It is possible to install SilverStripe on a shared hosting account, as long as the hosting provider meets the system requirements for SilverStripe.
To install SilverStripe on a shared hosting account, you will need to follow the same basic steps as for a VPS installation. This includes uploading the SilverStripe files to your hosting account, creating a database, and running the installation script.
Here is a brief overview of the steps involved in installing SilverStripe on a shared hosting account:
Download the SilverStripe installer package from the SilverStripe website.
Extract the installer package and upload the files to your hosting account using FTP or a file manager provided by your hosting provider.
Create a MySQL database and user for SilverStripe.
Run the installation script by accessing the install.php file in your web browser (e.g. http://yourdomain.com/install.php).
Follow the prompts in the installation wizard to complete the installation.
Keep in mind that the specific steps for creating a database and uploading files may vary depending on your hosting provider. You may need to consult your hosting provider’s documentation or contact their support team for assistance.
