Hello. I owned a VPS not long ago, and hosted my WordPress enabled site on there. I used approximately 9 plugin's, all of which are very low-usage and mainly used for the backend. I noticed during every day use the VPS slowed down, is this due to the WordPress script or the VPS itself?
The VPS had 1024mb RAM (1531mb burst), and equal share CPU.
I don't own the VPS now, but would appreciate some answers as I may buy a new one soon to host the same type of site.
What I did here was create /var/log/mysqld.slow.log for queries that are taking one second or longer. After around 36 hours, here is what I came up with. Since the file size of /var/log/mysqld.slow.log was 219KB, posting it in its entirety it not practical. Therefore, I used a program, the perl script known as mysql_slow_log_parser found on www.retards.org, to parse the mysqld.slow.log to make it easier to interpret and read. The result was that the original filesize of 219KB was converted to the smaller size of 14KB....
I`ve got a problem with plesk when hosting Wordpress, when using Wordpress navigating between the pages (front-end and back-end) server time seems to be 15 sec.I`ve checked CPU usage and that stays under 5%.
When I install Drupal or Concrete5 or any other application that uses PHP with MYSQL it runs very fast.I`ve already fine-tuned PHP / Apache2 / Nginx & Mysql to get the max possible performance out of it.
What i`m using for hardware: i7 920 2.6Ghz 24GB Ram LSI Raid controller 9260-8i RAID 10, 6 WD Black disks (internal speed goes about 450mb/sec) RAID 1, 2 x Samsung SSD Evo 840
Software: ESXI 5.5, optimised for maximum performance. (no standard config) PLESK VM has 8 cores, 16GB Ram and I/O access priority set to max.
If I move the PLESK VM to the SSD datastore it makes no difference.Again, the problem only happens when i`m installing Wordpress..I Also did a manual install of Wordpress, same issue..I`m going to try the older version of Wordpress (3.9) so see i`m having the same problems..Using the latest plesk 12 on Ubuntu 14 with trail license at the moment.
I've got 25 domains on a Virtuozzo/Plesk8.6/CentOS5 VPS. Each domain has one up-to-date install of WordPress, most have very little traffic (average 200mb per month), maybe 2 domains get 5-7gb traffic per month.
I monitor port 80 connections and rarely see more than 10 at a time. That should in my opinion be no problem at all for a VPS with 768mb guaranteed ram and 2.4ghz cpu. I've got 30gb hard drive spare too.
But.... about 8 or 10 times a day it grinds to a complete halt: server load at 500-1000%, sites timing out, plesk takes 3mins to load, often I can't even connect with SSH, and the plesk web server, apache
80 seconds sounds like a huge amount of time for a MySQL insert to me! Does anyone know if this is likely to be the cause of my trouble? Some problem with Plesk and the database? Or could it be something else?
I was wondering I've been having problems with getting my web server going.
I'm using Apache 2 on my Windows XP SP2 machine. I have a Linksys WRT54GX2 router, and I have Charter 3MB Cable internet. I already called charter to see if they allowed web servers and they said they do. I also asked if they block ports, and they said they don't.
Now my problem... So, I originally thought maybe charter blocked port 80, so I used NO-IP to work around that, I did port forwarding through that. Well, I used there tool canyouseeme.org and it said it couldnt read any ports i put in.
All my firewalls were off and i had my router firewall off. I even put my computer in the DMZ part of my router. I'm about to see if i can connect my modem directly to my computer without having a problem but i wasn't able to a bit ago. Anyone got any clues to waht i could do if nothing changes when i put my modem to my computer.
I tried everything, nothing seems to work. I was in IIS for a good 2 hours on my windows box trying to figure out how to setup an FTP on a specific directory. Whats a good program to use for a windows FTP to easily setup a read only FTP. I just want to be able to allow me and my friends to grab the files out of one specific directory.
I am trying to customize the knoppix CD so that the SSH server can be started while the system has been booted up. I've tried to install the service and setup the appropriate run level (update-rc.d) but still the SSH daemon couldn't be started up automatically. I had to start it up manually while the system is booted up. I have an idea is to put the startup command in the /etc/rc.local, but not sure if that would work, but I prefer to start it up from the run-level. And what about the /etc/inittab, any idea on that?
