Uploading Scripts And Hosting Policies

Feb 25, 2008

I'm working on a php app that will be publicly released at a later point, that includes uploading functionality, but on my testing account, I get acces to /temp denied for permission reasons.

How normal is it for this type of obstruction to occur with webspaceproviders in general? If this is a fairly common policy, I need a solution of somekind. Perhaps uploadig the file temporarily to a folder on the users own webspace, instead of the location on the hosting server, being used by PHP by default (/tmp)

IP Security Policies

Jul 16, 2009

I want to setup a Windows 2003 security policy to filter traffic.

I want to let most of the world through to port 80 so maybe just ban a few nuicance IP's.

But then I have a POP / IMAP server, VPN, SMTP, etc that I want to block all but UK IP addresses.

I know I can do this through the MMC snap in but this is 1000's of IP's.

Is there a way I can import a list/range of IP's that I want to block from a country IP database?

Using IPSec Policies To Help Prevent DoS Attack

Apr 22, 2008

Is it possible to use IP Security policies in Windows Server 2003 to help prevent types of DoS attacks? Today my server was attacked by a single attacker who merely connected and disconnected on open ports at an incredibly fast rate. This was enough to eat the cycles of the server processes effectively creating a DoS attack. I was hoping IPSec could help prevent this, but I'm open to use any other software as well.

Email Bounces + Spamcop Policies

Mar 30, 2008

So I get this email today from SpamCop complaining about my server sending unsolicited bounce messages.

Well yea... thanks to spammers domain spoofing and sending spam to my server, my server finds that there's no address - so it replies to the spoofed address.

My question is.... what do I do about it? The spamcop site has this to say... Though if I setup the server to do something odd like not sending a bounce because it's "filed internally", how will legit people get the proper bounce response??

Problem: Misdirected bounces

Description: When a mail server accepts a message and later decides that it can't deliver the message, it is required to send back a bounce email to the sender of the original message. These bounce emails are often misdirected.

Solution: Upgrade and/or configure your mail server software so that this situation is never encountered. Configure your software to either reject messages during delivery or accept them permanently. Do not let your software make choices about delivery after it has accepted a message. If you must accept delivery before you know the status of a message, then file it internally - do not send, forward or bounce it outside your organization. The errant message can be placed in a special folder or routed to your postmaster.

Webhosting Providers And Permissions Policies

Jan 26, 2008

I don't have too much experience with different providers, so I need to ask this:

I'm creating a set-up/installation script for an application I will be releasing to the public at some point where I would like to autogenerate it's set-up (tables, users etc.) to the largest extent possible. I just tried out my script on a testing account and the automated creation of a limited MySQL user with GRANT failed, due to lack of permissions for doing that with this particular provider. My question is this:

What can I safely - on average - automate through a set-up script for a webapplication running in a shared envrionment and what will usually be disallowed by the average provider? Plesk allows me to create a new user through it's web interface, but it doesn't (as far as I can see anyway) allow the individual setting of permisssions for that user, making it very hard to follow the security policy of "least priviledge"...

Stuff that I'm thinking of is: Table creation, folder, file- and user creation.

Custom SELinux Policies For Their Cpanel Server

Has anyone wrote custom SELinux policies for their cpanel server?

Apr 21, 2009

SameerHosting has been the biggest mistake I have ever made as far as purchasing a service online is concerned. This fake company and more importantly their Owner/Employee/[Insert Job Title Here] Jordan has been the most nasty, hard to work with, and distasteful person I have ever dealt with in my life. I recommend anyone to stay as far away from this company and child as possible. Below are parts of an initial post of mine at DP Forums. There are so many posts, threads, reviews and this kid and his fake company out there that you shouldn't have any trouble finding out everything that has occurred in the past 1-2 months. Thanks for your time:

I had purchased a dedicated server with this guy not realizing he was a 14 year old kid with a bad temper and poor spelling. I paid for the server and he managed to get into an argument with my tech about something (its in that thread). He then got mad at me and took out his anger on me even though I had no idea anything had happened until after the fact. He involved me in something I had no part in.

I have discussed this guy so many times that I am tired of talking about it but will give you a summary of what recently happened. Jordan pmed me through this forum through one of his other (now banned) accounts. This kid knows he will be banned from most forums and makes a handful of accounts to fall back on. He offered to give me a refund if I tell my tech to stop posting about him. Of course I did what he had asked me to do.

I have been honest and given him far to many chances to make right. Well, he ended up telling me I am no longer getting a refund from him because my tech keeps messing with his servers (which I doubt is actually happening). I am being punished again for something that does not have anything to do with my actions. He has now block me from yahoo messenger,msn messenger, his live chat.

Since I posted this on DP I have been in contact with his legal guardians and they have been no help.
Jordan has messaged my Personal Billing details to many of his customers and others along with edited defamatory pictures of someone that is supposed to be myself. That is totally illegal and childish. He did this because I spoke against his scam company and illegal wrongdoings.

