Re: Hosting services with local xoops talent.
i can honestly say i have never had a problem with surpass whatsoever.
and as for XOOPS on surpass servers, never a problem like you mention..
and i have experience of surpass with both shared hosting and a dedicated server..
i haven't found a module yet that doesn't work on surpass servers.. apart from when the module required globals to be enabled and also required fopen to be on.
but as default globals & fopen are enabled on surpass.. i disabled them with a php.ini file.. are you 100% sure that the problems you had with modules on surpass were to do with surpass server settings? because i know lots of people on surpass using XOOPS sites without a single problem. the problems that have been on surpass with XOOPS was 99% of the time due to user mistakes and not surpass servers..
chmod can also be done with FTP on surpass.. the only thing you can't change with ftp on surpass is the owner attribute.. and i'm afraid there are hundreds of other hosts that do the same. it's a pretty common setup.. so that's not something you can blame surpass for.. it is an actual security measure!!
