Im trying to setup FTP on Windows 2003 Standard. Multiple people will need access, the problem Im having is how do I make it to where certain ftp accounts only have access to certain folders and certain ftp accounts have access to the whole root directory of that folder?
For instance under websitefolder you have a folder called bobsfolder. I want bob to login and just be "jailed" to bobsfolder, but when websitefolderadmin logs in they have access to the root of websitefolder and all its subfolders.
I am going to buy my own server and colocate this at a data center. This server is going to only host one website with Mysql as backend database. I notice there are 3 different Windows 2003 server, Web, Standard and Enterprise. I am leaning toward the Standard version. Can I use Window 2003 Standard Edition to run my the web server?
I see most of the providers offering Windows 2003 STD license $20-$30 per month. I wonder how is that done, do they buy licenses in bulk and then lease them monthly basis or there is an agreement with Microsoft. I have a few linux boxes colocated and would like to procure Windows licenses on my own. Also how to go for licenses for VPS server?
Posted this as an add-on to another question I had in the Tech forum, had no reply, perhaps I posted in the wrong forum. Posting here instead:
I noticed MS has lifted some of the restriction concerning the Web Server edition, it's like half the price of Standard.
I'm mainly going to be hosting a couple of separate web sites, run ASP.Net and PHP, along with some database servers (currently considering SQL Server Express and MySQL).
Email server is being considered, though our load isn't too great, it's just for a couple of friends and myself. We're also intending to run game servers off it (Counter-Strike Source, Call of Duty series, etc.) on occasions.
Would the Web Server edition suffice for these? Or is it still technically limited/has license restrictions, and I will need at least the standard edition?
I may also intend to serve streaming windows Media files.
I use Windows Plesk v 11.5.30 with Mailenable Standard Edition 7.0 version. In mailenable site i saw a new version of Mailenable standard version (7.5.1). URL...Can i download and update Mailenable version of my Windows PLesk? If i made this change and have problem can i do downgrande later?
With Windows 2003 server, there are comprehensive lists of what you need to do to secure the server before use. For Windows 2008, I wonder is there such a list? Or is it true as what I heard from Microsoft that it is already secured out of the box?
Anyone has any resources on the hardening or preparation of 2008 for server hosting uses?
I'm making a reasonably uninformed comparison here. Since Windows Vista is noted to be more resource intensive and slower than Win XP, are we right in assuming that Windows 2008 is slower than Windows 2003?
For instance, with two boxes with an identical hardware setup but the two different server OSes, will the same application like, say MySQL run slower on the Win 2008 machine?
on the server I have ASP access sites and ASP with SQL server sites.
When I load the sites they are fast, but then after a random period of time, I click a link but the page just sits there saying waiting for host, I can refresh but no difference, then all of a sudden the site will start working again and be fast until the next time.
Does anyone know why the site can be fast then sort of just hang for a while and if so, any suggestions on fixing this would be brilliant.
I am trying to find a firewall for windows 2003 64 bit edition. So far I have tried Visnetic, which doesn't work, and comodo will not even have a beta version out until May. Anyone know of another that will work on 64 bit windows?
I am running a server with Windows Enterprise 2003 installed, it has 32GB RAM installed but in control panel I can only see 15.5GB RAM, I understand graphics cards etc will take some of the RAM so I suspect Windows is only seeing 16GB, instead of the installed 32GB, anyone any idea as to why I do not see all 32GB.
i wanted to buy a dedicated server and when i had questions about 2003 web, i talked to hivelocity live support and i think it was dave who told me that Windows 2003 web has a restriction for mysql which was 512 KB. I myself is planning to own a gameserver that uses java and mysql and i know for sure uses much much more space than 512 KB. Is this true that 2003 restricts the size of your DB and when your DB reaches 512 kb, it can no longer be used? Also, is the windows 2008 web licensing fee the same as windows 2003 web?
