I have been getting multiple emails a month for a service which I have never purchased.
The information they have harvested off the internet (since I know where they found it) and have obtained solely for use in attempting to charge me is- Invoiced To Steven Crothers 12345 Main St., Detroit, MI, 48021 United States
Which is completely obvious that it is fake.
I respond to EVERY invoice with a cancelation request, yet the tickets that get opened in the WHMCS billing panel get deleted a day later, however I have tickets in there that I have opened by use of the ticket insertion form that have stayed - none of which were ever answered.
The latest ticket information- Department:Billing And Invoicing Date:09/10/2009 10:05 Subject:The Second Time... Status:Open Urgency:Medium
It's still open without a reply.
I have put tickets into their Kayako system as well (They have two support systems, I would assume its due to poor management of their company). One of which was answered, with simply the output of `uname -a` on some server somewhere with my name as the hostname.
I than have attempted to reach anyone via livechat at [url]they constantly tell me that I am not allowed to speak to anyone until I pay my bills up to current (now remember, I have NEVER ordered anything from them, they don't even have valid information on file). Just tonight I demanded that I required to speak to a billing agent or I would be pressing harrasment charges against them for the 23 emails I have recieved in 3 months from them trying to extort money from me. They than banned me from their LiveChat software.
I have no idea what to do at this point, they are just sending me bills every month. I mark it as spam, but its frustrating to have a company trying to extort money from me on a very regular basis.
Is there any Open source backup software available for web hosting companies? I have a few shared hosting servers and a few dedicated servers and I want to setup a backup server for the backup of the data and config files of the servers. Please give me the names of some good open source backup software.
I own a small tech firm, mostly in business to support the customer with basic repair and upgrade. In recent year, more and more of my SMB customer ask me about the hosting service of the CRM or CMS.
The question I have is, although the open source tool, such as SugarCRM and Drupal is free of charge, but will it be free for some one like me to offer the service to my customer, either the same or customerize it a little bit.
And if it can be done, what kind of precaution I need to take, so I will not be involved in the copy right battle later on.
Thought this might be of interest to folks on WHT. We put together a solution using Nginx ( Engine-X ) to do Global Server Load Balancing. This solution lets you do GSLB without having to fork over $26k per site to F5 or Foundry.
Thought it would be of interest to both end-users as well as dedicated hosting providers who might want to make it into a service (eg. sell a dedicated host in Europe and the US as a group, with the solution pre-installed).
The entire project, including relavent configs is available for download in the latest ( issue 6 ) FREE issue of o3 magazine (o3magazine.com)
Can any one recommend a firewall which supports load balancing? We have a number of servers with in our rack which are currently hosted behind one firewall box but I would like to have the firewall load spread across multiple boxes.
Ideally this needs to be an open source solution. We have Looked at IPCOP, pfSense, m0n0wall but these dont seem to support the sort of load balancing we require.
In plesk I have set the ssh rule to allow from source, deny others and added my IP. However, if I connect my PC to my work VPN, I can still login via ssh, even when I am on a different IP as the allowed IP
I am currently in the throws of configuring a new dedicated "Windows Web Server 2008 / IIS7 / Plesk" server. As part of the setup I have obviously made sure the firewall is correctly setup. After doing this I have run a remote port scan (from my internet connected PC) to the IP address of the server. This has brought up two ports that should be blocked:
I can open a remote telnet session to both these ports, however if I remote desktop to the server and attempt a telnet connection both ports fail to respond.
Does anybody know what these ports are?
If it helps at all, the firewall surrounding the server is an external Cisco device
I currently have the Web Application Firewall (ModSecurity) installed but would like a visual interface to block IP's, subnets etc.. Can I install the Plesk firewall as well without any conflict with the Web Application Firewall?
I'm in the process of installing PPA on infrastructure running Parallels Cloud Server. Each container has 2 interfaces, one public facing and a private interface for inter-server communication.
No problems installing PPA 11.5 (specifying IP's on commandline) or adding service nodes however, the firewall rules the documentation speaks of are nowhere to be seen? i.e.:
Important: After the installation, PPA creates the special firewall chain PPA-SN-Rules-INPUT used for communication with service nodes. Do not change it, otherwise, you will not be able to add service nodes to PPA.Click to expand...
Has this been dropped from PPA 11.5 ? (I recall seeing the firewall settings in 11.1) There is also no sign of the ppa.firewall tool that is also mentioned.
The only rule I see inserted is for Postgres on the management node, and 2 for pleskd on all of the nodes (open to world!).
here is what I seen when I installed kernel-2.6.20-1.2948.fc6.src.rpm
rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.20-1.2948.fc6.src.rpm 1:kernel warning: user brewbuilder does not exist - using root warning: group brewbuilder does not exist - using root warning: user brewbuilder does not exist - using root ########################################### [100%] warning: user brewbuilder does not exist - using root warning: group brewbuilder does not exist - using root
then when I ran: rpmbuild -bp --target=$(uname -m) /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec
I seen this error: + Arch=x86_64 + make ARCH=x86_64 nonint_oldconfig In file included from /usr/include/sys/socket.h:35, from /usr/include/netinet/in.h:24, from /usr/include/arpa/inet.h:23, from scripts/basic/fixdep.c:117: /usr/include/bits/socket.h:310:24: error: asm/socket.h: No such file or directory make: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 1 make: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2 error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.93770 (%prep)
I need to have this installed to get a app installed etc... suggestions or ideas? thanks
Ive recently switched from PC to OSX, i now own '2' Macs, a laptop and a G4 Quicksilver, although its CPU speed is slower and the Ram is lesser then my old PC, it performs much much quicker and more efficient.
The question is, i'm a web developer, i know very little about the back end goings on, such as System Administration, but i've got a few books on the subject which are aimed at Unix system administrators. Does UNIX cover both OSX and Linux (Debian mainly).
Eventually i want to be able to run my own server, i own a debian dedicated server, but its not my own, its the datacenter's and i dont really know enough to get down and dirty in the back end. Id like to be able to set up servers from scratch in the long run.
So would learning UNIX cover both OSX and Linux, im not bothered about Windows, i don't plant to use a Windows machine again.
