Linux Server: Mapping Ftp Account As A Drive

Apr 9, 2007

any idea if this is possible? basically what i'd like to do is make a "virtual folder" in my linux box that is actually a connection to an ftp account on another server.

so for e.g. if i say cd /myftp it'll show the contents of that directory as though it was a standard folder, however it is actually connecting to some other machine via ftp?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Setup Multi-server Hard Drive But On One Account

Oct 21, 2014

Not sure if I labeled that correctly, but I am looking to setup a multi-server where I offer a cloud ssd hosting plan, and sata hosting plan. The current setup has ssd hosting, but id like to add another ip address, as well as its hard drive to host other websites on that specific server, which is sata based.

For example, I add a domain to my plesk 12 admin account and choose the added Ip address (the sata based one), where it points to that server to access the files for that specific website.

At the moment, cloudflare handles all of my dns settings.. but I am totally lost on how this needs to be setup and if I am required to purchase another plesk license. I am trying to avoid purchasing another plesk license and having to setup a whole new plesk installation just to do this.. This is a vps by the way, not a dedicated server...

Apache :: Network Hard Drive Mapping

Apr 2, 2014

So I have question regarding apache on windows and hard drives.

I have a virtual rack what i connected all my servers upto, Then I mapped all my servers hard drives together so they can all communicate and share data from each other.

But I have apache installed on 1 server hard drive C:/

Can I run apache from that mapped hard drive on the other servers ? Or would that cause problems ?

Also they are all windows 2008 running the latest apache from here.

Hard Drive Failing, To Move A Account

Aug 4, 2007

I had a smart error emailed to me by the server, so I had Savvis do a hard drive test on my server. They told me my main drive has some bad blocks and is failing. I have a new drive in the tower as a slave already. I went into WHM and clicked in list accounts, the change partition button for a smaller account. That worked moving it from /home to /home2. However when I tried it with a larger account, it seemed to time out. I have all the clients moved accept one, who has a site with about 14 gigs of data.

I think the command would be: mv /home/admin /home2/admin

Is this correct, or is there a better way to do this?

Also if I move it in SSH, will WHM list accounts auto update itself, or will I need to do something for that as well?

Linux Setting Up Second Drive

Jun 28, 2007

I'm a little familiar with Linux, but I need help setting up a second drive that is in the server I'm leasing from Layered Technologies. It's a self-managed server so they won't even TELL me how to do it.

I need to format the drive and mount it as /backup so I can setup WHM/Cpanel to use it for backups.

What commands do I need to type to format the drive with the right kind of partition and mount it as /backup?

Linux Hard Drive Recovery

Aug 2, 2008

I have my backup disks here because my server got hacked and we didn't like how liquidweb made the things. So we ask them to ship us the disk. They ran photorec and they got lots of .gz files from it. All accounts I would say. But 50% of them the .tar.gz files came corrupt. And is lefting all the big accounts and until now I haven't seen any corrupted file that came with MySQL. And I think MySQL is most important to all clients.

Data Lost , But Still Have Old Home Drive , How To Copy To New Drive

Jan 26, 2007

1- i did Os Reload with new Hard drive for "home"
2- data "backups" drive lost

3- replaced the old home drive as "/old drive"

4- " /old drive " is now the secondry drive in my server and it has the all sites usres and evry thing

5- what i need , to trasfer, copy this sites from " /old drive " to "home"

but data center said

The /olddrive/home directory contains the contents that were previously in the /home directory. You can copy files from this directory to any other directory on your server.

The command to copy files in the UNIX environment is the "cp" command.

The user directories in /olddrive/home directory contain the web page files for the users. However, simply copying the contents over will not recreate the users or domain entries in DNS/httpd. If you wish these back you will need to recreate them manually or restore them from backups.

Mount Windows Drive In Linux, Bad Performance

Mar 8, 2008

Since my linux server is out of disk space, I just use cifs to mount some drives from the windows server for people to download files (usually 100-200mb/file).

But I found the performance is not good. For example, I need to wait for a long time before the download process begin. Also, it seems the load average of the server becomes high too.

Is there any suggestion? Should I mount the windows drives through cifs? Or should I change to another server which allow me to add more local harddisks? How about if I mount drives in other linux machine, will the performance better?

Mounting Drive Between Win-Linux (ntfs & Ext3)

Jul 25, 2007

I wanted to mount a Usb portable drive of some data I have inside my Linux server and make them read on my Windows xp.

The drive has been formatted as ext3 and it just won't show in "my computer" inside Windows unless I reformat it again as ntfs.

