Hi All,

I am into finalizing the Adsense For Video Plugin for flowplayer just a few final tweaks and we would be good to release it.

Just being curious on how much cost should I have for the license :)

Watch this place soon for more updates on the same.

Naren A.


The possible cause is corrupt filesystem or wrong entries in /etc/fstab.

When system comes into the state where it has file system mounted as read only.

issue command mount -w -o remount / as root and then check for possible wrong entries in /etc/fstab or fsck on boot to check filesystem.

In most of the cases the issue is solved by the above steps.

if the issue is not solved then HDD needs to replaced :)



Installing cPanel

There are a few things that need to be done when installing CPanel on a Centos Machine.

NOTE: The only OS compatible is CENTOS.

1. The Hostname needs to be a FQDN (Full quilified Domain Name)
Example: your.website.com

2. The Firewall needs to be Disabled on Centos

nano /etc/sysconfig/selinux

3. Disable iptables.

# service iptables save
# service iptables stop
# chkconfig iptables off

4 Installation procedure:

cd /home
# wget -N http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest
# sh latest

Not: you will see a bunch of “+” signs, it takes about 1.5 hours to install.

After the installation is “done”, please poit your browser to:

https://:2087 for the configuration menu.

IMPORTANT: When installing CPANEL in VPS, DO NOT modify any iptables settings on the container, otherwise you will not be able to connect

NOTE: If having issues with dependencies at installation stage, please add the following command rpm -e bind-chroot and run the installation again.

You may also need yum-utils install for package clean which can be done by command yum install yum-utils


Commands to be executed on Main Hardware Node to enable support for pptp on container.

modprobe tun
modprobe ppp-compress-18
modprobe ppp_mppe
modprobe ppp_deflate
modprobe ppp_async
modprobe pppoatm
modprobe ppp_generic
4. Stop the VE
vzctl stop {VEID}
5. From HN, run the below commands:
vzctl set {VEID} –features ppp:on –save
vzctl start {VEID}
vzctl set {VEID} –devices c:108:0:rw –save
vzctl exec {VEID} mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0
vzctl exec {VEID} chmod 600 /dev/ppp
6. Login to VE and see if the ‘pppd’ command works.
yum install ppp
If you see some garbage values, it means it is enabled correctly.

On the Hardware node the following command are to be executed.

Please note that this can be done only if you have access to the hardware node.

# yum install ntp

# chkconfig ntpd on

# ntpdate pool.ntp.org

# /etc/init.d/ntpd start


In order to change the time zone for a server, please issue the following command:

vzctl set 101 –capability sys_time:on –save, where <101> is the CT_ID of the VPS where we want to perform this task.

To see the CT_ID of a container, issus: vzlist -a command.



Hope this helps :)




When Installing Linux on server sometimes we come across the error message like Disk sdx contains RAID metadata and is ignored.

To fix this there are 2 ways.

Boot into rescue mode by selecting option on centos 6 or typing linux rescue for centos 5 and start the shell without configuring network.

After you are on shell type command.

dmraid -r -E /dev/sdx

you would be asked for confirmation:
Do you really want to erase “sdx” ondisk metadata on /dev/sdc ? [y/n] :

where sdx refers to your drive (sda or sdb etc)

Type y and hit enter.

If you get no error then the drive is ready for the installation


If there is an error then you need to work an alternate method.

On the rescue shell execute command.

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdx bs IM

where sdx refers to drive you need to fix.

then execute

# – z
# bg
# killall -USR1 dd

and then you need to wait as this process may take longer durations depending on the Hard Drive capacity.

after the process is complete a message will be displayed and your Hard Drive is ready for install.

Hope this helps :)
