[pmwiki-users] Linux or Windows

I use a Linux host, and I don't know Linux. I've picked up a bit here 
and there, and use the CPanel interface the account comes with. I don't 
have shell access, so can't use Linux commands directly. I used command 
line based OSs ages ago, just enough to get by, so have a rough idea of 
the ten most common commands.

I asked my husband about a few things (like what does CHMOD do), then 
found how to do them using CPanel and my FTP client.
