I am having little difficulty in resolving one URL redirection in remote location. Example: My website is https://temp.company.local/dev/rel and it's accessible through Remote host. However, when user requests for https://temp.company.local, he is getting redirected to Apache manager page which I don't want. Can you please provide a solution to fix this problem so that only proper URL will work and half will not redirect to tomcat manager page?
Just to update I'm not using IIS.

Best Regards,

Short question that requires a lengthy answer....   For security reasons -- Should we host our website on a linux box or Windows?    Ultimately it will have to share data with our MS SQL server.   Also looking for someone reasonably priced but excellent web developer.... (do those go hand-in-hand?)

Hi,

I've spent a few weeks messing around with nginx to get to grips with it before I migrate my Wordpress site, (currently on Apache).

One thing can't work out is, In Apache I have a rewrite (in .htaccess) that redirects any request for

http://www.mysite.com/KB/Article/000001.htm
to
http://www.mysite.com/KB/Article/000001

It's because the site was originally written in flat html and theres thousands of links going to the old URLs.

In Apache this did the trick
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^KB/Article/(.*).htm  http://www.mysite.com/KB/Article/$1 [L]
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

How Do I do the same thing in nginx? I'm assuming I add the redirect to my
/etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default
File, as that the one the test site is using;

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

i was trying to track a package thru DHL, and dhl gave me their site as : http://www.dhl-usa.com; but the shipper gave me as :  http://dhlcomp.cf/
In the 2nd site which is an exact replica of the original, the tracking number shows up.  DHL customer service also confirms that there is no such tracking number.
My question is, how come the regulators do not shut down the 2nd site, etc.

Currently I have 1 IP on an IIS web server. I need to add in 3 more website and each website must be reachable on http and https

Should I

1. add in 3 extra IP address. Bind each site to an IP on port 80 and port 443. In DNS add in hostname for each site with the appropriate IP address

2. stay with 1 IP address, use host headers for each site

I have 1 website with 1 IP in IIS using both port 80 and port 443. I own 2 wild card certs, one for the external address (@mycompany.com) and one of the internal address (@inside.mycompany.com)

Current SSL certificate that's tied to port 443 is using the external Cert. And the website is reachable external via SSL without issues.
Internally we can reach the website using http on port 80 with the FQDN and that works fine

Management wants SSL applied to the internal web site instead of using http. One method I thought of was to add an additional IP to the website. In Local DNS add a new host name pointed to that IP. Bind the internal Cert to the IP on Port 443. Everyone goes to the website using the new FQDN. To get to the internal Site they using the new FQDN. The concern I have with this approach is that the server still has 2 IP's and local DNS will reflect that. If anything anywhere references the FQDN of the server they could end up getting an error or the wrong item displayed. I

what other options are there?

I do NOT want my users redirected to mobile.htm, but just left alone regardless of browser.  On a smart phone even when they type out index.htm, they still get redirected to a broken link.  I am on tomcat nix server.

I have 2 domains. Domain A and Domain B.
Domain A has 2 websites on single server.
Domain A is going away and the web sites will be moved to a server in Domain B.

Problem is, that web master does not have time to reconfigure all the domain information in the existing code & config files to reflect the new server names. The systems cannot go down for the time being. Will something like this work?

  • transfer the Domain A's DNS zone information over to Domain B - this way the A.com domain record still exists
  • Going into the newly transfer DNS records and change the IP of the 2 website to point their new IP's in the B domain

anyone typing Server1.A.com in a browser will get resolution from the DNS server in Domain B which will then return the IP of the new website in Domain B.

for example http://xldynamic.com/robots.txt
returns this and google tells me i cannot search in this website, becuase its robot disallows it.

Page cannot be displayed due to robots.txt

i need to understand what is this and why a web developer would activate such thing.

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

some websites, change their links and then they forget to update the broken links.

for example the link in this page http://www.xldynamic.com/source/xld.XtraTime.html  refers to http://xldynamic.com/cgi-bin/counters/unicounter.pl?name=xld.XtraTime.dl&cache=0&deliver=http://www.xldynamic.com/downloads/xld.XtraTime.zip

which does not work and if i remove the some part of the link and only leave http://www.xldynamic.com/downloads/xld.XtraTime.zip

it will work and will download.

i was wondering if there is a easy way to find the list of all publicly available download links for a website.

i used to work with www.websitename.com/index.html long time ago, but that does not work anymore.

any idea how to get the list of download links for a website?

Hi Experts,

We have a NLB cluster of three web servers in an environment of three nodes in a Hyper-V cluster with a shared SAN storage. The website URL points to the NLB cluster IP address. When we use Move/Live Migrate to move the web server(s) to a different node, the web site becomes down.

At the same time, each individual of the three web servers are just fine -- all three servers are up and running, and all are pingable. And if logging into each individual server and trying to access the website using URL from there, the website is accessible. Apparently the website only becomes down while accessing via NLB upon the Life Migrate of the server(s) to a different node occurs.

It is frustrating and mysterious. Do you know what could be wrong?

I have a 2008R2 proxy server running URL redirects for 4 different sites in a DMZ.  One of the internal web servers was recently updated and the vendor has said that we need to use TLS 1.2.  I've gone through the protocol registry edits to enable TLS 1.2, but when running WireShark the Client Hello SSL shows TLS 1.0 still in use?

If I load the webpage directly from the proxy server it shows that TLSv1.2 is being used and the site pulls up properly.  It is just when redirecting the pages via IIS for users outside of the facility does TLSv1.0 show and we receive the 502 website error.

Any more suggestions?

I have a virtual machine running apache webserver...  In my Lan I am able to type http://192.168.xxx.xxx/hydrometdb/public/user/login and get a login page as seen in the attached image.

I also had this port forward(port 80) with a public ip using a linksys router as was able to get to the same web page remotely- Public
http://200.32.xxx.xxx/hydrometdb/public/user/login

Problem:
After replacing the linksys with sonicwall nsa250m Cannot access the site remotely.  I ran the public server wizard but still does not work.

Any assistance appreciated.

Thank you!

We have a hosting stating that we have reached our files limits within the hosting.  We ran FileZilla and from root folder and the total files is not even 1% (see  below).

ftplimit
We thought maybe the hosting has "temp" areas or folders, like in Windows where one deletes its contents and free up space.  Nevertheless,  maybe we didn't correctly  used FileZilla to determine how many files are in our hosting.  

That said,
  • does FileZilla really searches the root of our hosting?
  • did we use FileZilla correctly to search for total files?
  • is there another apps we can try to determine the total of files our hosting has?
