It has been a good few days since I blogged last, but I have been trying to get my VPS (Virtual Private Server) configured and up and running over the past few days. I decided that it was finally time to spend a little bit more money and get my own private server to host all my sites on.
I brought the “Pearl” cPanel package from Future Hosting as the company were recommended by a few people on Twitter when I posed the question “anyone know a good cheap VPS provider?”. Twitter is great for getting questions like that answered within minutes!
I have moved danielfelice.com, explorewithme.com and freebpthemes.com so far without any major issues. It all went pretty smoothly as I took cPanel backups beforhand and then just restored the home directory and SQL database. I am currently having a small issue with the WordPress cforms plugin and e-mail, but that will be something stupid once I figure out what it is!
I’ll write another post in a day or two about what was involved in getting the sites up and running, and how much money it is going to save me!
