Hi, I have a problem with my website(dealclik.us) pinging and loading webpages, this website is loading properly but except for one customer it is redirecting to xyz.xyz

I have talked to hosting providers, they are not able to fix this as they could not see any problem with the website. Please help me in fixing this. I asked that particular customer to restart their router, they have a static IP, they restarted the router but the issue is not fixed, how to fix this? please help!!

Thanks in advance.

I have set up a php mailer application which sends out emails to clients for payment as a weblink in the body of the email

When they click on the link the following url is accessed (the InvNo will obviously change depending on the client):
http://ticktockit.dyndns.biz:888/ticktock_int/results_invoices_IDSel_Client.php?invNo=295

How can I send this url as an encrypted url  or as a url which is not visible?
Is https the only way?

I have a web site on my IIS server, which was accessible on the LAN.  I have two initial goals:  
1)  put the IIS server in a DMZ
2) configure the router so that the web site is accessible from the outside world

I moved the IIS server from the LAN port on my router to the DMZ port.  The router initially had firewall rules allowing access to the DMZ for all traffic from Any to Any.  I created a rule that denies access to the DMZ for all traffic from Any to Any, and then created a rule that allows access to the DMZ for HTTP requests from Any to Any.

I then created a port forwarding rule to forward HTTP/ port 80 to the internal IP address of the server.

I still can't access the web site externally.  And I can't access or ping the server from the LAN.
Ideas on what I need to change here?

I was looking at WordPress. Never used WordPress before. Looking at the Business plan. Is the plan $24.92/monthly or 1 payment of $24.92 for 1 year?

I would like to create a blog Unlimited Storage Space to add videos etc. Kind of like worldstarhiphop

Is there a FREE service somewhere else that supports Unlimited Storage Space? Is there a WordPress alternative that has the features of the Business plan that's free?

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,

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/;

# Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP

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

# Add The Server IP Address or FQDN

      server_name 123.123.123.123;

# The following does the WorkPress Rewrites for the permalinks
      
      location / {
        index index.php index.html index.htm;
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;

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

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.

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

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?

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?

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

<VirtualHost *:443>
        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html

        <Directory /var/www/html/>
            Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
            AllowOverride All
            Require all granted
        </Directory>

        ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
        CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

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?
