    European Datacentre

    it definatly would be nice to have a European datacentre, but the only issue I can really see with it is the cost. KH wouldn't be able to offer such fantastic pricing. Everything in Europe is twice the price of that in the US. Saying that, I'd still like to see a local dc.

    You need to enable the the feature in the default features list. If its not on the list it's not installed properly. You can find the feature editor under the packages section of the navigation.

    howto: Upgrade ClamAV

    If your clamAV messes up because of this you can let cPanel reinstall for you. Go to WHM - cPanel - Plugins - uninstall clamav connector and then reinstall it. This will reinstall clamav for you.

    VPS Capacity Question

    I completely agree with Josh (ppc), the entry level vps with cPanel won't leave you enough ram to really allow your client's websites to be accessed. I started out with the M plan and found that cPanel took the ram usage close to 96%. Definatly start with the next plan up if you plan to have cPanel.

    Ruby on Rails

    I personally wasn't linking the two, I was simply saying that on a VPS running cPanel is hard enough to keep stable as cPanel is a memory hog. If you were to introduce a new process which I imagen is also a resource hog you would probably run into trouble...

    Ruby on Rails

    I personally have disabled Ruby on my VPS. To be honest I wouldn't have thought a VPS would handle Ruby on Rails very well. Cpanel VPSs are hard enough to keep stable.... RoR is another process to be running... What does everybody else feel about this? Neil

    Knownhost and CPanel logins and ports

    Good work but you might want to make one slight change, it should never been encouraged to login to WHM using the non-secure port, specially when using root. Neil

    Newbie in Need! All email going to Hotmail Junk folder on VPS domains

    Hi Tim, This is unfortunatly a big problem for most people. I found that SPF records did nothing for hotmail, but a slight modification to the webmail clients that I have installed under cpanel (squirrel and roundcube) you can get hotmail accepting mail. Hotmail's filters are extremely...

    More Space and Ram, etc

    As I've suggested before, you guys need to add a Tutorial's catagory for the forums, make this a real community! It would save you guys alot of time and effort creating tutorials as more expierenced customers are likely to post things. I was a little suprised you didn't have this catagory anyway...
