Have you ever thought it could not come worse? Yeah - Oh then go to IMHOSTED.COM.
Since 5 days they are trying to move an Account to a modern PHP5 MYSQL5 (Titan) Server and still we are missing lots of files.

But thats not all TYPO3 isn't anymore working with IMHOSTED.COM. They still advertise it but they are simply don't tell you the truth. They have disabled so much

functionality in their PHP Apache surrounding that Applications which need i.e. exec () won't run anymore. TYPO3 is calling ImageMagick thru exec ()

But even more here the list we discovered until now:
disable_functions =exec,passthru,proc_open,proc_close,proc_get_status,proc_terminate,shell_exec,myshellexec,system,shell,system_exec,posix_getpwuid,posix_getgrgid,posix_kill,ssh2_exec,pcntl_exec,ini_restore

Here some of the warnings you might receive: (in the example we used a clean fantastico Install from Imhosted.com!) Even this isn't working at all!

Warning: ini_restore () has been disabled for security reasons in
/home2/user/public_html/1234567890/t3lib/class.t3lib_db.php on line 897
Warning: ini_restore () has been disabled for security reasons in
/home2/user/public_html/1234567890/t3lib/class.t3lib_db.php on line 898
It seems that there is no adequate ImageMagick installation available at the checked locations (/usr/X11R6/bin/, /usr/bin/, /usr/local/bin/)
An 'adequate' installation for requires 'convert', 'combine'/'composite' and 'identify' to be available
Warning: exec () has been disabled for security reasons in
/home2/user/public_html/1/t3abc/typo3/sysext/install/mod/class.tx_install.php on line 1927
Possibly these functions are disabled due to security risks and most likely the list would include a function like exec() which is use by TYPO3 to access ImageMagick.

As you can see on this List simply forget to run a high quality CMS Site at IMHOSTED.COM or one of their connected Hosting places

Try to look for a better hoster who qualifies for you to host your high quality websites!

Thanks a lot! Unfortunately there are still files missing and the folders are still showing "no records found" in cpanel

Here the List of folders where still the files are missing: all paths starting from /home2/...


/123/iVideo/2002 ...-Diverses/2002_01_01 Lisa Diverses Silverster Klostermuehle-Luho Chor

/123/iVideo/ lots of subfolders don't hold anything but we did not have empty folders there! and lots of our videos are still missing!





Then on the site

you can sill see those exec() errors and no pictures show up.

WHERE is Graphics Magick
and WHERE is image Magick
Warning: exec() has been disabled for security reasons in /home2/.../public_html/1/t3abc/t3lib/class.t3lib_stdgraphic.php on line 2532

as you can see here the pictures are not showing up because of this exec() problem!!!!
No Graphics - we don't know why this error is showing up as the site hasn't been changed for wbout 1 1/2 year and worked perfectly before with lots of images and absolutly no error - especially no exec() error!
Why does this now appear
Where does it come from
What actually have you changed in the settings i.e. php??? what was there before

We weren't able to discover why this happens as we tries the site on another host and it is showing up perfectly, so it is 100% a server problem - or a problem of your server settings as it was the same with the php.ini problem max mem. You changed it without notice to customers and lots of TYPO3 sites were down as you set the default to 16MB and TYPO3 needs at least 64 to run good in Version 4.2.1

I need the paths to the Graphic Programs and also an exact report about what else has been changed!
