Install WordPress on AppFog Cloud PaaS : Conclusion
You probably got very much fun to Install WordPress on AppFog. Simply because its like signing up for Facebook. But honestly I got no fun. This a kind of packaged solution which third class webhost Hostgator promoted – one click WordPress installation. This is basically makes a new to be serious WordPress user to learn nothing. The technology is different, the process is right unlike those script based installation but it actually do not make the new user to understand a big fact – WordPress apparently easy to install, but the basic Linux, Apache, PHP, MySQL is not that easy, this LAMP drives WordPress and when a problem arises, the user can not troubleshoot it. It is quite obvious that the anger ultimately fired on WordPress.org forum – “Where is your support ? you use to tell that WordPress provides big support.” It is not possible to make the user understand, there is a problem with an extra space in wp-config.php file, WordPress has nothing to do with it, it is not any bug, open the file and deleting might solve the issue.

Very good article. I am seriously considering Appfog as a host for our web based application.
I have a question.
In the free plan. Can you host your app/blog as a primary domain. Not as a subdomain as illustrated here?!
Yes definitely you can host on main domain. But take backup everyday.
We will show setup of domain with WP on Heroku with SSL soon.
