Proposals from Outsourcing Support Companies | Web Hosting Talk

Hi Guys,

Sorry in advance, if this is not the forum, but I would like to see some discussions and recommendations on this topic. I think the hosting industry has proven that it has some of the most affordable and effective outsourcing support companies.

I am looking for a team of few technicians for a 24-hour live chat support five days a week. These will not be for a hosting company but an android app service provider. In terms of abilities, it's easier than web hosting, because anyone who uses Android and likes to tinker with it should be able to handle the location. Things like restore Google backup, set up calendar entries, delete apps, buy a product, shipping time, etc.

The reason why I post here, and not in the area of ​​job opportunities, is that we have to cover this at a relatively low cost because the website they need to support is very small. Scalability is of course desirable if an unexpected traffic wave occurs. This makes outsourcing support companies a perfect candidate for the position.

The company concerned receives max. 30 Zendesk tickets per day, so you can guess how many chat requests there would be.

Let me know if you have any suggestions below>

Gentlemen, fall fashion, proposals

I'm not particularly interested in fashion, but I love everything about autumn. I have the best collection of men's shoes, belts and jeans, so I'm mainly looking for shirts, scarves, flannels, hats, etc. I do not like hoodies, but I think one or two would be okay. When it comes to colors, I look for red, orange and brown, basically autumn colors.

Apache 2.4 – Proposals to harden the system against PHP FPM proxy brute force

I recently (about 1 week ago) changed my Virtualmin system to PHP-FPM (MPM-Event) of CGI / FCGI (runs as Virtual Server owner).

OS = Debian 9
Apache = 2.4
php 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3
FPM = 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3
Virtualmin has just done an automatic update in the last 24 hours. However, when I checked the websites before going to bed, everyone was still running smoothly. However, I found that the paging file ran at almost 100% and the system memory was over 70% … so I started an Apache reboot before going to bed (which reduced memory usage to 27% and the file obviously again shifted to empty)

CPU usage is always pretty low … usually just a few percent or less (website traffic is usually very low)

This morning, all WordPress sites on the server were offline with the same error message

"503 service not available
The server is temporarily unable to process your request due to maintenance failure or capacity issues. Please try again later. "

All static sites on the server ran fine, an Apache reboot and a server restart did not resolve the error.

In the end, I switched Apache back to CGI / FCGI and the WordPress sites are back online.

Looking at one of Virtualmin / Virtual Server's WordPress logs (/var/log/virtualmin/domain.com_error_log), I notice the following entries (multiple times and very consistent …

I did an IP search for this IP address and found the following …

I would like to harden fpm and ask for suggestions on options?

I am also not sure why fail2ban does not care about this?

Visa – Double Chinese / British Travel from China via a Third Country to the UK – Proposals outside the EU

I am Brit, my wife is Chinese. Our children have passports for both countries.

Last year, we used Method Three from here to travel to a family in the UK.
Thread with dual nationality

Last year we managed to get visas for France for my wife and kids in their Chinese passports and also a visa for Great Britain for my wife.

We drove out of China with their Chinese passports (that's the only way the Chinese see the kids as Chinese) and arrived in France. Then we left France and flew to the UK, my wife used her Chinese passport to travel, and my children used their British passports to leave France for the UK.

This year we tried the same procedure. My wife was granted a French visa but the children were not. The reason for this is that they do not believe the itinerary provided with the application. The three applications were identical for the whole family, so we are currently trying to appeal this decision.

I am concerned that applying for a new EU visa while the first decision is still being challenged may not be seen in a good light.

Has anyone successfully traveled through an alternative third country?
