    Hi guys,

    Is it possible for an end user who has no access to cpanel to find out about the server info(processor,drives,RAM) via PHP or any other language?

    Sure, there are several ways someone could find info about the server. Many of those depend on how you have your server security setup.

    Hi Roy,

    I have install a script which can show some info on your server. You can take a look if it suit your needs here http://www.eazistore.com/server/

    Please drop me a mail and I could pass you the script :)

    Rgds,
    Vincent Kam

    It's even easier than that. If anyone has access to upload a file to the server, all they need to do is create a php file and add 1 line with phpinfo in it and they basically have a list of all kinds of stuff on the server unless this is disabled at the server level.

    <?php phpinfo(); ?>
    That may be what he was talking about. :D
