Root shell access


#1

Hello
I need to install some HD video codecs for a video upload site. I was told by DH tech support that root access is not allowed, even on PVS. I’m wondering how I will be able to install the codecs.
thanks

It sounds like it’d be part of PHP, so you’d need to compile your own PHP.

You’ll probably need to install your own ffmpeg-php.

It’s a bit of a drama, but it can be done :wink:

You can follow the link Scott provided to get you on your way to forming a script to install the packages required to get it all up and running. One thing to keep in mind - add AUTOMAKE and AUTOCONF to the beginning of those Advanced PHP Install scripts.
