Forum OpenACS Q&A: AOLServer/PG Hosting
its a bit of a prob. for us at the moment.
We've been trying to find a hosting company that will allow us to
install OpenACS4.2 (i.e. AOLServer and Pg), and had very little luck
in the UK... 'no bespoke web servers' is the usual, fairly ignorant,
Of course we could rent an antire machine and solve the problem, but
thats not really suitable for this project... we just need a fairly
modest size, moderate cost hosting for a small site.....
Anyone know of a good one?
hope this helps u out
I don't know if they're running AOLserver or the mod_aol hack.
the environment to the client, not the client to our environment.
If you want AOLServer w/ OpenACS4, fine ... if you want mod_aol w/ OpenACS3,
fine ... basically, we will do our best to make sure what you need, and what version
you need, is available ...
Could be just what we're after. Canadian dollar also makes it good financial sense for us... I'll pass this on to my Operations Director and hopefully we'll be in touch soon.
Thanks for your help
www.sigmer.com is a London/Brighton UK based hosting company that are currently setting up hosting for two PG/openacs sites for me. I would be inclined to talk to the Brighton office and ask for Malcolm
interesting, but I couldn't any info on how you folks actually do it.
Could you point us to any more info, so we can better understand it?
I almost got a client I'm working with right now to go with hub.org so that I could use OpenACS 4, but as usual, marketing came on the way
We've recently managed to persuade Sigmer (www.sigmer.net) to do Aolserver+Postgres hosting on shared servers. We know them quite well and their pretty flexible. They are based in brighton with servers in Telehouse. Prices start around Â£40/month. Try mailto:email@example.com, or send me a mail with your requirements & I'll call him up.
If you have a reasonably busy site that requires, say, 1G disk space and 2G bandwidth/month then hub gets expensive. Also there was quite a bit of downtime but I think that was a specific problem which is probably fixed now.
I agree with everyone here that hub are very responsive and helpful.
