You might want to check out SliceHost or Linode. Neither though offers plans around what you are looking at ($10/mth). But then again I wouldn't pay less than $20/mth for a decent VPS. Less than that and you probably aren't getting the best service. Both have great tools available on their control panels, good customer service, good uptime and reasonable ...

mod_python is not being actively developed anymore. While Apache says that doesn't mean the project is dead - Currently mod_python is not under active development. This does not mean that it is "dead" as some people have claimed. It smiply means that the code and the project are mature enough when very little is required to maintain it. But, it is ...

When the dl GET variable is set, Facebook's servers add the Content-Disposition: attachment header. See RFC 2616 for details on the Content-Disposition header.

Cron is only run "once" at specific time or "every" minutes/hours. It doesn't check the return code. But a wrapper script CAN check the output. I suggest that you launch a "wrapper" to your script, then, the script will check itself for the presence of a file "/tmp/runcomplete", check for the run counter in another file, well, you get the idea. From my ...

I've found these stats to be the best: http://w3techs.com/technologies/overview/programming_language/all If you click any of the server-side languages listed, it'll tell you the the 10 most popular sites using that language. The page also breaks down what % of each version is being used. Here's an overview of how they did the research, which to me ...

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.

Learn to use a good source control package (I recommend git) to keep track of your changes. Source control can be useful for tracking both source files and configuration files.

I wouldn't want to miss ack. It's basically a recursive grep but designed for searching sourcecode so you can e.g. use --python to search only python files etc.


2

Well, you've left out the really obviously useful grep. If you don't know grep, you're really crippled. You'll also need to understand how pipes work, and how redirects work. Also, you should have a good understanding of ps, kill, and (if you're working on a vps) free. Also the difference between stderr and stdout. In Python, those commands are generally in ...

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.

NASA and PBS use Django all over the place.

Pretty much any popular framework will meet the exact same number of requirements. Things like input validation, user authentication, caching, and being open source are standard framework features. And they're all capable of being used to write specific features like ratings, comments, tagging, etc. The more popular a framework is, the more plugins it might ...

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

I suggest reading the official Python docs that explain how to run Python on a web server. In short, they recommend WSGI. For Apache, there's a "quick" installation guide on the mod_wsgi Google project page. If you're using a Python framework such as Django, a guide to using mod_wsgi with Django is available. Finally, if setting up and maintaining your own ...

I found the question a little confusing and If I'm right I assume that your main objective is to serve files to your mobile phone using pretty styling? If that is true then you shouldn't need to go though so many loops to set something up. Apache2 allows you to edit the main file listing directory so you can style it pretty much anyway you want. There is ...

You should be able to do this on a global scale using webapp.RequestHandlers class FormHandler(webapp.RequestHandler): def post(self): if processFormData(self.request): self.redirect("the specific url") else: Also this your find more support on stack overflow since this is python based coding.

Depending on Hostgator you may be able to use virtual-python.py to create a local copy of python in your home directory and install packages within that copy.

Shared hosting accounts rarely, if ever, allow packages to be installed on their server as it will affect all sites on the server and they can't allow that. Plus for the price you're paying they wouldn't want you to. This usually requires a VPS or dedicated server.

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.

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 ...

You need to check whether they support django or you can ask them to install it for you. Good luck

WebFaction offer Python–several versions of mod_wsgi–and you can choose in Amsterdam. They run Apache normally, but you can set up nginx yourself if you really want it. It's shared hosting, but you have near-VPS access to do such things; it comes in handy.

As Mike Keller has said Linode is a good choice, they are reliable and cheap (starting ~$20US). You can choose from many Linux distros and install all applications you need. I've got one, and I have php, python, apache, subversion+trac, etc. If you need your provider to install software for you then you're asking for managed servers, that cost money so if ...

You may be best setting yourself up with a VPS, rather than plunging for shared hosting. That way you can set it up exactly how you want. VPS's can be almost as cheap as decent shared hosting. It is a little more work to set up, but there are plenty of guides online.
