I have mounted NFS part. but when copying a big file the speed is OK like 5-6MB/s but when starting to copying all other (small files) speed is like 20-200KB.s What is the reason and is it way to improve the speed or use other way to mount drive remotely and preserve the same permissions after backup?
I moved from shared host to VPS a few days back. Since the move, the site becomes slow during particular time of the day. It appeared to be an issue of cron run by their another client and after promising that they would move that client to another node (I have spent more than 25 days to follow up on this till now) they backed off from their words but informed me about an alternative. Now, they say that the cron of that client was executing many scripts and they have spaced those scripts.
I am looking for a long-term host and was wondering:
1. VPS provides a minimum guaranteed stuff so what is the use of that guarantee if one client can make the server crawl (imagine 5 minutes or more to open a site).
2. Can a host be trusted who does not honour words.
I have a website that just serves small files, under 10kb most of them. I just need a server that lets me ftp the file to it, set up subdomains and domains for one website. Don't need to manage mysql or anything. Not even php. Just serve files.
A good fast OS? Something like lighttpd? Ioono?
I'm currently doing 600gb of bandwidth per month. I'm expecting to do about 1000gb by the end of the year. Would a small server like a pentium 4 be able to handle just serving files?
I'm trying to migrate my vps to another server, and basically I need to move the entire public_html directory from first server to the second. As its almost 2.5 gb, downloading and ftping isn't really an option, so I'm thinking i need to tar and then gzip it, and then somehow transfer it diectly.
so my question is what is the proper command to use for tar and gzip in this case? and what method to transfer. should i use wget or is there a better way. Once i have it on my destination server how do i untar it, and what path will it untar to?
I'm working on a web site which will basically be a flash games portal. I have a dedicated server running Apache 2 on a 100mbit dedicated line but my download speed for large files (flash files of over 5mbs) is really slow. I am thinking this is because of Apache but I don't know much about this. I've read that I should change for a lighter http server for serving static files. The way my server is set up is I have 2 virtual machines running, one doing the PHP processing and the other serving static files, both running Apache, so if I have to change HTTP server for the static files it would be very easy. Although I am not sure if this is necessary or if I can tune Apache to push files faster than this.
Hi guys, I've been having problems trying to edit my php.ini file which I think I've now fixed.
The whole reason I wanted to do this was because I've just moved to Media Temple from another hosting company and I'm having a couple of problems with the switchover.
Basically I use a CMS system to add properties which appear on the main website. I also upload PDFs and images. On the old hosting company, the PDFs and images went into folders called dnDir/pdf and dnDir/images but on Media Temple, they are going in to a folder called tmp. I really want them to go to the same place as they used to.
Is this an issue with php.ini that I need to rectify? If so, could you point me in the right direction?
i have a lot of files in about 100-200 subfolders and im wondering if anyone has a script i can run to move the files from the subfolders (mostly .zip files) to the root folder then extract the zips (which wil normally result in a .rar file) then extract that file and leave the extracted files in the same folder so i can easily access them, the folders/files are old backups of one of my computers that i need to get data out of. i have access to linux and windows systems whichever is easiest
I am searching for a way to move only the new files uploaded to this there directory's to the other server in this way /home/mark/public_html/vb/customavatars (new files) ===> /home/mark/public_html/images/customavatars
/home/mark/public_html/vb/customprofilepics (new files) ===> /home/mark/public_html/images/customprofilepics
I have tried to use Rsync in this way as i have a internal connection between my server but it's not work rsync -a rsync://192.168.0.2/vb/customprofilepics/ /home/mark/public_html/images/customprofilepics rsync -a rsync://192.168.0.2/vb/customavatars/ /home/mark/public_html/images/customavatars rsync -a rsync://192.168.0.2/vb/signaturepics/ /home/mark/public_html/images/signaturepics
I've got 25 domains on a Virtuozzo/Plesk8.6/CentOS5 VPS. Each domain has one up-to-date install of WordPress, most have very little traffic (average 200mb per month), maybe 2 domains get 5-7gb traffic per month.
I monitor port 80 connections and rarely see more than 10 at a time. That should in my opinion be no problem at all for a VPS with 768mb guaranteed ram and 2.4ghz cpu. I've got 30gb hard drive spare too.
But.... about 8 or 10 times a day it grinds to a complete halt: server load at 500-1000%, sites timing out, plesk takes 3mins to load, often I can't even connect with SSH, and the plesk web server, apache
80 seconds sounds like a huge amount of time for a MySQL insert to me! Does anyone know if this is likely to be the cause of my trouble? Some problem with Plesk and the database? Or could it be something else?
I am having some serious speed issues with my 1Gbit server at FDC. After opening a ticket, they've simply dismissed it as a server configuration problem. However I am convinced it isn't because certain ISP's (usually universities) get good speeds, usually 700kb/sec but the vast majority of my users get between 20-50 kb/sec and it's causing a lot of complaints.
