I got a notice that they were reducing the number of servers to 1 due to the high cpanel cost. I responded that I wanted to migrate to the "EWR" server but, haven't heard back from then since I responded on the 21th of Dec 2019. Anyone been able to contact them or is the service officially dead?

Hi,

I tried t install Node.js using the terminal in my account and was greeted
with the message that I'm not a sudoer. Sorry about that forgot this wasn't
my vps. Sad Anyways would it be possible to install Node.js 10? Here are the
instructions from
https://nodejs.org/en/download/package-manager/#enterprise-linux-and-fedora:

curl --silent --location https://rpm.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | sudo bash -

sudo yum -y install nodejs

Optional
o compile and install native addons from npm you may also need to install
build tools:

sudo yum install gcc-c++ make# or: sudo yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'

Thanks,

I haven't received a response from you guys yet. In case your wondering yes, it is 100% possible and this tutorial will show you how to get it set it up thought i haven't tried it myself.

I have a subdomain https://ignition*scorpionilluminati.tk/ being redirected to a page called Shair & Nature. Whats weird is it is currently setup to point to a folder called "ignition" inside my home folder and not another web page. The contents of that folder is a single file:

?>

You have permission to verify that yourselves.I also verified my dns setting are correct. link to test results are correct and in working order. Could you please check into this?

We are no longer accepting new clients into the FreePgs service.

All future plans for setting up new servers have been cancelled.

Existing accounts will not be removed at this time, but further discussion will need to take place to determine how this will continue.
I don't understand, why are you shutting down? Last i heard you were switching providers in some areas due to some people hacking into other peoples account and using the hacked account to spam. Freepgs is a great service and today is a sad day to see it get shutdown.

Sincerely,

Developer

As long as your site isn't taking multiple seconds per page load, you are generally fine.  (We are not talking about time waiting on downloading files to the client computer, Nginx offloads that part from Apache very well, but time waiting on your pages to generate due to waiting for MySQL, waiting for a remote API, etc.)

For the most part, we try to keep the load low on the servers.  We let users exceed CPU-I/O time limits for a period of time in case they are working with their site or are getting a traffic spike.  When we get complaints on the performance of a specific server, if we find these high resource users and the reason they are using resources is Google is crawling their site (because their site takes 10 seconds to load on each pageview), we generally disable the user and attempt to help them index their tables or explain what processes are using too many resources.

If your site loads fast, you will likely never fall into this group.

By replying to this topic, we didn't want to send the message that we were thinking of discontinuing the service, because we are not.  We may need to consolidate it further in an effort to lose less money, but there is no reason the service will need to be discontinued in the near future.
I'm sorry but everytime i see:

I start to fear the worst.

You should create indexes for any column your are sorting or filtering by.  If you are not sorting by that column (i.e. using it in an ORDER BY clause) or filtering by that field (using it in a WHERE clause), this will not be necessary.  [This should also be done if joining tables using these fields.]
My app uses where clauses for user.username, username.password, matchindex.id, matchindex.challenger and matchindex.defender. You can see how everything works on my github page. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I feel bad for the users that don't cause problems, but unfortunately, there are numerous problems being caused, most are not intentional (while some are).

-Dormant sites/scripts that then get exploited (because they are not kept up to date)
-Users using too many resources (page loads taking 10+ seconds, easily DoS'd)
-Improperly indexed tables (likely no indexes at all on some)
-Inefficient database queries
-Selection of lower PHP versions that is necessary to run their script.
So do i, a few bad apples ruining it for everyone is very unfair.
Quote
For tables: If a field is in the ORDER BY or WHERE clauses, be sure those fields are indexed.  (i.e. If you are filtering for something and/or sorting by something, those fields you are sorting and filtering by should be indexed at the very minimum.)
Could you please explain this a bit more? Does that mean I should create indexes for all my columns? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: You should also remove PHP versions that have reached EOL(end-of-life) PHP 5.3 EOL Announcement and require the site owners to use the next higher version. If the scripts on the site stops working then the owner will hopefully "wake up" and can either upgrade the script to a newer version, ask the script publisher to support the latest PHP version or move to a different script. I once had a very bad experience with a host that refuses to upgrade past 5.2.17 because:

Sorry for the double post.  Our plans are to remove 5.2 and 5.3 once 5.6 is released.  (5.2 may very well be removed before that.  It has only been kept due to compatibility reasons for some users, but honestly it is not worth the risk.)  The problem is that some have 5.2.17 selected that can use a newer version.
True, however they will be running newer versions of PHP that are more secure and compatibility won't maa difference throwing out the whole "5.2.17 for compatibility" issue. As for the others that aren't compatible my last comment still stands.

