Using Win 2008 Standard Edition And External DNS Service
Dec 6, 2008
The server i am using is DIY and there is no assiatance if I am stuck
I am using external DNS server and I am looking to host my site as I am doing now on my home lean and mean win xp. Do I have to use Active Directory and may be the local DNS server to publish my web site? If not why IIS page is accessible but when I run Jboss I cannot get through to my server?
Posted this as an add-on to another question I had in the Tech forum, had no reply, perhaps I posted in the wrong forum. Posting here instead:
I noticed MS has lifted some of the restriction concerning the Web Server edition, it's like half the price of Standard.
I'm mainly going to be hosting a couple of separate web sites, run ASP.Net and PHP, along with some database servers (currently considering SQL Server Express and MySQL).
Email server is being considered, though our load isn't too great, it's just for a couple of friends and myself. We're also intending to run game servers off it (Counter-Strike Source, Call of Duty series, etc.) on occasions.
Would the Web Server edition suffice for these? Or is it still technically limited/has license restrictions, and I will need at least the standard edition?
I may also intend to serve streaming windows Media files.
I use Windows Plesk v 11.5.30 with Mailenable Standard Edition 7.0 version. In mailenable site i saw a new version of Mailenable standard version (7.5.1). URL...Can i download and update Mailenable version of my Windows PLesk? If i made this change and have problem can i do downgrande later?
I just installed Plesk 12 Web Admin Edition, installed and activated all licence keys and everything works fine.The only thing, I can't find the "Service Provider View" in the Interface Settings, there is only a "Power-User" view provided, even I've selected the Service Provider View during Plesk Setup, I was moved to the Power User view and now I can't switch the interface.I am really missing the server health monitoring from this Service Provider View like got it on all other servers I have.
We are hosting multiple servers for a site, web, db, media etc and all of them are in the same DC. I am getting worried that incase a server goes down, it would take DNS down along with and will also take emails out.
I was looking to use a good and reliable DNS service which would ensure that we are reliable and emails don't go out incase of an outage.
I have some questions about Windows 2003. I have tested many different Windows VPS hosts and I have noticed that some of them offers Windows 2003 enterprise edition and some offers Datacenter edition. What is the difference between the two?
I remember that godaddy had datacenter ed and the vps I use now (eukhost) is using enterprise edition.
Plesk delivering email locally to a not existing mailbox instead of sending it to an external party. First I was using a local mailbox, but my client wanted to control the email using their own server. So I've changed the MX records to this new server. Deleted the inbox in Plesk and turned off Mail support for this domain.
New situation: DNS server for domain.com is hosted on a different location and points to my Plesk server for the website and the MX records point to the clients server for the mail.
Email send from email addresses like gmail are send correctly to the clients server. Email addresses from my PLesk server and forms from the website are send locally.
I want to develop a package for Parallels Plesk Automation to introduce some services like backup email, database, websites. I want to know whether it is possible with Parallels Plesk Automation and if so any links to developers site/documentation.
I was wondering if anyone know how the anon edition is suppose to look? Is it just like a regular edition? From what I read, it is an honor system where you trust the client not to break the license. Am I wrong here? Would there be anything built in to prevent a client from running authenticated softwares? built into the OS itself?
does anyone know where i can get Interspire Vendor edition for free. i would prefer someone to host it for me or i can host it my self. If i have to host it my self does anyone know where i can get help for 100 webspace control pannel
I am about to get a dedicated unmanaged server with Windows 2003 web edition. So far I am used to shared , VPS and home hosting but since the web edition doesn't have an active directory - how to configure the DNS server to point to my server machine or is this job of my host
I've been working on a large online browser game for the last year on and off - it's due to open for beta in Oct. This game is coded in PHP/AJAX with MySQL. It's quite heavy on different graphics with characters, items, illustrations etc. It will also have a selection of Flash games to play. Similar gaming sites have more than 1000 users online in peak hours and we estimate that and more within the first 3-5 months of opening.
I want to open my site on a Windows Server as I'm a lot more familiar with Windows (Having an MCP for Windows Server 2003). I am unsure however what edition to go with. At first I thought Windows Server 2003 Web Edition (Being a website!), but this only supports up to 2gb of ram I believe? and may prove to be an issue if we need to upgrade due to the high demand of online users.
I understand I can have more than one server, but would you recommend another edition?
I have a dedicated server running windows web edition. What is the easiest way to set up a VPN server on this machine so that I can log in to it from my home connection and route all my traffic through my server.
I've found a few guides for setting this up on linux boxes, but not with windows.
I asked this question before in the past and I still have to ask it: has anyone used both Ubuntu Server Edition and CentOS? I would like to compare both operating system, in terms of speed, performance, security, and stability.
I have decided to build my new server and use Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit operating system after using CentOS 64-bit operating system for a bit over a year now.
The reason why I have chosen to use Ubuntu Server Edition is because of the operating system's fabulous reputation among desktop PC users, and its large and helpful support community.
Support is what I need most, and Ubuntu seems to have it. I also am not the best with Linux yet, so it will definitely be needed. Ubuntu also seems to update its software faster than other operating systems.
I hope my decision to switch from CentOS 64-bit to Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit will not be in vain.
Can anyone compare these two 64-bit operating systems and possibly link me to some reviews, comparisons, and/or benchmark results?
Can I upgrade MS SQL 2000 Standard Edition to SQL 2005 Express Edition? I know I can upgrade to SQL 2005 Standard as well as Enterprise Editions, but I want to know if I can also upgrade to the SQL 2005 Express Edition.
Early on, I use this Plesk under trial license mode and have set the subscription for each domains to 20GB (hard disk) and 100GB (bandwidth).
Later, I sign up for Web Admin Edition. I understand that this version does not have abilities to manage quotas. The issue that I have now, after I entered the activation key (Web Admin Edition), my existing domain's quota remain as it is instead of unlimited.
Please refer to the attachment to see the screenshot....
I have one customer installed with plesk 11.5 + power pack integrated with mssql 2008 express on his server.But now client want to install Mssql 2008 web edition. Is this possible to replace the express edition with web in plesk panel?
I'm getting a traffic notification on a site I restored from a backup that originally came from a standard Plesk edition. Web Admin Edition doesn't appear to have access to Subscriptions, and all I can find with regard to limits under Webspaces is a hard disk quota, which isn't even editable. How do I amend of remove the limit?
