Spell Check/Aspell
« on: January 17, 2005, 03:10:18 PM »
Does your Host need to install the Aspell or can you download the files and upload to your host [ftp]

I don't think they carry it.. and I am not sure if they would install it.

IF i can download it then install the files.. Is it easy to do?  without any coding to write up?
in that directory would it need to be placed in.

This is something your host has to do. Any good host should install this for you if you ask them to.

Thanks for your answer,  I was on the phone with my host ..
 I asked them to please install Apsell,
They told me I would need to install this myself..

Should I call them back.. If so, please let me know just what I should be asking.

Well ONLY the host can do this for you, so if they told you to do it, I may suggest moving on to another host as your current one doesn't seem to know what's going on :P

I would try either calling them back or e-mailing them, and maybe explaining that THEY and only they can install it and it's something that you cannot do.

Thank you for you answer.

I think I will send them an email this time around.  ;D


If they do not have it on there system,  Will I need to know the URL of Aspell and if so, is this the correct link?

http://aspell.net/

would the Dictionaries also need to be installed on the host end as well, anything else I am over looking before I write out the email?

Yes, yes, yes, yes.  You need to say that they should install the latest version, and not install pspell at all.  But then, they should configure PHP with the --with-pspell option (even though it's not pspell.)

guess all I can do now is wait

If they cannot come up with the install for me, what would be a good host that does have aspell install?
