Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know a decent free host with PHP/CGI/Perl support? I want to use it to try out the scripts I have.

Thanks Oilman,

Thanks for the URLs. And thanks for the good luck, I've found that this forum is very encouraging.

I've been sending this stuff via stickymail but it seems that I'll be doing that all day now that I've started. :)

Generally we avoid posting this kind of stuff because of the who's better than who posts and the rash of 'advertising' that often crops up.

That said, I'm going to break with tradition and risk a hand slap from my fellow mods and post my stickymail correspondence here:

you might want to have a peek at hostiva.com/products.htm - they aren't free but for only $2.95 per month they might as well be. They aren't taking new clients right now but I imagine that will change soon.

There's also webstrikesolutions.com - free for the first year and $84 per year after that but you can cancel at the end of the first year if you like.

There's also good old hypermart.net. They run a banner ad for the freebie stuff but if it's just you testing some scripts and learning then that shouldn't be a big deal.

Have a look at freehostspace.com

I know they support php, 30 megs to tinker with, and optional MySQL for $3 a month.

Also have a peek at 100best-free-web-space.com

There is another alternative to free webhosting and that is installing apache,mysql,perl and php on your machine and doing all of your testing locally without the hassle of "upload and wait and upload and wait".

I found this package the other day and it installs the server environment on a windows machine in about 5 minutes (I finally found a use for my windoze box)..you don't need any hosting, the server runs as localhost.

here is the link.

That link is great. I've been wanting to install the whole thing for awhile now, but never had the time to find *all* the binaries from different websites and figure out how to install everything so it works together. Hopefully this'll do the trick. You might also consider downloading the php ide, at phpide.com I think. Its decent, kinda like the Visual Studio Interface, but with a few bugs.