Furthermore I have other servers with FDC which are 100mbit which perform better than my 1 Gbit one. There are no server bottlenecks (CPU/RAM/HDD), since I've closely monitored them (PRTG) and they aren't even heavily utilised. So the problem is with the network at some point.

where abouts you are downloading from, your ISP and net connection. Wget's from servers are also welcome as are traceroutes.
I'll be running a small site with the Vivvo CMS (www.vivvo.net) I'm guessing 256mb/ram would do it. I do need a control panel... Support is key as well 24/7 would be nice... Budget... lets start small, I know I get what i pay for however.
I want to make a small review of 59Box , chinese hosting company that i pleased to work with for last period.
I needed a dedicated server placed in China and started to search the web . I did a few conversations mostly on messenger with a few companies , but it was very strange for me that they sometimes even didn't knew to answer my very simple questions about upload/download speed limitation, trial period,they clients web sites for test connection etc. So i found it not so easy to find some professional loooking company with good and quick support in China.
After of few days of searching in forums i found 2 recomendations, one is for 59Box and second is for HiChina so i contacted them both.
I was amazded by very quick response from 59Box and started my conversation with them. Ken , this is the name of guy who helped me all the way , answered my questions extremely fast , and all of them was cleared . Hichina answered on the next day , also with very good and detailed mail , sample contract attached etc . But i seen no reason to try them cause Ken's proposal was good for me and I liked his support.
I paid by Paypal and my server was ready in 24 hours as promised by Ken. Since then it's running with no problems. Line is very good for my needs. Latency is good and connections is stable.
So i'll recommend this company to everybody who looking for server in china with great support and good prices.
I'm an old customer of level3hosting, after that company run away [url]i need another place to host my forum . My friend recommend me cmbhosting [url]with good offer. And i go with them. After making payment via paypal, i got my vps information.
I have a medium vbb forum , having about 400 visitor online same time ( cookie set to 2000 ) but cpu never load high more than 1.0. I'm happy with it.
After i run my site two weeks, i got big problem. Someone attacked my site and my site was hacked. I contacted CMBhosting via Chat Live Support, and they helped me to fight.
They setup firewall and check all my file to fix error. After that, my site run and run . The day after that, my site was attacked again, they protected me again . And now, my site run without problem. I'm happy with their support, fast and great. With $10 per month, it's a great service.
Just a small note from me about my experiences with EuroVPS, I transferred to them from Siteground Shared Hosting about 1 1/2 years ago, I run a fairly busy vbulletin forum, I say it's 'busy' because siteground said my site was consuming too many resources and they basically gave me 7 days to upgrade to their VPS or they said they would shut my site down, so I promptly transferred to EuroVPS.
The transfer went fairly smoothly and my site was up and running in no time at all, this whole VPS thing was totally new to me so the WHM and Plesk things etc. were like toys at xmas, albeit a bit confusing, naturally I had a few tickets in the beginning asking how this and that worked, their response time was phenomenal, I don't think I have ever had to wait longer than 15 minutes for a response. I have opened a total of 20 tickets so far.
Since then I have had the occasional ticket regarding problems and questions from my side and they have always been polite and have always solved my issues 100%. About 6 months ago there was a bit of an issue with regards to the transfer of my domain name that hadn't gone through from siteground to EuroVPS which caused my site to go down. A few tickets later and we managed to figure out what the problem was between us, believe it or not but EuroVPS actually phoned me at home to apologise for the confusion, in my opinion that is oustanding customer service and damn decent of them to go to all the trouble they went to and then still phone me.
Fantastic guys on their support team and in the Accounts department, I have nothing but praise for them, especially Sam M, Jeff D and Eugene K, thank you guys for top notch support.
I'm setting up a VPS server on Slicehost, I've followed the guide on howtoforge for debian and have everything installed including ISPConfig3. Everything seems to work fine at the mo but when I check the memory usage, i see that I'm using around 490/500mb of my 512mb setup. Its a Xen setup so I understand this is real memory available but I'm not sure if this is enough.
I will ultimately be running around a dozen sites, some static and some dynamic. There's one Mambo and one Joomla site there but they don't update. The rest are all php/mysql sites that I've built myself but again, they don't change that much. None of the sites currently see more than a couple hundred uniques a day, and some only a handful, so usage is not high. Most of the domains have e-mail accounts attached, but its only moderate usage with around a dozen addys per domain max.
So, do I need more memory or will 512 be enough? Is there anything I can do to reduce the load and give myself some more room?
I'm moving from a shared hosting environment and while I'm comfortable setting up the server, I would rather have a simple mail manager that would give users more control over their accounts, change passwords etc, which I'm hoping ISPConfig3 will be able to help with, but thats probably best discussed in another post.
