There is Server US. it's hostname is US.domain.com the ns pointing to it are ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com
There is Server UK. it's hostname is UK.domain.com the ns pointing to it are ns3.domain.com and ns4.domain.com
however, the UK.domain.com resolves simply because I added a dns zone on Server US, which points to the IP of UK. If server US goes down, UK.domain.com is unaccessible, so UK VPS is accessible only via IP.
How can I fix this issue and make the second server respond on that UK.domain.com URL without depending on the US server?
I can't seem to find if there is a way to specify what hostname is used for a service on a service node. For instance, if one creates a service node named web01, and makes it a DNS service node, is web01 what will be used when creating NS records in zone files, or is there a way to change that?
The ppademo.com site is offline (and was unlicensed again last week).
I got a new server from uk2, has whm but i just couldnt get the server to work, i changed hostname and made nameservers etc but couldnt get it to work i pointed ips to hostnames and everything no response, domain is www.uploadline.com ns1.uploadline.com and ns2.uploadline.com i havent used cpanel for 2 years now and i used to have alot of experience in it before these days i just stick to directadmin and other control panels.
I just need to ask a few questions and i need help too to get my server up and running as im losing alot of time and money here
i remembered when i changed hostname on whm i need to run this through ssh: /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt So i did, and this was the result:
login as: email@example.com's password: Last login: Sat Nov 1 01:39:07 2008 from proxy-sov.uk2.net root@server1 [~]# /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt Updating Internal cPanel Information........................................quer y failed: query timed out [cpkeyclt.pl]: No working dig found! Unable to establish connection. License server hostnames could not be resolve to IPs. Done .Done root@server1 [~]#
I tried searching for this, but haven't found the solution. I currently have a VPS I'm not using for anything else, so I thought it would make a good file server for sharing files between my home and office computers. Ideally, I'd like to do this via SMB/Samba so I could map a windows network drive to a directory on the VPS from both locations.
I've set up SAMBA and it works great via the VPS (ie. smbclient returns that it is sharing the directory, etc...). The problem is I can't get either of the remote machines to connect. I read about a way to do tunneling in PuTTY, which worked. In essence I created a Microsoft Loopback device on the remote machine and ran putty forwarding the samba share port. This worked perfectly, in that I could type "10.0.0.1" (the MS loopback interface) and access my VPS shares on my home machine. However, this isn't ideal, as you have to keep PuTTY running to be able to access the shared drive and you have to keep a live SSH session going.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how to cut out PuTTY from the mix and just be able to do "vps.hostname.comsharename" directly from both the home and office machine. I gather this would be trivial if my home machine and the VPS were on the same network. Would a VPN solution make sense here? Any good recommendations? I think a VPN connection would be much easier to setup and deal with than the SSH tunneling solution.
Searching on here revealed adding a line "hosts allow" with the remote IP into smb.conf; however, that did not work for me. It's still as if the remote machines cannot see the VPS through SMB.
I have a dedicated server with whm/cPanel centos 5, however I have an issue with retrieving files between 2 cpanel accounts.
One account is an ssl site [url]and the other cpanel account is [url] Now, the manager since it's on seperate account can't get the files and media stored locally on the other account due to account permissions.
Does anyone know how to hack whm/cpanel to give an account access to another folder in the home directory? I don't really want to give it full root access in case the account gets hacked.
Im doing an iphone app related to audio recording. I would like for the user to be able to share these recordings on twitter/facebook. Since you can't encode to mp3 (licensing issue i think), I'll have to do it server side, and then host those mp3s for some period of time (week or month).
I'm wondering if anyone can recommend an inexpensive hosting solution I should look at. Most of the cheaper hosting plans I see would probably consider this as file sharing and not allow it in their TOS.
I thought I would be able to use google appengine, and pay only for whats used... but since it doesn't do direct disk access I don't think there's a way for me to convert to mp3 with them.
It would be private, accessed by about 40-200 students from my faculty. We would share scanned documents and Powerpoint slides that we receive from professors, as well as the latest news such as changes of lecture times etc.
Optimal would be something like Google Groups, but with larger storage (5 GB min). I am therefore considering running ubuntu LAMP on a basic Linode.
what software can i run that provides my group with a Google-groups-like web interface? RSS capability is a plus, so is an easy setup.
Is there a windows program that will let me share two connections? For example, I have a dsl line and a wireless broadband. I want to combine these on the windows box so that if one goes down, it doesn't affect the network. I know there is hardware that will pool wan connections but I was thinking in terms of windows software that can do this without intervention.
First things first, we haven't even figured out if we're going to use clipshare, clipbucket or phpmotion for this project. We're going to build a video sharing site where people can share their videos or post direct links to youtube clips etc. Any other ideas or script recommendations are gladly accepted
Now, the hardware part. VPS's at dreamhost cost $15 a month which sounds nice, but how reliable are they? Based on my readings here at WHT, dreamhost and seperate mysql/site servers don't work too well over there. I'll happily pay more if I know what I'm getting is reliable and 100% functional without a lot of uptime problems and server issues.
