    • No
  • Can I stream RealVideo/RealAudio/Windows Media from my website?
    • True streaming media is not supported, as it requires a separate server application in order to stream the media. However, through the proper use of RAM or ASX files, you can set your files to "stream" as they are being downloaded by the user. Please check Real's website or Microsoft's website for more information.

  • How do I set up a DSN? How do I write a database connection string?
    • DSN database connections are not allowed on the servers, due to the immense server load they cause and the problems they cause as well. We recommend using DSN-less connection strings, which are faster and take far fewer server resources.
    • Here are examples of database connection strings.
      • MICROSOFT ACCESS DATABASE CONNECTION STRING:
        "provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; data source= d:\accounts\LOGINUSERNAME\databaselocation.mdb"
      • SQL SERVER DATABASE CONNECTION STRING:
        "SERVER=SQLSERVERIP; DRIVER={SQL Server}; DATABASE=DATABASENAME; UID=USERNAME; pwd=PASSWORD; "
      • MYSQL DATABASE CONNECTION STRING:
        "SERVER=MYSQLIP;DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}; DATABASE=DATABASENAME; UID=USERNAME; pwd=PASSWORD; "
    • Be sure to replace the information highlighted in bold with the correct information for your site and database.
  • What is the SQL Server IP address for databases on the server?
    • The SQL Server IP address for your website accounts is 66.206.22.21. Use this IP address when creating connection strings and when connecting using Enterprise Manager and Query Analyzer.
  • What is the MySQL Server IP address for databases on the server?
    • The MySQL IP address for your website accounts is 66.206.18.255. Use this IP address when creating connection strings and when connecting using tools such as phpMyAdmin.
  • How do I change permissions?
    • The File Manager on the customer control panel is used for changing permissions as well. In the File Manager, browse to the directory containing the file or folder you wish to change permissions for, then click the icon next to the name of the file or folder. Permissions options will appear at the top of the page once it loads.
  • What if the FAQ did not support my question?
