I am not shure a php developer would need help from another php developer at
the hosting company.
What we need is:
-Sys Admin that understand php.
-Sys Admin that knows how to secure the server and be able to tell the
developer what to follow in order
to built secure code. If system command are disable, developers should
kwnow. The developpers should
know exactly their options and access rights. Then they have the choice to
built around that or host elsewhere.
-Time, we need fast, fast and very fast response. (2 days to create a
databases is 47 hours too much!)
-The ability to put some stuff out of the web server tree. (like file with
passwords or secret hash string)
-Honesty! I got a lot of "we will look into that..." or "no our server was
never spammed or attacked..." with
some company that where pure lies.
