Emergency problem with easy solution but big prob


Okay basically, we have the problem:

My mate is on a long vacation and I have no contact with him, all I have is FTP access. Is there anyway that I can ask DreamHost to rebuild the Apache conf?

fitnesschan.org is the one experiencing this problem, thanks for your quick response.


No problem! You can still contact support even if you don’t have account control panel access using the contact form at http://dreamhost.com/contact.cgi.

Just use that (leave the “subject” pull down to “Sales Inquiry”), and provide them that domain name, and the info from your first post here, and they should be able to help you.

Okay done, thanks. How long do you think it’ll take them to fix it?


You are welcome. There is no way to tell (it will depend on the queue for support, and the nature of the problem that is causing the condition). Hopefully, it will not be long. :wink:
