unfortunately, I don't think phpinfo will work on GoDaddy due to the fact that they have php_safemode=yes!

Lame, I know, which is one of the reasons I got out of their grasp. Another thing - Will XOOPS work on a safe enabled host?

To learn the root of your GoDaddy account, I can't remember whether I emailed support or if I found it in the faq, but it WAS one of the two.

Hope this helps!

Hey,

Yeah, phpinfo gave me something like: d:\hosting\. Like a computer syntax? I've emailed them, but they give me a copy-paste answer, not even reading my email.
It's really retarded when you go with big companys.

Also, I have CuteFTP, and you know when you right click, and click properties, you can find CHMOD, well.. it's not there. I don't know if they've disabled it or what. =/

d:\hosting\


That's a Windows server, so chmod won't work.

phpinfo and many other commands are disabled on godaddy, however, they do have a script that you can make to find out your php information.

You can also find more information on their windows hosting by going to:

http://help.godaddy.com/topic_list.php?topic_id=97&

Unfortunately, I was unable to look up anything to do with permissions. Maybe you will have better luck then me, if you haven't already gone over their FAQ's; which I'm sure already have.

One way around this is to use Frontapage (yuk), but at least it will maintain your file permissions when uploading. This may be an alternative solution if your in a real pinch and have a deadline to meet for your client.

I'm a unix guy, so I can't help much beyond that when it comes to windows hosting.

(I'm on a short time frame and have to run, hope this helps)

your client can't be persuaded to use another host? Perhaps?
