To deploy CodeIgniter on Hostinger, you can follow these steps:
- Log in to your Hostinger account and go to the control panel.
- Click on the "File Manager" option.
- In the File Manager, navigate to the "public_html" directory or create a new directory if you want to deploy CodeIgniter in a subdirectory.
- Click on the "Upload" button to upload the CodeIgniter files (zip file or extracted folder) to the desired location.
- Once the files are uploaded, select the CodeIgniter files and click on the "Extract" button to extract the files if you uploaded a zip file.
- Rename the "application" and "system" folders to ensure their names are in lowercase (e.g., "application" and "system").
- If you want to deploy CodeIgniter in a subdirectory, create a new directory and move all the extracted CodeIgniter files into it.
- Create a new MySQL database in the "Databases" section of the control panel if your CodeIgniter application requires a database.
- Update the CodeIgniter configuration file "application/config/database.php" with the MySQL database credentials, including hostname, username, password, and database name.
- After configuring the database, you can access your CodeIgniter application by visiting your website URL.
Remember to consult Hostinger's documentation or support if you encounter any issues during the deployment process.
