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 Experts,

We have a web system running from a Windows 2012 R2 server.  The server has 128GB RAM and 2 x 16 core xeon processors.

I am a network administrator but my in depth knowledge of fine configuration of IIS is limited.

We use PHP 5.6 and have about 300 customers logging into the system and updating records.  At least once a week, the website goes down and is only brought back online after a command prompt 'iisreset' action is performed.  The developers are currently testing the system with PHP 7.1 before we switch over from 5.6.  The errors in the Event Viewer do not correspond to the website crash

My question is, are there more settings i need to change in IIS to make the website run better, application pool failover, etc

Any guidance is appreciated

Kind Regards

Andy

Any suggestions?

I have a project assigned that I need to do performance load test.
The setup consists of one load balancer, 8 web servers, 1 SQL DB server, 1 File server and 1 video server
Users log in to Web based application using sql logins and they access resources such as files, videos.

I need to do performance testing for server loads in term of SQL connecitons, files and video access through web.
Let's say I would like to know how many maximum users file access/sql connections server can handle. (need to test for thousands of users access/connections to find out maximum)

Please advise how we can do above ? Is there any application that can do above ?

Many Thanks

We have a pfSense 2.3.4 with LAN, WAN, DMZ.
In DMZ subnet, we set up a Network Load Balancing cluster with two web servers in a 2012R2 Hyper-V environment. Their IP are:
DMZ port: 10.10.2.1
Server1:     10.10.2.21
Server2:     10.10.2.22
NLB Cluster: 10.10.2.100
NLB mode: multicast

Inside the DMZ subnet, each host can ping other hosts without a problem. The only stumbling block is, from pfSense, I can NOT ping the NLB cluster even I am able to ping all other servers in DMZ subnet. As the result, the cluster is useless.

In pfSense, I can see there is no ARP table entry for this cluster IP. How come?

I bet the Hyper-V NLB cluster is not new and am wondering if anyone ran into this issue before. Please help.

Hello,

I've been manually creating accounts in my WHM installation by using the functionality that's native to the program (i.e. I click create account, type in a domain, username, password, and select a package) to create an account for that user that has it's own cPanel installation.

I'm wondering if there's a way (either through software, api, or script) to do this in bulk? Any guidance someone can give would be greatly appreciated. If the answer is via script or api, I would appreciate any general direction you could give about how I actually would go about using it. Thanks in advance!

We are looking for a self-hosting alternative just like "WeTransfer"


If it could run on a linux server it would be great. (Windows Server is also OK)

We would like the service to be hosted at our servers, because there could be some critical data between.


The thought was :

Enter the URL
"Press here to upload a file"
Upload
Now it generates an unique URL, the costumer can send out via an email.


I Found this http://alternativeto.net/software/wetransfer/?platform=self-hosted
But would like to hear something you could have any experience with.

We are willing to pay for the software, but open source would be great too.

Hi guys,

I'm trying to utilize a PAC file hosted on one of our web servers to whitelist only specific websites.  The PAC file works, however, it's blocking some of the pages and not displaying the sites correctly.  Here's an example entry.

Function FindProxyForURL(url, host) {

if (shExpMatch(url, "*.happyclicks.net*")) return "DIRECT";
if (shExpMatch(url, "*.seussville.com*")) return "DIRECT";
if (shExpMatch(url, "*.picassohead.com*")) return "DIRECT";
if (shExpMatch(url, "*.pbskids.org*")) return "DIRECT";
if (shExpMatch(url, "*.mylanguages.org*")) return "DIRECT";
if (shExpMatch(url, "*.brainpop.com*")) return "DIRECT";

return "127.0.0.1";
 
}

Can anyone offer any assistance in allowing all the entire site through so this could function?

