The error ‘Login to Proxmox host failed’ can happen in different scenarios:
- When you try to access the Proxmox VE management console directly
- While integrating a third party module such as WHMCS into your Proxmox server
- During the management of a cluster of Proxmox nodes
Over time and business growth, majority online businesses tend to require more server resources. Ensuring high uptime is also very critical. To accomplish this, Proxmox cluster with fail-over setup helps.
But setting up clusters, configuring fail-over, performing IP updates, etc. may require changing the IP address of the existing Proxmox server that was set initially. (more…)
By default, when an LXC container is created in Proxmox, it is assigned a single static IP to access it. Many a times, users require additional IPs in their containers.
Multiple IP addresses are required in cases such as multi-site WordPress hosting, multiple websites with SSL, high availability fail-over setup for services, network appliances like load balancer, etc. (more…)
WordPress hosting is hot, and if Google Trends is anything to go by, it’s only getting hotter with each passing day. Most web hosting providers now offer specialized WordPress hosting packages, and some even focus exclusively on WordPress hosting.
Magento is arguably the most popular eCommerce application, but its Achilles heel is performance. Sooner or later every webmaster finds their site to be slow, and look for Magento speed optimization methods.
The natural tendency for most webmasters is to upgrade server resources or buy expensive commercial software. But it’s only a temporary fix. Unless you identify specific bottlenecks, and fix them, you’ll continue to face performance issues.
Every webmaster in this world wants their sites to load fast, and never go down. But, many get dissuaded by seeing the high costs for enterprise grade high availability solutions or cloud hosting costs.
Well, what if you don’t have to spend a fortune to achieve high availability? (more…)
In 2010, Virgin Blue Airlines reported a $20 million dip in profit due to an outage in its online reservation system. Hardware failure was identified as the reason for the outage, but it caused severe damage to Virgin Blue’s reputation, customer loyalty and profit. (more…)
I like instant coffee. Why? Because its “instant”! No waiting around. Fast feels good, especially when it comes to using services such as telephone services, web hosting, etc. For instance, in VPS hosting, customers now expect their accounts to be provisioned as soon as they place an order. To make this possible, VPS providers are now increasingly turning to automated provisioning solutions. (more…)
“Noisy neighbors” are customers who use up more than their fair share of resources in a virtualized server. Such over-use of resources (aka resource hogging) affects server performance, especially if a VPS provider runs high-density servers. Though server virtualization provides cost-effective hosting, it involves sharing of resources such as CPU, RAM, I/O, network, etc. among the VPS accounts. (more…)
On 24th Sep, 2015, ARIN (IP registry for North America) announced that there were no more free IPv4 addresses. It meant that the already scarce IPv4 addresses became even more difficult to obtain. This prompted many web hosts and website developers to look at alternate solutions to host new websites. (more…)
