Website update: Still working the bugs out...

Bits & Pieces Saga Continues…


Abug2Abug1


Just an update of the Bits & Pieces fiasco that continues.  After a couple of calls and emails it was “suggested” that I remove WordPress from the new site – which I did, I cleared out everything.  Now I have put in a request to the fine tech people at GoDaddy.com to unsuspend the new hosting account so I can start all over fresh and not use the offending plugin that reaked havoc on their server.   The guy I talked to wasn’t sure they’d allow me to reinstall WordPress but that I should ask first if that’s OK.  So I politely did and now am awaiting a responce that I should receive “within 24 hours”.  I noted in my email to them that I hadn’t received a reply from the other email I sent explaing my problem 30 hours ago.  


So this issue will be settled one way or another in the next day or so.  If not to my satisfaction than I will change hosts and use every opportunity to slam GoDaddy that I can.  So, I promise that things will get back to “normal” very soon.


As you might have noticed I’m posting a few images.  I assume this is still against the rules at GoDaddy, but I’ve tried to do it the right way, but they’re not making it easy.  So don’t be surprised if they all disappear.  Hell they might even delete me… they already have what they need from me… my credit card number.


Stay tuned… and thanks for your patience.

If it's of any use, I have some spare server space and resources which you could temporarily use to import all of your old posts. You could then transfer that database to your host of choice and run from there?

Failing that, have you thought about just utilising wordpress.com? It's not like the self-hosted version with resource limits and what not and if you really want, you can pay an upgrade fee from the free version to associate a domain name with your account.

Is it okay if WE start saying GoDaddy sucks?

Good luck figuring out what you need to do.

I strongly suggest finding another webhost. Any webhost that you have to "ask permission" to install Wordpress is kind of a joke. I highly recommend Dreamhost.com. Super cheap hosting, one click install of Wordpress, and other scripts. If you sign up for a full year, use the code "skefnet" (I think) and that should get you $97 off if it's still valid. (for the record, I don't get any kickbacks if you use this code since it's for the full amount off)

I love that you haven't given up. Just MHO here...I'll bet you wouldn't have any problems with godaddy.com if you looked like those gals they use in their commercials.
