Nearly Free Speech
For a very low cost hosting option, Nearly Free Speech can host Open Outreach sites at under $1 per month, Open Outreach user Steve Swartz reports. Steve's tips for getting Open Outreach working on Nearly Free Speech:
- Change the group of default files to Web and changing the top level scripts: install.php, index.php and update.php to Group Web and permissions of 0644.
- Up the memory to at least 48M for a minimal install with few apps enabled. Likely you'll need a higher amount of memory than 48M--but upping the setting will increase your cost by only a few cents per month.
