You forgot the ending dot (.). All FCDNs have to end with one, so also your MX should be: mail.my.mydomain.com. // Edit: Forgot to mention. If you'd like to use it as a normal subdomain, you'd go good with creating it as a normal domain (like you added mydomain.com). That's something I'm not that happy with how ISPConfig solves it... So in general, your ...

Is ISPConfig really worth it? No. I mean do you guys got some feedback about use and security issue with it ? ISPConfig will most definitely provide an additional attack surface. But beyond that, by relying on the GUI, you're not learning the skills needed to troubleshoot issues or those necessary to even detect if something is awry on the ...

When you are using the same IP address for multiple services on the same computer, it's somewhat less than trivial to lock access via port 80 for only one of them. Here are some alternative, in increasing levels of complexity: Set up a virtual host with the name mail.example.com and have that one either return a redirect to www.example.com, or return 403 ...

You can just a add a CNAME. A CNAME points to another DNS name. So you can add: CNAME www.my.domain.com my.domain.com So now www.my.domain.com points to my.domain.com who points to x.x.x.x my.domain.com must exist and point to either an A record or another CNAME.

The best advice? Benchmark it! Set up your app or install some kind of CMS (e.g. Drupal and hit it with search queries after generating a lot of content and stuff with Devel) and start hitting it with Apache bench or siege. Start fiddling around with the settings. Personally I consider the following a good starting point: pm = dynamic pm.max_children = 8 ...

First look at this, your NS record has an extra . (dot) ns.1.ostimdenevar.com should be ns1.ostimdenevar.com your A record, should be "ns1" and not "ns" to match up with the NS record. in short: $TTL 604800 @ IN SOA ns1.ostimdenevar.com. root.ostimdenevar.com. ( 1 ; Serial 604800 ...

ISPConfig 3 Manual says: Fast-CGI: Advantages: Scripts will be executed with user privileges of the web site; More than one PHP version can be run as FastCGI; Might be better in speed compared to CGI and suPHP. Disadvantages: php.ini values cannot be changed via PHP scripts, vhost files, .htaccess files. But it is ...

Make sure you have installed the php-mysql package (yum install php-mysql) and you have enabled the extension in php.ini (extension=/usr/lib64/php/modules/mysql.so line is exists and not commented out).

Instead of using Sites-> Subdomain-> Add New Subdomain use Sites->Add New Website, enter sub.example.com for the domain and ISPconfig will create a subdomain with it's own webspace.

You don't like cPanel or Plesk - which implies you know enough about server management to intelligently critique them. You're not afraid of a shell environment. You won't have clients interface with the control panel. It doesn't sound like you're doing anything too crazy. Pretty vanilla hosting from what you say. All that adds up to: don't use a control ...

There actually many possibilities: You can have your blog on the other address and all sites you mention are pointing to this address. You can have your blog configured with (you can check detailed listen description): listen 192.168.8.1:80 default_server; This way you will end up in a server that will serve any unknown domain as your blog. There are ...

Be sure that in ispconfig, the option Auto-Subdomain is not set on *.. That could cause a similar case.

There is the jk_cp command. E.g. use jk_cp -j /var/www/clients/client2/web16 /usr/bin/hg to copy the needed file(s).

If you have ISPConfig installed, you have already a working nameserver. At your domain registry, enter the domain of your ISPConfig server as namesever and the external IP of your ISPConfig server as IP of your nameserver. Then go to the ISPConfig controlpanel and add the domains in the DNS-Manager.

Why do you consider that it must be a script on your server that is sending those emails ? you mention that you have sendmail on the machine running - maybe it is acting as open relay or someone has setup another process that forwards mail from it to your real sendmail? Check your host open relay tester first, maybe: http://www.abuse.net/relay.html So, ...

I think you need to remove the mail.gravex.co.uk from the MX entry - with it there, you tell the DNS how to handle mail for <user>@mail.gravex.co.uk, instead of <user>@gravex.co.uk.


1

@D_Bye is correct; you want to specify the MX record for gravex.co.uk not for mail.gravex.co.uk. A fully qualified domain name in a zone needs a dot after it. Also, MX records must point to domain names, not IP addresses, so: gravex.co.uk. IN MX 10 mail.gravex.co.uk. EDIT: Just noticed that you're missing IN in each line: setanta IN A ...

I highly recommend running tomcat on port 8081 and leave ispconfig on 8080.

PHP message: PHP Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required '/etc/cacti/debian.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /usr/share/cacti/site/include/config.php on line 27 It looks like Cacti is failing because it can't load /etc/cacti/debian.php. Presumably this is supposed to contain some configuration, and I would expect the cacti ...

From their list of supported software, it looks like you can run nginx as your HTTP server instead if you want to avoid Apache.

You need to install the package that includes the quota tools. Google suggests it is the quota package that you want.

Right - well two days of my life and a helluva lot of learning about things like xdebug, I can answer my own question and safely say you CANNOT now run Wordpress 3.3 - even a brand new fresh install with no plugins - on a VPS with less than 512Mb RAM. Which is a shame, because the 256Mb VPS had always been perfectly good before. Previously, it had been OK. ...

If the behavior stops when apache is stopped, then it's likely that your apache configuration allows for some sort of proxy-ing, which is being abused by the spammer to send mail through your machine. Start with this: http://wiki.apache.org/httpd/ProxyAbuse Also, check your httpd log files, and look for suspicious entries, specifically ones that do not ...

This isn't an error. This is because you have the apt-listchanges package installed, and this package is showing you the changelog of the php5 security upgrade that you are receiving. If you don't care to see what has been changed in a pacakge when it is getting upgraded, you can remove the apt-listchanges package. If you are asking how to dismiss this ...

First thing you should do is copy the original configuration file to a save location so you can customize it. ISPConfig has a built-in conf-custom folder. When ever a file is places in there, having the same name as a server/system/ISPConfig config file, it gets overwritten: cp /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/nginx_vhost.conf.master ...

Is it safe to be running cron jobs as root when they don't need to be? That depends; are your cron jobs 100% secure? If so, then you are 100% safe. If you aren't completely certain of their security, then no, this is not safe. This software is ultimately manipulating the standard crontab files. You can edit these with crontab -e and vi /etc/crontab . ...

ISP Config does execute cron jobs in a jailed environment, as you can see inside the crontab files created in /etc/cron.d/ispc*. SHELL='/usr/sbin/jk_chrootsh' So, execute command in that way should not be a problem if your users can not create unsafe executables (which indeed is not a cron problem).

ServerName is the canonical name for the virtualhost it's in; you should not put pixelfolio.co.uk in each VirtualHost. If you have only one name for a virtualhost, you do not need any ServerAlias. In your case, you should have: ServerName dbadmin.pixelfolio.co.uk in the config file for PHPMyAdmin, ServerName panel.pixelfolio.co.uk in the config file ...

It says you reached your MaxClients setting. If it's still at the default of 256, try doubling it to 512 (in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf). You'll also need to raise the ServerLimits to the same thing. Install some monitoring software (like Munin) and turn enable /server-status in apache so you can keep an eye on your connection numbers. I've seen the exact ...
