    I like how php based apps are deployed here

    I have tested other solutions , and I had some issues with Nginx because it was giving me 405 error everytime someone tried to make a post request to my server url, but with Laravel Forge that didn't happen and it was all smooth and successful.

  • I know how to make a web app. I don't know how to deploy it
    I'm sure a bunch of people more knowledgeable than me will point you towards trendy solutions like Forge, Vapor, Heroku (is that still a thing ?) and other providers, so I'm not going to tell you about that because I'm not familiar with them. What I am familiar with though is hosting apps on my (or my company's) own servers, and this is what it always boils down to, except some services will do most of the work... - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago

  • Ask HN: What should I use instead of Heroku?
    For PHP has got a lot of traction, but it's notc cheap especially for small apps. If you hadn't wanted the Docker-based backing I would suggest trying one of the services that automates setting up your VMs at AWS, DigitalOcean, Linode etc like,,, etc. - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago

    If you know ssh or would like to dive into it, I’d give deployer a go. If not, just use forge. You’ll need git for both of these. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

  • Yes, PHP Is Worth Learning/Using in $Current_year
    This is not accurate. While some shared hosts offer node or rails you will be limited by memory and it might not even run your app. The reason PHP is so good for shared hosting is that it runs per request and when you have rarely visited PHP application it requires basically no resources. You can have 100s of small websites sharing resources that get few visitors a day on single server and it will be fine. Try... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago

    Not all my personal projects use deployer or the GitHub Actions deploy method … yet. For a few projects it doesn't make sense to add all this complexity.
