      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.

      -MannDude

  1. The hacking of LinuxMint's site is yet another example of why lazy idiots who are running outdated WordPress installs with multiple critical vulnerabilities need to update their sites regularly (hosting industry examples are blog.colocrossing.com WP v3.5.1, lowendbox v 4.3.1, Quadranet CEO's ilanmishan v 4.2.4 ...). If you're running an outdated install you put everyone else on the Internet at risk when your site and server inevitably gets hacked and starts serving up malware or is used to attack other servers (of course the two hosting companies I highlighted who are guilty of this probably don't care about this since they've historically made a good chunk of their income by selling to spammers, hackers, botnet operators, and other criminals).

  2. ODD Sharer Behavior

    Hello, I am new here and I am hoping to get some answers and continue to use this forum for all my VPS issues; I have notices an odd behavior through my site over time and I think it's about time I took care of it; I have a VPS through WHM cPanel. Medium size package with 2 CPU Cores and 4GB RAM. About 300 Posts (WordPress Platform); I am using an Ok theme that is optimized actually and my score through gtmetrix is about 98% - 92% for yslow. Here is my issue: When I log in to my personal twitter and retweet my website tweets (Let's say about 10 of them) my VPS overloads immediately to 80% or more while it is under 1% any other times. Checking the logs through cPanel I noticed 1 (one) PHP file with "a lot" of queries and that is a sharrre.php - The only thing I can think of is maybe it is not optimized? The theme builder guy is a "no go" for this specific issue. I am attaching the code of that specific file so maybe you guys can help. I would REALLY appreciate it. Sarah. <?php header('content-type: application/json'); //Sharrre by Julien Hany $json = array('url'=>'','count'=>0); $json['url'] = $_GET['url']; $url = isset(urlencode($_GET['url'])) ? $_GET['url'] ?

The energy we use in excess of that comes from clean, renewable, hydro-electric power, sourced from Niagara Falls, New York, at a substantially reduced cost for power compared to traditional data centers. Our other green technology investments, such as Smart Aisle precision cooling and cold containment systems, provide an additional 33% efficiency over traditional data centers, further reducing our electricity utilization. This all adds up to entirely renewable electricity, and a zero carbon footprint, as evidenced by our EPA ENERGY STAR certification. Ultimately, this adds up to a lower cost of providing our reliable service. Lastly, we own and operate our own facility, servers, routers, and network connections. We are not resellers or wholesalers, so we do not have the higher operating costs of renting servers and equipment. This allows us to pass down the savings to our customers. Where are the servers located? These specials are available in our ENERGY STAR certified, GREEN data center, in New York’s Tech Valley Region. Do you have a money back guarantee? Yes. A 30-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee is available to all new customers. Why host with TurnKey Internet? TurnKey Internet provides superior hosting performance at affordable prices, backed with bullet-proof reliability and a 100% network up-time guarantee. We offer the latest in technology, including green, renewable power produced on-site at our data center. Fully-managed services allow you peace of mind with off-site backups, firewall setup, and 24/7 system administration support.

  4. Hi folks, wondering if anyone here has tested Nginx php-fpm fastcgi_cache with Google ngx_pagespeed module ? I am testing Centmin Mod v1.2.3 beta install of Nginx 1.4.1 + PHP 5.3.25 (php-fpm) with ngx_pagespeed 1.5.27.3 beta and wanting to see how it would fair with a fresh Wordpress 3.5.1 install at localhost/wp. Results: I successfully tried setting up fastcgi_cache for php for wordpress http://centminmod.com/nginx_configure_wordpress.html#fastcgicache Enabling ngx_pagespeed enabled top of this, works fine for ngx_pagespeed itself http://centminmod.com/nginx_configure_wordpress.html#pagespeed But, with ngx_pagespeed enabled, it drops Siege benchmark performance back to non-fastcgi_cache levels as if ngx_pagespeed rendered fastcgi_cache useless ?

