I'm thinking of using SilverStripe for a project in Australia that I'm hoping may end up being quite large (as in complex & lots of traffic).

Anyone got any recommendations for an Australian host? I have a reseller account with Ilisys already, but they seem to be getting a bit flaky, and I'd be worried about scaling there. I have a site on a dedicated server at Ultraserve which can't be faulted but is pretty expensive, plus a virtual server with Anchor that I'm pretty happy with, though the memory requirements would worry me a little with their virtualisation.

Any thoughts/advice? TIA.

Update: Just found the recommended hosts thread and there are three on it who all offer various levels of shared hosting. Prior to that I was assuming I'd need some form of dedicated or virtual server, now I don't know what to think. Any advice would be appreciated.

My only thought is that Bulletproof hosting ( ) hosts whirlpool, and they seem like a reasonable (if expensive) mob.

I have at least 10 silverstripe sites set up in regular shared hosting with Quadra ( - Have never had any issues with these guys, the support is great and silverstripe works great (except for a few minor permissions problems uploading files that I've been able to get around)

Hello Distinct,

I'm having problems with uploads to a site hosted at Quadra Hosting - can you tell me how you managed these problems?

My problems are:
Uploading af file gives me [Warning] chmod(): Operation not permitted
I'm using this fix to get passed the invalid file for upload error.
(If i leave out the chmod part, the file is uploaded and can be choosen and used in the CMS)

Creating folder, gives Error creating folder, no further info.

Looking in the Webshell at Quadra hosting, i see that files uploaded with FTP have different owner/group than files created through the Webshell.

Hope you can help
