    Thank you. That is what I needed to know.

    Recreating a Wordpress website

    I have someone that contacted me for a Wordpress website in March but didn't get back to me about it until recently. All I did in March was create the site with the default Wordpress theme, add a few email accounts, and then I immediately back it up through CPanel (hd, sql db and forwarders). I...

    Backing Up Through CPanel

    So, actually, I'm thinking the best and easiest thing to do would be to transfer the email accounts to another service like Namecheap. It's a very cheap service. Not a problem, and actually an improvement if the service is what they claim it is. They use the OX.io portal, and it looks very...

    Backing Up Through CPanel

    I have relatively small websites that I have always backed up through CPanel (home directory, MySQL and forwarders). Of late, I have been having issues with the backup sizes getting up to around 100mb and more, when they still should be around 30mb or so. I have been told that this is because...

    Strange change in size of new install

    I created a new account and did an install of a new WordPress website a couple months ago. I'm just using one of the built-in themes and haven't added any plugins. Other than that, it just has 5 email accounts. I really didn't think anyone would even know it was there since it was a new domain...

    redirecting www to non www

    Thanks, Mike. It ended up being something else altogether actually.... The nameservers evidently got messed up when their old registrar was bought out by another. I have tried to get them to transfer to namecheap, but no success yet. HEY! I didn't even notice the Purdue logo on the penguin...

    redirecting www to non www

    OK, so can I simply copy and paste that into the htaccess file - meaning I don't have to put the actual domain into it? Also, is there a specific spot I should put it within the htaccess file? Before or after anything? Probably on their own lines at least.... Just looking at it the first line...

    redirecting www to non www

    There seems to be some misleading info out there on the best way to redirect the domains. What would be the best way to redirect http://www.domain.com/ to http://domain.com/ I saw the following in another host's tutorial on using the cpanel 301 redirect applet: Warning: Never create a...

    Creating New Account

    Indeed. Everything appears to be working fine with all of the websites and access to the root and cPanel, but the AIM username changed to the new account username. Just an odd occurrence, I guess maybe a cPanel bug. Just thought I'd run it by and see if anyone else had any experience with it...

    Creating New Account

    And I went thru the steps in the tutorial, I mean creating a new account is pretty straightforward, so I do not think I did anything out of the ordinary. I did change the e-mail contact of the new account thru cPanel immediately after creating the account after realizing that I used the wrong...

    Creating New Account

    OK, one last question for a bit...hopefully.... I have a handful of accounts (websites) on a VPS. Yesterday I created a new account to begin the process of creating another website, and it changed my AIM username to the username of the new account (domain). That seemed odd to me. Is that just a...

    Ongoing Maintenance

    A bit confused on what these web scripts are. Are they the install scripts for things like Wordpress, YaBB, Agoracart, etc under "Install cPAddons Site Software"? I have a few installed (YaBB, Agoracart and PHPMyChat) but don't think I ever use them. Would I update them under "Manage cPAddons...

    Ongoing Maintenance

    I have seen this a few times but couldn't find the thread while searching. What is not updated automatically in a CPanel VPS? What do I have to manually update on an ongoing basis? PHP? mySQL? You might want to add a good answer of this to the tutorials....

    SSL Certificate?

    One more thing. If I add an SSL certificate as above, will that require reconfiguration of the email accounts?
