oAuth Provider - Possible on Dreamhost?


#1

Hey guys,

I am working on a project where I want to create an oAuth Provider (Server), consulting the tutorial “How to write a complete OAuth Provider in PHP5”.

I realise that tutorial talks about installing the PHP OAuth Library and adjusting the php.ini file, which I realise is probably not possible on the shared server offering from DreamHost, but I have also checked other options which speak about Zend OAuth support.

Is it possible to host an OAuth Provider on Dreamhost (without using a Private Server)?
Are there any recommended tutorials for OAuth on DreamHost?

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Luke

Installing the PHP oAuth extension should be possible on shared hosting, in fact, if you’re using PHP 5.3. See the instructions at http://wiki.dreamhost.com/PHP.ini#Compiling_PHP_5.3_extensions for details.
