Works with caveats

0 - 9

  • 1and1 (fails running PHP 4, but works with PHP 5. Add the line: AddType x-mapp-php5 .php to the file .htaccess in your main wordpress directory to enable PHP 5. This also appears to not only affect Core updates but some Plugin updates as well.)

A - D

  • Aplus.net - Does not work with Akismet due to requirements asking for permission for all outbound http requests to provide port number, IP address or hostname and reason for request.
  • Aruba.it (Italy) - Automatic upgrade doesn't work, unless you put in wp-config.php the following variables:
define('FS_CHMOD_FILE',0755);
define('FS_CHMOD_DIR',0755);

After you have done this, all settings (should) work perfectly.

Note: This refers to the Linux version hosting; Windows hosting does not support WordPress correctly and Aruba does not give support for it on this platform.

  • Cedant - Does not work with Akismet due to requirements asking for permission for all outbound http requests to provide port number, IP address or hostname and reason for request.
