On our hosting platform we have not enabled PHP support at this time.

I cannot upload the php file from a CoffeeCup LiveChat script.
I have used CoffeeCup Free FTP, CoffeeCup VisualSite and my last try was through browser connection.

I believe the LiveChat is not working because I cannot upload the .php file to the site. The site is www.audiobok.com

Please help!

Folks,

Scott repeats a one-line response to the PHP support question:
PHP is not supported on S-Drive at this time.

I read this as shorthand for:
Coffee Cup's S-Drive is a nice, easy-to-use and safe publishing service for Web sites that don't require server-side scripting. Maybe CC will extend S-Drives capability or offer something else more ambitious in the future, but that is a whole different discussion.

Please understand that PHP support is problematical. It's possible to do all sorts of things with a server-side scripting language, including making one's site vulnerable to attack or subverting the hosting service's security. Also, the next shoe to drop beyond supporting PHP would be general support of database systems, such as MySQL, MariaDB or MongoDB. This is fraught with its own issues.

With S-Drive, CC chose (cleverly, IMHO) to keep things simple by focussing on the client side of Web development. This is where CC has lived traditionally, and the "responsive design" movement shows that there remains much to contribute there.

Hi Scott and Halfnium....I got hosting with CoffeeCup only because i thought it would be easy to use all the tools done by the company :-(.....
Well, seems that I will need to have a second domain hosted elswhere just to have LiveChat working. :-((

You could just use one of the free hosting services out there and put the live chat in an iframe on your site.
