That solves one of the two problems. The other is still enough to make Catalyst unuseful for most of its potential userbase.

That doesn't mean it's not excellent for those who can use it, of course — just that there are a great many people who cannot use it.

    Very late to the game but when this thread was written I was using Catalyst on $7/month hosting. Still am. Any host that supports fcgi and Perl will run Cat apps fine.

      You apparently haven't reckoned with shared hosting accounts that don't have shell access, and/or have other restrictions on what one may do with them.

        I'm unsure what you mean. I am aware that there are hosting accounts without shell access or even (S)FTP. I wouldn't pay for such an account, or use one for free for that matter, as without even ssh, I wouldn't have any use for it.

        My $7/month hosting has fcgi, mysql, svn, ssh, sftp, and plenty of other features. I'm running vanilla (F)CGIs and Catalyst apps on it and have been for 3+ years.
