Increasing Server Capacity / CPanel
I'm trying to start a website on a shoestring budget, but my programmer and host want to squeeze more out of us. We currently have a Custom VPS, w/cPanel and WHM. Everytime I try to upload a file(s) more than 10 mb, it will not go thru. My programmer told me to ask the server to increase capacity, they tell me it will cost me. My programmer says the same thing. Now if my programmer can do it, I assume it will be done through cPanel. Is there anyway I can do it myself, so for example, a file of lets say 25 mb will get uploaded? I have access to my cPanel.

Windows Server Capacity
I am trying to develop plans for my small 'datacenter'. My Question is how many shared hosting users (sites) can be on one server. While this question is broad, please assume a general distribution of users (sites) and the following server configuration (and lets ignore the datacenter network/uplink for the meoment):
Xeon Quad Core 5410 processor
8 GB RAM
Windows 2003 or 2008 Server O/S
How about if a mySQL database is added (to the same server?)
I recently started looking at some of the panel systems and it seems that a typical configuration is 'all-in-one', that is a Web Server, Database and email server - do these perform well?
Is there any rule of thumb for Windows servers such as zz MB Ram per user; # of users per processor; # of user per processor core?
Server Specs / Capacity
I would like some advice and to see if this is a good approach to setup a server / web business.
The idea is to start off providing very basic web hosting functionality for smaller sites.
I was thinking about purchasing two similar or identical servers (RAID1 disks) + server fully mirrored.
In case 1 falls out the 2nd one takes over. DNS services is at startup located on other servers in the DC.
If this works out then I'd be looking at increasing servers with clusters or LVS.
I'm having a very hard time finding resources and information of the load and server capacity.
I was thinking about a system like this:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 , RAID 1 SATA disks (preferrably Raptor), 2 GB of RAM.
This would then be running LAMP. I would limit the traffic to 5-10GB transfer / month per account.
(most account would not nearly get up to this figure).
Is there a ballpark figure at about how many web sites this server could handle ?
Are we talking about 50 ? 20 ? 100 ?
FTP Server - High Speed / Capacity
I've been asked to look for a offsite ftp server solution as an alternative to having one inhouse attached to a 20-100mbps leased line. It will be used for storing ISO images of DVD's from client sites, must have a fast connection, reliable and full security.
Site Capacity Of Dedicated Server
What would be the site hosting capacity of a dedicated server in terms of numbers of small sites.
1000 visitors a day for example.
Perhaps 5 page views a vistor and each site having a VBulletin as a sub-domain.
Would it be best to run them all off one dedicated server or each site just off a small hosting plan?
For organizational purposes it seems the dedicated server would be the way to go?
Huge Capacity Windows 2003 Server
I have a request to built a standard 32 bit Windows 2003 server as big as possible using standard parts. I am thinking if i use 750GB x 4 Raid 5, that will give me 2.1TB of usable space. Is there any limitations or bottlenecks I should be wary about?
Dedicated Server With Very Large Storage Capacity
I have found SL can offer you 12*1 TB drive based systems, after RAID-5 and Win 2003 install you get just over 10 TB of storage. The monthly price works out to $1000/Month.
I know some time ago LeaseWeb offered these type of storages....any one else know of any others ?
Amazon S3 works out to about $1500 for 10 TB
My Consumed Space Is Keep Increasing - Do You Know Why
I have bought a hosting from new hosting company.
I have total 5GB space wherein I can host unlimited domains.
When I uploaded my files ( for 4 sites ) I saw that I have used total 16 MB. But today when I logged in there I noticed that the cPanel shows that I have used total 22.75 MB
But I didn't upload anything that may take upto 6MB space
I just uploaded few images that may take maximum 100KB.
My hosting provider said this
"The extra disk space could be email messages stored on the server, mysql database files, etc... All these things are accounted for within your disk space."
But I replied that I don't use any database and I don't have any single email in my account so how that space can by consumed? Waiting for their further reply.
VPS Disk Quota Status Keeps Increasing Every 2 Days
I have had over 4 different VPS providers and in all of them, I was always using less than 5 gigs and most of it is from the OS and the VPS files, my website is less than 400 megs of size including the backups. For some reasons, my Disk Quota is at 8.3 gigs and it was at 8.2 gigs yesterday. My website's files are not that big and the Database is like 30 megs and the backups are compressed so they are like 4 megs. The problem is that I really don't know what files are making my Disk Quota to go up since I haven't uploaded anything or download files to my VPS.
Increasing The Expiration Time For SSL Certificate For Exim
I issued a self-signed certificate for Exim by running the following commands:
openssl req -new -x509 -keyout /etc/exim.key.tmp -out /etc/exim.cert
openssl rsa -in /etc/exim.key.tmp -out /etc/exim.key
rm -f /etc/exim.key.tmp
service exim restart
