Because I can’t whois from my computer (winxp) easily, and my dreamhost account runs on linux, i set up a small sript to use ping, via exec(). Now its stopped working … isit just my account exec() has been disabled on :frowning: :frowning: :(??

Any alternitive ways to easily whois sites?


If your script is a) written in PHP, and b) not being run as CGI, then yes, exec() is disabled. The fix is to enable PHP-CGI for your domain, via the panel, or per-directory by adding the following line to .htaccess in the directory in question:

AddType php-cgi .php

If you want useful replies, ask smart questions.
