[FX.php List] Server Migration - Theory vs Real Life

I just this month moved PHP and FileMaker to a new host.  PHP pages were on
a major hosting company and FileMaker files were on a server in my office
and moved them to a FileMaker specialist, Longterm Solutions,  and it was
quite painless.  No problems at all and easy for me to make those changes.

I do not think I write that good code, but it all worked fine with no
tweaking.  Bob Patin and his company are very good and very helpful to me.

That has been my experience.  And I was not trying to make this a commercial
for Bob, as there are several very good hosting companies who add to the
this list, but Bob is a musician and seems to understand how other musicians
think, especially bass players :)

(I am all ears when I read on this list, you are all so smart on this stuff,
I all ways learn from reading your posts, even when I do not fully
understand what you are saying.  Thanks All!)
