    Dmacleo,

    Thank you. I have identified another host who informs me that i can install whatever version of PHP i like? (not somethign i have personally done before to be honest so a little aprehensive)

    I previously installed ipBoard myself so would like to think that there is not much difference in the procedure?

    What is the chance you could make me aware (non public of course) of the 5-8 shared hosts that you have used to see if they are the same as who i have been looking at allready?

    thank you

    arran

    Andy,

    Thank you. it appears that i may have to identify another host if they cannot provide a newer version of PHP.

    then they are either liars or idiots.

    since IP themselves offers shared hosting maybe worth looking at them for this.


    I have looked at this as an option but the cost is far to significant for what we wish when compared to the one payment for self hosting

    Hi,

    I used to hold a licence for ipBOARD on our website that closed just over 12 months ago. we are now movign to new web hosts and re-creatign the site and wish to return to ip board as we liked and had a good relationship with it.

    looking at the system requirments i see that the followign is required:

    Having spoken to our new hosts (not yet signed up to them)


    [*] PHP 5.2.0+

    [*]SPL Extension [*]DOM XML Extension [*]Recommended: JSON Extension

    MySQL 4.1+ (MySQL 5+ is recommended)


    Having spoken to our new hosts (not yet signed up to them) http://www.fasthosts.co.uk/web-hosting/ they have informed me that the latest version of PHP they provide is 5.1.6 and they are confident that i will struggle to locate a host that provides a shared hosting package that will give a newer version?

    Our siter requirments are met wholy by the shared Host capability, less this aspect and to move to a dedicated or virtual server is a significant increase in cost and is far more capability than we require.

    my question to the forum is:

    Whilst the recomended is PHP 5.2 + do you know if the latest version of ipBOARD will actually work with PHP 5.1.6? or indeed can anyone offer any advice?

    thank you in advance for your guidance and help

    regards
