  1. The donations do increase storage (disk space), but they do NOT increase the amount of CPU or RAM you can use without errors or getting suspended. We can't change the quotas at the moment that I'm aware of, so it's moot for now, but when cP was working, the space was $5 for 1000MB, and the maximum a user could have is 5000MB ($20, since the first 1000MB is free with the account).
  2. You can skip the setup entirely if it's already configured. The setup just generates that file. Just visit the root folder and sign in using your cPanel username and password. It appears to be working as I was able to log in and view my own DBs using it.
  3. The auth section of the PMA config.inc.php on lily looks like this, and it should work on Tommy too since the server is localhost there as well. There is no username or password line at all. Change the blowfish secret line to 32 random characters. /** * This is needed for cookie based authentication to encrypt password in * cookie. Needs to be 32 chars long. */ $cfg['blowfish_secret'] = '12345678901234567890123456789012'; /* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR COOKIE AUTH! */ /** * Servers configuration */ $i = 0; /** * First server */ $i++; /* Authentication type */ $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie'; /* Server parameters */ $cfg['Servers'][$i]['host'] = 'localhost'; $cfg['Servers'][$i]['compress'] = false; $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = false;
  4. There's a way to set it so it asks for username and password every time when you log into it. I'll take a look at my install when I'm at a computer for you and figure out the settings.
  5. Recurring donations are set up in Paypal. You have a paypal account since you have a recurring donation, and should be able to just update the credit card info in there. If for some reason you can't get into that paypal account any longer (for instance no longer have the email account for it and can't reset the password), set up a new paypal account and create a new recurring donation using the new card. Also, if you let us know what email address the OLD recurring donation is under, I believe we can cancel the old one on our end so you aren't donating twice.
  6. They will get banned when they get reported. Back when cPanel worked, phishing and malware was typically very easily spotted and banned within hours of being uploaded (we had developed custom anti-phishing software that caught the vast majority of these within hours) but that hasn't really been working since cPanel died, so for now we have to rely on abuse reports.
  7. I saw this last night as well on another subdomain, it's the parent domain heliohost.us that's being flagged by MBAM (flagging the parent also flags all of the subdomains, which makes sense because in most cases the content would all be controlled by one company/person, though it's not the case here...). It happens on occasion since users often host scams, phishing, malware, and related content here. All you need is some random user getting hacked and a phishing page going up...and all of a sudden our entire domain gets blocked. Easiest fix is to use your own domain with our service. Also, it's for similar reasons that people often have issues with the email on our shared hosting (when it worked...). Someone sends spam and the whole server gets blocked (though the fix for spam blocks is a dedicated IP instead of a different domain, since mail blacklists are IP based, not domain based).
  8. You literally just download it here, unpack it, and upload the files. https://www.phpmyadmin.net/downloads/ You may need to edit the configuration file (specifically the authentication options and the hostname, which should be localhost) as well.

    You can access your files via FTP right now if you wish, and if you need to edit databases you can upload Phpmyadmin and use that to administer them.
  10. It won't work on your computer. You have to upload it to your account (in a folder that's inside public html), then access it through your domain like any other script.
  11. The server returned and then died when the cPanel license was revoked back in July (cP decided to cancel the free licenses we've had for years and instead thought extortion was a better idea, they wanted $17k from us to unbrick our servers so we dumped them). We're in the process of replacing cPanel with Plesk (who offered free licenses to us), but that's not done yet. None of our servers have allowed unarchives or new users since July because cPanel no longer functions. Since your account was archived, the only option you have at the moment is to download your archive using https://www.heliohost.org/backup/ and either purchase a VPS (https://www.heliohost.org/vps/) until the shared hosting is available again, or find another web host. For more details about the cPanel disaster and Plesk migration, please see our News section: https://www.helionet.org/index/topic/44324-so-long-and-thanks-for-all-the-fish/ https://www.helionet.org/index/topic/44330-new-partnership-with-plesk/ https://www.helionet.org/index/topic/44555-plesk-transition-progress/ https://www.helionet.org/index/forum/1-news/ There is no ETA at this time for completion of this migration or when registrations or invites for replacement accounts will be offered again (archived accounts will likely be offered invites unless we find a way to import a cpmove file into Plesk).
  12. There is no file you can download via FTP. If you need the database as a file, you can use PhpMyAdmin to export it, which will produce a .sql file that you download in your browser.
  13. The account igorkr does not exist.
  14. There is no official ETA at this time. A few months is probably a reasonable guess. Currently, donors are slowly being moved as the new implementation is developed and debugged, with highest paying donors first. These donor migrations are basically beta users whose accounts are being used to test a migration script. Free users go last, and only after existing free users migrate will new users be accepted (we have to ensure there's capacity for all existing users first). We're currently working on the Tommy server, so that will be the first server to accept registrations when it finally does open. VPSes are the only option available at the moment. Many of our free and donor users bought a VPS to keep their site online during the Plesk migration, and if you do go the VPS route, we can assist in setting it up as well as moving you to shared hosting once it becomes available if desired. Some of our VPS users have said they plan to do that, while others have said they like the VPS better because they have full access to it unlike shared hosting and plan to keep it.
