This notice is to make you aware of a few important server changes that we will be making in the near future. All three changes will happen starting on September 6th, 2010.
The first change is that we will no longer be offering PHP 4.x. This version is no longer being supported and will have no further bug or security fixes. This means all servers will run PHP 5.x only on the server's upgrade date. If you have any software that requires PHP 4.x and is not compatible with PHP 5.x, you will need to make sure it is up to date and PHP 5.x compatible. You can enable PHP 5.x for your site now by logging into your control panel, clicking on PHP Configuration, and selecting PHP 5 as the default. If you don't do this we will make this change for you at the time the server is updated.
We will also be changing the way that PHP 5 runs on our servers. We will be switching to suPHP, which will allow the processes to run as your user ID rather than running as the same user ID for everyone on the server.
In addition to PHP updates, we will be updating mySQL on all servers from version 4.x to 5.x. This may also affect some software and you should check with your software vendors to make sure any installed scripts are compatible.
The changes will be made in the morning hours on the dates listed below. While we don't expect any issues, we are of course available to assist you in case you need help. Feel free to contact our support team if you have any questions or see any issues during the change.
We will also be posting in the forum hosting status section as servers are changed. That url is http://forums.asmall...hosting-status/
The timeline for this change is listed below.
