Switched Hosting Providers

I just got too annoyed with my previous host’s lack of support for scripting and restricted access to a compiler for me to be able to solve the problems myself, and found a different company to provide that service. I’m now with Apis Networks, which seems to offer a product more in line with what I’m interested in doing with space online. Real support for Ruby on Rails, Python and Django, along with compiler access (gcc) and freedom to build my own local versions of whatever I like, which I’ve already done with Python (2.7.2) and will be doing shortly with Django. (Note to self: add /usr/local to $PATH in .bash_profile). I’ll let them do their own marketing, but for me, this is a much better value for the services I get. I’ll post more comments about the service as I actually use it.

Progress so far:

  1. Installed Python 2.7.2
  2. Installed Django 1.3.1 (prefix=/usr/local/)
  3. Installed setuptools 0.6c11-py2.7
  4. Installed flup 1.0.2 (prefix=/usr/local/)
  5. Installed MySQL-python 1.2.3 (prefix=/usr/local/)
