I need a host with PHP and MySQL for free. Here are my requirements:
10MB storage (5 MB minimum)
1 GIG transfers
MySQL with 2MB (or more) database
TELNET (not required but preffered)
GD supported for PHP
I have allreayd looked through the Web Hosting section and didn't find anything I liked. I cannot pay fpr this site yet so I need it to be free! Thanks!

Well, http://www.f2s.com gives you all this stuff...
They're slow sometimes though
But if you're making a gamessite, just go to http://www.clanbase.com and stuff, most gamessites host with php and mysql, your site has to be about games though

Yeah I went with f2s. I dunno about slow sometimes because it seems like all the time. But hey, it does say that they are experimental servers and they are slow and crash a lot so what can I expect? Anyway, thank for your reply and who knows, I just might check out that one site *evil grin*

Try nomonthlyfees.com They offer:
200 MB space
5 Gigs transfer
Free PHP v3 and v4
unlimited email accounts
Unlimited MYSQL (within your disk quota)
Telnet is an extra fee (one time)
Its $200 for the package initially $35/year thereafter
Does not give access to Apache .conf files though.
Hope it helps!
They are a great deal. (have a great reseller plan too)
I have used them for my last three sites, it's not free but it doesn't cost alot either.

you could try spaceports.com (they are slow and some things about them annoy me).....
psend.com is ok, they crashed recently but have been running ok ever since....
if you expect a high number of hits check out Acidmist.com cuz from what i understand they are the best free host around that will give you php support (dunno about mySQL but i think they do that too)
You might considerphpwebhosting.com
They aren't free but at $9.18 a month its not exactly going to send you to the poor house. Lets face it, everything about web hosting costs money (servers, bandwidth, etc.) and unless you want low speeds, and bad tech support you must fork over some doe. Just skip one or two lunches a month and you'll have the money for a good host that offers php, mysql, ftp, and telnet.
I have been using phpwebhosting for about two months and although my site is still in development I can tell you their tech support system works well.

Thats who I'm with
I'm using phpwebhosting.com right now. They were great at first but then the server I was on crashed and it has gone downhill ever since. Long downtimes, I lost all my database information. I can't take another one like that. I think I have a server lined up that I can get for free. Thank you though!
If you are in the UK you could try UKlinux at : http://www.uklinux.net
they harldy ever crash as far as i am aware. Only thing is to upload you need to be using their ISP but this can be done away with if you pay a small fee.
