      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

  3. Considering the sort of people we find in this community. Hiding the PoC is the right thing to do in my opinion. While it won't stop them finding it, it's a bit of a deterrent. No names being mentioned because you all know who they are.
  4. Passwords and Storage!

    Probably bcrypt with a pinch of salt
  5. What Backup Software Do YOU Use?

    rsnapshot / rsync usually.

  7. Your biggest pain as a provider

    I'd love to use it but we're not using WHMCS. Thanks though!
  8. Your biggest pain as a provider

    We get disputes from people that cancel service then fail to cancel their sub. Which PayPal clearly states is their responsibility. Worst one we had was a cancelled service in May.. A refund of the last 7 months was asked for a few weeks ago.. Took us ages to piece it together.
  9. Your biggest pain as a provider

    PayPal subscriptions. I hate them, I hate the disputes. I wish customers would read the terms of a PayPal sub.
  10. Yea, we're gonna need some more information to help you. "It doesn't work" does not help anyone. We need any error output that you've got to get a start. Any logs from the server side would also be helpful
  11. What is the temp at your house?

    It's 22C in my lounge. But the heating is on as well as a half rack of servers in the corner. Outside is currently around 8C
