      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.

  1. I have no clue if this is the proper place to post this, but I shall try! I'm looking for the best self-hosted project management system. (web based) Any experiences so I don't have to go through the trial and error stage? XD
  2. I'm currently paying Softlayer for 1 server in San Jose and another 1 in Singapore with below specs. I was hoping to at least be able to find better priced alternative in US. Usage: Legit software distribution and downloadable content Softlayer (current) HDD: 500GB Bandwidth: 20TB CPU: 3.5GHz Xeon E3 RAM: 8GB OS: Ubuntu Price: $143 Requirement HDD: 500GB Bandwidth: Unlimited 100MBps or [email protected] CPU: Minimum dual core RAM: Minimum 2GB OS: Ubuntu Price: Less than $143 KVM or IPMI is a must, unless they have really great 24/7 support.
  3. As the new year steps closer, it's a goal of mine to implement some software to help me track overdue tasks, new tasks, just tasks in general. I have a mass of companies I interact with and have tasks related to, so looking for a software that is flexible in that way. I do like web based apps typically (not fond of apps on tablets, phones, etc.) - as input means blows chunks. Want to see a device like that broken, ask me to type something on it with on screen auto correcting popup tech tard keyboard rubbish. What are folks using - yeah throw apps and desktop stuff in here still :) Anyone sitting on my much needed solution?
  4. Anyone here heavily use SMS/text in their business or have a client that does? Looking for a solution and recommendations for software (ideally Android + Linux --- although hosted cloud may work). Software that will receive, all response to and do meaningful sorting, searching, etc. with texts. Ideally, allow texts to be managed more like a business asset much like we all use email. I am *NOT* a text fan, but seems to be oh so popular with many and increasing usage around me. Tell me what you use/recommend.
  5. Yesterday I was given an idea on IRC (I won't say who it is, in case they do want me to) of a open alternative to low end box. Something that is based on transparency and something that is actually good ;). There are a lot of review sites for VPS' around, but many of them are in a blog format. Lowendbox itself is based on (what I believe is) a wordpress blog. This is clearly not optimised towards listing plans and crunching data for it's users. I have started development on a system, which is all open source (link at the bottom to the Github repo) that modularises the way offers are listed. It follows the same method of a linear time-based list, similar to a blog, but each offer is based on a provider. This allows you to easily filter each providers offers. Each offer also contains plans. Plans are the individual packages that the providers provide (they show the RAM, bandwidth, virtualisation type, etc) and contain all the billing information as well as coupon codes (if applicable) and so on. Offers can also be discussed, similar to a blog format, where logged in users are able to comment on an offer. I am also currently working on a selector function, where users can look for a range of plans by filtering data of all active specials. In the future, there will a provider access, where providers can manage their own offers (obviously moderated before being publicly available) and request new offers to be added to the release queue. Right now I am in need of resources, and this is where I am asking the community for help. I need to get both a build server up and running, and a beta testing server where users can thrash and look for bugs. If any providers would be able to donate space, it would be greatly appreciated. The whole system is intentionally loosely coupled to bootstrap 3 and will most likely move away from it in the near future.

  6. Anyone here run a site with self hosted ads? I am looking for recommendations for a PHP based advertising script/package (prefer FOSS or similar good licensing). Anything out there others recommend?
  7. I understand that a lot of people think hardware raid is superior to software raid, but is this still true with the advancements of modern servers? What are the benefits of hardware/software raid?
