  • Tecnhical Changes For HostNexus Clients | Cloud Hosting | Cloud Servers from AtomicVPS
    possible because I knew this change would ruffle the most feathers Plesk 9 5 was just an enhanced Plesk 8 but everything that came after was basically a different control panel Plesk 10 was released in 2010 and Plesk 11 kept the same structure and Plesk 11 5 is a smoother version of Plesk actually a big improvement I wrote a post about some of the changes between 9 5 and 11 5 but to be honest there are too many to document However the layout should be pretty intuitive and everything is now easy to find You can read about some of the changes between Plesk 11 and Plesk 11 5 No FrontPage Support FrontPage has been EOL End Of Life since 2006 but we still have a few clients using it FrontPage Extensions are not included in Plesk 11 5 and cannot be installed or recovered All HN clients have been notified that if they use and need FrontPage they will be moved to one of our cPanel servers It looks like cPanel will be supporting FrontPage as a custom module for the forseeable future Changes to PHP On the CloudLinux powered Plesk 11 5 clients have full control over their PHP environment There are two areas to make PHP settings change the one default to Plesk and the one provided by the PHP Selector from CloudLinux Please see this post for an in depth explanation on how PHP behaves on Plesk 11 5 Users can now change their PHP version and activate their own PHP extensions Enforcing Secure FTP Battling malware is a big part of our job and this job is made harder by website hacks that come from virus infecting a user s PC that connects to FTP There is no sane or logical reason to send FTP access credentials to the server in plain text so they can be sniffed out and exploited so we are cutting out this common source of malware by simply enforcing all users to use FTP over SSL No Default SquirrelMail Plesk 11 5 comes with Horde AtMail and Roundcube We ve always done a custom install of SquirrelMail but this is not possible in Plesk 11 5 However SquirrelMail users can still use and enjoy their favourite webmail application by simply installing it themselves MariaDB This is an invisible change for all users but we ve replaced the standard MySQL server with the enhanced MariaDB database server MariaDB is open source and a lot faster than MySQL As server administrators moving to MariaDB is a big deal considering some of the changes we are seeing to MySQL since it was acquired by Oracle Neither Plesk nor cPanel officially support it but we know how to make it work so use it and love it New Backup System All Atomic servers use the Idera formerly R1Soft backup system This is a really great backup system with more backup options and faster restore times Idera also integrates with cPanel and

  • Big Changes in Plesk 11.5 | Cloud Hosting | Cloud Servers from AtomicVPS
    1 is Web Hosting Access and this is where you change the main FTP login for the domain and the IP if you have dedicated IPs assigned The link labelled 2 is Hosting Settings and this is where you can change the domain name specify www or non www activate SSL and PHP and all those other things that used to be listed under Web Hosting Settings in Plesk 9 5 Before I get too deep into this I should explain some fundamental changes in Plesk s terminology and how it handles domain hosting Multiple Domains On Plesk 9 5 we could set up a Client and specify how many domains they could host and leave it up to the client to create their domains and configure hosting In Plesk 11 5 a domain that has its own control panel access is called a Subscription Even if your plan allows you to host multiple domains anyone on the Customer level will not be able to create new Subscriptions If you have multiple domains Subscriptions you ll be seeing the control panel for the domain listed at the top of Plesk To toggle to a different Domain click on the down arrow next to your domain name Add On Domains Plesk s main multiple domain feature is now handled by Add On Domains Add On Domains live within the directory structure of the main domain When you click Add New Domain in Plesk you will be creating an Add On Domain and will specify the directory in which the domain s contents will reside So in this case I specified the Document Root as testdomain1 And if we take a look at the File Manager we will see it has been created If clients would like a domain set up as

  • Layout Changes Between Plesk 11 and 11.5 | Cloud Hosting | Cloud Servers from AtomicVPS
    change There are two view options for Websites Domains which can be toggled under the wrench icon on the right The old view from Plesk 11 is called the Classic List And the new view in Plesk 11 5 is called the Active List It s a big improvement This is the old Classic List layout Even though I got used to it I was was never completely happy with the logic of the layout It made no sense to have to click on the domain name at the bottom of Websites Domains to access more Hosting Settings This layout came from Plesk 10 so it s been around for a while and a common question I saw was Where are the Hosting Settings meaning activating PHP changing a domain s name activating SSL etc And all those small icons on the right just not user friendly So here is the new Active List view Hosting Settings is easy to see Icons now have text so everything is available on the one page No more having to click around wondering where something is It s a small but very effective change One Response Andre Martensen says December 18 2013 at

  • Installing SquirrelMail on Plesk 11.5 | Cloud Hosting | Cloud Servers from AtomicVPS
    and luckily that solution is very easy You can install SquirrelMail via the Application Vault so simply click on Application at the top and then select All Available Applications and do a search for SquirrelMail Click the down arrow next to Install and select the Custom option Check the box to accept the License agreement and click next Select the location to install If you want to install in the root of a domain just leave the directory field blank There are more settings under Show All Settings but I recommend you leave them as all default And that is all there is to it Very simple Depending on your PHP Settings you might see an install error such as this If this happens during your install just look at the error and then go back to Websites Domains PHP Settings and disable enable as required NOTE This is the PHP Settings page that is default in Plesk not the PHP Settings under PHP Selector After you have completed the install load in your browser and you should see the default login page Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website

