I am really new at using CPanel so please bare with me. I was browsing through CPanel and I noticed Fantastico. I clicked on it and it took me to a page in what it looks like you can install pre written scripts for all kinds of services for your website. Is this correct? Any information will help. thanks.:)

Thats exactly what it is a series of pre written scripts that give you added dimensions to your server and of course it allows you to offer more if your re-selling your services.

Beware that providing all the available scripts in Fantastico will reduce the security of your server immensely and immediately.

http://www.netenberg.com/fantastico_scripts.php

I'd be willing to bet at least 50% of those scripts have had serious security issues at some point. If you don't absolutely need Fantastico, I wouldn't use it. Netenberg doesn't force the vendors of those scripts to provide any quality assurance results for their code, and as a result of the poor quality code in most of those scripts, servers are constantly hacked.

It looks like a good tool to use but it seems that it might be unreliable as far as security. I think I'll stick to uploading files instead. thanks for the info. :)
