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...
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?
I just got a vps server with plesk 12 on it. I've added domains and so far so good. But I can't figure out how to install the email accounts.
I've made de email accounts and when adding these accounts to my mail program I wanted to use mail.domain.com or imap.domain.com But it doesn't work? And I need to use the smtp host of the internetprovider?
How can I use imap.domain.com and smtp.domain.com to get and send my emails?
Also Is there any way how to check if my server is installed ok and there are no security issues? Because I'm a noob I don't know what the best settings are?
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?
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
I was wondering if it is possible to host subdomains on different VPS's? Here is what I am trying to do
PrimaryDomain.com -> Hosted on VPS0 | - Subdomain1.primaryhost.com -> Hosted on VPS1 | - Subdomain2.primaryhost.com -> 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.
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.
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. sites.yourdomain.com or whether you should use the domain offered by Google for your Sites. The reason is that theotherdomain.com is a part of the single website called yourdomain.com, thus, it is not an external website hosted somewhere else.

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?
Currently my companies global website “domain.com” is hosted in a shared hosted environment, our own U.S. website “us.domain.com” is hosted at our datacenter.
Here is my question, we have a redesign project. My goal is to lose the “us.domain.com” sub-domain and move our new U.S. site under the "domain.com" 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 "domain.com" site, e.g.?
• Domain.com/<global website content/structure > - Hosted at in a shared environment on Web App Server running Coldfusion • Domain.com/us/<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.