  5. Hey everyone. Thought I should share this method of speeding WordPress up dramatically without much configuration. This is the caching method used over at Gatsby and any WordPress based client sites I maintain. As the cache is in-memory, it handles surges of traffic very well. Want to see how it handles? Head over to Gatsby. Requirements: The ability to follow simple instructions Root access to your server (Just incase this is picked up by Google) About 15 minutes of your time This tutorial assumes you already have WordPress set up and ready to roll. I personally use this in conjunction with APC. It should work with other caching methods as well, but your milage may vary. 1. Back your stuff up Although nothing we're going to be doing will touch your databases and whatnot, it's probably a good idea to make sure you're able to revert to how things were originally. Just incase you completely fudge something up. In all honesty, you should have robust backups in place already. If not, here's your gentle reminder to get backups set up. Also - It's not a backup unless you're able to restore it easily in an emergency. 2. Add a Repo This is genuinely the most taxing part of the process, although it's relatively simple. The issue is that most Linux distros have pretty outdated versions of Redis in their repositories. Although you could just install the respective .deb/.rpm, it's a good idea to get a frequently updated repository added to your system just incase an exploit is found in Redis. If you're running Debian Linux I personally recommend you use the DotDeb repository If you're running a RedHat based Linux distro, I personally recommend you use Remi Collet's repository Follow the respective instructions on each site! 3. Install Redis If you're running a Debian based Linux distro apt-get install redis If you're running a RedHat based Linux distro yum install redis Once installed, you can fire up Redis /etc/init.d/redis start OR /etc/init.d/redis-server start 4. Make WordPress Use Redis Here's the last step. We're going to need a couple of files to make WordPress interact with Redis. The idea is that we want to use a new index.php, so that every single valid request hits Redis before asking WordPress to regenerate the page. To do that, we'll have to move the original index.php mv index.php backup_index.php You'll then need to grab predis.php so PHP can interact with Redis wget http://uploads.staticjw.com/ji/jim/predis.php Finally, grab the new index.php wget http://pastie.org/pastes/7953263/text -O index.php If all goes well, load up your WordPress site and pages should appear. If not, you've probably done something wrong. Final Statements I do not claim any credit for this caching method, all of which goes to Jim Westergren. In regards to security, it only displays the cached pages if the visitor isn't logged in - That means that whilst you're logged in pages may load slower. To refresh a page's cache, force a page reload (F5). Pages aren't regenerated if you're simply clicking through pages.

While it may seem incredible to offer these amazing prices and discounts, the reality is that in the data center and cloud hosting business, electricity is the largest expense.

The energy we use in excess of that comes from clean, renewable, hydro-electric power, sourced from Niagara Falls, New York, at a substantially reduced cost for power compared to traditional data centers. Our other green technology investments, such as Smart Aisle precision cooling and cold containment systems, provide an additional 33% efficiency over traditional data centers, further reducing our electricity utilization. This all adds up to entirely renewable electricity, and a zero carbon footprint, as evidenced by our EPA ENERGY STAR certification. Ultimately, this adds up to a lower cost of providing our reliable service. Lastly, we own and operate our own facility, servers, routers, and network connections. We are not resellers or wholesalers, so we do not have the higher operating costs of renting servers and equipment. This allows us to pass down the savings to our customers. Where are the servers located? These specials are available in our ENERGY STAR certified, GREEN data center, in New York’s Tech Valley Region. Do you have a money back guarantee? Yes. A 30-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee is available to all new customers. Why host with TurnKey Internet?

  7. I am really new to hosting my websites with a VPS and relatively new to Ubuntu. Always used shared hosting plans until now. I am trying to install WordPress on my VPS running Ubuntu with LEMP and I am successful for the most part. However I get this error message. 2014/12/19 14:29:14 [error] 901#0: *147 recv() failed (104: Connection reset by peer) while reading response header from upstream, client: XX.XX.XXX.XX, server: bloggingwithdani.com, request: "GET /wp-admin/themes.php?action=delete&stylesheet=boot_strap&_wpnonce=89c8625570 HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock:", host: "XXX.XXX.XX.119", referrer: "http://XXX.1XX.XX.1X9/wp-admin/themes.php?theme=boot_strap" The error happens every time I try to remove either a Theme or a Plugin and it only happens on the remove function. I can install Themes and Plugins without any problem. WordPress is using SSH2 to connect to the server. Here is a screen shot of the server block for this website. http://www.evernote.com/shard/s264/sh/a33d195c-aa51-4bae-8fcc-63cc345a662b/fd8033b4bcbc91ddcf30121ff26fe64d What could be the reason for this problem? I've checked the PHP5 log at (/var/log/php5-fpm.log) however there is nothing relating to this error.

