If it has been going on for a month now then either the hosting company is completely incompetent or you haven't been pushing for a resolution as vigorously as you should have. If the former then witholding payment of your hosting fees might 'help' them :) Did you know before you signed up that they were using cutting technology -- Apache 2.0.X and PHP 4.2.X -- which apparently don't play well together (yet). Your best bet is to stick to the tried and tested Apache 1.3.X series, maybe you can persuade them to downgrade? -- Jason Wong -> Gremlins Associates -> www.gremlins.com.hk Open Source Software Systems Integrators * Web Design & Hosting * Internet & Intranet Applications Development * /* The better part of valor is discretion. -- William Shakespeare, "Henry IV" */ -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
