    PHP Server w/ MySql wanted at good price


    Hello,

    This is my dilema, I currently have a web host that I thought was great, until my programming took me to a place that they do not support. They do have PHP and MYSQL, but they do not have all the PHP functions and support that I need (at the moment these include JPG image generation (they only support .png) and the FTP functions). I'm sure there will be more functionality I will want in the future as well.

    So to pose myquestion, is there a server that supports a large number of the PHP functions (basically everything that is listed at: www.cabanaboyslife.com/testtest.php) in addition to whats mentioned above that offers 300 megs of space, 25 emails, blah blah for about $30 a month or less and good customer support?

    And doesn't cost too much for domain transfers?

    Thanks everyone in advance,

    -Jon

    I have a site at www.liquidweb.com and have been very happy with the service, support, and features.

    If you take a look at the phpinfo for my site, it looks like they've configured it for jpeg and ftp support. I think they meet all the other requirements you mentioned as well.

    Thanks, they do have the FTP functionality, but not the JPEG support (they only have png). Does Liquid web's servers allow the mail function from it?

    Yep, you're right. I should have checked first before opening
    my mouth. I put in a request to upgrade php to support the
    jpeg functions.

    Yes.

    Hi

    We offer the above see our PHPinfo page @ http://server6.carpediem-it.co.uk/phpinfo.php

    We also have our PHP configured to allow use of imagecopyresizebicubic (See http://www.php.net/manual/en/functio...opyresized.php (Notes section)

    This improves the JPEG quality when resizing images

    Hi,

    I am setting up my hosting server right now (on a fast double T1 connection) I am using linux (Red Hat 7.1) and my goal is to create a system I could use myself (I am a developer and a want to experiment and use every apache/php module I know of and I need a good support for imagage generation and databases).

    I have had the same problem you have right know with my previous host, so I understand your position.

    Because I am installing the server right know I can install every feature I want (as long as it is open source or free), do you have any suggestions?

    Please give me your price range and your demands, and I will make you a good offer.

    bizzk,

    if you can install jsp support (i recommend tomcat), mySQL, and php4 for kicks, and also give me 1 GB of space and 10GB bandwidth a month (translates to ~4 KB/sec sustained transfer) with a 99.9% uptime guarantee for <$30/month, then you will have my heart. as well as my money.
