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.
We are looking for a VPS to house a scala framework running on a JVM, from what I can gleen Xen would be the best route for us or is it possible that openVZ with enough dedicated ram would suffice, does anyone have a view on this?
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.
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.
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: 255.255.255.248
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.
recently I got a VPS from cheapvps.co.uk 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.
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 vpsland.com. 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 vpslink.com. I really liked vpslink.com's phone support but the west coast thing is rough. I have been looking at http://www.ubiquityservers.com/vps/new-york.php these guys but its virtuozzo, but cpanel is cheap only $5 a month. bodhost.com 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 vpslink.com 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.
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)
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?
We've run into a few problems with migrating to a new nodes from our previous one. Both are on the same network while one is Centos 32bit the newer one is 64bit. The VPS's will keep the same IPs so there won't be donwtime.
I use the command:
vzmigrate -r no --keep-dst --online -v xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx VPSID
However it comes back with errors:
Error: undump failed: Invalid argument Restoring failed: Error: iptables-restore exited with 2 Error: Most probably some iptables modules are not loaded Error: rst_restore_net: -22 Stopping container ... Container start failed Container was stopped Container is unmounted Error: Failed to undump container Resuming...
