VPS Server My First I Dont Think Mod Rewrite Works
May 20, 2007
I finally bought a VPS after not being able to pay for a dedicated server so I bought one from VPSbyte.com as they came highly recomended $39.95 server with Cpanel not the cheapest I gathered but I wanted reliable servers
now I moved my forum over to the server all was ok after I got the massive database sent over but when I tried to view a thread or category I could not it came back with No Valid input or something like that
I went into admin and disabled zoints SEO mod and the forum works fine BTW its a VB forum.
would it be due to mod rewrite that the forum does not work with zoints? and is it possible to get it to work?
My server is hosted within a Virtuozzo VPS Server, and it runs very slow. Sometimes, when I type commands via shell, it takes 1-2 seconds to be echoed.
I've just checked free memory ('free -m') and it seems to be ok:
Code: free -m total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 8104 7642 461 0 220 3979 -/+ buffers/cache: 3443 4661 Swap: 4094 0 4094 If I check "ps -ef" I don't see any weird process and with "top" the most memory-wasting process is 'mysqld' (0.8%).
I found a socket available other than 80 which would not allow me to use. I set it in the conf file as 1800 and then go to apache/bin directory and load httpd.exe. When I go to the browser, I have to type in http://localhost:1800 for it to work once. If I close the browser and try again, or I try a php file, it says it can't find localhost. I have to stop httpd.exe and reload, then it will work once.
Do I have to find a way to use socket 80 for it to work?
I ordered a vps from knownhost the other day for $50/mo w/ cpanel
I have been using it for:
hosting of my own websites and 5 other clients (15 websites total)
installed a counter-strike source 11slot 100tick 500fps server w/ srctv on it and it RUNS GREAT!! solid 500fps, no lag/choke, wonderful registration!
cpu load maxes at around 60% and ram usage is about 80%
after being with nearly ever game server provider out there my team has agreed that this is the best server we've ever had.
so to all of you people wondering about it, YES, you can run a gameserver on a vps, and I reccommend it to everyone. Not only will it save you money, but you will be able host all your websites and run even a ventrilo server if you want.
We have a server that is (unfortunately) running Windows. I'd like to change the strings from something like index.php?p=home to /home. I know how to do this on an Apache server, but I'm completely clueless for a Windows server running IIS.
I had my server shut down due to ddos attacks and proxy calls. I am a designer so I dunno what this means so I asked for proof and they said it was archived. I then tried getting my servers back online with them for over the last few hours and they replied we cant help you. I offered $3000usd to fix the problem and they said they cant do it. From where I come from, if a virus is added it can be removed under any circumstances. I then kept on phoning to get my server restored hense I am selling a lot of website property lately and he totally by passed that, I was put on hold for over 20 minutes and I am calling from Canada. I phoned the last time and told a white lie saying I have huge partners ready to boycott their company unless they restore my server....
What do you know it got restored and I got all my sites moved over to the new server, but this is the golden part.
Have you ever phoned your hosting company and been sworn at? Been called a ****ing idiot or to **** off and stop phoning, or I have had enough of your ****ing ****? Well this is what I heard from Ben at CalPOP and that is totally unacceptible hense I am the customer who was about to purchase numerous servers from them to increase my bandwith usage I would be using on my upcomming site called thewetwilly.com.
I dont respect a programming punk thinking he is better then me just because he works for a low end database center. I also dont respect being called an idiot while I am purchasing hosting from the company, aswell as being to to **** OFF. 100% totally unacceptable.
Alot of my friends have experienced poorness with this company and I wish I noticed it earlier instead of taking it the hard way/HARSH WAY.
But hey I am sure my word will get around and people will stop using calPOP due to their immaturity Cali Mr know it all talk and realize that they can find a better place to host their site.
I also have been told that calPOP used the excuse of DDOS and Proxy attacks as an excuse to get rid of you because you are using to much bandwith.
Oh they also told me that they would send me the HD for $100usd so I could move to another server, wtf is that???
Last month i have problems and outgages with a node in powervps vz45 in the 205.234.106 .20 and in other threads i mention previously that server. Last 1 october, node have a rare problem and they say in a few days they move accounts to other node.
Because a SERIOUS Problem with my personal life, this last week i dont get backups, and wednesday a thief in house stole my mobile HD (without passswords and ciphered). The Friday my VPS crash.... and three days later they are restoring the backup... and None of the 140-180 sites yet online.
