My host has disabled FSO for all their clients - told me I'd need to
find another way to do things.

Is that normal practice??


<tip type="client admin" author="miinx">

Have a 'standard directory structure' to use with new clients, is a
great idea.  Here's mine, which I keep in a folder Clients\$template\:


Now, whenever I get a new client (or even just a lead) I copy this
directory structure template into its own folder, and I'm set for
whatever this client throws at me.  Saves time and ensures consistency.
