I always cringe when I have to set up sites on new hosts.

It usually means fiddling thru silly icons to configure directory permissions and ODBC data sources.

Thank god for server.MapPath("\")!! Or I never would have found the database.

My host at Crystal Tech might be a little more costly but I've yet to see a control panel that works as well. The snappiest ASP.Net panel I've ever found. There's no typing in paths, just treeviews of the directories, browse and point.

I've just discovered that I can't create new directories while using FTP with Cirrus Hosting. Now I have to go thru those silly icons to "add a new directory" so I can actually use Filezilla to drop my files.


Database and directories are set up, that's enough for my nerves for one night.
