Well, I just completed rebuilding Bonnie's web site, http://groupwyse.com, and adding a blog and a forum. The blogware is the same as this blog, BlogEngine.Net; the forum is the same as our forum, AspNetForums. The real learning was about using LunarPages 'plesk' and the 'mylittleadmin' tool for SQL Server 2005.
Plesk does let you do a lot. Indeed, I keep finding new things I really can control as administrator. However, the overall documentation is very poor (as usual), and some things remain elusive, such as controlling redirection.
MyLittleAdmin, on the other hand, is so much like the SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Manager that it usually only takes me a little poking around to find exactly what I want. I'm so used to being able to control EVERYTHING that it's refreshing to have something so similar available to me.
