Domain Names / Re: Domain names with special characters
« on: January 09, 2014, 08:16:49 PM »

Yes, characters and alphabets are 2 different parameters that needs to be considered when registering the domain name. Domain names that contain these special, so called non-ASCII, characters are called Internationalised Domain Names - IDNs for short. Register the name with a .eu accredited registrar.

Errors and Solutions / Re: Errors related to Outlook
« on: January 09, 2014, 12:24:47 AM »
Manjeet, thank you for the solution.

Here is one more which I have been receiving. I have been receiving this error when trying to send/receive emails. This error is thrown by Outlook Express after failing to store the downloaded email in its data store file i.e. Inbox.dbx file. Outlook Express tries to store it in Inbox.dbx, if the Inbox.dbx file is corrupted OR if it reaches the threshold of 2GB then it will not allow to store the emails.

An unknown error has occurred. Error Number: 0x800C0133

Follow these 8 steps and you should be able to send/receive emails.

1. In Outlook Express go to Tools >> Options >> Maintenance and then click “Store Folder…” button, and open the path shown there. Check the size of Inbox.dbx, if its size is 2GB it means it has reached it's threhold OR it's corrupt. Irrespective of whether it has been corrupted OR reached the threshold of 2GB, we will move all the messages to the new folder and will create a new blank Inbox.dbx file.

2. Create a new folder in Outlook Express by right clicking “Local Folders” and then clicking “New Folder” and provide it a name e.g. “Inbox Old”.

3. Exit Outlook Express

4. Now, open the data store folder of Outlook Express as discussed in step 1.

5. Rename “Inbox.dbx” file to “Inbox1.dbx”

6. Rename “Inbox Old.dbx” to “Inbox.dbx”

7. Rename “Inbox1.dbx” to “Inbox Old.dbx”

8. Start Outlook Express. You will see a blank Inbox folder and all the emails of Inbox will be under Inbox Old folder.

Emails will be functional now. If you still face the same issue, the corrupt .dbx file needs to be repaired with some third party utility.

Shantanu, thank you for the insights & hope this post helps users in fixing the issue.

How To's / How to configure MediaWiki on temporary URL ?
« on: January 08, 2014, 01:55:21 PM »
Dear Wiki Users,

This tutorial will help you to configure MediaWiki on the temporary URL. It comes handy when your domain does not points to server IP. Alternatively, you can point the domain name locally using the hosts file on your local machine.

Login to your File Manager OR FTP & access file LocalSettings.php. Edit this file and find for options below.

$wgScriptPath & $wgServer

wgScriptPath is the DirectoryPath where MediaWiki is installed & $wgServer is the server IP address. When updated they should look like below.

$wgScriptPath = "/~cPanel-username";
$wgServer = "http://xx.xx.xx.xx";

Replace cPanel-username with actual cPanel username & xx.xx.xx.xx with actual web server IP address.

Save the file & you will be able to access your MediaWiki installation on temporary URL.

Hi Members,

I recently started a thread to install MP4BOX on CentOS server. Post installation, when trying to convert the video I received an error below.

/usr/local/bin/MP4Box: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
try following

Looking at the error, I found that the binaries that are required are not installed/compiled under /usr/local/lib. Below is what I did to fix it.

# install -m644 bin/gcc/ /usr/local/lib/
# chmod +x /usr/local/lib/
# ldconfig

Now, try executing the binary & it should show the available options.

# /usr/local/bin/MP4Box
MP4Box [option] input [option]

How To's / How to install MP4BOX on your CentOS server ?
« on: January 06, 2014, 05:43:17 PM »

What is MP4BOX ?

The multimedia packager available in GPAC is called MP4Box. MP4Box is a MP4 multiplexer.It is capable of importing MPEG-4 video, DivX, XviD, 3ivx, h264 etc, audio streams and subtitles into the .mp4 container. It results in a compliant MP4 stream. It can also extract streams from a .mp4. MP4Box is a command line tool, but can be used with graphical user interfaces such as YAMB or my MP4box GUI.

