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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Most systems are configured to send mails of system events like the output of Cron tasks or failed sudo attempts to itself. These are sent mostly to the root user. If you are interested in these mails you should set up a catch all address for these mails.

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 ...

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.

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.

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).

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 ...

Not trying to talk down, just breaking it all down. sudo - run this command as a super user find - look for something... /var/www - ...in the /var/www directory... -type d - ...that is a directory... -exec chmod +s - ...and executes a chmod (change mode) +s (set the user bit) ... {} - ...for every directory you find... \; - and end the command. now the ...

CPU and memory accounting Utilize cgroups, cpuacct and memory controllers in particular. They'll give you fine-grained statistics on resource usage. You might need to adjust your setup though, ensuring your processes are bound to relevant control groups (as your sites are running under different system accounts, this should not be hard to implement). If ...

Is postfix configured to accept mail for the domain? postconf | grep ^mydestination ? I know it doesn't sound right because of the unknown user error, but it's worth checking.

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 ...

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 ...

You should check gitolite, it is probably the easiest way to set up a shared Git environment (I assume you have SSH access and full control over your VM). Gitolite uses SSH keys to authenticate users and allows to set up privilege separation.

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, ...

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.

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).

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

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

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 ...

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

@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 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.

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).

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 . ...