I have a Hostgator account but they don't support video sites on shared/reseller so we'd have to go dedicated with them. I don't see the point in going dedicated when the site isn't even launched.
So, I guess a VPS it is unless anyone else has another suggestion. Who can tell me about the "big" hosts in the game with the most reliable VPS solutions?
I am in the beginning stages a new video sharing site (intend to use Clip Share) which will pertain to sports. I have reserved the domain name, filed a trademark application for the name, have the ideas for what I wish to accomplish BUT need help with the design of the site, setup, the administration, hosting, etc, etc....
I will need necessary server, bandwidth, management of site and server and speed with the ability to handle potential high traffic. I HAVE RECEIVED INFORMATION FROM Timihosting.com and Infrenion.com.
i have a forum site which is running on a vps 45gb space and 2000gb put i would like to offer my members a means to upload images small files max 5-10mb just with in the site but i would like to use a totally new server are there any shared host that will allow this has i will use a scrpit has well on it
I'm a PowerVPS client. I have 3 VPS servers with them, CPANEL POWER-1, POWER-2 and POWER-3
I was very satisfied client, until today. Let me start from the beginning.
Websites on one of my VPS servers (POWER-2) were loading really long, even logging in to cPanel/WHM took me like 8-10 seconds. I didn't use this VPS before, I contacted tech support and they said MySQL and Apache were set to default and have to be optimized, so they did optimize it. I've copied same website to 3 servers. Performance on POWER-1 and POWER-3 was great. I decided to try if that apache/mysql optimization really helped and test it for couple days to see if I got the same problem. After couple hours I got back to them becase performance on POWER-2 was still horrible. Couple hours later, I got an email saying that this issue has been resolved. It said "there was a VPS on your node that was using up excessive amounts of CPU cycles". Until today I was sure that VPS uses "EQUAL CPU SHARE". If other VPS's owners can affect performance of our VPS server, and memory or CPU is not equally shared, what's the point of using Virtual Dedicated Servers over cheap low quality shared hosting accounts? Does PowerVPS lie to us or I misunderstand idea of VPS?
I have got server, on which there is Windows XP Professional (I know it is not optimal choice), Apache, PHP, MySQL and so on.
What I want to do is to enable access to the disc on the server so that people can upload and download files and directories from the server. I know it is not a safe thing to share the folder on the network. But I don't have to enable access to the whole disc, I can do it only with one given directory.
I shared it in this way: Name_of_directory -> RMB (right mouse button) -> Sharing and Security -> Sharing -> Network sharing and security: [X] Share this folder on the network, Share name: [Name_of_directory], [X] Allow network users to change my files.
The other thing was to change name of the server: My Computer -> RMB -> Properties -> General -> I changed name to "hpserwer".
I enter "Start -> Search" on my laptop (not on remote desktop but on my laptop when I am connected to local network of the company). I choose "Find other elements -> Computers" and write "hpserwer". The result is "no founds". What should I do?
I am planning to start a web-site in which video-sharing(video-hosting) is going to be the primary concept. I need support for a very CPU and RAM instensive program called 'ffmpeg'. I also need a minimum of 2.5TB of disk space and 15TB of bandwidth every month. I tried looking for an ideal host all over the web, but I am more confused than ever.
I am having a video sharing website designed. It's not going to be too busy to start with but I appreciate it will use a lot of bandwidth. I wont be offering the embed option so maybe that will limit the strain.
Any ideas on a good US-based host that can offer me a dedicated and managed solution with fast and friendly support? Any ideas of a monthly cost for a start-up?
I have a client who specializes in providing training for high-end CAD/CAM applications. They have training modules (currently in .ppt format mostly) that they want to store securely on the server and give out access only to approved customers. Additionally, they want to ensure that these training modules never fall into the hands of their competitors- that is, no downloads.
Does anyone have experience with this kind of thing? Based on their requirements, a few possible solutions come to mind:
1.) Put the training modules in a subdomain that is password protected. Additionally, encrypt the traffic with SSL etc. However, this doesn't solve the problem of users being able to download the files and do what they want with them. Also, it isn't possible to view .ppt files online in a browser, as far as I know.
2.) Use a solution similar to what Lynda.com has. They have an entire online library of training videos that are available 24x7, but customers can only view it, not download it. I think they use some solutions from Adobe to make this possible.
I just setup my new Windows 2008 Server. My backed up files are on a Win XP machine. Now, I've tried everything I can think of to connect the two so I can transfer them over. But I can't. Neither machine can see the other, but they are on the same subnet and workgroup. No changes I make to sharing on either machine seems to work.
i want to build a fileshering web site, i know from the start that trafic to my site will be high becouse it is not a regular file host site and i belive that i will have a lot of downloads as service will be mostly free of charge.
from what i understand i will need massive servers or at least good servers with high data transfer speed , reliable up time , very big storage space and massive bandwith.
i understand that budget should be high for this and i am not cutting on budget, i thought on first starting low and then upgrading but the low point of this poject will still need to have the best i can find both in speed ,storage and bandwith.
can you reccomend what service or way i can use for this project?
what servers rapidshare use? megaupload? i know i am still at start but i want a clean start.
