View Full Version : PHP5 - Fluid Hosting or elsewhere?

04-13-2006, 06:59 PM
There have been several requests and discussions of PHP5 support on the forums. Here are a few:


I totally agree with the logic of waiting until it's ready. But all of these are from a while ago.

Let me say first that I'm a VERY happy Fluid Hosting customer and will recommend FH to anybody who asks. Top notch intelligent and friendly support, fast servers, and good customer-first attitude all around. :thumbup:

But right now I'm starting two different PHP 5 projects, and FH still doesn't support it. So I basically have two questions:

1. Will Fluid Hosting support PHP 5 in the near future, either as a replacement for PHP 4 (hopefully not) or as an alternative to PHP 4 (by extension, account preference, or whatever)?

2. Can anybody recommend another hosting service of quality that does support PHP 5? I'm picky and moved around a lot before finding FH, so something of equal quality would be great.

Thank you all.

I believe John, our Unix admin, was testing to run php5 on one of our web server as CGI or FastCGI. I'll notify him of this thread, so that he can give an update in regard of his testing.

An alternative would be to purchase a VPS account, where you can install or customize any applications you want, including installing php5. You can check out our VPS solution at http://www.fluidhosting.com/vps/.

PM me your domain, or open a ticket from your control panel, and ask that it be directed to me.
