Ok well I am considering adding Installatron to the selection for my VPS clients, and was woundering what people thought of Installatron vs. Fantastico, and if you are a VPS provider, how many would go with installatron over Fantastico?
I don't know how it got broken, it was working a couple days ago. When users click the fantastico icon in their cpanels, a page opens that says this:
Fantastico is not installed at the default location /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/fantastico. Either move the Fantastico directory from it's current location to /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/fantastico OR enable ioncube loaders in WHM -> Tweak settings.
I enabled the ioncube loaders and that didn't fix it. So then I reinstalled fantastico and it's still broken.
I've heard of Fantastico and have seen it in CPanel with my almost-host (not my personal site...yet) MDDHosting (good hst by the way). However the guy from Aquarius Storage mentioned Installatron. Seems like a good deal for long-term hosts since they offer a lifetime membership...provided the hosts keep their server around for a few years...but other than that what are the pros and conds of each platform? Why do you guys (by which I mean the hosts who frequent this board) use what you do?
Want to order a VPS. Not sure whether to include the option of Fantastico/Xcontroller which can be installed along the cPanel. My question is will Fantastico/Xcontroller option by itself use up some of my valuable RAM and if yes how much?
I'm using Plesk on one of my webhosts (GoDaddy) and would like to know if anyone knows of a good Cpanel Fantastico-like option that allows you to update a string of sites with the latest updates. I'm more familiar with Cpanel.
I just got the coded files of my blog but since the coder was busy I went ahead and installed wordpress through Fantastico.
But I have heard that installations through Fantastico is not considered good because sometime it just messes up the database tables and other things. That's why it is recommended to install softwares manually.
Is it correct or just a misconception?
I am confused because now a days every hosting company offers Fantastico, if it was very bad no one would be offering it.
I have a server with CentOS, Fantastico, and RvSkins. I have a user that for some reason, Fantastico does not show up in there control panel, which is a RvSkins theme. Does anybody have any ideas on how to get RvSkins to show Fantastico's icon in the Cpanel?
I was wondering if I could get some information from those who frequent this site. I'm looking for some good hosting companies that specifically deal in some niche areas. If anyone could point me in the direction of some hosts with an affiliate program and deal in either ColdFusion, Adult, Fantastico, or Co-Location hosting, That would be awesome. The hosting company needs to be an overall good company as well, so if you've worked with a great company, or heard good things about a company that deals in the above categories, please respond to this post.
I'm undecided between an upcoming dedicated hosting server and am moving between Softlayer and ThePlanet. My decision partly comes down to support.
I've read many reviews on WHT about both companies, but not necessarily comparing them from people who have experienced both.
So my questions (keep in mind this is my first dedicated. I have used VPS in the past with good support) Which offers MORE support (not better) - I'm curious which company might consider my support questions as "part of the default service package" or "need additional service plan for that" More detailed support - my usual experience with support is support staff assume you already know a high level so it may take going forward and back 5 times via email to get a full answer Overall support satisfaction - any other comments
I've been with Hivelocity for 2 years. Occasionally we have problems, but it works. Their support staff can do very simple things relatively fast, however if you have some serious problems, e.g. failed disk and need to be replaced and do restoration from backup, it will be hell!
They will NOT do what asked in Reload Request, delayed answer to chat, no answer to tickets for many hours.
So far I'm very disappointed of Hivelocity support.
how common is it in the VPS industry to do custom installs/configurations/updates on request. For example, I don't know how to configure qmail and I will want someone to do this for me. Does this kind of service exist? Is it a standard to be expected or is it fee-based thing?
Do you personaly think that some companys don't answer right on support tickets or don't think the right way, (like dont care) when answering a support ticket in there billing system or support system then with the client comes on a forum such as WHT and posts what happens the provider comes and helps the client much more then he would of or had in the support tickets. I see many people come on wht and bring there problems they have with there provide, Im not saying this is a bad thing to do im just trying to show every else how i see it as that the hosts don;t care about there clients but when something goes public the hosting provider trys more to fix it...
Could it be that he or she dsnt want to lose customers thats the way i think it.
