I want to ask whether we can deploy php website with advanced features like JWT auth and etc on infinityfree or is it only made for basic php sites?
Well, you can use phpinfo() to see whether the features that you want are available on free hosting
PHP is PHP. If there is PHP code to do it, you can pretty much do it here. There is no such thing as “PHP Light” that only has half the functionality and can only be used for “basic sites” (whatever that may mean). That wouldn’t be PHP.
JWT auth is just PHP code. We couldn’t stop you from doing that even if we wanted to.
There are a couple of things you do need to be aware of:
- We have most standard PHP extensions. If you have code that needs uncommon extensions, you won’t be able to use it here.
- Some core PHP functions have been disabled on our hosting for security or performance reasons. Notable examples are any functions that execute system commands, and also process forking (pcntl) functions are disabled.
- We provide hosting for websites. Our hosting is intended for things that produce web pages. Not for APIs, data processing, file storage or anything else.
