Subject description: ftp user backups
 

This message is for all ftp account holders on puppylinux.ca.

Please pass it on to other ftp users on .ca that may not see this post.

Please use your ftp account to backup ALL your files on .ca to be sure they are available to rebuild the repo in case my host boots me off Netfirms.

So far my host is not being helpful and I fear that my account may be shut down permanently. Thus to rebuild .ca with all current files a backup MUST be done ASAP.

The Florida servers were broken into and ALL files have been deleted for security reasons by admins.

puppylinux.ca files are still intact but a backup via each ftp user is needed to rebuild when I move or if I am shut down permanently.

Thanks all...and I'll keep at it to get a home for .ca....cripes

Eric

PS. When I said ALL files have been deleted on Florida I mean Apache,cpanel and all directories...thus there is nothing there but a finger print...grrr

Puppylinux.ca is now officially shutdown by my host.

This applies to http so ftp will work until December 21 2008...I hope anyway.

It's a very sad day for me and I'm very sorry that I lost control.

I'll continue to work to provide files when I can get a host that will take me on...this is not easy with my history of abusers.

Eric

Hi All,

I am forced to password protect puppylinux.ca.

user puppy
password linux

This still won't get files to open up for downloading but may get me some time to move.

Eric

EDIT: Please start to remove links to .ca when you find them. I would think that by the time I find a host all links ill also be dead...sorry all.

horrible news, but, because I have some files I don't have uploaded on dokupuppy:

http://puppylover.netsons.org/dokupuppy/doku.php

forum users (and all other puppians) can e-mail me at address:

dingodog@fastmail.fm

so, I I have files requested, I can put online for downloading. I don't have all files of .ca repository unfortunately

There is no way puppy can live without .ca, almost every .pet is there.

¿Exactly how many files do you have hosted? We may find some host that'll allow us to transfer files from ftp to ftp...


Even if it is free, it'll do, at least not to lose all files.

Darn... I thought I had some hosting but my droopdesign.net is on a free host and has a 1mb upload limit..

@dingo: Can't .ca's files be moved to doku??

Perhaps http://www.esnips.com/ could be a temporary solution, i'm checking it out.

Esnips isn't a good call, at all.

But please, do check www.electronicfiles.net .

Doesn't seem that bad ;(

Droope the spammer lol Razz

Big Thanks Dingo.

@droope,

I don't seem to have a choice...it seems some people from a country wants me gone and they seem to have succeeded..rats!!..for now.

There are thousands of files and the ftp users will be able to get them...then upload to a new server.

I have informed the Florida admin and he has offered space for us Puppy people at a discount (hey he has to run a REAL business you see).

We don't have the resources there to handle ALL the bandwidth as John is donating his server already..grrr....cripes he has done tons of work and for nothing so BIG THANKS to John at http://www.igsobe.com for all his work.

Eric

Subject description: can't get ftp access
 

Hi Eric,

Just tried to get to the TPP files on puppylinux.ca via ftp.
My ftp username and password don't function. Can you access the files as administrator or is the whole thing now inaccessible even via FTP?

Hope some sort of rescue operation is possible here.

I think I don't have enough space, but anyway, what total space is needed for total backup of .ca files?

Hi Dingo,

You will need at least 2.5gb for a drive(give or take a few gb's)..then 3tb for bandwidth..at least!!

Cripes.

Eric

EDIT: The abuse cost me way over 6545.92 GB and my host let it go for awhile..but not anymore

Hi darrelljon,

Well there was a mirror in progress until it was compromised via a password cracker...yikes it never ends.

This was cracked even though there was a professional security technician to install the controls...what the 'ell..

I'm on a hit list and there's not enough knowledge on my part to stop it...grrr..so far at least...I'll try to do better in teh future.

Eric

for a secure password on the top level maybe try something really lengthy with caps and lower case, plus numbers and symbols with a 30min time out after 5 attempts
lol hows this for one 2785sd382d5dsd38652386KHKHklhsodi767ydkhsdkys@#$%%##$kjhgkhdis8ud8666dkhdkwehkd676ikhwekw68686865GGJGFDHYYJKMKjutytt6752365653523
then what you do is just keep it locally on a encrypted hard drive and copy and paste it:) like who could remember a password like that ?
