I've just signed up for my first VPS with CMBHosting and the person in charge, Chetan Bakhru, seems like a genuinely nice, friendly and helpful person. In other words this new service look promising at the moment.
When I signed up I selected his CentOS/LXAdmin plan because I figured that with a pre-installed control panel like LXAdmin I could avoid as much ssh as possible and simply get "up and running" more quickly. Plus I have some experience managing my own CentOS development machine, and I know that a special software package I plan to install runs on CentOS "out of the box" -- so I was expecting good things from this new VPS.
But when my account was created LXAdmin did NOT create an FTP admin account for me with root access to my VPS!
Instead it created an account that drops me into web server's document root folder, and this is far too limiting for me. I really need FTP root server access -- and I'm surprised that LXAdmin did not provide this access by default.
Not only that, but it appears that I cannot create a new FTP account that has any deeper access than the existing admin account!
Does anyone with LXAdmin experience know if this is the way LXAdmin normally works by default? Or is this perhaps a special configuration created by my new VPS host?
I noticed, that FTP settings looks there quite.... strange.
I created users (let's say his name is 'usr' with few domains: domain1.com, domain2.com).
I can't just login to ftp using username usr and his pass - I need to create FTP users for all domai names - so, I can't manage more domainnames within one session. It is normal, or maybe I made something wrong - if so, how to fix that.
Does any one know of any link/url to a working demo of LxAdmin? Because LxLabs demo is always out of order I wanted to give LxAdmin a trial before ordering a Xen VPS from VPSLink. It irritates me that LxAdmin demo is never working
which is better, LXAdmin or DirectAdmin? I have decided to sign up with world-of-computing.com. They have a promo code for free DirectAdmin. Should I go for it or use the 25%off promo code? The virtualization technology used is OpenVZ.
Does anyone have any experience with them? I had chatted with a Sales Rep for 45 minutes and he has been really helpful. But I know that support for sales and service is entirely different.
Also which OS should I go for (CentOS4/CentOS5/Fedora7/Debian4/Gentoo4/OpenSuse 10/Ubuntu 8.04)?
How do I uninstall LXAdmin, I got a complete empty VPS with no control panel with it, using Virtuzzo so I decided to install LXAdmin but no longer want it can someone please tell me how I would uninstall it now?
Anyone know the correct way to do this? I've been on here looking at a few threads and on lxlabs forum but my solution can't be resolved. I'm sure its something easy.
I'm migrating from an lxadmin VPS to another lxadmin VPS.
The problem I have is that my IP's for the HOME>DNS TEMPLATE and HOME>IP ADDRESSES are the same as my old VPS.
Now I can change the IP in the DNS template, however under HOME>DNS TEMPLAES>CREATE NEW it doesn't have my NEW VPS IP's listed in the drop-down menu. I read somewhere in an LxAdmin tutorial to update LxAdmin to get your current IP's assoicated with your new VPS. I did this and nothing changed.
In addition to the DNS Templates not being correct, In HOME>IP ADDRESSES it also lists the same OLD VPS IP's. Saw a thread in LxLabs forum with someone that had the same problem. Their help stated to just change the IP ADDRESS to your new one. I would do that but there is no option to allow me to ADD a new IP. Again i'm in HOME>IP ADDRESSES here.
Due to point-1 above, I still can not create a new account based on my lxadmin resouce plan. If no. 1 fixed, what should I fill/choose bellow?
