Questions


#1

1.) what is the shebang for Perl ?
2.) Can the site, be allocated between sub-domains ?
3.) when the site is setup, does the server folder “I” named show up in the URL ? or is this part of www/public_html ?
4.) are you guys going to upgrade the “web panel” to cPanel, so we have easier/organized icon menus and better control ?
5.) why isn’t there a password center in web panel or profile to change ftp password ?
6.) why does the DreamHost pages show as Linux/Unix/Apache, but my site server shows as unknown ?

There are several that will work - “which perl” returns /usr/local/bin/perl

Yes

The site is served from whatever folder you indicated in the Control Panel when you “Added the Domain”. The only way “www/public_html” would show up is if you defined that as the directory for your domain.

That wouldn’t be an upgrade at all, and you would actually have less control than you do now with a full shell available. I can’t speak authoritatively for DreamHost, but I sincerely doubt they would ever do something like that - I hope not, because after learning my way around the DH Control Panel, I can’t stand to be crippled by having to use a cPanel based system anymore.

There is a way to do that - just edit the user and change the password … you can also change panel user passwords in your profile.

I don’t know - what is the url to your site?

1.) there are several paths to perl ? mmmm
3.) what I was more or less asking was the folder I designated when signing up … for example trash
would my URL, to say my site be http://www.mydomain.com/trash/index.html ? or simply http://www.mydomain.com/index.html (and yes, I know I don’t have to specify the index.html file).

Check to see what path you have established for your domain in the Control Panel -> Domains -> Add Domains screen (go to that page< and click the “Edit” link under the “Web Hosting” column and note the path that is indicated in the “Specify your web directory:” field.

If it says " /home/username/mydomain.com/", then that is the directory into which you place your files to be served when someone browses to http://www.mydomain.com/ or http://www.mydomain.com/index.html. etc.

If it says " /home/username/mydomain.com/trash/", then that is the directory into which you place your files to be served when someone browses to http://www.mydomain.com/ or http://www.mydomain.com/index.html. etc.

The directory indicated in that field is the “base” directory of the domain indicated.
