WordPress 2.8.4 now available

Monday, September 7th, 2009


All our WordPress instances have been upgraded to the latest, current, secure version, 2.8.4. In addition, all new WordPress instances purchased and deployed from now on will be 2.8.4 or greater.

Here is the announcement from Matt:

WordPress 2.8.4: Security Release

We did this immediately upon leaning of the security vulnerability.

To our knowledge, none of our existing customers have been affected.

If you have not yet  logged in to your Admin interface since the upgrade, you may get a “Database upgrade” button, just press it and it should complete successfully in a few seconds.

Let us know if you have any questions or issues.


WordPress & mu now available

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

wordpress_buttonWe are pleased to announce that WordPress 2.7.1 as well as WordPress_mu are now available for hosting, to the general public.

Although we have hosted dozens of WP blogs for various clients and customers in the past, this is the first time that accelerated deployment on a custom and individual basis is available through our builds system.

We can host:

  1. An individual root-access vMachine for you with WPMU and unlimited* blogs and subdomains, which will have a single unified Admin interface (and database) for all blogs.
  2. An individual root-access vMachine for you with the latest WordPress and Debian’s one-copy-multiple-instances configuration, with easy admin for all your blogs, and individual admin interfaces (and databases) for each Blog. Again, blogs are unlimited*
  3. A shared-hosting WordPress blog, on our main WP vMachine, always maintained to the latest WP version.

The first two options are available under our regular vMachine root-access hosting plans, and the third is $100/year with one domain name included. Contact us today for more information.

All our WP instances come with:

We also have used and installed various other plugins on request, including WP-Forum, WP-Polls, and WP-eCommerce. (We also wrote the TrustCommerce payment gateway for WP-eCommerce in PHP).

As always, if you’d like a theme or plugin installed with your order, just place the name and link to it in the “notes” field when you place your order, and we’ll get it done for you.


*The number of blogs is unlimited, just be mindful of your bandwidth allocation chosen with your plan