Hey heres what happens when i do a traceroute to amazon - over a maximum of 30 hops:
11 33 ms 35 ms 36 ms ae-7.ebr3.Atlanta2.Level3.net [22.214.171.124] 12 58 ms 53 ms 54 ms ae-2.ebr1.Washington1.Level3.net [126.96.36.199] 13 53 ms 53 ms 53 ms ae-81-81.csw3.Washington1.Level3.net [188.8.131.52 38] 14 47 ms 48 ms 47 ms ae-3-89.edge1.Washington1.Level3.net [184.108.40.206 4] 15 * * AMAZONCOM.edge1.Washington1.Level3.net [220.127.116.11] repo rts: Destination net unreachable.
Is there a way my server unreachable without installing a hardware firewall?
I did have a chance to really talk with the owner, Navid on the issues I did have and on what was really going on. One of the things I did have trouble was downtime, and I was assured no more of this, and latest news on what was going on.
Some of the new things they're doing - New support staff, and more - New servers from DC (Databank?) (which i'll be moved too ;]) - Less or No downtime at all; and total care support - More support options
and the results are being seen, they immediately solved all my issues hopefully I won't run into them, but dear members who read this, as a owner; I've decided to go sole proprietorship and work sales, support, billing; all from my blackberry and cell phone around the clock, and downtime is the last thing I can have. Currently I have over 125 accounts and being one of the top free hosts, and clients new to the web = lots of questions. So uptime and reliability from a powerful host is needed. I thank BuyAVPS for making the turnarounds and though they've been only for 1 year, they're one of the rare hosts with the right price and great deals.
I must say, they're support team is fabulous and has been helping me out constantly, from installing scripts to great support and now they're offering more support options.
I've been with them for now 3-4 months, or maybe more I've signed up when they started; and they're coming a long way now and soon to be one of the best vps hosts.
I am executive director of a non-profit organization. As part of our mission, we publish a monthly peer-reviewed academic journal. We receive from 70-100 submissions per month, each which must be reviewed by experts. I am interested in moving the entire peer-review process onto a secure website and need some advice. Here are our needs.
1. Run 10-20 independent peer-review sessions simultaneously.
2. Assign between 3-7 reviewers to individual discussion "rooms" for participation in the peer-review process. The editor must be able to monitor and manage the discussion process.
3. Upload a PDF version of a submitted article into a specific "room" for review.
4. Assign a unique user name that will allow each reviewer to remain anonymous during the review process.
5. Reviewers discuss the merit of the article in a blog format.
6. Close the review session down after one week (no more access). When the room is reopened for another article and new group of reviewers, it would have to be done so with new security settings (i.e. people participating in previous reviewers could no log on and access the same or other rooms at a later date).
7. Compile/summarize the discussion thread and send it to the author.
I was thinking that what we need is basically to set up individual blogs with security settings. However, there may be other better ways to go. I don't know. The most important thing is that the "discussion rooms" would be short-lived, would have a limited number of participants (3-7 plus editor), and a limited number of posts. Submitted articles are between 150-500KB and would be taken down off the site once the review session is closed.
I am having trouble determining what our needs will be for this project in terms of storage space, bandwidth, security requirements, etc. Although we want an attractive site, this will not be for public access. The most important design factors therefore are ease of use, functionality, and reliability.
Its quite a 'powerful' one (Q6600, 2GB, 2x160GB). It will be running Windows Server 2003 Standard edition.
I would also like to make a test 2003 installation on the server itself and most likely a Linux Ubuntu) installation too.
Now VPS looks good, but I have some questions about it.
- Can I run 2003 (virtual in VPS) with the same SPLA license?
- Is it possible to give the power of one core of the CPU (since I got four) to a VPS? (so it doesn't stress other cores)
- For example, I host an application on port 5000 (random chosen ) on the non-VPS system, is it possible to host the same application in the VPS system on the same port with an other IP address assigned to it?
- Whats the best (free if possible, shouldn't have many options (just an on/off switch )) way to make a VPS in Windows?
- Is it a problem with servers of these days to push the 'maximum' (or like 80%) out of the network connection (a gigabits or 100MBits)? Are the server response response times (pings) acceptable for gaming when its under such a load?
Let's say you ordered new server,do you make active same moment(install httpd server and all other components)or you running test before like memory and hardware test? If yes,which programs you would recommend to test fully hardware?
I have a VPS with Linux and 128 MB RAM and the Control Panel is an Interworx one. Backups are made with SiteWorx (a panel within NodeWorx, and only visible one for Shared Host customers).
