It stood still for a long time as restoring virtual host config, testing php mode, and other places. When it was standing still there was no cpu or disk activity related to said operation or affecting processes.

so when the ipv6 address assignment fails the restore/creation takes forever. If i first restore without an ipv6 address THEN assign the ipv6 things go much faster.

So is this related to the other bug you filed about IPv6 address allocation?

It could be it seems there's an issue with the IPv6 allocation system then that ripples into other areas of the system.

It's quite possible .. I'll take a look at that other ticket first.

Title: very slow restores » very slow restores*it's over*

I have been trying for a couple of years to get my control panel to work correctly. Unfortunately it appears my choice of web hosting control panel vendors has done me in. The issue has been constant ipv6 issues. My vendor, Virtualmin, is unable to fix the problems and unfortunately this means I have two choices. I have to switch to another control panel which will cost double what I am paying now for less features or I can slowly wind down operations.

All existing hosting arrangements will be honored until their expiry. I will not be accepting any new clients for web hosting and my servers will stay online until Jan 7th 2021. I have plenty of funds to keep things operating until that point. All offerings with the exception of ipv6 will also continue to operate until this time. I am also suspending billing for any renewals as since I am unable to provide the service I advertised I cannot, in good conscience) continue to bill for a service I cannot provide in full.

I simply do not have the resources to build my own panel at this time and the hundreds of hours I have spent have taken a toll on my health. It is, with a heavy heart, that I wind down my hosting operations. For all who have used my service, I thank you. If you want an archive of your site all you have to do is ask and I will make one for you that will facilitate your transition to other hosting. I will also turn over domains to your chosen registrar as well if you have purchased domains through me.Since I am giving over a year’s notice nobody will be shorted on their contracts.
