Web Hosting requests, Site Help / nova 2.4 4 installation instructions
« Last post by The Commodore on November 01, 2015, 09:57:58 AM »
 I've taken some time to make up this pdf file to help those wanting to install nova onto their plesk site account.  Use Adobe Reader to open the file.  Those not hosted by SFUK may use this as a very rough guide.  As those with different hosting providers may not be using plesk as their control panel, different database engine and filesystem parameters.

If you'd like me to make up another instruction for something else like phpbb or a chat then just ask.

Because I can take advantage of the plesk software updates that the server provider verifies rather than ad hoc plesk updates from a plesk vendor that ruins customer control panels for them ending up in the server move that's in progress.  It's a simple thing, updating plesk based on whenever plesk releases updates would include phpmyadmin and php updates along with database updates.  This way round, I can backup databases and should be able to restore databases just the same....well with less difficulty.  As well as that, I get a better updated server and a faster one, depending on what's released.  The previous server had CentOS 6 to which I updated to 6.7 (final) and plesk was on V12.0.0 to which had periodical updates but would not update to V12.5.30 and then some inherent configuration file issue from an earlier update which corrupted the web files base meaning that users couldn't see their sites from their locations (whereas I could all the time).  Which leads me to the conclusion that the stock image from the server provider is the good and trusted one; any CentOS updates are also good and trusted but Plesk isn't which seems to be down to which repository it is picking up it's updates.  So on that note, that requires research that I haven't the time for right now.  But will later.  It will be kept alive whilst I find out where to make the changes, then subsequently deleted (why have a CentOS 6.7 when there's a fully working CentOS

If your site goes offline, it's because there's a server move take place but I'm forewarning.  Due to a periodical update of Plesk over the months; there's a rogue one that caused users not able to see their sites from their locality whilst I could see them all the time.  It was once reported by a member acting as a third party, a number of months ago but was unwilling to provide any diagnostic information or provide the details of the user that was suffering the problems.  Therefore I had to refuse them any support....however, this month, two users had approached with a problem and they were happy to provide diagnostic information which has now led me to this route of changing the server.  This will take a while to do but it should be seamless and you wont/shouldn't notice the changeover.  It is just a server change rather than a server hosting provider move.

Going forward from this, there will be server changes on a yearly basis or when the server provider makes a more significant change.  Server OS updates will continue but plesk control panel updates will cease and I'll run off the latest server install from the provider.  That's more trusting that doing automatic updates using on plesk.  But thank you for your patience and apologies to any users that have tolerated it and haven't said a thing or simply moved hosting sites.

I don't think users like logging their problems on a forum.  I get emails mostly.  Otherwise than that, people are either happy, gone inactive or changed hosts.

It doesn't bother me really.  The cost of running the server is minimal and I don't see it.

It's free, no ads and if new users want more then ask.  Of course if the askings are getting excessive and it'll start to cost then I'll make a decision when I get to it.

Users only need 300MB data, at most 2 SQL databases anyway.  I set up their site for them.  I've gone a bit beyond that and done nova skins, nova updates, put on themes for them.  Even then, they've asked and I've done it, no quibbles or ask for any money.

I'll continue to run this for free until trek simming dies.  It won't so I'll keep it up; I also host any other simming sites ie Babylon 5, done a Hogwarts and a police SIM.  Hence why I wanted to rename or add another domain to cater for the non trek sims.

Considering that hosts a number of simulations, I'm surprised there isn't more of a community!
Simm Recruitment Area / USS Marionette 2390

USS Marionette
Prime Universe - 2390 - Sovereign Class

The USS Marionette is recruiting talented individuals to take up posts on a Sovereign Class vessel, with a general directive over both Alpha and Beta quadrants to deal with the rising tensions in known space. After the events which lead to the destruction of Romulus, leading to a major set back for the Romulan Star Empire and also the disappearance of Spock, there has been a fundamental shift in the balance of power. The Klingon's whom signed the Treaty of Alliance and Second Khitomer Accords have been making greater strides to exploit the Romulan Star Empire weaknesses. With Federation interests in fostering peace with the Romulan Star Empire, relations with the Klingon Empire have soured recently causing skirmishes across the Federation-Klingon borders.

If you're interested in a ship with a complex and thought out foundation, then you could do worse than come to the USS Marionette. Let's write together!

We're an open ship, eager to listen to new ideas and new stories. We'll also help you get on your way to commanding your own ship if you're interested. If you want advice, have queries pr simply have an opinion then why not let us know?
