Hello everyone here.

I do need your help. Im new in these area and the question is:
After the EasyApache 4 reset and provision, is it must the Script Installing again, like ffmpeg, mp4box, yamdi, x264, imagemagick and youtube-dl etc.

Because few days before in WHM/ EasyApache 4 Im try to set something that want the server run perfect, but I made a mistake that change the DSO to CGI, so all the site is fail, and then I change back, the site start run again, but I think still something error there, as at the site Admin area, the FFMPEG, YOUTUBE-DL .etc are not working.
