Re: Backup script stopped being able to write to my VDS

vsftp logs only show that the client is connecting, and that the login was OK.

Re: Backup script stopped being able to write to my VDS

Yes, I have a firewall, but stopping/disableing it makes no difference. Still get :Connection refused. Filezilla can log in with exact same creds.

Passive mode was not enabled, but even after enabling it connection is still refused. I have opened all the ports suggested elsewhere normally used when in passive mode - still no go. Very frustrating.
I forgot to mention FileZilla connects fine via FTP and passive mode, if that matters.

Re: Backup script stopped being able to write to my VDS

Was it after one of the system updates that it stopped working? Also, is it perhaps specific to that one backup file, or do other files also have the same problem? I don't know when it stopped working. I ran periodic updates remotely, but I have been out of town for most of the last couple months. ...

Re: Backup script stopped being able to write to my VDS

It is likely that performing the update of your system changed a setting for you in the FTP daemon, such as by disabling passive mode support. I would recommend taking a look at the change notes and also checking the configuration. Also worth making sure that AppArmor and similar mechanisms are not...

Backup script stopped being able to write to my VDS

I can not figure out what is causing it. Starting in July something happened so that I can no longer transfer my backups to my NFO VDS. I worked fine for years. The only thing i have done since setup is system updates. Nor have I made any changes to the script. Backups directory already exists Backi...

Re: VDS Gameservers with Webservers

IMO, unless you only have a static webpage or one with very few overall hits, you will probably be sorry if you run a web server and a game server on the same VDS. You should just get separate hosting or another VDS to use for web apps.

Re: Lost connection with database

Game server is in Chicago, I guess NFO hosting is in Seattle:

Code: Select all

Is NFO hosting only in Seattle?

Unable to update and upgrade 7 security updates

I am now on a 2-core VDS with Ubuntu 16.04 but unable to upgrade the latest security updates. It was working flawlessly yesterday before I up'd it from a 1-core to a 2-core. I tried several times and each time get the following.... Welcome to Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.4.0-116-generic x86_64) *...

Re: VPN Setup on new VDS

Not for gaming. I use it to get around Comcast's blocking of web servers for getting access to my owncloud server in my study when I am away from home. I only connect through VPN when I know I am going to be out of town for a whole day, or more. If anyone knows how to get an xfinity modem to forward...

Just was wondering because I am having trouble getting enough space in my boot sector to finish an update. I have tried all the suggested ways to remove old kernels without success. It is showing only the current kernel and the one that did not finish installing because of "not enough space". I am c...

/boot sector in a new 1-core linux VDS

Can anyone confirm that the file structure on a new VDS does not have a separate (way too small) /boot directory?
