Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

When I type in Localhost in the web browser on a Server 2008 RS webserver, i get this message. I was attempting to install PHP  7.0. and was doing some testing of phpinfo.php file and it could not find it.   127.0.0.1  does not bring up a page either.

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;

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
# Default server configuration

server {
      listen 80 default_server;
      listen [::]:80 default_server;

# Set The Root Directory for the Entire Website

      root /var/www/html/;

      index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

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

What Is Transaction Monitoring and who needs it?

What Is Transaction Monitoring and who needs it?

Synthetic Transaction Monitoring that you need for the day to day, which ensures your business website keeps running optimally, and that there is no downtime to impact your customer experience.

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?

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?

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.

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?

Can anyone spot anything that might be stopping SSL from working. This my first time installing an SSL cert on a server.

        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html
SSLEngine on

We have a third-party application running in WebSphere on an on-premise VM. This application renders html through complied java classes which it then sends to the client browser. Is it possible to intercept this html at the server before it's sent to the client so we can hide elements from the user? The fields we wish to hide are relates to the bill to ban private employers from asking for salary history, which has been signed into law taking effect At the end of October.  We have no access to the source code, and this app is being decommissioned by Q1 2018. Is something like this possible, or does it require paying the vendor tens of thousands of dollars for a small customization?

Hello. I have installed WAMP on my windows 8.1 IIS machine.  I have it installed and working.  I can get it to listen on port 8080 b'c IIS is on port 80.  When I type localhost:8080 in my browser it takes me to the WAMP server page.  So I tried to add virtualhosts so that I can start working on my websites.   Before I added the virtual hosts I had to edit the httpd.config file and I added these lines:
Listen 0.0.0.0:8080
Listen [::0]:8080

I also added these lines to the httpd-vhosts.conf file:
<VirtualHost *:8080>
      ServerName localhost
      DocumentRoot c:/wamp64/www
      <Directory  "c:/wamp64/www/">
            Options +Indexes +Includes +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews
            AllowOverride All
            Require local
      </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

But when I click on the localhost under "Your VirtualHost" it goes to http://localhost/ and the IIS server page comes up.  

How can I get the virtual hosts to work on a windows machine so I can use WAMP instead of IIS?

My workplace has its own web server where we host one main site. We recently registered a domain name (via GoDaddy) for one of our properties and the site itself sits in a folder off our main site, like mysite.com\newsite. It's a Wordpress site so I don't want to move it to another folder.

What we want to do is make it so when people enter the URL for the new site, it points directly to that folder without showing our original site name. I know there's an option for URL forwarding w/ masking but doesn't that cause some issues with how links get shared inside the site, search engine crawling, and so on?

I currently have an A record pointing from GoDaddy to our site so when you enter the URL it just shows mysite.com\newsite but the people who set this up want it to have a totally separate identity. What are my options? Is this something I need to do on GoDaddy's site or can I setup something internally via IIS?

My server is being used as a spam relay - so I'm watching the inbound/outbound traffic right now.

A lot of it looks like:

tcp bay0-mc5-f.bay0.hotmail.com:smtp <-> server.myserver.com:57607

What exactly am I reading there? That bay0-mc5-f.bay0.hotmail.com is establishing an smtp connection with my server via port number 57607?

[Webinar] Learn How Hackers Steal Your Credentials

Do You Know How Hackers Steal Your Credentials? Join us and Skyport Systems to learn how hackers steal your credentials and why Active Directory must be secure to stop them. Thursday, July 13, 2017 10:00 A.M. PDT

How to use 2 separate DNS names.

in the scenario where we have Active Directory Domain name : MyCompany.local
All our servers will be joined to the domain as ServerX.MyCompany.local

Now, I believe reaching applications on those servers from inside should not be a problem.

The question is ,  on the Public DNS, if our registered name is different than the internal DNS Name, example

PubCompany.com, Then how do Users access the applications on the server when they try from inside and outside ?

Thank you

For some reason I need to reverse proxy to https://stream.twitter.com . I am running Nginx and have added following lines for reverse proxy:

    location / {
			proxy_read_timeout 6000;
			proxy_pass https://stream.twitter.com/;
			proxy_set_header HTTP_HOST $host:443;
			proxy_set_header x-forwarded-for $remote_addr;
                        proxy_set_header Authorization "Basic MYUSERNAME:PASSWORD_IN_BASE64";
		}

Open in new window

However when I access it through http://mydomain I only get a blank page. I checked but nothing is written in error.log .

Any help will be much appreciated.

My site was in need of upgrading a few things - WP core, WPML, WooCommerce, plugins - so I got my core up to date 4.7.3 and my plugins including WPML (but I left WooCommerce as it was).  At this point I did some basic testing, and all seemed OK, so I did a full backup using UpdraftPlus, which backs up everything including the database, to a remote Google Drive location.  I've used this method to do backups/restores in the past and it's been OK.  After this I went on to upgrade WooCommerce, which required a database update.  After this, I tested my WooCommerce shop and it was a disaster - all my products were missing.

I thought I'd leave this for another day so I went to restore the full backup that I has created earlier.  I did this from within wp-admin.  Midway through, the site just crashed with a HTTP 500 error - front end and back.  Fearing the worst, I went to my Google Drive, manually downloaded the zip files, extracted, then uploaded core and the plugins folder using FTP.  After this I got "Error establishing a database connection" on the front-end, and "Can't select database" on the back-end.

The site is http://recordiaublinc.com, and the back-end is http://recordiaublinc.com/wp-admin - please see message in wp-admin for a fuller description.

To try to solve this I've logged into the phpMyAdmin, and restored the DB backup that I have over the current one.  No change.  Also I've tried renaming the current one, creating a new blank one, then diong the import, …

Hello All;

In Visual Studio, I have NewtonSoft added to the "NuGet"
The "Bin" folder has all required resources.
I have these in the top.

Imports Newtonsoft.Json.Linq
Imports Newtonsoft.Json

Open in new window


Running the project from VS, it works great.
Running the project from its web folder gives the error.

Compiler Error Message: BC30451: 'Newtonsoft' is not declared. It may be inaccessible due to its protection level.

On this line.
Dim playList = Newtonsoft.Json.JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(Of VidList)(jsonString)

Open in new window


What else do I need to do, in order to run the NewtonSoft components outside of VS?

Thanks.
