    i have this client who purchased windows hosting iis7 ( :ugh: ) and gave me a website to put up

    one of his requests is to put a "sign up" form where someone fills out a form and submits. i used a simple php script to take info from form and email a successful email message to the applicant and the information to the owner.

    now this gaydaddy does not send out email to client, but to owner. i got to this point after pain stakingly tryin to figure out why the fuck the script would not send successful email

    first problem: turns out windows iis 7 has new line commands interpretations as \r\n instead of just \n and mail daemon was fucking up

    second problem after fixing first: shit ends up in spam folder because header does not match up with actual mail function

    ok so i fixed it, and now when i have 2 mail functions in 1 contact script it sends 1 ok, the other one never gets to customer

    should i just fucking switch over to linux? i dont care bout the 24-72 hour propogation

    im just really not used to windows hosting

    theres no fucking .htaccess + php.ini file

    it just feels weird. what the fuck do i do if theres no .htaccess file?

    get new hosting, godaddy is great for domain buying but shitty for hosting

    I had problems with a cart system, It would not install, I can't remember all the details, but in the long run in order for it to work they recommended I get their vps hosting and then I may have access to what I did, idiot that hired me would not listen to me about hosting, so I had to redo the whole fucking cart system with another one and redo it all, was not too happy about it

    GoDaddy hosting is seriously ten million thumbs down. I tried to install wordpress with fantastico and it just kept saying "installing..." for 3 hours until I just switched him to hostgator.

    Rather than trying to do PHP on Windows, I'd just use ASP and CDOSYS

    I was and then on top of it the client ran out of fucking money, so I stopped working on his site, it was about 75% done, it functions, but not the way he wants, but I got like 2300 of the 3500 we agreed on, so I am not going to do all the database and membership area for free

    his users can upload what they want via the website and he can log into ftp and get what he needs

    but I will not deal with godaddy anymore for hosting, they are worthless for hosting
