Other Web Hosting Stuff / Re: Reseller Web Hosting
« on: April 18, 2018, 03:40:01 PM »
. Few windows based applications need licenses; this makes reseller web hosting quite expensive.  Some reseller web hosting such as Windows web hosting is not so stable compared to Linux web hosting, and may need rebooting from time to time.
This depends on the web hosting company. If your provider is overselling the services, you may face such issue. Also, nowadays, it is possible to get low cost VPS which gives full control on your server but you will need server management skill.

It is not opening. It seems that hosting company is dead now!

I have not heard of Linovus.ca. There are plenty of option for development. It can evaluate them based on your requirements.


I have two systems running Windows 10 Home on AMD Athlon X2. Since Microsoft has recently released critical updates to patch security flaw in chipsets, I have installed them on my two systems running AMD Athlon X2. After installing updates, the systems are now unbootable and it is loop to rollback to previous Windows. But this is endless loop and system is not accessible. Does anyone notice similar issues?


I am offering web hosting services and I often need different hosting software license like cPanel, Softaculous, CloudLinux, RVSkin, LiteSpeed webserver (not many 2-3 licenses only). Currently I am managing all those license with different providers and it is real headache to manage them.

I am looking for a single provider which are offering all those license at one place so that it is easy to manage as well.

Hosting Software and Control Panels / Alternative for WHMCS
« on: October 26, 2016, 06:17:12 PM »

I just got an email from WHMCS stating that they will be increasing the monthly license cost. They will now charge based on total active clients and I have more than 250 active clients so this will increase my monthly license cost as well.

I am not using much module in WHMCS and I am looking for low cost alternative to WHMCS. Do you have any recommendation?


I am using latest WebsitePanel 2.1 version and then this control panel development was stopped. I used this version to move my old Windows 2003 control panel and I did manual migration hence there is no option to move for another control panel now.

I just noticed that WebsitePanel 2.1 disk calculation scheduler is not working. Disk calculation scheduler is set but it is not counting disk usage of the accounts. I could not find any solution to resolve this and there is no community support available for WebsitePanel 2.1.

Can someone assist to resolve this?

I just noticed that WebsitePanel 2.1 bandwidth scheduler is not working. Bandwidth scheduler is set but it is not counting bandwidth usage of the accounts. I could not find any solution to resolve this and there is no community support available for WebsitePanel 2.1.

I am using last version of WebsitePanel 2.1. Since then it has been discontinued and their website is no longer working. I am having hard time to use WebsitePanel scheduler to take automatic backup using scheduler. I have configured the scheduler properly but it is not taking any backup.

Since their community forum is no longer active, I am stuck. Can someone help to fix this?



I am using Windows 2008 R2 server with Microsoft IIS 7.5. I have configured Microsoft FTP server on this. But when I try to login, I get following error message:

530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.

Following is the FileZilla logs:

How can I fix this?

I had similar issue with one of the third party PHP/MySQL script and the root cause of the issue was MySQL strict mode. MySQL server was configured with strict mode.

Thanks for sharing detailed article on how to resolve  “The specified service has been marked for deletion” error.


I think I have got my answer. But I have a question regarding domain configuration path. There must be some xml file that contains list of all domain path. Could you please let me know exactly from where I have to change path?

I found an useful link from SmarterTools website. That should help you to change path:

Hi There,

I am configuring WHMCS for automatic support and billing...

I want to send billing reminder without sending an invoice...is it possible? If so, how?
Not sure what exactly would you like to achieve. But if you don't send invoice and just send reminders, your clients will be confused.

WordPress has released an update to address to critical vulnerability in their comment system. An automatic WordPress upgrade had been rolled out. If you have disabled it, you should upgrade your WordPress to latest version immediately.



I was able to fix the issue using the steps available in your blog post.


I removed one program from my Windows server but I found that service was still listed under "Services". I manually try to delete service using the following command from command prompt:

sc delete myswervicename

But it failed to delete the service with following error:

[SC] DeleteService FAILED 1072:
The specified service has been marked for deletion.

Can someone please help me to fix this?


Hosting Software and Control Panels / CentOS 6.6 Released
« on: November 01, 2014, 07:49:40 PM »
It appears they just released CentOS v6.6. The announcement can be found here. If your running CentOS v6.5 (or earlier), run "yum update" as root. Does anyone notice anything new or changed? Is anyone having any problems with it?

cPanel has been released new version of cPanel/WHM ( 11.46 Built for Everyone )


Does anybody have experience with the new version ?

We currently use CentOS 6 on all our cPanel servers, but have recently talked about changing out to CloudLinux for all since abusers are becoming more and more prevalent.

Especially since changing to CL is quite easy from CentOS using their scripts.

I was wondering a couple of things from people who use it and who have done this change over.

1. What are your thoughts, is it really worth the price monthly for what is does? Will it really help with abusers?

2. Is there anything to worry about with the change over to CL using their automated scripts on production servers? Has anyone ever had any problems with this converting CentOS 6 to CL? Anything we should check first before doing it?

Any ideas, past experiences or thoughts you can give me on this would be greatly appreciated.

« on: November 01, 2014, 07:44:02 PM »
BoxBilling was a free billing system but it looks like that it is almost dead now. Last release was on 2013-06-11. I believe there was no security updates were released more than a year.


On a large blog, wp-cron.php should be disabled to avid over resource utilization. You need it only if you are using any plugin related to WordPress cron.

Dedicated Server Hosting / Re: DDoS protected server in Panama
« on: September 17, 2014, 11:09:53 AM »
I have never read any reviews for PanamaServer.com and I am not sure the location of their servers. If they have money back policy, you should first try and evaluate it.


Hey thanks for the quick response. I was able to resolve the issue by following the steps mentioned the article. Thanks again!


Vulnerabilities / Re: WordPress Slider Revolution Plugin vulnerability
« on: September 17, 2014, 11:04:27 AM »
This is really severe vulnerability. I could see that still there are large number of websites which are using unpatched version of this plugin.


Vulnerabilities / Re: cPanel Security update - cPanel TSR-2014-0007
« on: September 17, 2014, 11:03:37 AM »
This is one of the reasons why we should set cPanel update to install automatic. When you are managing hundreds of server, it is lengthy process to manual run upcp on all servers.

Looks like they are now providing frequent updates to OnApp. The latest version is far better compare to their initial release.
