Command to count VE on node

Give command vzlist|wc -l on node to check the number of VE's.

For example::

[root@ninad02 ~]# vzlist|wc -l
24

This shows there are 24 VE's on that node.

Warning: Cannot modify header information

If you get warnings on top of the page
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at

Solution is
The "headers already sent" error is usually caused by having white space before or after the opening and closing PHP tags ().

In my case it was I removed  and issue resolved.

Change smtp port on plesk server to 26

Follow below steps to change smtp port on plesk server to 26.

>> cd /etc/xinetd.d
>> ls -l | grep smtp*
>> cat smtp_psa

service smtp
{
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
disable = no
user = root
instances = UNLIMITED
server = /var/qmail/bin/tcp-env
server_args = /usr/sbin/rblsmtpd -r bl.spamcop.net /var/qmail/bin/relaylock /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd /var/qmail/bin/smtp_auth /var/qmail/bin/true /var/qmail/bin/cmd5checkpw /var/qmail/bin/true
}

>> pico /etc/services

Add this line
smtp_psa_new 26/tcp mail
smtp_psa_new 26/udp mail

>> cp smtp_psa smtp_psa_new

Change the service line in the new file ’smtp_psa_new” to be this:

service smtp_psa_new
{
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
disable = no
user = root
instances = UNLIMITED
server = /var/qmail/bin/tcp-env
server_args = /usr/sbin/rblsmtpd -r bl.spamcop.net /var/qmail/bin/relaylock /var/qmail/bin/qmail-smtpd /var/qmail/bin/smtp_auth /var/qmail/bin/true /var/qmail/bin/cmd5checkpw /var/qmail/bin/true
}

>> /etc/init.d/xinetd restart

And you should see smtp listening on ports 25, and 26:

>> netstat -anp | grep xinetd

tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:25 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 6989/xinetd
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:26 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 6989/xinetd
