Zeus Server - Developing For

Mar 22, 2007

I cannot find a suitable forum for this query so here goes on this one!

I am doing a charity site as a voluntary exercise. They currently host with Eclipse who have the Zeus server (site developed in Frontpage).

This is not an open source server. Thing is, what are the issues of say developing on my loacal machine (apache or IIS5) and having the remote being Zeus. I use Dreamweaver 8 for developing.

I would of thought this does not matter as the server technology is transparent and down to configuration files. The directory structure both ends can be the same.

Zeus Based Server - Any Disadvantage

Apr 7, 2008

Few things I found that :

- they do not support mod_rewrite so that url cannot be rewritten or something like it

- they do not support unlimited subdomains, I do not mean actually unlimited, but 100 or 200 (eg. you allot usera.yoursite.com to some 200 or 500 members of your site) should not be a taboo, but Zeus administrator seems to think that can be a resource issue

- addition of space, currently apache hosts seem to be very liberal, and zeusbased ones not so, does zeus server typically still run on hard drives with lesser space

Anyone has any recommendation for Zeus, and if so, any recent experience with such host, who has been in business for last 8-10 years and also runs a support forum on their site where users freely communicate?

Domain Name Server (DNS) Type Questions

Oct 8, 2007

I'm rather new to hosting so I still don't get everything, but maybe you can help me. I am hosting a web page on a computer that is hooked into the same network as my personal computer. They are both hooked into an openBSD router, which has the connection to the internet. My recently purchased domain name is set to forward all requests directly to the computer with the website on it (named 'b2.') When you visit the domain from an outside computer it does this just fine, but when you try to access it from one of the computers on my network it does not work. From my computer you can not access the website from the domain, but you can still access it just straight through the local network (i.e. typing 'b2' directly into the address bar ) From the computer which is actually the host to the website, it is accessible neither way, though the local network option was working before. Does anyone know what the problem is and how I can fix it? Keep in mind that I really only understand the basics of web hosting, and terminology and stuff.

OpenVZ Questions

Sep 23, 2007

I am aiming to offer VPS based on OpenVZ. Have some questions, please help to answer

- in OpenVZ, is there any monitor script, that will release an email to say one VPS is down? Or will I need to use external monitoring?

- can I do the backup / restore of full VPS within OpenVZ? Can customers do it themselves?

- how hard to change the VPS configuration? For example, upgrading from 256MB RAM to 512MB RAM, or adding more CPU, space...?

- how about the IP control in OpenVZ? Let's say each VPS will have 2 IPs, so to prevent customers adding more IPs, I will need to setup VLAN, is that correct? How hard is it in OpenVZ?

- how about the ideal hardware for running OpenVZ? Saying SATA, or SCSI disks, how many RAM... for example

Few Questions About Tektonic

Dec 26, 2008

I have a few questions about tektonic, I talked to their costumer service but maybe you guys out of experience can tell me a bit more.

Also if anyone knows of a XEM server that is located near Atlanta, that provides the same as TekTonic I would appreciate the info. and if anyone has one of those lifetime promo codes, that would be apprecialoved.

ok I plan to get 2 VPS from tektonic ( this is my top choice so far ) I want to have one 100% dedicated on the intranet for MYSQL, the other for apache and all the other stuff you know.

I also Need cpanel to move things around, so I need that one ( however someone told me I can buy a cpanel license separately )

ok I am going for the 294MB one for the Mysql and the 1178MB one for the apache and all that.

they say that they warantee the CPU 2.6GHZ on the 294MB one and 7.x GHZ on the 1178MB one, is this for real they really guarantee this CPU, or that's what you can burst.

the costumer service guy told me that CPU is guaranteed, and you can't burst, however they work on virtuosso and all virtuosso VPS I have worked do allow bursts, I would like to know from experience how fast are those servers processing, I mean for real.

because if I get 300MHZ of CPU and I can burst to 2.6GHZ, that would suck because I already have CPU intensive apps on my other VPS, and I plan to move.

