Cent OS

Apr 23, 2007

I have a server in our office which is used as a share drive. Puts all accounting docs on it ect. After 6 or so, it will loss all conectivity completely. Yet the server still stays on. We installed everything in all packages on the server including it graphical interface. We havent mucked with any of the powersavings so what could it be. Also there is nothing plugged into it eg screen,keyboard and mouse. All that is connected is the power cable and the ethernet cable. That is it.

It is directly connected to a belkin wireless router

How To Check Which Version Of Cent Os Is Used

Jun 28, 2009

how to check which version of cent os is used?

my friend ordered an vps with a host, he ordered 5.3 - 32bit but some how I feel he has been provided with 5.0 version by the host, I didn't know how to confirm it, when I checked his hypervm, this was the cent os details provided:

Ostemplate: centos-5-i386-hostinabox576

there is rebuild option in the hypervm and in tht when I look out,here it shows the following:

what my friend exactly needs is a cent os 5.3 - 32bit system, so if he selects cent os 5.3-ix386 (full) will it install with cent os 5.3 ?? he doesn't want kloxo to b in there auto, he/I can install tht,

Upgrading To .NET 3.5

Jul 10, 2008

My .NET software requires version 3.5 of the framework. But the ISAPI module is 2.0 and I'm wondering how I can upgrade it to 3.5. Windows hosting is not my field so I am a bit lost here.

Anyone have pointers? So far I've been looking for an ISAPI module but haven't found any. The 3.5 framework is installed but I don't know where the .dll file is (if there is any for IIS).

Upgrading PHP On A VPS

May 12, 2008

I am currently upgrading my PHP on my unmanaged VPS. From PHP4 to PHP 5. I have been following the following website tutorial at nix101.com/2007/09/22/setting-up-a-secure-and-fast-php-build-for-litespeed/ on how to do it for the litespeed server of which I have got installed.

But now I have come to the stage where it says Make, Make Install. And I keep on getting the following error messages coming up

Make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

Make Install: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.

I have got running on it Centos 4 and I have just installed Yum to see if that sorts out the problem. But it don't.

So any suggestions on how to sort out the make, and make install so that I can finish configing PHP.

What Happens To You/someone Else When Upgrading

Sep 28, 2007

this may seem like a strange question but what happens to your and other VPS accounts when someone upgrades part of their account? This doesn't make much sense so I'll give you an example...

Your VPS host has a nice big server with 8Gb of RAM. Currently there are 16 users on the server each with 512Mb RAM (for simplicity) therefore all RAM is currently used. Now, say I decide to upgrade my RAM to 1Gb, what happens? Do they move me to a new server? Do they move someone else to a new server? Is there any down time during this move? Would I be notified of this move?

This question is more out of curiosity than anything else and I know that the above example is somewhat unrealistic as most servers which were hosting VPS would probably have some spare RAM but eventually it has to run out.

Upgrading PHP

Feb 17, 2007

I'm debating whether I should try upgrading php myself or if I should just pay someone to do it.

I know very little about server stuff. I'm more of an SEO guy who can write a few php scripts.

Currently we are running Plesk 7.5.4 on our server with PHP version 4.3.2. I want to install the latest version of vBulletin on the server, but it requires at least 4.3.3.

Unless there are some unforseen issues, I'd be happy to upgrade to the latest version, PHP 5.2.1.

Is this a super easy type of deal that even a server retard (myself) could handle or is it something that only an experienced server dude / chick should mess with.

If it is a good idea to pay someone, what is a fair rate?

Upgrading To A VPS

Sep 1, 2007

I've traditionally used shared hosting to cover all my needs however as my sites have grown in popularity my host has suggested I should really upgrade to a VPS before he pulls the plug.

However as I've always been within a shared environment, I've absolutely no idea what sort of resources I will require. Bandwidth and disk space I can manage, but how does one work out the RAM requirements of a piece of software without prior access to a Dedicated or VP server?