Thanks,

Nico

Hi Team,

I just recently created a fail-over cluster for SQL, I will now like to create the same scenario for our web servers. The primary reason for doing this is for Disaster Recovery between 2 sites. These 2 web servers will be located across two sites and ideally switch over automatically if there's an issue with the active site.
I have some experience with IIS but not with a web farm or IIS clustering.
Is this possible to do with windows server 2016 build in features and IIS or would I need some type of hardware loadbalancer?
I must also say that these 2 sites don't share storage or have storage replication.

Thank you

Hi All,

I am reasonably au fait with computers and IT in general, but not so much with web servers.

I have been given a zip file backup of our website by the developer, and I would like to set it up on my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS machine so that I can 'have a play' (this won't go back into production or be exposed to the internet - it is just that I am interested).

I have setup Apache2, MySQL, PHP, and PHPMyAdmin on my machine, and it is all (seemingly) working fine with my 'Hello World' (index.php) sitting in /var/www/html/.

However, I don't know where to go from here, and I am not really sure if I am asking the question in the right place!

Not sure if it helps, but the root of the zip files contains this (ls -la):

drwxrwxrwx 1 root root   2408 Aug  1 15:18 .
drwxrwxrwx 1 root root  12288 Aug  1 15:18 ..
drwxrwxrwx 1 root root      0 Mar  8 10:57 app
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root   1646 Mar  8 10:57 artisan
drwxrwxrwx 1 root root      0 Mar  8 10:57 bootstrap
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root   1548 Mar  8 10:57 composer.json
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 151002 Mar  8 10:57 composer.lock
drwxrwxrwx 1 root root      0 Mar  8 10:57 config

We are still using Tomcat 6.0 and plan to move to latest version by next year. Problem with current version is to set the access deny to our web-application.

I tried adding valve with webapps/META-INF/context.xml file as below but nothing works. Can you please provide a fix.

<Context antiJARLocking="true" path="/">
<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteIpValve" />
<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve" allow="{IP_address}" />
</Context>

Or

<Context antiResourceLocking="false" privileged="true">
    <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve" allow="127\.0\.0\.1,8\.8\.4\..*"/>
</Context>

Hello Team,

I am new to F5. I need help on F5 rules for my requirement. I was able to accomplish the same using nginx. Below is my ngnix configuration which works good.

server {
    listen       80 default_server;
    listen       [::]:80 default_server;
    server_name  wiki.mydomain.com;
    root         /usr/share/nginx/html;

    # Load configuration files for the default server block.
    include /etc/nginx/default.d/*.conf;

    location / {
	set $backend "http://172.16.222.161:8090";
        proxy_pass $backend;
        proxy_redirect http://172.16.222.161:8090 $scheme://$host/;
	client_max_body_size 100m;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    }

   location /synchrony {
        set $backend "http://172.16.222.161:8091";
        proxy_pass $backend;
        proxy_redirect http://172.16.222.161:8091 $scheme://$host/;
	proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
        proxy_set_header Connection "Upgrade";
    }}

Open in new window


I'm specifically looking at irules for location / and location /synchrony. There are two services running on the same server one is on 8090 and another on 8091. If the incoming HTTP request contains /synchrony then it should proxy redirect them to same backend server on port 8091 and everything else should go to the same backend server on port 8090.

Currently, I setup vserver and accessing wiki.mydomain.com is going to backend on port 8090 (http://172.16.222.161:8090).

I will need help on accomplish the above task.

Thanks for advance help.

Thanks

Good morning All

I have a developer who wants to run a powershell script to check IIS web server configurations and changes including registry, and also use the script to configure new IIS web servers so that they will all be identical.  Is running a PS script a good way to do this or is he re-inventing the wheel?  Is there a product that will do this is a more secure / controlled fashion?

Many thanks

We are looking to upgrade our coldfusion server (v 6.1) running server (2003) to a new server (server 2012) and ColdFusion 2016.

Looking for a solution/upgrade path.. If I need to upgrade first to a lower version.

If its not semi simple then possibly moving to another dev language.

Thanks in advance!
