    URGENT - WAP sites

    Hi,

    Is it possible to host WAP sites on the webspace BTYahoo provides? If not does anyone know of where I can host one I've programmed myself? (wapdrive's register link doesn't seem to work).

    Also, is it possible to use PHP with WAP sites?

    I'm looking to make a simple WAP site for someone by christmas so I really need to know!

    Thanks,

    Neil

    I don't know about hosting WAP sites, but I don't really see why you can't use PHP. It's all done server-side, so as long as it's output is "WAP friendly" I don't see why not.

    I don't know anything about WAP sites , but if you're refering to uploading files:
    1. Sign up on the forums and request a hosting account.
    2. Once you have your username and password, open cPanel.
    3. Click on "File Manager" and upload your files.

    If you really want, I can upload the files to my account for a month or however long you want them up?

    Thanks v much for the offer, but I've tried uploading a wml (wap) page to my hosting that comes with my internet connection and it doesn't work; I think you need a special server to host wap sites.

    Thanks anyway,
