Simple automatic backup for Windows 10 laptop, have Dreamhost, ASO

My elderly Dad's laptop got infected with some ransomware and it turns out he has no backup. I'd like to set him up with something simple and automatic to back up his files periodically. I live in another country and can set things up via TeamViewer to his Windows 10 laptop and maybe get some local help. I also have accounts on Dreamhost and A Small Orange, can I make use of those? What's the state of the art for easy backup solutions? [more inside]

How to migrate blog and wiki away from Dreamhost — and to what?

I have had a number of technical difficulties with Dreamhost that have worsened over the last year and my account is up for a two-year renewal. I have two sites: one a WordPress blog and the other an old MediaWiki installation. What are good alternatives to Dreamhost, and how would I migrate the WP and wiki installations off their servers and onto the new hosting service?

Need reliable, affordable hosting service with cPanel

It's time to move on from my mail losing/delaying hosting service, despite their generally excellent support. In 2014, who would you recommend? Must haves: reliable, under $15/month, supports WordPress, uses cPanel. Nice to have: Canadian, green, some other awesome attributes of your choice. (I could get this domain hosted free at DreamHost as an add-on to my backup domain, but I can't stand their admin panel. As an alternative, try to sell me on the DreamHost panel!)

Intermittent 404 errors on Wordpress

I have my own Wordpress blog (hosted on Dreamhost) that's been driving me nuts. Intermittently I get a 404 error when posting or when moving through the admin pages. Simply reloading usually brings up the page. My Wordpress is up to date and so are my plugins. Besides the usual "disable all plugins and re-enable one-by-one" what other debug can I do?

Wordpress 1.5 Exporting/Upgrading Woes

I have an old WordPress 1.5.2 installation. I'd like to either export the posts to a new domain/fresh install or upgrade the current install. I expected that to be easy, but getting my posts out of my existing blog does not appear to be simple at all. I only care about the posts and titles: I'd be fine with losing existing comments.

Wordpress/PHP/Dreamhost web hosting question

Wordpress/PHP/Dreamhost web hosting question: I run Wordpress 1.5.2 on a particular web page which is hosted with Dreamhost. This web page has been running fine for years and I haven't done anything to change it. However, sometime within the last few weeks, the sidebar started "choking" on a particular line of code: Nothing after this line is processed or appears on the page. If this line of code is removed, everything else appears normally. Help? [more inside]

Good community forum software?

I'm looking for easy-to-manage community forum software. I run a site hosted at Dreamhost, and would like to add a message board for community discussion. I'm not averse to using phpbb (which Dreamhost can auto-install) if it can be made administrator-friendly. (I find the current admin panel a frustrating pile of crap.) In particular, I don't want to have to mess with spam user registrations. Ideally users could register and use the site with ease, while spammers would be blocked with minimal intervention on my part. (Kind of how WordPress/Akismet deals with spam comments.) I rather like the Joel on Software discussion group layout — clean, simple, yet effective. Willing to pay, if needed.
