As is tradition, I will now complain about my new hosting provider. (I did it with Tripod and I did it with 1&1.)
Complaint #1. PowWeb features WordPress autoinstall. Great! Only thing is, it autoinstalls WP 1.2.2. The current version is 1.5. I ran the automated install, looked at it for five seconds, then deleted all the files (and all the tables).
Complaint #2. Apparently PowWeb allows me to upload only two files simultaneously via FTP. This shouldn’t be too much of an issue with day-to-day or even month-to-month site maintenance, but I uploaded WordPress three times in the last two days, and it’s a hassle. Additionally, some of the timed-out uploads didn’t resume, so I had to go through the entire WordPress folder structure and ensure all of the files were present and at the correct file size.
