Quick Parts

Jul 21, 2007

I am building a server using two Clovertown E5320 processors for a project. I need some suggestions for a motherboard and memory. I have looked at some boards on Newegg, but I'm still unsure. I do not have a large budget for the motherboard, so the cheaper, the better.

If anyone has other processors they would go with alternatively I'm open to suggestions there as well. It was either going to be a single Clovertown (later to be two) or two AMD Opteron 2212's....

Dells And Parts

May 20, 2007

i plan to buy some used 1750 and 1850 Dell servers and 2 new 1950. I need spare parts: I know i have to get Power Supply, Motherboard, headsink, and others (cdrom, floppy) from DEll, but what about hard drives, rams, cpu's? Can I get these things from outside companies such as buying the same technical specs SCSI harddrive from Seagate (which is generally cheaper) to replace failed harddrives in these Dell's? what about Rams (given same tech specs)? Will they fit!

i know building servers with SuperMicro case and server mobo, we can get generic parts. maybe we can go this route, but we need to know from those who have worked with Dells.

Parts Storage And Inventory

Aug 4, 2009

Wondering what kind of storage hardware server builders are using to keep organized? I am currently storing HDD, RAM, PSU, CPUs, and other various parts on shelves and it gets disorganized and messy very quick.

I found this product for HDD and may order some to help organize HDDs:

Anyone know of similar products or good shevling / cabinets that are computer parts friendly?

Quick APF

Jan 9, 2007

I`ve read this about allowing certain IPs access to the server


More advanced: /etc/apf/allow_hosts.rules
10. As a safety precaution, you might want to add your ip to the '/etc/apf/allow_hosts.rules' file.

Open the file in your favorite editor.
11. Add the ip of your computer to the end of the file. This will cause all traffic to and from that ip not to be filtered. You can also add the ip's of other servers.

If you want to specify what kind of traffic to allow from those ips that is not covered with the current firewall rules (ie. you blocked all traffic to SSH and only want a few ips to be able to access the SSH port), then this is the format you would use:

Protocol : direction/flow : source/destination port : s/d ip
[tcp/udp] : [in/out] : [s=/d=]PORT : [s=/d=]IP

Ex (let the ip access to port 22):

tcp:in:d=22: s=

What I`d like to know is if its possible to put an IP range in there instead of just one ip address

such as you specify a range in the conf.apf file upon setup


tcp:in:d=99_123: s=

where 99_123 is the port range

Parts To Fit Tyan Mboard And Supermicro Case

Jul 2, 2007

I got a good deal on the Supermicro SC822T-R550LPB case, and then bought a Tyan Motherboard(S3970).

Unfortunately, the IO shield that comes w/the board does not fit the case, and the one from the case does not fit the mboard. A set of FAN cables do not reach the mboard either. Does anyone know of any place that sells these parts?

Apache :: Reverse Proxy - Some Parts Of App Not Working

Oct 12, 2012

I am trying to set up a reverse proxy to the application Surveillance Station on my Synology NAS. Altough the reverse proxy works ok for other apps like Webadmin, Download Station and such, parts of the Surveillance Station app do not work, particulary the Live View & Time Line.

From the logs, I suspect an authorisation problem (because of the 401), but I'm not sure. I have tried ProxyPreserveHost on, ProxyVia full, and some rewrite rules, but I'm not sure what I'm doing Direct access to the port of the app works (i.e. 83.xxx.x.xxx:9900), so i know it has something to do with the reverse proxy.

Computer Parts Distribuitors In Orange, CA? (to Build 1U Servers)

Jun 25, 2008

can you tell me of a few distribuitors/wholesale to get parts from for building a few 1U servers. I would like to find Supermicro cases/motherboards but if they are general computer parts I guess they work.

I know INGRAM Micro has a program to get discount or something, but haven't researched much about it.

Users Too Quick To Judge

Oct 5, 2009

I find it worrying when new or relatively new users post "[XYZ]VPS PROVIDER IS A SCAM" or "[XYZ]VPS ROBBED ME" in a topic because they didn't get the instant ticket response or fast enough setup time on their $10 VPS..

I'm planning on setting up a budget UK based VPS service myself some time soon, and users would do well to remember that a lot of hard work goes in to the management and set up of such providers. This kind of negative publicity can not be taken back once posted. A quick google search will throw this kind of a post up and cause irrepairable and often, completely unnecessary harm to a business..

