We now have a WHM Vps and also a Dedicated for reselling VPS both located in the UK. At the moment our WHM Vps backs up to an 'Unlimited shared hosting package' but we're sure we're going to be kicked off sooner or later because were using about 50GB storage. We were wondring what everyone else uses to backup? Another disk attached to the server?
Offsite? And how you deal with the extra bandwidth a backup would use.
We now need a solution that can backup our new VPS server and our WHM server. It needs to be in the UK/EU to comply with data protection.
we have about 95 linux server with Cpanel and we use the backup solution in whm and send file on two Dell 2900 with 8 HD 250Gb sata in raid5 but we see that the backup servers are really slow in the data transfer i think that the raid 5 and all the ftp session slow it, what server backup solution do u can suggest for this structure?
what backup solution you all use. We plan on starting to use a backup solution but was wondering what the best one is. R1Soft seems to be pretty popular and I was wondering where all of you guys get your licenses from them. Also if anyone knows how much does a license for 1 backup server and 2 agent servers cost. I see it is like $500.00 at R1Soft directly but is that the only way to get it. Also is R1Soft very good? Please rate it 1 -10 in your reply.
I am about to order a VPS for some backup solutions for my websites, to save my backups etc.
Now, how should I do it ? Let's say one of my main sites are down (server is having a maintenance or the server went down for some unknown reasons, apache crashed, w/e), how should I do it ? I read something about name servers, but I am totally new to this stuff, as I've never dealt with it before.
And no, I do not want any management, it's just a testing box so I can learn it myself.
Anyone got any hints on what to do ? Pref. is if you can give me some links to so some sort of guide(s).
If an email server needs taking offline for a while, is there a simple solution that can be put in place that can catch and temporarily hold the email until it can be released when the server is back online?
Example: I have 1 server for hosting, 1 server as Dedicated Backup server (Pls don't recommend me outsourced backup server as I already got one)
I am looking for a solution which I am able to do daily backup while keeping low server load as well as able to restore it quickly when I need it. It's a cpanel servers.
I understand that CPanel own backup method will tar my files (but I have too many accounts) and it also takes a lot of my server CPU resources which slows down my hosting server.
I am now using rsync which does incremental backup that really works and I am happy about it but I paid $55 per month for 1 cpanel servers as I oursourced the rsync installation & server management backup. I have few servers and I don't find it cost effective.
Anyone here can suggest different kind of method which I have not known yet? Or I would really appreciate if someone do not mind to share installation procedure for rsync with me. I tried to google for it and find them all very shallow information. This is not a try-and-error.
I'd like to ask for opinion what is the best way to backup a client PC in Windows XP/Vista platform.
For example, each PC has a folder inside c:Server
Every 17:00 hours, the PC will FTP all data inside c:Server to backup server.
When it is done, the manager is able to access to his files & do his work remotely online via the server at night in his home. Another reason to have this backup is because they want to secure all the files from any viruses or any accidents in the office during non office hours as the files is important to them. The next morning, he is able to continue his work as normal when files are being merged.
I've recently put together a server in a hurry and overlooked an important aspect - data integrity after power loss. I'm using Linux software RAID-1 with two 150GB WD Raptors but I'm worried that data could be lost due to having write-back cache enabled without a battery backup unit. I would rather not disable the write-back cache for performance reasons.
What is the cheapest way to get a battery backup solution for Linux software RAID? Do I have to use a hardware RAID card or do standalone battery backup units exist that can use existing motherboard SATA ports?
Hello, I've tried several companies and I almost gave up the search for what I need. Maybe someone here can help me find a hosting solution with these requirements: 1) A reseller account / Multi domains for different websites 2) ASP + .net + MS Access with mutli-lingual support 3) PHP 5 + MySQL 5 4) Allow Remote access to mysql thru port (not phpMyAdmin) 5) International Fast connection 6) 24/7 support 7) Location: US
we have a vps hosting package through liquidweb which offers 200gb of bandwidth.
