Banned scripts?


#1

Before I sign up for a DreamHost account, are there any scripts that are not allowed? In particular, I am curious about phpNuke, YaBBSE, and PHPBB.

Thanks, Amy

YaBBSE is definitely fine; there were problems with the old flat-file Perl YaBB being a resource-hog, but the SE version is very good and I’ve had no problems running it at DreamHost since the early days of the project.

In fact, it seems to go relatively easy on the MySQL Conueries, so I recommend it. (if you haven’t seen those explained in DreamHost’s marketing materials, conueries are basically a limit on the amount of database access you’re allowed, to keep inefficient scripts from hammering the shared servers and causing everybody else’s scripts to run slow.)
