I just installed Avira Antivir Windows Server 8 to my VPS but it didn't work out (service won't start). Have you ever installed antivirus client for VPS? If you have, what client should work in the Windows VPS (F-Secure, Symantec...)?
I'm not in the market to lease a dedicated server right now, but just out of curriousity, what is the difference between renting one from HostGator, or from The Planet (who I believe HostGator gets their servers from).
Wouldn't that be the same product with 2 different labels on it?
Also, I saw on HostGators website: "We have over 150 employees to provide you around-the-clock superior support." So do they have their employees at The Planets facility, or are they refering to The Planets employees who support their customers, or how does this whole deal work?
My thinking has always been, whenever possible, go directly to the SOURCE, to get the best deals. Is this not the case?
I am running wordpress for ecommerce using httpd-2.4.12 on my Ubuntu Server 12.04.5. The problem I have is some unknown clients received the message that reads "You don't have permission to access the product on this server" when they were trying to access to the Product page to make a purchase.
When I tested on all of my devices, I did not have any issue with accessing to the page. I know that the page is a secure page with https.I've looked into the apache logs file and found nothing that's related to 404 or 403 errors there.what I have configured for my httpd.conf.
I am trying to learn more about storage solutions over Ethernet. There are iSCSI (internet SCSI) and AoE (ATA over Ethernet). Certainly the AoE is a cheaper solution. Besides pricing, what are the advantages (and disadvantages) of each?

we are setting up a couple of servers for a clients application which will have 2 x 1U application servers running XenServer 5.5 and one NFS or iSCSI server (Dell 2950, Raid 10) running ether just Linux with NFS or Openfiler with iSCSI.
Would there be any benefit in running iSCSI vs. NFS considering their is no iSCSI accelerator and this is just a regular Server ?
NFS is simple but is it's performance really that much different than iSCSI in this scenario?
Thinking of putting together a ISCSI box with 14 sata II 750's, 3Ware sata controller (raid 6) and Intel quad port gigabit card ganged together for 4 gig transfer and tieing it all together with Open-E ISCSi or DSS module.
Anyone done something similar with good (or bad) results? Thing of using this for hosting web sites primarily as well as some storage for mail server and some databases. Servers running raid 1 and using MS iscsi initiator. Have a vlan setup just for iscsi traffic in my 48 port gigabit switch.
Are the TOE cards better to have or is the MS Initiator good enough. Plan on using the second NIC on the servers solely for ISCSI transfer.
Has anyone here tried the Dell/EqualLogic PS5000 series iSCSI SANs? Any opinions on them? I'm looking to use two in a VMWare ESX cluster.
Also, does anyone have any more specific pricing than the 'starting at $19,000' that's been banded around the internet? I have an EqualLogic sales person visiting my offices in a week but would ideally like to get some rough pricing before then (eg: the price difference between SAS and SATA). Trying to get prices out of Dell hasn't been easy so far.
I setup an iSCSI target and two iSCSI initiators but I am having some trouble sharing the storage.
I partitioned the drive when I used the first initiator, a 1TB partition, I mounted it without any issues, it showed up in df -h.
Now I went to mount the iSCSI target on the second initiator, I mounted it fine, the partition I made on the first initiator was recognized on this one, however when I add files to either or, the changes aren't recognized on the other initiator. Any ideas why this might be?
I put 1GB of files in one initiator and I ran the df -h command on the other, and it still had the same amount of free space.
Iīm thinking about using a centralized hosting solution, in order to achieve better redundance and performance while having more room to expand if necessary. In order to achieve this, I was thinking about implementing a storage server, and use a software to provide iSCSI target capabilities.
As storage server, I was thinking about using HP DL320s ( URL ), loaded with 12 147GB SAS HDīs 15K RPM. I will make some tests to understand the real difference between RAID5 and RAID10, concerning write speed. Also, Iīm not sure if the controller provided with this server is good enough to provide a reliable operation.
For switching, I will use HP 2824 or 2848 Gigabit switch, and use port trunk in order to join both NIC controllers of the storage server.
As iSCSI target software, I still donīt know wich one to use. I think FalconStor would be a good bet, however it seems to be a bit expensive. Any good alternative?
This storage server would be used to provide storage for about 10 "regular" hosting servers, that have, at the moment, regular dual 10K SATA Drives (Raptor) in RAID1. I'm afraid the 2x Gigabit ports arenīt enough, even considering that I will not have intensive sequential reads / writes, but random acceses.
I'm currently connecting one of my servers to an iSCSI SAN but would like to hook up another server to that target as well. However, this doesn't work with NTFS filesystem and I couldn't really find any windows solutions for that. Does anyone have experience with this?
Iīm running a Dell Powerconnect 6224 with firmware 220.127.116.11 for a customer.
After upgrade to firmware 18.104.22.168 from the version 22.214.171.124, and starting to use ISCSI with link aggregation groups, the switch began to reboot every 2-3 days. Now, i have disabled LAG and this issue also happen.
It could be a firmware problem? Really, with firmware 126.96.36.199 it was solid as rock but without a advanced usage such as vlan, link aggregation, IP routing...
Iīm not sure if my customer would like pay more and choose a more stable switch such as Cisco Catalyst...
"Create a zend id for your machine." This is apparently for them to create a product key for their software and have to bind to it?!
I have never heard of this and have been unable to locate any information on it.

Currently I have a websites thats pretty new, about a month or too. Anyway, the site has a forum which is the area most used, and it's quickly growing. The topic of the site is automotive.
Basically I'm looking for decent ram, about 15gb of storage (forum db, pictures, and an occasional video), and 100gb+ of bandwidth. Once things really pick up, I'll just go out and get another server for this site, at the month however I want to stick to a VPS.
So who do you guys recommend? Please don't recommend primaryVPS, as I've been with them for less then a month and my experience has been less then pleasant.
we have several sites, that have www & email hosted in separate locations. we currently have our server redirect mail out. but if the server is slow, down, or other issues, it may not re-route the MX records out.
Would a managed DNS service help? i assume this means i could route services before they hit the server.
I've been using MediaTemple's Grid-Service for a few months now, and it has proven to be very unstable at times, with frequent downtime and slow servers. I've decided to step it up to a VPS and am looking for a very reliable and fast VPS available for under $30 / month.
I've taken a look at Zone.net, VPSLink, Steadcom, JaguarPC, and Future Hosting so far, and I'm trying to figure out which one is the best choice. I'm leaning toward Zone.net, or Steadcom - but if you have any other opinions,
