#define FLAME ON ... :-D

First, you have to find a hosting company that doesn’t presume that the letter “P” in “Perl” doesn’t stand for “PHP.”   (Tip:   if they spell it PERL, i.e. uppercase-only, run like hell ...)

I had a site running for many years on (Omitted) without trouble, even though their Perl was ancient.   But one day it “unexpectedly” just stopped working, and when I logged-in to check it, the ulimit was set so small that the cpan command wouldn’t run!   (Fortunately, cpanm still did.)   The number of Apache-workers running on that ridiculously-tiny VM was ridiculously-large, and I am quite sure that every site except mine was running PHP.   (They had a Big Phat PHP with all the options turned-on.)   So, I loaded-up my site and moved it to a much nicer home.   They never bothered to announce any of the changes that they had obviously been making over time.

Mind you, it’s not that I have anything against PHP, because I don’t.   (“If it on-ly had a brain ...”)   ;-)   But, shared hosting companies know which side their bread is buttered-on, and they squeeze a server until it hurts.