Quick Review Of Infinitie VPS

Jun 6, 2008

I currently switched from XXX to infinitie.net vps service. I was tired of foreign help dealing with people with poor english. Tech support has been very good, and good response times. Servers themselves have good performance. Not the fastest, but the mysql performance has been very good. It's also nice to have a VPS but setup and stuff can be somewhat intimidating. They were very helpful, but I did opt to pay them a small fee to do it for me. The hourly rates aren't a bargain, but when you factor in the time you would need to do it right, if you are just so-so at it, then it was probably worth it.

So far it's only a week, but it's been a happy week. No downtime at all so far. I'll report to you in a month and tell you how things are going.

Quick Shout Out To IMountain.com

Sep 8, 2008

During the past 24 hours, two things have happened with iMountain.com that I wanted to let you all know about.

1. I uncovered a bug in the Webshell application that they use (bundled with Hsphere) which was preventing me from gzipping up my and my buddy's owsweather.com site for weekly backups. Reported it in an email, and in 2 minutes I had a reply back saying that they would notify Hsphere of the issue since it's a bug in the software. Good job there.

2. The big one is that the same owsweather.com site is getting clobbered by HUGE amounts of traffic - more than we ever have in our 8 year history. We have received over 2500 unique IP visits since midnight (it is now 5 minutes until 6:00 am PDT in California).

I must give major props to iMountain for building rock solid servers which don't bog down under high traffic load, and also for allowing us to "use" their servers for what they are INTENDED to be used for! If it wasn't for them and allowing our site to have bursts of traffic like this *see Dreamhost, Bluehost, and other similar reviews*, we would be in a very tight spot indeed. So thanks Brandon and crew. You have done us well.

Quick Review: IMountain

Aug 3, 2007

I recently changed providers after a short search, including input from this thread [url].

I opted to go with a semi-dedicated package from Iron Mountain ( www.imountain.com ). I was mostly impressed with their clustered solution and dedicated mySQL servers to host our increasingly busy Vbulletin forums. They also answered email inquires very quickly; another good sign, given the few comments I could find about them at WHT.

While I was intrigued about the solar-powered claim, I knew that many in our community would appreciate that aspect as well.

Ultimately, I wasn't quite convinced our forum issues were mainly related to CPU/memory resource use. So, I narrowed my search to providers that also claimed to have a good setup for SQL. These included Cartika Hosting and MediaLayer, among others (Thank you to all who responded with input and offers!). At that point, it came down to lowest price and iMountain's offer was also in the upper end of the price range supported by recent member donations. In case I was wrong about the CPU resources, at least this would at least allow some time to save for the dedicated solution that many recommended.

As it turns out, the CPU/memory resources were not the issue at all. It seems that our forum issues at the previous provider were primarily due to their SQL implementation.

In fact, they were going to generously allow us to continue on our $50/year plan for a while given that we weren't yet hogging resources. Nonetheless, the slowdowns and SQL errors continued until the last day. In any case, I can still recommend AddAction.net for anyone looking for a competitively priced basic hosting package if you don't have major SQL requirements. It was inexpensive, but I believe I got a lot more than I paid for.

Since the switch, the forums have been running great. No slowdowns, no freezes, no infinite waits to read/make a post, no flood of SQL error email messages. Most importantly, no user complaints so far. In addition, I've been told that we aren't even putting a scratch in our resource allocations in any area and there should be plenty of room for growth that has been doubling about every 6 months for the last few years.

The transfer was quick and the switchover had minimal downtime given that the new plan included a dedicated IP address for me to direct users of the forums during the DNS propagation. There were a couple minor issues during the switch, but their tech support team responded very quickly. They also helped setup a memcache for the forums and suggested some other tweaks to further improve performance.

Overall, I am very satisfied so far. I'll report again in a couple months when I have a better feel for downtime and more time for users to comment.

Quick Bigvps.com Review

Aug 23, 2007

We've recently decided to move a sizable web project to a VPS located at bigvps.com (colo4jax). Although I had some initial concerns about them being single homed to Cogent, I have actually been pleasantly surprised at the speeds of the network. I have seen some very good speeds to some of my key servers located on the West Coast and even better on the East Coast (expected). For grins, we even tested a proprietary voip software between the datacenter (It's in Jacksonville) to one of our offices in San Francisco. It was perfect!

