I can understand the frustration when you don't have access to SSH. Below is a simple PHP script that you save in a file in the root folder from where you want to start your search. For example, I wanted to find all files that have the HEX color code string ecebeb under the ../public_html (or the www) folder. Retracing the steps here. Login to ...

There is a relatively new technology called Server Name Indication (SNI) that allows SSL certificates to be associated with a virtual host rather than with the server's IP address. Here is a digicert article that explains it very well. Your host may not have SNI support installed yet. It requires newer versions of both Apache and OpenSSL. Web hosting ...

If you don't trust him/her, create an FTP account in the domain that is being worked on for the uploads. Dev person should be able to create the database structure on their own machine and then dump it and give you a SQL file to recreate it on your server.

You might find The First Few Milliseconds of an HTTPS Connection by Jeff Moser useful reading. It provides a detailed explanation of what happens on the wire when a browser sets up an HTTPS connection with a server. This interesting video illustrates public key cryptography by mixing paint colours! You should also look at the OpenSSL command line tool. ...

Seems to be related to the dompdf library. Since you seem unaware it's even on your site, it's probably being used as a library by some utility or plugin for a CMS, for example. Does your site offer a feature to download a given page as a PDF? That would be the first place to look.

To redirect only mobile traffic to a mobile domain there are a few options:- Simple Based on screen resolution (my favorite as it's fairly future proof) <script type="text/javascript"> <!-- if (screen.width <= 699) { document.location = "www.mobileurl.com"; } //--> </script> More granular control ...

Actually when using hosting management software like cPanel, it installs MySQL with default and commonly used configurations: MySQL host = 'localhost' MySQL port = '3306' MySQL User = 'cpanelusername_mysqluser' [1] MySQL password = 'password' [2] MySQL database = 'cpanelusername_database' [3] More explanations about the host address: If ...

Simple answer. Hosts provide what is asked for and works best. It is a double-sided coin. Apache has been extremely successful and is stable and seasoned code therefore hosts don't have to work hard to support it. As you may know, Apache is one of the first successful web servers and serves the vast majority of web installations therefore it is asked for the ...

No. cPanel cannot know how long a page takes too load. There are too many variables that affect a page's performance. If it loads fast for the hosts, then it loads fast for the host but that may be because their network access is much more efficient to their own machines. The best is to measure performance from an outside point such as Google Page Speed. ...

A quick look at the web host you currently use shows that they only offer 2 hosting packages that are both less than $10/month. This is pretty much guaranteed to be shared hosting as VPS starts at at least $20/month on the extreme low end. So that means you probably don't have root access. That said, there's no reason the other host would need root access ...

Use add on domains in cpanel, and each one you add should add a new folder to 'public_html' where you can place your files.

Search engines will have no idea which of the two domains is your 'main' domain. They have no access to your hosting providers data. They only know your domains from what they contain and how other sites link to them. So, no, this will not affect SEO.

I found the issue was the user for that cPanel account actually had an identical password to my WHM account and this threw an error (though user names were different). I changed it and it was ok.

Web traffic Check the web logs to see which pages are being requested. If they're hitting a single page with a bad plug-in then it should show you the Page/Request URI that the user hit. Some things like scripts that resize image uploads can eat resources quickly. If you were getting a lot of traffic for the webserver then it would likely be someone ...

[Disclaimer: I work for one of the companies in the list below] Since your host is going to provide DNS management, it sounds like your needs are: setting up Apache virtual hosts, managing SFTP accounts, and creating MySQL databases and users. Does that sound right? You can definitely set up your sites manually, but life may be easier (and consequently ...

Unfortunately with your current hosting setup, there is nothing you can do except to make a separate subdomain for your mailing lists. You need a reverse proxy in front of your abc.org site, that forwards traffic based on the URL either to the webydo hosting service or your server that has the mailman software. This cannot be accomplished via DNS. Your ...

I'd say don't bother, it's not worth the hassle of setup, maintaining a clean IP, and achieving high deliverability. Plus, the reporting is far more sophisticated than you would be able to achieve in building something yourself. Use something like MailChimp or Campaign Monitor, both excellent services that have free plans or free trials. As for the ...

It is configured by the host by editing the "Bandwidth Processing Frequency" in their Web Host Manager See Schedule Configuration for further information.

First verify that the nameservers are right. Then in cPanel under Addon Domains make sure it's not in there, it is then delete it and re-add it. If you still get the error you need to contact your host. There is something mis-configured in your cPanel account that they can easily fix.

Kloxo/HyperVM might be worth a look - open source/free and released under AGPL-3.0 license. I can't say whether or not development is keeping pace with bugs at this point - you should know, if you use this software, that there were some issues with security (which turned into some huge headaches for hosting providers) a couple years back. Edit: Though the ...

The server's WHM configuration allows cPanel to utilize either BIND or NSD as its DNS daemon: when a cPanel user adds a subdomain, corresponding DNS records are created in BIND or NSD.

If your moving over to using your own server then it's well worth just learning a bit about using the shell and just access it via SSH. It takes some time to get used to but is much more flexible that using GUI tools in the long run.

This FAQ relates to BlueHost but it should also apply to other cPanel .nstallations. It looks to me, and this matches my memory, that the FTP is created along with the addon domain. Quoting from siteground: Step 1: To access the Addon Domains tool, click on the corresponding icon located on the main screen of your cPanel interface. Step 2: Enter the name ...

That's how file permissions work. If you want a user/group to have access to a file, then they need the permission to do it. If you don't want your PHP/Apache user to have access to that file, then you can't use PHP to do the enabling/disabling. You could, however, create a separate user to run PHP as for this admin panel. This way the PHP admin panel is ...
