    mail_sni feature TLS/SSL connection issues - new email settings required?

    Hello! I was hoping that someone might be able to point me in the right direction as I have been unsuccessful in finding information in the forum or through Google. My "issue" may also be the result of my inexperience with how the mail_sni feature is supposed to work. Today I took the jump...

    Best Options for Limiting Email Storage - What do you do?

    Over the years one of the main issues we have run into is with user email storage. With the onset of mobile devices configured with IMAP, storage for website files and data is now secondary as compared to email storage. Long gone are the days of POP mail where users would regularly remove...

    Hi everyone (and Happy New Year), I am a small hosting provider and am interested in migrating my colocated servers to a cloud (vps) environment. While having the complete control has been beneficial, the potential for cost savings is an big factor. I also like the potential to spin up new...

    Controlling Mailbox Sizes and Growth - Some Getting Large

    Hi everyone, Like most others in the forum we offer standard POP and IMAP email services. In the past POP was usually the way our clients would connect, however, things are changing. One trend we are starting to notice is that many of our business users are switching to IMAP due the...

    Hello, We have a customer that has requested a dedicated server with Apache 1.3.42 - they require FrontPage extensions which we recognize are obsolete. When using CustomBuild to install Apache it defaults to 1.3.41 - even when creating the /custom/ap1/configure.apache_ssl folder/file and...

    New Server - Which Perl 5.8.x or 5.10.x?

    Hi everyone, I am working on building a new server and have a quick question that I hope someone can shed some light on. Considering that Perl 5.8.9 is the last version of the 5.8.x branch, would this be a good time to move to Perl 5.10.1? Does anyone know of any potential issues with...

    Adding jQuery to DA Skin Produces Error

    Hi everyone, I am finally getting around to customizing a DA skin and would like to add some jQuery functionality. I have a fairly good feel for the process of skin design but am running into an issue that I am not familiar with (e.g. non-DA template systems don't produce this error). When I...

    Load Linux/FreeBSD from Compact Flash

    Hi everyone, Recently I have been thinking about alternative options for setting up new servers. One idea I have been researching is the idea of booting the OS from Compact Flash Cards using a PCI addon card (which can be configured for Raid1), while using a Raid1 SATA drive array for user...

    PHP LDAP Support - Do you provide this to customers?

    Hi everyone! Today we had a client ask if we would be able to provide LDAP support for PHP. Since this is not compiled by default - it got me thinking about whether or not we should enable this. From a development standpoint it would be interesting to work with (e.g. connecting to the...

    Single DA user login for mutiple domains - shared-IP & static-IP

    Hi everyone, Some of our customers recently have asked if they could manage all of their domains with a single login to DA. This is not a problem (of course) for clients that do not require a static IP address - we have many clients hosting multiple domains under one account in this fashion...

    Server bandwidth capacity or capability

    Hello all! I have an existing client that has asked about hosting one of their sites that requires a higher than average amount of bandwidth per month (nothing "extreme") - roughly 10-15 GB/day or about 375 GB per month. Our "standard" hosting plans do not accommodate for this high amount, so...

    Server Monitoring - Munin Vs. MRTG - Any Recommendations?

    Hi All! I have recently installed Munin as a monitoring tool for one of our servers (in house testing). From what I understand it produces pretty much the same graphs as MRTG. However, it does so using Perl/Shell scripts. The one thing that I'm NOT a fan of is that every 5 minutes Perl runs...
