Before You Install

We all know that the Doteasy Ultra Hosting and Unlimited Hosting plans come with PHP and MySQL capabilities, and hence, you can run different programs and applications on your account, such as blogs, content management systems, image galleries, forums, shopping carts, wikis, etc. We like to see you making the most out of it, but unfortunately, it’s often frustration rather than excitement we see.

Common fears and dilemmas:

  • Overwhelmed by the number of choices
  • Discouraged by the installation steps and scripting terms
  • Disappointed that the software is not exactly what you thought and the key features that you needed somehow “disappeared”

We have all been there and we know how important it is to have resources and assistance. That’s why we’ve decided to put together a new mini-series: Before You Install.

Each week, we will test a different script/software/application on a Doteasy demo account. We will put together information on installation, activation and customization as well as neat tips and tricks we’ve found, and we will post them here on Doteasy Blog every Friday. If you have experiences you want to share, free feel to send in your comments.

At this time, we’ll only be looking at scripts and applications written in PHP as it is supported on all Doteasy Ultra Hosting and Unlimited Hosting (Linux and Windows) plans.

So, be sure to come back tomorrow for the first Before You Install! You can also add Doteasy Blog to your RSS reader for update and alerts.
