Hey: thanks; that solves my issue.
As for my comments, I didn’t mean to imply that the Knowledge Base didn’t kick ass; it’s just the amount of quick “get up and running” informatrion is so incredibly predictable, that I think the panel could benefit from have some sort of information screen pop up, at least the first time you log in.
Like, “hey, welcome to Dreamhost…here’s the basics to get you going”.
Searching a knowledge base is fine, but being able to instantly see (for example) the PHP version on your particular server, at the particular time you need that information is critical, IMO.
Just to clarify my point: I searched the knowledge base for “PHP version”, and came up with: version 4.2.1 as of June 2002…not particularly recent information.
I guess I got spoiled at my last host, because on the screen at all times, in small print, it said:
PHP version: 4.2.3
Perl version: 5.005
MySQL version 3.23.55
…and other useful stuff, like path to Perl/sendmail, etc.
So, when I logged in, I could instantly see if they had upgraded anything or whatever.
