    Hi I have 3 simple questions I hope someone can answer.
    First: How do you add the "Submit to search engine" feature for clients ? I have looked everwhere on my whm and cant find it.
    Second: How do I update phpmyadmin, horde and other scripts?
    Third: When will cpanel be apache 2 compatible? Any ideas on that?

    Thanks

    Ways to enable php safe_mode

    When using PHP as an Apache module, you can also change the configuration settings using directives in Apache configuration files (e.g. httpd.conf) ,php.ini file and .htaccess files.

    Activate/deactivate Safe Mode Globally

    It is very simple to active safe mode on the entire server. All you need to do is just edit the php.ini file. If you can’t find where php.ini is or have multiple copies on your server the best thing to do is run follwing command on shell .

    #php -i |grep php.ini

    A few lines down you’ll see this:
    Configuration File (php.ini) Path: /usr/local/Zend/etc/php.ini or /etc/php.ini

    1) Open up php.ini .
    vi /path to php/php.ini (replace with the path to your php.ini file)

    2) Find the following line: safe_mode

    3) Turning safe mode on or off.
    safe_mode = Off
    You may active it by or turn it off by changing it to either On OR Off.
    safe_mode = On

    4) Restart the Apache web server by
    /etc/init.d/httpd restart or Kill all exiting httpd connection and run
    service httpd startssl

    Activate/deactivate Safe Mode Using Per Site Basis ie.Activate/deactivate Safe Mode locally

    There are some applications or scripts that require safe_mode off like Modernbill , gallary, etc, or any other scripts doesn’t work well with safe_mode.So it is not well to diable safe_mode on the entire server just for these application or scripts for this condtion you can disable php safe mode locally i.e for that particular site or account only.

    There are two way to do this
    A] In httpd.conf file

    1] Then find the httpd.conf, normally it’s in /etc/httpd/conf/ or /usr/local/apache/conf/

    2) Then find the Site you wish to edit.
    You should see virtualhost configuration of that Site

    ServerAlias www.domain.net domain.net
    ServerAdmin webmaster@domain.net
    DocumentRoot /home/domain/public_html
    BytesLog domlogs/domain.net-bytes_log
    ServerName www.domain.net
    User domain
    Group domain
    CustomLog domlogs/domain.net combined
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/domain/public_html/cgi-bin/

    3) Now add this line:

    php_admin_flag safe_mode Off
    Or
    php_admin_value safe_mode 0

    4] Save the file and Restart the Apache web server by
    B] .htaccess file
    1]Find the .htaccess file under public_html folder or that particular application ,scripts folder of that site if it is not present then create .htaccess file

    # vi .htaccess

    2] Insert this line into your .htaccess file:

    php_admin_flag safe_mode Off
    Or
    php_admin_value safe_mode 0

    Note::
    There are several Apache directives that allow you to change the PHP configuration from within the Apache configuration file itself.

    php_value name value
    This sets the value of the specified variable.
    php_flag name on|off
    This is used to set a Boolean configuration option.

    php_admin_value name value
    This sets the value of the specified variable. “Admin” configuration settings can only be set from within the main Apache configuration files, and not from .htaccess files.
    php_admin_flag name on|off

    thanks a lot, that helped. Can you tell me how to get the search engine submit feature on the client cpanel? I cant seem to find anything on it.

    PS the search feature is messed up on this forum unless they have it disabled

    Submit URL to Search engine

    Search engine submit allows you to submit your website address to multiple search engines at once, saving you time and money.

    Note: The search engine submit feature has been removed by cPanel. If you still want to submit your site to search engine then do it via the following URL(s) instead:

    http://www.google.com/addurl/?continue=/addurl

    Also check URL:
