    question 1 can be misleading though, since the company I worked for does co-location, we dont provide the servers or server managment software for them. They get an ethernet handoff and a combination of DC/AC power depending on thier needs.

    cPanel and other *nix control panels use Apache for web server management. It's best to consider cPanel to be a front-end for server management software in this context.

    cPanel is more or less a LAMP bundle, as it does install, configure, and run apache, mysql, and php, among other services

    I didnt have time to look up the others...

    Professor States that FTP is used for file transfers in web based email. However I believe that the http post or put method is used. Can anyone confirm this?

    On Gmail, it's definitely HTTP. Heck, according to that statement - Web Dav (used for cPanel 11's web disk) doesn't use the Dav protocol but instead uses FTP which is downright false.

    He says the web based email at school uses ftp and that was what he was told by it. According to my webmail source code I see horde email. Does anyone know if horde handles email that way? Either way the article is plan wrong.

    It's clean from the "an" that they mean C -- "an TCP" doesn't work, "an NNTP" doesn't work, "an POP" doesn't work, only "an FTP" works.

    But that's stupid.

    When you download a file from a website, it depends on whether you use HTTP or FTP - so they're assuming everyone uses FTP, which is... false.

    Further, if you attach files to *WEB*-based email, you'll be using HTTP to send the file; but web-based email != "email". If you don't describe exactly what you mean, "email" would refer to POP. But you use SMTP to send.............

    So really... this quiz SUCKS.

    Also, they talk about "Apache" as "server management software". It's not.

    Yeesh.

    "An NNTP" is correct. An is to be used to precede a vowel sound whether or not the next letter is actually a vowel. "An honour" is a good example of when to use "an" when the next letter is not a vowel. Since "N" makes a vowel sound "en", then it is to be proceeded with "an". :) Same reason why "an FTP" is correct - the F makes a vowelly "ef" sound.

    But you're right, the quiz sucks for many other reasons.

    *smack forehead* Yeah.... when I saw the notification email of your reply, when I was reading where you quoted me, I thought, "Hang on..." -- I was do distracted by how horrible the questions were - that's my excuse. ;-)

    *hands head in shame*