  • Understanding PHP Settings on Plesk 11.5 | Cloud Hosting | Cloud Servers from AtomicVPS
    Done A quick note and one caveat about the Plesk PHP Settings page listed as 2 above su list icon icon paperclip icon color 7BC04E This will always list the PHP version installed as default even if you change it in PHP Selector If you run PHP as Apache this is the only place to edit PHP settings If you ever receive an error while installing an app in the Application Vault this is where you enable disable the function listed in the error This is because Plesk s Application Vault will read a domain s PHP settings from here even if you are using PHP in the PHP Selector su list CloudLinux PHP Selector Alright and on to the fun part the CloudLinux PHP Selector At first glance this might be set to native Native is what we set as default for PHP which as of writing this blog post if PHP 5 3 However if you want to edit settings and activate extensions and binaries just set to 5 3 or your preferred PHP version and all the extensions will appear Remember those days when you had to ask us if we could activate a certain PHP extension Those days are gone Are you need to do is select the extensions you need and hit Save Couldn t be simpler And we don t have to custom recompile PHP every time a client wants an extension so wins all around And all the settings like register globals safe mode magic quotes etc are all under the PHP Settings tab Just select your desired settings and enjoy If you find that the PHP Selector is not working for you please contact support and we will fix it To use the PHP Selector a domain needs to have these 3

  • Enforcing Encrypted FTP Sessions | Cloud Hosting | Cloud Servers from AtomicVPS
    is force all domains to use PHP 5 4 which would render outdated applications unusable and force clients to upgrade Unfortunately we would lose most of our client base if we did that so what we can do is eliminate all other causes of malware thus absolving ourselves from direct responsibility of a malware attack Point 2 is the bread and butter of a web hosting service If an apache version becomes vulnerable we upgrade If an exploit is found in the OS we patch it If a software version becomes EOL we update it As long as software vendors are quick to patch we are totally covered here Malware exploits via FTP are very very common now This malware started appearing in 2009 with the infamous Gumblar virus and I wrote about that extensively on the HN blog Stamping this out is easy and effective immediately all AtomicVPS servers will enforse Secure FTP connections and not allow anyone to connect to FTP with the standard non SSL protocol Non SSL connections send the username and password to the server in plain text which is how Gumblar and its variants obtain FTP server information By enforcing FTP over SSL your FTP credentials are encrypted when sent to the server so these virus can t sniff out your information Connecting via SSL is very simple and all FTP software have the option So all you need to do is find the option in your FTP program to connect via FTP over SSL Often it is called TLS Explicit There are often a few options for Secure FTP connections like SFTP and TLS Implicit but it is TLS Explicit that you want In the popular FileZilla client you can simply connect to your FTP Server using ftpes domain com Under the FileZilla

  • How To Avoid Email Blacklisting Problems | Cloud Hosting | Cloud Servers from AtomicVPS
    the SOA Record and the TTL is already 300 seconds or very low then you are good to go on changing the IPs So this is the scenario 172 245 29 238 has been blacklisted and the Reseller has decided that they wish to use 198 144 188 156 for all their domains Because in Plesk you can host multiple domains on Dedicated IPs So the Reseller navigates to note note color 97A556 Client testdoamin2 com Websites Domains Web Hosting Access note But take a look dedicated IP 198 144 188 156 is not avaialble in the drop down selection only the free IP 198 144 188 157 This is because even though there is no IP Pool section for a Customer this IP Pool does exist And when testdomain1 com was created under Client 1 with IP 198 144 188 156 that IP went into the Customer s IP POol and dedicated IPs cannot be shared amongst Customers To prove the point lets go to create a new subscription under Client 1 As you can see 198 144 188 156 is available to Client 1 but not to Client 2 So as a Reseller what this means is that if you want to use one of your dedicated IPs for all your domains all those domains need to be under the same client The easiest way to achieve this is to simply move all your domains Subscription under your root account However before you do this you will need to free up the IP that you want to use as the main IP for all your domains If you remember testdomain1 com is on 198 144 188 156 so in this case I go note note color 97A556 Client 1 testdomain1 com Websites Domains Web Hosting Access note And switch the IP to anything but the IP we want to use 198 144 188 156 The main shared IP is a good choice on this step If you don t do this then the IP won t be available even under your root account as it s still assigned to this client s domain Okay so now go back to the main Subscription page Select all domains and click Change Subscriber Select your root account name and click Next Under New IP Address select the IP you want to use in my case 198 144 188 156 and hit FINISH Job Done Almost highlight WARNING highlight There is a bug in Plesk 11 and you will see all spare IPs in the drop down If you chose an IP that isn t yours you will break Plesk and your domain will no longer be manageable in Plesk and will not resolve If this happens simnply go back to Change Subscribers switch the domains back to the main Shared IP and then repeat the process again but select the correct IP So now we have moved all your domains into your root account and assigned them the dedicated IP you
