After enabling File Sharing in Plesk 12, the service appears to function correctly. If only a few files are uploaded, they are ok. However, after uploading a directory structure with a handful of MB, and subdirectories, File Sharing stops. It shows at the top of the screen:
"Internal error: The File Sharing service is temporarily unavailable because the site is down for maintenance."
it also says in the main window:
"Unable to load folders list."
Clicking on Upload Files, that dialog also shows "Unable to load folders list."
I have checked that the ownership of those files on the server is www-data:www-data , and that permissions are 755 for directories and 644 for files, because it seems like ownership and permissions could be an issue, however that doesn't fix it. Removing all the files in the share does fix it, however that's not useful if the files should be available for sharing.
I tried searching for this, but haven't found the solution. I currently have a VPS I'm not using for anything else, so I thought it would make a good file server for sharing files between my home and office computers. Ideally, I'd like to do this via SMB/Samba so I could map a windows network drive to a directory on the VPS from both locations.
I've set up SAMBA and it works great via the VPS (ie. smbclient returns that it is sharing the directory, etc...). The problem is I can't get either of the remote machines to connect. I read about a way to do tunneling in PuTTY, which worked. In essence I created a Microsoft Loopback device on the remote machine and ran putty forwarding the samba share port. This worked perfectly, in that I could type "10.0.0.1" (the MS loopback interface) and access my VPS shares on my home machine. However, this isn't ideal, as you have to keep PuTTY running to be able to access the shared drive and you have to keep a live SSH session going.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how to cut out PuTTY from the mix and just be able to do "vps.hostname.comsharename" directly from both the home and office machine. I gather this would be trivial if my home machine and the VPS were on the same network. Would a VPN solution make sense here? Any good recommendations? I think a VPN connection would be much easier to setup and deal with than the SSH tunneling solution.
Searching on here revealed adding a line "hosts allow" with the remote IP into smb.conf; however, that did not work for me. It's still as if the remote machines cannot see the VPS through SMB.
Im doing an iphone app related to audio recording. I would like for the user to be able to share these recordings on twitter/facebook. Since you can't encode to mp3 (licensing issue i think), I'll have to do it server side, and then host those mp3s for some period of time (week or month).
I'm wondering if anyone can recommend an inexpensive hosting solution I should look at. Most of the cheaper hosting plans I see would probably consider this as file sharing and not allow it in their TOS.
I thought I would be able to use google appengine, and pay only for whats used... but since it doesn't do direct disk access I don't think there's a way for me to convert to mp3 with them.
It would be private, accessed by about 40-200 students from my faculty. We would share scanned documents and Powerpoint slides that we receive from professors, as well as the latest news such as changes of lecture times etc.
Optimal would be something like Google Groups, but with larger storage (5 GB min). I am therefore considering running ubuntu LAMP on a basic Linode.
what software can i run that provides my group with a Google-groups-like web interface? RSS capability is a plus, so is an easy setup.
I just setup my new Windows 2008 Server. My backed up files are on a Win XP machine. Now, I've tried everything I can think of to connect the two so I can transfer them over. But I can't. Neither machine can see the other, but they are on the same subnet and workgroup. No changes I make to sharing on either machine seems to work.
i want to build a fileshering web site, i know from the start that trafic to my site will be high becouse it is not a regular file host site and i belive that i will have a lot of downloads as service will be mostly free of charge.
from what i understand i will need massive servers or at least good servers with high data transfer speed , reliable up time , very big storage space and massive bandwith.
i understand that budget should be high for this and i am not cutting on budget, i thought on first starting low and then upgrading but the low point of this poject will still need to have the best i can find both in speed ,storage and bandwith.
can you reccomend what service or way i can use for this project?
what servers rapidshare use? megaupload? i know i am still at start but i want a clean start.
I have no intention of trying to make some video/file sharing website.
Some people might recognize me as being somewhat cynical in my replies to the people who post these sorts of messages.
