    Hi,

    I am starting up a webhost and I've got everything up and running :) I just have one question before I launch it.

    How would you build Apache/PHP using EasyApache for a webhost? Are there any settings you recommend editing?

    Also right now I have Softaculous and CSF are there any other plugins you recommend getting?

    Thanks,
    Carl

    In this kind of environment its an absolute must to have mod_suphp and su_exec enabled.

    Also choose apache 2.2.x and PHP 5.2.12 (current latest build offered by easyapache, do not compile with 5.3 until they release a fully stable version of Zend, so many scripts depend on Zend and it wont presently work with PHP 5.3).

    Also compile with mod_security and get the latest core rules (I believe gotroot is the best place to look for those).

    mod_perl if you have more than 2gb of ram, its great but memory hungry.

    Add dos-deflate (but see this post about modifying the script - http://blog.everymanhosting.com/webhosting/dos-deflate-blocks-numbers-not-ip-addresses/ )

    Just my 'off the top of my head' two cents worth ;)

    It should automatically, just remember to recompile Apache/PHP after upgrading Mysql so they play nice together.

    And i would also recommend including GD, Curl and TTF when compiling PHP.

    I second Tam on PHP 5.3.1 Keep Away from it... lol

    I actually just had an issue with Drupal where most of my site ran perfectly well except for a major module I use... Rolled back to 5.2.12!

    cpanelkevin, is there a way to automate that?
