PHP version on CLEO webservers..
So i've just gone to seriously consider upgrading our school joomla installation to 1.6. I've waited until a few releases after the initial one (just to let them squash those initial bugs) and until the template we're using received an update for 1.6 (which it did a week ago). Great I thought - with the exception of some less-important addons we'd be in a position to do this.
Joomla 1.6 needs PHP 5.2.4 or higher (which was released Aug 07). Seems the servers where our school site is hosted in west lancs still uses PHP 5.1.6 from Aug 06! Google searching suggests there isn't a way around this other than to upgrade PHP.
A bit stuck now! Anyone from Westfield/CLEO I could contact to let them know this? I am sure there are others who will want to upgrade but can't because WF/CLEO would rather use a PHP version nearly 5 years out of date!
