  1. Hello, I've been a TCH customer for several years...5 or 6 now, I think...and I suddenly find myself in a situation I don't know how to handle. My site has been attacked - it looks like its some sort of brute force attack to gain access. So far, it looks like they have failed to crack any passwords - they're just hitting my site user login/new account page over and over, but what I don't understand is how this has resulted in 65GB of data being downloaded from my server??? This caused a warning to be sent to me that my server bandwidth usage had exceeded 80%, and that brought the issue
  2. Hi - I'm a TCH customer. I'm in the process of setting up a web site for my father so he can have a place to advertise his land development business, do a blog, property listings, etc. Dad isn't very computer literate, so I've got him learning the basics with Apple's iLife / iWeb / .Mac service, which is very nice and integrated (and actually a very cool package overall). I've also got his domain registered with Network Solutions. What I want to do now is: 1) Host his domain at TCH for the domain's email, additional web storage, etc. 2) Either redirect his domain to his .Mac we
  3. Never mind... I figured it out. I found the entry that had been created under email filters.
  4. Hi - I've been experimenting with SpamAssassin setup. I clicked the link that says "To simply have the server DELETE and NOT deliver emails that are tagged as spam by SpamAssassin, click here now." I clicked there just to see what the results would be. Some sort of script is executed and a filter is created. Okay...nice to know...but I don't wanna do that. So I go back to the main SpamAssassin page, and...there's no way to undo that setting... So how do I reset that? I disabled SpamAssassin, then re-enabled it, thinking that would put it back to normal, but I think the setting is still
  5. I received an email addressing a specific issue with Movable Type, which is not applicable to me. Then I received the email I described in my other post here. If there was a 3rd email, I didn't get it. -Bryan
  6. I appreciate TCH's concern as well, but... ...I do not apologize for being agitated by it. The email was vague, threatening, and generally completely unhelpful to the situation. I responded in a separate thread before I was referred to this thread. I obviously wasn't the only one who was surprised by the tone of the email. I am bothered by how many TCH support people responded to this thread defending the statement when it should have been retracted or clarified immediately. It seems like overall, TCH is having some problems with a fraction of its customers running unsecure sites, and t
  7. Done! So what is Front Page for anyway? Do I need something special on my end to use it? -Bryan
  8. Yikes, I just read the uninstall warning... I don't recall ever installing the Front Page extensions? Would these have been installed related to phpbb or osCommerce installs that I did? I'm running osCommerce (TCH install and my own manual custom install), phpBB (TCH install) my manual install of phpNuke, and...that's it. Do I need Front page extensions? Is that right that I have to backup every single .htaccess file on my site before uninstalling?
  9. Ok - I figured out the above. But I have a different htaccess question. Anybody know what this is doing in my htaccess file? (I changed domain and username to make it generic for this public post). AuthName www.domain.com AuthUserFile /home/username/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.pwd AuthGroupFile /home/username/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.grp Thanks! -Bryan
  10. Hi - in the Cpanel index manager, it the server writing those settings to a .htaccess file, or are these settings stored somewhere that I can't edit manually? If I have an .htaccess file at the root of public_html that has this in it: Options All -Indexes DirectoryIndex index.php index.htm index.html Doesn't that restrict directory listings? And if I have that, then I can just turn all the Index Manager settings off...? Thanks, Bryan
  11. Hi, What is the format that I should use for allowed URLs for the "Hotlink Protection" feature in Cpanel? ie - in the allowed URLs field, would I enter: http://www.domain.com or http://domain.com or perhaps just... domain.com Thanks! -Bryan
  12. Ok, I think we're on the same page. But to be sure, I would want domain#2 to point to the same folders that my current domain points to, and have the same redirected subdomains as domain#1. Like this: www.site#1.com -> home/html/portal/ www.site#2.com -> home/html/portal/ store.site#1.com -> home/html/oscommerce/ store.site#2.com -> home/html/oscommerce/ forums.site#1.com -> home/html/phpbb/ forums.site#2.com -> home/html/phpbb/ etc... Cool?
  13. Hi Don -- I didn't see anything about an AUP on that link you posted except a post that subdomains are allowed for any use other than resell. But...anyway...what I posted, you're saying it won't cost me anything, I just submit the domain via help ticket and TCH sets up the DNS and I'm ready to rock? Yes? If so, then...

  14. Hi - I'm bumping this thread up and posting here because it is relevant to my question. I've searched the forums high and low and I'm still not quite clear on the specific policy for what I want to do: Domain #1 - mysite#1.com -- this domain is currently hosted with TCH and under construction. mysite#1 is my existing company name. There will be some traffic to this domain because people already know my company name. Now, keep that in mind for a sec... - www.mysite#1.com -- the main portal (with links to store, forum, ads, etc) - store.mysite#1.com -- the web store - forums.mysite#
  15. Hi, I have a question re .htaccess and mod_rewrite Apache directives: It is my understanding that .htaccess files, and complex 'mod_rewrite' directives embedded in .htaccess files can put a lot of performance strain on a server and that it is much better to put all of these commands in the Apache httpd.conf file. I plan on implementing this: http://www.phpnuke.org/modules.php?name=PH...=googletap.html ...so that all my phpnuke dynamic pages have static page URLs so I am compatible with search engines. So what is possible with virtual hosting? Would this be something that I
