Hi, I just started with a dedicated webserver for the first time, and would like the following done (using ssh or ftp--I don't have a control panel installed):
-Recompile php with GD-support enabled (so my site can generate image thumbnails)
-Create an .htaccess file that prevents image-hotlinking and directory-listing.
-Create 3 MySQL databases.
These are all rather easy things to do, I just don't know how to do them. My site is a hentai site (i.e., X-rated). Thanks for looking and goodluck!
