Uploading CI Website

Hi,
This is the first time I’m building a website and using CodeIgniter and I was wondering whether you have any tips on uploading CI to a free web host.

Can I just upload the entire CI folder? Or do I have to upload individual files (God no!)? What are my options?

What about my MySQL database - do I just upload my mysqldump to the webhost?

Also, can you recommend a good free webhost. I was thinking about 000webhost.

Any other suggestions will be more than welcome. Thanks!

Just upload whatever you have on your development server/desktop/laptop. You should have:

/system folder
/application folder (if you have moved it out of system folder
index.php file
.htaccess file (if you have set to remove index.php from your urls')

Not sure on free web hosts, but you generally find hosting for around $3-4 bucks a month. That's about the cost of a sandwich each month. With a paid account, you'll be assured that you will have access to all the things needed for any site, like MySQL, email, ftp, image libraries, and etc.

I would advise paying the small sum for paid hosting. Free hosting is often very unreliable.
Free hosting may also limit access to the free mysql database so connecting to and dumping sql data into the database may be tricky.
