You would need the following DNS entries in your zone file would do the job. The wild card entry should be the last. example.com. A IP_ADDRESS_OF_STATIC_SERVER www A IP_ADDRESS_OF_STATIC_SERVER * A IP_OF_APP_SERVER

Probably it means the changes weren't propagating from the master server to the slave servers. In many high-intensity DNS environments, changes are made on a restricted server not actually serving end-users, then replicated out to the actual client-facing DNS servers. Sometimes these changes aren't replicated successfully...

My first suggestion would be to ensure you are fixing the right problem. Track your memory usage over a reasonable time frame and see how high it goes (and if you can correlate this to something such as increased traffic). If you already have some monitoring in place (e.g. Munin) you should be able to see memory trends Otherwise, use sar (e.g. if you ...

No you don't need to have recursion on for authoritative DNS servers. Depending on who you ask it's even considered good practice that (if possible) your authoritative server not be recursive as it's a line of defence against some DoS attacks. (Cisco's document is here for example) A sample from my domain is below (Server is running Bind 9 and is ...

"DNS Getting Stuck" means that the support person you talked to is clueless. In all likelihood, the record was probably never entered into their DNS servers or the DNS process was hung and needed rebooting. Remember that next to ISPs, web hosts tend to have the least competent front-line staff and have seared consciences when it comes to lying. If you had a ...

It looks like they just added their own archives in addition to "standard" lenny. You could probably just remove the "newdream" servers from the file along with (potentially) the backports and debian-multimedia servers, add a normal lenny mirror, apt-get update and then install the packages that you want. If the ndn packages were designed right, they ...

I just wanted to say explicitly what I did to make my system more like vanilla/upstream Debian. sudo apt-get install debfoster Change repositories. Update /etc/apt/sources.list with the latest Debian goodness. sudo apt-get update remove the crappy Dreamhost meta packages en massé: dpkg --get-selections 'ndn*' | awk '{if ($2 == "install") { print $1 } }' | ...

First, SPF is just a DNS record for your domain, that specifics which servers can send e-mail for your domain. If a receiving e-mail server also supports SPF it will check this record and follow the actions you set in your record. The most common effect is that less people can send spam where the spam claims to be from you. Sometimes mail servers are ...

I found you have to put some more lines in the phprc file for it to work in FastCGI mode extension=phar.so detect_unicode = Off phar.readonly = Off phar.require_hash = Off suhosin.executor.include.whitelist = phar

The PHP email function returns true if the mail subsystem of your server (sendmail for example) accepts your message for delivery. However, the mail may not actually be sent by sendmail if it isn't configured to do so (or it may be trying to send mail and failing). Look on your server in the /var/log/maillog or whatever log file your mail server is sending ...

Oh, why don't I read documentation until the end. Dreamhost wiki has a guide for setting up RVM. The last part tells about setting up a reverse proxy, which solves my problem.

You need a own IP for each SSL-domain. You can of course have one SSL-site plus multiple non-ssl sites on a single IP. There is the option of using Server Name Indication, but since it's only implemented in a minority of browsers it is not a real choice.

You might need to brush up on your DNS knowledge a bit but regardless there are two ways to point your domain name to a server: You manage the DNS Their server manages the DNS If you're DNS registrar (you) will provide a name server to answer queries about your domain then you need to setup NS records. NS records for a domain tell the client who to ask ...

In your Linode manager, click on the Linode you wish to edit the rDNS for, Click on Remote Access tab (Under the "Linodes Node Balancers" menu, to the right of "Dashboard". A list of your Public IPs will display, and select "Reverse DNS". On this page, you will see a text box asking for hostname, here you would place "foo.example.com" Hit "Look up" and ...

Who knows except Dreamhost? Who knows except Dreamhost? Who knows except you? You have the contract and the given limits. If 280 accesses are above the limit then yes. Not after it got killed. While running you can see several information of a PID under /proc/$PID. For example /proc/$PID/cmdline.

Figured it out. If you add a directory at ~/.php/5.3/ and then put a file called phprc in it with the following line in it extension=phar.so then the phar extension gets loaded.

You need to install your SSL certificate at Heroku. The very abbreviated process is: heroku addons:add ssl heroku certs:add server.crt server.key

To give Google permission to send email on your behalf add the following to your spf txt record. include:_spf.google.com Also with issue C, don't use the ISPs smtp servers. Set up each client to relay through Google's mail servers the details on how to do that can be found here.

You can use pear upgrade to upgrade PEAR itself: pear upgrade PEAR or: pear upgrade-all

Dreamhost uses powerdns (ugh), just as bad .. but Windows recursive resolvers do indeed suck. The question is , why are the Windows dns boxes at your client sites getting SERVFAIL? They shouldnt be. And, the above poster is correct - if you're authoritative to a domain, you can have it cname, A, fail, you name it, to any domain/ip (you don't have to know ...

Authoritative servers should NOT be configured to offer recursive service. Not even to work around a potential Microsoft bug. I can't quote chapter and verse at the moment (if I find it I'll update). However this is very much the accepted "best common practise" for operation of DNS servers. If some resolver in your lookup chain is returning SERVFAIL then ...

Not being familiar with Dreamhost's setup I would assume if it's a Google apps account you will just need to add the proper MX records at your new host. You can use some simple tools like dig to find out your current MX records and see how "attached" they are to Dreamhost. If this apps account came with your hosting account as a Dreamhost feature you would ...

Catch all If mail is sent to a non-existing user on a domain it may be sent to the MTA's admin account. This used to happen on my php contact form when spammers attempted to email an account on my domain that did not exist. The message would be passed to the admin MTA account instead of routed to the non-existent user.

Got in touch with Dreamhost and they say it's a problem with their setup: Ah. Yea. The reason why the version does not match is due to back porting done in the Debian version we're using. I'm not sure if there's a way around that but can create a incident report with our system admin if you'd like. But ultimately, it would be best to install a ...

It sounds like you might have a caching issue. Did you have a previous value for zach.bqqkshelf.com? (I.E., did it used to point somewhere else?) It can sometimes take a while (at least a day) for DNS changes to propagate, due to the distributed and highly cached nature of DNS.

Sounds like a generic error that a support rep might give for a typo. If forced to guess I'd suggest someone updated the zone file but forgot to update the serial and the new details were not loaded by the server.

From memory Dreamhost won't allow you to turn off mod_security. Are you sure that it is a mod_security problem? Dreamhost need you to run scripts with very specific chmod values, and that's always been the problem I've had. It might help to show any error messages you're getting, and related entries in your error log. Also ask Dreamhost if you're sure ...

I'm not sure about rdiff-backup, but I have successfully run rsnapshot against a shared webhosting account (like Dreamhost) in the past. Rsnapshot is quite similar in operation to rdiff-backup and its only requirement is that rsync exists on the remote system. Have you tried running rdiff-backup against the DH account? There would be no harm in trying. If ...
