I’ve had so much pain with hosting at Media Temple that I have moved Packet Pushers to a new provider today.
If you notice anything wrong then send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll fix it. Hopefully I’ve caught most of the problems.
Rant on Media Temple.
I can’t say that Media Temple was bad, but my experience has been poor. Lousy support (email questions take one day for each questions and answer & I stopped bothering after the last time), poor uptime but the worst is the way they force you to configure the system which forces bad administration and painful choices (running WordPress in FCGI mode since the Apache is chroot) . The documentation they provide is awful (“community driven”) and they won’t answer any questions that isn’t related to their hosting system.
I was never able to get WordPress running properly at MediaTemple and finally gave up trying to work out why. I’ll be migrating all my blogs over the next week or two.
