I couldnt find my past forum post regarding a good service from LA to Australia.
Mainly, Im looking for a LA service which will provide me with super times to melbourne australia. I need a company which is small and that can provide me with fast support and great speeds.
I have a Linux server running some reasonable setups:
Opteron 180, 4 GB RAM, running 8x 36gb 15k scsi with hardware raid 10 -- this is one of the servers from WebNX advertised here not long ago
Running CentOS 4(?), Apache2/MySql 4/PHP5.2, the normal stuff.
I have only one main site on the server, which runs a pretty old PostNuke CMS in Chinese (0.7.2.3 Phoenix) + PNphpBB2 + Gallery 1.5.7 (all integrated into PostNuke). This site is pretty light in "human" traffic, getting about 20K hits per day.
Now, the problem I have noticed with this site, is related to the many MP3 files stored in the Gallery albums. There are lots of HTTP requests to these files, most maybe from Chinese search engine bots (judging from IP), that slows the server to a crawl and even crashes Apache. This happens in the late hours here when it's day time in China. As a matter of fact I just did a reboot, and in 5 minutes there are more than 1000 HTTP requests to MP3 files resulting in a traffic of 2.1+ Gb. So within minutes, the server is brought to its knees again and I can't even get the "apache status" from CPanel now: "Unable to retrieve apache status".
The company that manages the server for me said there's no security problem here. We have installed an Apache extension to limit the number of simultaneous requests to media files to 1. However that doesn't seem to help.
I have an Xitami server and am migrating to apache httpd. I have the regular server working fine. I tried configuring ssl, but no requests are coming through. I know 443 is open on the router because it works fine under Xitami. I checked the logs and it si starting fine. I am attaching my httpd.conf and the startup log. If I try to access the website using https, it just times out and nothing goes in the log file. I replaced my domain with domain.com. I have tried many different examples, but cannot get it to work and am not sure what to do.
We just upgraded to VBulletin 3.6.5, and are experiencing strange behavior. My forums are on a dedicated server, 27,000 users.
We'll be running along fine with loads of .5-2.00, etc. Then suddenly, the loads start climbing to 50, 70, 85+. We've been trying to figure out why. We even went on a different (much more robust) server, still the same result. This only started happening after the upgrade. Restarting the server corrects the problem, but only until it happens again. It can happen at anytime - during peak or off peak. The server may run for an hour or two until this happens, or it can happen 10 minutes after a restart.
Late last night when loads were normal we benched the server hard, and it ran just fine. We just can't figure out where this load spike is coming from.

I'm curious. I have read some stuff recently about Amazon, Mosso and other clouds. I know Mosso has switched over to a request based pricing model and I realized that I am not sure exactly what a 'request' is.
I think that a hit, as tallied by AWStats, Webalizer, etc. would be the same thing as a request, but I wasn't 100% sure if that was the case with Mosso. I actually contacted Mosso support (someone I know is considering using them) to ask them for clarification on a request. They stated that a page with two images would be three requests, one for each image and one for the page itself. I asked if it was the same as 'hits' and they said no, it isn't. This didn't sound right to me, because my understanding of 'hits' is the same as how he described 'requests'.
So, I figured I would just ask the experts on WHT.
After signing up with zone, setup was delayed but support staff added 5 Gigs of storage to compensate. Thank you for that.
After almost 4 weeks of back and forth with support (we have the managed package), we are still not able to get emails delivered to Hotmail's Inbox. Sean & team have tried a few tweaks but email is still not getting through but end up in the junk folder.
At this point, the VPS is of no use to us since we cannot get emails delivered to Hotmail's Inbox (and many members have registered for newsletters using a Hotmail account).
I understand that Zone is to supply a fully managed VPS and they have. Everything works except getting emails through to Hotmail. We have left voicemails and support tickets to Sean (and billing) asking to see if they can make an exception for our special case and do a pro-rated refund for us (there are 5 months left and the first month was all trying to get the Hotmail issue resolved). But voicemails and support tickets have gone unanswered for a few days. Anyone else seeing this delay in reply from the Zone?
when i check apache status, i see one domain send many request to server, for example: domain.com 10.20.30.40 domain.com 10.20.30.40 domain.com 10.20.30.40 domain.com 10.20.30.40 domain.com 10.20.30.40 - - - how can i prevent this problem? this problem tease me and my server, because induce apache to work unremitting. Ram Usage is: 65%!
I have an somewhat unusual requirement. I need a hosted Vista or XP desktop somewhere.
This is not to host a server application. The reason I need it is that I need to give my staff access to an application that only runs on an XP or vista desktop environment, and I dont want the software in question installed on their pc, instead they will log on via remote desktop and use it that way. The application does *not* run on Win Server 2003.
I have looked high and low, but all the Windows VPS services on the market seem to be hosting Win Server 2003 exclusively, which is no use to me. Does anyone out there know if it is possible to get hosted XP or Vista anywhere?
I am aware that there are a couple of providers who will host a vmware vm for you but even they seem to be oriented towards Win Server, which is no use to me.
I found an IP that send a lot of request to my httpd. At least 20 requests/second. I think the guy behind that IP want to auto download some of my files from my server.
I already used .htaccess to block the ip. It works. But becasue there are too many request from this guy, it make the server a bit slow. Is there any method I can totally block this ip from a server level? Am I need to use a firewall?
I am working with XAMPP 5.6.8 (Apache 2.4.4, MySQL 5.5.32 and PHP 5.6.8 ) on a 64 bits Windows 7 Ultimate (Service Pack 1) Operating System.
I am working with an Arduino UNO and a WIFI Shield connected to the Apache server.
I am sure Arduino is connected to the WiFi network and to the server, and it also sends the GET request to the server.
Apparently, everything is OK because I can see the 200 OK message from the server in the Arduino serial monitor, but I find no trace of that request in the server log although all the requests made from the browser (by typewriting the server address in the browser address bar and pressing enter) appear in the server log.
I'm starting a small, local company in Illinois that will create web pages and host them for residents around my community such as lawyers, doctors, etc. I don't believe I should go with shared hosting because that would not be fair to my clients and I would like to give them good, reliable service so their business does well too. Which entry level, or basic dedicated server should I rent for this purpose? Since I'm just starting, I wouldn't want to overspend, but at the same time I do want performance for the few initial clients I receive. As my company grows, I'm sure I'll migrate into a more large scaled server(s). Any quotes or companies anyone can refer or think of? And possible quote for this type of server/situation.
