[TUTORIAL] Installation of CraftCMS on 000webhost


#1

Hello! :smiley:

Today we are going to install Craft CMS on the free 000webhosting platform!

Requirements:

  1. around 15 minutes of time needed
  2. PHP 5.3.0 or later (000webhost provides a slider selection of 5-7! So we are fine!)
  3. MySQL 5.1.0 or later (000webhost provides the requirements needed!)
  4. The latest version of Craft CMS > https://craftcms.com/

So firstly head over to their site and download the CMS of Craft.

Once downloaded head over to 000webhost.com and login to your members area.

Create a new site or edit an existing one

Now launch the File Manager to begin the upload!

Once uploaded simply extract,

Or use Unzipper! https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ndeet/unzipper/master/unzipper.php

Paste the code into a new file in your root such as unzipper.php then launch in the browser!

Once unzipped place the craft folder outside of public_html

Then move the files from public into public_html

Now head to the database manager on 000webhost.com and make a new database/user and keep note of the details

Once created put these details into the db.php file within craft/config outside of the public_html folder

Once you’ve completed that run the installer by visiting

yoursite.000webhostapp.com/index.php/admin/install

Create your administrator account

Setup your site title and URL

It will now take around 10 seconds to complete the full installation!

Ta-da! Easy as that!

Your site is now live

Now for you to start building your site and pour in the creative content required to embrace your visitors!

Happy site building!
