Disabling Direct Download

Oct 22, 2009

I have a website which has a FLV player serving .flv files which are hosted in the server. I notice that some users are directly downloading the files using the direct URL and they seem to be using download managers for that which is opening several Apache connections and open slows down Apache. I want to prevent this. I thought of preventing it using a .htaccess file but did not help. This is what I used:

<Files *>
order allow,deny
allow from
allow from localhost
deny from all

I thought this would work but it doesn't as it is blocking the FLV player from playing the file. Can anyone tell me the right way to do it?

Disabling POP And IMAP On CPanel

Nov 27, 2008

Disabling POP and IMAP on cPanel

We're using Google Apps to handle all e-mail for the domain, so we have no need for POP and IMAP services running on our server (and I'm always getting e-mails from LFD that show bots are trying to connect with random passwords and such) so I want to disable them, but keep SMTP active since some scripts running on our server use it and I don't feel like rewriting them right now.
I unchecked IMAP and POP in the WHM service manager to disable them, but it's still enabled and I'm able to connect and everything. How can I completely disable these 2 services?

PHP Security: Disabling Classes

Apr 4, 2009

We all know that some php funcions are dangerous, such as:

system, system_exec, passthru, shell, shell_exec, exec, popen, pclose, proc_open, proc_nice, proc_terminate, proc_get_status, proc_close, pfsockopen, leak, apache_child_terminate, posix_kill, posix_mkfifo, posix_setpgid, posix_setsid, posix_setuid, escapeshellcmd, escapeshellarg

Those functions can be disabled at php.ini using disable_functions option.

Now.. what about disable_classes option? I haven't seen anyone talking about this on the common security tutorials. What are your suggestions for this? What classes should be disabled?

Disabling Printk Message Supression?

Apr 18, 2008

I am trying to troubleshoot messages piling up in my /var/log/messages on CentOS 5 that look like this:

Apr 18 10:04:01 sc16 kernel: printk: 3 messages suppressed.
Apr 18 10:04:06 sc16 kernel: printk: 2 messages suppressed.
Apr 18 10:04:14 sc16 kernel: printk: 3 messages suppressed.
Apr 18 10:04:17 sc16 kernel: printk: 1 messages suppressed.
Apr 18 10:04:25 sc16 kernel: printk: 3 messages suppressed.
Apr 18 10:04:31 sc16 kernel: printk: 1 messages suppressed.
Apr 18 10:04:39 sc16 kernel: printk: 2 messages suppressed.

The messages are supressed so I can't see what they are or what is causing them.

How can I disable printk supression?

I have already tried:

echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/printk_ratelimit_burst
echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/printk_ratelimit

They don't seem to disable it... Any ideas?

Disabling SSH Root Access But Enabling SSH Keys How To Do That

Apr 3, 2009

in order to secure my server against instrusion, i disabled ssh root login and created a user for myself. however in order to access the user i need to enable SSH Password authentication

I dont enable password authentication all the time and i keep it disabled unless i need to do something via ssh.

Now my question will be, is there a way to keep the user i created and keep the root login disabled and password authentication disabled but use ssh keys for the user i created?

I was informed that if i opt to login to ssh via the user i created, the only way to do that is to enable password authentication as it cannot work with ssh keys. is this true?

I really hope someone can help me how to use the user i created together with ssh keys so i dont have to enable password authentication when loggin to ssh

Apache :: Disabling Re-Execution On Fail-Recovery

Jun 4, 2014

At times as I'm developing, due to some coding error in PHP on my part, particularly calling a COM object, the apache server crashes. I'm delighted that it recovers, but in so doing it always tries to rerun the query that crashed it, which just causes another crash, and so on. Is there some way of getting round this, so that it recovers but the problematic code is not rerun?

Dns (using Direct Admin)

Oct 11, 2009

Well what i can i say that direct admin is really pain in the ass, twice i asked in their forum but it was queued for moderation then not published. i'm having a problem setting up my domain 100% correctly.

let me explain more:

Before 1 or 2 weeks, i re-build the server and installed direct admin, but its really harder than other panels and i couldn't figure it 100% how to do,
my website now is running but i have the following problems

1- domain name can not be solved by all people. when i try to ping it it says its not resolvable, while the domain opens for most of users except for very few which gives an error saying can not connect to server

2- i get this error when using intodns.com
while everything else is ok

3- some of users in some countries access home/admin/domains/sharedip/... while others access home/admin/domains/mydomain.com/... which is the correct one, this causes problems but i temporary solved the problem by uploading files into both folders

Direct Admin And 64 Bit OS

Feb 20, 2008

I am trying to install Direct Admin on Cent OS 4.5 ( 64 bit ), but i am constantly getting library files error, one after another,

Example -

./directadmin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


./directadmin: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


./directadmin: error while loading shared libraries: libz.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

goes on .........

But if i install 32 Bit library files (RPM), for them, they vanish and next error comes, with new file missing

I have tried loading 10 RPM's of 32 bit, but i cant go now forever...

Is there anyway to install Direct Admin on 64 Bit Cent OS?

Is there any 1 RPM file, which i can install and then Direct Admin wont give library problems.. ?

Direct Admin & 123-Reg

Sep 30, 2008

As in recent threads i have posted about getting a DA lifetime licence within the next month. I currently get my domains from 123-reg but i am just wondering if someone could help me or if they have an answer to my question!

If i bought a domain from 123-reg and then got a lifetime licence from DA and had it installed onto my server what happens to the nameservers? Like when DA install it onto my box would they sort out the nameservers for my domain aswell like ns1.mydomain.com, ns2.mydomain.com or would i have to pay extra for them?
