Hello,

If you do change the backup location to /home/backup and you have quota support enabled on /home then backups will be degraded. The next time /scripts/fixquotas is run, it will disable quota support on the /home partition/directory because it will detect that the backup directory is located on that partition.

Just a gotcha that many users forget about. Quotas will be disabled if fixquotas detects that the BACKUPDIR is set to a location that has Quotas currently enabled.

Half visitors cant access my site, google cant access my site too

- Few days ago i made this change to my server :

i tried this tutorial to increase tmp folder /http://cpanelwhm.org/ssh/increase-tmp-partition-size/144
i cant make it, i just change /scripts/securetmp, and already restore the file before edited

that tutorial looks like wrong or not completed tutorial, said this person http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/cant-in...-directory-under-home-445452.html#post1798912




- i already tried this too, to try empty /tmp folder before
rm -rf /tmp/*

but looks like no change

in WHM > Service Status, almost same still like this now
http://forums.cpanel.net/attachment...ry-under-home-whm-status-disk-information.jpg




- since about that date, my visitors decreased about half
i think its because new year vacation before, but its still like that until now

and in google webmaster tools get this message, its mean google cant access my site too :
Googlebot can't access your site
Temporarily unreachable

i tried check in host-tracker.com, about 40% says my site up, 60% says down





- its looks like the problem in Resolver or nameserver or dns or something like that

some visitors that cant access my site, says they use google DNS (8.8.8.8 - 8.8.4.4) in they internet connection, maybe it can be a clue


in whm > Resolver Configuration, its still like this since few months ago no problem
8.8.8.8
111.222.333.444 --> just example


i already tried restart DNS, disable csf, reboot the server, but still same


please help guys finding the problem, what i need to check or try? it is better if i can fix it by my self, otherwise i will create cpanel support ticket later

You should avoid running commands, as root, on your server if you're unsure of what you're doing.

This, rm -rf, run incorrectly in the wrong location, can wipe you out.

You might want to look into hiring a professional system administrator to assist you.

here are result from intodns.com that have blue & yellow warning, how is it guys :

Code:
Info 	Domain NS records 	Nameserver records returned by the parent servers are:

ns1.domain.com.   ['111.222.333.444']   [TTL=172800]
ns2.domain.com.   ['111.222.333.444']   [TTL=172800]

a.gtld-servers.net was kind enough to give us that information. 





Info 	NS records from your nameservers	NS records got from your nameservers listed at the parent NS are:

ns2.domain.com  ['111.222.333.444']   [TTL=86400]
ns1.domain.com  ['111.222.333.444']   [TTL=86400] 





Warn 	Different subnets 	WARNING: Not all of your nameservers are in different subnets





Warn 	Different autonomous systems 	WARNING: Single point of failure




Warn 	SOA EXPIRE 	Your SOA EXPIRE number is: 3600000. That is NOT OK




Info 	MX Records	Your MX records that were reported by your nameservers are:

0   domain.com   111.222.333.444

[These are all the MX records that I found. If there are some non common MX records at your nameservers you should see them below. ] 




Info 	Number of MX records 	OK. Looks like you only have one MX record at your nameservers. You should be careful about what you are doing since you have a single point of failure that can lead to mail being lost if the server is down for a long time. 



Info 	WWW A Record 	Your [url]www.domain.com[/url] A record is:
[url]www.domain.com[/url] -> domain.com -> [ 111.222.333.444  ]

[Looks like you have CNAME's]







using ping.eu/traceroute/ the result like this

Code:
14 	server1.domain.com 	111.222.333.444 	us 	300.471 ms 	 	 
	ip-82.thehosting.com 	111.222.333.120 	us 	293.423 ms 	 
	server1.domain.com 	111.222.333.444 	us 	300.471 ms





using whatsmydns.net, only 4 location down :
Code:
Mountain View CA, United States Google 	
Bangkok, Thailand True Internet	
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Packet One Networks
Broadbeach QLD, Australia AAPT



please help guys, give suggestions if there is i can check or fix

Yes, that link I posted for you should be useful.

You can most likely ignore those. They have nothing to do with your securetmp issue. If you see anything in red, what do they say?
