Resources for moving a php website into production

0 votes

I'm really new to web development and only just learning php which is all very exciting, but I've hit a roadblock. I've created my first php website using XAMPP as a development environment, and it looks great, but now I'm
totally lost as to how to move it onto a remote server and actually put it on the web! I never thought this would be the hardest step for me! Can someone help me with the following questions...

  1. Which hosting company is the best bang for your buck/easiest to configure for php applications?

  2. Are there any good resources for learning how to get a website onto that server?

  3. What should I be using...SSH or SFTP and why?

  4. Anything else you think I should know about to make this step easier in the future?

Thanks for all the help!

  1. You can try Amazon AWS which is best, if you are looking for cheaper option then try
  2. Basically, you've to upload the files and create database. You need to change database connection settings in your code.
  3. SFTP is user friendly
  4. Hosting service provides good tech support if you face any issue.

I have an app with users in one timezone with the date / time stored in their location. Now there are more users in more locations and I would like to support them - ideally without changing to historical data.

At the moment the app uses a time offset field to allow two people to see one note expressed in their timezone.

There are two use cases for this one is the free/busy calendar, the other is the meeting invite ICS file.

At the moment I would like to support ICS which are GMT based.

My guess is that:

  • Assign each user to their own timezone
  • I take the diary row ($start_date, $start_time) and convert it to a GMT timestamp
  • Make the ICS file

I am keen to hear of better solutions or ideas.
