I have a busy dating website with 30 000 registered users and ~200-600 users online all the time. I would like to offer free email with ~10 MB mailbox to all users.
I have an idea to use scripts provided by b1gmail.de. Its similar to Hivemail or Socketmail. It uses only one POP3 catch-all mailbox and stores all emails in MySQL database, including attachments.
My worries are about MySQL. If I have 30 000 users and each user has some 5000 messages in his/her mailbox: 30 000 x 5 000 = 150 000000
That's 150 million rows in one table!
I know, not all users will have 50000 messages in their mailboxes, but the number of users increases about +2000/month.
I can't imaggine how long time will need MySQL to find messages for each user in the table with 150 000000 rows.
I don't know - maybe it's not a problem at all. I just never had such large tables and I don't know if it's possible at all.
Another problem: I have Fedora Core 2 installed and even don't know yet if it supports files larger than 2 GB.
Maybe it's better to set-up normal POP3 mailboxes for all users instead of using one catch-all box and storing data in MySQL?
do not post warnings about spammers. In the beginning I'll provide email addresses only to "gold" members. I opened this thread because I don't want to set-up a system which will hang after a couple of months because MySQL will not be able to handle it or I will have other unknown problems.
I am finishing up on my clients site and the ecommerce software we use has an option for search engine friendly URL's but your server must support $_SERVER['PATH_INFO'] . My client is hosted by GoDaddy and my host (HostGator) does not support it unless you go dedicated.
I need $_SERVER['PATH_INFO'] Dedicated IP, PHP, MySQL, .htaccess support preferably CPanel - not Plesk Less than $120 / year
I am looking for a well established company like the ones I previously mentioned because my client wants peace of mind and I don't want to screw him over.
I'm looking for low cost VPS service that supports the following:
1. Can be used to setup as a VPN (virtual private network) server. 2. Can be used to setup as an IRC server. 3. Host one or a few small websites that are mostly static, and serves no more than 1000 page view daily impression. 4. Host email POP3/SMTP services 5. Physically located in the U.S., Japan, or Korea 6. Linux platform
The VPN and IRC service will be used by a private group of no more than 20 people. So does email. The server itself will serve as a gateway for us to work together, and maybe serve as a test platform. The services won't be open to the public. The IRC server will be for chatting only, and it won't be used for file distributing. There will be no P2P or illegal file sharing involved. We expect space usage of less than 5GB, and monthly bandwidth usage less than 200GB.
I'm still not sure which virtualizer is better between Xen and OpenVZ.
I'm desperately looking for a dedicated host that supports/guarentees that bridged networking VMware workstations will work on their network. Reason being is Zenix5ive bridged our VMware workstations fine with external IP addresses perfectly but their service is terrible! So I'm looking for a provider with a much faster network that supports bridged networking, and they know for a fact it works because I'm tired of paying money to do trial and error on whether it works or not!
If anybody uses bridged networking on their VM's and their network is fast please let me know which provider you use...
I have a video site (just embedding) that is pretty small right now. I do not need a dedicated server just yet.
I am currently using westhost and they do not support the typical suite of video software needed to convert videos to flvs. I would like to know if there are any reliable hosts with good support that offer installation of the following software on a shared vps:
I want to be able to clone a existing virtual machine image(whether it's openvz or xen) and deploy it.
It's sort of like Amazon EC2.
I want to set up a virtual machine image once. Then deploy it(it doesn't matter whether it's on the same physical machine or not) to a new machine or overriding existing image on a existing machine. It's fine that the VPS provider charge me a monthly charge for every virtual machine I deploy.
This way, I only need to maintain one master virtual machine. It'd be even better if I can export a image to my own machine, modify it locally, then upload it for deployment.
I had configured webserver on one of my CentOS server. It worked fine for few months but after sometimes it started giving problem. I was not able to browse website. The I found that it was timing out so I increased timeout period from php and the website started working.
But still the website is taking 30-35 seconds to load. I checked the server but I couldn't find any solution. Please guide me to get this resolved.

I have an Ubuntu server and have installed AMP. The server is behind a router (2wire).
I have a static IP address which i use for the webserver. I have enabled the router firewall to allow all the typical webserver ports. When I am on the network (in the vicinity of the network) i am able to connect wirelessly to the server via ssh and also access the domains via my web browser.
But when i connect to the net via another router I am unable to gain ssh access or access the websites from a browser.
When i initiate a connection with putty all i get is a black screen and when i connect to the website i get
The operation timed out when attempting to contact www.globalexpatservices.com.
I only know a little bit about ports and web-servers, I'm going to try to attempt to setup a home webserver with Ubuntu, I am curious would I need to point ports 80 and 21 (http and ssh) to my machines internal IP address, also what is a proxy and how do I know if i'm using one.
traffic has been surging lately and is expected to continue surging. i am already on the fastest chipset my webhost has.
current configuration single server (centos), webserver (apache), single filesystem. many dynamic pages (perl script) but no mysql database. no php.
ideal configuration multiple webservers (apache), single file system.
assuming my scripts do not write to the filesystem (read only), what do i need to install or do in order to send a request for www.domain.com to server1.domain.com or server2.domain.com or server3.domain.com according to the load of each? it should look the same at the front end. anyone know what i need to get?
