Upon ordering a Dedicated Server or VPS you will receive one IPv4 address and one /64 IPv6 subnet. As an example, this could be the IPv4 address 192.51.100.10 and the IPv6 subnet 2001:0db8:2a02:c200::/64.

Your server comes pre-configured with this IPv4 (192.51.100.10) and one IPv6 address (2001:0db8:2a02:c200:0000:0000:0000:0001). Additional IPv4 addresses can be ordered by contacting us at support@contabo.com or through our homepage when placing an order for a new server. These additional IPv4 address will not be added to your system automatically but will have to be configured manually.

The following will give an overview on how to configure additional IP addresses on the most popular operating systems. The server used in these examples has the primary IPv4 address 192.51.100.10 and will receive the additional IPv4 addresses 192.51.100.42 and 192.0.2.23. As a general rule we recommend configuring these addresses with a netmask of 255.255.255.255 (/32) and /64 respectively and without adding a new gateway.

CentOS 6.x

CentOS has all its network interface configuration files stored in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/. In order to configure additional IPv4 addresses, one virtual interface per additional IPv4 address has to be created. If the main interface is e.g. eth0, the virtual interfaces would be named eth0:0, eth0:1, eth0:2 and so on. Their configurations reside in individual configuration files named ifcfg-eth0:0, ifcfg-eth0:1, ifcfg-eth0:2receptively.

#/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:0
DEVICE=eth0:0
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
IPADDR=192.51.100.42
NETMASK=255.255.255.255

#/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:1
DEVICE=eth0:1
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
IPADDR=192.0.2.23
NETMASK=255.255.255.255

Additional IPv6 addresses can be specified using the variable IPV6ADDR_SECONDARIES in the interface’s primary configuration file (/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 in case of eth0). Multiple addresses are separated by a white space:

#/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
...
IPV6ADDR_SECONDARIES=2001:0db8:2a02:c200:0000:0000:0000:0002/64 2001:0db8:2a02:c200:0000:0000:0000:0003/64
...

CentOS 7.x / Fedora

The network interface configuration files of both CentOS 7.x and Fedora are stored under /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/. Additional IPv4 addresses can be added to the respective interface’s configuration file by using variables of the pattern IPADDR0, IPADDR1, IPADDR2 and PREFIX0, PREFIX1, PREFIX2 etc., in case of e.g. eth0 this would be /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:

#/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
...
IPADDR0=192.51.100.42
PREFIX0=32
IPADDR1=192.0.2.23
PREFIX1=32
...

The old method using virtual interfaces as employed in CentOS 6.x and described above will also still work.

Additional IPv6 addresses can be specified using the variable IPV6ADDR_SECONDARIES in the interface’s primary configuration file (/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 in case of eth0). Multiple addresses are separated by a white space:

#/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
...
IPV6ADDR_SECONDARIES=2001:0db8:2a02:c200:0000:0000:0000:0002/64 2001:0db8:2a02:c200:0000:0000:0000:0003/64
...

Debian / Ubuntu

Debian’s and Ubuntu’s network interface configuration is stored in /etc/network/interfaces. Additional IP addresses can be assigned by using the up/down commands. The following adds 192.51.100.42 and 192.0.2.23 to eth0 whose primary address is 192.51.100.10:

#/etc/network/interfaces
auto eth0
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.51.100.10
netmask 255.255.255.255
gateway 192.51.100.1

up ip addr add 192.51.100.42/32 dev eth0
down ip addr del 192.51.100.42/32 dev eth0

up ip addr add 192.0.2.23/32 dev eth0
down ip addr del 192.0.2.23/32 dev eth0
...

