|Re: [PLUG] Avoid Arvixe at all costs!|
*WordPress, plus ability to install the various addons - Be aware that Wordpress is a habitual security problem. It would probably be good to consider a CMS that isn't, or a static site generator that removes the problem entirely.
The site is already designed and paid for. I wasn't consulted on that. I'm just required to make it available to the world.
*MySQL (support WordPress) - I believe that MariaDB has supplanted MySQL in CentOS. Not a big change though, I think it presents the same API.
OK. The website needs to run.
- Dovecot is fine as a POP/IMAP server. What do you plan to use for an MTA? And what do you plan to use as the account backend for Dovecot?
Whatever they make available and support.
- I've come around to the viewpoint that webmail is a profoundly horrible idea and should be deprecated: if you're serious about email, use a real email client or go home. But if you need roundcube/horde for the clueless ignorant newbies who are too stupid and too lazy to learn, fine.
I'm required to provide this. No one uses webmail for anything serious except in a pinch, but sometimes you're in a pinch.
*Ability to do granular backup/restores (individual directories/files), at more than just overnight interval (this can be an extra-cost option). - Why do you want to do this? What is it that you anticipate breaking so badly that you need to do this more than once a day?
Maybe I should have written "other than just overnight interval"--I need copies from last night, the night before, and last week.
So that when the user tells me they accidentally deleted the folder containing all their current project emails, I can restore it. Even if they don't tell me for a few days.
