    Multiple domains on VPS

    Thanks for the info Dan. I decided to go with the dedicated IP because I plan later on down the road to use an SSL certificate on the new website. I'll try to find the tutorial you mentioned.

    Multiple domains on VPS

    I'm trying to understand the basic concept of how to run two domains on my VPS. My present situation is that I have one domain running. I've recently purchased another domain name which I probably will run later on my VPS. I'm not a reseller but looking only to run two domains from my VPS...

    php.ini and allow_url_fopen

    And along those lines, with "allow_url_fopen=off" in the php.ini file, it is supposed to still allow access to "local" files when "fopen" is used in a php script. However, I've tested some scripts and they always fail to allow "fopen" to open local files. I'm at a loss here as to why this...

    php.ini and allow_url_fopen

    I'm playing around with some new software on my site that requires "allow_url_fopen=on". However, I've disabled this in my php configuration settings in WHM by setting "allow_url_fopen=off". I'm aware that on some servers one can override that by placing a php.ini file in each subfolder...

    DNS zone confusion revisited

    OK, after reading your posts I think I'll stop worrying about it. I feel better now that I have had it explained to me the way you've explained it to me. Thanks so much for clearing this up for me.

    DNS zone confusion revisited

    My website has been setup and running for almost 3 months now. I have only my own website in my VPS account and am not a reseller. I can't see any problems with it so far even though at the beginning I had difficulty with my DNS zone stuff that got messed up when I did a software upgrade on...

    Change my Nameservers with Yahoo Domain

    OK I gotta question about changing my primary and secondary nameservers with my registrar, who happens to be Yahoo Domains. I've just gotten a VPS account. My email from KnownHost says: You need to create the following name servers at your registrar: ns1.mydomain.com using IP xx.xxx.5.xxx...

    Nameservers, DNS, and confusion

    Ok reading the posts here I noticed someone had almost something similar to mine back in March. They had tech support fix there problem. Reading over their solution I ended up going into "DNS Functions" in WHM under "Edit DNS Zone" I saw I had only an "ns1 14400 in A xx.xxx.6.xxx" but no "ns2"...

    Nameservers, DNS, and confusion

    Hey Dan, Thanks for the info. I did go to "Nameserver IPs" but what really confused me is that both of my IPS are in use. Since I only had two, there is nothing left for me to assign to ns2. In the section mentioned above it appears like this: IP Nameserver xx.xxx.5.xxx...

    Nameservers, DNS, and confusion

    OK, I did well most of the day with my new VPS account with cPanel/WHM: 1. Created one package and one account - I will only run one website on my VPS (I'm not a reseller). 2. Downloaded PuTTY so I could login directly to server without cPanel when needed. 3, Installed and configured csf+lfd...

    Website setup

    OK so far so good thanks to you guys. I created my account, nosed around, feel pretty comfortable with cPanel. Felling not to bad about WHM. I can logon to everything unsecure and secure (SSH). I downloaded and installed PuTTY on my computer so I can login SSH to server directly without...

    Website setup

    OK thanks for your input. I've been able to create a package and account, login to my cPanel account, and now things are looking pretty familiar. It took me a while to figure out cPanel login was on port 2082.

    Website setup

    I'm moving my website from a hosting environment to the new VPS account I just had setup with KnownHost. I have cPanel installed, which is nothing like the cPanel on my shared hosting server where I'm coming from. I am fluent in several coding languages and pretty good with building a website...
