Apache :: Converting Config From IP Based To Name Based Virtual Hosts

Feb 26, 2015

I have a task of converting a current Win Server based apache server from multiple IP based virtual hosts to a full name based virtual hosting.I'm famiilar with the steps but I was wondering if there are any gotchas in Windows that I should be aware of. It seems that now matter what I change in the new config it doesn't work or work as expected.

After Flush+zero Iptables, Will A New Iptables Ban Work

Jan 5, 2008

I execute the following commands, in the following order:

iptables --flush
iptables --zero
iptables -A INPUT -s -j DROP

will that last command successfully ban that IP until reboot?

If not, what needs to be done? I can't access my site if I don't flush + zero iptables first but I need to be able to ban with iptables.

OpenVZ Max Ram

Sep 17, 2008

I am being told that when a VPS in openvz hits the maximum ram assigned to it that openvz disables that vps.

Isn't the ram limit a hard limit that simply restricts the available ram to that container to XX ram?

Is this normal?

Overselling In OpenVZ

Feb 17, 2009

Just how it actually works? I have a pretty good knowledge about Xen and Linux KVM (somewhat about VMware as well). Prior to joining WHT, I rarely heard about Virtuozzo and OpenVZ.

I'm just interested in RAM usage actually. I also read on some threads that you can oversell storage and net bandwidth as well? That just seems a little weird to me.
I also used a fairly good amount of Solaris Zones as well.

Example, if I have a 8GB box and I leave some, say 512MB, reserved for CT0. 8192-512=7680 (I know the ACTUAL RAM amount will NOT be 8192), that leaves 7680MB use for CTs. So technically in OpenVZ if you dice out dedicated 512MB VEs... you end up with 15 right?

So you are able to sell more than 15 VPSs on a 8GB server box? If also set all burstable RAM to 1GB for all VEs.

In Xen, when you set dedicated RAM it is taken away from dom0, period. That's all there is to it, no oversell (Xen 3.3+ you can use ballooning to overcommit RAM, I know).
Within CT in VZ, user is able to check beancounters to see the guaranteed/burstable RAM. Technically you can't lie to the users.

I researched around... when oversell in VZ and the RAM gets maxed out... VZ will try to slow/stop/kill processes in order to keep the guests happy, to me that's just dangerous. Why needs to kill processes for RAM saturation?

Anyone can shed some lights for me? Or point me to an article(s). It can be technical, I should be able to grasp.

Hypervm And Openvz Vps

Apr 25, 2009

I am trying to create some vps using openvz but after creating the vps with the Centos basic template 304mb i can't ping the ip and i can't view the centos welcome page in my browser (using ip and not domain, so i don't need to change there anything yet) and the most important is that i can't connect to the vps using ssh

I aks for many good users about my problem but i don' found a solution yet.

I ask my DC about ip's and they told me that the ip's are routed in my server.

I follow this instructions:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 50G 2.8G 44G 6% /
/dev/sda3 198M 21M 168M 11% /boot
/dev/sda5 408G 2.4G 385G 1% /vz
tmpfs 1012M 0 1012M 0% /dev/shm

I follow this:

I disable selinux by editing /etc/sysconfig/selinux and changing the line to selinux=disabled
and then run:

I just login using ssh as root and run the folllowing commands.
Did i have to move to another directory to run them or ?

setenforce 0

Next i open /etc/grub.conf
vi /etc/grub.conf
and change default=1 to default=0

Then i add the ip's at the pool and create a plan and then create a vps without any errors but nothing.

I try with my DC resolvers or the but nothing.

I alo add at the settings the gateway with no results at all.

After all i can't ping the ip that the vps got from the pool even ping it and not possible to connect to it using the ssh Sad

When you're creating VPS container, you can ssh with that IP and login with your username and password correct? But, what is the problem when I successfully created a VPS, and when trying ssh into it, I can't. Ok, here we go. I want to create a 2nd vps and will be using it as my DNS server. I enter a set of IPs into HyperVM's IPpool. First IP: x.x.x.178 Last IP: x.x.x.182 Resolv Entries (space Separated) : Gateway (IP): x.x.x.x.177 NetMask:

Then I created a vps resource plan. And then I created a VPS and it use the first IP from above. I want to connect to SSH and want to make it as my DNS server but seems the IP are not responding, it wasn't even live. So, what is the problem here? Where I did wrong? Just to let you know, I successfully created 1 VPS before that and it works without any hiccups. Got even whm/cpanel installed as well on it. The thing that I suspected is that my DC pulled the IPs off me and assigned them to other server. Waiting for their reply on this though.

