  1. Thank you for the link. That worked - with some little problem. In fact, after having done the PayPal transaction, the message "Something went wrong" was displayed. Repeating the procedure was successful. However, it seems, that not only this second time, but also before, a payment was made. Thus it is possible that there have been 2 payments. If this is the case, please, consider one of them as the 6-months subscription renewal and the second one as a donation (that you earn, without any doubt). Transaction number is I-WUMPHGGH8CVT. If there are 2 payments, the second one may or may not have the same transaction ID, but certainly has the same associated email. Thanks for your kindness (despite the heavy work you've had all this time with Plesk).
  2. Hi. My VPS (vps43) subscription will end in some days and I wanted to ask if I could pay for another 6 months renewal. Last time (in January) Krydos posted me a URL to use to do so. May I use it for the new payment, too? If not, could you, please, post me a new one? Or, does it work to just make a payment via PayPal, indicating that it's for my VPS? Sorry to bother you all 6 months, but as I do not pay myself, an automatic renewal, configured in PayPal, is not a real option for me. Thanks.
  3. It's really not an issue, but all annoying: When accessing a local HTTPS server with self-signed certificate, Firefox displays the "Security Risk" page and I have every time to allow access to my local Hestia CP. I searched the net in order to find a way to add a permanent exception to Firefox, but all the solutions, I found, did not work (maybe because I set Firefox to never remember history?). I posted in the Mozilla discourse forum, but, after weeks, no answer. Maybe there's someone of the great HelioHost community, who can help me. If not for Firefox, then maybe for another browser. Thanks.

    Plesk ETA

    It's these moments where I ask myself who's this perverse, who invented life. Why all misadventures and accidents of all kinds always touch those, who are kind and helpful and gentle with everyone? All best wishes for you and your father, Krydos. And courage for (all alone) continuation with Plesk setup.
  5. Hi. As I'll probably keep my VPS for a longer time, independently when Tommy with Plesk is ready, I want to learn more about sysadmin stuff. I have installed a virtual machine with Ubuntu 20.04 and the question, I want to ask before starting is: Is it possible to install Hestia CP on a local server and is the installation process the same as on my HelioHost VPS? Thanks for answering. Have a nice day!
  6. I guess that what you said about MySQL applies also to my local database server on Windows? What would mean when playing back one of my images and MySQL was running during this time, I could have problems with MySQL data integrity? Are there perhaps other services that have also to be stopped before taking an image?
  7. Thanks for the link. If I do not use a recurring monthly payment, that's simply because I haven't a bank account and have to ask someone else to make the payment; and I cannot ask other people to keep some automatically renewed payment open. The payment yesterday ended with a "something went wrong" message. As the payment has been done (PayPal ID is I-MEP0N44X11YV), I suppose that the error happened because you associated the link with my email and the email used to make the payment is the one of the PayPal account owner. Please, confirm me if everything is ok. If you need this other email, please tell me so and I'll mail it to you. Thanks a lot and ready to go for another 6 months with HelioHost. Why? Because, despite the little doubts I got as a result of all these C-Panel/Plesk problems, you are simply the best! 😍
  8. 1. I run SSH on a custom port. My sorrows, that someone tries to hack me on this port, are not justified, I think. If there is all this traffic, I suppose it's because of myself, doing file upload using ftps (i.e. using the custom SSH port). 2. So you think that Hestia needs access to phpMyAdmin? Limiting access to a given IP would of course be a solution, but having no own Internet connection and using public WiFi networks in the street, this is not really possible. 3. On Windows, creating an image of a shadow copy works fine and restoring the image does not cause any problems. Isn't there anything similar for Ubuntu server? Or should I backup the filesystem, databases, etc separately?
  9. Hi. The subscription of my VPS ends in 2 weeks. As Plesk on Tommy seems not be ready for then and considering to continue running my website on the VPS (runs smoothly for 6 months without any problem and the website is faster than it was the last months on Tommy before the C-Panel problem). 1. I suppose that making a new 6-month subscription would make it possible to continue running my VPS without having anything else to do? 2. What happens to old Tommy accounts having a VPS? Is the account and data transfered anyway to Plesk? If Plesk is ready, must I give up the VPS? If the VPS breaks, have I the right to immediately be back online with Tommy? All these questions, because I have to make a decision, how to continue. And even if there weren't any problems so far, I'm scared that something might happen. And if for example Hestia CP breaks down, I couldn't do anything to fix it, simply because I haven't the necessary sysadmin knowledge and coming back to Tommy would be the only thing, I could do, I guess. Concerning possible problems, I just made a post in the "Questions" forum: https://www.helionet.org/index/topic/50101-vps-security/ Happy New Year to the whole HelioHost team!
  10. Hello and a Happy New Year to everyone! Some questions concerning making my VPS more secure, as I think that there are actually people trying to get in. 1. If I disable SSH (via Hestia CP), I suppose I can re-enable it (same way) if I need it. But, what happens, if Hestia CP breaks down? No more possibility at all to access the VPS? Or is it possible that HelioHost may re-enable SSH and can log in to the VPS again? Would changing the port each week or so be a good idea? I ask this, because there seems to be regular SSH traffic, without myself using it. 2. For some weeks, there is lots of web access to url = /phpmyadmin (175 during December). I guess that that is someone who tries to hack my databases. How risky such trials are and what is the best I can do? Would it affect Hestia CP, if I renamed the phpMyAdmin folder? 3. In order to be sure to be somehow prepared if my VPS broke down, is there a (simple) way to take an image of the whole system? Thanks for any suggestions.
  11. I guess it's not as easy to find out, who these users are. I personnally think, that they should be banned from HelioHost servers. Using this great website hosting service for hosting code, that harms others, is extremely mean and unrespectful. Concerning the come back of Tommy, no guess? Before the end of the year? Beginning 2022?
  12. Hi. Some days ago, when I tried to access Hestia Control Panel on my VPS, access to the site was blocked by Malwarebytes BrowserGuard; message: Website blocked due to reputation. I wonder what the reason for this could be. My website, hosted on the VPS works fine, myvps.heliohost.us has no webpage on port 80, only Hestia on 8083, with password login of course. Thus, how Malwarebytes can find something suspicious on this web address? In fact, no real issue, but interested in understanding how these things can happen... Otherwise, my VPS runs rather perfectly. But, there is still the wish to return to Tommy... Has someone an idea, when Tommy with Plesk will be fully available?

    Is it the VPS that is down, or just your website? If you can ping the VPS, than the reason is probably that the webserver did not automatically restart. I had this problem, too, several servers not being running after the VPS had been shut down. Just check the servers and restart them...
  14. Hestia is not perfect. Failed to startup after auto-update to latest version (website continuing running). This morning (before reading this post), I noticed my website being down. On the other hand, Hestia was accessible again. As on your VPS some servers (nginx, apache, php and spamassassin) were down. Restart via Hest Control Panel ok... A problem with my site however: so slow, that you nearly can call it non-responsive (some php scripts are even timed out). Someone has an idea, what the reason for this might be?
