    Hello all,

    I got a frantic call from my developer asking me how to enable the following extensions on our new server:

    mod_rewrite
    Mysqli
    GD library

    He couldn't find where to do it from cPanel, so I have had to ask my hosting company to do it for me.

    They have said it will take 2 hours to rebuild Apache and PHP... but don't we just need to restart instead of rebuild?

    Regardless, so I don't have to bug my hosting company every time I need to do these housekeeping chores, and then wait for their service queue...

    How can I — or my dev — do these things ourselves?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    The documentation is great place to start I think:
    Apache & cPanel/WHM

    You might also use the search tools on the forum to find what you need. Lots of great Info on these forums. :)

    Very easy.

    Go to WHM

    EasyApache (Apache Update).

    Select options and recompile the Apache.

    If you have a root ssh access then you can run easy apache and select apache module mod_rewrite and PHP module for Mysqli and GD library
    You can run following script to run easy apache.

    Note: Be careful while selecting modules.
