    Move to SH-2?

    A number of years ago I moved my business from shared hosting with another company to a VPS-2 at Knownhost. I did that because I needed the reliability and performance of my own resources. I've been thrilled! I am heading toward retirement and expect to liquidate my business assets. So I...

    Cron advice needed.

    I've got a single database that I wish to back up every four hours business days. In cPanel I've got the following cron entry: 0 */4 * * 1-5 /usr/bin/mysqldump -uUSERNAME -pPASSWORD ACCOUNT_DB >/home/ACCOUNT/DBbackup It does not seem to run. The command works if I enter in a shell. Any...

    Boring.......

    Today is my one year anniversary with KnownHost and it's really boring. At the old place my server would get slow or go down and I could argue with support for days. I could also go on their forum and see hundreds of posts from people with similar problems. As far as I know, my KnownHost...

    Book keeping/Accounting software suggestions?

    I currently keep my business books in Quicken running on a Windows desktop. I'd like to find an application to put on my VPS so I could access my books from anywhere and free myself from the Windows platform. It needs to have features similar to Quicken to reconcile accounts and generate...

    tailwatchd

    This morning I got an email with the message: The service “tailwatchd” appears to be down. It looks like it was sent shortly after cpanel was updated to 11.50.0.19. Was this a one time thing or do I need to be doing something?

    Switching email client (Outlook 2000) from POP to IMAP

    At my business I use an old version of MS Outlook as my email client. It's currently configured to use the POP server. I've got to where I access the email account from multiple locations and devices, and I have an employee who also monitors the same email account. Life would be much better...

    Identifying node

    Somewhere I saw instructions on how to identify the node my VPS is on. It instructed to use a tracert to my ip and the next to last hop would be the node. When I tracert to my IP address (162.255.166.19) the next to last hop has no name just an IP address. The last few lines of my tracert...

    A testimonial (2 months in).

    You don't have a place for testimonials, so I decided to put it here where potential customers might see it. I've got a client/server application I wrote for my business which is built on top of another open source application. My business is seasonal so I do upgrades and development November...

    newB questions about name servers

    I have a shared hosting plan with another provider that is paid until August. Last month I signed up for a VPS at KnownHost. Yesterday I moved the last of my sites and applications to the VPS. Since that other account is paid for I'm letting them act as my registrar for the time being. I've...

    What does "fully managed support" mean to me.

    A couple questions I should have asked before moving to a VPS, but my shared host was killing me so I had to jump before I pulled all my hair out. We're talking about a VPS with a control panel. Do you keep the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) stack up to date or do I need to periodically...

    Need a (free) CMS recommendation

    The static content on the shared hosting I'm coming from were built with RVSiteBuilder. I've never been very impressed with it and I don't want to purchase a license for it here. I'm thinking a CMS is a better approach. I'm looking for recommendations on an open source CMS that is fairly...

    Very Happy (Day - 1)

    I have a couple domains on a shared hosting plan. One is for a club and the other is for my business. Total storage is less than 2GB. Bandwidth usage is non-existent, but I do peg the CPU a few seconds/day. All told it is 2 static(mostly) web sites, a forum and a homemade business app built...