Static Routes Questions

May 18, 2007

I have a small network at my colo provider.

Colo Provider
My HP 2650
| |
server1 serverN

I want to setup static routes on my servers so that my colo provider won't bill me for traffic among my servers.

I use FreeBSD 6 on my servers. I read the FreeBSD handbook on this and it looks like i should do this:

route add -net 0.0.0/24

where 0.0.0/24 is the C class I have from my provider and is the IP address of my server (one of them/any of them).

However, this route appears to already exist as i get this error when running that route command:

route: writing to routing socket: File exists
add net 0.0.0: gateway route already in table

Do I need to use a non-routeable ip block (eg 192.168.x.x) for this? Can I use "real"/routeable ips? Does FreeBSD take care of this for me automatically?

Dedicated Hosting, Sites And Questions

Nov 13, 2006

Hi I've never worked with a dedicated host, and I was considering going with hostgator, because they provide managed hosting and cPanel, which I'm fond of.

This is not for my own sites, but for someone I work for as a programmer/webmaster. He has asked that I make the decision on this, even though I've basically advised against it, due to my lack of experience with dedicated hosting.

I've also looked at lunarpages, doesn't seem to be much different than hostgator. Here are links to their pages...



Does anyone have experience from either of these? I don't think the sites hosted on the server are going to be particularly high bandwidth sites (I don't really think they even need a dedicated host) ... do you think we'll be okay with a single 2.8 Ghz processor?

Also, does anyone have any advice as far as the number of sites hosted on the server? He wants to move ALL of them to the same server. Any thoughts on whether or not this is a good idea?

I know I've asked a lot here but I'm really getting into new territory. If you can provide any input on ANY of the above items, I'd greatly appreciate it.

ADULT Hosting - A Few Specific Questions

Nov 13, 2008

I had a few specific questions about ADULT hosting. I've been refining an idea I had for an adult website after getting some good feedback from this site, but I had a few specific questions I still need addressed. If you think this forum is the wrong place to be asking about this, do you happen to know of any other forums that specialize in discussing adult web hosting?

My general plan is to set up a video-based adult site that charges people money (a monthly fee) to see the premium content. I have a general idea about my start-up investments, but not necessary how much each would cost, and I'm trying to put together a budget. If anyone could help me fill in some of these blanks I would really appreciate it!!

I'll need a lawyer to set up site disclaimers, contracts, etc. - I assume this will be a few hundred dollars - does this sound correct?

I need to build the site- this is where I'm not sure about costs. The general specifications are like any other adult website - users pay to register - so I would go with one of the established companies that deals with secure online credit card transactions - any ideas which ones are good? How much do they normally take?

Users then can watch the videos, rate and give feedback. Since I don't really know any programming besides HTML, I'm assuming I need to hire someone to build the site and make sure it is secure. I'm also assuming this will be the most expensive part of the investment. Can someone give me some estimates about this? Are there general templates online that I can use that will save money? Is guru.com a trusted place to hire programmers? Is this something I could do myself without spending years learning a new programming language? How DO I make the site secure, and how can I keep people from stealing my premium content and posting it on other sites? I'm obviously trying to make this as cheap as possible without sacrificing all the quality - but unfortunately I have thousands to invest and not tens of thousands (i don't know if this will be a problem or not).
Also - hosting. I was told that a popular adult video site will cost a fortune in bandwidth. If I'm charging a monthly membership fee I'm hoping that can offset the costs. Can someone recommend good, scalable adult video hosting - and give me a general idea about what kind of server I need, how much bandwidth etc. I figure since this is membership driven I can start small and then increase bandwidth depending on how many members join, so I'm always making a profit. Does that sound realistic?

Finally, can adult pay sites still make money today? Not just a couple bucks here and there, but enough so I can eventually quit my day job?

The wonderful feedback I got here before helped me to reshape my ideas, and now I'd like to begin the next steps. Thank you all very much again for ANY help you can give me - I sincerely appreciate all the generous, knowledgeable people that make this forum a pleasure to visit!

