How do I tell if a server supports php/mysql? There’s no cpanel, I’ve only got access to an ftp account, which I can only access through school network.
And if it doesn’t support php/mysql, is it possible to install it manually onto the server?
I was planning to use php/mysql to do a little content managing… So if I can’t install it onto the server, are there any alternatives to content managing that is easy to do and don’t require coding knowledge to input content?
Thanks. But I am a bit worried… It’s a school server. You know, those irritating things that you can view the site from anywhere, but when actually editing the site, you need to use the school server. Not to mention that it’s Chinese, and well, let’s just say I’m not too optimistic.
So, are there any alternatives for content managing?
If you’re worried about it, you can always check it with what Apostrophe mentioned:
Create a file (in any text editor) and inside the file type:
Save it as info.php
Upload it to your server, using FTP, and then, in your web browser, navigate to that file eg. http://www.your-site.com/info.php
If your server has php/mysql you will see a page listing all the properties that are supported.
