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.

Hi Experts,

I just created a little application in PHP and MySQL, and on my localhost it is very quick, but when I upload it to my VPS at http://crm-cor.aces-project.com/ it is very slow, even the login page.

There is not that much activity on this server, and I have other applications on there that are fast, but can anyone tell what it could be? Both my localhost and VPS are IIS.

This is a test copy, so the credentials are :

aleks@aces-project.com
testing


As well, I am using Google API, which I installed on my localhost with Composer, but on the VPS. I just uploaded it for now. Could that be it?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

We currently have a fairly simple set up, we have ONE public Web Server IP.   Our In/Out path is ISP line to our Cisco ASA/Firewall to our Host Server.    We use Static IPs from the ISP.   Our objective is to achieve highly reliable access to our Web server.  

We are looking at solution such as DNSMadeEasy + DNS Failover.  

Would the following plan work?
1) We'll acquire a new ISP #2 service as backup for our ISP #1 service.
2) We'll acquire a new Switch. On site our location we'll plug the two lines from ISP #1 and ISP #2 into the new Switch.
3) Run a single line from this new switch into our existing CISCO ASA router, and add configuration rules to Cisco for the new source IP addresses to mirror the rules already there for NAT, port forwarding, etc.

Any recommendations would be appreciated!

Hi Experts,

Likely this is a Windows issue, but I am posting under PHP just in case.

I'm trying to use PHP to upload files to  the server.  I'm developing, so the server and the client, are actually the same Win 7 x64 PC with IIS.

Once I upload the files using the following script they get locked in the target directory.
        global $PATH_TO_ROOT;
        $attach_dir = $PATH_TO_ROOT . 'attachments/';
        $client_dir = $attach_dir . 'client-' . $client_id;
        
        //Check if client directory exists
        if (!is_dir($client_dir)){ 
            mkdir($client_dir);
            copy($attach_dir . 'client-0/index.php', $client_dir . '/index.php');  //Security-purposes
        }
        
        //Check if Progress Directory exists
        $progress_dir = $client_dir . '/prog-' . $progress_id;
        if (!is_dir($progress_dir)){ 
            mkdir($progress_dir);
            copy($attach_dir . 'client-0/index.php', $progress_dir . '/index.php');  //Security-purposes
        }
        
        //Upload file
        $temp_file = $_FILES['file']['tmp_name'][$file_no];
        $file = str_replace(' ', '_', $file);
        $dest = $progress_dir . '/' . $file;
        move_uploaded_file($temp_file, $dest);

Open in new window


By locked, I mean that I get access denied both when using <a href=".../myfile.txt">and by trying to opening through the File Explorer. The only way to unlock them is by going into Safe Mode as explained here.

I dont think this is my code, but rather my settings in Windows, but I have posted this under both topics. I am also thinking that the IIS_IUSRS is probably doing upload and maybe that is locking it, but it does have full permissions to the root directory.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

I am having a serious problem hosting websites based on Redhat or Centos on Hyper-V.  While on physical server that is not the case even when the CPU and memory is much less than what is been allocated for on Hyper-V.

30 - 50 user's try to access a page to upload document or login, the server gets hanged completely.  sometime we have to force restart because we cannot even login to reboot the server.  but that is not the case with physical server even when the memory and CPU is half of what is been used on Hyper-V.

One of the issues I am facing on Hyper-V is the memory releases, which keeps increasing and never get release unless I use a run /bin/sync; /bin/echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches on crontab to release the memory or force restart the server.

I am getting to a point to move all my web onto physical machine due to that problem.  can you please help me resolve that problem.  Is the fix from the Windows, Linux or Apache?

I am trying to install multiple mediawiki farm sharing same resources (4 in total), exactly like Wikisource.org, on Amazon Web Services EC2. This installation will consist of the main wiki in English (wikiexample.org), two languages sub domains (lang1.wikiexample.org, lang2.wikiexample.org) and a commons hosting their media files (commons.wikiexample.org).

The wikis will have the extensions of Wikisource like ProofreadPage, PDF handler, Djvu extension and the Translate extension.

It should be possible to maintain and upgrade the entire wikis centrally and not one at a time.

Can anyone please put me through how to go about this?

Thank you.

Hi Experts,

If I have a file at
www.domain.com/downloads/myfile.xlsx

which is at
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\domain.com/downloads/myfile.xlsx

My question is, from  domain.com/mod/index.php, how would I write my <a> tag to engage download?

I have <a href="../downloads/myfile.xlsx" target="_blank">, but I am getting Permission Denied.

Thank you

Edit: This may be a Windows Question.

Two Windows domains

Website site located in 2nd domain. This is an "internal" site and is not accessible outside of our network connection via VPN tunnel

We are unable to access site in 2nd domain unless we utilize IP address of the web server.

Should I be looking at DNS forward lookup zone? Should I be making changes to local user HOST file?

My server load averages are going way high and too many processes are being consumed. Is it a DDoS attack or something wrong with the server?

Hi experts.

I made this website  

It works fine in Denmark, but they cannot access the website in India.
Im trying to troubleshoot on this.

Can you help me? Can you access the website, and which country are you in while doing so?
What could i do to make it work?

Should i just change to .com? How, why can i know if India is blocking .dk domains?

:S

Best regards

I have a set of HTML files as an output from Project Analyzer (it documents my VBA projects into a navigatable set of web pages). I'd like to put it on my web server - but if I do my entire code will be open to anyone. So I'd like to restrict access to ONLY if accessed from my WordPress site where I can include a token/URL parameter.

