ph7CMS script is apparently not supported on infinityfree.net hosting which sadly is really reducing the whole infinity theme quite a bit.
Which sucks because I think the admin and users here are awesome and good people.
ph7CMS is one of the most complete social site apps I have seen so far which is free. I was not even able to complete gettting it up for testing before the account was locked for 23 hours due to cpu usage supposedly. So, to remedy this I try to read the information given about my apparent infraction. Yet, all I see is word soup about how its too complicated to explain how the cpu usage is calculated. I am quite sure I know how to comprehend a proper explanation but the idea is to attempt to get me to purchase service I-slow.net I get that. My partner and I are the only two users who have tested this domain since i began setting it up. EVEN IF IT WAS NOT FOR THIS ISSUE, there is still the portion of the script which requires ffmpeg as well as other mods probably. But there is no way I would purchase service from a host who is this strict during a testing period. I will just build my own server and put it in my rack. I have found the script I want to mod into what I want to build. This hosting made it easy for me to find this script, Thank you. Honestly though I have ZERO ACTUAL proof that the advertised hosting services can even handle my application. I have never experienced any thing like this from any other free host. I admit that it has been quite some time since I have used a remote hosting service. But common, I cant even test a site I just installed before I get booted for 23 hours? This host is supposed to be in a massive datacenter? Now I cannot say its not partly the fault of the script, but I cannot say it is either. I have not been able to even finish setting it up and modifying it let alone doing any low to mild stress testing. Which leads me to the following review. infinityfree.net is a good place to setup a set of three accounts for your personal HOMEPAGE and basic usage. It is not a place to setup a modern interactive site with social media features in anyway unless all load is client side meaning offloaded to the client instead of the server. In this case one is better to just setup a page to offer a distributed application to install on a device or computer and leave the datacenter or server farm out all together. I would literally get better uptime for this application from the cheapest Comcast personal connection and a 10 year old gaming desktop running BSD or Linux. Showing me the cool gadgets and then pulling the lure and bait at such times just agitates me.I literally refuse to pay for service or products from anyone who thinks this is a good practice. I have transferred a clients recently purchased domain here. I started regretting that the day after I did this because I am having a difficult time just getting this stuff to allow me to finish when I have the time to actually work on it. If myself and one other person cannot use the site before its locked down for resources then im going to have an impossible time selling your services to others who are my clients. So, I will keep my accounts I guess for now. But, I am far too busy to have such ridiculous interruption even using a free service.
Free is great if it actually has substance, As a site for hundreds or thousands in a group I don’t see it. Even a free site should handle a few hundred users. My recommendation would be to rename the service to finitebutfree.net
I am not trying to be disrespectful, or sound ungrateful. I am being real and transparent. If I cannot build, test, and stress test my full application on a service to see if they can actually support it then they should be excessively upfront about these limitations during the signup so as to not waste my time and such.
unlimited space to not store files over 10mb
unlimited bandwidth to allow you to trip your actual limitations, i-nodes and database usage due to ram and processors usage from scripting which was offered from a service tied to the CP of the service.
With today’s processors these limitations seem ridiculous.
My recommendation is to advertise as a homepage builder or limited usage server. This is 2020 and building an acceptable interactive social site here is problematic at best.
Another recommendation although I think Admin cares I don’t think the data-center does
Before collecting any data from users and especially before allowing them to waste time transferring a domain you need to make the limitations upfront in your face clear and in detail.
Personally from What I see in the forum I would guess the Admin is sick of this as well but is tied tight to contract or has no control over these things.
A finite service or product, even if free, needs a purpose which is clear. Other than basic low traffic usage homepage like sites I don’t see what I could do here to prove to a client that their sites are going to be awesome and served on an awesome network. I am considered to be very patient by most people.
There really needs to be about a 30day period where you monitor accounts closely but give wiggle room while they are building and testing. I don’t see how this business model sells service to anyone. I guess my next trick will be to buy my own domain and signup for myownfreehost* etc… maybe this will allow me the flex room I need. I will keep the accounts here for now if what I am saying here is not taken wrong. So, I think I will take OxyDac’s suggestion and install these applications on my local network until I get them perfected and stress tested. But this is not going to tell me how it will run on your service free or premium. What does tell me that is what got me booted temporarily for 23 hours. Basic usage of a php script by a couple of people. There is no way I would pay for anything coming from anyone who runs things that way. so i-FAST If you are reading I don’t see the speed or power you are boasting about. Stop making things difficult on your Admins and affiliates. If clients can prove they can make money using these accounts they will move in to start buying.
But traffic brings eyeballs and ears and those things bring ads and that brings ad revenue.
I-FAST NEEDS TO BE MOE FLEXIBLE.
As my unlcle mike used to say when he had his nervous breakdown, Help me earn a dollar I’ll help you make a buck.
Here is the kicker though the client I am bringing isn’t really in it for the money because they don’t know What I know. Which is they have a market cornered in a way which can be steered. They are wanting a site for their hobby of mycology microscopy. But they are mainly on Facebook. If I am going to help her pull them away from Facebook which most of them actually complain about and hate then I have to be able to offer basic social media features in house. YES, its 2020 I think every site should be capable of these things even if they are free sites.
your servers l know my IPs and know its my account and that im testing. ITS REALLY IGNORANT TIME TO BOOT A PERSON WHEN THERE IS NO OTHER USAGE OR ADVERTISEMENT OF THE SITE.
