  1. What I'd like to be able to tell them is their account is as secure in a Virtual Dedicated Server partition (not a virtual hosting account) as it would be on a fully Dedicated server where they were the only client on the machine. Would that be accurate? Seems like overkill to recommend a fully dedicated server for a corporate info site. ---
  2. I'm getting a question from a client that I'm not sure I know how to answer. It's about security in a Virtual Dedicated Server environment. They are looking for some assurance of security, the site would be storing proprietary company info that would be for their use only. If I understand this right, there are several independent partitions on a VDS, each with its own OS, web server, mySQL server, etc. The only thing they share is hardware resources of memory and disk space. The question that they have is: could someone with Admin rights on one partition access another partition on the same server? Another related question: who exactly would have access to more than one partition? Assume it would be only TCH admins? Thanks, Sam
  3. This is working for me now, thanks for the tips! I modified .htaccess at my root level. Now that I know it works, I can try changing at lower levels to restrict access a little. Thanks again for quick response. This is my first post here, but I've learned a TON from reading these boards. Great resource! Sam ---
  4. OK, I get that I can't directly edit the php.ini file on my shared server here. It looks from other posts here like I can override some values by setting them in an .htaccess file. I've got 2 options set to new values like this (I want to increase upload file size limit): php_value upload_max_filesize 100MB php_value post_max_size 100MB This doesn't seem to be working. When I use my PHP application to upload files, it still won't upload anything over the 2MB limit set in the php.ini file. The .htaccess file is in a subdirectory of my website (****/clients/). Does it need to be at root level? Or is there something else I need to change? I notice that the post_max_size value in php.ini is set to 55MB, while upload_max_size is 2MB. Is it possible that you could set both values to 55MB? This would effectively solve my problem. Thanks, Sam ---
