SiteGround offer a number of hosting plans. This guide is for their shared hosting, not virtual private servers (VPS). They are suitable where you only expect a small number of concurrent users, or want to use the hosting as staging or to test out some design ideas with a client.
These instructions have been tested with their 'Go-Geek' plans, allowing multiple websites to be hosted under the same account.
There looks to be a lot of steps but each is very quick, and most will be needed in all hosting arrangements.
- 1.Setup the server environment
- 2.Create a database
- 3.Clone the code to the server
- 4.Composer Install the vendor folder
- 5.Swap running site over to the new deployment
Plus optional steps to add an SSL certificate (why not), create a cron job to run the scheduler, send email or run a queue.
