A web server refers to the software that helps to deliver web content that can be accessed either through the Internet or through an intranet. The primary function of a web server is to store, process and deliver web pages to clients. The communication between client and server takes place using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). The most common use of web servers is to host websites, but there are other uses such as gaming, data storage, running enterprise applications, handling email, FTP, etc.

Hello,

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Hi,
I have been tasked with a project where we have 4 identically constructed databases with different customer data in each running on premises using MSSQL and Microsoft Dynamics 2016.  I need to export specific customer data from each of the 4 databases and import that data into a MySQL database that is hosted off site with our web site. This data will then be periodically uploaded to the website database either with triggers or at a timed interval.

As I have very little experience with this type of database project, I am seeking information on how this can be done and what basic steps are needed in order for this to work.  Any additional details would be appreciated.
Thank you!

I need to set up an IIS site (with PHP already installed) and import some forms to be accessed through the browser. It's been two years since I've used IIS and I have forgotten how to correctly set up a new website. (What port to use, making sure PHP is installed correctly using the PHP Manager, how to import the PHP forms created by one of our faculty members, make sure it is accessible on the web, etc.) Any help will be appreciated.

I don't think I set it up correctly - Hoping it will be accessible through: https://casweb.memphis.edu/msci-forms

Thanks,

I need to set up a easy-to-remember URL like www.mycompany.com/PRODUCTX
However, the actual location of PRODUCTX may change.
1. What is this called:  The process of setting up a easy-to remember URL which leads to an actual URL whose address may contain a bunch of letters and numbers, etc.
2. Is it called a primary URL?  Destination URL?

Hello Experts,

I am using Firepower management console and we do alot of url filtering. Recently I came across a situation we have block on certain countries blocked using the GeoLocation. I have a site that I want to Allow but the issue is country is blocked using the Geolocation.

I tried to allow the site but it does not work.

I wonder if someone has experience the same situation and can shed some light.

Thank you,

I need a great WebHost for a site that will be using PHP and MySQL for a small project.  The site will be having users sign in, submit and edit forms.  They want to keep the history online, with frequent backups and good security.  

What a good company for professional hosting?


Thanks.

Hi Experts,

When browsing through https://www.aces-project.com/, at times its slow.

The hosting company says its not the server, but I'm using the Appointment theme in WordPress with minor adjustments.

I've used the same theme on https://www.atsinlaw.com/ and http://www.southerntime.ca/ with a lot more adjustments, and they are faster.

Acronis True Image 2019 just released!

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

Can't browse their own Internal website as their local domain name is the same address. I have a client with a Windows 2016 server that provides the DNS and their domain name is abc.com but when they try to access their external website abc.com they get a certificate error as the dns for www.abc.com points to their own internal server. I have changed the DNS so that it points to the external ip of the website but they now receive a security certificate error. I presume I need to add a dns entry for https://www.abc.com but can't see where to add this?

Hi, our site techgardens.com has been super slow, I had a whole other long question about that and it was decided that it was largely the hosting.

But we're still on the same host, and the boss has started to use pingdom to monitor the site. We keep getting site down reports, and mostly they are for the reason could not find redirect location.

Could anyone help me figure out where that error is coming from? Pingdom is not very informational.

I migrated my sisters website yesterday and for some reason the homepage is showing as hostpapa and not the actual homepage of the website which I have moved to hostgator

http://www.lindalouisehill.co.uk

However, I can login to the admin here - http://www.lindalouisehill.co.uk/wp-login.php

And I can go to all other individual pages such as this one - http://www.lindalouisehill.co.uk/about-linda

I am concerned this page has been lost completely as i've gone back into file manager and the hostpapa one is in every copy and backup I have but something does not make sense as I go to an old backup from March and its there too but the homepage has not been like that since March.

How can I script the "Request Filtering" in IIS 7.5?

I would like a way to ensure that the file extensions are all the same across all 4 of our IIS servers. The way I do this manually now is:
* Open IIS manager
* Select the site
* find the "Request Filtering" icon
* Click "open feature"

Once I am in the feature, I can remove extensions and add them. How can I create a script that will allow me to push these settings to all 4 of my web servers to make sure they stay the same across all servers all the time. I have attached a screen with the extensions screen I am speaking of. I have all the extensions in a text file. I just need a pointer to a good web article or powershell command that would allow me to manage this via script not GUI.

