Hosting special issues PLEASE REPLY ASAP

Post by jwilmes »

Dear Marco,

I am looking for hosting php-res on your server. I used the application for over more than 2 years. I regularly have issues with my ISP regarding access and owner rights (see my forum issues). This has lead to multiple reinstallation requirements including the loss of data. Hosting this on your server is an alternative. I do have some questions for this:

- Can the data be transferred from my current provider to your server without having to re-enter this? If yes, who takes care of the migration?
- If I use your server, I only use this for php-res. How do I return to my own website from your application?
- I have some PHP programs that I have embedded in my website. This PHP software accesses the MYSQL server for pricing information. Can this be continued on your server? In other words, is the MYSQL server directly accessible?

Looking forward to seeing your reply,

Jeroen Wilmes

To this ,you can simply use the built in backup feature in php-residence. It backups all data in the DB that is related to php-residence into a "custom" php file.
You can use this php file to import all the reservations/guests etc. etc. i.e. the DB into any installation of php-residence.

And yeah, you probably need to have same version of php-residence on both the place you do the backup and on the place you do the recovery.

Thnx for your reply. What about my last question? Can I access the MYSQL databases directly from my own PHP programs?

I don't know that. A php-residence representative(marco) should maybe answer that.

Update:
Why don't you send a e-mail to marco/php-residence with your questions regarding their hosting.. You might get a faster answer.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to offer you this on the forum and if I'm out of line, let me know and I will delete this post.

But if you need a regular webhosting service that ain't so expensive, where php-residence works just fine and has a open MySQL(i.e. not blocked by firewalls).
Let me know, currently my website is in Swedish, but I can give you all the details in English if you're interested.

Digitaldruid hosting does not offer support for php (apart from the files created by hoteldruid) and there is no direct access to the mysql database. You can run it along with another hosting (as most booking engines work) as explained for example in these tutorials:

http://www.hoteldruid.com/en/doc/drupal_booking.html

http://www.hoteldruid.com/en/doc/joomla_booking.html

The advantages of this hosting include timely support, automatic upgrades, the modules for instant booking and channel manager.

Regards,
Marco
