Windows Standard License

May 26, 2008

I see most of the providers offering Windows 2003 STD license $20-$30 per month. I wonder how is that done, do they buy licenses in bulk and then lease them monthly basis or there is an agreement with Microsoft. I have a few linux boxes colocated and would like to procure Windows licenses on my own. Also how to go for licenses for VPS server?

Windows 2003 Web & Standard

Oct 19, 2008

I'm sure there is an easy answer to this, and i'm probably being a little lazy, but the google searches i did didn't really help.

As I need to have windows hosting, apart from the price, is there any difference between setting up the server with windows 2003 standard edition and web edition?

I want to run MS SQL and My sql databases, run asp, .Net 2 and php on the server.

I'd also want to connect with RDP which i'm assuming is fine.

Most of the searches seem to talk about the fact that you can't set up active directory,or making it a domain controller but not much else.

I'm primarily going to use the server for gaming.

Windows Standard 2003 Vs R2

Aug 10, 2007

Is the R2 just a version with all the upgrades or service packs already updated?

In other words can I use the older copy and just pull the upgrades from micosoft.

FTP Setup On Windows 2003 Standard

Oct 5, 2006

Im trying to setup FTP on Windows 2003 Standard. Multiple people will need access, the problem Im having is how do I make it to where certain ftp accounts only have access to certain folders and certain ftp accounts have access to the whole root directory of that folder?

For instance under websitefolder you have a folder called bobsfolder. I want bob to login and just be "jailed" to bobsfolder, but when websitefolderadmin logs in they have access to the root of websitefolder and all its subfolders.

Windows 2008 Standard VS Web Edition

Nov 25, 2008

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.

Windows 2003 Server Standard R2

May 5, 2008

I have to setup a company server over a huge hardware profile made for me:

- 8 cpu
- 16gb RAM
- gbits LAN
- 1 TB of RAID-5 storage bay

The server will be splitted in two server (it's actually a balde running ESX and two guests).

My question is:

- I am better to setup 64 bits or better run the old and stable 32 bits?

I consider this question because:

- I might install Exchange 2007
- I might upgrade to Windows 2008

Out of this, is there known problem/issue with 64 bits Windows 2003 OS?

MSSQL 2005 + Windows 2003 Standard X64

Jun 4, 2008

I've got MSSQL 2005 Enterprise running on Windows 2003 Standard R2 x64. The server has 12GB RAM.

Now, I've been trying to find some way to monitor how much RAM MSSQL takes up, but found two conflicting things.

One source says that MSSQL 2005 Enterprise can only use up to 4GB RAM on Windows Standard R2 x64. Another says Microsoft changed this to 32GB for Windows Standard R2 x64 only (i.e. not x86).

Could anyone confirm either of these? I'd find out myself if I knew how I could see how much it's using (it only shows 90mb in taskmanager).

How To Change The Default Datetime Format For Windows Server 2003 Standard

Feb 27, 2008

how to change the default or the master datetime format for Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition.

My problem is as such.

- Have installed Coldfusion 5.0 on a Windows 2003 Server and have configured the part on the Web service extensions.

- One of the coldfusion program/application that is needed to be migrated from another server which is running Windows 2000.

- Encountered problem such as the datetime that is passed to the application when clients view on their workstations is different.

- My program take in dd/MM/yyyy but however it seems like the server is always default to M/d/yyyy or MM/dd/yyyy.

So, how can i change the default setting so that it will apply to the user account IUSR or across all accounts that is used on the server?

Plesk 11.x / Windows :: External Services - Error Validating License

When I attempt to go to Tools & Settings > External Services > View Services I am redirected to [URL] .... where the page attempts to load for around 2-3 minutes at which point I receive the error :

"Error: Error validating license."

I have checked the logs and event viewer but see no warnings or errors related to the issue. As far as I can tell it is a problem on Plesks side as it seems that the handoff from my panel is already done.

95% Billing -- Is There A Standard Method

Sep 5, 2007

I just got hit with a whopping bill by my provider, and noticed they charged almost twice the bandwidth I was showing in my Cacti graphs.

I looked at the graphs they provided, and it seems that rather than averaging in/out bandwidth on the swich port, as the default Cacti installation does, they were treating in and out as separate switchports and totalling the bandwidth (at least I think that's what's going on).

Just wondering if this is a standard practice among providers. Attached are my and my provider's graphs.

I've been with these guys for years and never had this problem, until I had a big spike in incoming bandwidth which apparently skewed the usage. Prior to this, overrage charges have always matched bw shown in my Cacti graphs.

Hosts Providing WHM As Standard Feature

May 25, 2009

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.

Vps Host Using Non-standard Ports For Webmail

Nov 2, 2009

I have been having consistent problems with my VPS where I can't access my webmail from public WiFi areas (coffee shops etc). Tonight it happened at a hotel wifi area; my web host had me telnet using ports 2082 2083 and 2086 which all failed. My web host says the ports for webmail are 2095 and 2096 which also failed and often non-standard ports are blocked.

Is this correct? I travel a lot so not being able to access my mail is a big problem. This is a VPS problem as it happens to all domains hosted on the VPS. What are my options? I have a lot of other webmail services (separate from this vps) that I never have trouble with.

Paging File Win 2003 Standard

Jan 30, 2008

What setup would be right (as far as paging file goes) for running game servers on a dedicated box.

core2duo 2ghz
300Gb HD
Windows Server 2003 Standard

Right now it says it has 1512 MB allocated for the paging file. Just seems to me that programs would run better with a smaller paging file.

This is my first Windows server i have always used unix for a dedicated box so i dont have a clue how these settings such as page file affects a server.
