Testing New Webserver

Nov 4, 2009

I am looking for some decent tools to test a web server that can run large scale web sites running Windows and Linux.

I am more interested in the underlying hardware at this point to see if the servers them selves are capable of withstanding the loads without choking.

I am most interested in Disk testing and Network testing but the server but of course the server as a whole is important to since cpu and memory bottle neck can affect everything.

I am having trouble finding any providers that provide Opensuse on their configs. So far, the only one seems to be 1&1 and I certainly do not want to be going near them anytime soon.

Does anyone know of a reputable company that can provide Opensuse based servers?

DNS Failover

Mar 26, 2009

I want to add a DNS Failover automated service at my server, in order that when it goes down, the DNS Failover enters in action and it will redirect all the traffic to a second backup/failover server (hosted at a different location).

So in order to do this i have been looking around and i have found dnsmadeeasy, and i found their offer interesting.

But i still have some question and doubts on how a dns failover service works. So maybe someone can expalin it to me.

My question and doubts:

1 - If i use for example the DNS failover from dnsmadeeasy, i would have to buy 2 servers where one is the principal server and the other is a backup/failover server, so when my main server goes down, the dnsmadeeasy will detect in a automatic way, and redirect all the traffic to my backp/failover server. After my principal server goes back online, dnsmadeeasy will automatic redirect all the traffic to the principal server.

Im i correct? Or i understound wrong how this works?

2 - I use my own Nameservers and i want to continue to use my own nameservers. So if i use dnsmadeeasy services, i will be able to continue to use my nameservers as ns1/ns2 and then i will add the dnsmadeeasy ns3/ns4...as the following example:

Failover Or Not

Apr 4, 2009

I am planning to rent 2 managed dedicate servers with windows server 2008 and ms.sql 2008.
which I will use one for web application and 1 for database server.

why people usually divide them into web and database server? is it for security or performance reason?

Which one you prefer to choose?

- 1 server for web and 1 server for database.

- 1 server(web and database) and 1 server for failover

Aug 4, 2007

In making my plans for my web hosting business I plan to start, I've thought about a failover but wanted to know the best way to set it up.

I would ideally like to start with something like getting a small shared hosting solution (not reseller, just shared) at a reliable hosting company. On this hosting plan, I will host a simple 1 page site that says my company is having technical difficulties, reminds people that data is safe, and provides any contact information accessable (like e-mail/phone/etc...).

I already have DNS setup offsite.

I would like that if my server(s) go down for any reason, whatsoever, that DNS automatically starts serving the temp site.

so if my server suddenly goes down, [url]or [url]suddenly goes to the offsite shared hosting plan.

This would not provide customer site redundancy. This would only ensure that if anything happens to my service, customers have a page available that explains what is happening and has information to contact us to get more details.

No Remote Ssh Access To Webserver

May 19, 2009

I have an Ubuntu server and have installed AMP. The server is behind a router (2wire).

I have a static IP address which i use for the webserver. I have enabled the router firewall to allow all the typical webserver ports. When I am on the network (in the vicinity of the network) i am able to connect wirelessly to the server via ssh and also access the domains via my web browser.

But when i connect to the net via another router I am unable to gain ssh access or access the websites from a browser.

When i initiate a connection with putty all i get is a black screen and when i connect to the website i get

Webserver Load Balancer

Mar 8, 2008

traffic has been surging lately and is expected to continue surging. i am already on the fastest chipset my webhost has.

current configuration
single server (centos), webserver (apache), single filesystem. many dynamic pages (perl script) but no mysql database. no php.

ideal configuration
multiple webservers (apache), single file system.

assuming my scripts do not write to the filesystem (read only), what do i need to install or do in order to send a request for www.domain.com to server1.domain.com or server2.domain.com or server3.domain.com according to the load of each? it should look the same at the front end. anyone know what i need to get?

DBServer + WebServer For Under 500 - With 100Mbps

Nov 27, 2008

Due to our bad connectivity in our actual French hosting provider (OVH), we need to search for alternatives.

Please post opinions about other hosting companies that can give same configurations at a reasonable price, if possible with related experience with them.

Actually -from 1 year ago- we have the following configuration at OVH:

1xDBServer: Intel Q6600, 1x250GB, 8GB DDR2, 100Mbps (not real on a daily constant), Wind2K3 STD. : 130eur. + vat
1xWebServer: Intel Core2, 1x160GB, 1GB DDR2, 100Mbps (not real on a daily constant), Win2K3 WEB Ed. : 49eur. + vat
All days we have traffic problems, with low real bandwith connection, also with poor pings to/from Spain (where most percentatge of our users come).
We need to find a hosting provider with a same or a litle best configuration with the follow requisits:

-100Mbps per server [If possible, 100Mbps dedicated (non shared, without aggregation ratio)], UNMETTERED.

-IMPORTANT: Good bandwith connectivity

-Preferable Datacenter hosted in Europe

-WebServer same config, but 2GB DDR (also can be an AMD), if possible with W2K8 WebEd.

