hey, would it be possible for me to host a serverlet using tomcat under a dreamhost acct?



Upon searching in dreamhost wiki (, I got these results on what youare looking for.

Dreamhost has Java installed, but you cannot run JavaServlets nor JSP.

I hope this answers your question.

Dreamhost has issues with it’s CPU usage (which is called the CPU Minutes) which is basically one of the reasons why JavaServlets are not allowed.

thanks! i decided to use php/mysql after doing more research! although not sure of how to install these, do i jsut download them and use ftp?


You don’t need to install them, PHP and MySQL are available on all shared servers.

There are times where you might want to compile/install a custom installation of PHP for your site, to gain access to configuration options not available in the standard DreamHost install, but this is not too common.
