New Enhancements in WordPress Manager
Through the PHP manager you can tune PHP. You can change the PHP version globally for the whole hosting account or only for a specific directory (website).
The most widely used PHP directives are selected and easily accessible in the Change PHP directives section so that you can change them with just a click. If you need to set other specific directives, go to the Advanced settings section. This section enables access to the configuration file of the currently used PHP version (php.ini). All available directives can be modified and set up so as to meet the needs of the hosting account’s applications.
When a certain application requires the use of a PHP module, you can access the PHP modules management section. PHP module activation and deactivation may be performed with just a click.
This tool enables you to restore data from the latest backup of the hosting account. From its options you can select to recover a certain directory, file and/or a database.
In the Restore Directories and Files section, you need to choose the directory or a file that will be restored.
In the Restore Databases section you can point one or more databases to be restored.
By choosing a date from the calendar you select from which of the available backups will be restored data.
Through the Request system backup section you will be able to download and save the latest backup of the entire hosting account. Besides the whole account’s content this backup also contains the existing email forwarders, filters and other system settings.

The New Backup Manager in cPanel
The Process manager enables you to view and end the currently running processes in your hosting account.
When a website is “working” i.e. it is visited by users, there are different background processes running in the account where it is hosted. Some of the processes use PHP for dynamic data generation of the web content. Sometimes you might need to end the current running php processes so that new ones may start.
For example if you have changed manually PHP directives in the php.ini file and you want to see the changes right after that, you have to click on the Kill all PHP processes button.
The Kill all processes button will terminate all active processes (ftp, imap and others). However, your hosting account backup processes as well as the active sessions for accessing cPanel will still run.
This tool enables you to fix permissions for directories and the PHP scripts or .htaccess files located in them.
To fix permissions for the whole hosting account click on the Fix permissions button. You can also select a specific directory by clicking on Show directories list.
Incorrect permissions for files and directories might be a result from uploading new content to your hosting account, unzipping archives, wrong settings for applications or other reasons.
This tool enables you to check the number of inodes in your hosting account. An inode might be any file or directory. You can view their total number or how they are grouped into directories.
The tool is also suitable for detecting excessive number of inodes.
You can view information on the number of inodes also in your customer profile, Resource Usage for the respective hosting account.
This tool enables you to track files bigger than 250MB so as to monitor and clean the disk space used by your hosting account.
You can also detect the exact location of the file as well as the option for removing it from the hosting account.
The SuperHosting Speed-Up section offers tools for speeding up your website. By using them you can take advantage of special technologies that are not included in cPanel by default.
Memcached Manager enables you to activate the Memcached technology for speeding up your website.
The technology records objects and data from the website and stores them in the account’s system memory. When a user visits the website the content does not need to be generated anew, but is served directly.
You need to activate the PHP Memcached module via PHP Manager so that your website can use Memcached caching. Then you have to go to the website’s settings and select Memcached as a caching technology. With most types of CMS adding Memcached to the website is possible by using modules or plugins.
The Redis Manager enables you to activate another special technology for speeding up your website called Redis.
The Redis technology also stores data from the website in the memory. Afterwards Redis uses them every time the website is loaded again. Thus content is quickly served to users without the need to await processes for dynamic generation.
To be able to use Redis for your website, you need to activate the PHP Redis module through PHP Manager. Then you have to go to the website’s settings and select Redis as a caching technology. With some ready types of CMS Redis can be integrated in your website by using an additional plugin or a module.

SuperHosting Speed-Up + Redis
SuperCache is a Web Accelerator that caches the entire source code of a web page, including its dynamic and static content. Unlike Memcached and Redis technologies that run at application level, SuperCache is in front of the real web server that serves the site.
SuperCache caches the final version of the page after all other processes have been completed, such as database queries and PHP code execution.
Loading cached pages by SuperCache eliminates the need to run PHP processes in the hosting account and the execution of database queries.
