How do I do BASICAuth using .htaccess and .htpasswd?

This FAQ was last modified on: Tuesday, January 16, 2018 10:28pm

If you would like to protect a subdirectory with a username and password that you supply rather than using the CAS authentication method you have two choices.

What are PHP include_path values?

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.

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.

While you may always access your database from the Plesk panel with phpMyAdmin, sometimes site admins prefer  to use a graphical user interface tool for administering their MySQL databases. This can be useful when fixing a corrupt database or updating a schema during a software upgrade.
