Thanks for all your replies
Hello everyone, thanks for all your replies to my last post, i will follow up shortly to help you guys get into wikipedia. Unfortunately for me, personally i'm giving up on ehcp, going to install webmin instead, but thought i should offer you some advice. I expect a web hosting control panel to be just that, and ehcp means easy hosting control panel, but there's nothing easy about it.
I mean that i have to configure apache myself for cgi-bin, for .htaccess, for wildcard domains, but i thought the whole point of a web hosting control panel was to be able to do it from there, not from apache itself.
I mean in cpanel, i could add wild card domains and they would work properly, each different domain could be made to be a wildcard domain, but with ehcp it can't. You only get one wild card domain and all the others point to the same domain. And even then none of them point to the domain folder, but to the ehcp folder (new). That's absolutely no good to anyone. What is the point of www.yiphee.com going to my ip address? And every domain points to the ip address instead of it's own domain. It's pointless and i can't use it like that, i need each domain to be a wild card pointing to itself, not to the ehcp folder.
Then also cgi-bin, in webmin you just click a link to enable cgi. With ehcp you have to go into apache to do it, so what is the point of ehcp?
Also, .htaccess, well why can i not enable that from ehcp? Why do i have to configure apache?
At the end of the day, you're all really nice people here but this programme is only useful to those who don't really need it. Those who are smart enough to configure it all themselves, but my point to you is that ehcp is provided with an installation package which includes apache, mailservers, mysql, phpmyadmin etc, so why haven't you configured it all to work together before packaging it? It really doesn't make sense why you supply it non configured.
If you want others to use it, you really should consider repackaging ehcp to install with apache etc so that it all works out of the box. I am really disappointed especially because you all seem to think it's because i'm using a vps, but that's not true. I used the same vps several years ago, and installed ehcp with the entire package in the same way and it all worked, so whoever put this last package together has neglected to configure ehcp to work with the package.
Thanks everyone any way for all the help you tried to give me, but basically i need to get on with installing my web sites, not learning how to make ehcp work with apache. At the moment i can only have one domain on a wild card, and that is only if i move the domain to the /new folder, because all wildcards point back to new. It's totally pointless i really don't understand why you've built it this way.
If you get all these problems fixed i'm sure more people will use ehcp, but for someone who just needs his web sites working, ehcp is far from easy.
Best wishes, and hope you get it sorted out, Chris
