PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Suhosin Extension
does not officially support PHP 5.2 and below anymore, because it is
discontinued. Use it at your own risk. in Unknown on line 0

Since the php upgrade, you might have noticed these type of errors in your server logs. Must be wondering a perfect solution for this.

Actually you should be able to use the latest build, however some older scripts or applications might get in trouble, unless they are ready for latest php version. You need not to worry any more, as you have jumped to right place for it. Just follow the below given steps and you will be at rest.

What to do?

Easy enough, downgrade suhosin from 0.9.33 to 0.9.31 :

# remove suhosin from easyapache php config
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/phpextensionmgr uninstall PHPSuHosin

# download and install older suhosin
tar zxf suhosin-0.9.31.tgz
cd suhosin-0.9.31
make install

#open php.ini and add line loading suhosin
vi /usr/local/lib/php.ini

#Add following line into extensions section:

Save and close the file,  restart apache and you are done. You can also verify if everything is ok with the command php -v from the prompt.

Important factors about domain name registration.

A factor by factor quality analysis of the domain name, as an example, is given below. Useful for website appraisals, and buying and registering domain names.

1. Length

Unichost is a 8 character word. Shorter words make better domain names. At 8 characters should make a good domain name.

4. Distinctivity

Website on plesk windows Server asking for Username and password

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 –

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?

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

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 :).

How to point multiple domain names to my existing website?

Filed under: Domain Name,Web-Hosting,www — Tags: , , , — Unichost @ 6:30 pm

Do you allow to point multiple domain names to my existing website?

Yes, this is also called as domain parking. We can point multiple domains for you to your existing website. For this you will need to submit your request through support help desk. These domains must point to your main website.

If you are looking to host another website under the same hosting package, please get in touch with our sales team. We do offer generous multiple domain hosting discounts to host multiple websites under single account. (Usually you won’t get this facility with other hosts.)

[Note: You will be sharing existing resources for all the websites you add under the existing hosting account. There won’t be a separate control panel for each website.]

What is the difference between www and public_html ?

Filed under: Web-Hosting,www — Tags: , , , — Unichost @ 2:01 pm

Is there any technical difference between www and public_html?

Actually, there is no difference between www and public_html. Technically, the default directory created to upload your web files is public_html. To make it more user friendly and understandable – www, the symbolic link is created (it is like a desktop shortcut) that points to the same folder. Upload your website related content to one of these folders, it doesn’t matter at all.

How to transfer WebSite to Unic-Host

Filed under: Bandwidth,Transfer,Web-Hosting — Tags: , , — Unichost @ 11:53 am

Transferring Website from existing Host

Transferring from other hosting companies to can be easy if you follow the right steps. We’ve created an easy-to-follow, suggested checklist for you to transfer your website to UnicHost. If you need any additional guidance, or have any questions about the transfer process, please contact our Customer Service Team.

1. Sign up for hosting with UnicHost
You can sign up via this website by clicking on any of the hosting package suitable for your business. It will take less than an hour [after payment confirmation] to get your plan  set up on our network.

2. UnicHost will email you once your plan is provisioned on our servers
You’ll receive a “Web Site Ready” and “Getting Started” email from us about an hour after you order confirmation. These emails will provide you with your static IP address, DNS information, account summary, and links to our Knowledge Base with helpful information to get your website up and running.

3. Upload your website files, transfer your database, and create your email addresses
Upload your website files to the IP address we provided, transfer your database, and create your email addresses from within our Web Control Panel. Afterward, you can test your website by typing in your IP address into any Internet browser to be sure everything works prior to pointing your domain to our network.

4. Update your domain’s DNS settings
Once your website is tested and is operating per your expectations, contact your domain name registrar and change your DNS settings to UnicHost. Your registrar is the company you purchased your domain name from (e.g. eNom, Register, GoDaddy, etc.), and you should be able to log into your domain management tool online. From here, you’ll replace your existing primary and secondary name servers with the ones we provided you in the Web Site Ready email. This change will take about 24 to 72 hours to propagate and update throughout the internet.

5. Wait for your domain to propagate (approximately 24-72 hours)
While your domain propagation is taking effect, you will basically have two websites available and active – one at your old host, and one on our servers. This will minimize any lost traffic and/or email. In order to receive mail from both locations, you will need two profiles in your email client – the one that is already drawing email from your old host and the new one drawing email from us. Alternatively, you can also simply use our web mail interface available in the Web Control Panel to get the email that is sent to our servers.

6. Cancel with your previous host
After the appropriate propagation time, you can go and cancel the hosting account you have at your previous host, as all of your website traffic and emails should now be coming to our servers.

7. Transfer your domain name (optional)
If you would like to transfer your domain and consolidate your registration and web hosting to one source,[it’s better to have everything under one roof from the management perspective] you can utilize the Domain Registration Admin tool in the DNS section of the Web Control Panel. The domain transfer itself costs NOTHING; we simply add one year of registration onto the expiration date for Rs.495/- [$9.95] (we utilize eNom/DirectI as our registrar). After that, you will be able to renew your domain name with a click of a mouse in the Web Control Panel at the same great price.
