I have been running a dedicated server for years, first with Carolina Online, who then sold it to HostOnce.
Today at around 6PM my server, that was working fine and I was actively working on all day, suddenly disappears off the Internet.
I go to Host Once's ticket system, and they have a message up that they moved their servers from NC to NJ, that all the servers were upgraded to Windows 2003, and that they would be very busy with the migration, don't submit multiple tickets. (Host Once seems to mostly have reseller hosting accounts, not many dedicated servers.)
I start pinging IP addresses and everything in my server's IP block is gone (the furthest a tracert goes is 126.96.36.199 - everything under that is gone.)
This is bad.
I'm worried that they may have bought new boxes in NJ for their reseller accounts, transferred up the data, and abandoned the old boxes in NC ... is this something they might do?
Also worried that the block of IPs their old servers were on may have somehow been reassigned... can this happen?
In any case, waiting to hear back on my ticket but looking for advice. Does anyone know the datacenter Carolina Online / Host Once used in Lumberton, NC? Want to start tracking it down if my box may have been left behind.... Any other insight on what in the world they might be doing / what happenned here?
I remember using a few years ago a site where you could plugin a domain name and a report will run showing if the site was vieable or accessible from all different parts of the worls, I forgot the URL does anyone know abou something like this?
We have recently moved to a new datacenter and I was wondering if anyone on these forums could provide their experiences with "real-world" testing.
Upon move-in, we had a few issues. Obviously now the executives in the organization I work for are looking for justification for moving to the new colo.
software, or an online service that will stress test our current setup? Obviously I have MRTG, Awstats, and a few other of the most well known polling packages installed and working correctly, but what does everyone else use for stress testing?
I have a local network with modem, router, and several computers either Cat5 to router or via wireless. Router is Cisco Linksys E4200. The internal IP for this router would be 192.168.1.1.One of the computers has Ubuntu Server 14.04 (32-bit) and Apache 2 installed, and this is hardwired (Cat5) to the router. This computer also has a STATIC IP address that we will call 192.168.1.100. my Windows 7 Ultimate computer, I can open a browser and type "192.168.1.100" and the Apache 2 Ubuntu Default Page will pop up telling me that "It works!".
I have the Apache server working since I can access from within my LAN.My problem is to get it to show me the same "It Works!" when I try to access from the Internet.I got my 'external IP' address by simply going to whatismyip.com, and I can also see it from within my router settings.
The next thing I did was to setup Port Forwarding inside the router, to point say 50505 to 192.168.1.100. I've tried lots of port numbers.I cannot see my Apache 2 Default page by typing in my browser "188.8.131.52:50505", for example. This assumes 184.108.40.206 is my external IP and 50505 is the port I am forwarding.
I've tried disabling the IP4 firewall within the router, and even the "anonymous" filter request setting.I can find my web-server via browser in-house, but I cannot access from my external IP as if I were at a different location.
I did a quick search on this and could not see it as already being posted
It seems quite a clever but simple idea - remove a lot of the oxygen from the air to help reduce the risk of fire. What do those of you operating your own facilities make of this? Is anyone already doing this? [url]
Now, using that VE nodes on the 220.127.116.11/28 range are unpingable. How can I fix that?
Please take note that I remove all settings from ifcfg, and leave IPADDR and GATEWAY, the internet can ping the nodes. But within the 18.104.22.168/24 no-one can ping the nodes on the 22.214.171.124/28 range ( Which is my problem, that I came here to solve).
I am trying many OS's but none of them worked as it should:
- Windows 2000: install aborted - Windows XP: install aborted - CentOS 4.4: install OK but Kernel panic on start-up - CentOS 3.8: instal OK, only 3.8 Gb identified but the OS out of 8 Gb - CentOS 3.8 64 bits: couldn't install, CPUs support only 32 bits
Add to this, the machine boots on EL Kernel on CentOS 4.4 but not on the SMP Kernel!
how I could run this machine on Linux with 8 Gb RAM?
My server has 8GB RAM, however processes are limited to 3GB it seems, even if most of the memory is free (I have a mathematical program that mmaps lots of files and needs more than 3GB). I read somewhere that this is because the OS is 32-bit, but that it could be bypassed with "hugemem" kernel support.
I doubt that my host would install this for me, so how can I do this myself without breaking my server I've never done anything like alter a Linux kernel. My current OS is:
Linux 2.6.9-67.0.20.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Jun 18 12:40:47 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux With WHM 11.2.0, cPanel 11.11.0-S16999, REDHAT Enterprise 4 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0.
I recently used these forums to help narrow my search for a reliable, competent host. I choose to avoid the larger hosts that sells unlimited or large amounts of disk space and bandwidth. I went with a smaller host that sells a 1GB disk space and 10GB bandwidth package that is reasonably priced. Keep in mind that my site is new and will likely only be visited by friends and family. I feel this package is appropriate for my needs.
Should I be concerned about a host that will suspend my site if I reach my limit? As a customer I would rather be notified to upgrade my account instead of having my site suspended. This practice of automatically suspending sites may very well be the normal procedure for most hosts thus the reason for my post today. Please share your opinions on this topic.
How do you limit CPU/RAM per account on a shared web server without virtualization? Something like what Dreamhost is now offering, for instance for user "john", assign 256MB of RAM and 10% of CPU. Without Virtuozzo and friends.
