Over on Hosting for Your Drupal Creations, I lay out the good and the bad of my experiences hosting Drupal on DreamHost. Some updates:
One-Click Install for Drupal
I updated the hosting article to reflect that DreamHost now includes Drupal among its many one-click installation options, which include other content management systems, wiki platforms, photo gallery platforms, and more. As of this writing, the DreamHost one-click option will perform a "simple installation" of Drupal 6.20, handing you a ready-for-dev setup.
Is that a good thing? No doubt so, if you want a quick Drupal installation to play around with, or to get a simple site up and running fast. But if you're serious about using Drupal, the option probably means nothing; you'll learn much more about Drupal by installing it yourself, and will have more freedom in building the site you want. As the installer itself notes,
Simple One-Clicks are automatically updated and provide a selection of themes and plugins. Customization options are very limited. Read more about Drupal and DreamHost: An Update
