We are running cpanel on one of our servers. Several cron jobs were deleted from the cron panel of one acct. I have no idea of the paths to re-enter these jobs. Is their a log file on the server that will show cron job history from previous runs so I can recover the proper paths?
the caching directory I created for eaccelerator deleted by itself. There are 2 copies of eaccelerator, one for apache and one for litespeed. The one for Apache got deleted today. Could it be due to the fact that the directory hasn't been modified or accessed in nearly 2 weeks? It's been that long since Apache was used.
I created a backup script to backup data to a separate drive using Robocopy. I used the /mir switch without knowing that it purges all the files and folders which are not present in the source directory. How do I recover the lost data? I tried using EasyRecovery professional, but it could not retrieve the deleted data.
I was getting segmentation fault errors in logwatch, so I asked them if this is a problem with the server.
They suggested an fschck. No problem, I suggested they do this because I am not technically-inclined enough to trust myself.
They inform me they need to unmount to prevent corruption or data loss.. fine. they inform me there's an application or configuration that is preventing them from doing so. No problem. I asked them to restore my sites (which began showing as 404 since they began)... they didn't seem to know what I was talking about.
Now my ticket as been escalated to tech support. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN. No scan was performed! All of my accounts were WIPED. My sql databases are still there... but EVERYTHING relating to any account on my server is EMPTY.
I'm attempting a home backup restore now. I have backups of everything, but this was not my choice of events for a Monday morning at 3am!
I should also mention I am getting chargebacks up the wazoo right now, because my customers are thinking I took their money and ran!
I am facing a problem with one of my Windows 2003 servers. The websites hosted on the server use IUSR_computername user for anonymous authentication for the websites. Please note that I have anonymous authentication disabled for FTP. The problem is that every night the IUSR_computername user gets deleted automatically and all the websites start asking for password as there is no user for the anonymous browsing of the websites. I checked the event log, but could not find anything. How do I find why the user is getting deleted automatically?
I wanted to post about a site I'm very concerned and frustrated with, HostJury.
It's simple. The other day, one of our web hosting customers posted our HostJury URL in our customer forums. Since then, a few of our customers saw followed the link and decided to submit reviews about us, which was very pleasing.
Friday night, I saw we had our first 4 reviews. Suddenly yesterday (Saturday) afternoon I checked on the page, and saw all of them had been deleted.
But I looked up the reviewers. They were all posted by legit customers of ours which I was able to find in our customer database, so the reviews are definitely legit.
I am especially frustrated as those 4 had rated us very high, so these are important reviews that have been removed by HostJury.
I don't understand what's going on here...
o Legit reviews o We didn't ask them to review us, they did it on their own o We didn't bribe our reviewers o We didn't reward our reviewers
So what's the problem, HostJury? These kind of instances are interfering with honesty in the hosting industry.
I have a very strange problem concerning iptables. First I created some rules to accept INPUT to ssh for my home ip address. I also added rules for RELATED,ESTABLISHED (input chain) and NEW for chain output. When I enter iptables -L it shows the rules I just created. However, when I look again to the chains, the list was empty again with no rules showing, so seems like it deleted them automatically? How is that possible?
my site is down for 2 days. this started 2 weeks ago when the vps started to work very bad and my site has been down more time than up. they closed the topic: "horrible experience with liquidweb" [url] but I still have not a solution and now somebody accidentally I suppose, deleted the database.

My sport community is in the worst nightmare I could imagine :-(
We have been with Apollo hosting for 5 or so years. 10 days ago, our entire site went down. After waiting around 4 days and hours of dealing with tech support, they got a shell of our website back up. Their excuse for deleting it was that they ran a script on their servers that was corrupt, which in error, deleted our site.
They were unable to restore our database, SQL, php, search functions, etc. as they said they deleted them and did not have a back up as databases took up too much room on servers!! And they cannot restore what is no longer there. We have to rebuild our database all over again, hundreds of hours of work with property descriptions and photos, forms, etc.
After this experience with Apollo hosting our fear level is high and our trust level is low.
We need help with finding a new web host. Currently paying Apollo $ 30. mo for shared hosting.
We need Front Page extension, pph,SQL. Want web host that backs up entire website daily on tape that stores off-site. I have researched some on web hosting review sites and better business bureau online, and find many complaints for various webhosts.
For some reason non-exisiting/delete FTP accounts still have access to the server. When I tried to delete the account, it gave an error stating that a process is using it, however, it was not being used at the time. From there, the ftp account was removed from the list, but for some reason it can still log in as if it exists.
