Drive clients to your door with new OVH VPS & Dedicated Servers For WHMCS 1.1.0! | Proxies-free

1. OVH VPS & Dedicated Servers For WHMCS 1.1.0

Today, we are thrilled to bits to be presenting you with a new update of OVH VPS & Dedicated Servers For WHMCS. The up-to-the-minute 1.1.0 version is a true stepping stone in the development of this dual-purpose module – curious to find out why?

Primarily because now it will allow you to not only supervise but more importantly also deliver OVH dedicated servers to clients without leaving your WHMCS – the same way it is already possible for VPS. What they will also appreciate is the power to create snapshots of owned virtual machine and use them, later on, to either restore its settings or simply make a safety backup before introducing any changes. Apart from that, the module has been also armed with support for choosing an operation system license in the VPS configuration settings.

Raring to explore plenty of other compelling elements of this momentous release?

2. Heficed Case Study – EasyDCIM

Business automation and a bird’s-eye view on owned infrastructure are two best friends of each data center entrepreneur.

As the recent EasyDCIM interview with Vincentas Grinius from Heficed shows, the process of finding the perfect software tool that would allow a data center owner to manage all inventory parts from a single place is not always a piece of cake. It was only after they entrusted their business management to EasyDCIM that they finally found the suitable conditions to expand their IP addresses provisioning operations.

What encouraged Vincentas and his company to explore EasyDCIM tools and how did this benefit them in the long run?

restore – Android phone does not recognize that there is a backup in Google Drive

I have backed up my phone (LG G7 ThinQ) to google drive and I am trying to restore my app data. The problem is that when I go into the settings app under the backup and restore option, it tells me that there is no backup in the drive. I am running android 8.0 oreo and I was also running it when I made the backup.

I know for sure that I am signed into the account with the backup. I’ve tried resetting the phone and removing and re-adding the account but it still says that my drive does not have a backup.

What is causing this and how do i fix it?

germany – Do I need a vignette to drive in German motorways?

I will need to drive to Berlin soon (July 2020) and I’m trying to figure out if Germany requires a Vignette to use their motorways, like neighbouring Switzerland and Austria do.

This article seems to imply that this will soon be the case, but I can’t tell if this has already been put in place.

From what I read here, it seems like I won’t need it, but as this seems to be an open issue I would prefer some form of official confirmation. Is there any official German site that describes the current situation?

google drive – How to link a word to some part of my document?

Suppose in my Google Docs document I write the definition of a word.

5 pages later, I write that word. I want to be able to click in that word and the document take me back to the definition, written 5 pages before, just like Wikipedia does when you click in an element of the summary and it takes you down below to the description of that element.

Is that possible?

My files on my Google Drive disappeared but are still searchable and use up my quota?

Background: My Google account X was getting full so I tried to delete some files from the Google Drive part of the account. A and B are folders, X and Y are accounts.

I had a folder A on my Google account X that I tried to move to another Google account Y. To do this I shared the A with Y with the intention to remove A from X and store it on Y instead. I can’t recall all operations I performed and in which order but approximately something like this:

  • I made a new folder B on Y
  • Moved all files from the (shared) folder A to B (logged in to account Y)
  • Moved A, with all its content, to the Trash on account X and emptied the Trash

After doing this I realised that the files that originally were in A on X but now are in B on Y still were marked as shared, the owner of these files was set to X and that X was still full. However, I couldn’t find any of the files on X using the regular file browser but I could search for them and find them.

Normally, if you look at the info panel for a file there is a field that indicates its parent:

enter image description here

Even when you look at an item in the root folder you can see this

enter image description here

But in the case with the files that originally were in A, this is how it looks when I found them through searching in account X

enter image description here

Where are those files?

I can search for the files on X and delete them but there were a couple of hundreds of them so it is a PITA and it’s very likely that I won’t find all of them/by mistake find some files that shouldn’t be deleted and delete them.

I should also add that Shared with me is empty on Y.

permissions – Can’t edit mounted drive from VSCode

Context

I do programming on a) a Mac computer, and b) an Ubuntu computer running off a 1 TB HDD that I boot from the Mac via USB. This works completely fine. However, I have my code on a 16GB FAT32 partition so I can write code from both computers. This works fine on the Mac, but I run into a problem on Ubuntu.

Problem

In VSCode on Ubuntu, when I attempt to do anything to the mounted partition (edit, rename, create, etc.) I get some sort of error.

  1. When I try to create a new file: Unable to write file (NoPermissions (FileSystemError): Error: EACCES: permission denied, open)

  2. When I try to edit a file, I am prompted to “Retry as sudo,” which works, but I have to enter my password anytime I edit any file, which is extremely inconvenient.

  3. When I try to create a new directory, I get Error: EACCES: permission denied, mkdir

  4. et cetera

Details

I used sudo mount /dev/sda1 ~/src to mount the drive.

I am running Ubuntu 20.04.

My VSCode version is 1.46.1

Attempts to resolve

I tried the following:

sudo chmod a+rw ~/src

This above one doesn’t throw any error, but it doesn’t solve the problem either.

 In: sudo chown $USER:$USER -R ~/src
Out: "chown: changing ownership of '~/src': Operation not permitted"

When I tried these solutions, I unmounted and remounted the drive and restarted VSCode but they still didn’t do anything.

I also read the following related questions:

  1. Change folder permissions and ownership
  2. mkdir “Permission denied’ on mounted drive
  3. EACCES: permission denied in VS Code MAC
  4. Failed to save file, EACCESS permision denied
  5. Failed to save ‘file’: A system error occured (EACCES: permission denied, open ‘file path’)
  6. ERROR: “Failed to save. Insufficient permissions.” When trying to save changes in VS Code

Running VSCode as sudo does work, but this is rather tedious and, from all the warnings I get when trying to do it, I imagine it’s probably not a good idea.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and I am happy to answer any questions. Thanks!

windows – External Drive Accessible via USB Hub but not Directly

I have an SSD + enclosure that I am using as an external drive. When I try to plug it in directly into my Surface Pro, I get E: is not accessible. Incorrect function.. However, when I plug a usb hub into the same port, and then plug the external drive into the hub, my computer recognizes it fine. Some more things I’ve tried:

  1. uninstalled the device driver and restarted PC
  2. uninstalled the usb port driver and restarted PC
  3. rescan disks from disk management
  4. run chkdsk E: /f /r /x, gives me Cannot open volume for direct access
  5. changing the drive letter (drive letter changed, still not accessible)

More details:

  • accessible when plugged into my macbook pro
  • accessible when plugged into my desktop PC
  • the enclosure uses USB-C, my surface pro uses USB A
  • I’ve used the SSD a couple times already in a different enclosure, and the SSD is already partitioned into an exFAT partition and a NTFS partition
  • shows up fine in Device Manager as a disk drive, and correctly identifies the chipset
  • in Disk Management, doesn’t show up under “Volume” but still shows up as a disk (image below)
  • doesn’t show up in Diskpart command-line utility
  • it shows up in file explorer as a generic “USB Drive” (note that it should actually show up as 2 drives since there are two partitions)
  • this problem started while I was testing out 3 different enclosures. First one worked OK (but slow). Second one got really hot and caused the computer to freeze up, and on subsequent attempts to connect the drive, would go into a disconnect/reconnect loop. The third one is the one I’m currently trying to use, with issues described above. However I feel like the issue is not the third enclosure, since it’s brand new and works fine on other computers