I read in other thread a more problem about they laterly, but for me is near fatal, because 33% are my best customers (i plan to migrate to other host the server the 15 of the month but for the personal thing i cant.
88 USD monthly and three days to recover the Nodes ?
i waould like to warn people of a1isp the main fellow thats the problem is called just.
ill start with explaining my issue.
in august last your i bought cabinet space and me and my mum became ill so i was unable to use it. i asked for a refund and he refused so i opened up a chargeback and he threatened a lawsuit unless i cancelled it.i have become alot better now and wish to use that space of which ive paid for and the reply i got from him is we do not want your sort of people here.i take very highly to this comment and wish for other peoples oppinions on what todo and also to warn people of this company i dotn like doing this but im left with no choice
I've been using SLHOST.com for a couple of years, and they used to have great VPS service. My server was always up (I'm not a power user, I just host some small business websites for clients of my web design company - nothing that gets a lot of traffic or puts a strain on the server).
They recently moved locations, and I've had nothing but problems. They somehow screwed up the IP and DNS of the server. My (and my clients sites) couldn't be accessed for over a week! Support kept telling me that there was no problem, unti I proved to them that the DNS wasn't right. I didn't have any email during this period, and either did my clients.
Since then, AT LEAST one of the services on the server randomly stops working (the two big ones are DNS and STMP) a couple of times a day. I don't receive error messages (I know because my clients call me screaming why their email isn't working AGAIN).
As a web design company, I've lost reputability. As a professional affiliate marketer, I have literally lost over a thousand dollars because of the downtime. Every time I contact support, they restart the services and tell me there's no problem with the server (which is obiously not true).
Any suggestions from other webhostingtalk users on how to get better service and a credit from SLHOST.com? I'm not technical and I need a VPS that just simply works.
I recently started monitoring my server 2 days ago with hyperspin. I can post my support emails here as proof and verification that these problems are occuring multiple times a day.
I have a freshly installed 'Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1' VPS with Plesk 11.5.30.When installing certain applications (for example, Dolphin, Elgg), it halts with the following error message: Requirements: Apache module - The app requires the 'rewrite' web server module
When I check in Windows IIS Manager under Modules, I see RewriteModule is installed as a native module.When checking the KB about this issue: URL..it says to enable the rewrite module by ticking it in the 'Configure native modules' box.However, that module is not even listed there, even though it clearly is listed in the main module overview as a native module.
Also, in Plesk > Tools & Settings > Server Management > Panel Components, URL rewrite is also listed: URL Rewrite [Active] IIS URL Rewrite Module 2 7.2.2
While lunarpages is kind and offers great support. The support takes a while. They frequenlty get hacked or block your ip to where you can not access cpanel and switch your servers a lot in the past 3 months i got transfered to 4 different servers with the last one atlantis and prior one belogna. There support can take up to 72 hours to respond back where other hosts at max 24 hours. Their downtime has been around 97% not advertised 99.9%.
This is what really upset me.
I contacted them through email to cancel my account and they said they need more info, ok. Gave them info and they went ahead to renewing the account after I had gave them proper info. I tried to get this resolved for over a week now.
I thought since they renewed my account i should access my account and download my entire site, well I could not access cpanel again, no surprise there.
I just now got off a 20 min phone call and they tried to get my account canceled as I gave proper info to cancel the account so I would not be renewed and they tried to sell me their service for $75 to close my account.
I eventually had to threaten them to press lawsuits "not that I would even if it wasnt handled" and they said we will close your account and not charge you the $75 to do so.
My god! How hard is it to close an account with such service?
When I joined them my first year was absolutely great! It just has started to decline in the past couple months or so.
I rate them at 50% great because their supportive in all areas except for the slow response and canceling an account.
Dont use them ive had much better success with GoDaddy.... wow GoDaddy! I know tell me about it. GoDaddy is not my favorite host.
You need to be careful when finding a host becasue ive learned that they pay to be on the top. I am now using Host Gator with no compaints looking at moving to HostMonster for the price and services though should I?
I was told that was normal as its apache's MPM prefork way of waking up the worker processes. That I have accepted however it has been problematic ever since I installed mod_security that things have been going ape.
2. The Bandwidth in CPanel and that in Apache does not add up. There is only 1 account on the server. The bandwidth usage in CPanel shows 51GB for the month of July so far, however in WHM under Apache status it shows 223GB of Bandwidth in the last 48 hours.