The problem is the certificate expires after one month. I have already edited my /usr/share/ssl/openssl.cnf with the following lines in order to increase this expiration time to one year and it worked for the SSL certificate issued for Apache, but it has no effect on the Exim certificate.
default_days = 365 # how long to certify for
default_crl_days= 365 # how long before next CRL
Should I edit another file or set it on another place? Does anyone know?
This is my first post here, though I've been an occasional reader for a long time.
I currently have a VPS at Godaddy, plus shared hosting at Godaddy, 1and1, and Namecheap.
I'm very unhappy with Godaddy, and not terribly thrilled with 1and1. Also, I want to consolidate my sites.
I have appx. 25 sites, with plans for another 20-25. Most are either WP blogs, or static informational sites (using Xsitepro). Most are low-volume (appx. 100 visitors/day). A few, maybe 5, are low-medium volume (a few hundred visitors/day).
The sites are pretty basic, mostly Adsense, affiliate sales, and the like. No streaming anything except the occasional video clip.
I'm considering Futurehost's current offer for 50% off lifetime on their Titanium package w/ cPanel. This provides 1Gb RAM. Any reason to think this would not be adequate for my current and future plans (currently appx. 25 sites, going up to 50 within 12 months)?
I'm pretty sure bandwidth will be way more than adequate, I'm just wondering if a 1Gb VPS will be enough for all my sites.
A question about backups:
So, we have a dedicated server with 2 x 146GB SAS HDD Hot Plug (max 4-6) and running WHM/cPanel
the two disks are in RAID.
Noticed, cpanel wasn't making backups, so apparently we need to install additional disks for it to start to do so. cpanel makes 3 backups - daily, weekly, monthly; home directory is set to around 100GB. So does that mean we would need to put in two additional SAS disks per server just to manage backups or does anyone have other experience how this is best dealt with?
Where To Go When Shared Hosting Capacity Runs Out
I have a website currently hosted on a Godaddy shared hosting plan.
Visitors to the site have reported getting "Service Unavailable" messages at times. When I talked to Godaddy about this, they say I am exceeding the limits they put on simultaneous page requests (or something to that effect). For my plan this limit is set at 100.
I upgraded to their highest shared hosting plan, and this limit now goes up to 150 simultaneous requests. This will probably solve the problem for a while, but I think the site will grow enough to have a problem at 150, and I need to figure out what to do when this happens.
The site currently gets about 4800 visitors a day, and uses around 5 gb of bandwidth per day.
The site is: BuildItSolar dot com
- Am I likely to find a shared hosting plan that is better on this limit than Godaddy?
- Is the site getting large enough that some form of virtual dedicated server or dedicated server is going to be necessary?
- Godaddy offers virtual dedicated servers, and dedicated servers. I wonder what I would need to go to solve the problem, and provide some capacity margin for growth?
Is the lowest level of virtual dedicated server really going to provide any better performance than the shared hosting plan I have now? Godaddy was not very helpful on answering these questions.
- Any recommendations for virtual dedicated server or dedicated server outfits that are good?
Sorry about so many questions on my first post. Wish I knew more about this whole hosting thing.
Moved To Dedicated Still Facing Capacity
I just moved my site to dedicated server due to shared hosting capacity problem. Again I am facing Too many connection problem, when i contacted go daddt they replied as follow
Thank you for contacting Server Support. There are a couple of things you might want to check. First is how you have your httpd service configured. Make sure you have sufficient MaxClients defined in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. Additionally you will want to refer to your /etc/my.cnf file to make sure you have it configured to allow as many max_connections and max_user_connections as are needed.
I am using Redhat Fedora with Plesk as control Panel. Any help how i can change this Max_user_connections?
AWSTATS Stats Decreasing While Webalizer Stats Are Increasing
I look after a number of sites and monitor their stats. We use both webalizer and AWSTATS so we can have a comparison. Up until recently the stats for both of them where relatively the same, webalizer usually showing higher numbers as it doesn't filter bots but the progression of increase and decrease in stats was proportional. However, over the last few months a curious trend is appearing, the stats in AWSTATS are decreasing every month whereas the stats in Webalizer are increasing, the gap between them now is huge.
Increasing The Apache ServerLimit In Apache 2.2.8 Version.
The Linux Server got down when the MaxClients 256 is reached.
"server reached MaxClients setting, consider raising the MaxClients setting"
So that I have tried to increased the MaxClients Value to 500, after changed the value in httpd.conf and restart I get following error message.
" [notice] SIGHUP received. Attempting to restart
WARNING: MaxClients of 500 exceeds ServerLimit value of 256 servers,
lowering MaxClients to 256. To increase, please see the ServerLimit
So that I tried changed the Server limit in /usr/local/apache/include/httpd.h header file. but it seems like there is no entry.
Apache Version : 2.2.8
So I have added the ServerLimit 500 entry in httpd.conf file and restart the httpd service. But still shows the same warning mesg. Please help me regarding this.

