Expression Web will do what you need to do. It should be comfortable for you to use since you're familiar with the Microsoft UI paradigm. It also corrects a number of problems that the old Frontpage had. While there are some other very good web editors available there will be a significant learning curve for them.

Yes, of course. You may use SVN (Subversion) or GIT, which are both integrated into the Coda app. Since Mountain Lion, you have to do a bit more to use SVN by the way (see Coda FAQ).

Have you thought about learning HTML & CSS and using good ol' Notepad? When you write HTML code yourself you can keep it clean and retain complete control. There are good text editors like Notepad++ that have syntax highlighting and other features to make development easier.

If SSH is turned off then you are probably using shared hosting. This means you can't install software on your server. If you want custom software on your server you either need to find a host that already supports it or get a dedicate server or VPS. If you already have a dedicated server or VPS then you need to have them turn SSH on for you as there is no ...

There are loads of them on Dynamic Drive - horizontal and vertical. You can use them in any end-user project, but not resell or redistribute them.

Well, there is a comparison of web application frameworks in a Wikipedia page. Also you may find this Stackoverflow post on Grid system comparison useful. But the question is, does these comparisons make you capable of choosing the right framework? Of course Not! As Aurelio mentions above, you need to know your goals, the language you're going to use, your ...

If you have physical control of the servers, you should be able to get access to the server, and change the password. A live Linux CD or DVD should get you full access to the file system. You can then copy the system off with or without changing the passwords. Does the system create backups? If so, you should be able to restore them to another system ...

I would suggest you read this blog post from WooThemes who hired Sucuri ( http://sucuri.net/ ) to review their code. http://www.woothemes.com/2012/09/every-line-of-code-audited/ Sucuri are well known for keeping WordPress and other sites safe. Experts are rare on oDesk or Freelance websites. You are going to find many foreigners who write code but don't ...

My answer is in no way any sort of legal advice. I am not a lawyer and have actually no idea how copyright and licences may or may not work in your country. The GNU.org website pretty much covers it all. I quote (emphasises by me): If a program P is released under the GPL that means any and every part of it can be used under the GPL. If you integrate ...

You're looking for a Learning Management System (LMS), preferably one with SCORM support so the logging/verification can happen. For heavy use, I would normally recommend Moodle as it has the widest variety of plugins and modules available for SCORM integration and also provides the fine-tuning and configuration options necessary to create a customized ...

The short answer is that with shared web hosting, you don't do your own package management. While you usually get shell access, you don't get sudo or any other permissions you need to do this. Installing even a moderately complex package would require extensive and non-trival rewriting of install scripts. It is well beyond a PITA, it is (IMHO) impossible. ...

It depends on the type of web hosting you are paying for. If you are on a shared hosting plan (a lot cheaper) you can't do all of the stuff you mentioned above. But if you are on a dedicated server (higher price) you usually can do all of this stuff. The CPU/memory limits depend on the hardware of your dedicated server or the amount of resources they give ...

Using cracked software is a big risk, learning a freeware alternative pays of more in the long run, take for example GIMP and Adobe Photoshop, at first doing things in GIMP wasn't so smooth, but now you can do a really great job with it. Also I think free software changes less radically overtime not necessitating to ramp-up on learning where is stuff and ...

I'm using digixmas directory submitter (~2000 websites for $15 or ~150 websites for free). But another good way I found to submit sites is using fiverr. There are many people that offer to manually submit your website, for only $5 - which I find awesome !

There are tools and services that will automatically submit your site to various directories; however, it can be dangerous to use them. Links from some directories can actually penalize your site in the search rankings. It's always best to manually submit your site to each directory and take the time you need to format it best for that individual ...

mmm. I don't know about a desktop solution, but you should try to integrate your adsense account with Google Analytics, so you can create your own dashboard with a lot of cool stuff and stats, and they will be updating/improving over the time. I made a empty screenshot, it would be cool to show with data, but this is just for demostration purposes. P.D. ...

Have you tried Coordino and MediaWiki??? I just tried both in one of my demo project and it worked fined. Please have a look at it. I hope they will work for you. Open Source!!!

Softonic's legal information page says (formatting by me): "For the purposes of preserving any possible intellectual property rights in the event a user or third party believes that their legitimate rights have been infringed due to the inclusion of certain content on the website, legal@softonic.com must be notified in writing by sending an email to ...

Magento Ecommerce seems to be the platform of the moment, with hosted prices from $15 - $125 per month and a free community edition. There are also number of Wordpress plugins that fulfill the same functionality (and WP is fully open source). In general you could do this with any platform so long as you tag the items correctly when they're added to the ...

MagCloud is a print-on-demand magazine service from HP that lets you offer digital versions of your issues. There's a potential problem in that they seem primarily focused on the print side, and it's unclear to me from their basic information if you can offer the digital versions only. You should be able to determine that quickly while evaluating.

To continue the thought DisgruntledGoat started... I would also encourage you to consider getting a text editor and learning how to code. HTML and CSS are easy languages to learn, if you have an interest in that sort of thing. The pay-off in the long run for leaning the code rather than relying on an editor is huge. My favorite text editor is EditPlus ...

FlatPress meets most of your requirements, in my experience. I've been using it for a private blog for about a year and a half. Point-by-point: It was simple to install and reasonably simple to install a theme. Development seems active (latest update was June 2011 as I type this). I've not really looked at the code, and don't know PHP that well anyway, ...

If your software has no affiliate program then definitely it violates your own software distribution and marketing TOS if there is any. You don't have to worry about adsense or adwords TOS in this case. Even if your software allows such distribution check if they're not bidding on your keywords. You can contact them to take the ads down. If they refuse to do ...

I really like Redmine for things like this. You set up each client as a project then you can have an ongoing (and easily searchable) wiki or timeline of events. It will hook into your VCS so you can even see code changes between clients and projects.

I've considered building something like this in the past, but I ultimately came to the conclusion that displaying mockups and getting client feedback/approvals is best done through a project manager to streamline the workflow, and many project management apps will allow you to do this, including: OpenAtrium - strictly speaking, OA is an intranet/team ...

Have you tried FTP/SFTP? SSH may be disabled, but if you had FTP, you can create directories and upload files. This could be labor intensive, but I've worked with software that did this. It had you upload (via FTP/SFTP) a CGI program. You then accessed this program via the browser. When you did that, the program initiated an installation. I thought it was ...

The two best known open source packages for this would be webalizer and awstats, while both are often installed on a server they can be run at a command line with no problem, even on Windows. If you want really easy to use there are GUI front ends available.

Splunk is probably worth a look. You'll have to go into more detail as to what you're looking for to start making requests like "easy to use," I think. 10 years is a lot of data to look through and you're not even saying what you're looking for. Whatever it is may not be easy to extract in the first place.
