Software Installation Through Fantastico Is Not Reliable?

Dec 7, 2008

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.

What Do You Think Of Fantastico?

Sep 15, 2008

What do you think of Fantastico?

I have noticed that they have fallen behind with the updates. Some scripts are 4-5 versions out of date.

Do you think they could do better or is it just to hard to keep up with the scripts.

Installatron: $2.5/m

Fantastico applications are offered almost everywhere, but so far I've only found one web host that dares to provide Fantastico support.

Can anyone here recommend any web hosts that do provide support for the 3rd party applications available through Fantastico's installer?

Fantastico Broken

May 26, 2007

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.

How do I troubleshoot?

Fantastico Deluxe Or Installatron

Jan 24, 2009

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?

Just Want The Most Reliable VPS Available

Jun 4, 2007

I'm looking for the most reliable VPS/network I can get my hands on. I'm willing to pay a premium for 99.999 - 100% uptime. I don't want 99.5, that translates into two or three very painful outages a year.

I don't need a managed system, or any control panel. Debian etch is preferred.

Anyone else out there shopping primarily for reliability?

Is Dreamhost Reliable?

Jan 5, 2009

Just read about some deal they're having where they're selling you a domain and 2 years of unlimited bandwidth hosting for 24 dollars or so. Is this legit?

Is quality sacrificed for this kind of pricing?

I'm currently with downtownhost and they are amazing by the way but if it's that cheap, I might be forced to switch.

What Are Some Reliable Web Hosts...

Mar 20, 2009

I was wondering what some reliable web hosts would be for hosting a website that would provide enough bandwidth to allow downloads of text files and also a forum. I just want something to get started with. However, I want something that is easily upgradeable. TO be honest I just really need the name of a few reliable companies that aren't scams or anything.

Reliable VPS Hosting

Apr 13, 2009

I've been using a Ubiquity VPS for a bit over a year now, and have been generally satisfied, for two reasons:

1) The performance has been excellent. It's still pretty fast considering how much we're using it, and I was able to record just over 200 days uptime.

2) The support seems to be competent and no-BS. Nothing ticks me off more than being lied to, or being told that something that is clearly beyond my control is my fault. While there have been various teething problems (I signed up just before they did a big infrastructure upgrade, and then the whole "someone pulled the plug on the entire company thing".

We're now looking to procure some additional virtual boxes. Not out of any slight to them (primarily to do with SEO, but also a matter of eggs and baskets), we'd like to get them from different firms.

I can generally handle the technical stuff running on the VPS myself, so in terms of ongoing support (once the basic "provision everything, get forward and reverse DNS for the server's IP set up" is done), all I really need is a company that will keep the lights on, the machine plugged into the network, and replace hardware when it fails promptly-- in short, self-managed VPS.

Each one would likely host only a single site, but the sites are apt to be fairly database-intensive. Linux-based.

So what I was thinking, to start with, would be:

* 512M memory
* 20G disc
* 500G transfer

or higher. I'd honestly prefer a bit more memory (the current VPS, hosting probably 75 domains of minor traffic, is a 1Gb setup, and will occasionally breach the red line; I've kept it reined in to 20 simultaneous Apache processes to keep memory use low).

I shopped around a bit, and was able to find a variety of providers offering packages of this size (and frequently larger-- 768M/40G/600G seemed a common size) at about $50-60 per montt.

I'm leaning towards a VPS primarily because of the assumption that the low end fully-dedicated boxes are relatively poor spec-- low permanent capacity (compared to the burst capacity I could get on a decent VPS), and most importantly, no redundant drive subsystem. Data loss is my big fear. That, and really weak performance.

But of course, nobody is going to tell you "Your VPS is on a Duron 750 shared equally between 32 VPSes", "We have RAID. When there's a roach in the lunch room, we spray it." or "We really suck at support and end up taking it out on our customers."

So who can be trusted in those departments?

I'd prefer someone with no-gimmick pricing, because we're researching today but may not provision immediately.

Is DiscountASP.Net Reliable

Jan 29, 2008

I have been doing some research to try and figure out the best host for my ASP.Net website. DiscountASP.Net seems like a very good option. However, I have read about some serious downtime they had due to two DDOS attacks they had. Apparently this brought down all hosted sites for days.

Other than this, DA.Net seems quite reliable. My questions are:

1. Are the DDOS attacks on DA.Net something I should be worried about? They claim to have improved their security, but I wonder why they were brought to their knees twice?

2. How come only DA.Net was attacked on such a large scale twice? Is it a sign that hackers are targeting it?

3. How good is the infrastructure that DA.Net has?

Reliable ASP .NET Hosting

Jan 8, 2008

We currently have our sites hosted with 1&1 but after a nightmare of intermittent downtime, poor service and complex setup requirements for basic ASP .NET sites we have given up!

We want to leave the domain registrations with 1&1 as they do that side of things well and I donít want the issues of moving domains to another provider.

But what we need is a fast reliable host that will allow us to leave our domains with 1&1 and will host our websites, their subdomains (and hopefully emails if possible) with the domains still registered at 1&1.

Also the things we need to resolve from 1&1 are:

1 - using asp or aspx custom error404 pages for all webpages, we can do this for aspx sites though our web.config but all other extensions go to a single .html page (not very dynamic)

2 - different error 404 pages per domain

3 - ability to do extension-less url rewriting in ASPX - we could not do this with 1&1 due to the inability to change IIS settings for the application to forward all requests to the asp .net application

4 - different IIS applications for each domain without requiring a folder in the url, 1&1 require us to move the domains into folders for this to work but moving our domain to a sub folder therefore loosing links to pages in google etc

5 - great technical service and attention to problems

Also all of our customers are in the UK, is there any latency or issues with slow loading using say a US based host?
