CodeIgniter on OpenShift

This git repository helps you get up and running quickly w/ a CodeIgniter installation on OpenShift. The backend database is MySQL and the database name is the same as your application name (using $_ENV['OPENSHIFT_APP_NAME']). You can call your application by whatever name you want (the name of the database will always match the application).

Running on OpenShift

Create an account at

Create a php application with mysql (you can call your application whatever you want)

rhc app create ci php-5.3 mysql-5.1

Add this upstream CI repo

cd ci
git remote add upstream -m master git://
git pull -s recursive -X theirs upstream master
# note that the git pull above can be used later to pull updates to CI

Then push the repo upstream

git push

That's it, you can now checkout your application at:



GIT_ROOT/.openshift/action_hooks/deploy: This script is executed with every 'git push'. Feel free to modify this script to learn how to use it to your advantage. By default, this script will create the database tables that this example uses.

If you need to modify the schema, you could create a file 
GIT_ROOT/.openshift/action_hooks/alter.sql and then use
GIT_ROOT/.openshift/action_hooks/deploy to execute that script (make sure to
back up your application + database w/ 'rhc app snapshot save' first :) )
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
