    Hi All,

    I need to enable the following functions on our server for multiple websites. Could anyone tell me where I would go to add these?

    -Proc_open
    -Zip
    -MySQL dump

    Thanks in advance

    proc_open is disabled because of security reasons. If you are having server root access then you can enable it by modifying php.ini and removing proc_open from disable function list.

    zip can be installed by running easy apache and mysqldump is used to take db backup and by default it is enabled.

    Hi 24x7ss,

    Thanks for your reply.

    The reason why I want particularly mysqldump enabled is that we run something called ManageWP that performs backups however a lot of them are failing and the reason supposedly that mysqldump command is not enabled on the site server.

    So what I will have to do is open up the php.ini and make sure these commands are not in the disabled list?

    I'm kind of new to cpanel admin, where would I go to find the php.ini file?