-DatabaseServer same config. preferable with 16GB DDR, also preferable -optional- with 2x or 3xSAS 15K. (RAID 1 or Raid 5)

-Possible upgrades (specially beacuse OVH is the first to launch a server with Intel 25GB SSL drives that are superfaster (look at ovh.fr for model HG2009). Any other has support or previsions to serve SSL Drives?)

-If possible, with X days break of contract agreement (money back guaranteed)
We can pay some more at a month, but on the first months we can't pay more than around 500$/Euros.

Linux Sets Up His Own Webserver

Oct 16, 2007

Awhile back I was scouring the site (and the web) to find a single location where I could learn how to set up a Linux webserver on my Windows machine. I found many great references and tutorials -- bits and pieces of some really great stuff -- but not one single location to walk me through the entire process.

So... I created one!


This blog in intended to assist knuckleheads like me in setting up their own Linux webserver. In it are step by step instructions for VMWare on Windows, Linux Debian Etch, Apache, MySQL, PHP, Ruby, Rails, Mongrel, PHPMyAdmin, GD and more. The goal was to create a real world environment where I could learn how to prepare a Linux webserver, so when the day comes that I purchase my own VPS space, I will be ready to set it up...

This was a great learning experience for me, and I hope a good resource for other newbies like me in the days to come.

Slow Upload To Webserver

May 21, 2007

Recently I signed up with a new hosts. I am a reseller. I am trying to upload my website - about 155MB. I am only getting 2kb p/s upload taking almost 20 hours to upload.

I tried using a different PC at home (connected to the same internet line) but still same problem. I am not sure what is the problem.

Called my ISP, they ask me to try a few things such as deleting temp files and caches but still no luck.

I also notice my antivirus (Avast) showing - blocked Dcom Exploit very often.

My download speed is fine - getting around 70kb p/s. I am on broadbank 512K download and 256 download.

Webserver Control Panels

Sep 10, 2007

There's a bit of a project which I am going to be launching hopefully within about a month or so. Its going to be fairly server intensive, and as I don't know what the outcome will be, I wish to host it myself on a few spare machines I have for the time-being.

Now, the issue at this stage is installing all the necessary webserver software and controling it from one page, like a control panel.

I don't mind looking into control panels such as Plesk or any others, but would these automatically install all the software that is needed by the CP - such as Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl etc?

I'd appreciate if anyone could give me some guidance as far as control panels and web server software is concerned.

PIX Failover, Serial Or LAN?

Jul 11, 2008

We have 2 Cisco PIX 515's in a failover configuration (7.1 series IOS). We have available both a serial failover cable and adequate switch capacity to allow using either the serial or LAN-based approach. We have no current plans to locate the firewalls physically apart.

We have plenty of info on how to configure either, but no recommendation on which is the better choice.

Web Hosting Failover

Feb 21, 2009

I have a reseller account with a company that often has spontaneous DNS errors, and this, as you know looses us money. I also have a dedicated server running a panel exclusively via IIS. Is there a way I can set up my dedicated (Windows) box and my reseller account in a mirror way, so if one of them fails, the other will take over.

There are no file changes often, more database then anything. Is this possible?
Main necessities are:

-Mail Servers

-MySQL Servers


-Cron jobs

(Or, if a shared hosting company can accommodate this somehow and is relatively inexpensive.

DNS Failover/Redundancy

May 1, 2008

Basically have 2 hosting accounts at different providers...each set-up for the same domain name...and then somehow wtih DNS make it so if host #1 goes down traffic goes to host #2 (which would basically be a splash screen explaining that host #1 is down and will be back soon).

DNS isn't my strong point, but I do know you can do this with MX records...so if the first server fails it tries the next until it gets a working one or reaches the end of the list. I'd just like to do it is A records.

It wouldn't be as simple as setting the nameservers like this would it?


Would it use the host1 nameservers as long as they're online, and if not failover to the host2 nameservers? If so, great, but what if the host1 nameservers are online but the server itself is not.

DNS Failover Service

Dec 10, 2007

Assume, a DNS failover service would change the DNS from server 1 to server 2 when the first one is offline. This will be changed quite fast, however isn't it true that some visitors still experience a downtime of a couple of hours (saying that the main server will be offline for 6 hours) as their ISP might not update DNS that frequently?

So basically, what is the added value of a failover service?

Secondary DNS Failover

Jul 22, 2008

What happens if your primary nameserver goes down? Meaning that it goes completely off the net, not even denying dns requests but completely ignoring them.

I'd guess that resolvers would query the secondary NS after a specified timeout, but what is that timeout set to? Does it differ from ISP to ISP? How much of a slowdown are we looking at for end users?

Failover Server

Oct 26, 2007

I'd like to create a failover server, a complete and identical copy (as much as possible) of my primary server, which becomes "primary" when the first server dies.

I've been reading a lot about this subject and i've seen an already working method which uses rsync and MySQL replication.

Has anyone managed to create such a system? is there someone with experience or can point me to a relevant web site?
