Ran into trouble with my previous web hosting company (DreamHost) and am in the process of migrating to a new one (Site5).  I’ve just imported this database saved from the old server.  It looks mostly okay, except for a number of places where periods are followed by “?” for no apparent reason.  I’ll see about fixing that later, but right now I just need to get all my stuff back online properly.

  1. I’m sorry to say that I have a fair amount of experience with Site 5 (my previous company used one of their packages to server their customers) and that experience was in the main bad. I guess the main tip I’d give you is to take regular backups of your data off of site 5’s server. My worst problem was an incident where they lost well over a months worth of my data and what’s worse their support department didn’t even get back to me to explain what had happened in nearly a day.

    Oh and their support guarantee that they will respond to a ticket within 24 hours? Yeah they tend to respond almost immediately with “We are investigating this problem” then leave it alone for as long as they like.

  2. Oh boy, that leaves me with a warm fuzzy feeling. :)

    Well, we’ll see what happens.
