Dreamhost Shared Servers Configuration?

Jan 29, 2007

I was wondering what are typical configurations of Dreamhost servers used for their shared hosting. I guess they probably have something like 4x 500GB HDDs just for the few customers they have and who host their music collections on their account ....

Question To Hosts About PHP Configuration. Do Most Servers Have The Following Modules

Apr 25, 2007

This is a random question and I wasn't sure exactly where to start. But, I have developed some invoice software that use a few PHP modules. My host has these enabled by default, but I wanted to see if most hosts have these enabled or not. Heck, they might even by standard php configuration, I'm just not sure. Here they are:

PHP 5 with the following modules:

- dom
- dom-xslt
- gd
- mysql
- mbstring
- bcmath

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Migration Between Servers - Error With DNS Configuration

Feb 18, 2015

Yesterday I migrated a domain with the migration tool from a Debian 7.6 Plesk 12.0.18 MU35 box to a Debian 7.6 Plesk 12.0.18 MU35 box

This domain have a simple DNS configuration. The A registry for the domain.com was an own IP instead the IP of the server. Rest of the DNS configuration was the same.

After migration the A registry for the domain.com was an own IP too (as expected) but also the A registry for mail.domain.com

Before migration, in the old server:

A domain.com x.x.x.x (own ip)
A mail.domain.com y.y.y.y (server ip)

After migration, in the new server:

A domain.com x.x.x.x
A mail.domain.com x.x.x.x

The migration had changed the IP for mail.domain.com for the IP of the A registry for domain.com

Very strange. I double-checked it (as the domain in the "old" server was suspended)

Client donĀ“t have access to the control panel, so no changes done.

DNS And Shared Servers

Mar 18, 2008

If I have 'mydomain.url' registered with company A, and that points to a shared web server with company B, how does the web server know which of the pages it hosts to serve to the visitors, since they are all on the same IP?

GreenSql - Anyone Using This On Shared Hosting Servers?

Apr 16, 2009

Sorry to be always posting these "Anyone use such and such on shared hosting servers?" But it's pretty much the best thing I can think of instead of experimenting and going through all problems myself first. I guess all of us likes to see someone else try something out first and give feedback on it before attempting to implement himself.

I want to try this GreenSql as a way to help prevent user's web apps from being hacked using sql injection. Ive tried suhosin sql protections in the past but they simply don't work, but there is no kind of docs or even simple explanation anywhere about it on hardened-php site so that's probably why.

If anyone here uses this, has used it and knows anything about using this on a shared server please share your experiences. I am going to implement it on a test server no matter what but would be nice to know that this isnt one of those things with insane default rulesets.

It looks real cool and I will be giving it a try myself probably tonight and tomorrow. If anyone is interested I will post my findings.

As the rest of you hosts know we cannot guarantee 100% security or any kind of hack proofness. But in my time I have found out taking some steps to help preventing weak and outdated php apps can help in preventing disgruntled wep-app-hacked clients from making a crusade on the web saying you servers are insecure, crappy and all that. Isn't a sure fire way but I think it helps.

Shared File Space For All Web Servers

Mar 3, 2008

Is it normal practice to have shared filespace that multiple web servers can access? Then I just provide my developers access to that filespace (one server, instead of multiple users on multiple servers) to manage files for different sites easily... right? (also meaning multiple servers can serve the same content)

So.. what would be the best way to do this? We're talking Linux systems here by the way. What sort of specs would such a server need?

I *think* it's NAS that I'm trying to get at.. unsure though if that's correct or not!

Servers In Europe W/ Unmetered 100Mbit (SHARED)

Mar 26, 2008

My friend asked me earlier if I knew any places in EU that allow IRC, have Unmetered 100Mbit (SHARED, not Dedicated), and allow torrents. I didn't know so I come to WHT for help.

The host must have:

Unmetered 100Mbit Shared
IRC Allow
Allow Torrents
DDoS Protection (not required, but is a bonus)
Must be in Europe

I'm unsure if asking this is allowed (since the host must allow torrents), if it isn't allowed please lock the thread.

Architecture For Shared Hosting Servers Cluster

Apr 11, 2008

I am planning for an architecture for the cluster of shared hosting servers. I intend to run around 10000 websites initially on Linux as well as Windows servers. I am planning for a load balanced setup and failover cluster with SAN or a similar storage solution where all the data will be stored. I am looking for suggestions on the best possible architecture which can accomodate all the above things. Also I need to know what are the best options available for load balancers and clusters.