Theprimehost Does Not Respond To My Pre-sales Questions

Dec 18, 2007

I recently contacted 'theprimehost' with some pre-sales questions about their service.

However I received no replies, so posted on their forums in hope to get a reply from Darrell. However I found that the thread was removed. The questions I asked were as below:

1. Can I host MODx/Textpattern on Primehost space?
2. Do I get access to mod_rewrite / SSH with your account? (As an individual and as reseller)
3. How much do you charge for a dedicated IP?
4. Do you oversell or allow overselling with reseller accounts? How is the bandwidth calculated?
5. How can I monitor the uptime of your servers?
6. Is domain alias enabled?
7. Does mail enable me to set vacation auto-replies?
8. How frequently do you backup data?
9. Do you accept payments for 2 years at a time?
10. I didn't find information about your datacenter on the site. Can you please tell me more about it?
11. Can I avail of the 20% discount in addition to the 2 for 1 offer? Till when are these two offers valid?

I wonder why nobody at 'theprimehost' bothered to reply to my queries and deleted the thread so promptly. Anybody knows whats up with the guys? I have seen great reviews about them on the forum so this was unexpected.

I know Darrell is active on this forum - maybe he can clarify...

New Host Questions Icdsoft/medialayer/littleoak

Jun 26, 2008

I'm in a quandary over which host to choose. I've narrowed my choices between the above three. While this can be a subjective decision, I am looking for insight, any opinions and also advice on what to watch out for in deciding the best host for my needs.

Speaking of my needs, its fairly simple I have one site that runs my blog (on movabletype), another site that holds images and such, and a couple of others that I use for hobby/development purposes. All are generally low bandwidth.

I used dreamhost past and got burned by their latency and downtime. So while my needs are meager compared to many others I don't want to sacrifice performance/uptime in the name of saving a dollar.

They all offer money back guarantees so that gives me a chance to play with them but I'd like some advice on what to look out for, advice or other member's experience with them

Littleoak hosting, a small newish hosting company with nearly a rabid following over on the realmacsoftware.com's forums. This is a support forums for rapidweaver which I also use. I cannot install movabletype on this host - tried for 2 days with the help of their support. Finally gave up. If I go with them, I need to convert to wordpress. I do not want to do that just so I can use a new host. They have two packages that could work for me one at 25 dollars a year and another at 80 dollars. Bandwidth and storage are the differences.

Medialayer customer support seems very good, I can run movabletype. Pricing seems a tad high especially given my needs but they offer lots of flexibility and up to 6 domains for one package at 20/mth or 3 domains for 10/mth

ICDSoft top notch support, has a great webmail client (I hate squirrelmail) Little inflexible but nothing that would be a show stopper. I was able to install movabletype, I have yet to fully try it out though. A single domain per account at 6/mth If I have multiple domains it could get pricey.

I'm not sure if it matters but I ping all three sites and medialayer came out on top with 6ms, icdsoft with 13ms and littleoaks with 30ms.

Any thoughts opinions and/or advice regarding these three hosts. I've done enough research and while there may be other fine hosting companies these three are on my short list.

Various Questions: Which Cpanel Tree To Run - When To Update - How To Troubleshoot..

Nov 20, 2007

I have a zone.net VPS with 1152mb of RAM.

I don't resell, I am using the VPS for personal use to run a small vBulletin board (30-60 members on at a time), a Mambo site that is used to aggregate news (12,000 or so news items), and then a couple small personal static sites, and about 25 email addresses.

My VPS has the following versions listed in WHM:

WHM 11.11.0 cPanel 11.15.0-R17853
CENTOS Enterprise 4.5 i686 on virtuozzo - WHM X v3.1

It is currently setup with the default update settings that came when Zone.net set it up, which are:

cPanel/WHM Updates = Manual Updates Only (STABLE tree)
cPanel Package Updates = Automatic
Security Package Updates = Automatic

Question 1:
So, for the type of site I am running, is the stable tree the best? While it is a small vBulletin community, lack of down time is my main goal, so I need to balance getting updates fast enough to keep it secure, but not getting 'bleeding edge' bugs introduced. Which tree is the best balance?

