Uploading Flash Video Files To Host_A Doesnt Play Well But Plays FIne On Host_B
Jun 27, 2008
to upload some flash videos over to our web host.
All the videos have been uploaded to << link removed >> and in there you will seea flash_video directory, in there should be a html file where you can double click and watch the flash video.
Now go ahead and try it, click on the HTML file and click CONTINUE and try clicking on MODULE 1.. You will see a video play to the left but on the right are bunch of POWERPOINT slides that will appear as the guy continues to speak. THAT DOESNT SHOW..
Our website is hosted by xo.com
Dont know much about the plan since its my 2nd day at the job..
But here is the weird part,
i have uploaded the samething - same exact way to another web host and it plays fine, the PPTs show up fine..
What do you guys think it is?
Before someone asks about uploading methods, i tried filezilla, coreftp and cuteFTP using both ASCII and binary methods. Samething..
I have a flash swf that I use to upload files… however to get this to work on the server you have to do something like turn on shockwave uploading?… do you know what you need to do to upload using flash swf?
I've recently moved to a new provider and noticed that one of my sites that was using a flash file uploader without any problems now receives a 406 error whenever a file upload finishes.
After some digging online i found that the problem could be caused by mod_security and found a tutorial which explains that by using .htaccess u can disable mod_security for the particular domain. I've tried that but receiving internal server error who seems to indicate that mod_security is not actually running.
I looked at the domain's error log file and no entry is being written to the log when the error occurs.
Anyone have any ideas how to fix it? Or at least where to look for the causes.
I'm using the following flash uploader: [url]
Server is running CentOS and WHM .. the original server that didnt have a problem with the uploads was running Fedora and WHM.
I own a VPS server running CentOS with Cpanel WHM where no one can watch videos i post on any apple product.
The file plays fine on iphones when watching it on that website. BUT if i download that mp4 file and upload it to my own server, anyone with any iphone cant watch that video on my own server. I do now modify the file in any way. It plays fine on a PC or android phone / table but not Ipad and iphone...
Here is an example of hosting the above file on my server and linking it externally on my server. [URL] ....
The memory usage on my server is fine, I watched the CPUs for a long time and watched the server load also, the CPUs were easily riding along not often going over 20% (I have 2) yet the thing is, the server load is very strangely going mad... It's rarely under 6.0 (2 cpus) and sometimes goes into 20s, yet the server doesn't slow, nothing stops working but it simply goes red and shows it's bad news.
I've been told that the only other thing that might be causing this is the hard drives... I have 2x160GB 7200rpm hard drives - not sure if they are SATA etc..
If anyone has any ideas as to why the server load is so high - but everything else is fine -
I've just uploaded my website files onto the server, the website is working fine, but I'm not sure my files are 'arranged' right. I uploaded my images in a folder, but all the rest of the files are 'loose' along with the index file. If I go to either of my domain names, the website appears, which is ok for now, but I only really intended it to under one domain name, so there may be problems if I want another site up there. I think my files should be in a folder. Is this right? Should the index file be in the same folder, or should it be outside the folder with the links changed accordingly. I've been emailing my hosting service, and they 've been trying to help, but I feel a bit thick because I don't really understand what they're saying. Could someone tell me in very plain english how the files should be arranged?
i just bought php file management script, its running smoothly, the only problem was i cant upload big file ( > 1 Gigs ) using that script, then i ask the developer and he said it shouldnt be a problem since he sold that software before people and he never got a problem like that.
OS : Slamd64 apache 2.2.10 php 5.2.8
i tried to changed post_max_size = 1900M upload_max_filesize = 1500M
I want to install a script (a simple wordpress blog)on my website but now i'm just astonished at how many files I have to upload on my server's directory! Uploading those files one by one will take forever. Is there a way to upload multiple files all at once?
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?
It appears that some people like to take advantage of those files for online web applications such as Wordpress which have php files with permissions set to 777. They use those as a means of creating an upload file. The upload files that they create then have access to the whole server somehow... Is there anyway of preventing this from happening?
I'm facing a very strange FTP issue with one of my shared-hosting accounts, while all of my other servers are having no problems but only this one, when I try to upload a file (whatever file) larger than 500kb from my local PCs, in most cases, the file would stop uploading during the process and hang there until it times out.
There are 2 interesting things though: The file transmission typically hangs when approximately 248kb of the file have been transferred, pls see the attached screenshot for example.
If you look at the attached screenshot, you will notice that the uploading transmission hangs when 248kb of the file have been transferred. This is very strange and what I mean is that for example, I randomly pick up a file, and attempt to upload it onto my host for 10 times, now see, 5 times it will hang when 248kb of the total size have been transferred, 3 times it will hang at other points *near* 248kb (224kb or 280kb typically), 1 time it will hang at another random point, and 1 time it might be uploaded successfully (yes, there is still a tiny chance for the file to be uploaded successfully).
