i am trying hard to understand how everything works, i just finished installing my CentOS 5.2 OS and need to install + Apache + MySQL + PHP/Perl.
Also i downloaded the apache file and tried to insatll it but it has to be done by giving a command via Bash shell for wht i understood, so i downloaded bash shell file. How and where do i enter the commands for installing these applications?
how can i do a search for all files (probs using regex) of files consisting purely of numbers?
for e.g. find:
53243.php 24353.php 24098.php
(always have 5 numbers).
seems one of my accounts has had some script run which generated a bunch of these in various subfolders, and the php file basically does a callback to www3.rssnews.ws and www3.xmldata.info, which seem to be some sort of spyware servers.
A part of my sshd_config: Port 2255 Protocol 2 ListenAddress 8x.xx.xx.46 PermitRootLogin no
Recently, when I want to connect to my server using putty, I get "Connection Refused" using the above IP address and port. When I enter the above IP address (or any other IP address that is stored/set on the server) and port 22, I get "Server refused to start shell/command".
It did work before, using 8x.xx.xx.46:2255 and when I enter 8x.xx.xx.46:22 it will block. But now... not anymore.
I am using "Direct Admin" to do a "System Backup". I do see the right port and IP address in the sshd_config file.
How can I fix this? I can not login the server anymore, however I am going to the datacenter tomorrow.
OS: CentOS Installed firewall / protection: APF + BFD Control Panel: Direct Admin
1. Does it mean that the client can use an SSL without the need to use a dedicated IP? 2. Someone said that it does but such channel is insecure. So, is that correct? If yes, why it's insecure? I thought the SSL itself is to encrypt the connection between client's browser and server. What the different does it make?
I can simply ask the hosting support but I need an objective opinion about this.
This site is good, though every day people on hosting hunts come here to ask questions about how to find a company. Here I am doing it, but I want to suggest or find something better -- a tool to help narrow down the hosting hunt based on parameters. Has anybody made one?
My parameters are harder to find for than I would like. For example, I want a west coast VPS, so that my ping time from Silicon Valley will be minimal. To my surprise, some hosting companies block ping on their main page, and many don't have reverse DNS, forcing one to do ping -n. (Not that it's hard to do ping -n, but why make it harder for anybody!)
The next thing I want is ubuntu. For the simple reason that this is what I am standardizing on for all my systems, and using the same system means less figuring out how to do it twice. And in many cases the ability to compile on one machine and upload to the server.
Next I want lots of memory -- 768mb or more, and I want burstablity, even though I know it only happens sometimes. To me, the whole point of a VPS is that you get more resources when you need them, and when you scale back, another user gets to burst in them and everybody has a better chance at giving good response in peaks.
Next I want a decent price, $60 or so. Once you get to $90 you can get dedicated servers, that market is getting more competitive. Dedicated servers can't burst, but they can swap, meaning that the unused pages from your deaemons and rarely used programs page out, so your ram total is for live ram that's being used. On a VPS your ram total is for everything. VPSs have processes die when they hit the ram wall, dedicated servers just get slower as they swap.
I don't want a control panel, and I don't want to pay for one. You don't usually get them with ubuntu anyway. Except the virtuozzo panel for reboot etc.
Of course I demand a site with a good reputation, fast support response time (when I need it) and high uptime.
The winner in my search was vpslink with the special they had running until the 7th. They don't do bursting but their special made a high-ram server come into my price range to make up for it. But it's no longer running.
Knownhost is pretty good but doesn't do Ubuntu.
I am also very interested in what imountain does, offering you shared SQL database access on a different, non-virtualized server. I like that idea a lot. But they do only Centos, and they don't burst ram (but they don't need to as much)
Futurehosting also seems good, but their ping time at 66ms to Dallas is too high, and I am scared because their own personal DNS was down for several hours yesterday.
Can someone help me with web hosts providing WHM as standard feature on their web hosts instead of in only reseller plans.
I do not need a reseller plan, just want a plan to host multiple sites of my own but don't want to use the addon domains route.
I am currently hosted on Axishost for exactly the same reason as they provide WHM access but I need a little more space than what Axishost offers.
My requirements: 1.5 GB of storage & around 20 GB bandwidth per month for around $10 per month. (Axishost provides 1 GB space and I may just fall a little short on space. Except for this, I am quite happy with Axishost)
I could only find Resellerzoom which fits my budget perfectly but not sure about their Acceptable Use Policy which seems to be quite scary for the Budget Reseller Plan based on what I read on these forums.
I am using CPanel. I just made customized features list and want to update all accounts of my reseller with that feature list. But problem is if I update package, this will update account space/bw, I am some account edit direct for space and bw etc. but thats account have same package name.
Is there any option available that update features list without changing current space + BW.
