Subject: Re: [Mediawiki-l] Wiki Farm for MediaWiki
There is a 4th option though besides shared hosting, dedicated hosting,
and using your DSL line. You can run your own "virtual" linux box for
around $20/month using User-Mode Linux (UML), but you'd need to know or
learn about linux system administration. See this page:
I'm using UML hosting to move my wiki and set up other wikis too. I'm
hoping to switch to the MediaWiki engine if the memory & processor
requirements aren't too steep.
Thank you for this information. My problems are that my web host restricts
MySQL so the users scrip can not grant the permissions. I also have
problems which appear to be caused by my inability to log on as
root. Finally, and most of all, I am quite ignorant about Linux, MySQL,
Therefore I bought a computer so I can experiment and educate myself on
Linux, etc. Once I am halfway competent, I will look for a host.
