    Renaming my domain on the same server

    Hi there TheGrove! Why not just create a new account for Once you do that just restore your data from to it. Once you've done that delete the account for and do the addon thing with the redirect on the new account. I don't see why that wouldn't work...

    Semi-dedicated VPS vs VPS

    This confused me too. Wouldn't that make it a semi-VPS rather than a semi-dedicated? As it's a step below a VPS and not a step below a dedicated server?

    Auto resource scaling...

    I can take a swing at this although I may not know the actual technical side of things. Older VPS systems allowed just that, they gave you a guaranteed minimum of resources and allowed 'bursting' to higher amounts of those resources. However what happens when everyone 'bursts' into those higher...

    FritzFrog botnet

    Hi @hochd Are you saying that you've found SSH brute force attempts to the alternate port that KH configures? Because I haven't seen any at all myself other than a few random attempts here and there... Very interesting read, thanks!

    WHM v88

    Hi there Larry! If you're on the Stable or Release update tier you should be as safe as you can be. I've been running 88 for a couple weeks now, I think it is, and I have not had any issues. Dan

    So what's up with the Network and Hardware status

    Hi Dave! I'm not 100% sure but I think that the Admin has it set to only show the past few days worth of posts in that section.

    CSF dropping Virtuozzo/OpenVZ support

    I did find this post on ConfigServer's forum stating that it will keep working but that changes may need to be made to the default installation for new servers. Hopefully they will at least provide some guidance on what should be changed. That's some comfort at least however does this mean that...

    Looks like ConfigServer is dropping support for Virtuozzo/OpenVZ, here's a snippet from the version 14.02 changelog Are there even any decent viable alternatives for CSF?

    Large backups to S3

    Backups ran on Saturday and the change that I made to Maximum Destination Backup Timeout made no difference at all. Still only 8 of the backups were transferred. Total elapsed time of the transporter log was less than 30 minutes. Thanks for the help everyone but it looks like I should just...

    Large backups to S3

    Hi JonathanKW! That timeout is set to 30 seconds and has a maximum of 300, it looks like it's just looking for a response from the remote server and is not a transfer timeout. I'm not seeing any of the text from your log file snippet at all in my log. No 'LoggerAdapter' or 'warn' or anything...

    Large backups to S3

    Hi Josh, The Maximum destination backup timeout was at the default setting, I think it was 2700 which is 45 minutes. I have now changed it to 6 hours. The whole log from beginning to end is little more than 20 minutes, 21:39 to 22:02 so, yeah, certainly no where near the 45 minute timeout...

    Large backups to S3

    JonathanKW, Nope, no timeout indicated anywhere. I'll attach a copy of my log here, the two added to the queue that only have three lines are the backups that were added and failed. However doesn't the destination timeout really mean the maximum time without any response back or is it actually...

    Large backups to S3

    Hi there! I previously used a script I wrote with the help of some others on the forum to run backups and then upload them to S3, recently I had the backup file for my own domain start failing to transfer to S3 because it has gotten fairly large (over 13GB). Sometimes it would transfer and...
