Rocky site move to GoDaddy

Here’s my work log for the week of March 11, 2013:

– I moved an ecommerce website running Sunshop from 1&1 to Godaddy. The move was precipitated by 1&1’s decision to only support php 5.4 come April, which many programs, including Sunshop, do not currently support. The move was a bit rocky, because getting the SSL certificate working correctly took GoDaddy way to long! We worked around it, though and otherwise the move went pretty smoothly.  This contrasts with another customer service experience…see below.

– Another client with several ecommerce sites (again Sunshop) was having issues with timeouts, and also some SSL certificate trust problems.  The hosting provider Knownhost, provided excellent support, and stuck with us until the issues were resolved.  I learned a lot about CA Intermediate certificates in the process.  Knownhost now joins my favorite hosting providers: Rackspace and Liquidweb.   All provide amazing service.

– I helped a new client with some emergency work getting an script working, for taking payments online.

– The week rounded out with a lot of php and perl programming.  Overall it was very busy week.
