Which version of Exim is SpamBlocker compatible with?

Which version of Exim is SpamBlocker compatible with?

Or more specifically, what’s the last version of Exim known to be 100% compatible with Spamblocker? Is the very latest version compatible (with a little gentle manual compiling) or does the latest version bring changes not yet compatible with the most recent version of spamblocker? I’m running Exim 4.69 on our VPS but I note that it’s currently at 4.80.1; the codebase has also undergone some fairly significant changes apparently but DA devs haven’t provided an out-of-the-box working build for…

[BUG?] Apache 2.4.3 with php5.4.10 (php-fpm) -> images loading partially

[BUG?] Apache 2.4.3 with php5.4.10 (php-fpm) -> images loading partially

Hello, since we’ve switched to the new CustomBuild 2, there is one issue that we can’t resolve. In some situations the content-length is incorrect, which causes images to load partially. When we reload the page with the images a few times, they load completely. We suspect a problem with the Apache mod_deflate/gzip (compression, right?) module, but disabling this in httpd.conf does not make a difference. (Commenting out the whole ‚Include conf/extra/httpd-deflate.conf’ part) How can we resolve this issue? Do other…

How move user account to other server (problem with Admin Backups)

How move user account to other server (problem with Admin Backups)

Hi I need to move from VPS one user account to dedicated server. But I can’t backup it using Admin Backup/Transfer. As my VPS has only 20G space, but this user account using more than 9G. How I look, how DirectAdmin backups its accounts – first makes copy from account to /tmp and then wants to copy it to /backups and from there transfer it to another server. But I don’t have space for that. So I am getting error:…

Backup MX server

Backup MX server

Hello, I am attempting to setup a second VPS with Directadmin as a backup MX server in case our main server goes down (it’s been having a lot of problems lately!). My thoughts are setting up rsync to synchronize the local domains and users to the backup server, say maybe every hour, or 15 minutes or so. In order to make that work, can I just rsync the entire /etc/virtual directory and restart exim? Or would I need to set…

Exim dying, not sure why?

Exim dying, not sure why?

I have a VPS with Directadmin on it, and the server has been having some serious up and down issues lately. Every time it comes back up, Exim dies at least a couple times. The last time I found a log entry, something about not being able to read the delivery status. At any rate, I have a script that checks if exim is running, if not, restart. However, it doesn’t seem to be able to detect the fact that…

VPS licence

VPS licence

Is there a VPS licence available? Some forum topic hint that there is and some web hosts sell you a DA licence for as low as 5 USD per month, so there must be a cheaper option. As DA support has not asnwered my e-mails over a month now, maybe they can share this information here – if there is a VPS licence and to whom it is available. With zero communication from DA support, I have already installed cPanel…

Expand server’s hard drive

Expand server’s hard drive

Greetings, My host provider has recently upgraded my VPS’s limit to allow me to use 100GB of space instead of 50GB, but in DirectAdmin (and when logging in as root, df) it is still showing the 50GB limit. How can I update my VPS to display the new 100GB limit without breaking anything? With regards, Kevin

Disable generation of "Backup is ready" via Message System

Disable generation of "Backup is ready" via Message System

Hi, It it possible to silence the "Your Backup is Ready" messages in DirectAdmin? I have disabled email notifications but there doesn’t seem to be an obvious way to disable the actual notification in the message system itself. Is it possible to do this? I only ask as I run a daily cron scheduled user backup on a certain user on my VPS and keep one backup stored under the home directory for quick restore. (I use Admin backup for…

Hello everyone, Let me start by saying that my web-host advised me to re-install the VPS when I had this problem (it was an newly installed one so there was no problem with re-installing it). Therefore I can not give more information then what I will give in this post. I do not want an solution, just some pointer to what I could try if I get this problem again. After installing DirectAdmin on my VPS and migrating a domain…

Subdomain not available

Subdomain not available

Hi, I created a sub domain for one of my domains but I get the error ‚server not found’. I tried pinging it and network utility on mac gives the error: ‚can’t resolve’ ‚unknown host’. Before my vps I was using regular shared hosting and created sub domains on that hosting before, never had any problems. So I think I am adding them correctly. What might be causing this error?