Question 2:
Should I be running automatic updats on cPanel/WHM or keep it manual and check here and other forums for important updates?

Question 3:
I recently had a problem where Horde stopped working. Zone.net's support staff helped me, and suggested two things to attempt to fix it, and this "/scripts/fullhordereset" fixed it. So, since I am new to VPS's and more specifically, working with Linux, how to I learn/research things like this in the future. Should I be checking out forums/communities for each individual app (like Horde), or is there a better option?

Question 4:
Unfortunately, I don't know what I don't know. Such as what tree to run, when to do cPanel updates, when to do Apache updates, how to make sure all my configs are right. Any suggestions on how to both make sure my WHM is configured the best way for my purposes, and more importantly, what is the best way of moving from WHM

Ffmpeg On Shared Server

May 15, 2008

I am developing a phpfox site and in order to use the video capabilities I need a host with ffmpeg installed.

My current host were a bit misleading and let me think I could pay them a small sum to install ffmpeg on a shared server and that would see to it. Turns out I would need to get a dedicated server, which was quite a shock when I saw the price of that.

I would like to know if shared servers with ffmpeg are worthwhile, or is a dedicated server generally regarded as the only way to go?

If success can be achieved with shared hosting, are there any hosting companies that would be recommended. Apthost is a name that seems to crop up quite regularly, but I don't know how to tell a good host from a bad host, so I'm asking you all!

P.S. My bandwidth needs shouldn't be more than 100gb/month at the start, but that is only a rough beginner's guess.

PCI Scanning On A Shared Server (UK)

Aug 23, 2009

Does anyone have experience of PCI DSS scanning on a shared server? Our current hosting company have told us that it's unlikely to pass on a shared server, and that we should move to a Virtual Managed Server for them to make the necessary changes to pass a PCI scan.

In particular, we're talking PCI compliance to use PayPal website payments pro UK.

From Googling there seems to be a lot of debate on this issue - varying from 'all you need for PCI compliance is a SSL certificate' (this seems to be paypals attitude), to 'PCI scans can be passed on a shared server if your host is willing to help' to 'you need separate dedicated servers for the database and site etc'.

Does anyone use website payments pro UK, have a shared server, and regularly pass quarterly PCI scans? Also, we would much prefer a host based in the UK - we seem to get much better performance from our UK host than we did when the site was hosted in the US (our customers are almost completely UK based).

Benchmarking A Shared Server

Jan 23, 2008

I have a dedicated server with a few websites (virtual hosting) and I would like to do some load testing on it to measure what kind of performance I would get.

(This is a dedicated server with shared account not a shared hosting account)

When I browse one site it is fast but I wonder what will happen if 10 people are browsing 8 of the sites etc.

Is there any testing tools (other than Apache Bench) I can run that will test multiple site simultaneously?

Re. Apache Bench - I could run AB on the same server, on another server in the same DC or on another server in a different DC.

Which would me more accurate? Is the network a bottleneck or would the server be the bottleneck?

Also what is a 'good' time-per-request value? I want the websites to be responsive.

Time For A New Shared Server Host

May 21, 2008

I have been with Page-Zone for a couple years now. Just the past year I have had little problems with them.

-For instance once I was trying to update my website and their server went down. I thought it was something on my end so I started trouble shooting it for an hour and then it came back up.

-Another time the users on my website were without e-mail for a week, because they changed IP address.

-And finally the e-mail accounts couldn't receive any e-mails from Comcast, MSN, or Hotmail accounts. So I ended up setting up a Google Aps account for us to use for e-mail.

Granted they are very cheap but I have been having many problems with little support. Also today I just noticed that in the whois it lists Network Solutions as the technical contact. Are these things that I should be looking for a new host for?
