Im trying to install the tweakmag_shipping extension via connect but im getting an error.

/public_html/downloader/pearlib/php/OS/Guess.php on line 247.

i’ve read a few posts and its something to do with a function within the php.ini on the hosting server which i dont have permission to change. Ive seen in the past some hosting companies have offered free hosting for test purposes only. I was wondering if anyone is till offering that now.

thanks in advance smile

Hi, SimpleHelix charges from $9.95 a month, with no minimum contract time. I would say that is pretty close! wink

I don’t think anyone is still offering free hosting for Magento. I suggest you to go with paid plans as they are generally more secure. wink

Very old bumping however would like to just mention that we are offering one month hosting for £1. Some well built sites on our shared servers have pingdom page loads of under 3 seconds.

Free Magento hosting will not work because magento requires strong hardware resources. I think you may take a look at such review to get an affordable magento hosting for developerment/testing