Thanks experts!

Hello everyone,

After 02 months, my ISP finally helped me with Reverse DNS / PTR records. Now when I test my email server on MXToolBox, it states the following error on MXToolBox:

1- Reverse DNS does not match SMTP Banner

My email client is also not able to login to the IMAP. Previously, the email client could login to both IMAP/SMTP and only email was being rejected due to no PTR record.

I believe the tech guys at ISP didn't enter it correctly. The domain is caretakers.pk

Any help would be highly appreciated!

Thanks and regards,

I have a small Wordpress web site currently running on a Linux VM using nginx.
I'd like to dump my HP Microserver that's running the Linux VM and replace it with a Synology NAS.

Hello,

I am running IIS 10 on Windows Server 2016.  I created a custom 404 error page called 404.asp and placed it in the root folder of the website.  This is my web.config file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
    <system.webServer>
        <staticContent>
            <clientCache cacheControlMode="UseMaxAge" cacheControlMaxAge="14.00:00:00" />
        </staticContent>
        <httpErrors>
            <remove statusCode="404" subStatusCode="-1" />
            <error statusCode="404" prefixLanguageFilePath="" path="/404.asp" responseMode="ExecuteURL" />
        </httpErrors>
    <rewrite>
      <rules>
        <rule name="HTTP to HTTPS redirect" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url="(.*)" />
          <conditions>
            <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" ignoreCase="true" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Redirect" redirectType="Permanent" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" />
        </rule>
      </rules>
    </rewrite>
    </system.webServer>
</configuration>


I thought that this was the correct way to implement the custom error page but the website just goes to the standard 404 error for IIS.  Any help diagnosing this would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

We dont know how to debug CRM and check every lines and process with that is it that is causing those problems.

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

Hi, Please help me to approach this project in the best way possible and can be done in the shortest time.


Create      PHP      classes      for      Student,      Program      and      Course      (plus      child      classes      as      described below).      All      of      these      classes      should      have:

(1)      Appropriate      overall      class      structure;      use      comments      to      identify      sections      and       elements      of      each      class.

(2)      Constructors      that      populate      object      properties,      either      directly      within      the      constructor      AND/OR      passed      to      the      method      when      an      object      is      created.

(3)      For      all      classes,      demonstrate      proper      encapsulation,      with      properties      and      methods made      public      ONLY      if      other      coders      need      direct      access      to      that      element,      and      only      if      the      element      can't      potentially      break      if      it      is      accessed      directly!

(4)      Student      class      should      have      a      property      of      'paid',      which      is      true      or      false;      student      objects      should      also      have      an      'enrolled'      (true/false)      property      and      an      enrol()      method;      the      method      first      checks      to      see      if      the      student      in      question has      paid,      then      only      enrols      him/her      in      a      program if      so.

(5)      Student      should      also      be      the      parent      of      GradStudent      and      Undergraduate      classes;      these      child      classes      should      differ      in      at      least      1-2      significant      ways      (e.g.,      GradStudent      has      an      advisor      property,      as      well      as      other      properties      and      methods,      that       Undergraduate      does      not      need).

(6)      Program      should      have      title      and      info      properties,      minimally;      neither      of      these      properties      should      be      editable,      only      returned      for      echoing      out.

The sites on the source server are located on the E;: yet the destination server only has a C:

Bankrupt Company's Data Resold on Craigslist

Heads up for any members who have ever purchased through NCIX. Looks like their server equipment was sold off without being scrubbed.
This is a good reminder about letting a third party store your credit card data.

They can sell the data to any company that continues the business (as a whole)  in one part.  (restart of business with new owners)...
(that is data that will still be used for what it was provided for.... ) Data is NOT provided for anything else then conducting business with THIS company.   (If EU customers are part of the data GDPR is important here, or even if non-EU citizens did business from the EU).
So there is no license on the data for a lot of different things.

The new  owner of the data ALSO inherrits this license/restriction on the data is not that  the data is free for all after it has been flogged off... (In legal theory...,  i am afraid it will be a free for all in practice).
