      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.

  2. I have a shop that is looking for experienced support representative(s). Remote work / contract position. Paid weekly. Should have real experience working with WHMCS on Linux VPS and cPanel. Should be familiar with command line and common network tools. Abuse and suspensions are big piece of daily load. Screening of new orders will be required too. Even tempered workers wanted who understand customers pay the bills and can be difficult and may suffer from language barriers. Work is in English speaking only shop. Send me your resume if interested.
  3. I have multiple web sites (and a few other processes) I want to run in an environment that is flexible and as low maintenance as possible. This includes my sites and customer sites, production and development. Most share a common platform (Python, Django, Postgres, Linux (mostly Debian)). I need to be able to give At the moment they are all running in separate VPSs, and some on shared hosting. The problem with multiple unmanaged VPSs is that it is a lot of stuff to manage. I have been experimenting with running the sites on a single VPS with multiple users. It is a "cloud" one so can be scaled up as needed, and there is only one OS and shared libraries to upgrade. The problem is relying on permissions to separate sites from each other, and to give users access to sites is quite fiddly, particularly as I am paranoid enough to run app servers as a different user from the code they exectute. I have not ruled it out as a solution, but it is not as straightforward as expected I thought of running my own VPSs on a dedi, which is cost effective, but adds one more component to manage. It gives me a lot of isolation. I think some sort of container or jail solution will give me the best of both worlds, but I am not familiar enough with it to pick suggestions? I am willing to consider using any *nix OS, although Debian Linux is what I am most familiar with. Resource isolation is not an issue: it will not be running anything I expect to cause problems. Easy admin and security are. Any suggestions?

  7. Do we have any resident cobblers / DIY types who are using Linux for CCTV / security related? I mean legit Linux DIY not premade embedded systems. I am fussing with some China dump wifi cameras (read cheap). Quite interesting little units for the price (bound to be more like them). ~ $15 a camera delivered. RTSP streaming from these and seems to be a really common software stack they are loading into lots of these China cams from many many brands. Do we have people using the Open Source Zoneminder DVR / CCTV software? Considering trying to get Zoneminder running on one of my unused ARM boards (yes it exists for ARM also).

  9. Working on or wanting to work on some building projects over the winter. One thing I am experimenting with is various materials for simple R-value - think insulating value or ability to keep heat in or out (both are of interest). Looking for cheap and open source solutions for sensing temperature (thermometer) and transmitting those datapoints real time to a central collection station. Looking for something ideally ready made on the sensor with simple controls in Linux / means to get the data from the device. Tethering to USB is fine, can use wifi to communicate on this. Looking for sensors that have about -30F to 400F range (that's outside temperature minimum and temperature near heat exchanger - not directly in flame path). Anyone have currently or prior experimented with anything that sounds usable? Arduino solutions may be fine, but I am just entirely unfamiliar with.

  11. Hi to everyone. A friend sent me this question below and i will love to get more ideas on the subject matter."I have had a couple discussions with some friends about the "non-necessity" of a Plesk or cPanel to manage a VPS Server operating on Windows OS Server. They keep insisting on the fact that it is needed because they code on .NET. Would appreciate if more information could be brought to light on this and the possibility of managing the server without a cPanel." Your thoughts will be appreciate
  12. Howdy folks, I've recently been having problems with my Ubuntu VPS on my Windows server. I have access to both the Host node and the guest node (since this is a multi-use server and I wanted to use both Windows and Linux services), and I guess I thought I set it up properly but it seems there's a networking problem on the server. There's periods when the Ubuntu VM has major packet loss while the actual host server is mostly fine. Sometimes when I'm rsyncing large files (12 GB worth of files), the network gets dropped on the entire Ubuntu VM and I get the error "ping: sendmsg: No buffer space available". This was reproducible whenever I'd rsync out larger files. Basic research shows this is usually due to an incompatibility of the on-board NIC on the Server (of course this is assuming Ubuntu was installed on the base hardware, not within a VM). I'm assuming this is a problem with my bridge setup. Anyways, this is a Hyper-V Generation 1 VM. The bridge is basically all default variables requested when setting it up through the Wizard available on the Windows Server 2012 R2 (Datacenter Edition). Upon further Google Searching, I've found that we have to increase the memory allocation for the packets, and was suggested I add the following lines into sysctl: net.core.rmem_max=16777216 net.core.wmem_max=16777216 net.ipv4.tcp_rmem=4096 87380 16777216 net.ipv4.tcp_wmem=4096 65536 16777216 In addition, the following command was executed: echo 83886080 > /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_max Anyways, even with these changes I'm still having some problems. Anyone know of a good way to start troubleshooting this issue? Thanks!
  13. Hello vpsboard community. I'm the owner of a small VPS I use to host a TeamSpeak Server for my Guild. I still have enough Bandwidth and Resources left on it so I would like to create and host a website and forum on it, as well as adding a custom domain. I did read some tutorials on how to create a website and how to create a forum, but I have no idea how to do all of that combined into 1 single website. What I had in mind was something like www.website.com and www.website.com/forum Could anyone help me out or point me in the right direction? Thank you advance for your help.
  14. how to install csf firewall ? -> So, login to your server via ssh and let’s start CSF installation by retrieving the package files using wget command: # wget http://configserver.com/free/csf.tgz Unpack the archive: # tar xfz csf.tgz Navigate to the uncomperssed csf directory: # cd csf Run the installer: # sh install.sh It will create configuration file and add all required cPanel services to allow list. Let’s disable testing mode by editing main CSF configuration file. Open the file using any editor (vi, nano, etc): # nano /etc/csf/csf.conf and change TESTING = “1? to TESTING = “0? When done, restart CSF: # csf -r Now CSF is installed and ready. You can simply manage it via cPanel WHM interface WHM > Config Security & Firewall:

  16. I keep bumping into need for Windows. Business software annoyance. WINE while it is fine for some stuff, isn't sufficient for everything. Die hard Linux folks around here have any current similar scenario in their world or those around them? Someone have a solution / preferred current solutions for running Windows desktop in Linux virtualized world? Specifically on the desktop. Rather run this locally inhouse. Was contemplating a KVM install via Proxmox and with Windows real install within that... Just need GUI to work reasonably well in Windows and single monitor, nothing fancy, no sound. Alternative at this point is picking up a cheap beater laptop with Windows pre-installed/included.

  18. Do we have any rogue Chromebook owners who have unlocked their device, installed real BIOS and a Linux OS they are using successfully? Still shopping for a kick around small notebook for off grid and outdoors. Chromebooks 13-14 with the 2955U processor have caught my eye as acceptable. That is after ChromeOS is purged and the unit is BIOS flashed and real OS installed. Any done this and how has the experience been?
  19. Hey guys! Let's start at the beginning. I am an 23 years old System Administrator entrant, I am done with my schools recently. So I want to start my online business by selling VPS but I have so many questions about it. I have a few unused computers and I am wondering if I can make some bucks with them. The main stats are: 2 core, 2 gb ram, 200 gb hdd 8 core, 4 gb ram, 1000 gb hdd link: 150/15 mbps Is there a way to make the servers fully automated with free solutions? I dont have hundreds of dollars for licenses. I've been googling around and found that it is WHMCS that I need but could not find a minimalist and free wordpress(or not wordpress) template for my site. I am also intrested Linux and Windows solutions. I know there isn't a tutorial like "how to be a vps provider" but I hope you guys can give me some advice. Thanks Regards, Zsolt!
  20. I know a lot of the folks around here were fans of Crunchbang distro... for older hardware, minimalist GUI, etc. Crunchie tossed in the towel earlier this year. For a long time the dev and releases were really delayed. Someone else has picked up Crunchbang and running with it for the future. They have a release ready for your downloading and install pleasure: https://crunchbangplusplus.org/ vpsBoard member @Munzy has set up some direct downloads (Crunchie+ is doing the Torrent download only thing): https://cdn.content-network.net/mirror/crunchbangplusplus/1.0/
  21. I am working on a bigger extended LAN project - think neighborhood level. Trying to find something that does VOIP-like calling, ideally without a central server. Peer to peer would be ideal. Something with calling ability, missed call notification, maybe text chat. Platform here is Linux, but something with an Android client too would be awesome. Anyone using or aware of such a thing? Only need 1-to-1 calling, no conferencing or group functions.
  22. Popular e-retailer Newegg recently put Intel's new PC on a stick devices up for pre-order. These sticks feature a quad core Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB of on board storage and are targeted at Linux users. $109.99... These are direct HDMI powered and look like a great addition to your big HDTV with multiple HDMI ports :) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883800003&cm_re=intel_compute_stick-_-83-800-003-_-Product They also are releasing a more costly Windows based model that bumps up the RAM to 2GB.
  23. Sysdig

    I found this pretty nifty Linux/Windows/OSX Application the other night and thought I'd share it here with all of you. No I didn't make this, I just found it by browsing /r/sysadmins. sysdig "A New System Troubleshooting Tool Built for the Way You Work" http://www.sysdig.org/ Supports RHEL Based Distros, RHEL from 6, CentOS from 6, Amazon Linux, Fedora from 13, Oracle Linux from 6. Supports Debian based distros, Debian from 6, Ubuntu from 10.04 and Linux Mint from 9. Latest versions of Debian and Ubuntu include sysdig, though they recommend installing it yourself to get the latest and greatest. http://www.sysdig.org/install/
  24. I am interested in using Bitcoin, as a holder of such, as an end customer. Late to the party and probably about right time to jump in. Looking for a wallet solution for Bitcoin, that runs locally, in Linux (Debian). Ideally something that is flexible enough to support offline (isolating a machine for coins that isn't internet connected beyond whatever initially). Anything out there folks are using that they recommend for this?
  25. I have someone in my network of folks that is a Level 3 Linux Admin who is for hire currently. Remote worker, English speaker, good experience. If you are hiring and are receptive to remote workers, send me a PM and I'll put the two of you together.