Basically I need to run a Joomla install (with a forum integrated), two more standalone forums, a MediaWiki site, the Roundcube mail system and a few static websites. Can anyone point me to a resource that would allow me to work out a rough requirements estimate for that?

Luckily the host I'm considering offers an off-server Control Panel (HSPcomplete, never heard of it mind) but would I be right in thinking I'd still require a fairly sizeable machine?

Upgrading From Dual 285's

Nov 27, 2008

We have 2 servers with old Dual Opteron 285's and would like preform an upgrade. I'm not sure where to start, these servers are for webhosting and load is pretty much around 3~5 during peak times.

We have the following choices:

Single Q9550 (Will it preform better than my current CPUs? Are they suitable for server use?)

Dual E5405's (Slowest Harpertown, is it worth it?)

Upgrading Apache ..

Jan 12, 2008

I currently have a basic level VPS and was wondering if it is wise to upgrade apache from 1.3 to 2.2 and php to 5?

I am not quite sure why do I want to upgrade when everything is already running smoothly but it's just if something better exist then why not take advantage of that?

Anyone who can advise if this is going to a be a wise move? I have quite a few sites running on php so might have issues with newer version.

Upgrading Mysql From 4 To 5

May 4, 2008

After the vBulletin's latest version i had to upgrade my mysql server from 4 to 5

searched a little bit found out that it can be done through tweak settings ,, select 5 and click save then do the server software update link .

i did that

after that i checked one of the websites that uses vB

found this database error:

Database error in vBulletin :

mysql_connect() [&lt;a href='function.mysql-connect'&gt;function.mysql-connect&lt;/a&gt;]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
/home/xxx/public_html/vb/includes/class_core.php on line 274

MySQL Error :
Error Number :
Date : Sunday, May 4th 2008 @ 01:05:15 PM
Script : [url]
Referrer :
IP Address :
Username :
Classname : vB_

i went to the shell and wrote (mysql) i received this error:

[root@server tmp]# mysql
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

googled alot searching for a solution but i found millions of problems with different specifications so i didn't want to mess it up more!

most of them talked about the file (/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock) and the configurations in the file (my.cnf)

i've been through my.cnf and couldn't find anything about /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

my server is centOs 5 32 bit intel xeon
my php version is 5.2.5

i've reset the root password to mysql to blank again through WHM

i really hope that you can provide me with a solution ASAP as my clients are starting to warm up to beat me

if anyone of you needs to know anything else about my server just shoot and i'll be here to answer

By the way
the file mysql.sock doesn't seem to be there on the server.

Upgrading Mysql

Apr 22, 2007

I've been trying to move this one website to a VPS for a few days now. Everything was easy enough until it comes to restoring the wordpress blog. The problem is that the VPS that I'm transferring to has mysql 3.23. Since wordpress requires 4.0+ mysql I've been trying to upgrade but I keep running into problems.

The OS is centos 3.8 and I've been using RPMs to install mysql. First I uninstalled the old mysql using "rpm -qa | grep mysql" and then moving the packs. Then I find mysql 4.1.22 centos. I installed them using rpm -ivh blahblah.

After that I restart mysql and apache. When I start apache I get this error "Cannot load /etc/httpd/modules/mod_auth_mysql.so into server: libmysqlclient.so.10: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Well I commented that part from httpd.conf and was able to restart apache no problem.

The problem is after I restart apache, php is unable to connect to mysql. In other words, wordpress isn't working (got the "Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL which is required for WordPress" error). Now I don't think its that line since I'm not requiring any authencation. It seems to be what comes with the old mysql 3.23

My problem is how do I get pass this error? I've even tried compiling php from source with --mysql switch and it still doesn't connect.

I've noticed that if I just installed the new mysql, wordpress actually works but obviously when apache restarts, it wouldn't work.

Could it be that apache is somehow requiring the authencation? but since I've disabled that line, I don't know why it needs that.
