    EFF Let's Encrypt SSL certificate usage

    I have a question regarding using the AutoSSL domain certs for ftp. Is that possible? I setup AutoSSL and it seems to be working fine. But all domains are currently listed as www.domain.com/domain.com/mail.domain.com. Seems like I ought to be able to add ftp.domain.com but maybe not.

    EFF Let's Encrypt SSL certificate usage

    Thanks to both of you. Dan, I'll have a look at that article. My goal at the moment is just to enable SSL connections everywhere. Thanks for the help.

    EFF Let's Encrypt SSL certificate usage

    I did a quick search for this and did not see any posts so excuse me if this is a repeat. My SSL certificates are expiring at the end of the month and I am considering using the free EFF CA rather than paying to renew the Comodo certs I have now. Does KH support this? If so is there anything...

    Thanks Fred. I'll look into it further.

    Looking for any experience with ownCloud

    Has anyone here experimented with ownCloud <https://owncloud.org/install/>? I have an efriend in the EU who has set this up and written about it a little, and I have looked over some of the documentation. But, honestly, I do not know too much about it. I'm interested in having something under...

    Backup options

    On the issue of a separate, emergency email I understand your point now. It seems like an inexpensive hosting account for a domain somewhere else is a reasonable approach. I know there are also registrars that offer email accounts. I'm not sure how this works as I haven't used it, but hover.com...

    Backup options

    Somewhere (maybe in another thread here) I was told that WHM has no mechanism for deleting files from S3. I would have to go back and look at my settings - I don't think they are quite the same as yours - but no files have ever been deleted from my S3 acccount.

    Backup options

    Disclaimer: I'm no expert and these are just opinions based on my experience. I had an "unlimited" Bluehost account for 7-8 years - until this past fall. Their TOS specifically prohibited using it for backup. I didn't and so never had any issues, so can't say how often or aggressively they...

    Email server configuration and SMTP not responding

    Oh, hell no. It was a completely stupid user error. My user error. The port setting box in the mail client is small, and the text next to it says Default Port: 465. I had already set it to 465 but through some combination of fumble fingers, bad luck, wonky mouse button or whatever it got set to...

    Backup options

    You might be right about the sync function. I won't be using that at the outset, just the upload of local backup files. But with the bucket policies it's not too big a deal to move them off to cheaper storage after a few weeks anyway. Did you find it pretty easy to setup and configure? Thanks.

    Backup options

    I have also begun using the cPanel S3 destination option for backups, however it doesn't have the control I would like - namely to push files to less expensive Reduced Redundancy Storage and invoke server-side encryption at Amazon as the file is received. For that matter, the tool I use to...

    Email server configuration and SMTP not responding

    I got a reply on port 26. I was able to clear up the problem. There was a loose nut between the steering wheel and the seat... ;-)

    Email server configuration and SMTP not responding

    Thank you very much for the response. I will leave the Plaintext setting to Yes for now. I am able to make SMTP connections to other servers, just not mine. When I telnet to port 25 I get the following response: 220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited and/or...

    Email server configuration and SMTP not responding

    I have a few questions regarding my mail server configuration. 1. SMTP: I am unable to send email via SMTP. I get a connection timed out error. In Service Configuration > Service Manager Exim SMTP is enabled and I receive emails generated from the system, but I cannot login to the server as a...

    SSL Error

    A secondary question regarding mail. Within Service Configuration » Mailserver Configuration there is an option for Allow Plaintext Authentication (from remote clients). This is set to Yes by default. From the explanatory text for the option I take it that No is the better setting and that No is...
