With another host I've used php includes to bring in a variety of page content. I previously used htacess to enable my .htm pages to display the php include.
I'm having a devil of a time trying to get that to work again. If anybody has used Traffic on Steroids , that is a the program I've used to rotate the includes.
I can't even ftp my htacess file to my directory, let alone see if it works.
I'm no wiz at this stuff, I seem to just be able to get things to work, but the change to dreamhost has been a little challenging.
As long as I'm asking, I've used C panel before and the stats and logs were really good, does dreamhost have something similar.
