MySQL / Re: MySQL backup problem via PHPMyAdmin
« on: December 19, 2008, 01:09:30 AM »
It is not recommended to take the backup of the large MySQL database from PHPMyAdmin because there is a risk that it doesn't take the full backup of your database due to large size. You will need to take the backup from command line.

Generally it downloads the incomplete database due to time out in the PHP script.

How Tos / Disable Direct Root Login and SSH protocol 2 in cPanel/WHM
« on: November 25, 2008, 10:01:30 AM »
It is a good idea to disable root login via SSH. It reduces the security risk. It is also recommended to use SSH protocol 2 and disable SSH protocol 1. SSH protocol 2 is more secure than SSH protocol 1. Following are the steps to disable direct root login and to disable SSH protocol 1:

[1] Login as a 'root' to your server.
[2] Open /etc/ssh/sshd_config file.
pico -w /etc/ssh/sshd_config

[3] Find the below text within file:
Protocol 2, 1
[4] Uncomment the above line and change it as follow:
Protocol 2
[5] Now, search the below text:
PermitRootLogin yes
[6] Uncomment the above line and set as follow:
PermitRootLogin no
[7] Save the file and restart SSH service using the below command:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd restart

Now, no one will be able to login as root directly. They have to use su - to get the root access. You will need to add your user to wheel group in cPanel otherwise you will not be able to use su command.

Email Management Software & Email Clients / Re: Anti spam for Smartermail
« on: November 18, 2008, 01:16:50 AM »
Smartermail 5.5 is now available which has better anti spam capability then Smartermail 4. If you want to integrate any other third party anti spam solution then I would suggest Declude with Smarter as it is easy to integrate it with Smartermail. Please note that such anti spam software require high resources on the server and it may slow down the performance if you have low configuration server.


How Tos / How to redirect using META Tags
« on: November 04, 2008, 02:44:45 AM »

Sometime you may need to redirect your html or htm (static pages to another URL). You can do this using the META tag redirection. you just need to add the following code in your code to redirect the page:

Code: [Select]
<META http-equiv="refresh" content="1;



I think the below steps will help you to fix the problem:

1) Install spamd and spamc:

Code: [Select]
cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts

2) Start the spamd:

Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/spamd -d -c -m 15
3) In order to get exim to use the spamd program, you'll need to make some changes in your /etc/exim.conf. Change:

Code: [Select]
# Spam Assassin
#  driver = accept
#  condition = "${if and { \
#      {!def:h_X-Spam-Flag:} \
#      {!eq {$received_protocol}{spam-scanned}} \
#      {!eq {$received_protocol}{local}} \
#      {exists{/home/${lookup{$domain}lsearch{/etc/virtual/domainowners}{$value}}/.spamassassin/user_prefs}} \
#      {<{$message_size}{100k}} \
#    } {1}{0}}"
#  retry_use_local_part
#  transport = spamcheck
#  no_verify

# Spam Assassin
  driver = accept
  condition = "${if and { \
      {!def:h_X-Spam-Flag:} \
      {!eq {$received_protocol}{spam-scanned}} \
      {!eq {$received_protocol}{local}} \
      {exists{/home/${lookup{$domain}lsearch{/etc/virtual/domainowners}{$value}}/.spamassassin/user_prefs}} \
      {<{$message_size}{100k}} \
    } {1}{0}}"
  transport = spamcheck

4) Restart exim:

Code: [Select]
/sbin/service exim restart
Code: [Select]
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/exim restart
The global spamassassin config file is in /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf

You'll want to make sure that you have the correct call to spamc in the spamcheck transport in your exim.conf:

Code: [Select]
transport_filter = /usr/bin/spamc -u ${lookup{$domain}lsearch*{/etc/virtual/domainowners}{$value}}
If you run debian and are missing perl or some pm files, type:

Code: [Select]
apt-get install perl-base perl-modules

- Log in as admin to  your Plesk control panel.
- In the server administration (click “Server” in the menu), click “Mail”.
- Select the tab “Maximum letter size and relay mode parameters”.
- Check the box “POP 3 lock time”

How Tos / crontab permissions are wrong - Please set to 4755
« on: October 29, 2008, 11:01:50 AM »
One of the common error in cPanel after installation is:

/usr/bin/crontab permissions are wrong. Please set to 4755

An easy fix for this error is:

- Login to your server via SSH and shoot out the following command:
- chmod 4755 /usr/bin/crontab

Please note that you will require root access to the server to change the permissions of crontab.



Are you referring to maximum file size upload limit (upload_max_filesize) in php.ini or maximum allowed packet for mysql (max_allowed_packet)?

To increase the file upload limit for php, just edit your php.ini and set the desired value for upload_max_filesize. You may need to restart Apache or IIS after modifying the php.ini file. To know the php configuration path, just create a new file with .php extension and write the below code:

Code: [Select]
Look at the path set for "Loaded Configuration File".

And to increase the MySQL packet, edit your my.cnf (Linux server) or my.conf (windows), and set the desired value for max_allowed_packet. You will need to restart mysql after making the changes.
