What are PHP include_path values?

This FAQ was last modified on: Tuesday, February 23, 2016 11:55am

There are many circumstances where a domain administrator needs to tell PHP alternative locations for include files. The typical method for doing this is to include PHP directives in .htaccess files. We have preserved this method on webHosting using FastCGI and the htscanner Pear package. The location of important PHP add-ons such as PEAR packages are also stored in a different location.

How do I remove myself from WebHosting mailing lists?

This FAQ was last modified on: Tuesday, May 16, 2017 01:50pm

The webhosting lists are auto populated so you can't remove yourself or be manually removed. We send out emails to keep users informed about changes in webhosting and it is required to be on them as a webhosting owner or administrator. The only way to unsubscribe from the lists is to be removed as an owner or administrator for EVERY site in webhosting. If you’ve left Georgia Tech, most likely you weren’t auto removed as an owner/admin for a webhosting site and you should request to be removed.
