In today’s digital landscape, finding a reliable and secure Virtual Private Server (VPS) or Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) goes beyond just comparing specs and prices. With increasing concerns over data privacy, security breaches, and government surveillance, the wisdom of choosing your VPS/VDS provider based on juri........

This is actually because you are using less than 576MB of RAM. In my case I was installing on a KVM VPS with 512MB of RAM. This issue would apply to any physical or virtual server with less than 576MB of RAM. This includes Virtualized VPS Servers with XENHVM, KVM, VBOX, VMWare etc.. or Dedicated Servers with such little RAM.
It's very misleading of course since it has not........
Are you getting the same old error message even though your iptables settings for OpenVZ are correct?
iptables v1.3.5: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
The reason is because in newer vzctl the old way of setting IPTABLES="" in vz.conf is completely deprecated (I spent some time fiddling wondering why my settings were correct but........
I was worried the server was hacked, I was logged in already as root but couldn't login to CPanel or a new SSHsession. I even reset the password from the shell and it did not work still.
The reason is CPanel Hulk, it detected a brute-force attack so it locked down the root account entirely even from the correct password. According to cPanel the best way around this is to whitelist your IP.........
Basically it's usually because your Cpanel has new IPs and the old IPs it knows are no longer available/working/valid.
The solution is to change the site's IP but you may run into issues for various reasons. Here is what I encountered below.

The error itself "mkdir(): Too Many Links" is not very useful, but I'll translate it into plain English.
It means you've reached the filesystem's limit of how many directories can be created in a single directory.
In this case for ext3 the limit is 32000 and it was exceeded.
What's the solution?
The simple solution is to move those directories into more subdirectories possibly sorting them by date, alphabet or numerically.........

There are 3 pieces that are required to restore and make it work (of course consider if any kernel modules need to re-enabled and if you need to change the IPs):
Copy the vz/private/VEID directory to /vz/private
Copy the /etc/vz/conf/VEID.conf to /etc/vz/conf/
After that you should be able to see the VE in vzlist -a

This booting error is because the Xen PV guest image uses the Xen kernel, this is not compatible with anything but a host running a Xen kernel.
I did a kpartx -av virtual.img and then it created some partitions that showed up in fdisk.

One thing to note about DNS servers and providers is that they aren't always trustworthy, not even if they're Google or your favorite ISP. Any DNS server can compromise your privacy, and they are likely tracking your browsing habits and keeping logs of it. Sometimes it's for Marketing/Research purposes such as Google's GMail service which they admit is scraped/datamined. I would expect nothing less from their DNS service.
The other danger with such widely used and pu........
Virpus is advertised on LEB (lowendbox.com). My initial payment was refunded after days of not receiving the VPS, but two subscrption payments went through and Ionly received notification after the second one.

These are the only two I've encountered but here is the low-end and note my story is not at all unique.
In my case I was scammed out of money and did not receive any service at all from either company.

The problem is this VPS seems to be an OpenVZ template from HyperVM. The only way to make it work was to disable i386 packages since this was an x64 kernel. That shouldn't be necessary but it was the only way to make yum stop quitting after the first package or two. I couldn't find any issue by checking the logs either.

This really gives me a bad impression of SolusVM.
I tried the "Central Backup" option and it does not warn that your server gets shutdown instantly in order to do the backup!
Further, there is no way to pause or cancel the backup. Thankfully this is a test/small disk usage VPS but what if someone was running something production with a large filesize?
Ihaven't used QuickBackup but hope that isn't the same thing.

vzmigrate --online dest-host VEIDNO
vzmigrate --oneline 192.168.1.55 101
One option I would recommend is "--keep-dst", that way if the migration is interrupted you can still bring the VPS back up on the original host. After the migration is successful you can manually destroy it.

This server was experiencing loads of up to 80 and maxing out the RAM and kmemsize on a CPanel VPS. There were literally dozens if not hundreds of exim processes. I have no idea why exim has such a design that would allow it to consume this much CPU and RAM. Any normal MTA should not be spawning so many processes, it should be processing them in sequence and if it is going to spawn hundreds of processes in response to a large volume of mail, it's better to have a delayed del........

This is a great way to use your ftp server space, for example on your web hosting account (althoughI believe many hosts don't allow storage like this), but if you have a VPS/Dedicated Server etc.., this would be perfect.

Ihave no idea how to get the loopback device working in OpenVZ, but what's more frustrating is that I purchased a CPanel license for my VPS and clearly it is not "VPS Optimized". Although everything does seem to work at this point despite that error.

Proxmox has made this free utility to backup running OpenVZ containers. It's a great program which is actually just a PERL script but gets the job done. This program is not 100% required because all it really does is cp -a from your container's path as far as I know but it is still good to have uniformity to how you backup your containers.
For RPM distros such as Centos/RHEL/Fedora etc.. download and install this:
