You must have shell access to view the php.ini file.
This is not possible without administrator rights.

The uid field contains the unique ID of the data record.
The pid field contains the ID of the page of the parent element.
The pid field contains the check ID that ensures the consistency of the data record.
What meaning does the CType field have in the tt_content table? (1)
It contains the caching type.
It contains the content type.

A cleared field is created in the data record and the value of the field is set to true.
You want to operate TYPO3 with the PostgreSQL database. Is this possible, and if so, how? (2)
You have to activate the database in the Install Tool.
PostgreSQL is supported by default, so you can select it from the 1-2-3 wizard during installation.
You have to install the dbal system extension.
You have to install the ADOdb system extension.
Unfortunately, this is not possible, as TYPO3 only works together with MySQL.
You have to create a file manually when extracting TYPO3 sources and opening them in the browser in order to initiate the first installation. (1)
The statement above is wrong, as you can initiate installation without creating a file.
Your administrator has set up TYPO3 in a standard installation. He has sent you the access data to the TYPO3 installation and you can now log on. When you call the module System > Install yet another password request appears. What is this password if it has not been changed by the administrator? (1)

How do you call up the Install Tool? (2)
You click on Install Tool in the backend.
You click on Install in the backend.
You click on Configuration in the backend.
There has to be a valid ENABLE_INSTALL_TOOL file in order to reach the Install Tool. This file can be up to 60 minutes old, after which it is deleted. How can this be prevented? (1)
It cannot be changed because the lifetime in the file sysext/install/Classes/Service/EnableFileService.php is hardcoded into the file as 3,600 seconds.
In the Install Tool section All Configuration you can record the KeepFile key in the Install Tool so it does not delete the file.
By entering the string KEEP_FILE in the ENABLE_INSTALL_TOOL file, you prevent the file from being deleted.
You have to enter an empty KEEP_FILE file in the typo3conf directory.
For security reasons, this is not possible.
You suspect that certain system requirements in your TYPO3 installation are not met. How do you check this? (1)
You execute the systemcheck.php file, which is located in the typo3 directory.
The Basic Configuration section of the Install Tool contains an overview of the system requirements that have been met.
The System environment > Test setup section of the Install Tool contains an overview of the system requirements that have been met.
You install the Core Configuration Check extension and have the system checked.
Only a system administrator can check the system requirements.

The menu items of TYPO3 are rendered dynamically as graphics in the main menu of your website. Even though you know that the corresponding TypoScript code is syntactically correct, the menu items are not displayed (or the created graphics are empty). How do you solve this problem? (1)
You have to make appropriate modifications in the Page TSconfig so that the graphics are created correctly.
After you have manually deleted all files in typo3temp/, the graphics are displayed correctly.
You check the path in the Install Tool, in the All configuration section, and then adapt this as necessary. Then you can check the graphic functions in the Test setup section.
You only need to delete the files in the typo3temp/menu/ directory, to recreate the graphics display them again.
Every installation directory of TYPO3 seems to contain a directory called fileadmin/. Does this have to be the case? (2)
Yes, the fileadmin/ directory has to exist in exactly this form.
Yes, but the spelling is not case sensitive, so the name could also be FileAdmin, for example.
No, the directory can be given any other name.
No, the directory does not need to exist.
How do you check whether TYPO3 is able send emails? (1)
You have to contact the administrator.
You can send a test email from the Basic Configuration section in the Install Tool.

If the TYPO3 frontend is working and generates an output, the email function will also work without errors.
What can happen if the typo3temp directory has no write permissions for the web server in a new installation? (5)
