    Best disk storage/raid server setup for VPS host server?

    Care to elaborate why RAID 5 will be nothing but trouble? Indeed, SSDs should have no trouble at all with a consistent 5MB/s of data to write, since many can write a hundred times faster than that. Nick

    Best disk storage/raid server setup for VPS host server?

    RAID 5 is popular because of its low cost combined with enhanced performance.  You need three drives to make RAID 5 work, and it tolerates one drive failure. (Comparison of RAID levels) I still think that the panic over the flash writing limit on SSDs is unduly alarmist.  If you need more I/O...

    Free Self-hosted Project Management Software?

    Oh, no, not you,, I meant @s.majdak. Anyway, @clarity, I'm glad I'm not the only one who prefers Redmine. =] Nick

    Free Self-hosted Project Management Software?

    Whoa, why are we bringing back a topic from July 2013?  To increase post count? Anyway, now that we're talking about free self-hosted project management software, can I ask y'all what you think of Redmine?  I still use Redmine for project management.  Maybe I'm backwards and stuck in 2009, but...

    Want to buy vps

    Not to mention the bandwidth-hogging nature of torrents due to the lots of connections they make. Nick

    Run Linux Commands from Web Browser

    **sighs** … another compromised website. Customer, why don't you update from WordPress 2.8 already?! This happens more often than you'd think. -_- I've even had some customers try to upgrade from Joomla! 1.0 to Joomla! 1.5… geez. Nick

    How did you come up with your company name?

    We started doing business in the web hosting industry to bring innovative new features to VPS hosting. Lots of Virtuozzo/OpenVZ hosts out there, probably because it's very cheap to maintain. After working with Virtuozzo, KVM, Hyper-V, and Xen, I found that I really liked Xen for how...

    Benefits and downfalls of running Nginx and Apache side-by-side?

    () This website keeps returning HTTP 504 errors on occasion. @MannDude, are you sure the CPU is the bottleneck when your site spawns PHP processes that your production VM cannot handle?  If it's a virtual machine, you could add more CPU power to it to keep the site alive, couldn't you? I'd...

    504 Issues Here

    There were more HTTP 504 errors earlier. For those who don't know about the other topic that @MannDude is talking about, it's  We should continue our discussion in that more descriptive thread. Nick

    JVKZ.COM | Core i3 | 4GB DDR3 Ram | 2x 1TB HW RAID 1 | GB Port | DDoS Protection | $30

    It's a perfect match to what's described here except for the price, so it could be that @jvkz got the hardware moved to a Dedirack XL or made some custom deal to be able to offer such a low price. For those ordering, I'd be wary of how much bandwidth is guaranteed, since that 1Gbps might be...

    Higher %wa value on OpenVZ server

    Hmm, I'd consider that almost concerning.  I would suggest not adding any more VPS containers to that host node or I/O would become uncomfortably slow. What's the disk hardware like?  Model?  Size?  RAID?  Perhaps the community here can help you identify a new hardware rearrangement to help...

    cPanel certification?

    I've got my "L1: cPanel Base Certification: Technical" certification, and it really doesn't mean anything.  I got a web hosting job in 2013 probably because I wrote in my application that I had 5 years of prior cPanel experience and 6 years of Linux experience.  It was after I got hired that the...

    Problems with WiFi

    Thanks for the input, everyone! I actually switched ISPs at home from Time Warner Cable to AT&T U-verse. The Arris cable modem/router seemed to be the culprit, since everything started working since the new ISP put in its own modem/router. Ping has consistently increased by about 28ms to and...

    Higher %wa value on OpenVZ server

    That seems quite healthy to me. Does this happen to all VPS containers and/or the host node? If writing commands itself is slow (like a significant lag between keystrokes), there could be packet loss or high ping.  Unless you're talking about tab completion for a directory listing, which would...
