I’d like to provide recipes for other shared hosts, too. If you’re using Switchtower with Site5, Planet Argon or others, please send me a copy of your Switchtower recipe so I can post a generic version here.
The problem with Dreamhost (and maybe others) is that there’s no standard source control included. I’m using the Subversion server provided with my TextDrive account, even for sites I host at Dreamhost.
What do you use for source code control with your shared host?