- The VPS is working properly the whole day;
- The content of my VPS (besides the necessary software) is a PHPBB 3.0.0 forum that is heavily visited. Its subject is World of Warcraft, a popular MMORPG;
- Making a backup is successful, and I am reported by the system that way by an e-mail which also reaches me;
- Shortly after that my VPS crashes and stays offline, until I can restart it or my webhost notices that it is offline. NodeWorx and SSH are inaccesible. As soon as I can access the SSH I can restart MySQL server and everything is working properly again.
I suspect that 128 MB RAM is too little for my VPS backups.
if I co-located in a 44U cabinet and I loaded it with 44 X 1U Rackmount servers so that the entire cabinet was full. Would all my servers fail/crash from touching one another due to over heating? Or would you say typically in a cooled datacenter with a hot and cold row setup this would not beca problem. The datacenter will let me add more amps per cabinet but their cabinets are only 44U. Has anyone attempted to do this? I hear rackable systems can do it but I plan on using 1u supermicro servers.
I 'just ordered a dedi server; they rung me to confirm the order and told me my server would be ready in few hours, but later asked me send copies of my debit card and passport which I refused to do as i never did this before, especially, here, in the UK
I recently upgraded my Apache 2.2.22 installation on Win 8.1 to 2.4.9, making all necessary changes (I believe) to the conf files. I am puzzled that two files in the format authdigest_shm.xxxx now appear in my logs directory when the server is restarted. (Edit: there is also no httpd.pid file)I assume this is to do with running digest authentication, but is a new phenomenon since the upgrade.what conf file setting(s) have I screwed up?!
I've spent the last several months working on a huge upgrade of a couple dozen websites. The upgrades include modifying Apache so that visitors who arrive at links pointing to mysite/World/New_York are redirected to mysite/world/new-york. In other words, all my links now default to lower case, and underscores are replaced with dashes.
Unfortunately, publishing it has been an endless series of disasters. My websites are now all crashed, and the server is unbelievably slow. It takes pages forever to load (if they load at all), and I can scarcely publish files online.So the following notice sent to me by my webhost got my attention.
IT appears your own server IP is making GET requests to Apache, causing excessive loading and causing service failures. On today's date, your IP made almost 6,000 connections to Apache:<br><br>
Is it possible to make these two work together? I can't seem to find any way to let Apache read /home/<username>/public_html without disabling selinux entirely.
I know you can do "chcon -t httpd_sys_content_t -R $HOME/public_html", but it seems like it would be a pain when adding users, especially if someone decides to delete their public_html and make a new directory.
Is it possible to create an exception to let httpd do whatever it wants?
Currently Plesk only has the ability to make a full backup of the data. Now, this is quite an issue since I have accounts on my server that are over 280GB. Making a full daily backup of that and allowing clients to have a history of 10 days, isn't viable.
Is there perhaps a way one can make differential backups?
I have a Cloud VPS with 1and1 and Plesk is installed on it. I happen to have a VPS view that doesn't include DNS functionality for the domains.
So, i have added domain to the system, create an email address... because i dont see on how i can manage DNS settings I have set up cloudflare and pointed domain to the cloudflare and cloudflare is pointing to server.
so I have email: email@example.com
on cloudflare i have: A domain @ IP A www @ IP CNAME mail @ domain MX 10 mail.domain
In plesk i have set up an alias, mail.domain for domain, that has access to email.
I go to the network-tools.com to look up firstname.lastname@example.org: [Resolving mail.domain...] [Contacting mail.domain [IP]...] [Timed out]
I'm setting up a SAAS service which is built on top of Laravel. To put it simply the service itself knows whether its being called from a sub.example.com or just example.com and serves a correct response accordingly. So going to sub.example.com will use the same index.php file as example.com but the routes and controllers within the application will provide a different response. sub.example.com will show a tenant login page where as example.com will show a new tenant subscription page or something else.
So when someone new subscribes I add a new entry to the database with a subdomain name for them and when a request comes from that subdomain and they are logged in it will show them their information. Easy right.
There is a problem though with setting it up with Plesk. When I add a wildcard subdomain, it will look for /subdomains/sub/ for the files which is a bit problematic since I want it to serve the files from the same place as the domain example.com.
Is there a way to configure that so that regardless of the subdomain it will try and serve the exact same content as my main domain?