What I'm curious about is, after having occasionally told people "You'll make significantly more money throwing the money you intend to waste on this project into a traditional investment..." I still see new people every week asking for the same help.
Now, I understand very few people are going to give up their dream and just throw in the towel because some random guy says their dream is stupid, they are stupid, and may god have mercy on their soul...
But, I don't (always) necessarily try to dissuade people from starting this sort of project simply to be a prick.
What I'd like to find out is if there are any people out there who've created a successful video/file sharing website who'd like to help others out...
Like, what advice they would have for people who want to get into starting a similar site.
How much bandwidth does your site use?
What's the URL?
How are you making money from the site?
How long did it take for your site to make a profit? etc etc...
Alternatively, if you've tried to start a video/file sharing website and given up on those plans...
I'm building a kind of a file sharing site also with video conversions ( convert a full DVD to flash and stream) and if i can find more ideas, even more features. It won't be free (i'm not sure which way to go though, subscription-based or pay per bandwidth + storage) and it will support download managers. I'm not sure which way to go : Joyent or dedicated servers with RAIDs. If i distribute files over servers, and a users wants the files to be converted to flv etc., it will increase the server load, ( and if i put a lot of users in 1 server it will increase the load even more) so it won't be very good.
So i thought SAN for this, but couldn't find any hosts serving it ( especially for a reasonable price ). Joyent is close enough (Amazon S3 is very very expensive), but although bandwidth and storage prices seem good, server power is low ( and very expensive if higher ) Which way should i go?
We have Panel Plesk 11.5.30 in Windows 2008 R2. when you go to File Sharing in all the Subscriptions, appears this error: Internal error: Unable to access File Sharing repository with the system user name "admin": wrong username or password
This happen since we do the update to the new version 11.5.30 ...
I have a lot of questions here so if you can't answer them all I understand. even pointing me somewhere where I could get the answers would be appreciated; hardware sites focusing on server hardware, forums focusing on such, etc.
we plan to have three different types of servers:
- db server (self explanatory. mysql. for forums, mysql driven sites.)
- file server (lots of files around ~2-10MB, consistant 70mbps right now, but we want more room for upgrades. needs a LOT of storage room.)
- web server (lots of php files, but also static things like plain html, images, etc. also includes all misc services for the setup-- dns, etc.)
could I be given a rundown for which hardware each of the three should have? I don't need specifics, even just knowing that more ram is important here while cpu doesn't matter as much, or that the fastest disks available are a must, etc would all be valuable info for me. despite that, I certainly wouldn't mind specific hypothetical hardware configs.
for the database server I'm assuming the more ram the better. not entirely sure about the cpu? also not positive on disks...
for the fileserver, how much ram would be practical or useful? disk io will be an issue I'm because plenty of people will be pulling files at once so the disk needs to read from multiple places. scsi (and even raptors) are not an option as we need 750GB+ of space on a reasonable budget. more ram will take some load of of the disks, but how much is neccessary / reasonable?
for the web server I'm assuming cpu first, then ram, but it'll likely need less ram than the db server?
I'm more lost on the disks than anything. scsi on the fileserver is not an option under any circumstances due to $/GB. for the db & web server I'm willing to pay for scsi if the performance increase really does warrant the extra money, but I'd like to be convinced before shelling it out. if you have benchmarks geared at server hardware when it comes to disks I'd really appreciate it.
also, what's the best way to network these together when colocated? each one with a dual gigabit ethernet port and then the communications go to and from the router?
i'm running a forum and a few other things on a futurehosting VPS plan which is running centos.
we changed to futurehosting because our shared hosting was definately not coping with it, so we had to make a quick changeover... unfortunately i dont have too much experience with setting up mailservers in linux(which seems to be a massive complicated mess involving a million different services).
i'm wondering if anyone knows any guides to setting up a mail server + have a managable web interface to add user accounts/setup forwarding rules and such that works well with centos?
or better yet, is futurehosting capable of doing it for me
