Im a virgin when it comes to Linux. I am currently running WHM 11.30.6 (build 6), CENTOS 5.8 x86_64 virtuozzo on a VPS. I have cPanel 11.
What I am really looking for is some documentation that explains things in detail. Ive looked through the online documentation and quite honestly it doesnt really tell you HOW to do things. http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/A ... cs/WebHomehttp://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/A ... cs/WebHome
For example, I need to modify the php.ini file but none of the options given are what I need when I click on it when trying to configure php. http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/A ... ildPhpconfhttp://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/A ... ocs/PhpIni
Like in the link just above, it doesnt TELL me how to get to the /usr/local/lib/php.ini. It only says that it is wiser to edit the php.ini file through the editor. Okay, although I understand that, it doesnt provide me the options to do that.
The documentation is OKAY, but not at all what I had hoped for as a novice admin.
One thing that I need to do is to configure my php to run on DSO with PHP 5.3.10 but theres not an option that can do it. I dont know that I can. I would prefer to run FASTCGI but there is apparently a lot of tweaking that needs to be done.
Also, I need the edit the php.ini file due to some mysql extension issues.
Heck, I cant even find the php.ini file. Documentation says that it could be here /etc/php/php.ini but how do I get there? Or, how do I recompile php?
I would love to have access to documentation that explains things in DETAIL. Not only GUI functions, but behind the scenes functions with command lines, etc. if thats how I need to get things done.
What resource would give me, the novice, the best overall idea/schematic if you will of both GUI and command line functions? And, will the fact that Im using cPanel complicate things even more? And, if so, what would be the best resource for that ? Im a fairly quick learner, and Im ANXIOUS to get my hands on some good documentation. If I'm missing something that should be VERY obvious, PLEASE tell me!
Any input would be GREATLY appreciated!
