Thorny wasn't in any contract, he had committed to 6 months. I would like to give Thorny fair time in case he is legit, it doesn't seem so, but we'll see.
Will, if he just brought the server up...what I was saying is that it would be quite easy for thorny to also log in and grab any data he had on the server, and there's no way to stop that...granted there shouldn't be data that thorny needs anyway, since if he was going to pull this ---- he probably already has backups.
But yea, you're right, other than that..I don't think there would be a problem.
EDIT: Mark could probably just bring it up with a deny on thorny's IP, or allow tony and deny everything else..or just bring up ftp..or something..
I think there's a way to do it..I'm not sure though..I'm not in the position so I'm not sure what his options are for that. Besides just bringing the server up completely for a couple of minutes.
I can answer all the questions needed.
I still need to protect Thorny's files and they are in fact his even when you upload your content to his server. The server was running cPanel so in order to retain a backup, that would need to be put back on. The fee I told you for retrieving the files (cPanel + our time to create/upload/retrieve the backup) still stands. Kind of protects everyone seeing as it shows some commitment on your side as not being Thorny. I will have to KVM in, change root password, etc. so it's not something I'm going to do out of the goodness of my heart considering I lost a substantial sum on Thorny.
I have the passwords still and everything. I can barely afford $80, if I did, it would take me some time,and you are punishing me for his misdoings. I am sorry, but this is very unprofessional.
UT, I need to call bull----.
It would take less than 4 minuets to edit grub to boot without the root password or change the password using passwd. Maybe 15 minuets if you had some odd or complex authentication for the KVM. If you power up the server ftpd should be auto-started along with httpd. Perhaps you could rent the cost of powering the server up to fat tony. If you were ultra-nice, you would rent it to him at an hourly rate... Or even a daily rate.
When you bring a cPanel server up without a license, you have 30 days to get a license before cpanel is disabled. Perhaps you could do it as a favor should fat tony decide to purchase a shared hosting account from you.