It's not practical to modify/put_anything in the 1,000s of web pages produced by Project Analyzer. Hence the need to limit access globally.

Is this possible? If so I'd be interested in any ideas.

Thanks

I'm about to decommission an old Exchange 2003 Server and was going through the logs.
In the IIS logs, I found suspicious activity that appears to be port scanning.  

Can any one shed some light on this?  
Should I be taking any precautions before decommissioning this server (which needs to be online when doing so, although I disconnected it from the network at the moment)?

Hi,
  I have CFM page that used to work just fine, but recently it is generating an error like this:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Invalid CFML construct found on line 28 at column 189.
ColdFusion was looking at the following text:  /"

The CFML compiler was processing:

An expression that began on line 28, column 179.
The expression might be missing an ending #, for example, #expr instead of #expr#.
The body of a CFMAIL tag beginning on line 20, column 10.

  Here is the statement that is failing.

Hi.

I have installed WAMP server to act as my local host. I felt the install worked correctly and I was able to launch php files on my local host. I was also able to go into the MyPhp Admin section on WAMP at my localhost and look at databases etc.

However, I had been trying to use the windows cmd (dos) box to see what version of mysql I had running which I couldn't do. I carried out some searches on the internet and I'm now wondering if my WAMP has only installed partially, as I seem to be missing some functionality (I think).

When I left click on the WAMP icon in my tray icon (it is green and running) I get the following menu displayed:

My Wamp Menu
However, looking online, people seem to be getting something more like this...

otherwampdisplays.png
I have version 3.1 which is fairly new and I didn't interrupt the install. Is there something obvious I'm not getting? I do have an SQL folder when  I install wamp - located here : C:\wamp64\bin\mysql\mysql5.7.19

I wanted to create tables and databases through the command prompt, either through the windows command prompt or the mysql command prompt which I thought might be contained within WAMP. But can't seem to do either.

Any help on what's not right would be great.

Many thanks,

Adam

An older website has address site.com, but now we need the address site.net to point to site.com as well. I understand we need to create a dummy web in IIS for site.net, and on Properties of the dummy web, tab Documents, one can choose to redirect to site.com. However, I'd still need to figure some issues as follows:

1. Is the dummy site a must? (can such redirection be done without the dummy site - IIS only)
2. Properties for the dummy site in IIS don't make much sense - one should just leave the defaults?
3. In this case above one should choose "Permanent redirection" I guess. Then a user going to "site.net" will actually get to the default page of site.com. But what happens if a user tries to get to "site.net/page2.html"? Where page2.html is a page in the root folder of site.com.

I have installed ssl certificates on WebServers using IIS since 6.0 and I need to install one on a server now before going live and although users type a URL into a browser to access the webpage and sign in to perform several types of financial transactions,  The first thing I looked for was the inet pub folder and there was none.  Needless to say there was no IIS of any version and no CSR to submit and no self installation application to install the cert for me.
Now I'm not sure whether or not the ssl certs I use for our web servers are used for this type of application server and I have no clue as how to go about installing an SSL cert without IIS.  Testing is starting and so far I find that  I can't connect with the reason returned being there is no Cert installed in the Root CA Authority store. Can anyone shed some light on this subject for me or at least point me in the right direction so I can get this server secure before going live with it.      Any tips on what the dfferences are between this type of app server and a web server and how to install them on servers without IIS.  Thanks.

Hello Experts,

I am testing BGInfo with some of our servers. We will deploy it via GPO.

We have web servers having multiple IP Address. In BGInfo (or with a WMI query) is there a way to only show 1 IP address and not all IP addresses?

The problem is if we show all the IP Addresses of our webservers, the BGInfo information will be shifted (see example in attachment).

Thanks

Currently I have a dedicated an exsi 5.5 host at hostway running 2 web servers, just recently these 2 servers started to crash with a blue screen and reboot, after some dump analysis and extensive troubleshooting I've found out that these servers only crashes when they are connected to the network, if I disconnect the image from the network they stay stable. I wanted to check with someone here if anyone here has had similar issues and if I need to be looking at the server NIC as a possible cause? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Dear Experts, please help to solve our scenario:
- Normally, we use google public DNS (8.8.8.8) for our LAN users, then they can go to our website (let's say in IP: A.B.C.D - www.website.com) properly

- When we change the DNS of LAN users to our local DNS (the same domain - website.com), they could not go to that website anymore although I specified its DNS record (www) in the DNS server.

Do you have any idea please?

We have a server environment consisting of a load balance (hardware), 3 web servers and a single database server.  Against the environment we have run 3 load tests, scaling up to 600 concurrent users over a 20 minute period.  On each test the response time for the page load begins to degrade at exactly the same point, when the number of concurrent users hits 100.  

Test one was done with two web servers balanced
Test two was done with three web servers balanced
Test three was done with three web servers balanced but with +2 cpu allocated

All three tests have exactly the same result.  I have had the hosting provider for the infrastructure review the network and none of the hardware elements in the route have restrictions or limits on users and the network is handling the load with ease.  The individual web servers are also handling the load, even at peak evenly and without maxing out CPU or memory. Its seems highly irregular that the drop-off point remains identical despite the increase in resource and has lead me to question whether there is a configuration or set-up default value which is reaching its limit (100) within the system.

This is a theory but it posing a major challenge to what should be a robust server set-up and I would appreciate some expert opinion on what could be causing the issue.  In preparation I have already ensured I have New Relic APM data available for all three sessions as well as general hardware monitoring data.
