Hosting, some difficulties and none.

I am helping some people having 3ix.org as host.
One has a 5Gb storage account for 1$ per month
the other one got 30Gb for 3$ per month.

On the 1$ page all installations are a torture, they dont work without calling in to the hosting company

the 3$ page is a breeze, no problems at all.

Re: Hosting, some difficulties and none.

To tell you frankly:
I am slowly fedup with 3ix.org.

There is now every time a different person involved.

Initially they quickly realized that it was a misconfiguration of the server.

Now they come and ask what exactly the problem is after I have given them the links to see for themselves and after I gave detailed descriptions to them...

slowly 3ix gets 2 thumbs down from me

Re: Hosting, some difficulties and none.

After a lot of struggle I found one capable person.
I think the main problem is that at 3ix there are too many different people trying to help and no one ever reads what has been said before.
Instead they always start asking things that have been asked before or recommending what has been recommended before.

After I told them exactly which links and which subdirectories were affected one of those 'Einsteins' even came that I should try to CHMOD my public_html to 755.
