Free web hosting for my site that uses PHPExcel

Jan 8, 2010 at 8:01 AM


Could anyone please recommend me a free hosting service which will allow me to use PHPExcel class. I am currently struggling with zymic hosting which don't let me upload certain file types contained in PHPExcel directory and also has some other limitations (for example, some PHPExcel internal functions can not use TMP directory)...

Thanx in advance.

I have found that does the job.

But it does not allow file creation:

Warning: fopen(report.xls) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/user_xxx/public_html/PHPExcel/Shared/OLE/OLE_Root.php on line 109


Please hlp?

Can you try to run the included tests in the "Tests" folder?

Thank you for your post koyama! I managed to get things working.

I had to set directory properties to enable file creation etc. so it works now.

Make sure your plan has enabled file creation, file sharing, etc.

I too like, though another user from a NY IT Company also mentioned that enabling file sharing is important.
