I work at a large international development charity in London, as International Operations Manager. I manage a team of Regional ICT Service Managers, based in developing world countries, who keep our users happy through fixing problems, setting up great connectivity and generally making sure users can do their day jobs.

I previously worked at the same place as International Network Systems Analyst. I looked after a bunch of ICT systems in offices in the developing world, as well as looking after systems in our HQ. I gained a lot of knowledge in that job, and the techy side competes with the people stuff in the new role, hence I still hang out here a lot.

I'm passionate about the use of ICT in developing countries, both in terms of dealing with the inherent problems for ICT in those places, and using ICT as a tool for development.

comment Security risks of having public phpinfo() page?
There are a lot of sites that expose phpmyadmin too - don't follow the examples of low security of other people. They may not value their data or integrity of their server as much as you value yours.

comment How to send email with my CentOS server?
+1 You don't need a mail server on the system to send mail, just as you don't need a mail server on your desktop to send mail. The mail program is just fine.

comment change SharePoint logo?
I disagree - that is the sort of change an administrator is likely to make centrally for the whole system. I speak as a Sharepoint admin. Leave the question here.

I agree with Muhammad - this sounds like something you should raise with your shared server provider.
