need hosting provider for pdf mod and conversion

Jul 30, 2012 by anonymous
the pdf mod requires some sort of rdbms such as sqlite3, gnu barcode, and perl with PostScript::Simple module

the initial pdf conversion requires ghostscript (preferred) or adobe acroread

the final pdf conversion requires imagemagick convert

the process has been trivially simple to implement on my local *nix host using perl as the control flow script and sqlite3. but i'm having trouble identifying a suitable hosting provider. my command line oriented thinking suggests a remote command something like this:

     $  ssh -l <auth_user> <remote_host> label_pdf <local_src_pdf_file> <local_modified_output>

It sounds like you need a VPS. Have you checked out VPS hosting to take care of your needs? VPS hosting is basically your own private instance in the cloud of your *nix server you can do whatever you want to with (as long as the hosting provider allows it, but mostly they just restrict spam and illegal activity).
