      Ugh – I can’t believe he did this. Yes. He has the hump.

      He overcharged me in 3 consecutive invoices and I called him on it. I have proof he did it. Can’t believe he’s made it public.

      I’ll delete his account.

    “Another example of the mirage is the famous rocket stack is in fact just a collection of readily available free software most hosting companies will help you configure the same for a fraction of the price.”

    While I can’t make comment on the other aspects of this post – This comment is true though the rocket stack is just a collection of free software. As your billing is in pounds it is potentially possible to find someone that will configure a very similar stack at a lower cost. But realistically you even had a guide on how to setup the old stack yourself so this is not new news. I’m not saying you should setup the stack for free etc.

    Config server etc charge $130 us to setup a cpanel server and that’s a pretty easy setup so with a more complicated stack like the rocket stack i’d expect it to cost more.

      I don’t set up cPanel for anyone – I hate cPanel. I bill in pounds because I’m Scottish.

      If you want to install the Rocket Stack yourself you CAN – I don’t hold my information and knowledge back – here’s the guide to do it yourself for free:

      You are correct, it’s a collection of free software, but it’s highly configured etc with my configs, all available for free at the link above, all personally configured by me (I’ve moved away from using Ansible now thanks to too much confusion over config setup with it).

      You are more than welcome to hire a developer to follow my guide above if you wish – I charge what I charge, but I provide all DIY guides I personally use for such work for free. You can’t surely criticise that?