P.S. Could you please change the Pong Master text next to my name to Aleeious Lead Developer Thanks.

Are you not able to update your title in the forum?  If not, I will do this for you.
Nope, seems when you upgraded the forum you removed the permissions required to self update it. Thanks for updating it.

I didnt realized default php from centos yum is 5.3 x_x I just upgraded to 5.5 using remi/epel repo on my vps just now. centos is too slow to get to packages.

Aleeious, there is an auto update plugin for wordpress, I tried before and It works, you might want to looking into it Smiley
There is no need to install a plug-in, Wordpress 2.7+ includes it as part of the core software and for reference i currently don't use Wordpress but, have in the past.

Not sure why it won't let me edit my original post but, here is a literately 3 minute video on updating your Wordpress installation with just a couple of clicks. Now there is no excuse for why you didn't do it.

you can always setup smtp with mandrill or google/yahoo smtp
While this can be done easily it would look very suspicious and unprofessional to do this. The reason is anyone can easily open a gmail account and send messages claiming to have your account banned for whatever and asking for your username and password. Believe me this happens more often then you think and people fall for it all the time.

Thank you.  We will take these under advisement.

Most likely, we will just stop all mail() functions, but unfortunately, sending of spam is not the only thing that is happening with users and their outdated scripts nor is it just malicious scripts injected on sites, but files being added to phish, etc that themselves are not malicious (in that antivirus, mod_security, rkhunter (which we already use) would catch.

We will go through all users searching for outdated scripts.  If a site is found to contain outdated scripts we will be forced to disable all of the users sites permanently without notice.  This is unfortunate, but there are too many users that load a script and never use it.  Be sure you either keep every script updated or remove scripts you are not using.  This includes scripts in /old directories, etc.

In the past, we blocked the mail function and only allowed it upon request.  This may need to happen again.  (As said above, this would not stop all of the abuse.)

Everyone needs to keep every script they use up to date.  They need to be using the highest PHP version their scripts will allow.  We will be removing 5.2/5.3 from all servers in the near future.  If your scripts do not run with PHP 5.4 or later, it is time to find something else to use.

Due to all of the breaches of late, be sure you are changing all passwords regularly.  Especially control panel, FTP, and mail account passwords, but it is also a good idea to change database passwords as well.
This is all very sound advice and disabling mail globally and requiring users to ask to have the function enabled individually would mean only those who truly need it have it enabled. I am developing a php game and just switched on version 5.5 and hope to get it working on that version. As for my script, i try to write my script with security in mind, and as my script doesn't upload and all input is sanitized and checked for validity. Tongue I have changed all my passwords recently as a security precaution.

It will break existing customers scripts.
Not only is this a security hazard, but it is very bad advice in general. I'll spare the host embarrassment and not mention who it was but, i will say it was a paid host. Surface to say I asked for a refund and used the money to pay for 10 years of freepgs hosting at the then $3 a year annual fee. That was the best well spent money I have payed. Tongue.

Admin, are you Ed? install rkhunter, chkrootkit, ClamAV, and mod_security. If you can limit sending mail or block it completely.

For wordpress users, I believe there is a plugin to let auto update plugins/theme (not sure auto update wordpress core or not).
Those are for rootkits and viruses which while useful don't really do much since I suspect many of the scripts sending the spam are normal php scripts that exploit a security hole somewhere down the line or simply scripts that run indefinitely using the mail() function to send a predetermined email message. mod_security seems like  very good answer as well as Suhosin. Limiting emails may pose a problem when the person hosing the site can no longer send password reset instructions or registration info to users.
