Are you merely an account holder with a web hosting provider or do you have root access to the server?
No, I am not at all. I hosted my domain to a hosting provider, but it's so hard to make a request to the server administrator. I mean is there any solution to solve this problem :
Warning: The exec() function is disabled in your PHP by
the disabled_functions parameter in php.ini. You won't be able
to use modules that require external binaries (e.g. ImageMagick, NetPBM or Ffmpeg).
This can only be set server-wide, so you will need to change it in the global php.ini.

Warning: Your PHP is configured to limit the memory to 8Mb (memory_limit parameter in php.ini).
You should raise this limit to at least 16MB for proper Gallery operation.

Your webserver does not support localization.
To enable support for additional languages please instruct your system administrator to reconfigure PHP with the gettext option enabled.
What should I do with this?

That statement means that you will have to contact your host for help. There is no way for you to override what your host has set up.

What's the between "Legacy file Mgr" and "File Mgr"?

Hi my friends,

Pretty new to all this. I see that in some cPanels there's a "File Mgr." and in others there's ALSO a "LEGACY" File Mgr.!

What's the difference between these and when should I use each of them? :confused:

Thanks for a Great Forum! :)

Warm regards,

Rudy

Legacy File Manager is the File Manager from version 10. This is only provided for legacy purposes. I would recommend you use the new File Manager (labeled simply "File Manager") as this offers much more functionality than Legacy File Manager.

Hi All

I'm completely new to the whole web site thing. Mum has a home business and a Domain name/ website is up and running, the website guy told her..."its so easy" well now he's left and mum wants to change stuff.

After it taking a good 5 months to get the username and password we find this cpanel thing totally frightening. Is there some program for the completelt PC dummy that will let me put together a website. Drop and drag style or just major basic that I can put in place? I need to see it as it is being built this HTML code stuff = headache.

Any ideas greatly appreciated I would like to have a bash at doing it myself as the pictures at least really need to be updated on a regular basis

thanks

Many hosting providers install plug-ins to our cPanel/WHM software to offer precisely what you mention: the ability to create websites with drag/drop ease of use without having to code. You may wish to contact your hosting provider to see if they already offer such software via their cPanel interface.

I currently has a reseller program. I am interested to lease a dedicated Server. I would like to know if it is a good idea. Currently the Hosting company is taking care of everything as it is just a reseller. I am afraid if i have a Dedicated Server along with cpanel, I would have to take care of everything. If anyone has a dedicated server and with cpanel, let me know if it is good idea for going dedicated server and taking care of things my own. To my knowledge in case of have dedicated server, hosting companies do not help you much!

Thanks!

If you want to expand beyond the realm of "reseller" and want to move on to a full dedicated server perhaps because you need the extra space and resources or perhaps because of growing reseller costs, but feel that you are not ready to take on the work involved with running a real dedicated server or the extra knowledge or skills you will need beyond Cpanel, I would suggest hiring a management company to help you.

Management companies, such as the one in my signature line, are 3rd party companies that help you setup and secure your server, monitor things, and take care of the day to day behind the scenes work so you are just left with having only to deal with accounts the same as your reseller account.

Basically in a nutshell, server management companies, take on the role of what your host previously provided you as a reseller maintaining all aspects of your dedicated machine for you.

In lieu of hiring a management company, you could also go with a "fully managed" dedicated server instead of a "self managed" dedicated server where the server provider will handle main server operations for you but doing this often costs more in increased server costs than just hiring a 3rd party management company and you will usually find that "fully managed" is not so "fully managed" when it comes to tasks such as securing your servers and more complicated issues. Most fully managed server programs generally focus more on helping you deal more with major issues only and then provide answer to questions support beyond that.