Now given the the host tells me that CPanel does not count certain bandwidth(?) I am not certain what to think as the difference in bandwidth is a whopping 160GB in the past 2 days.

I cant make php 5.2.1 work as httpd 2.2.4 and 2.2.3 module. When loaded with php it makes httpd dont start at all without any errors in log even on debug level! However when I place php 5.2.0 as module it immediately starts working ok.
I've tested this with a standart ./configure without any parameters for both php and httpd, and httpd is always not working when it tries to load php 5.2.1 as module.
Did someone run php 5.2.1 with httpd >2.2.3 succesfully?
I had made a post earlier about trying to get an exim ACL or filter to work with cpanel 10 to deny all messages with a 10 or above spam rating while forwarding 5-10 scored messages to a spambox, but I decided to tryout upgrading to CPanel 11 which adds a built-in solution.
I've had no luck using WHM's Exim Configuration editor with
"Reject mail at SMTP time if the spam score from spamassassin is greater than 10.0."
We have serveral vps servers from dmehosting.com. I would say never choose dmehosting.com for your sites. A vps server is down for more than 14 hours and still down. They do not reply to my tickets. They do not inform about the issues.
I had have many issues with them like 1 - 2 hours downtime but that's not really matter.
Now the server is down for more than 14 hours and still not up. I have even asked them to transfer this vps server to another working node but they are not responding.
DON'T CHOOSE DME HOSTING .COM FOR VPS SERVERS........IF YOU NEED HIGH UPTIME AND SECURE DATA.
I want to pass on a warning before anyone goes with iWEB. I just ordered a $269 a month dedicated server so I could run vmware on it for my own virtual machines that I need.
With this server I got 7 IPs.
The primary IP they assigned me is say for example: 70.xx.15.171 with a GW of 70.xx.15.161. The secondary ips they issue me are 70.xx.18.249-254. So these are on a completly different subnets.
After talking on the phone to several differnt people including tech support who tells me this will work jsut fine useing thoes secondary ips on my VMs and to not put a gateway address. I talk to my account manager he says to open a ticket that he will forward to their system admins.
This is the ticket I opened.
I just got a new server set up CL-T113-140CL. It was assigned the primary ip of 70.xx.15.171 with a GW of 70.xx.15.161. My secondary ips are 70.xx.18.249-254. The server we got from you is a VMWare host. We need to use the secondary IPs for the Guest VMs. How ever the primary and secondary IPS are on different subnets and so the VMs useing the IPs 70.xx.18.249-254 can not talk to the gateway. I need to have a gateway server IP to use for my VMs.
Please either give me a valid GW address for the 70.38.19.x subnet or assign new secondary IPs on teh 70.xx.15.x subnet with a SM that can talk to the 70.xx.15.161 GW assigned.
this is the reply I get back from their system adminstrator
The gateway to be used for your secondary IP addresses is the same as the one for your primary. You should not have anything to change, gateway-wise. Just leave the current one as default gateway and everything should work just fine.
If there is anything please do not hesitate to contact us.

Are they brain dead at iWEB? DO they understand basic TCP-IP networking at all?
Here is my last reply. I tried to make it real simple for them to understand.
This does not address the issues. Do you even know what a virtual machine is? It is a virtual computer running on the host computer. The host computer has a valid ip address of 70.xx.15.171, sm: 255.255.255.224 gw: 70.xx.15.161. The virtual machines (or guest operating systems) if I assign it the IP address of 70.xx.18.249 SM: 255.255.255.248 with no gateway it is physically impossible for it to reach the gateway of the host pc 70.xx.15.161. You have to understand the Virtual Machine operates as a completely separate computer. It requires its own gateway. with no gateway specified it has no way to get out of its local subnet to get to the 70.xx.15.x subnet. What happens if you put two physical computers on one hub. The computer on port 1 of the hub has the IP info 70.xx.15.171 SM: 255.255.255.224 GW 70.xx.15.161. The second computer is on port 2. It has the ip info of: 70.xx.18.249 SM: 255.255.255.248 GW: NONE. How is the pc on port 2 going to communicate with the pc on port 1? This is the exact situation we are in. There has to be a gateway to route the IP traffic from pc2 to pc1 to get onto the internet.
I just installed wamp here on my laptop to set up a developer machine for my website. I am used to going into the browser and just typing in "localhost" and having it bring up the test website. I'm sure there is probably something wrong with the configuration of the wamp files because it works for 127.0.0.1.