Recently we got a bill with an overage fee of $2527.5 for 3370GB additional bandwidth. I looked at all the cpanel logs and since we had the hosting account we never went over 10gb including the month they said we went over 3370 GB. I put a ticket into liquidweb and they said we launched "Multi-media services" during the same month of the overage, resulting in the overage. We did no such thing, the only thing we did was add content to our website. In the end they want us to pay the bill without offering any log or idea where the bandwidth came from. I'm just wondering if theres anything we can do other then just taking a bill for $2500 of unknowns.
Been trying to decide the best solution to my problem with my current hosting limitations (site has outgrown current shared hosting...getting lots of suspensions due to high load or "exceeds CPU" errors.
Since I am a developer/designer, I'm wondering if a reseller account would be a solution to my problem.
I was looking at managed VPS as well and trying to educate myself on all the ins and outs.
With a reseller account, are you still sharing with others?
What are the limitations?
Would I have better performance with a reseller account than a regular budget priced shared account? (currently w/BlueHost)
Please educate me so I can FINALLY make a decision. I'm so sick of the problems I've been having lately and eager to find a good solution.

we have 5 Rack with about 110 servers and 200mbit of connection, every rack use 1 cisco catalyst 2950 without any hw firewall (we use iptables) now we want organize all with a cisco pix 535 firewall and a traffic shaping solution, what do u think of this configuration?
Ethernet connection from datacenter | | 1 Gigabit swith with the 200mbit connection | | 2 Cisco Pix 535 in fail over | | Traffic shaping server | | | | | | | switch1 switch2 switch3 switch4 switch5
I have a few VPS's, the main one has cPanel/WHM and runs all my sites / email / DNS and MySQL DB's. Heres a little info:
VPS1 - CentOS 4.4, cPanel/WHM, runs all domains (OpenVZ) VPS2 - CentOS 4.4, Webmin, Slave DNS to VPS1 using Webmin cluster (OpenVZ) VPS3 - CentOS 4.4, Webmin, Slave DNS to VPS1 using Webmin cluster (Xen)
However, if VPS1 fails for say 24 hours, im screwed!
So, my question is can I get some kind of redunadancy built in somewhere. For example if someone is trying to access my domain "mydomain.com" and the main VPS is down, then the request for the site would go to VPS2, or VPS3...
The same for the mail server, if some is sending mail to one of the domains on the VPS, and the main VPS was down, the mail would be sent to my other VPS's.
I just don not like the fact there is a single point of failure!
I do have WHM managed Weekly and Monthly backups of all cPanel accounts etc.
i am currently using Ultimahosts.net shared hosting, and i am more than happy with them. Their support & DotnetPanel are two best things.
Now i am planning to move my sites to Windows VPS. i cannot host it with them because their packages for VPS are bit expensive for me. As it starts from 69$.
i am looking for someone with their level of service & support. Can you guys suggest me any windows VPS solutions. i want to sleep peacefully after signing up.
i signed up one VPS with easyCGI last night and their sales person promise me to get it ready within 4 hours, after 16 hours from that i just canceled my order without using anything because they didn't process my order in 16 hours (i hope i will get my money back!).
i have read too many views about 1&1, gate.com,godady, solarvps, powervps,jodohost etc... but as i found some -ve comments i dont think i can carry on with them.
i am thinking of something solid & permanent. i dont wanna to move my sites every 2 months ........
i am looking something around 50$. Thanks in advance for any good suggestions. Please do not reply any marketing/sales stuff. i am looking for genuine feedback.
As many of hosts doesn't offer too much SQL so i am thinking something with 512MB RAM and running SQL express on the same machine.
we have about 100 servers in colocation with a 200mbps connecetion, every server have install a software firewall on, this night we got a DDoS (4 hours down) and naturally we was unable to find the source or destination of attack so now we have think to add a firewall solution on the connection, can u give me a good firewall solution for this structure? we have think on a cisco pix 525 but seem to be expensive 10.000$
i want to kill apache/http and restart it again automatically. i need this because sometime we are not in front of the server to fix an overload issue immediately, which can affect a server very badly. i believe many of us already face this kind of situation and hope there is some kind of script or way to do this.
