The $5 VM cannot hold a full cPanel installation. A few suggestions: Configure MySQL to use the minimum settings example .cnf Disable all unnecessary modules in Apache and tune the number of Max/Min/Spare servers Consider switching to nginx and php-fpm Investigate Wordpress plugins that will convert the websites to static HTML Use CloudFlare free account ...

Hope this helps anyone looking at this problem in the future. We've experienced this issue in a similar environment: Ubuntu 14.04 3.13.0 Kernel QEMU KVM environment Our Splunk cluster master was issuing these warnings on average every five minutes. CPU load would go up to 35% routinely, and the warnings would list splunkd or python as the process most ...

Your lo interface is down. Note that it explicitly does not say it is UP and does not have its associated IP address of 127.0.0.1. I have no idea how that would have happened, as this should always be brought up. If the lo interface is down, no programs can bind or connect to localhost. Bring it up yourself: ifup lo

It means root had been logged in for 50 days, 8 hours and 39 minutes, on pts/0, from the IP address specified, when the system crashed. From the timings, I'm guessing the system crashed around 23:42 local time on Aug 5. Edit: It depends on what your VPS does under the hood when you click "reinstall the OS", and without asking your provider, there's no way ...

DNS settings: set up so-called reverse record that bind your IP-address with some domain, f.e. thedilldesign.com. Usually you can do it via VPS management panel set MX records for all your domains to the same value - thedilldesign.com set SPF records for all your domains to confirm that thedilldesign.com is legal submitter for that domains EXIM settings ...

I would say a good backup happens much more often than once a month - but if you are ok with losing the last month of work on your server, that's up to you. Software that was actually designed to do backups have a lot of things going for them though. Off the top of my head: Automated. No chance of you forgetting to run them. Email notifications if they ...

Apache Virtual Host documentation can give you a good overview. Check all [virtualhost] questions for specifics for the specific OS and distribution you are using. On Debian/Ubuntu style systems you can add your subdomains (or other domains) to /etc/apache2/sites-available/[YOUR_SUBDOMAIN] and then run a2ensite [YOUR_SUBDOMAIN]. Don't forget to reload ...

The sites themselves may not be so big, but just running apache (and php) and mysql and the OS can exceed your allotted ram (which you're doing, see your swap usage) if you don't take measures to optimize and keep things small. 512MB doesn't get you very far these days, especially with php and apache at their default settings. Look into optimizing your ...

It is a file permissions/ownership issue. You ran a script to change the permissions (and ownership - look at what the script actually does) of the files served up by your webserver. After doing so, your webserver will no longer serve up those files. Now, you actually need to fix the permissions back after your "permission fix" script broke them. Do note ...

This is not generally done by pinging or ARP trickery. It's done by paperwork. Every request for IPv4 address assignments requires detailed justification, showing that existing addresses are fully utilized and that (in the case of ARIN) the new assignment will be 80% utilized within 30 days. See the ARIN Number Resource Policy Manual for complete details. ...

You can't "get rid of" these so easily. You're seeing this because other customers of your VPS provider are running Dropbox LAN sync. Personally I just drop traffic from other nodes in the same subnet without bothering to log it. For example, if your VPS's IP address is 203.0.113.148 and prefix 24: -A INPUT -s 203.0.113.0/24 ! -d 203.0.113.148 -m comment ...

You have not indicated the OS, distribution and versions of all the 6 Virtual machines you want to share files with....thus I'll assume that they are all Linux. I'd suggest using a filesystem mounted on one VM exported using NFS. The other clients would have the mounted via NFS the exported filesystem (or actually dirctory for that matter) from the one VM. ...

It is not really possible to do this if both sides should share the same hostname (e.g. http://www.example.org and https://www.example.org), because this name will resolve to the same IP address independent of http or https. In theory you could forward all traffic on port 80 on your VPS to the shared hosting, but this would introduce lots of overhead (for ...

I know three solutions, but none of them can be expected to work great. Point the domain to an IP address, which you control. Forward the port from there to where the site is hosted. Ideally this would be done using DSR, but that is probably not supported by the shared host. Use SRV DNS records. This would be the ideal solution. The problem is, that the ...