Cpanel Domain Name Server (DNS) Setting For Email On 2 Seperate Server

However I encounter problems as the emails from server2 won't reach server1 as there are duplicate profile on server2.
My question is how do I setup the DNS in cpanel/whm from server2 so the emails from server2 will reach server1?

New Server With WHM/cPanel
I'm holding a dedicated server on my own and have about 6 sites to transfer to that server, some sites get heavy traffic (8k uniques per day)
what is more effective (since im the only one using the server anyway) creating one cpanel account and hosting all the domains under additional domains on that account with unlimited resources or creating a new cpanel account for each domain?

CPanel Domain Name Server (DNS)
After spending 1 hour wondering why all domains suddenly stopped working and the hosting server was showing no signs of fail.

Also why would the secondary dns server failing, cause the domain to stop working. The primary dns/hosting server was fine.
WHM/CPANEL Domain Name Server (DNS)
I have just purchased a VPS with WHM and CPANEL.
My old VPS used LXADMIN and HYPERVM.
I'm trying to change over the DNS from the old to the new, so all i did was change the i.p's.
Now i go into WHM and type my DNS servers into the setup/config page. Having already assigned each dns name an i.p im just waiting for the Assign an A address to this namserver button to show my new i.p address.. At the minute it says my old one.
Is this the correct way, i know it can take a while to proporgate, is this the same with it showing the new IP?

