4images gallery,account,setting up,databases.... I'm totally lost
I purchased webhosting from I40.net I also got my domain name...here's my problem I wanted to let a friend set up a 4images gallery in my space, how would I do that so she can access her gallery and mysql but not my entire cpanel. I'm so frustrated and have a headache now.... I hope someone can please help and explain it so my very tired brain can understand......thanks so much in advance

All you have to do is to set permissions everywhere to restrict the user so he/she can only view their area, not whole cPanel. I don't have much experience in Linix but I can help you to secure MySQL. Reset privileges on mysql.user and mysql.db so that she don't have any access on mysql.user (edit the user and un-select all checkboxes from mysql.user table). Insert a new record in mysql.db and grand the user all permissions on the provided database.
Hope it will help you take some further steps ."An army of sheep led by a lion would defeat an army of lions led by a sheep"
