    Hi. I am moving a site from shared hosting on godaddy which it worked ok on to a vps server. The site is giving error messages right at the very beginning of the install. I think it basically has to do with the settings i've got my cpanel running on. Basically the standard settings as it came from Godaddy. Here is what i need the settings to be in order for the site to operate. I have read the documentation on cpanel however i'm going to be honest it just doesn't totally click yet.
    PHP version must not be lower than 5.2.4
    Mysql version must not be lower than 5.0
    Server API must be Apache Server or CGI
    GD library must have Free type support (make sure that Free type support value is enabled
    for this directive)
    Find the following sections (all of them are required for proper software performance):
    Register_globals (must be off)
    safe_mode (must be off)
    Suexec, suhosin, suphp, suapache modules must be disabled
    Also, your server must have a Mail server (SendMail, Exim or other) and Cron

    I am able to get some of these but others i'm not. I'm fairly certain it isn't a scripting problem hindering the install because it ran fine through the install process on godaddy's shared hosting. now i'm on the vps and i don't think i have everything configured correctly.

    I do have an info file in the root if it would help you to view it. the url is - removed -

    i am fairly certain i can do most of this through the easy apache area i'm just not sure and don't want to mess anything up. Thank you in advance. I"m sure once i do this one time the information I read through will make more since to me.

    Could you let us know which modules you are not able to install? EasyApache is fairly straightforward but let us know if you have any questions about using it.

    Thank you.
