble..

They ARE UK based, They DO use Cpanel AND provided the server we wanted (Linux) so that should be it we thought, not exactly what we wanted but close enough, search over?

How wrong we seem to have been..

After two months of issues with UK2 mostly revolving around our server (and therefore sites) going down randomly, Email servers NEVER working as they should. DNS not setup correctly and ftp accounts refusing connection due to server reboots and the settings not being input correctly at their end to reset after a reboot.. etc etc etc we have had to submit support tickets on a weekly basis and almost give up the dream of a server which will just... well, work!

(And at this point I would like to point out we DO pay for the full "Supreme Support" package on a monthly basis, effectively providing a fully managed server and support to go with it.)

So again, we find ourselves on the hunt for a company who can satisfy our rather basic and what I would imagine, standard requirements..

Only again we come up slightly short..

Can ANYONE here help prove that our goal is not impossible with the above requirements and shed light on any options which we should consider?

At this point, as we said earlier, monthly cost is not a concern. A reliable server which meets our criteria is most definately worth whatever it is going to cost..

At least we wont be loosing sales due to downtime, wasting time on tickets and missing emails!

Ways To Search For Dedicated Servers Meeting Your Needs?

Jul 5, 2008

I've often hunted for a dedicated server that needed to have certain criteria, and it's usually overwhelming comparing servers from different companies. For example, if I need 4GB, one may come with 4GB RAM, while another has 2GB standard with the option of getting another 2GB for a small extra fee.

Is there a site that lets you enter your criteria, and it will list servers that meet your needs? For example, you could have it list servers with at least 8GB of RAM, or servers with 500+GB hard drive and 1000GB transfer/month, etc.

Google's Entry-level Search Appliance

Google's mini search appliance:

hardware wise, it's just an out-dated supermicro's mini 1U setup (P8SCT in SC512L chassis, prescott 3G, 2G DDR2, 1x WD 250G) which can be easily upgraded to newer, greener configuration such as PDSMI+ or PDSBL-LN2 board with Conroe/Kentsfield CPU, 4G~8G RAM, even raptor 10k drive.

what do you guys think the market out there for this type of appliance? will updated hardware boots the performance by much?

In Search For Host With Latest PHP/mySQL Versions.

Jul 16, 2007

I'm desperately trying to find a hosting service that offers Linux hosting with latest versions of php (5.2.x), mySQL (5.1) and maybe CVS or SVN?

Space or bandwidth are not an issue (500mb space will be more than I'll ever need)

This will mainly will be a development/testing place.
I really need a host that actually updates to latest versions of php/mysql/apache.
(not the next day the upgrade is out but some time soon at least >_<)

Things like CVS / SVN, SSH access and access to change your own php.ini settings are more than welcome but I could live without.

'MySQL Client Ran Out Of Memory' On A FullText Search

Sep 10, 2007

I'm trying to do a FULLTEXT search (1 field) on a ~3 gig table with ~650,000 rows. A lot of queries work fine and give results in seconds, but for queries on words that (I believe) occur very commonly in the database (e.g., this is a Italian database, the word 'italia' probably occurs a lot) take a while and then give the following errror:

#2008 - MySQL client ran out of memory

But the server has 8 gigs of RAM (and plenty of free hard disk space). Server is Linux with MySQL 4.0.27.

Here's my /etc/my.cnf file:
set-variable = max_connections=1000

what I can do to make this work?