DreamHost VPS

Sep 8, 2007

Recently I had a "falling out" with DreamHost. I had their downtime and everything everyone else experiences, and I was ok with that. I could look past the small problems and love DreamHost for the good things it offered. The good cheap things(Shared Hosting).

I was running a small video blog(externally hosted videos) with WordPress as my street pimp. Everything was going great. It started out slow, as most sites do, but I was really happy to be seeing 1.5-5K unique hits daily. This went on for a good 2 months lovely. I was very satisfied. Well one day I became "Mr Big" and hit 12K in about 10 hours. DreamHost quickly turned my account off, as I was affecting the other sites on the server that I shared. Understandable. Well they eventually referred me to their VPS (dreamhostps.com)and I quickly signed up, thinking I had just solved all my problems.

Haha, what a lying **** she turned out to be. Promising me love and compassion, but only bringing deceit and pain. Spending an extra $25/mo(250 MB/250 MHz guaranteed) I thought I was golden.
Now I cant get 50 uniques an hour without getting a Internal Server Error. WHY DREAMHOST?! WHY MUST YOU HATE ME??

Im currently looking to get away from DH. I cant stand these problems. I need something that can withstand 15K unique hits on a mildly modified WP site serving external videos. What are my options?

I guess I should also include my budget... which isnt much at all. Im not going above $50/mo, but would love to get something around $35-45.

Dreamhost ...

Oct 31, 2009

I spent an afternoon completely away from computers, and when I got back, I received this email from the Dreamhost Security Bot:

We have noticed your myacct user causing a large amount of load on the webserver. We also noticed that domains under this user are running outdated web software that may be hackable. Often times when domains get hacked the hackers will launch malicious processes that use a great deal of CPU time and thus increase the load on the machine caused by your user. This does not necessarily mean that your sites are hacked, but they could be. To ensure that your user is not compromised and contributing to server load unnecessarily (and, also not engaging in illegal activity typically associated with these types of hacks) we ask that you review the following and act accordingly.

Comment: so far, so good

Most commonly hacking exploits of this nature occur through known vulnerabilities in outdated copies of web software (blogs, galleries, carts, wikis, forums, CMS scripts, etc.) running under your domains. To secure your sites you should:

1) Update all pre-packaged web software to the most recent versions available from the vendor. The following site can help you determine if you're running a vulnerable version:

Joomla (v1.5.8) : /home/myacct/disabled site.net/ (OUTDATED!)

I disabled this site six months ago.

Joomla (v1.5.12) : /home/myacct/joomla1512site.com/ (OUTDATED!)

There were three of these

WordPress (v2.8.4) : /home/myacct/wp284site.org/ (OUTDATED!)

There were six of these

- WordPress installations need to be updated to the current release of 2.8.5.

- Joomla installations need to be updated to the respective current secure release: 1.0.15 or 1.5.14.

- Any old/outdated/archive installations that you do not intend to maintain need to be deleted from the server.

The (OUTDATED!) domains above have been disabled by renaming the domain directory to end in "_DISABLED_FOR_POSSIBLE_EXPLOIT__CONTACT_DREAMHOST". Please do not reinstate them until you are ready to immediately upgrade them, or until you have already upgraded them.

So, nine of my sites were disabled, for a period of four hours, with NO ADVANCE WARNING from Dreamhost.

I send them a response, pointing out that:

1. I run a tripwire program, integrit, on a daily basis. It showed no evidence that any of these sites had been hacked.

2. My access logs showed no increase in activity on this date.

They wrote, "We have noticed your myacct user causing a large amount of load on the webserver." Well, I certainly would like some details on this, but I haven't received any.

Here's part of the response I got:

In the case of some of the domains that were disabled your softwares were
years out-of-date.

no. Wordpress 2.8.4 was released August 12, 2009. Joomla 1.5.12 was released July 1, 2009. The only software that was "years" out of date was on two sites that had been disabled by me six months ago.

It's clear that these people are making things up as they go along. All they really had to do was send me a note saying, "Hey, Bob, could you update these Wordpress and Joomla sites sometime in the next few days?"

Is Dreamhost Reliable?

