New Service: Server Recovery

As many of you may be aware we have always provided a cPanel server recovery service when asked. We have now formalised this service for anyone who needs it should they have OS disk problems:

  • Root compromise – if your server gets hacked and is therefore no longer trustworthy
  • OS disk failing – if the OS disk is starting to log errors indicating an immenent drive failure
  • OS corruption – if the file system is becoming corrupt
  • OS upgrade – if you want to upgrade from an old unsupported OS to a new one
  • Corrupt kernel – if you’ve upgraded the kernel and it has rendered the server unbootable of any kernel
  • Any situation which leaves your main OS disk unbootable

More details on the Server Recovery Service page.

Why you should use :fail: – addendum

I have added the following to the Why you should use :fail: page on our site:

Causes emails that will never be delivered onto the exim mail queue because checks such as sender verification are still carried out when processing such emails and if they cannot complete they will stay on the exim mail queue and repeatedly reprocess the email until it is finally discarded (usually 4+ days). This can cause very large mail queues full of spam which is repeatedly processed causing severe performance degradation