If anyone has had bad dealings with this company please post everything that has happened in this thread and also PM me and I can give you the e-mail of the people who take care of him and you can tell them what he has done. He needs to be stopped.

Again, it is very important to post in this thread with information about what he has done to you, the more info the better as these people will possibly listen to me and others.

Uploading Files

Jan 28, 2009

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?

FTP Uploading Corrupt

May 30, 2008

The Details:

XP Home, Verizon DSL, AVG, ZoneAlarm, CoffeeCup FTP, FileZilla FTP

So this all started about 5 days ago and I cannot think of anything that I did to associate this issue with. I'm very computer savvy and no one else uses this computer except for me (to help move things along faster). Essentially what happens when I start CoffeeCup FTP or FileZilla FTP (testing to make sure it wasn't just a problem with CoffeeCup FTP) and try to upload image files it fails, not the upload itself.. but somehow the image files are corrupt (no they're not CMYK, they're RGB). So it shows the file on my server, correct size, no error messages. However, when I go to the image URL it just shows the image URL where the image should be. I then restart CoffeeCup FTP and everything uploads properly. I've checked the lines on DSLReports.com, I've checked ZoneAlarm to make sure that I didn't somehow accidentally click no to something (which is unlikely). I keep my computer very clean and very organized and very up to date so it would be more helpful to me if someone could share some ideas of something that could happen that's not of my control. Could this possibly have anything to do with SP3 (the only thing I can recall being a change on my computer).

Uploading To Htdocs -> Err...

Jun 6, 2007

I've been using a Fedora Core 6 box to develop my site with PHP and MySQL. The web directory is /var/www/html.

I just recently bought my first hosting plan, and it says to upload my site to the Htdocs folder.

Is this a BSD server? I know nothing about BSD, and I'm worried, because I don't know if my site is going to need to be re-written. You see, some of my files, like the db connection script, are in /var/www/myfoldername ... Is there an equivalent on my new rented server, where I can put these files?

How about my databases? When I run the installer I wrote to create them, it just creates them, and FC6 has been doing what it will with them to get them working. Am I going to have issues connecting, because they're stored in a different dir?

Uploading SQL Databases By FTP

Feb 25, 2008

we have been trying to import sql databases through cpanel.

The old server the client was on did not have any control panel. While the new server the client is migrating to, has cpanel. We try importing sql databases through cpanel, but because the sql databases are so large in size, they corrupt while importing them.

The client's old server he would be able to access all his sql databases through FTP.

While with this new cpanel server, we can't upload sql databases by FTP. We are wanting to use FTP because when using cpanel, the sql databases corrupt.

So is there anyway to upload sql databases with FTP directly into mysql when using cpanel server?

Uploading To Multiple Servers

Jun 4, 2009

A website I am involved with may soon hit a problem due image uploading being stored on only one server. We are unable to find a realistic solution which would allow us to upload images from 1 central location.

The website is programmed in PHP and is on a standalone web-server - currently the images are uploaded to the same directory as the website however we are looking to move the images to another server for scalability.

Is it possible at all to upload using a directory link of some kind, eg, the directory would be /serverip/path/to/images which you would upload to? Or any other realistic approaches that you know off.

Error 406 When Uploading From Flash

Mar 27, 2008

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:

Server is running CentOS and WHM .. the original server that didnt have a problem with the uploads was running Fedora and WHM.

MySQL Phpmyadmin Uploading

Oct 31, 2007

I am using Windows XP (my laptop) to run a server for localized testing for a site that I run. I am using the WAMP5 on Windows XP.

I got everything setup (phpbb board) vanilla install. Everything went fine, no problems. The script uploaded all the tables on its own.

I pulled the database from the real server to drop into the test site.

Every time I try to upload a sql file that's 11.9Mb in size, I get a "Error: You probably tried to upload too large file. Please refer to documentation for ways to workaround this limit." so I checked the configuration and set it to a 1024Mb file size and like 2048 memory size.

I even tried a 30Kb sized file and I still get the same error. What do I need to do to get this to work?

Also when I check all tables and use the drop down menu to select drop, it just bring my back to the start phpmyadmin page and nothing happens. I can drop the table individually, but that'll take too long, there are over 40 of them.

What else do I need to look for/configure so this will work?

Uploading Files Through CMS After Moving To New Host

Jul 18, 2009

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?

Prevent PHP Files Used For File Uploading

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?

FTP Timing Out When Uploading Small Files

Jul 20, 2009

There is a behavour with my server FTP when uploading a whole directory with many files in many sub-directories

Very often, the server disconnect itself when actively uploading files and the log simply says 'timeout'

It is as if the file got 'stuck' half way, and the FTP consider them as idle, therefore it disconnect you with a 'timeout' before reconnecting you.

But i have no problem uploading a single 200mb file to the server via FTP. I suppose no problem with 'keep alive'

So what is this behavior and how to solve it?
