Congratulations!

Yes, if the VPS is on a node whose CPU don't constantly exceed a load of +60... Don't be surprised because (last time I checked) it can go up to 150 on certain nodes there.

How to solve it?

Well, you seem to forget that you are on an IPv6-only VPS and the 'prdownloads.sourceforge.net' domain doesn't seem to have an AAAA record :
dig prdownloads.sourceforge.net AAAA

Thus, to have access to it(/IPv4-only website) you need to use a NAT64/DNS64 gateway. Check the OP for the way to do it.

I don't use any. I'm your typical 100% command-line type of guy. And here is my advice, don't even try to set one, the VPS is borderline use-able, thus don't set anything on it that is not absolutely needed.

Good Luck!

Open your /etc/resolv.conf with a text editor and wipe all content inside it.

Add the following and save the file:
nameserver 2a00:1098:2b::1
nameserver 2a00:1098:2c::1
nameserver 2a01:4f8:c2c:123f::1
nameserver 2001:67c:2b0::4
nameserver 2001:67c:2b0::6

After that your VPS should be able to access IPv4 only content through the DNS64 + NAT64 servers that I posted in the OP of this thread.

My advice if you really still want to run a Web server in that VPS, try Nginx and if you need PHP, then install php-fpm too. I'm not sure if they will both manage to function in the conditions you're describing but, I'm confident that at least Nginx will still be there as a web server.

Ok!... I've just tested the Nginx + PHP-FPM setup and it seems to work. The response time isn't great but at least both daemons are alive and kicking.

For the PHP-FPM Process manager daemon:

nobody   24033  0.0  1.3 229156 13012 ?        S    16:40   0:00 php-fpm: pool www

You may notice the unusual location for the PHP binaries (ie /opt/php74), that's because it was compiled from source, along with the Apache HTTPD server 2.4.41.

Thus, people who want a Webserver on their VPSes are advised to go for Nginx + PHP-FPM and avoid Apache HTTPD server at all cost in there.

Good Luck all!


NB: At the time of testing this setup, the Node's load was in the 80s/70s.


UPDATE: 25/03/2020
Ok!.. As a last contribution to this thread, I'll have to state for people who do care about the topic that on the hyper-busy nodes of the free EUServ VPSes there is no way of setting up an RDBMS server (ie the likes of MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL etc..) so to set up a dynamic web site one has to set a remote connection from somewhere else, which is worthless as the loading time will most probably be unacceptable, if one add the remote connection delay to the server's own delay in dealing with requests and the rendering of the php file itself --given the high-CPU load.

Thus, in short, a classic LEMP setup isn't worth the trouble. Although I did succeed in running Redis for storing PHP sessions and speeding up a bit the initial load... but that just didn't cut it!

Anyway, the EUServ VPSes were/are a nice opportunity for me to update my server-side code-base; I've found out that I was so immersed in the IPv4 connectivity that I've cut/cast out tomorrow's IPv6-based Internet!!

On this note, I'm done with this thread.

Thanks again @Hidden Refuge for the opportunity.

what seems absolutely weird to the level of discouraging is that they provide 3 units but not even a basic level of usable service for even a simple html site. I am done with them too. anyone looking for more free vps should look for the one offered by Neoon. they are doing quite well so far.
Sincere Thanks to Shadow Hosting and post4vps  for my awesome vps4. Also a big thanks to cubedata for the great experience on my previous vps, vps8.

Well, I'm trying these 3 VPSes. I'd say they are good, suitable for testing environment and hosting static applications (not web applications). Now since many ISPs still do not support IPv6, I'm getting feedback from some of my friends from India and abroad, that they're unable to view my website.

Anyway, even though it doesn't have an IPv4, providing a free VPS isn't a small thing. It's amazing for testing and hosting static applications that are independent of your IP, and hence useful.

Thanks again @Hidden Refuge for this information, which I'd have not known otherwise. Smile

Regards,
Sayan Bhattacharyya,

Heartiest thanks to Post4VPS and Virmach for my wonderful VPS 9!
