I have a custom PHP 7.4 app that’s written without using a framework or CMS. It connects to a MySQL database. Is there some tutorial on how to deploy to App Platform ?

Hi @anjanesh,

Yes, there is official documentation on App Platform and how to create an App for PHP. What you can check is the following:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/languages-frameworks/php/

Additionally, if this is not what you were looking for, you can check the Build System section where you can choose PHP - App Platform PHP Buildpack:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/build-system/cloud-native-buildpacks/php/

Hope this helps!

  • Thank you - I finally figured it out. Are there any restrictions that PHP can do ? There used to be a lot when Google App launched PHP a decade ago like not being able to use filegetcontents or similar functions.