The hardware seems solid and support has been quick to respond to any inquiries.

Although we havent moved over the web project yet, the work we have done on the server has been no problem at all. We expect that when we move over the web project, the VPS will continue to hum along.

As with all providers, it's been a short life with them thus far - I'll post back in a few months and let you know how things progress.

Quick Opinions On LiquidWeb Vs. LunarPages?

Aug 7, 2008

I'm a non-techie trying to choose a dedicated hoster. From searching through reviews and prices, I've come down to Lunar Pages or Liquid Web. Would you please give me your opinions of these two, and if there are others that you feel strongly about instead, mention those as well? I would really appreciate it -- I'm very anxious about choosing a reliable company with good service, b/c I'll pretty much be at their mercy! (Life is hard for the non-technical

My programmer gave me these requirements: managed hosting, windows server 2003 or 2008, web edition, 2 GB ram, ms sql server 2005 or above, quad core processor from 1.8 - 2.4 ghz, firewall, automatic backup -- 10 GB, remote desktop connection.

WingSix.com :: 6 Month Quick Review

Feb 26, 2009

I've been a long time reader but I figured I would finally sign up for an account and post a review of my current VPS host, WingSix.com.

Ratings range: 0-10
0 being the worse and 10 being the best

Uptime: 7/10
The uptime has been pretty good. Over the course of six months I had about 1 hour of downtime due to a hardware failure but over the last month I have had nearly 20 hours of downtime due to unexplained outages and migration issues.

Support: 4/10
The support has been horrendous. My average response to tickets is measured in days, if they respond at all, and I still have tickets opened from when I initially ordered the account relating to creeping file corruption which support just dances around. I have also had my IPs changed and server moved twice in the last month with little to no advance notice. Usually nothing actually gets done until I call them and even then it's a crapshoot.

Performance: 9/10
The performance on the server is excellent. The server is primarily a DNS and Mail host for my domains and, so far, I have had no problems with the speed or responsiveness of the service. Take this rating with a grain of salt, however, because I have never done much that would put an incredible load on the server.

Price: 8/10
Their pricing is fairly competitive with other hosts I have looked at. I am currently on their VPS Hawk plan ($25/mo) which offers:
2 dedicated IPs
15 GB storage
400k inodes
100 GB bandwidth
256 MB RAM / 1GB burstable


While the uptime, price and performance are good I am hesitant on recommending them to anyone based on my experience thus far with their support
My domain has been reported to the mods.

Gigenet - Quick Initial Review

Dec 1, 2008

I another thread recently I done a 5 year review for another provider hover circumstance changed and I took on a couple of Gigenet servers ( relatively high end)

Sales were extremely efficient working with me to achieve what I needed at a price I was comfortable with, replies were fast and concise so I ended up with 2 new machines and backup service.

Normally I don't need a lot of support and for the first few weeks nothing bar rDNS set ups - However I ran into some serious post migration issues over the past few days that had me stumped, support has been some of the best I have ever received both in speed and efficiency -

Anyway I sincerely hope I will be coming back to this thread in 5 years time to update it.

Quick Disk Drive- On Dual Server Setup

Feb 8, 2008

I'm about to purchase a 2nd server to be used as a database/app server alongside my current server (of which will be the web server).

I wish to use 2 x 146GB 10K SCSI hard disks (in RAID 1) on the database server, but will be keeping 2 x 320GB SATAII 16M in RAID 1 on the web server. Will the SATA hard disks affect the performance / effectiveness of the SCSI disks or will I benefit from SCSI even though they're only in the database server?

Also, I'm going for 10K hard disks over 15K because they $20 per month cheaper and it's already expensive ($150 p/m for the two 10K or $170 p/m for 2 x 15k). Taking into account the already hefty price, is it worth the extra for 15K?

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Application Vault - Replace Quick Install Button

Jul 30, 2014

We've been experiencing a lot of trouble with novice customers that want to install an Application Vault package that has sub-optimal default settings, e.g.

customer wants to install wordpress, clicks on Application Vault -> wordpress -> "INSTALL"

This will install, without any questions for settings, wordpress into domain.com/wordpress - which is not what people want. I know that there is a button with teh drop down menu that shows "custom", however, people don't see/know about it and click "install".

Is there a way to remove / replace the "quick install" button and have the "install custom" as default.
