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 ...

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. ...

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.

(This post assumes default behavior of a cPanel/Apache setup. Also assuming that the subdomain is also on the same server. All pretty vanilla assumptions ...

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 ...

PTR records can be set by your service provider. If the IP is delegated into their ownership, they are the ones who can set the PTR record.

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 ...

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. ...

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.

It's a bit hard to say for sure, but here's what I guess is going on: Your website is on name-based shared web hosting. You do not have a dedicated IP. The IP address they gave you is the address of their shared webserver. You're meant to enter it into the DNS settings for your domain. Since you're trying to access the server using the IP address ...

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 ...

Currently my website is under maintenance. If your website is only temporarily "under maintenance" and has already been live and indexed by search engines then you should consider returning a "503 Service Unavailable" HTTP response code with perhaps a Retry-After HTTP header indicating when the site is expected to be available again. Instead of simply ...

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'm not sure if such 'shared hosting' accounts is the best way to approach this. Instead I would suggest a vps account into which you can SSH in directly and setup a Linux distro of your choice - the most hassle free solution would be Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (or the newer 10.10). Look at setting up Passenger + Apache. Getting Capistrano to work after that is ...
