I want to establish free web hosting site/service. Is there any system available that will automate all registrations and stuff? I'm looking for something like layeredpanel..
Maybe theres anything similar but open source?
I am having issues setting up CloudFlare on out PPA system. I have is setup under Hosted Applications. I have setup a Resource for CloudClare and added it to the service templates. When i go into a clients Control Panel to install the app, I get a couple different errors. When i try to use a previously setup administrator for the subscription, which is listed under "Grant administrative access to existing user," I get the following error:
"Error: Installation of CloudFlare For PA failed. invalid values passed for settings of application resource; details for setting with id 'admin_username': The "CloudFlare username" setting value 'xxxxx' is already in use. Please provide unique value." Is this because I am logged in as the user?
When I create a login under "Use administrative credentials not connected to any particular user," I get the following error: "Error: Installation of CloudFlare For PA failed. Invalid structured output returned by script: Failed to parse structured output. Structured output: '<output xmlns= URL.... WARNING: A connectivity error occurred while contacting the service. WARNING: A connectivity error occurred while contacting the service. WARNING: A connectivity error occurred while contacting the service. WARNING: A connectivity error occurred while contacting the service.'. "
I do get an email from CoudFlare with the setup instructions for the new account.Under the PPA control panel, I am using the IP address for the Management Node in the "POA API IP" field. Is this correct, or should I have entered localhost?I am running 11.5 Update 8, and CloudFlare For PA (3.0.2-18).Setup instructions for Plesk or POA does not quite cover everything for a PPA installation.
Is there a way to set default PHP settings so they apply by default to all websites' custom php.ini file, or even server-wide or system-wide? For example, the timezone? I am using custom builds of PHP 5.5 and 5.6, per the PPA docs, but I found that, contrary to some Plesk (not PPA) documentation, /etc/php.ini is not used. It looks like a set of PHP settings are generated into a php.ini for the vhost, and I can set "Additional Directives" for each website but would prefer to set a system default. For instance, on recent PHP versions not having a timezone set generates a warning in the logs on every PHP execution. I'd also like to enable opcache since we're using FastCGI. So from where does PHP generate the vhost's php.ini?
As an aside, adding an "Additional Directives" entry with this unquoted generated an error and no directives were saved:
date.timezone=America/Chicago Instead, I had to quote it: date.timezone="America/Chicago"
Is it possible to disable the option to change the system user (FTP/SSH) for customers. I can disable this for the control panel user but not the system user (FTP/SSH). Is there any option to do this that I didn't see?
I'm doing some research on offering VPS hosting solutions, nothing firm yet as do we start to offer them or not.
So, what are you experiences for as automated as possible VPS hosting offering? Using multiple servers as VPS hosts etc. ready made images etc.
Or am i better of by doing custom tailored my own?
The basic plan is to offer as automated as possible, with minimal support overhead etc. using 2co/paypal/moneybookers subscriptions etc. basicly as simple, and yet as powerfull as possible. Sounds like custom tailored system is the best option.
How about just the server backend only automation wise?
I have noticed that resellers traffic stats (looks like email) are not being updated and just show 0.
On the server that is for resellers I see there is a file in /usr/local/psa/var/log containing a file mail_traffic_pendings.dat with sender and recipient domain traffic. I presume this has to be processed to go into the database, but obviously it is not. How to debug this issue so that email stats get updated for clients.
I have recently deployed PPA with on nodes with hostnames on the serverroom.net.au domain, so management.serverroom.net.au, mail.serverroom.net.au etc. The DNS is currently hosted on a plesk server which will soon be migrated to PPA.
When I add the serverroom.net.au domain to PPA, I it fails at the sync task with an error saying that there are no A or AAA records for ns1.serverroom.net.au, even when these records exist in the external DNS. The same error occurs when I try to add the domain as a dns entry and switch to internal...
i have installed a Win2008R2 server with IIS and Coldfusion. I want to allow customer to set DSN, i know that older "Plesk Panel" versions that can do but i missing this now in PPA in the customer view. In the subscription is OBDC and Coldfusion connections allowed and unlimited. Must i do anything to activate this ?
We operate many Plesk VPS servers in a virtual environment for our customers and would really like the ability to allow Plesk VPS servers to switch to using our PPA DNS servers instead of having to have multiple ips on each VPS to run their own name servers. Not to mention the added nuisance of each customer having to register name servers and glue records.
We looked at adding the Plesk servers as nodes to our PPA cluster but the license jump and loss of Nginx is completely prohibitive. Is this possible?
We currently have Plesk Expand 2.3.2 with 3 Linux servers, 1 Windows server, a SmarterMail server and 2 DNS servers that we are looking to migrate to PPA 11.5. I have the PPA working okay and am trying to test out a migration on just one domain from one of the Linux servers. When I run the preliminary check I keep getting this error:
Error: Mail content transfer from Qmail/Postfix to SmarterMail mail service is not supported.
Assign this subscription to a service template which offers Postfix mail service. We aren't using Qmail or Postfix for user mailboxes in the Expand or PPA systems, only the SmarterMail. I've tried the work around listed here: [URL] .... but that didn't work.
Am I still going to have to assign Postfix to my Service Templates in PPA even if we're not planning on using it for mailboxes?
Some of our clients have alot of webspaces (resellers that migrated from Expand) and having to order the list of webspaces each time they want to move to another domain is causing them some hassle. Is there a way to set the webspaces to order by name by default?
I just noticed that in our first zone, every record has a TTL of 900. All three nameservers in our system are handing out the same incorrect TTLs (easily visible via AXFR, and expected since two are slaves). Operations > Customers > Customer > Domains > domain shows every record in this zone has a TTL of 42300. The DNS resource's Activation Parameters and zone's SOA are set as follows:
Refresh 43200 Retry 600 Expire 2419200 Min TTL 900 Default TTL 43200 (for the resource; not editable for the zone)
PPA seems to be silently using the Min TTL to override the zone records that it shows with the desired TTL on screen. Changing the Min TTL in the SOA for a zone changes the TTL of all records.
This zone has both template-generated and manual records.
We are having an issue with websites randomly getting disabled within our PPA system. There doesn't seem to be any reason why they are getting disabled. Our PPA is not tied to a billing system that would make them shut off. Turning them back on works fine but it shouldn't be just shutting them off.
