Changing innodb_strict_mode Setting | Web Hosting Talk

Hi Folks

Need some advice if possible.

I have small reseller business and have been approached by a customer who wants to come on board with a large site but they need me to configure the database setting innodb_strict_mode = 0 from =1

What are the implications of setting this to ‘0’ and can this be done on a reseller unit at account level

One of my suppliers on request have already appeared to run to the hills on asking the question

Any simple advice to the above

Btrfs or ext4 | Web Hosting Talk

Btrfs or ext4 | Web Hosting Talk

var sidebar_align = ‘right’;
var content_container_margin = parseInt(‘350px’);
var sidebar_width = parseInt(‘330px’);

  1. Btrfs or ext4

    So, ive been old school many years and just found ext4 to be stable and long going. I just wondering peoples thoughts between it and BTRFS. Which you think gives you the most stable experience now. Currently still on Centos, but plan to change over to AlmaLinux. Why looking into it now is I have new ssds I am getting ready to change over the server to. It is currently ironically on BTRFS, but was not by choice as ironically back then I would of chose ext4.

Have fast response times but slow resolution times? Do you have to get “escalated” through support levels? Contact AdminGeekZ today to eliminate all of these issues.

Some examples of services we can provide,

If you run an e-commerce business, What would happen if your payment API/Gateway was down/not responding, would your present provider know? Have you planned for this eventuality? How would it effect your business and ability to take orders?

If you run a forum/blog, What would happen if an administrator/moderator account was compromised and all/large portions of your data was deleted? Would you have adequate backups to deal with this? What if you are away for the weekend or don’t notice for 48 hours? Would you be able to recover from backups?

If you run a facebook application, do you really have the capacity , knowledge and resources to deal with an increase in traffic? Do you know the cause of performance problems?

If you run a file sharing website, do you have the right balance of raw capacity vs performance? Are you able to cope with bandwidth usage?

If you run an ad network, Do your ads load within 1 second? What if a customer needs to add another 100 million impressions? How fast can you scale up for this? Do your monitor conversion rates, landing pages or partner networks?

No matter what type of business you run, AdminGeekZ can provide a solution to your infrastructure, server and management needs.

Recent highlights of work carried out,

– We recently engineered a solution for a file sharing application to take advantage of providers bandwidth offerings per server by introducing/removing systems from rotation based on present usage. This drastically lowered costs , improved performance and lowered system management requirements.

– We recently introduced a full, in memory, static html page cache for guests on a vBulletin forum to deal with a temporary extreme spike in traffic when no extra server capacity would be available for another 48 hours.

– We recently engineered a solution to allow a customer to take snapshots of their MongoDB installations to allow for data security, faster recovery times using a mixture of LVM and Replica Slave.

– We recently planned, implemented and deployed a full configuration management system using puppet for a large web host allowing for automated deployment of new systems, consistent configurations across the fleet and reduced support load due to having consistent configurations, saving hundreds of man hours per year.

– We recently engineered a solution for a directory indexing service which improved a performance, uptime and lowered their hardware costs by implementing a designing, building and implementing a new search solution based on sphinx for their application.

ModSecurity Comodo Free WAF | Web Hosting Talk


On an old WHM, I used to use Comodo free WAF as a Vendor for modSec on my WHM.

Now, I wanted to use it again on a new WHM.

However going into the Comodo website I can’t figure out how to get access to their WAF rules.

I have an account and I can’t found expired licenses for their COMODO Web Application Firewall … but after that point, I can’t find how to enable a new license and get all the information needed to add their rules on modSec.

Is COMODO Free Web Application Firewall still an option? If so, how to add it as a Vendor on WHM modSecurity vendors?

DirectAdmin vs cPanel/WHM ????? | Web Hosting Talk

I am currently using a VPS with cPanel/WHM and looking at changing my plan up with my hosting company and thinking of migrating to DirectAdmin to bring the annual costs down.

