2 Apache Boxes That Back Each Other Up

Feb 28, 2008

I have a managed box with rackspace (green) On this I am running a couple of distance learning sites e.g (moodle on apache) and video streaming (lighttpd). This is all working fine.

I'm now looking at moving our "normal" website (drupal on apache) to a managed server with rackspace. (call this blue)

The 2 different parts will be running on 2 different machines, but I'd like to be able to move sites/applications between them if needs be due to load/work/failure

For example if the normal website server goes down, temporarily move that on to the distance learning/media server or vice versa.
Or if after a while we get more traffic on the distance learning server than the website, move the media server over to the normal website server.

Hope that makes sense - I'm not looking at a proper cluster here, but 2 servers I can juggle things between if needs be.

The way I'm thinking of doing it is having both machines with the same setup (apache port 80 and lighttpd port 81 for streaming)
And use Vhosts on both machines setup for all the sites.
i.e. and each have vhosts setup for, and

This way, whichever server the dns for points to goes there, and the same for other services.

Then do a nightly backup of the mysql databases to the other server and keep files rsynced.

Then if a server goes down or I want to move x from green to blue I just load the backup of green database for the relevant application on the blue server and point the dns entry for the app to blue.

Large Email Boxes + Cpanel

Jan 7, 2007

I ever seen a large mailbox be reliable, but now I have one that's mine and I have 8000 messages and 1.2gb. I can't even log into Horde webmail, if I use NeoMail its very slow, it takes 1 or 2 minutes to delete 100 messages or empty the trash. So I tried to setup the email account in Thunderbird and it times out. When I use POP3 thunderbird says it timed out but on the server I can still see the CPOP process for that user and it says it authenticating, if I try again to access it it says the mailbox lock is on, if I remove the lock same thing, no way to access it.

So any advise on how to access this large mailbox, perhaps there is a way to increase the timeouts?

Also whenever I try to do anything with the mailbox it increases the server load, from .20 or so it goes to 1, 2 even 3+

Is Colocation More Expensive Than Reselling Dedi-boxes?

Feb 18, 2007

I currently run 16 boxes which I rent from various data centers, mark-up and resell. Conventional wisdom says that it's time for me to start colocating my own servers. I've got approval for capital (loan) so it's no problem for me to just buy these boxes and colo them. But... how the hell does anyone afford it?

I mean, I can get a cabinet in H.E. with 10Mbps burst to 100Mbps for $600/mo (through EGI). Which is an insanely good deal until you realize that it only includes 15amps of power. So (I think) that means that I can really only run about 15 or 20 Celerons at the most. So much for filling up the rack.

Optimistically, if I can run 20 Celerons which I've priced at about $700 each including shipping -- plus a switch, KVM, spare parts and bank interest over 24 months -- that's about $800/mo for the servers plus $600 for the cab, plus about $200/mo for remote hands in case I need the DC guys to do something. I'm looking at about $80/mo per server which I have to pay whether it's rented or not.

I can easily find celerons for $80/mo which include some level of support and I can very easily cancel whenever my client does and buy a fresh new one whenever I get a new client.

I was all excited to go colo -- but the numbers don't add up. What am I missing here? What's the big advantage to all the extra hassle of owning your own?

Streaming Server Experience

Sep 29, 2008

I am planning to purchase a streaming server for ~ 200$ - 500$/ month. And I would like to hear your past experience or expertise. I am sure this will help lot of people here that are looking to buy streaming servers.

For my specific need,

Streams are usually 450Kbps and they run for 12 hours straight per day and 30 days. And I run at least 50 slots at a time.
[450Kbps*50*3600*12*30]= ~30TB (Worst case scenario)

I think need 100Mbps shared (I hope to run at least 50Mbps when there is a streaming event).Thank you for all the help.

Red5 Streaming Server

Mar 23, 2009

I have been fascinated by the Red5 streaming server and tried to configure it on my VPS , i could follow the instructions and get upto the demo page eventhogh most of the demo pages are not working , I believe this is a problem with the configuration and the location where the files should be uploaded after installation or the rtmp URL which should be used on the demo page for the demos to work, I have experinced the issue mainly with the oflademo.

I was quite dissappointed to see that there are not much docs available for post installation configuration of Red5 too for a normal person

I urge the members to develop this thread into a good tutorila on Installation and Configuration of Red5

Darwin Streaming Server Installation

Dec 20, 2006

I've just installed DSS 5.5.4 on Apache/Redhat server.

The installation went fine. The darwinadminserver started automatically.

But when I go to the Webadmin page on port 1220 from the browser, or when I try to stream the sample videos from quicktime, the server just hangs, won't connect.

I checked the error logs and they read:

2006-12-20 09:32:39: WARNING: Another process is already using the following RTSP port: 554
2006-12-20 09:32:39: WARNING: Another process is already using the following RTSP port: 7070

2006-12-20 09:32:39: WARNING: Streaming Server is not listening for RTSP on any ports.

I rebooted the server without darwin to see what processes were using those ports but I couldn't see any processes.

Video Streaming :: What Type Of Server?

May 29, 2008

What of servers are used by hosts offering packages with this type of support?

I've read that streaming can be made via web server and streaming media server. The first type has only one advantage and this is that it allows to utilize existing infrastructure, while the second type offers more effective network throughput and (what's more important for me as an end-user) allows for better video and audio quality and support of the advanced features.

Now looking at the hosting plans how do I tell which type of server is used by the host?

I'm interested in this particular plan

Free Email - Lot Of Space And Email Boxes Involved

Feb 13, 2007

One of my customers asked me if is possible technically to offer free email services.

Since he's going to launch a big portal he want to offer such things later, for all users.

Now, there are problems as:
a) if there is any possibility to compress emails similar with GMAIL or YahooMail or so, because i can't imagine the email is uncompressed

b) how can be handled email boxes over multiple (mail ?) servers if the HDD space needed would be larger than for one server HDD ?
