1. I saw the 'Php open_basedir Tweak' in the help, but what prevents cgi/perl scripts from parsing files outside their home dir ? 2. How easy would it be if my dedicated server IP had to change? (what kind or modifications will I have to make?) 3. I'll be running on FreeBSD, so to upgrade lets say, PHP. Would I need to CVSUP the ports then tell cpanel to upgrade? Does cpanel use the ports or something else? 4. Like other control panels, can i make manual changes to php.ini, httpd.conf etc.. and not have the control panel overwrite them? 5. I'm a vhost cpanel reseller now but i want to get my own cpanel server, so to move my customers will i have to make a cpanel backup of each customer, ftp them to my new box, untar them in /home/ and specify the username. now, is this username their old username or their new one (if i can specify one here) ?
