  1. So, why was there not any notice that we would be migrating to a new server? The problem is twofold:


    • I have user (including myself) that use the philadelphia.snhdns.com, instead of mail.<insertdomainname>.com, because we use SSL and if we don't use philadelphia.snhdns.com, then we get a warnings
    • I have services that use the SSL connection and now we will have to import new SSL certificates
  2. Is PHP 5.5 available on TCH's servers yet? I know I sound like a broken record, but it's beginning to be very frustrating to have to keep asking about new PHP versions, when TCH's competitors are implementing new PHP versions almost as fast as they roll out and allow access to these via easy methods (****** actually has a CPanel icon for PHP versions and PHP extensions.)

  3. Not sure if this will help. Or this.



    Well, the problem with every solution that I have found, is that we do not have access to the USER tables, except by interface in CPANEL. For instance:


    To fix this error I did the exact opposite of what that website says.

    What happens is that MySQL had the password stored in the old format, change the password to the new format.


    To check this, open the MySQL console (mysql.exe in Windows) and run:


    SELECT Host, User, Password FROM mysql.user;


    If the Password column is a 16-digit hexadecimal number, then the password is in the old format.


    Then you have to execute:


    SET PASSWORD FOR 'your_user'@'your_host' = PASSWORD ( 'your_old_password');


    Where your_user is the user name and your_host is the hostname as appear in the corresponding columns and your_old_password' is the old password stored without encription (plain text).


    That solved my problem.

    I get access denied, whether remote or via PHPMyAdmin, to the USER table.

  4. We are having trouble making a remote connection from our local PHP site to the TCH MySQL server. This is the errors we are getting:


    WARNING [2] mysql_connect(): OK packet 6 bytes shorter than expected, Line: 34 in file C:\inetpub\local_intranet\website_updater.php


    WARNING [2] mysql_connect(): mysqlnd cannot connect to MySQL 4.1+ using old authentication, Line: 34 in file C:\inetpub\local_intranet\website_updater.php


    I've had this issue locally before, and fixed it....somehow (can't find my notes), but we cannot figure this one out. We've reset passwords. We're using PHP 5.3.1.

  5. We are testing some uses of this product and on our servers here, we had to make a server change for Silverlight to run. It appears when I load apps onto TCH servers, I get the same results that we had before we made the change.


    Will Silverlight run on these servers, and if not now, will TCH make that possible at some point?

  7. This bot has been nothing but bad news for the past 2 years and from my recent tests it still does not obey robots.txt. I have discovered this bot nailing 3 different servers over the last 3 days for hours at a time on individual sites. The funny thing is the site on each server was very small(less than 20 pages each), yet this bot crawled it for hours.


    They have been claiming to be an experimental bot for a great new search engine for some time now, but have mostly caused site owners grief. I also read that at least on of the developers is an ex Google employee. In my opinion, if Twiceler is representative of his work at Google then it is no wonder he is an EX employee.


    As of now all know Twiceler IPs have been banned across our server farm. This ban will remain in place until I see proof that this bot is legitimate and does something other than bring down our customer sites.


    I'm getting hammered by this bot. Has this ban been lifted?

  8. Why were we not notified via email? I don't expect to have to watch a forum to know that we are going to have an outage? I've subscribed to forums here before, and received a few emails and then it stops. The way I found out that we are having any problems was I submitted a ticket stating all my sites were down and was told to come look at this thread. What gives? Am I expected to look here every day to know these things? I've got customers on this server.


    I've been a very satisified customer for about 2 years. I'm find this situation to be uncharacteristically poor customer service.


    Actually, I am subscribed to this forum now and I never receive anything.