My default internet uploading speed is 80kb/s-100kb/s, lately I found that, when I limit the uploading speed on my FTP client (e.g. max. 30kb/s), everything WILL WORK without any problem! No hangs, no interrupt.. Whereas when I free up the uploading speed limitation and let it upload with my regular speed, the problem appears again.
It seems to me that the FTP hangs only when the uploading speed is higher than 60kb/s. However my host provider told me that they have customers uploading without any problem at over 400kb/s, and they said "there's no problem or limitations on the server at all".
Up until now, I have done following things to troubleshoot the issue but with no luck:
Contacted my host. Disabled/Enabled the PASV mode on my FTP client. Tried different FTP clients on different computers (FlashFXP and Filezilla). Rebooted my router and reseted everything with the factory default settings. Contacted my ISP for the issue, they "did something" but nothing were helpful. Rebooted all my PCs. Disabled both firewalls on my PC and on the router.
Furthermore, I have asked another friend of mine in another city with another ISP to test the FTP uploading, but unfortunately he got the exact same problem. And I've done some search on the internet for hours but no one seemed to have the same problem..
Domain has PHP Settings in Plesk set to 2G and I get this error when uploading a 48MB file using Wordpress. I assume I need ot modify this manually in conf file somewhere to allow uploading large files?
Requested content-length of 48443338 is larger than the configured limit of 10240000..
mod_fcgid: error reading data, FastCGI server closed connection...
i have installed ffmpeg + mplayer +flv and all other codecs in my dedicated box and even converted a sample video to flv. but how to i play the video in the clients browser? should i call mplayer from php.
just cant seem to understand this. i am planning to start a video website
I am developing a web application for a private investigative firm. They do surveillance work and therefore have surveillance videos. I would like the capabilities of uploading the videos online and allowing the client to login and view their surveillance video online.
Currently, we get the video from the PI, put it on a DVD and then mail it to the client.
This takes too long. We want the client to be able to view the video online.
Some of these videos can be up to 2 hours long.
First, is this even possible?
Second, - how much bandwidth would a website like this take? - Is there a host that can hold hundreds of GB of video?
I want to convert it to flash to save file size and also so I can stream it.
I am being hacked & I don't know how they are getting files on my server. They are doing it on two of my domains, I suspended one and then they got it on the other. My FTP access log does not show anything suspicious..
what I'd like to do is get a server set up that i could remote into and play games such as second life.And Leave it running etc. I would also like to be able to install other software on the server and run them just as i do with my home pc. Is that possible ? and if so what kind of setup do you suggest? Linux,windows.
First let me state that i don't know if this is possible. but what I'd like to do is get a server set up that i could remote into and play games such as second life.And Leave it running etc. I would also like to be able to install other software on the server and run them just as i do with my home pc. Is that possible ? and if so what kind of setup do you suggest? Linux,windows. How would i set that up ? What would i need from the host.
Is it possible to make these two work together? I can't seem to find any way to let Apache read /home/<username>/public_html without disabling selinux entirely.
I know you can do "chcon -t httpd_sys_content_t -R $HOME/public_html", but it seems like it would be a pain when adding users, especially if someone decides to delete their public_html and make a new directory.
Is it possible to create an exception to let httpd do whatever it wants?
As posted in a previous thread I noted how I have been hosting with GeekStorage. After a little bit of investigation I found that a total of 593 (possibly more) website where being hosted on the same server as mine. I'm not sure if this is overselling but because I'm new to all this but I'm pretty sure it is.
Now, I'm looking on switching from GeekStorage to someone who doesn't oversell. I would be fine with 10-20GB of storage and >150GB bandwidth. Budget is 5-10$ a month.
so for over 3 weeks now pc-core.net had some problems with their servers and my accounts were just lost and no one answers my support tickets they just erase them, they disabled my account to support so i can only submit support tickets and click the link on the email.
they told me to email cshelpdesk.com to get my account moved to a new server and cshelpdesk is just telling me im SOL. they dont have access to the server i was at and basically to F off.
is there anything i can do? im basically just being ignored and they dont even have a number to them.
my sys admin is currently in vacation and ovh staff cant help me much so i really appreciate if someone could help me tackle down this issue. I cant create ftp account at all heres what ovh said
Thank you to trust us, there is not my point of view or that of my colleague problem of the kernel compilation on your server or a file corrupted, and your Apache web server is functional, Status of the launch; after this command, via ssh: / etc / init.d / httpd start Starting httpd: [OK]
We see that the port is open 80: netstat-tanpu | grep 80 tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:7080 0.0.0.0: * LISTEN 3071/lshttpd tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:80 0.0.0.0: * LISTEN 14349/httpd
From the outside, at this precise moment, we are able to establish a connection on port 80:
Telnet ks357687.kimsufi.com 80 Trying 91.121.148.X ... Connected to ks357687.kimsufi.com. Escape character is'^]'. Get <!

If I stop the Apache server:

More than 80 active port or connection possible from the outside:
In this case the connection of the exterior evidemment is not possible:
