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?
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.
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.
I am going to buy my own server and colocate this at a data center. This server is going to only host one website with Mysql as backend database. I notice there are 3 different Windows 2003 server, Web, Standard and Enterprise. I am leaning toward the Standard version. Can I use Window 2003 Standard Edition to run my the web server?
our collocation provider don't sell SPLA windows server licenses and I need to setup a dedicated server with Windows Web Edition, so I'm now looking where can I buy the license for this server, can you tell me who can sell me this kind of license?
We are in need of one windows servers with windows web or standard edition with atleast 5 RDP logins, i came to know from company that we have to pay for additional logins, the number of logins provided will be only 2 per server, is it true.
Other company says that we can create any number of user inside the server and access the server via RDP
I use Windows Plesk v 11.5.30 with Mailenable Standard Edition 7.0 version. In mailenable site i saw a new version of Mailenable standard version (7.5.1). URL...Can i download and update Mailenable version of my Windows PLesk? If i made this change and have problem can i do downgrande later?
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.
I got new server for free image hosting services, I was reading up about lite speed and it seems faster for this type of need however i do not have money to buy enterprise edition now, standard edition which is free but it says only 150 concurrent connection, means i can't have more than 150 ppl viewing a image? please advice or do stick with our great Apache which free
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.
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 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.
to ship 2 machines to LINX and DECIX from the US, and obviously need either adapters or just new cables. I'm just not certain what plug type is used at both or either location. I guess I'm looking for information similar to like what we have here in the US (NEMA 1-15 or NEMA 2-20).
