Kirby on Netlify


#1

Has anyone tried deploying a Kirby site to Netlify via github?

I was testing this today with the starter template but what i got was the default netlify 404 page.
The site works fine on my local server.

I’m thinking it has something to do with the .htaccess file being ignored on netlify but im not sure.
If anyone has successfully coupled Kirby and Netlify before, any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks

Well, its worse than that - Netlify is intended for static sites. Its expecting plain old html or sites controlled by a headless CMS hosted elsewhere. There is no PHP or anything as far as i can tell.

Not possible.

Netlify is intended for static websites (HTML/CSS/JS)
Kirby runs on dynamic language PHP, which is not allowed on Netlify.

i see. thanks for the answers. in that case, do you folks have a similar service to recommend? heroku etc


#5

Which kind of “service” are you looking for?

Hi farisk, Arrived here 'cause I was also trying to host on Netlify. Did you find a solution to your Kirby hosting?

Thanks
David

well as others have mentioned here. its not possible on netlify.

i’ve also tried heroku. the site works ok but the admin pages dont run.

so i just bought a normal web hosting and uploaded everything there.
