  • WordPress plugin to allow sending mail using SMTP for ASPnix customers

    No comments March 24th, 2014 227 View(s)

    Due to our recent PHP security changes (disabling PHP’s mail function), WordPress websites that are not configured with an SMTP plugin are no longer able to send email. The fix is super easy and only takes a minute or two to complete.

    1. Install the following SMTP plugin “WP Mail SMTP” – http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/
    2. Configure the plugin’s SMTP connection settings per this article – https://aspnix.com/kb/windows-shared-kb/how-do-i-send-mail-from-my-website-on-windows-shared-services/
    3. Done!

    Your WordPress powered website should now be able to send mail using our website mailer servers using SMTP.

  • PHP 5.6 now supported for Windows shared hosting

    No comments March 21st, 2014 72 View(s)

    We are pleased to announce that we’ve now added PHP 5.6 to our list of supported PHP builds. While PHP 5.6 is still in alpha, we’ve been asked by many customers to deploy a 5.6 installation so they can test their applications and deploy applications that make use of this new version’s features and abilities. Since this is a separate version of PHP it makes it easier to deploy it without fear of causing harm / instabilities in the other PHP builds.

    Please remember though, PHP v5.6 is not yet final, there may be bugs, instabilities, errors and other issues that may cause problems for your web application. Please do not use this version of PHP simply because it is the “latest”. We recommend PHP 5.3 / 5.4 for most applications.

    If you have any questions, please contact our support department.

    Thank you again for choosing ASPnix!

  • WEB01-DE Outage (Resolved)

    No comments March 5th, 2014 188 View(s)

    We are currently investigating an issue affecting the WEB01-DE server and other services we have operating on a node in our Nuremberg Germany data-center. We have technicians on site currently and should have a report shortly of what the issue is and when it will be resolved.

    Thank you for your patience!

    UPDATE: The issue has been resolved. After a full review of the server and our network, the issue was tracked down to a load balancer that had malfunctioned. Normally this should not affect operations to the point of completely disrupting services, however a router was not properly configured on our data-center networking side and traffic was not properly routed when the equipment failed. The issue has been resolved and the failed equipment replaced.
