How Do I Create A User With Limited Permission

Oct 5, 2007

I used to create a user by using /usr/sbin/sysinstall in freebsd, but how do i limit that user so he can't view important files (like: dhcpd.conf, rc.conf....) or can't do such as command pico, nano, vi ...etc?

All i want is that user can log in to my freebsd box and then he will ssh to other local servers, I just want my freebsd box is a bridge/gate for him to ssh to local servers which behind that freebsd box. Is it possible ?Thanks.

I know that i have to create a group with has only ssh permission but how do i do that?

How To Create An FTP Account With Limited Access

May 27, 2008

I want to create a special FTP account as such:

- The user would only be able to view and upload to one directory, such as

- The user would only be able to upload .jpg files, no code/php/html or anything, just jpg pictures.

- There would be a limit of upload. (ie. only 50 MB of upload per day)

- The user would only be able to delete the files that he uploaded. (or the user would only be able to view the files he uploaded)

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: API Create Subscription Failed - Permission Denied 1006

Sep 8, 2014

We have a little issue with the API, when we want to add an subscription, then we became "Error: Permission denied. (1006)" - but the subscription was added. The status Icon of the Subscription is a "!" and they say (tooltip), that the Plan wasn't correctly synchronized, but we don't use a Plan for this. The Reseller has all rights, there are now limits.

I have test this with the following Code:

<packet version=""><webspace><add><gen_setup><name></name><owner-login>123login!</owner-login><htype>vrt_hst</htype><ip_address></ip_address></gen_setup><hosting><vrt_hst><property><name>ftp_login</name><value>blubb</value></property><property><name>ftp_password</name><value>blubb123</value></property><ip_address></ip_address></vrt_hst></hosting><limits><limit><name>disk_space</name><value>1000</value></limit></limits></add></webspace></packet>

For the execution is used the SDK from [URL] ....

I don't know when we had this problem the first time, but i know that if had worked in Plesk 12 correctly - i think the problem came up with the last 4 - 6 MU.

We actually have Plesk 12.0.18 Update #16 and running it on Debian 6.0.9.

Apache :: FTP Accounts And User Permission?

Feb 20, 2014

My apache VPS is having a minor problem.

Using SSH, I gave permission to my FTP username with code below:
chown -R user:ftpgroup /home/site

But my WP theme needs to set up that user I use is rewritable and use this code:
chown -R www-data:www-data /home/site

MY PROBLEM: I need my FTP to able to write cause i use plugin to create backup and change plugin. My theme also need for both to work.

I can't seem to make run together. I can change group or FTP as long as I can have m WP working.

Limited Or No Connectivity

Mar 11, 2008

im trying to remotely install WS2003 EE R2 on a dedicated server I have purchased and have an issue. I'm installing it via KVM IP which is cool

however, after installing the network card drivers, I get a "There is no or limited connectivity" etc... so I cannot access the internet or anything on that box.

what do I do from here? how can I make the card work? It is configured to obtain the IP Address automatically as well as using the default DNS. I do have 2 IP Addresses "assigned" to me/my account but dont believe I need to configure them in WS2003?

FragSwitch Limited

Oct 1, 2008

I'm reading a lot of negative experiences here, and of course positive ones as well. When I was looking for a new company to host my website, I had some clear 'demands'.

I'll explain first, I am a player of the MMO EvE online [url] and I'm the CEO of a corporation in that game. For our corporation I wanted to create a portal from which to host all our out of game content. That content includes the usual forum, a killboard, a so called POS tracker, to keep track of fuel levels in our stations, a Shoutcast radio station to provide us with some added entertainment during our gaming, a webmail application to keep in touch with each other and last but not least a teamspeak server so we can chat.

Because it's quite a bit of stuff that I needed hosted and the bandwith some of it swallows up, especially the Shoutcast station that was something I had to look for. I was referred by one of our members to a UK company called FragSwitch Limited [url]. They've got several packages to choose from. I picked their "HARD" package that gives me 5Gb of webspace and 50Gb of traffic, plenty to suit our every need. It's a unlimited package where I can have as many of whatever I want, including e-mail addresses and subdomains. I like cPanel, so any host that uses it gets a plus from me anyway.

I've had my site hosted with them for 3 months now and haven't experienced any downtime, and since the server park is in the UK, lines to at least my country are short and fast, though I haven't heard any of our US based members complain.

So perhaps if you are looking for a complete host, you might wanna look them up, I give them a big thumbs up at least! They may not be the cheapest host out there, but they don't have to be, the service I got when I needed help to set up both my shoutcast and teamspeak servers was excellent and fast and that counts for much more to me.

SSH Connections Limited To 2

May 2, 2008

I signed up for a hosted account with gator and I don't understand something. They tell me it's a policy change for security reasons but the simultaneous SSH connections has been limited to 2. That's just nuts. Is there a real reason why someone would limit this? i need two for editors, one for shell and one for mysql. Minimum of 4. What security concern could cause them to pick 2 as the number?

I just don't get it.

Here's what they said to me.

info: Please wait for a HostGator operator to respond.

Channel Sanderson: Hi. We're working on our website and have run into a small snag. It seems we can only have two open SSH connections at a time this week. We were able to open more a couple weeks ago. Is this something that you can change?

Kella J.: Ok, the issue is.. You are only alllowed 2, no matter what..
Channel Sanderson: I believe we are not understanding each other. We're not trying to connect 10 times in a minute. We just need more connections. 2 is insufficient. We need a minimum of 4 simultaneous connections to our server.

Kella J.: I am sorry, I checked with my admin.. he said there is only a limit of 2, period..

Channel Sanderson: This is an unnecessary limitation in my view and badly limits my ability to do what I need to do.

Hosting With Un(limited) Bandwidth

Sep 16, 2008

I've always used German hosts because they are much cheaper than my homeland Greek alternatives, the latency (70ms Germany vs 30ms Greece) is bearable.

Until recently I used Strato single cpu dedicated servers, which allowed me 2000gb at 100mb/s. Although I came close, I never actually reached that 2000gb allocation.

Ever since moving to 1und1 (to a quad core) the server's speed difference has attracted more visitors and pageviews. Now my bandwidth usage has gone to 3000gb per month and at peak it requires 20-30mb/s.

The problem is that 1und1 limits you to 10mb/s if you go over 1000gb, and then requires 'resetting' it every 250gb in order to get back to 100mb/s speed.

Does anyone know of a european host that offers truly unlimited bandwidth? Every time I hit the 10mb/s limit, my pageviews go down, users leave the site.

I've contemplated writing a simple heartbeat script that polls the control panel every 5 minutes and checks if the limit has been crossed, at which it will automatically reset it for me.

MySQL Server (limited?)

Nov 22, 2007

I heard something about MySQL being a Open source type of software, it lacks certain features that the paid version of MySQL have. Is this true?

For web hosting companies which has MySQL DB, are they using the open source type or the paid version? Does anybody know?

And if they are using the paid version, who are those web hosting companies?