How Can Secure /tmp /var/tmp In OpenVZ VPS ?

Mar 15, 2007

recently I got a VPS from and so far so good. Im getting used to the VPS enviroment. I tried to follow several guides about how to secure with noexec and nosuid the /tmp and /var/tmp and it did not work.

in http : / / www . webhostingtalk .com/showthread.php?t=474681&highlight=tmp points it must be done from the hosting. Same is said in http : // kb . swsoft . com/article_130_648_en.html.

I asked the hosting to do it and they told me as I got an Unmanaged VPS they cant do it for me.

Do anyone know how can be done ? I dont want to use tmpfs as it uses main memory.

VPS - Mananged, Non/ Xen Or Openvz

Jul 26, 2008

i am looking to get away from hostgators extremely overloaded servers and get a vps. I have been admining linux servers for a while although never as a web server, but think i can handle that aspect. I have done a huge amount of research but dont know which way to go. One of the things thats rough is the control panels, i like cpanel and have only used cpanel but many charge alot for it. I have been considering an xl-256 plan from they are east coast (i am in NJ, west coast is out) and their xl plan is xen with swap. But its $15 for cpanel and that is too much, i was thinking of trying directadmin for $6. Is directadmin any good? I need spamassasin and that stuff of course. To me its crazy that openvz has no swap and the server will crash if you reach max ram like at I really liked's phone support but the west coast thing is rough. I have been looking at these guys but its virtuozzo, but cpanel is cheap only $5 a month. seemed cheap at $8 for cpanel. then i found this which sounds great! especially since its close but i emailed them to ask if its xen or openvz and havent heard back in almost 12 hours which scares me for support. i like phone support but again was on the west coast. their cpanel was cheap though at $8. plus i dont know if i want managed ro not then i remembered this site, and remembered i had gotten alot of help hear before so i figured it be best to hear others experience and favorites, etc.

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

Xen / OpenVZ Kernels?

Jun 27, 2008

On a recent Xen VPS trial, I noticed two kernel versions. "2.6.9-42.0.2.EL.xs148xenU" was being used, but 2.6.18X was installed (source & headers). While trying to set up OpenVPN, I noticed my modules.dep was missing. I could be wrong, but I was under the impression that I needed the Kern source in order to make the module dependencies. At any rate, I can't find the kernel versions in question and was wondering where / if they're provided for Xen users. (By the way, I was running CentOS 5)

OpenVZ - HN Can't Ping VE

Jul 13, 2008

I'm running my own OpenVZ server with a few VPS's running on it and have a small network issue.

I can't ping any VE from the HN. All the other networking is working ok (strangely I can ping the HN from the VE) apart from this. It's a simple setup with one network card connected to the internet.

OpenVZ the latest stable version running on CentOS 5.2

I'm pretty sure it's not a firewall problem but is something to do with arp or routing and one of the settings in sysctl.conf

Has anyone else seen this?

Checking VPS RAM - OpenVZ

I am looking at a VPS of one friend, using OpenVZ. It has 256MB RAM, but it always goes down, and the host asks my friend to upgrade to larger RAM. I have read that if UBC setting is too low, the VPS could not use all allocated RAM, not sure if it's correctly or not, but is there anyway to check?

This is some info ...

OpenVZ PAE Hang?

Aug 12, 2007

I am trying to run the OpenVZ PAE kernel with 8 gigs of ram to back the server, however the server keeps suffering from hangings.

It starts 2 or 3 vpses fine, but once it hits 4 or so, it hangs without a kernel panic or any other proper error message.

The kernel version is 2.6.18-8.1.8.el5.028stab039.1PAE but it also does it on 2.6.18-ovz028stab039.1-enterprise

Anybody have the same problem and come up with a solution? Node is running CentOS 5.
