I disagree with the notion that most sites don't use a CMS, particulary given the global reach of Wordpress, and the selection of Open/Closed Source CMS available, and the obviously successful business models. If you're serious about running and managing a website then a CMS is essential IMHO. If you don't want to use one the simplist way to approach the ...

I'll give my thoughts on VPS, as I have no experience in cloud. I was in the same boat as you in terms of having my shared hosting no longer being reliable in terms of performance. I had roughly 20 websites on the same account, but only a handful of ones that were more than basic html/css/javascript. I chose to get a cheap VPS(I pay $40/mo) and moved ...

I believe the problem might be due to auto redirecting the root url ('/') or automatically setting the language, should I exclude robots somehow? Correct. Googlebot et al don't send an Accept-Language header, or accept cookies, so it'll see whatever the site defaults to without it, which would appear to be English in this case. You can verify this using ...

Yes, The Onion uses Django for the A/V Club part of their site. Apparently they are gradually migrating the whole site towards Django. They answered a whole bunch of question on reddit. Also, reddit.com which serves millions of page views each day, is written in python, but not Django. I believe they use Pylons but I could be wrong.

LAMP is a lot to take on, if your focus is Python, you might want to try CherryPy. "CherryPy is an object-oriented web application framework using the Python programming language. It is designed for rapid development of web applications by wrapping the HTTP protocol, CherryPy is the web server itself, and has a very small foot print." CherryPy official ...

I suspect Django would be a great place to start, especially with the Django Book which is where I cut my teeth on using Python server side. I was very familiar with PHP and Drupal as well as a little Perl and Ruby on Rails for writing web apps beforehand but Django is extremely pleasant to use and tends to emphasize best practices. Once you've built ...

You could use Yahoo Pipes to combine the feeds into a single feed, then simply display the latest n feed items with Python or JavaScript. Mark Pilgrim's feed parser might help, as may the Django snippet to parse an RSS feed here.

IE Bug Fixes I would personally get a strong template down before working on any crazy features. Do the HTML/CSS then move on to the APPs. It might help attract good freelancers if you have everything else done.

How many is a bunch of sites and how have you set up daemon mode? Initial impression would be that if hosting multiple sites that you would be worse off using embedded mode because you can't individually control number of processes for each. Thus if a site only really needed a single mutithread processes, you balloon out memory usage by number of child ...

There is probably an easier way. You can do a lot of this with Bash. Here is what your shell script might look like. Install Script: Is git installed? Yes / No Install git Download latest git repository (you can host your scripts on GitHub or BitBucket or privately) If you don't want to use git, just have the shell script wget download your zip file from ...

Most likely, this is a posix-permissions-issue or an selinux-context-issue. I would check to see that the png files in question are readable to your web-server user/group and are permissions 755. To check selinux contexts, try an "ls -RZl /var/djangoblog" and see that the contexts listed are the same for files that are served and files that are not. After ...

if you are looking for a system that integrates document management, knowledge building and sharing together with a video-community platform, you may consider trying Plumi that's built on top of Plone.

You're not providing much in the way of requirements, but have you taken a look at MediaCore? It's essentially a (Python-based) video-focused CMS with everything already in place to set up a community site. There's also a hosted version with free trial if you want to check it out first.

Maybe with Symfony (1.4 or 2.0). A lot of plugins (called bundles on Symfony 2) has been created. Symfony 2.0: symfony.com (bundles) Symfony 1.4: symfony-project.org (plugins) No experience with symfony payment bundles, sorry, but good for work.

I found this tutorial - http://joemaller.com/1467/django-via-cgi-on-shared-hosting/ Running Django under CGI is not impossible. It just kind of really sucks. Someone else tried it on the same host and hit a problem, but got a solution - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3340996/hosting-django-on-a-shared-fastcgi-host Other tutorials are available ...

Support for Python 2.5 has been deprecated and you should move only install version 2.7 upwards on Google Engine. These are both documented excellently at Developers Google: Install Python 2.7 on Google App Engine Django on Google App Engine

It turns out that I don't need to do anything special, but there is a slight twist with the urls: static content in /public/ (e.g. <mydomain>/public/foo/index.html) is served from a url missing the /public, so the example would be served as http://<mydomain>/foo/index.html. Obviously, trouble will ensue if static directories and django urls ...

I currently host a Python app on Google's App Engine and expose an API to a static JavaScript-heavy web app that runs on a cheap shared hosting account elsewhere. It works great and it's cheap to run. It looks like you can run Django on Google's App Engine too.