Now, let's try installing it on your server with CentOS. With commands below; it will download the source file, extract it & compile MP4BOX.

#cd /usr/local/src/
# wget
# wget
# tar -zxvf gpac-0.4.5.tar.gz
# tar -zxvf gpac_extra_libs-0.4.5.tar.gz
# cd gpac_extra_libs
# cp -r * /usr/local/src/gpac/extra_lib
# cd gpac
# chmod 755 configure
# ./configure
# make lib
# make apps
# make install lib
# make install
# cp bin/gcc/ /usr/lib

If you wish to check if it has been installed properly, use command below. The result output should show the binary path of MP4BOX.

# which MP4Box

Feel free to update this thread if you face any issues.

Dear Members,

When starting a VPS on a OpenVZ node, you might receive an error as below.

vzquota : (error) Quota file check sum is invalid for id ; file is broken

It is due to incorrect quota assigned to your VPS. You will have to drop the quota parameter and restart your VPS. Below are the steps using which you can fix the error.

#vzctl stop vpsid
#vzquota drop vpsid
#vzctl start vpsid

I hope this helps in starting your VPS  8)

Good Day Members,

Your container won't be able to execute the ‘ntpdate‘ command (it sets the local date and time by polling the Network Time Protocol (NTP) server(s) given as the server arguments to determine the correct time) due to the following error message in /var/log/messages

Nov 12 21:24:26 schd04 ntpd[15868]: kernel time sync status 0040
Nov 12 21:24:26 schd04 ntpd[15868]: getaddrinfo: "::1" invalid host address, ignored
Nov 12 21:24:27 schd04 ntpd[15868]: cap_set_proc() failed to drop root privileges: Operation not permitted

It is because your container does not has sys_time enabled. Please browse How to allow a VPS to set custom timezone ? to enable sys_time on your container.

Once done, ntpdate should start working as expected.

News and Announcements / OpenVZ Platform - Important network update
« on: December 14, 2013, 11:08:25 AM »
Dear OpenVZ Users,

An effort to make you aware of an issue that is affecting OpenVZ Red Hat based VPS servers. This issue can effect Fedora and Centos based systems hosted on any VZ platforms.

An update for Red Hat based operating systems was recently released by the developers of these Linux distros, that breaks the IP route binary (iproute-2.6.32-23.el6.i686) installed on them. If the IP route software is broken, then the networking service for the operating system will not start and the VPS will not connect to the network.  When a VPS is affected in this manner, SolusVM panel may report that the VPS is started, however it will not be accessible over the internet. 

Please be aware that a large amount of our OpenVZ VPS clients have Centos installed on their VPS servers & are affected due to this update.

Please get in touch with our Support team & ask us for assistance.

Hello Members,

I want you to be aware of the strange issue that I faced on one of our CentOS servers. System log file /var/log/messages was flooded with the error message as below. The log file was so large with these messages that the server ran our of disk space.

server atd[10055]: File a0001a015f162e is in wrong format - aborting

This should be due to the at command which was not executed properly. You will have to find the job number and then remove the job from the queue.

# atq a0001a015f162e

It should show an output as below. This will help to get hold of the job number.

# 15 2013-10-05 00:42 a root

Here, the job number is 15. Use the command below to remove the job number from queue.

# atrm 15

This should stop occupying the disk space on the server.

Errors and Solutions / Response: 500 OOPS: cannot change directory:/home/
« on: December 12, 2013, 08:49:02 PM »

When trying to connect your account via FTP using FileZilla, you might receive an error as below.

Response:   500 OOPS: cannot change directory:/home/username
Error:   Critical error
Error:   Could not connect to server

This usually happens when selinux is enabled on your server. You can either disable selinux on the server OR perform the commands below. It is not recommended to disable selinux as it adds security.

#getsebool -a | grep ftp ; ftp_home_dir --> off
#setsebool -P ftp_home_dir on;ftp_home_dir --> on

Try connecting to the account via FTP now. It should work.
