Re: Best Web Hosting for Xoops

I must retract my promotion of A2 Hosting. As it turns out they oversell their resources, and even *if* they claim you can xfer 1tb a month of data, they feel its ok to randomly delete anything they think is available for download w/o notice.

I was paying ~$70 a month for a reseller account so that I had the filespace and xfer ability to offer freeware utilities to my users. I have done so in the past using HostGator, Arvixe, even Yahoo back in the day. This is the 1st time a host has decided to arbitrarily delete perfectly legal files from my site w/o notice.
They claim even though they sell a service, I'm not allowed to use it.

Stablehost Is my next choice. We'll see how it goes.

I'll follow up here, as I hope that somehow my trials and tribulations will benefit someone, somewhere, eventually.

May your host be with you.

Re: 403 Access denied

You shouldn't run Yogurt. It's wildly outdated and insecure.
There's a more recent social type of mod that Culex has developed.
You should try that instead.

Smallworld is the name of the module.
Here's his site. Don't know if he's doing anything with it currently.
culex.dk-Smallworld

Re: Best Web Hosting for Xoops

I'm aware this is hosted on Arvixe.
I seem to recall 1&1 being an EIG company too.
There are so many companies they bought up it's ridiculous to think they could provide customer service for all of them.

When I was a HostGator customer EIG purchased them, and promptly relocated the servers. My site was never the same. And instead of a guy in Houston answering the help desk, I got outsourced crap service from Pakistan.

Moved to Arvixe, only to have the same thing happen.
A2's customer service was prompt and to the point the only time I had any question for them.
I could actually make out what they were communicating, rather than the garbled, broken english I had seen with Hostgator and Arvixe.

Just my opinion.

Re: Best Web Hosting for Xoops

Any host that is NOT affiliated with EIG is your best bet.
Secondary consideration is cost.
Bluehost/hostgator/arvixe and a long list of others are owned by EIG.
They ruined the customer support, and services as soon as they bought them.

I've been very happy with A2 hosting. It's a bit more expensive, but I don't have to deal with "Billy and Susie" from Pakistan when seeking assistance.

Re: Visual Editor probleme in new RMcommon

People aren't ignoring you. We're waiting on the Red Mexico (RM) folks to see this.
They are the best source for assistance with that module.
I'll be looking for their help soon myself.

Re: Publisher 1.02 RC-3 available for testing

I haven't been able to break anything else on the 1.02 RC4 version.
It looks good to go so far.

As you know there are many configuration options that I need to screw around with before saying it's 100%, but I have it on a production site without any reservations.

THANKS!

Re: Publisher 1.02 RC-3 available for testing

It's better, but not quite right.

So after creating a new article, I went user side and edited the article. The original remains, but anything added or changes made revert back to original after save.

Comments do not show at all.


**edit**
Actually it isn't any better. You just added the loss of comments to the trouble list.
I didn't account for the cache time. The article still gets eaten.
I'm going to have to find a better solution.
What exactly are you using here?
