Some time ago the Orinoco project was cloud-hosted on Pagodabox. This time the host in the cloud is IBM Bluemix.
Step 1: Sign up for a 30 day trial at https://console.ng.bluemix.net/registration.
Step 2: After the registration procedure is completed create an app, here the app name is orinoco. The route will become https://eu-de.mybluemix.net. The organisation name is assessmentee.com. As an Cloud Foundry app select .php. As space name dev was selected.
Step 3: “Download, modify, and redeploy your Cloud Foundry app with the command line interface” by installing Bluemix_CLI_0.5.4_amd64.exe
Step 4: Open Powershell:

Step 6: Create a local project. This can be any folder, in the demonstration the folder contains a single file index.php with content phpinfo();
Step 7. Push this project to space dev:
>bx cf push orinoco Invoking 'cf push orinoco'... Updating app orinoco in org assessmentee.com / space dev as firstname.lastname@example.org... OK Uploading orinoco... Uploading app files from: C:\xampp\htdocs\bluemix Uploading 151B, 1 files Done uploading OK
