  1. Hi Tony, thanks for making this video. I follow your steps and my website was live, for 2-3 months, now it’s not responding what do I do. Need help!!!

  2. I get the following error when I test using nginx -t : "the "user" directive makes sense only if the master process runs with super-user privileges"
    Not sure what to do or why? Also when I head to the IP it still refuses to connect, this video seems good just can't get it working for me

  3. This is very mind boggling! Can't you do a layman's version of acquiring free hosting from Google, without the command prompt stuff? 😱

  4. thanks for a great tutorial. how i can upload a database backup to this created database..i mean i am migrating my web
    or where i can find phpmyadmin panel
    really appreciate your quick answer

  5. HI thanks for the video. It is possible if i just wana host html files, css, and js only? thanks

  6. You didn't mention the way GCP leaves sudo set up, where the two initially created accounts can sudo to root without a password. I think that's very dangerous

  7. Hi developers. I am begginer and I have a problem.

    Before 13:00 login mysql username & password, shall we wait for few hours first? Cause immediate operation will finally show 504 Gateway Time-out.

  8. Great video! I'm a newbie and I was able to setup my vm in gcp successfully and accessing the website via the external IP also works. My problem is my Google domain never points to this IP. I tried using custom name servers based on the gcp-vm instance. But after three days of waiting for the propagation delay, the website still does not get accessed via the domain names. Help?

  9. does this mean – it will only be free for one month – then the $5.08/ Will apply going forward?

  10. Hi Tony, I want to change the upload limit from 2M to 128M, what can I do?
    Thanks for your help.

  11. with the restrictions that google cloud gives what would be the maximum amount of people you could have using your site at once before it starts to lag or even crash.

  12. *****This deserves an award!
    Here is man has got it together knows and owns the process .
    What he teaches works !
    This is the go to place for web hosting set up look no further .

    Thanks you did a great job

  13. First, thanks for continuing to respond to posts, even after a year! So, you're saying your service continues to be free? I set up my site scrupulously mimicking your settings (N1, f1-micro 1vCPU/614MB RAM), and the only odd thing is Google bumped my network to 'premium' (I since moved it back to standard). A couple weeks ago my 90-day 'evaluation' expired and Google said I had to move to actual billing or my content would be unavailable: they're now estimating Dec usage at $10. $120/yr isn't the end of the world, but it's also far from free …

  14. That signing in proccess drove me insane security has become insanity AI that is not artifical intelegance its real stupidity
