Using AutoCorrect Feature

AutoCorrect is a feature of SiteManager that will attempt to automatically fix common errors. At the moment, it will attempt to do the following.

  • Fix the attributes of home directory. Improper permission of your home directory could result in security hole or problem serving your web files.

  • Fix the attributes of web files. AutoCorrect will automatically fix attributes of web files such as HTML, or CGI.

  • Convert legacy Microsoft ® Windows ® text files to standard UNIX text format. Text files include most CGI scripts, HTML and PHP files. Using Microsoft ® Windows ® format will result in problems serving most CGI scripts.

  • Lowercase the extension of web files. File extensions such as .html, .cgi or .php must be in lowercase, AutoCorrect will try to automatically fix those.

  • Create support files, directories and symlinks if they are not already exist. Some directories and files under your home directory is required for some applications. Deleting these could result in problems. For example, PHP session support needs to store session files under var/state/php under your home directory, if this directory is missing, PHP session will not work correctly.
