Do You Support PHP, MYSQL and/or PERL?

Share This Article [TheChamp-Sharing]

When choosing a hosting provider it is important to understand what software they directly support and offer. We’re often asked if we support PHP, MySQL, and Perl on our services. The short answer to this is yes, we do. A few more definitive points regarding this are listed for you below. 

  • All of our servers fully support PHP, MySQL, and Perl. Base operating system installations in a VPS or dedicated are minimal installs and would need the specific packages installed after deployment. If you’re including cPanel/WHM with your VPS or dedicated server these packages are installed along with the control panel and manageable/configurable from WHM after deployment.
  • All of our plans include unlimited MySQL databases. Our shared servers do have a size limit of 50M for importing databases via PHPMyAdmin but we are more than happy to assist you with the import of larger databases of any size. We ask that any databases over 50M in size are uploaded to your account via FTP. Once, you’ve done so and provided us with the name of the .sql file and the database you want it imported to, we will complete the process for you from the backend of the server. 
  • PHPMyAdmin is installed on all servers that use cPanel/WHM. This includes all of our shared, business, and reseller services. This application is there to aide you in creating and maintaining your MySQL databases.

As always, if you have any further questions in relation to this or any of our products, please contact us via our 24/7 Live Chat and we’ll be happy to assist you.
