As closetnoc says, you don't necessarily need to reinvent the wheel. However, there can be some benefits to your own logging if that is the route you want to take (and you have the time). Anyway, to answer some of your queries... Does it [apache_request_headers] work for apache only? Primarily yes. It isn't available on IIS for instance. However, as ...

I am not answering your code question directly based upon your comments. I think I understand what you want. I feel that you can be better served if I go in another direction. I hope you don't mind. Why recreate the wheel? Most people use Google Analytics though there is some confusion over the data from time to time. It is free. Two excellent options are ...

I can't find any reliable host with no limit on inodes on there VPS plans. I was having this inodes problem on Hostgator and in-fact they have very low inodes limit if you are a reseller and hosting multiple sites. So after researching a lot I decided to go with Known Host which also has inodes limit but that is really very high and with different VPS ...

I am using network-tools.com will that make a difference? Yes, network-tools.com is in the US! When you do a trace on that site it is performing a trace from that server (in the US) to your server (in the UK), not from your machine to your server. To check the trace from your machine (in the UK), you need to run a trace tool on your machine.

The inode limit is only set on things such as reseller/shared hosting. If you have a VPS you can expect to be limited to around 1,000,000 inode and if you have a dedicated server you should be limited. However as you know, this will cost more depending on your needs. They have to limit the inodes, if they didn't limit this you would be looking at "unlimited ...

For a lot of small file transfers SDD would be a massively faster. SSD's are still less reliable than regular drives in terms of life span

Yes, it's a good marketing technique that has advantages for you if you actually need it. If you are doing a lot of disk access, then SSD's provide a real advantage, especially if you have a lot of traffic that generates those disk accesses. But most servers run on hardware that can handle regular HTML traffic with ease in which case spending extra for SSD ...

It has been a while since I looked into solid state, but I will give you my experience based upon the device drivers I wrote years ago. Generally, it depends upon the hardware, the I/O channels, and the software driver. Just as there are slower hard drives there are slower solid state drives. Back in my device driver days, back when Digital was king, the ...

You can either achieve (customize) that from a basic bootstrap template for your favorite CMS (because this kind of design is very basic and common), or pick a template like Strapped (really basic, require some work), or Creative, MeetGavern, or Simplicity, from GavickPro (www.gavick.com) for Joomla.

These three websites doesn't have a particular template for code. This is not because they have a similar rendering (full screen rendering...) that they use a template like a CMS or something else.

Most of the domain registrars provide this feature. You can manage your DNS records without hosting it. There is no additional cost for it and it can be managed from the dashboard of the provider. Before registering a domain, check with the Sales team if they provide with this feature.

I am a bit confused by the question. However I am assuming that your domain name is hosted within a DNS service and your site is hosted with another company. This is not uncommon. GoDaddy allows this just fine. You can host your domain name there and do whatever you want with the DNS settings. I do this. My site is not hosted. Just my DNS records.

Well its not your site, its China's internet service layout, which has to jump through hoops to get even get to US DNS Servers. Furthermore, I don't know how 'free' the Internet surfing is there, meaning if it's being monitored by the government, which would undoubtedly further slow its response times. Many factors can be attributed to your site being slow ...

How to test it? Just go to https://yoursite.com/, if it pulls up, it works!

The most robust method to make yourdomain.com or www.yourdomain.com return the 'host not found' error like the screenshots given, (and this works with HostGator), is the following process: Set the CNAME record for www.yourdomain.com to something that definitely is a domain that doesn't have a webserver attached to it, (i.e. a domain that completely doesn't ...

If you want the website's email to be functional & website when browsed to show a Not Found page, simply point the A record to a non route able address. MX & other records should not be modified.

I use both. You aren't going to get a better bang for a buck than Hetzner anywhere. They are solid as a rock. I'd still rely on a CDN for static content but aside from that, Hetzner is awesome. EC2 is a different animal. Use it if you have a superbowl ad or something. It's more expensive. It's also a little faster if you need to spin up new nodes. EC2 is ...

RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php?page=$1 [NC,L] This will result in a rewrite loop. You are also not capturing the sub pattern, so $1 will be empty. In order to prevent a rewrite loop, you need a get-out-clause, such as not rewriting when the request is already for index.php. Something like: RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/index.php RewriteRule ...

Subdomains can point to different servers. example.com is irrelevant to the user in this scenario since the user really will be at foundation.example.com and seeing files hosted at foundation.example.com. The DNS server points the user to the correct location, example.com doesn't point the user there. example.com's only role is to control access to ...

For non shared hosting, I would say Varnish will be your best option. It is a reverse proxy and cache content as well. This would result in improved performance of apache, reduce server load and would result in faster page loading times. There is an interesting discussion at Drupal regarding various caching options for it. In fact, most of them apply to any ...

Several of my web applications and web hosting provider uses Advanced PHP Cache, also known as APC, instead of Memcache. From my experiences of using both, APC has improved performance more. I would make sure to ask your web hosting provider if they are/can use APC.

It has been a while since I have had to do this so I am a bit rusty. Please excuse any errors. Here are some Apache documentation links: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/sections.html http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/vhosts/ Here are some other reousrces that seem to be good: ...

Thanks to closetnoc for leading me on the right path by mentioning sites-available. I used these two articles to solve it: http://wiki.gandi.net/en/hosting/using-linux/tutorials/ubuntu/virtualhosts http://twohlix.com/2011/05/setting-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-centos/

Simple answer. Hosts provide what is asked for and works best. It is a double-sided coin. Apache has been extremely successful and is stable and seasoned code therefore hosts don't have to work hard to support it. As you may know, Apache is one of the first successful web servers and serves the vast majority of web installations therefore it is asked for the ...
