With the actual weather in Luxembourg, it's a nightmare to be a non-professional, trying to configure a VPS, when you have to sit with your laptop outside, in order to have Internet access. Nevertheless, the major part of my website is running, DNS issues resolved thanks to the help found in this forum, Perl CGI figured out by myself after some 6 hours of hard work. Today, I configured mail and my server receives emails, including emails with non existing accounts going to a default one. Sending emails seems fine, too. However:
- Has anyone an idea, what I must do to use webmail? With http://www.mydomain.lu/webmail, I get a "page not found" error (the same for https). To note that there is no webmail folder in my domain's web or mail directory. Have I to run some setup script for Roundcube, that perhaps creates this folder?
Another problem, that I have no idea how to solve, is awstats. Awstats is actually running, but is only accessible via http. In fact, it does not work with the alias, defined in the generated config, but with an alias I created myself.
- Is there some additionnal configuration to do, if I want to access the awstas pages with https? And why, when accessing it with http, the pages are immediately displayed, with a "basicauth/require valid user" set for the awstats directory?
Forgive me for asking, concerning sth that seems evident, but I'm not sure, because Hestia does lots of things automatically.
- When I changed my SSH port, the connection with PuTTY was timed out. May that be, because I have to open the new port in iptables? And if I change the port, have I to use the new port for secure FTP, too, or are these two things, that have nothing to do with each other?
Sorry, for all these questions, but the Hestia documentation is limited to some specific points and there are very few webpages, where I found some usefull information. Thanks in advance.
This is not a specific issue but a general question. Is there a way to manually reboot my HelioHost VPS without contacting customer support?
I know I can just type reboot in the console to have it restart, but I'm talking about cases where the command line is inaccessible, for example because of high load or an out-of-control process (which happened to me recently). It would be nice if there was some way to expose the vmware commands for a hard power-on/power-off—not that I would use it much, but it'd be a safety net I'd know was there if something went wrong.
My VPS has slowed to a crawl for the past 8 hours: it started taking time to respond, and now all SSH and HTTP connection attempts are timing out: the only way I know my server is still alive is through a ping. I've seen this happen for short stretches before, but this is the first time it's been down for so long.
Could someone check if this is a problem specific to my server or an issue across all VPSes? The only unusual thing I did today was to try upgrading wallabag (which is a PHP app) on YunoHost; the upgrade failed early because of some connection issues so I think the problem was already there before.

Thanks in advance!
Folks, I'd like to know if I'm doing this right:
I've just acquired a domain at Freenom (sitesfy.tk) and there in the DNS zone configuration I'm pointing there (data above). Is that all? How will your system know which site it's pointing to, as there are a lot of sites in your shared server. Isn't the IP necessary? Thanks.
