Need free web hosting and sub domain for php

Posted 07 November 2011 - 08:18 AM

I am looking to get back into php and am looking for a free web hosting and sub domain that i can practice on. Does anyone have any ideas? Not worried about banner ads or anything, just need to be able to have MySQL databases and PHP capabilities. I have tried for a few weeks now to fix my wamp but have been unsuccessful, when I click on PHPMYadmin I am getting a 403 error, I have tried to google a solution but non have worked so just going for web hosting now if it exists? thank you!

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You could take a look into webs.com, though I am not sure if their free service allows you to use PHP/ MySQL...

Personally, I would suggest setting up a virtual machine and configuring that to be a LAMP server. Here are the steps to doing that:
1. Download and install VM Ware Player, from http://www.vmware.com
1.a. This will require that you register, but it is a free product
2. Download Ubuntu (just for simplicity's sake) from http://www.ubuntu.com/
3. Open VM Ware Player
3.a. Click "Create New Virtual Machine"
3.b. Follow the setup wizard. Make sure to point it to your ubuntu iso file that you downloaded earlier.
3.c. I would also suggest giving the VM 1 GB RAM and a 10 GB HDD (that should be more than enough in both cases)
4. Install Ubuntu on the VM (start the VM and tell it to install Ubunut, along with VM Ware Tools).
5. Now, type the following command:
sudo apt-get install apache2 php5 libapache2-mod-php5 mysql-server libapache2-mod-auth-mysql php5-mysql phpmyadmin

5.a. Hit enter, type in your password, and it will do its thing.
5.b. When it is installing mysql you will need to put in a root password
6. Now that it is done installing use the following command:
sudo service apache2 restart

7. Your LAMP server is now set up and running. Congrats.

Hope that helps.
