  1. You certainly seem to dislike 1&1, as every reference to “Warth Publishing” is a similar comment. I’ve been using 1&1 since 2003, and am very happy. I chose them because they gave a year’s free hosting with ssh access. I don’t think I’ve even ever had to contact technical support – they just work for me.

  2. What, 1and1 is one of the cheapest, and I got 2 free domains for signing up (which is why I signed up in the first place). Been about four years and still find no reason to switch except annoying things like this every once in a while, when they would “just work” on my Ubuntu test box, out the box.

  3. [Solved] wordpress automatic update from version 2.7.1 to 2.8.4
    October 2nd, 2009

    After moving from Asmallorange to exabytes hosting, i cannot upgrade all my plugins and can’t upgrade my wordpress to the latest version 2.8.4

    I have search through everywhere but couldn’t find the solution to this problem.

    I have tried downloading core control and edit .htaccess but failed.

    Finally i solved it !

    1. Always backup your database and also your files / folder.
    2. Delete your old wp-includes and wp-admin directories.
    3. Upload the new wp-includes and wp-admin directories.
    4. Upload and overwrite all the old files in the root, EXCEPT the wp-content folder and wp-config.php file. (I repeat DO NOT DELETE YOUR WP-CONTENT and WP-CONFIG.php file)
    5. Visit your main WordPress admin page at /wp-admin, login and it leads you to an upgrade page, click upgrade and follow instruction.

    regard.
