Well, it's worth trying to get it working on the ISP, since we already have
the account with them, etc.. Though I have to say that it'd be pleasant to
have a real command line login to do the installs -- FTP-only access is
pretty limiting. But if we run into issues, moving to another ISP (from my
POV) shouldn't be too hard -- we've not done anything particularly
complicated yet. :-)

PHP runs fine on Windows servers. I have a test site with another provider,

and I can freely intermix ASP and PHP pages. Also, I run a
Windows 2000 Server at home, and downloading and installing PHP
was a piece of cake, and it works as advertised. I get identical results at
as I do at my test site. That fact doesn't seem to make any difference to
the folks
hosting our site.
$8 per month may be a little too cheap. Not having to deal with
phone menus, hold-times, and stuff that doesn't work (PHP isn't the only
thing) is
well worth the extra $4.50 per month I pay.

The error so far is pretty trivial -- the PHP is running into permissions
problems attempting to write to the filesystem. The ISP's claim is that "on
a Linux server this is easy to fix; can you move?" Apparently their tools
for managing the Windows servers are extremely limited (what do you want for
$8 a month?). I know this sounds a bit odd, but I've spent an hour or so on
the phone with them and gotten nowhere.
