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.
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?
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.
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?
The last packet successfully received from the server was 60.410.682 milliseconds ago. The last packet sent successfully to the server was 60.410.687 milliseconds ago. is longer than the server configured value of 'wait_timeout'. You should consider either expiring and/or testing connection validity before use in your application, increasing the server configured values for client timeouts, or using the Connector/J connection property 'auto Reconnect= true' to avoid this problem.
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.
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?
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.
I issued a self-signed certificate for Exim by running the following commands:
Code: 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.
Code: 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?
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.
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?
I'm trying to find a tool that will thrash a site to the break point and report where that is. This is for testing sites before they go online so that they don't go online and then drop offline because they can't handle the load.
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.
