I'm new to PHP and I'd like to use a particular PHP framework for a project and I was wondering whether a framework has to be supported by the hosting provider in order for it to be available? Or is it enough that they support PHP?

They don't normally support frameworks directly.  You need to check the version of PHP and the extensions required by the framework.  That will tell you whether it will work.

Download it and install it.  What are you looking at?  They usually have installation instructions.

In that case, you can check the php version and extensions needed for the php framework.. you can just create one file called phpinfo.php and add these lines to check,

<?php

echo phpinfo();

?>

Here is what I would do.  Ask the hosting provider if they support the framework you want to use.  You will have a close relationship with them, might as well start now!

And if they say "Huh?  What?", hang up and call the next one.
