Check out VirtualBox. It even has seamless mode where you can run your program in a 'native' window on the desktop.

"Shared Network" in Parallels lingo means that your iMac is doing NAT on behalf of the VM. You probably want "Bridged Mode", with which your VM will get an IP address from your router via DHCP.

You can restore whatever you have backups of - nothing more. Plesk is not a magic wand - it can't make data come back from "deleted". Per your comments all you have are old backups (from more than 6 months ago), therefore what you can restore is the old data (from more than 6 months ago). When you have completed that restore (and rebuilt/replayed your ...

You could try VirtualBox. It supports MacOS and has good reviews.

The only thing I know of that allows remote-boot over Ethernet is a server with a hardware iSCSI card, accessing an iSCSI Target on another system as LUN 0. I haven't seen this done myself, but have heard of it done. In the past you could set up something via PXE-boot and NFS, but I don't know if that kind of system is still viable these days. If Fibre ...

virtualbox works on OS X (intel). It also supports "seamless" windows, i.e. opening an windows app on your Mac desktop.

You have a Virtuozzo (or OpenVZ) VPS -- for which the normal rules of memory allocation don't apply. Assuming your hosting provider isn't lying to you, you "have" 1GB of RAM, insofar as the OpenVZ "hypervisor" will allow you to allocate 1GB of memory, or (more likely, based on your description of events) 1GB of virtual memory. Just because you don't see ...

Set the network mode to "bridged" so the VM gets an address on the same network as the host.

What IP address you use depends on what networking mode you chose for Parallels, but running ifconfig -a in a Mac Terminal window should give you some options. I would normally choose the addresses associated with the interfaces vnic0 or vnic1.

The VMWare you have running on Windows 2008 is probably the VMWare Server 1.0 or 2.0 host-based product. ESXi runs directly on the server hardware without a host operating system. As for the Apple Xserve, attempting to run ESXi may not be worth it. A quick check on Google seems to indicate that it is not possible. However, Parallels has a bare-metal ...

Short answer: Yes they've modified Windows. Longer answer: How they've done that is a business secret, however I know from running older versions of Virtuozzo on Windows that everything they do is accredited by Microsoft so that you can receive full support on a Virtuozzo Container through Parallels and subsequently Microsoft.

There would be several options: IF you are using mod_php - add .htaccess file with php_admin_flag magic_quotes_gpc off in docroot of your site IF you are using mod_php and have server admin (root) privileges - create a file .../conf/vhost.conf in a folder where your domain is located. You will need assistance of server admin, if you don't have admin ...

I don't know about an automatic VM-creation tool; I just wanted to provide some detail as to your low-tech method. To be specific, there are two "low-tech" ways, depending on whether you can afford for the server to be offline for a little while. Take server offline, attach a backup drive, run dd over / and any other major system partitions to create ...

I don't know Parallels specifically but usually with virtualization there is one (or several) virtual switch where the virtual machine's NICs connect to. So the short answer to your question is the VMs will communicate with each other without going out to the router and back. But the longer answer is that it depends on your layer 3 network configuration. ...

Sorry no windows user here neither OSX, but... Does the virtual machine and the OSX share any network? If it works with any private network (192, 172, 10, etc...) to share the connection with the virtual machines, you can try that addressing instead of the loopback networks. Obviously the OSX web server should listen too in that shared-interface or that ...

Yes, of course there is, a variety based on what OS/API you want to use - did you do any research on this of your own? http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/ under 'http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/', it's like 10 keystrokes and 1 click away.

You could try adding a line Include /var/www/vhosts/example.com/conf/*.conf into your httpd.conf file after the default Include conf.d/*.conf at line 210. Which may get things up and running. If this works then you probably need to speak to plesk support to find out why the update overwrote the original so you can prevent it happening again in future. ...

It's not really possible to quantify how unsafe it is to run an operating system that does not have the latest patches and fixes. But we can agree that it's best practice to stay current on your patches as much as possible. Software vendors release patches to remediate security vulnerabilities, compatibility issues, performance problems, etc. They don't ...

Just an update on this for future glances of this question. The definitive answer is that, as of now, "Shadow Copies" or the VSS writer cannot be used with the root partition. This was confirmed with my supplier by Parallels. They did however mention that if there was additional storage areas, other drive letters etc, it can then support VSS on those ...

instructions here Also be sure to have a PTR record for the IP and setup a SPF record to help with spam catchers. You should run the IP through a RBL checker also and make sure its clean. I like MX tool boxes tool here

For SQL Server Express, remote connections are not allowed by default. Have you enabled them? See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11278114/enable-remote-connections-for-sql-server-express-2012

if you were to have an intel based xserve and run a clean install of windows server 2008 on it than you would be able to run ESXi natively where as if you were to use VMware Fusion you would be running a virtual machine and losing almost any power advantage of the new server. I just finished building an Xsan for our Promotions department that integrates ...

I don't own a Xserve so my answer is not definitive but if you do get it to run ESXi are you sure that you want to run an unsupported/possibly not complete support. Is worth saving that money now only to have to spend it later if something breaks? If it is than I would try but you really have to look at cost savings now vs the risk you run into an issue ...

The easiest thing to do is to open Parallels in windowed view, so you see a Windows desktop. Open notepad, then hold CTRL+SHIFT and click on the application icon in your task bar. It should open a new window of notepad with admin access that can edit lmhosts.

Specifically I am wondering whethere there is any sane reason to use Hyper-V No. Licensing is one (you get free VM licenses with Standard, Enterprise, DataCenter iwindws licenses), but that does not mean yo ucan not still install Hyper-V server adnd keep the papearwork properly. Hardware is currently not a reason - the limits of enterprise edition ...

You'll want to get a copy of CentOS 5. This is basically Red Hat Enterprise Linux (which your server appears to be), but without the money charged by Red Hat. CentOS builds all the source from the same packages as Red Hat. See http://www.centos.org/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=15

I had the same problem and uncommenting EnableSendfile Off in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf worked for me (as suggested by Deutch in a thread above).

I use VirtualBox only for running virtual MacOS instances and VMWare for the rest, but in general I consider at least VMWware and Parallels equally good for my use. I can't say this about Virtualbox mainly because I don't use it much (except, as said, for MacOS virtualization), but it at least has the advantage of being free. For Linux, both VMWare and ...

You confused me. where are you running the web app ? Inside or outside VM ? you can forward packets with destination 127.0.0.1 to host's ip but propably you 'll break something if you do that. If you are totally sure that it's the only way, you should better change the value in /etc/hosts from localhost 127.0.0.1 to localhost 10.something Which means that ...
