Hey, im new to all this and no one seems to be active an most other forums. who can tell me...

how i get the stupid ftp thing to work because i set up users and i can never log in with it.

how to get anomes ftp to work. Allwase ask for a user name or password :mad:

Is there a arto back up thing so i dont need to go in every day to back up the site.

Do i need to put the error pages in every folder because some times they seem to work and other times they dont.

Is there a way with neo mail so that people can log in from my site and sine up from my site?

i know there are lots more things i need to ask but that will do for now...

Thanks anyone who can help or has tryed :)

I don't remember. Haven't used it for a while, but I'll let you know tomorrow if no one else does.

That can be set in WHM. If you are an end user, you will have to ask your hosting provider about it.

Do i need to put the error pages in every folder because some times they seem to work and other times they dont.
Subdomains require their own error pages in each subdomain.

Possible, but requires some programming knowledge.

YOUR MY HERO MAN!!!


===FTP log on===

thats awsem... i got the ftp thing to work (not the anonymous one) so i put in the user name - blake and the password password and the folder / and then when i log in to that (WITCH I CAN NOW :) ) i go to the public_html/jones/ folder and not the public html/ folder like i wanted.

===Error Pages===

i have seen the error page come up befor but it only comes up some times for some reason... when you say subdomane, you mean like forum.domain.com??? (sorry when i sed n00b i ment it)

===WHM===

I found a thing called web hoste manager witch i think is what you ment. It looked like somthing a reseller uses so i dont think i can do that beause the people dont anser.

thanks agen man

If you have Web Host Manager, see if you have a "Configure Backup" option. It will depend on how many WHM features you were given. "Configure Backup" is where it can be set to automatically do nightly backups. If your WHM doesn't have that, you will have to ask your provider to either give you the option, or set it up for you.
