Cloud (vs. Local) Testing Environments?


What would you suggest for a cloud based testing environment. Essentially, I would like to deploy a test site for my project for two purposes: 1) client viewing and 2) for server side testing (need PHP and MySQL) - I would like to test a few things with webhooks that I cannot do locally. I have done this with a rails project using heroku before, but what non-local testing environments do you use for your projects?

Hi Joe,

Heroku also supports PHP. If you are already familiar with platform, it might be the easiest option.