Right now Im hosting just under 30 sites (mostly joomla) and I dont anticipate it being much more than that, as my other business is making more money than web design these days and Im not looking for new web business as a result.

Im wondering if those of you that have made this transition can point out any issues, perks or things I should be aware of in making that change. If you are glad you did or regret it?

I have gotten onto DirectAdmins demo and it looks like the transition wont be that difficult as far as my using the new interface… my vps host will handle the changeover.

Any thoughts, heads up or warnings would be appreciated


ApisCP review | Web Hosting Talk

I was thinking of replacing a $70 VPS that I bought in 2017. Currently there is 1 reseller account and less than 150 accounts on the server, of which over 80 are inactive. I don’t remember when was the last time I created a support ticket with my server provider, and when required I am comfortable managing it myself. I rarely login to cPanel / WHM and was thinking of switching to a DirectAdmin Reseller hosting or an unmanaged VPS.

While reading about DirectAdmin, I came across ApisCP. I have seen a few users recommending it over DA in this forum, but most of the positive mentions are from the same users. Hence I wanted to know what other users thought about ApisCP.

The control panel does not have reseller accounts feature, so I cannot use it now. But they currently have a promotion selling lifetime license for $250. I was considering buying the lifetime license now, and switching to it when the Reseller feature is released.

– Is ApisCP comparable to DA in features / stability.

– Is it easy to do basic tasks like setting up a website, configuring DNS, creating database, creating backup, creating email accounts etc.

– Is migration from cPanel to ApisCP easy?

Epik has been hacked | Web Hosting Talk


We previously notified that on September 15, Epik confirmed a data intrusion involving its customers’ personal information. Though our forensic investigation is still ongoing, we can now confirm additional details of this intrusion.

What happened:

While we continue to investigate, we believe that on or before September 13, 2021, unauthorized third parties accessed a backup copy of Epik’s domain-side service accounts through one or more non-public servers.

What personal information may have been obtained:

Name, address, email address, username, password, phone and VAT number (if given), transaction history, domain ownership, and for a small subset of users, credit card information.

What we are doing:

As previously stated, we have retained multiple cybersecurity partners to investigate the incident, secure our services, help affected users, and notify you, law enforcement, and other relevant authorities. We are continuing to communicate with relevant authorities and other stakeholders as well.

At this time, we have secured access to our domain-side services and have applied additional security measures to help protect services and users going forward.

In addition, we will offer free credit monitoring until September 15, 2023, for all affected Epik users; more details on this free service will be made available soon.

Additional options for users:

1. Change your Epik password and enable two-factor authentication by visiting:…user-forgot-it

2. Call Epik Toll-Free at 800-510-3282 for further information and assistance.

3. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recommends that you place a free fraud alert on your credit file. A fraud alert tells creditors to contact you before they open any new accounts or change your existing accounts. This can be done by contacting any one of the three major credit bureaus:

Equifax: or 1-800-685-1111

Experian: or 1-888-397-3742

TransUnion: or 1-888-909-8872

4. Request a free credit report from each credit bureau after placing a fraud alert on your file. Review these credit reports for any accounts and inquiries you do not recognize, as they may be signs of identity theft. If your personal information has been misused, visit the FTC’s site at to report the identity theft and obtain recovery steps. Even if you do not find any suspicious activity on your initial credit reports, the FTC recommends that you check your credit reports periodically so you can spot problems and address them quickly.

5. You may also want to consider placing a free credit freeze on your file. A credit freeze prevents potential creditors from obtaining your credit report, making it less likely for an identity thief to open new accounts in your name. To place a freeze, contact each of the major credit bureaus using the links or phone numbers above. A freeze will remain in place until you ask the credit bureau to temporarily lift or remove it.

6. Visit, for additional resources and help to protect yourself from identity theft or call 1-877-438-4338.

7. Learn more about your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act here.

8. Contact your local Attorney General or local law enforcement to report suspected identity theft by filing or obtaining a police report.

Thank you for your continued support. We will continue to keep you updated.