The same turns around if if I format as ntfs, and i can't mount it under linux with the message "mount: unknown file system type 'ntfs'"

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: How To Backup To A Mounted Drive

Jul 4, 2014

My hosting company is offering to sell me backup space which will be mounted as a network location. e.g. /usr/local/backup

My question is how would I use this since Plesk seems to be configured either to use an FTP location or to use the server repository. Would I have to change the location of the server repository to this network location? This doesn't seem ideal.

Drive Corrupt, Recovery From 2nd Drive Mount

Feb 16, 2007

Primary drive (centos/cpanel) is corrupt

The server is displaying these errors when I tried to do an FSCK:
Bad inode IO
ext3-fs error (device(8,3)) IO Failure

I am having a new primary installed and old primary set as 2nd drive. I need to recover the cpanel domain accounts from this 2nd drive after I mount it with the method below:

mkdir /backup
mount /dev/sdb1 /backup

However, how do I actually recover these accounts in an automated process via whm? I've done this before with the same matter (corrupt primary drive, mount as 2nd, etc) but cannot exactly remember the proper steps.

- -> Hosted on VPS1
- -> Hosted on VPS2

VPS0, VPS1, VPS2 have different IP addresses.

I tried using A records to point subdomains to different VPS but VPS requires a "primary domain" looks like. Do let me know if this is possible. I tried google but not sure what exactly I shoudl be searching for.

Domain Mapping ..

Dec 24, 2008

I have a new domain for an online store which I am trying to map to a certain web server(launchsplash_com) for just their Launch Page to show up as homepage when my website is accessed (the ecommerce software has its own default homepage, which I prefer not to show up). The registrar for the domain is Godaddy but hosting is done with a different company - Server Intellect.

The issue is mapping my domain to Launchsplash's server does not seem to work. And I am not sure if I am doing the right settings through the host control panel. As per LaunchSplash company's instruction - I create a CNAME record name - www_mydomainname_com and CNAME record data - mydomainname_LaunchSplash_com

Since the domain is not being hosted with Godaddy, the total dns control for making dns changes is disabled in godaddy control panel.

I do not wish to do the forwarding option, since that shows up the forwarded domain name.

Is Domain Mapping Good Or Bad?

Apr 9, 2009

If you want to use several domains for your single website, from SEO-reasons or from any other reasons (which?) is it better to forward your domain to that sub-domain or should it be mapped in the DNS in CNAME? =

It's not the same issue like with Google Apps, whether you should use your own domain, e.g. or whether you should use the domain offered by Google for your Sites. The reason is that is a part of the single website called, thus, it is not an external website hosted somewhere else.

Domain Mapping Clarification

Jun 19, 2009

i currently have a site on a domain. my client would like the "main" domain to be .com instead. I should add that BOTH .com and will be used.

The company is advertising itself as, so people will associate the business with, not

I have both domains, and I understand domain mapping is used for this purpose, but before I go and screw up anything, could someone please clarify.

Is it possible to "domain map" so that visitors go to, they will see the website as .com, but the site itself will actually be on the "" server.

I don't particuarly want to transfer the site from the to the .com and set up a redirect.

I know I could use a redirect .com to, but the client specifically wants ".com" to be the site visitors view. (they bought and set the site up first, just to be annoying)

Drive Corrupt - Should I Ask For New Drive Or Reimage

Jul 9, 2007

I have a dedicated box and I started getting Input/output errors today.

I tried:
# fsck
fsck 1.40-WIP (14-Nov-2006)
e2fsck 1.40-WIP (14-Nov-2006)
/dev/hda2: recovering journal
fsck.ext3: unable to set superblock flags on /dev/hda2

then I tried:
# fsck -a -t ext3 /dev/hda2
fsck 1.40-WIP (14-Nov-2006)
/dev/hda2: recovering journal
fsck.ext3: unable to set superblock flags on /dev/hda2

My data is backed up, so was going to ask for a reimage, but is this an indication of bad hardware? Should I ask for a replacement drive? Is there anything else I should try on my own before going to the host?

Remote Web Folder Mapping Technology - Does It Exist?

Mar 20, 2009

Currently my companies global website “” is hosted in a shared hosted environment, our own U.S. website “” is hosted at our datacenter.

Here is my question, we have a redesign project. My goal is to lose the “” sub-domain and move our new U.S. site under the "" domain using a “/us/” folder delineation.

Is it possible with modern web server technology to setup a something like virtual directory/folder, redirect, alias or remote mapping of the “/us/” folder that points to a separate server hosting our U.S. site outside of shared hosting environment for our "" site, e.g.?

•<global website content/structure > - Hosted at in a shared environment on Web App Server running Coldfusion
•<U.S. website content/structure> - Hosted at our datacenter on Web App Server running IBM WebSphere

Unfortunately I cannot merge the two sites together based on the web server technology and lack of budget/resources to accomplish.
