Yahoo Hosting (3 posts)

    I was looking at the new announcement that Yahoo hosting now supports WordPress and does the upgrades automatically.

    When I click the link, though, I get a signup page. I don't see a FAQ, though. How do they do the installation and upgrades? If I customize my sidebar and WordPress 2.0 includes new code for a sidebar, how does Yahoo upgrade that? Do they provide stats like AWSTATS? Do they provide something like CPANEL? I can't seem to find a link for questions like that.

    Since SBC/Yahoo is my ISP already, there would be a significant advantage to switching, but I want to know more about them first.

    Here are some of the answers to your questions. http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/webhosting/wordpress/

    I curently have several WP blogs at Yahoo which I installed easily (first one took time!)with the good old 5 minute install.

    I have one of the new installed blogs up and running with several new plugins already installed (bastats). I will tell you though that the new install system is still in beta and may not be trouble free as I had to manually connect to the mysql.

    Thanks for the links febwa1976. As the questions are all in relation to Yahoo services (which only they or their users can provide answers to), it'll be a better idea contacting them.

    This is a WP support forum and thus, there is no official support for Yahoo hosting on this board.