  10. This morning some idiot thought his little compromised Wordpress bot net would terrorize a provider. It worked for a few minutes then humans sprung to. Slews and slews of URL requests made at the same time through common WordPress exploitation. This details the common exploit via the Pingback mechanism: http://blog.sucuri.net/2014/03/more-than-162000-wordpress-sites-used-for-distributed-denial-of-service-attack.html In a bit when they tire out and/or run out money, interest or compromised machines, I'll publish all the compromised IPs so others can take proactive stance and get to snipping them too. Open to recommendations on services and sites such compromised sites can be added to for sh!t listing.
  11. Time to start the discussion about how to secure wordpress blogs. There are some actions everyone should take to secure his wordpress blog: Strong passwords I use openssl to generate passwords: openssl rand -base64 60 Change the number of digits too. Limit login attempts There is a plugin doing the job. It blocks the lightweight attacks. Because a botnet or someone using Tor does have a lot of IPs. Best feature: This plugin is sending you email warnings if such attacks happen. Another plugin (thanks Abdussamad) to limit the number of login attemts: Fail2ban plugin. This plugin is creating log entries that can be catched by fail2ban. Password protect wp-admin directory htaccess/htpasswd are your friends. Never ever use common usernames No "admin", no "Admin", no "root", no "Administrator", not your nickname, not the domain name, well I guess you got it. Add some filters Ensure that wordpress is not telling everyone that the user exists but the password was wrong: nano /wp-content/your-theme/functions.php add_filter('login_errors',create_function('$a', "return null;")); Disable xml-rpc, if you do not need it Another filter: add_filter( 'xmlrpc_enabled', '__return_false' ); Yup, xmlL-rpc is enabled by default since wordpress 3.5. And of course there is a plugin for that. Rename wp-login.php Nice catch from eva. There is a plugin that is able to rename the permalinks of the wp-login.php. Nice way to let the attacker run/hit into empty space. Update your wordpress instance and backup your database On request the lighttpd and apache config for the password protection: lighttpd $HTTP["url"] == "/wp-login.php" { auth.backend = "htpasswd" auth.backend.htpasswd.userfile = "/etc/lighttpd/wordpress" auth.require = ("/wp-login.php" => ( "method" => "basic", "realm" => "wordpress", "require" => "valid-user" )) } $HTTP["url"] =~ "^/wp-admin/" { auth.backend = "htpasswd" auth.backend.htpasswd.userfile = "/etc/lighttpd/wordpress" auth.require = ("/wp-admin" => ( "method" => "basic", "realm" => "wordpress", "require" => "valid-user" )) } apache <Files wp-login.php> AuthName "Restricted Wordpress-Area" AuthType Basic AuthUserFile ~/wordpress Require valid-user </Files> # Deny access to important files <FilesMatch "(\.htaccess|\.htpasswd)"> Order deny,allow Deny from all </FilesMatch> ngix location = /wp-login.php { auth_basic "Restricted Wordpress-Area"; auth_basic_user_file /etc/nginx/wordpress; include /etc/nginx/conf.d/fastcgi.conf; }
  12. Got some email notifications for login failures on some wordpress blogs I host. 103320 lockouts. 1180 IP are currently blocked from trying to log in. What the heck? Looks like they are using the xml-rpc interface (so password secured wp-admin does not help). Clever trick because xml-rpc is activated by default in the latest wordpress version and there is no gui button to deactivate it (there is a plugin for that).
  13. Seeing as folks have already shared various Wordpress cache tutorials, I'll share mine for a Centmin Mod Nginx Wordpress + WP-FFPC Plugin Setup + ngx_pagespeed setup :) 1. Install Centmin Mod 2. Nginx Wordpress + WP-FFPC Plugin Setup + ngx_pagespeed setup Guide is broken down into 4 sections: Installing WordPress Installing WP-FFPC plugin Check to see if WP-FFPC plugin is working Enabling ngx_pagespeed module Enjoy :) FYI, if you are wondering between the fastcgi_cache vs WP-FFPC memcached vs Redis cache methods. Fastest to slowest is in this order for performance = fastcgi_cache > WP-FFPC memcached > Redis cache on Centmin Mod based installs.
