Shared Hosting for Drupal 7

I was asked in a forum not long ago if you could install Drupal 7 on shared hosting. I did a look through the hosting requirements found on, and gave the answer "yes if you are careful." The problem is that I had always used a VPS for my Drupal installs so I figured a test would be in order. The only shared hosting company that I use Is ICDSoft and I got them to agree to give me a free space just for a test install. I'm happy to report all went well and the results can be seen here

A year later(06/14/2012) and I'm going to let that test account go and the domain name expire. It proved it's point to me.
