000webhost: Hydroserver Lite 3.0 will not setup


Following along with the 'HydroServer Lite Installation Guide.pdf' originally written for Hydroserver 2.0, results in many hang-ups. Perhaps 000webhost has changed their configuration since this installation document was written.
  1. Upload files must be less than 5.0 MB each according to the 000webhost file manager. Hydroserver Lite is 7.6 MB and fails to upload. (This can be avoided by uploading the files in a piecemeal fashion)
  2. Navigating to does not display the Hydroserver 'Begin Installation' page. This was attempted on Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon using both Firefox 38.0 and Chromium 43.0; also attempted on Windows 7 Professional using Firefox 38.0.5 (Screen shot is attached).

Able to resolve this by adding an appropriately edited 'default.php' file to applications/config/installations. Accessed setup by going to:

Note: enter the mysql host exactly as reported when the database is setup by 000webhost.
