    I am brand new at running my own dedicated server.
    I got my start from reseller accounts and recently purchased a dedicated server.
    Now I have alot of new options, and alot of new headaches.

    One thing I see alot of, in my logs, is the nobody user.
    I keep seeing people mention using suPHP and suExec.

    However, I have not been able to find where to turn on suPHP, I can only locate suExec, in the whm.

    I imagine suPHP is done with the command line somewhere, but I cannot find any instructions on setting this up.

    Can anyone out there please assist me with this?

    Thanks,
    Chris Walker

    Go to "WHM >> Service Configuration >> Apache Configuration >> Configure PHP and Suexec" and see if SuPHP is available in the drop down options. If it is there, select it, do a dry run and save configuration. SuExec is also available there in a drop down menu with on and off option.
    If not, you need to run EasyApache from "WHM >> Software >> EasyApache (Apache Update)" and select SuPHP in the available options.

    Check the documentation links below.