Additional IPv6 addresses are configured similarly:

#/etc/network/interfaces
...
iface eth0 inet6 static
address 2001:0db8:2a02:c200:0123:4567:89ab:0001
netmask 112
gateway fe80::1
accept_ra 0
autoconf 0
privext 0


up ip -6 addr add 2001:0db8:2a02:c200:0000:0000:0000:0002/64 dev eth0
down ip -6 addr del 2001:0db8:2a02:c200:0000:0000:0000:0002/64 dev eth0
...

openSUSE

openSUSE has its network interface configuration files stored under /etc/sysconfig/network/. All settings concerning e.g. eth0 are saved in ifcfg-eth0, additional IPv4 and IPv6 addresses can be added using the pattern IPADDR_1, IPADDR_2, IPADDR_3 etc:

#/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0
...
IPADDR_1='192.51.100.42/32'
IPADDR_2='192.0.2.23/32'
IPADDR_3='2001:0db8:2a02:c200:0000:0000:0000:0002/64'
IPADDR_4='2001:0db8:2a02:c200:0000:0000:0000:0003/64'
...

Windows Server 2008, 2012 and 2016

Open the “Network and Sharing Center” and click on “Local Area Connection”.

In Windows Server 2016:  Open the “Network and Sharing Center” and click on “Ethernet”.

ws2008_01

In the newly opened windows, click on “Properties”.

ws2008_02

If you want to add an additional IPv4 address, select “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” and click on “Properties”.

ws2008_03

In the newly created windows, click on “Advanced…” and in the following one on “Add…” under “IP addresses”

ws2008_05

Enter the new IP address and its netmask into the dialog and then click “Add”.

ws2008_06

The new IP address is now active.

ws2008_07

IPv6 addresses can be added similarly by selecting “Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)”:

ws2008_08

ws2008_09

ws2008_12

ws2008_13

Being the tech-savvy crowd you are, we figure you use most or all of the standard Windows hotkeys, such as Ctrl+C for copy. It’s also probably safe to assume that you break out the command prompt once in a while. Despite being used almost exclusively by experienced users, the command line is frustratingly incompatible with the most basic key combinations.

Plenty of our tips require you to enter text in the command line, some of which can be a real pain to enter manually. To paste text, you either have to right click in the window for a context menu option, or more annoyingly, hit Alt+Space > E > P. Instead of pasting text, the usual Ctrl+V keystroke gives you ^V.

But there is a quick trick to do in CMD.EXE that can speed up copy/paste in many cases. If you don’t know it yet, read on… Say that a tool outputs some text containing a “word” (i.e. a sequence of non-space characters). You want to copy this word as one of the parameters to the current cursor position, while you are editing the next command. The trick is surprisingly simple and it takes less than one second to master: move your mouse over that word, then double-left click, followed by double-right click. That’s it.

How does this work? The first double-click on the left mouse button will select the word at the mouse cursor position. Then, the first right-click will do the “Copy” (since you do have some selected text). But the text becomes automatically deselected. Then, the next right click will Paste the selected text from the clipboard at the current cursor. In the end, double-left click plus double-right click does the job.

Warning: Note, however that you must have “Quick Edit” enabled. This facility is disabled by default, but you can enable it by opening the Properties dialog in the CMD.EXE system menu (Alt-space, select Properties), then go to the Options tab, and check “Quick Edit Mode”. It migth be useful to repeat the same setting in the “Defaults” entry in the system menu such that every CMD.EXE window will have Quick Edit enabled from now on. And, if you prefer an equivalent command-line method of changing the Quick Edit default setting, here it is:

REG.EXE add HKCU\Console /v QuickEdit /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Receiving email messages multiple times when you are using Outlook to receive your emails. This is commonly:

1. Receiving each email message 2 or more times,
2. Receiving the same messages over and over again each time you send and receive.

Trouble Shooting

You can log into your email account with Web Mail and verify that the messages are in your mail box only once, not multiple times.

If the email message is in your inbox only one time, but you are receiving multiple copies, then your mail program must be downloading the same message more than once (as opposed to the message being in your mail box more than one time).

Problem Resolution

A POP3 mail server, which you download your email from, does not decide which pieces of mail you download. This is determined by your mail program (such as Outlook or Outlook Express).

Here are four common reasons why you might receive duplicate email messages, with brief explanations and resolutions. They are listed here in order of most common to least common.

