The next step is a trial installation and a try out of their features. I guess ease of installation is NOT a major point – as long as I can get ‘em installed. It is not as if I will be installing them on a regular basis!
My current hosting service has a good range of facilities – including .htaccess and mod_rewrite’s as well as most pearl modules, MySql and PHP. No Image::Magick pearl module for Movable Type, but it does have NetPBM modules to allow thumb-nailing. Overall I think I have all the pre-requisites.
So here goes. Stay tuned for the next installment 🙂
