I've been posting recently on my struggles having moved my personal/consulting site from Justhost to iPage. Suffice to say iPage has not been a smooth Moodle environment. After some modifications of the existing 2.6 package to remove Read SQL modes to REPEATABLE READ I have it more or less "working." This install isn't going to work for me as I add users. I'm having problems even with backing up questions and courses hitting a 75k (read or write I'm not sure) database access limit for the mysql backend.
I am a BSA volunteer developing the climbing program for the National Capitol Area Council and leading up an e-Learning effort for folks training climbing instructors nationally. I develop the content, host and manage the userbase and don't mind supporting some costs out of pocket but the added users are going to blow up this install and I'm wondering if:
a) Someone can suggest a host for around $2-$5 a month that will actually work and have decent performance;
b) Someone would be willing to host our Boy Scout moodle courses?
I've read issues around discussing the MoodlePartners and seem to be out of my budget but would appreciate advice on the subject!
