Possible hosting change

I'm investigating a host change due to the amount of database errors this host has. The downside of this is the forum might be offline for a couple of days If I do make the change I'll be sure to do it off peak and not during a tournament.

That's good Rusty...for everyone to take a little break. That'll calm everyone down a little bit!

No problem, Rusty. I've found the site quite slow to load the last week or so. Also I came in here as a guest for the first time in a while and found adverts in the top post of each page. Not sure if that's a regular occurrence or not, but it was off putting trying to read the post.

I've added adverts for guests last week as the other ad was not doing so well. Its actually working not to badly. Its not something I really wanted to do but the site has to make money somehow.

Rusty your in Australia I'm in the USA I have six sites I have built for people.
three pay for their own the others I pay for.
Being the cheap person that I am I use 1.00 a month sites. Everyone is happy.
The one I use has unlimited bandwidth.
Except for the church site none gets hits like yours.
My question does it really cost all that much to support mylpga?

It costs around 13 dollars a month on the current plan. However this host can no longer support it and trying to find a suitable host is proving difficult as there are a few technical issues and the hosts recommended are 20-30 dollars a month. Bandwidth isn't the problem really its got more to do with SQL connections on shared hosting.

This hosting has a chat they might be able to help you for less money.
I don't host huge sites so the one dollar plan so far is all I need.
They have others.

What kind of stuff does it take to set up a forum? I have a buddy starting to look into a travel forum for his senior travel group. I have done web pages before and a long time ago connected a web page to a Filemaker database. That would be hard for me to re-do these days and impossible for my buddie. I just thought forums were as easy as blogger.com these days, but it sounds like it is more complicated.

The software is not really that hard to install, it has some pretty good instructions. You need to set up a mysql database which is pretty easy if your host has cpanel. There is a bit of learning curve once the software is installed. We run vbulletin which cost a bit of money to buy. but there are some free forum software available. Let me know when you are ready to set it up I can give you a hand if you like. Or if you would like me to do an install for you I can do that no problem.

I will let him know of your offer. It might be awhile, they need to try other stuff (blogs and email). But what they really need is a threaded forum.

When I did my stuff I had a local ISP that would host all the scripting languages and stuff required (I can't even remember any more, geez it has only been 10 years).

I have noticed that many forums I attend seem to have similar organization and formatting. I assumed they were using the same software or all hosted by the same place.
