Where can I host phpBB for free?

Post by myallmert » Thu Feb 22, 2018 7:15 pm

Hello,
I'm looking for a site which I can install and host phpBB forum for free (need very small space).
I tried to use 000webhost (hostinger) but I'm having problem with it,
Do you know any other site which is recommended to host phpBB?

We cannot really recommend a host, but we do recommend that you visit WebHostingTalk. We highly recommend that you do not use a free host. Most of them have issues and limitations. However, if you must use a free host FreeHostingTalk can assist you in locating one.

Free hosts are usually about as good as the cost suggests (ie not very)

Hosting can be had very cheaply these days. Have a look in The Teams signatures and websites as some of us have links to our hosting company.

With a quick search I found at least 5 offering free hosting with at least 10 GB dataspace, 100 GB traffic, PHP, MySQL etc..
Since it's free you could always try them out (which you would have to do with any suggestion from here anyway). You can't lose anything with trying.
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)

Can you tell me here or in private the sites please?

You may want to use our mighty friend BigG: https://cloud.google.com/ -> the first year is free. ;)
I didn't try it yet, though.

Make sure you can get database backups without fee, or you may lose your board.
