    I have a reseller account on litespeed shared server. My experience has been when installing programs like Vbulletin or PHPFox that I upload the zip files for those programs and extract them on the server. I then copy the necessary files for the install and delete the package. When running the install programs typically the programs show that all the necessary file permissions are set correctly. I Everything is usually very smooth and works great when done.

    Now have another new account on a VPS with another host. I attempt to install the same programs by uploading the files, extracting on server and running the install programs. On this new VPS the permissions are always set wrong I need to manually set and I have a delays with webpages loading that I do not think it's because of lack of available resources on the server. Since I needed to set permissions detailed by the install routine correctly to install the program I also do not have confidence that other permissions that are set correctly throughout the website? So the question is why would one cpanel set up extract files with permission set and another with the same permissions not set correctly? The second question is could I do an install on the reseller account where the website works correctly, compress it and install it on the second server with the permissions intact?

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    Are you logging in as the account username when uploading and extracting the installation files? You will have to manually modify the ownership values if you are uploading files as "root" instead of the account username.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Yes. I am logging into the cpanel control panel for that account. I asked my host that I have the shared reseller account how the permissions are typically set correctly and he responded
    Still not sure what is going on with the VPS but the site sure does not load well at all. It really lags when I click between my phpFox install and vBulletin. I'm using an integration plugin that works fine on the other server.

    I am trying to work with the the VPS company but haven't gotten to the bottom yet.

    Thanks