Jan 5, 2009

Just read about some deal they're having where they're selling you a domain and 2 years of unlimited bandwidth hosting for 24 dollars or so. Is this legit?

Is quality sacrificed for this kind of pricing?

I'm currently with downtownhost and they are amazing by the way but if it's that cheap, I might be forced to switch.

DreamHost, That Was The Last Straw

Nov 2, 2009

I've been a DreamHost customer for a few years now. I like to remain loyal to one brand, but I just can't stand DreamHost's down times (My website is down as I am writing this). I enjoy their cpanel a lot, and I was wondering if anyone can suggest me a few alternatives. I am currently on shared hosting with over 10+ domains. I read about, ANHosting, BlueHost, and HostGator. I want something fast, and I might even settle for a cheap VPS. However, I don't know how much resources do I use, so we will have to work out the details if I choose a VPS.

DreamHost Catches

May 25, 2008

when you sign up for DreamHost account, the billing page says

Promo codes/referrers are for first time customers only. Therefore, if you use one you may not host a domain ever previously hosted with DreamHost on this account.)

I have already used to for $ 97 off coupon for one year, so if i sign up again with new account,

is there any chances to get caught

Let me know if someone has experience

Another DreamHost Victim!

Nov 27, 2008

My account which was hosted for over a year with DreamHost has been disabled on 25th November without any prior notice or reasonable explanation. They only said:

Your account has been disabled for Terms of Service violations.

Specifically, the clause you violated is:

Customer agrees to not engage in activities pertaining to Black Hat SEO, Spamdexing, and so-called "Scraper sites." These can all have a severely detrimental effect on server performance and are not permitted. You must find hosting elsewhere. We will not re-enable your account under any circumstances.

Terri H
I swear I have never engaged in such activities. I asked them to clarify the action and tell me the problem domain. But they told me nothing about that. Even if I did such things (I swear I didn't), do they have a right to prevent my access to my files and databases? How can I move to a new host without these data?

I have multiple domains on my account and 2 of them is very important to me. One of them have 9000 unique hits per day and brings a good adsense income. I cannot rebuild these websites because they are products of two years effort.

Now I'm begging them to let me access my files and mysql databases but they do not answer my tickets and emails. I lost my bearings and don't know what to do!

Low Blow By DreamHost

May 3, 2009

I was disturbed by a posting on DreamHosts blog. I try to stay current on hosting news and sometimes it involves looking at others Blogs. This example is not NOT to treat a customer


Even though the customer contacted the wrong department, this is NOT the way to handle these issues. I have personally received calls on my personal cell phone because they found it on one of the domains I own (whois I assume). I still take the call and work with the customer to resolve. I will never even think about doing this. Your Thoughts?

Any Hosting Better Than Dreamhost

Sep 9, 2008

I have use 2 years in dreamhost and feel good until This month!

Some of my websites becoming slow when visit. some are not!

I write to them and they said they can move my 1 website to another apache, they think maybe problems on apache. BUT after they moved sucessfull, my website is not reachable! and said: bad http-conff etc.

These days are very bad experience with them, today i found they start their unlimited ALL hositng package, i am not sure if this is related with my website was slow.

Acturally, I do not need so big and traffic hosting on DH, i rather to choose a good performance and speed hosting, NOT a oversell hosting company!

I must say: i feel it is ok in past years, but recent i am not happy with their hosting service.

My question: Is there a better hosting company than dreamhost? i need 10g spaces,200-400gb month traffic,can host 3-5 domains.

month charge under 9usd should be more better!

Most Dreamhost Web Sites Hackable

Jul 6, 2007

I signed up a Dreamhost account, and just "to see", I entered my account with my terminal. I access the /home directory and found that there's a symlink for each user that links to a directory under a hidden directory, I don't know why, but each account is located under something like this:



So basically you can find out easily who's hosted with you, just try accessing johnsmithblog.com and see if it's matching. Then you find out that a fair amount of the users hosted on the server use popular CMS/blog/forum software, ie: Wordpress. The only thing you have to do is create a PHP script with two lines of code: an include that points to the database config file (follow the same default structure of the CMS source tree used) a print function to display each variable or constant used to access the database This simple. Then, access http://mysql.johnsmithblog.com, when you're prompted for username/password, just type the database information and you have cracked the web site. How is it possible to be that simple?