ClamAV On A CPanel Server
I've got ClamAV installed on my cPanel (Dedicated) server with a single site and would am having trouble setting up ClamAV to scan emails.
I installed it via WHM and have set it up in WHM to scan all items.
Ie: WHM -> Plugins -> Configure ClamAV Scanner -> Scan ALL items
After doing a few manual scans however (using 'clamscan -ri') I'm finding infections in the account mail folder.
1. Is there a good guide to setting up ClamAV on a cPanel serve do do automatic mail scanning? I was under the impression that ClamAV scans emails also however after doing some reading people seem to recommend MailScanner.
2. My logwatch is giving me the following error.
The ClamAV update process (freshclam daemon) was not running! If you no longer wish to run freshclam, deleting the freshclam.log file will suppress this error message.
The freshclam daemon wasn't running so I've started it (freshclam --daemon). I've also checked the freshclam.conf file and the logrile is set as follows:
Dedicated Server And Cpanel
I've had some people trying to sell me dedicated recently with cpanel for €30, unbelievable that too with core duo 2.ghz, 100mbps unmetered, 250 gb, ofcourse i said no but strangely they were offering cpanel with it. Now that is unbeilievable, when i asked what cpanel, they said they installed Cpanel VPS on it.
It was quite astonished there and they said it was common practice.
Of course i know it is scam but they actually showed me a screenshot..
Getting More Out Of LogWatch On A CPanel/WHM Server
I was searching for something else the other day and came across this (search for LogWatch on the page).
It changes the default paths for some of the log files so that they work on a cPanel/WHM server.
This will give you more reports in your daily LogWatch email - specifically, it adds exim, apache, courier and PureFTP logs.
Most tutorials only show you how to change the detail level or the email address in logwatch.conf.
So, I thought I'd share this piece of information.
I found that a few changes were necessary for my system.
So, I'll give all the steps I followed below:
1) After you have installed LogWatch, change the following in /usr/share/logwatch/default.conf/logwatch.conf :
Detail = High
MailTo = <your email address>
You can use Detail = Med if you want to reduce the details you get.
2) Add the following to /etc/logwatch/conf/override.conf (you may have to create the file):
logfiles/exim: LogFile = exim_mainlog
logfiles/http: LogFile = /usr/local/apache/logs/access_log
services/pop3: *OnlyService = cpanelpop
services/pop3: *RemoveHeaders = 1
services/pureftpd: LogFile = messages
services/pureftpd: $show_logins = 1
services/pureftpd: $show_logouts = 1
services/pureftpd: $show_new_connections = 1
So, if you are not bored reading LogWatch's daily logs and would like to increase your workload, you now know how to
How have you configured your LogWatch installation ? Or do you use something other than LogWatch?
Securing A Cpanel Server
I am concerned as I get several emails containing this like this:
Large Number of Failed Login Attempts from IP xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
I'm trying to stop it, as obviously, I don't want anyone gaining access to my server.
Any tips for making sure the server is really secure?
CPU Load On Cpanel Server
Since the past few months I am facing cpu load on a server. The server is a Intel Xeon server with 4 gigs of RAM. Today the load average went over 150 which is very high. I could not access the server to check what is causing such a high load. I had to reboot the server using Remote Power switch. Is there a way I can find out the cause of the heavy load after the server is reboot? Is there any log where all the information is stored?
Emails From CPanel Server
I run a free webhosting company, and I would like to email all of my users (they accepted this by signing up with my services) a monthly newsletter. I do not wish to use the WHM Email All Users function, but rather use a third party tool.
Is there a way to export ALL of the email accounts of my users
CPanel Crashes My Server
I have remote uptime tracking on my server, and I am regularly getting text messages and emails regarding my server going down. This in itself isn't odd, however the fact is, everytime the problem is cPanel.
I log into my PC and find an email from my server and it contains the following;
cpsrvd failed @ Thu Aug 7 19:11:17 2008. A restart was attempted automagically.
Failure Reason: Unable to connect to port 2086
what's causing this? It's on a VPS and the main server hasn't been down once, but this VPS constantly goes offline, at least once a day...
No filesystems with quota detected.
Resetting quota for arayeshs to 100 M

SpamD Server Without Using CPanel
It may have already been covered, but i have searched and cannot find a solution to the following.
I have a few Shared hosting servers using Cpanel. The biggest use of resource is spamd.
Is there a way of setting up a spamd server, ie not using Cpanel so that this server purely does the spam checking then passes it back to which ever Cpanel server it came from.
I have done this using postfix, but I'm new to the whole exim / Cpanel thing.

I've been thinking to mount my primary drive into another cpanel server (not a fresh server) as secondary drive and restore from there. The question is how? I need detailed steps by steps as it's urgent for me..
Cpanel Server Transfer
I have to move 140 domains from my old cpanel dedicated server to the new one and have root access on both.
Earlier I wanted to avoid copying unnecessary files and was thinking of creating fresh domains/emails on new server and transfering content, but then realised that it will need more than 160 hours of manual labour (including informing clients that their passwords have changed).
Please advice as to which transfer method will be best based on the following constraints:
1. 70 domains will be done one week and remaining 70 next week while both servers continue to run.
2. On the new server all domains will have different nameservers.
METHOD 1. Putting same version of WHM-stable on both servers and using its "Copy an account from old server" feature. After copying the 70 accounts (one-by-one seems to cause less issues with large sites) we change nameservers for those 70 domains over the weekend.
METHOD 2: For every account on old server use "Generate a full cp backup" and let cPanel FTP it to a dummy account on the new server. Restore on new server and change nameservers for those 70 domains over the weekend.
METHOD 3: Run "/scripts/pkgacct username" on old server, move the tar.gz file to new new server. Restore on new server and change nameservers for those 70 domains over the weekend.
METHOD 4: Reduce TTL for A records on old server. Use WHM "Copy an account" on new server. Then modify DNS on old server to point to new server IPs. Now change nameservers at Registrar.
METHOD 5: Asking my datacenter people to use rsync etc. But this will move all data together,
