Hey there, folks! Today, we’re going to talk about the rather contentious subject of global variables in PHP. If you’re working with PHP, you’re probably going to run into them at one point or another – better you understand them right out the door, rather than having to learn them on the fly, right?
As a webmaster, you’re eventually going to deal with an abusive user (or several). It’s more or less an inevitable hurdle to doing business online. Maybe they’re spamming your comments section, flooding your server with requests, or harassing your other readers. Either way, you want to get them gone before they cause you any more of a headache than they already have.
Hey there, folks! Today, we’re going to have a chat about PHP – more specifically, one of the most important files in any PHP installation. I’m talking about php.ini. This handy little file is used for everything from installing php libraries to updating plugins to configuring your entire server – so it’s kind of important. And it’s also more than a little distressing when you can’t find it. Today, we’re going to go over a few tips, tricks, and methods you can use to locate your PHP configuration file when it isn’t where it’s supposed to be.Read More

This demo video is all about setting up a 301 redirect using cPanel. If you are looking to change domains names or simply combine URLs, using the 301 redirect will let you do so without losing all the benefits of your SEO efforts. If you’re using Plesk 10 and need to setup a 301 redirect check out our earlier demo video, here.

Today’s demo video is on a topic that can be a bit confusing to newcomers to mysql databases and cPanel. Although the task is not super difficult, it is important that you complete all the steps or it’s possible your database may not function as intended.
We have outlined how to create the mysql database using your cPanel hosting control panel and create a database user and associate that user with the newly created database. Sounds like a mouthful but it’s worth the watch.

Unlike Plesk, cPanel does not have a built-in email alias management tool. However, there are ways around this so that you can setup email accounts that act as aliases to different accounts. To do this, you will need to setup email forwarding in your cPanel hosting account. We have created a video tutorial taking you through the steps to setup email forwarding for any account on your domain.
Unfortunately, it is a couple extra steps when using it as an alias, but it gets the job done.

Removing an email address or email account is a fairly easy task. However, there are a few things you should be aware of before completely deleting any account. Mainly, if you are using IMAP as your email protocol, then all of your stored messages will be deleted as soon as you remove the account from cPanel.
If you are removing the account simply to rename it or change the email address, then make sure you have a backup of all the messages on the server in a local folder, as they will all be deleted once the account is removed.
Here is a demo video on how to delete an email address in your cPanel hosting account.
We’re proud to announce the addition of a brand-new data center to our expanding global network. After consulting with clients to determine where ServerMania should expand to next, we received overwhelming support for a location that can deliver clients with low-latency connectivity throughout the Asia-Pacific region, including New Zealand, Australia, and Southeast Asia.Read More
In 2016, the Amsterdam data center industry grew by 30%. In 2017, it expanded even faster, a trend that is expected to continue into 2018 and beyond. Due to this increased interest by our clients in Amsterdam, earlier this year, we announced the introduction of our Amsterdam data center to the global network of ServerMania data centers.
We’re proud to announce that ServerMania has two huge new additions to our hardware portfolio – Intel’s revolutionary Xeon Scalable Processors. Available immediately to our dedicated hosting clients, the Intel Xeon Silver 4114 and Xeon Gold 5118 will replace the Dual E5-2630v4 and Dual E52650v4. Let’s talk a bit about what this means – and how you might leverage our new tech for your own business.Read More
ServerMania, a leading provider of dedicated and cloud hosting, today announced the release of two new CPU models for its hosting clients – the Intel Xeon Silver 4114 and Xeon Gold 5118.
Intel’s Xeon Scalable Processors, codenamed Skylake, use a new Chipset known as Lewisberg. In addition to significant performance enhancements, these processors offer enhanced mesh architecture, built-in networking and fabric, and a new x86 instruction set developed specifically for high-performance computing environments. They have been touted as the most significant leap forward in server CPUs in over a decade.
As with the recently-announced W-Series Servers, ServerMania will offer the Xeon Silver 4114 and Gold 5118 with a choice of SATA, SSD, or NVME storage drives. The former will have 10 cores, 20 threads, and a frequency of 2.2 gHz. The latter will have 12 cores, 24 threads, and a frequency of 2.3 gHz.
Both options are intended as replacements for two of ServerMania’s legacy dedicated servers – the Dual E5-2630v4 and Dual E52650v4. Although the specs between the two are similar, the performance enhancements and tweaks present in the Xeon line make them far better-suited for high-demand, heavy-load computing tasks, per Kevin Blanchard, ServerMania CEO.
“The Intel Xeon Silver and Gold lines, much like the W-Series, are ideally-suited for the sort of high-intensity workload our clients frequently require,” explains Blanchard. “They are a significant step up from the legacy E5-2600 line, with more versatility, flexibility, and efficiency. We feel our clients both great and small will be incredibly satisfied with these new options.”
As with the W-Series, the Intel Xeon Scalable Series will be available both managed and unmanaged, with two tiers available in the former case. Essential is intended for clients who prefer to manage their own servers with technical support from ServerMania. The latter, Empowered, will see ServerMania’s engineers handle setup, security audits, patching, hardening, and more.
“We’ve always sought to provide the best services and infrastructure possible to our clients,” says Blanchard. “Offering the Xeon Scalable Series is a step forward in that regard. They’re cutting-edge in every sense of the word.”
“As always,” Blanchard continues, “ServerMania will accommodate any unique hardware or managed services requirements. We’re interested in enabling and empowering our clients – everything else is secondary.”
Since it was founded in 2002, ServerMania has always strived to provide its clients with enterprise-level service at an unbeatable cost. ServerMania offers a wide range of fully-customizable dedicated, hybrid, cloud and colocation hosting services. All ServerMania clients enjoy a 100% uptime SLA and are assisted by a 24/7 rapid response team – one with some of the best response times in the industry. ServerMania also carries out regular surveys to ensure complete customer satisfaction and care. For more information, visit http://www.servermania.com.
