$30-50 USD

$30-50 USD

Paid on delivery
We are a web design firm with a VPS running WHM to manage client hosting. We do not have the inhouse expertise to manage this VPS at a high level. We have recently been attacked by a spammer, who has used our IP address to send out thousands of spam emails. As a result, our IP address has been blacklisted (eg with [login to view URL]) and our clients are experiencing problems in emails being blocked by mailservers that use blacklists. We need to have the source of this problem identified and the vulnerability fixed as a matter of urgency. We then need to advise all relevant SPAM databases that have our IP address listed (such as (but not only) [login to view URL]) that the problem has been fixed and request de-listing (urgently). We need an experienced, knowledgeable, reliable and responsive person to resolve this immediate problem for us. If this is done quickly and satisfactorily, we will be post a separate job exclusively for this Coder. This would be for an ongoing role managing our VPS - doing the following things : - ensure regular backups are done of all server files (in particular client files). - run regular security audits on the VPS. - locate and apply any security patches or fixes that are required - troubleshoot any problems that arise - optimise the VPS for speed - make recommendations to improve the service provided to our hosting clients (eg moving to an alternative server). *Please NOTE: these tasks are NOT included in this job - I am just giving info about the ongoing role.* This job needs to be completed urgently - so please only bid if you have time to do this work in the next 24-48 hours. If you have any questions, just ask. Thanks for reading this!
