Re: Adding boards I have to go between www.mysite.com and mysite.com
Hmm, can't really tell the distro on that one- that kernel version number looks a little weird to me. It probably doesn't matter though.
As far as hosting recommendations- although there is a specific issue with Dreamhost, I think once the tweak mentioned elsewhere is in place (and I really should roll that into the distribution), I think it works fine there. I don't have any direct experience with shared hosting however.
I have a dedicated box with theplanet.com and have been very pleased with them. Dedicateds are expensive compared to shared hosting of course. I also recently started playing around with a virtual private server with prgmr.com - resources are a bit thin but it's cheap. I've heard good things about linode and slicehost. Problem with VPSs are the really small disk allocations you get - running something like ochiba, it can start eating through that quickly. Plus, you also have to handle the syadmin side of things.
This was probably not at all helpful (' . .)
