Dear all,

Is there a way or application to achieve with cpanel the same as you would with LiveReload

With livereload, (which is a local application only), after you save notepad++, the browser automatically reloads for you!

Hey there! There isn't anything included with cPanel that would provide that functionality, so you'd want to look into third-party tools you could install on the machine that would perform that type of work.
Hi cPRex,

Got it! As it's a shared LAMP install, all i got, apart from cPanel access, is ftp access with execute permissions in the home/user directory.
To install a 3rd party app i need a VPS Operating System right?

Even so not sure a connection to the local browser would be easy to achieve.
I could be looking at a script for that to work.

I can work locally while preserving an (up to date) live copy in the server. But that will be a hassle...

Let me know what would you do in my case?


Thank you!

Thanks for the additional details. The level of access you need would depend on if your server already meets the requirements for the application you want to use. If so, you may be able to perform the installation as the cPanel user, although shell access might be required. If not, you'd have to speak with your host to see if they could enable any missing PHP requirements before you tried the installation.

Thanks cPRex!

If they don't give me temporary root access in my "Cage System" shared install, I'll ask them to install it themselves.

Host provider confirmed LiveReload requires VPS for it to work. Regardless of it being true or not...

It's not a deal breaker coming from cPanel; but a requirement host provider said the app needs.
I guess this will push me to take further advantage of what the VPS can offer.

Wanted to finish this one out with this extra info; which may be useful for others to know about.