  1. If you have your e-mail client set to “leave messages on the server” then Outlook has to remember what messages it has downloaded. The server does not “remember” which message you downloaded, which is why you can download messages at the office, leave them on the server and download them again at home. If the server remembered which messages had been downloaded, then they would not download again to another machine. Each instance of Outlook on each machine must “remember” what it has already downloaded.In order to remember which messages it has downloaded, Outlook keeps a list of the “message IDs” for the messages it has downloaded. When it checks for new messages, it gets a list of all the message IDs on the server, compares it to the list or message IDs it has downloaded, and requests the messages it does not have.If the list of downloaded message IDs becomes corrupted, which is common especially when that list gets long, Outlook will “lose track” and start downloading all messages over and over again.

    RESOLUTION: Un-check “leave messages on the server” and then “Send and receive” to get the mailbox cleaned out. You can then re-check it. We suggest you only leave messages on the server for 10 or 15 days, depending on your mail usage.

  2. An email message can get stuck in your inbox on your server. This can cause your send / receive session to terminate without updating your list of received messages, or without deleting received messages from the server.Messages can get stuck when; (a) they are corrupted or crafted to contain special characters that cause your mail program to terminate, (b) large messages take so long to send or receive that your mail program starts another send / receive process before that last is completed, or (c) large messages take so long to send or receive that you interrupt the process before it’s complete.

    RESOLUTION: Log into your mail account with Web Mail and move the messages in your inbox to a temporary folder. Then start moving messages back to your inbox one or a few at a time, and downloading them to Outlook until you find the message causing the problem. Manage problem messages in Web Mail, and move them to a temporary folder or delete them.

  3. Your e-mail client is automatically checking for new e-mail, too often. Some users have their e-mail client set to check as frequently as every minute. Checking more frequently than every 10 to 15 minutes can result in the next check beginning before the last one has ended. When that happens, the index file of the e-mail client will no longer be synchronized with the e-mail server, resulting in multiple copies of the same message. Do the following to correct his issue:

    RESOLUTION: Change the setting of your e-mail client so that it automatically checks for new e-mail no more frequently than every 15 minutes. You can manually force a check if needed, but be sure the last check has completely finished.

  4. Another e-mail client may be checking the your mailbox while the you are checking it. There are hundreds of free/shareware/ActiveX controls/Java applets that can check mailboxes for new messages. A quick check shows that ICQ, 3 different freeware utilities, AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo and Netscape Notified all start POP sessions to check for new mail. All could cause the same results with either POP or IMAP or with mail left on the server. The best solution is not to use these utilities. One can also cause the problem by using Web Messaging while another e-mail client is logged in to the same mailbox.

    RESOLUTION: Use only one program to check your mail box ant any one time.

These instructions create a “POP” connection using SSL security. If you prefer to create an “IMAP” connection, see our Outlook 2010 IMAP settings page instead.

Before you continue, you should enter your e-mail address (the address you want to set up in Outlook) in the box above. Entering your e-mail address makes sure that the instructions below are correct.

1. Start the Microsoft Outlook program.

Use the Start menu to start Outlook 2010. If you’ve never used Outlook before, it will prompt you to create a new account. In that case, skip ahead to step 2.
outlook_2010_add_account

If you’ve previously used Outlook and it doesn’t prompt you, click the File tab, then the Add Account button:


2. The “Auto Account Setup” screen appears.

When this window appears, leave the spaces empty, choose the Manually configure server settings or additional server types option, then click Next.

3. The “Choose Service” screen appears.

Choose Internet E-mail, then click Next

outlook_2010_choose_service


4. The “Internet E-mail Settings” screen appears.

This is the window where you’ll enter most of your account settings. You want the window to look like this:

more-settings

Below is a description of the fields:

Option Description
Your Name Enter the name you want people you email to see, such as: John Smith
Email Address Enter your full email address, such as: username@example.com
Account Type Choose if you want to use POP or IMAP. By default, POP downloads and removes your emails from the server, while IMAP leaves them on the server. Here is a link to an article that explains the differences in more detail. In my tests, I am setting up a POP account.
Incoming mail server
Standard settings: mail.domain.com  (Replace domain.com with your actual domain)
SSL Settings: secureXX.inmotionhosting.com (Replace the XX with the numbers from your server name)
Outgoing mail server (SMTP) Standard settings: mail.domain.com  (Replace domain.com with your actual domain)

SSL Settings: secureXX.inmotionhosting.com (Replace the XX with the numbers from your server name)
User Name  Enter your full email address, such as: username@example.com
Password  Enter the password you for this email address.
Remember password  I recommend checking this box, so Outlook will save your password.
Require logon using Secure Password Authentication Do not check this box.

5. View “More Settings”.

Click the More Settings button. A new “Internet E-mail Settings” window appears.


6. Choose the “Outgoing Server” tab.

In the “Outgoing Server” tab, check My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication and make sure Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected:

outlook_2010_outgoing_server


7. Choose the “Advanced” tab.

Click the “Advanced” tab, then:

Enter your settings, below is a description of the available options.

Option Description
Incoming Server
Choose your preferred settings, below are the available options.
Standard (POP3): 110
Standard (IMAP): 143
SSL (POP3): 995
SSL (IMAP): 993
This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) Click this if you are using the SSL option.
Outgoing Server
Standard: 25, 2525 or 587
SSL: 465
 
*Often times, ISP’s will block this port for use with their email. You may want to consider using port 587, or the secure settings.
Use the following type of encrypted connection:
Standard: None
SSL: SSL

8. Close the “Internet E-mail Settings” window.

Click OK to close the “Internet E-mail Settings” window. The “Add New Account” screen will still be visible.


9. Test the settings.

Click Next. Outlook will test the settings, then should tell you that “all tests completed successfully”:

done

If Outlook tells you a test failed, double-check to be sure you’ve entered the settings correctly.


10. Finish the wizard.

If the “Test Account Settings” window is still open, click Close to continue.

Click Finish to finish the wizard.

Outlook setup is complete

You’re finished! Try sending yourself a test e-mail message to make sure it works.

In the FileZilla menu go to File > Site Manager. Then go through these 5 steps:

  1. Click New Site.

One question that comes up regularly is “How can I move my existing Joomla/wordpress site to your servers?”. This can be achieved relatively simply in 3 steps.
1. Upload your existing Joomla site files to your hosting account.
2. Export (or dump) your existing MySQL database, then create a new database and import the data.
3. Change your Joomla configuration settings.

This tutorial will focus on the process of exporting/importing the MySQL data.

Requirements.

1. You will need to have phpMyAdmin available on both the development site and the live site.
2. A web browser, preferably Firefox or I.E. as there are reported instances that phpMyAdmin and/or the gzip compression may have issues with Safari on Mac.

Making a MySQL dump from the 1st site.

Log in to phpMyAdmin for the site you wish to export the existing MySQL data from, in this example “joom2″.
Choose the database you wish to export from the drop-down list on the left.
Select “Export” from the top menu.
Click “Select All” so that all tables in the database are exported.
Select “SQL” as the export type.
The rest of the settings can be left at default as shown below

Select “Save as file” and “gzipped” then hit “Go”

A pop-up window will open in your browser, select “Save to Disk” then click “OK”

You now have a MySQL dump of your 1st site’s Joomla database.

Importing the MySQL dump from the 1st site to the 2nd site.

Before the data can be imported, the database must be created and user privileges assigned to it

Login to your Version-next account cPanel by pointing your browser to http://yourdomain.com/cpanel where “yourdomain.com” is your real domain name. You will then be asked for a username and password (this information is supplied in your welcome email).

Now that you have logged into cPanel, click “MySQL Databases” from the list of options.

Create your new database by entering the name (in this example “joom3″) and click “Add Database”

Now we need to create a user that can be assigned to the database. Enter the username and password you wish to use then click “Add User”

Next add the new user to the database by selecting the user and the database from the drop-down lists, tick “All” privileges and click “Add User to Database”.

Now that we have created a new databse and added a user with privileges we can import the dump file from the 1st site.

From your cPanel main page click “phpMyAdmin”

Once in phpMyAdmin select the new database we just created (joom3 in this example) from the drop-down list on the left. Select “Import” from the top menu and browse for the dump file downloaded from the 1st site. Click go to start the import process.

Once the import process has been completed you will be shown a message that the import was sucessful and the number of queries executed.

Congratulations! You just completed your first successful Move/Export of Joomla’s mySql DB to a new server via phpMyAdmin
