Website on plesk windows Server asking for Username and password

Dedicated Server, Virtual Private Server, VPS Hosting, Web-Hosting, Windows Hosting

Website on Plesk Windows Server/Plesk VPS asking for Username and password.

I have recently purchased a Windows VPS with Plesk control panel and have uploaded website files. While visiting my website it is asking for username and password authentication. Now, I haven’t set any authentication on server for any website, what shall I need do?

This is quite common with the sites hosted on windows server with plesk as a control panel. You are not allowed to acces the site whtout authentication – entering username and password. This is not a bug or issue but is related to password synchronization with IIS server. To resolve this, you will need to synchronize the password.

Below given are some simple steps that you will need to follow:

  1. RDP to your windows server as an administrator.
  2. Start>Run>cmd [this will take you to sytem command prompt]
  3. cd to plesk\admin\bin [shortcut is cd %plesk_bin%]
  4. Type websrvmng.exe –update-anon-password –domain-name=yourdomain.com

The above command will synchronize the password and you will require no more password authentication to view the content.

If this doesn’t work for you, then please open a support ticket and we’ll investigate further and fix the issue for you happily.

Captcha image is not working – Fatal error?

Dedicated Server, PHP, Scripts, Security, Virtual Private Server, Web-Hosting, www

Captcha image is not working – Fatal error?

You have the GD image library installed and otherwise working.
Still unable to get captcha with the captcha plugin.

You are not sure what’s the problem as it works on one of your other sites.  When you try to include the captcha on your website or contact form it generates an error message like…
Call to undefined function imagettftext() OR
Fatal error: Call to undefined function imagettftext() in /home/user/public_html/appfolder/plugins/captcha/captcha.php on line 99  OR
Fatal error: Call to undefined function imagefttext() in /home/user/public_html/lib/captcha/captcha.php on line 329 OR
‘–enable-gd-native-ttf’

Problem could be, because the standard PHP “imagefttext()” function does not work on your server.
It can caused by the fact that there is no –enable-gd-native-ttf key installed on your server as the Cart uses GD Library for displaying the verification image.

Please note that PHP must be configured with the following keys:
–with-gd –enable-gd-native-ttf  Contact your host to make the change!

Any idea why or how it can be fixed?

imagettftext() is part of the GD image functions library, which is not always part of PHP (the code CMS/Cart runs on).
You need to contact your host and ask them to install the PHP GD library. It’s really simple for them to do and is fairly common, so if they give you a hard time about it, I would seriously consider switching to better and friendly host – UnicHost :).

FLUSH DNS in Windows Linux Mac OS

Web-Hosting, www

FLUSH DNS in different platforms

In Microsoft Windows, you can use the command flushdns to flush the DNS resolver cache.
Open the command prompt and type the following:
C:>ipconfig /flushdns
Windows IP Configuration
Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.

In Mac OSX Leopard, you can use the command dscacheutil -flushcache to flush the DNS resolver cache:
bash-2.05a$ dscacheutil -flushcache

In Mac OSX versions 10.5.1 and before, the command lookupd -flushcache performed the same task:
bash-2.05a$ lookupd -flushcache

In Linux, the nscd daemon manages the DNS cache. To flush the DNS cache, restart the nscd daemon.
To restart the nscd daemon, use the command
#/etc/init.d/nscd restart

Clear-ssh-command-history-in-ssh-cache-from-server

Dedicated Server, Virtual Private Server, Web-Hosting

When I login to SSH and push the up arrow, the previous commands are shown. How do I clear or delete that log?

Clear the history for current login or current user.
#history -c

First find the history file for particular user.
Delete .bash_history file, will be recreated again next time.
#locate .bash_history
#rm .bash_history

It is not a best practice to totally disable the ssh command history on any dedicated server or vps server. It’s a quick reference to user’s past actions on server.

phpinfo.php file on server

Dedicated Server, PHP, Scripts, Setup, www

How to check php settings by using phpinfo on server?

Each server is setup differently whether it is a dedicated server or a virtual server, phpinfo() is commonly used to check configuration settings and for available predefined variables on a given web server.

phpinfo() is a valuable debugging tool as it contains all the data, information related to environment, GET, POST, Cookie, Server etc.

To create the file simply add the following lines of code to a blank document.
<?php
phpinfo();
?>

Save the file as phpinfo.php and place it in the desired directory. Lastly, call the script from a browser.

http://www.your-own-website-example.com/folder/phpinfo.php

This php file will output detail information about the current state of PHP: PHP compilation options and extensions, the PHP version, server information and environment, the PHP environment, OS version information, paths, master and local values of configuration options, HTTP headers, and the PHP License as well.

MySQL Triggers on Shared Hosting Account

MySQL, Shared Hosting

Do you allow MySQL Triggers on Shared Hosting Account

We are runnig MySQL 5.0.x on our shared and reseller hosting servers. In order to use TRIGGERS with MySQL 5.0.x, you must have the SUPER privileges. For security reasons, we do not grant this to regular users.

We do plan to eventually upgrade to MySQL 5.1 and it will be a simple matter of enabling the TRIGGER privilege per-user. As if now, for security reasons, we will not be enabling any sort of workarounds to enable TRIGGER privileges. TRIGGER will not be available on shared reseller servers until MySQL 5.1 is installed.

We will suggest you to have a look at our economy VPS packages, where you will be able to escalate the privilages with the latest version of mysql installed.
